I am changing up a couple of things and I have decided to go all hydro as well vertical for my fifth go round.
I have seven 5 gallon buckets with a 27 gallon controller and a 550 GPH pump feeding 1/2" lines straight to each bucket that are restricted to 1/4" inside the bucket. Drain system is 3/4" with two paths back to the controller.
Getting this RDWC setup so it doesn't leak took a lot more time than I expected and damn near killed me not to mention the wasted money but hey the damn thing works now
You can see the three different iterations I went through in my album
for this grow before finding one that works.
I am not quite done yet but getting very close so I thought I would start my grow log now.
I started germinating the following seeds on 10/14 -
1x Nirvana Feminized White Castle
1x GHS Feminized Cheese
1x GHS Feminized The Church
2x Nirvana Maui Waui
4x Mosca Negra C99 BX-1
If they all pop I will be gifting one of the Maui Waui and one of the C99's to a friend.
Working drain system and feed side that will leak
Feed side changed to all 1/2" and no freakin' leaks
Controller bucket and feed line
Pipe insulation almost done
The lights, 3x 400 watt CMH
Rehung the carbon filter
I still need to cover the buckets with Reflectix and run some extension cords for two of the air pumps and the ac.
