I'm sure most in this tread have used the Hempy method or a variation. To anyone else who hasn't, if you are looking for a trouble free grow this is by far the easiest with the best results I have come up with.

I have used buckets of different sizes with a variety of soil/perlite medium combinations and have had luck with all. After adding perlite to 2" (relative to container size) for the reservoir I mix in some Osmocote Plus into the soil/perlite medium. After that I just add a 5ml/gal of Cal Mag to water (private well) and top the hempy reservoir when needed (around twice a week). Last two weeks of flower I stop the Cal Mag.

Just a heads up for anyone thinking about this method with the Osmocoate.

Sure, no problem. I actually use plastic trick or treat buckets that hold a little less than a gallon.

Good to know, thanks! I have a few in 32oz yogurt containers turned hempy right now. I'm going to transplant into the gallon hempys and switch two flower after a week or so.

I wasn't sure if anyone was going to respond, and was getting ready to try it out. The 32oz yogurt cups work awesome for veg, could probably keep a mother happy in one for quite some time.

My best tip right now would be, trim the roots right before you put them in the bigger buckets. Reason being, they will have a growth spurt that won't happen otherwise.

The plants love it. Can I get a witness?

You could, and one of the keys to doing that is, trim the roots once in a while, like once a month.

I'll make sure to follow that advice, as in the past while the results were good the rootball always looks like it should be bigger/more dense. I usually end with tidy cat kitty litter hempys (about 3gal+/-) and have been happy with the results each time but didn't cut the roots before the last transplant.

So you think I should cut the roots give a week for them to get settled then flip?

Short of cutting the roots: you can take a steak knife and slice the root ball from 4 sides.

Works for me.

Thanks, Pinball Wizard. When I said cut the roots, slicing laterally was what I had in mind.

Your plants look good. Are those Hempy pots?

Yeah, or scissors all the way around and on the bottom.

Dang, bro, nice looking plants there!
