This is neat as can be. Looks like you have done your homework well. You are running what I would dearly love to be if I had the room and amps available. Reading this I am so tempted to fire up a single unit for a bubba. I will sure keep an eye on what you have going here as it looks gold star good to me.

Thanks, Gry. I'm still trying to work out the initial kinks on my end but I'm confident this system is going to work really well. Enjoy the show!

After leveling all six ppk sites and setting the air gap at 3 1/4", the Cotton Candy came back to life. However, the GSC is drowning now. This is confusing. I watered yesterday every four hours, but this seems to be too much. I increased the air gap another 1/2" to a total 3 3/4" and extended the feed to flood once every six hours. The flood is taking 65 seconds.

Room temp: 85 F
Humidity: 55%
Co2: 800 ppm
Water temp: 82 F
Res: 586 ppm
Res Ph: 5.82

Wow man, everything looks great!
Nice thread.
Just one dumb question, I have searched & read & googled... what does PPK stand for/mean ?

Thanks

Fishywater, PPK stands for Passive Plant Killer.

Feeding interval is every six hours but the GSC seems to still be drowning. Rookie question: How long does it take for a plant to rebound from being over-watered? The other four girls are looking fine, but not exactly showing inches of growth a day. Something isn't working right and I'm not sure what it is...either that or I just shocked the plants so much in their first week that they're all taking a minute to get going. Hard to say.

no other clones you can pop in there? don't remember what you said in #1.

That depends on how long it takes the roots to recover and start to grow healthy. Probably a week or two before u see positive plant growth.

Ah ok. Thanks MM. I'll stop checking on them every 13 minutes, then.

Snook - I am trying to start a perpetual cycle, so with a six plant max in my state, I figure I'd get another clone when I flip the first plant, as to keep them an appropriate size for my space. At that point, I'll just be timing the spot in the tube, as it were, for the perpetual. I think that made sense...

Day 17

After a watery start, I think I'm getting the idea. I ended up culling the Cotton Candy and the Girl Scout Cookies. I drown them the first few days I transplanted them and I didn't want to wait for them to recover, so I picked up a few more clones. The Bruce Banner #3 is about 2.5 times her original size after 16 days, but I suspect that's because I was dealing with drowning the other girls, so this one didn't get all the feed she wanted.

The J1 is a lot bigger, but still pretty light in color. I am thinking it's because of the feed schedule. Ever since I fixed the perched water table problem by leveling my buckets, there have been no over-watering problems. I'm feeding for 63 seconds every 4 hours, but I'm going to increase that. The J1 looks properly hydrated but still hungry. Anybody care to chime in on the feed schedule increase? If I remember right, I thought D9 said that he put his clones straight into the 90 minute feed rotation. Is this true? If so, how big were his clones before he put them in the system?

Because I'm trying to start a perpetual grow, I decided to flip the J1 (even though she's still small). In two weeks, I'm going to take the next biggest girl and flip her. Two weeks later, the next biggest, etc.. Initially, the yields will be small, but if I'm attempting to do a perpetual six plant cycle with most strains being 8-9 weekers, I'll have to flower the first plants really small lest I overgrow my veg room with the plants waiting for their turn in the que.

Lessons learned so far: Spending a few month's pay on a grow room won't do anything for you if you overlook one detail (like leveling your ppk sites because the garage has an engineered run in the floor).

Twist - Thanks! I am using 70 quart much tubs for the bottom buckets and 7 gallon feed tubs for the top. Here are links to the exact ones I'm using (except I was able to buy my muck tubs at Coastal Farm Supply).
