It all started back over a year ago when I stumbled on to Heath's flooded vertical tube. Started reading the thread and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Being new to growing at the time I wondered if results like Heath's were possible to duplicate or even... beat?
I jumped in head first with a good buddy and we went from 0 to 60 (more like 1000). No growing experience. No equipment. No idea how to proceed. Just Heath's thread.
The last year has been full of builds, tear downs, runs of varying success... Blood Sweat and Tears in short.
We have made many modifications (not sure if one can use the term improvement when discussing Heath's designs?) and gone through several variations of his original design. Finally decided that the original can't be beat and decided to give it everything I have got.
This thread will track my quest to catch Heath... New house with 6 separate flooded verticals each running 1200 watts.
I hesitate to post pics after reading Agent Smith's posts. I thought my game was tight until I watched this guy. Beautiful work. Now I feel like all of my stuff is a bit embarrassing, but oh well. Here is a little appetizer of the new veg room. Lots more pics to come.
Veg room with two separate NFT tables. The left table is for mothers and uses 6" pipe while the table on the right will be a short (3-7 days) veg table for the ladies to go before they are moved to flower.
Shot of the table with a few ladies in them. All of these will be turned in to mothers. The table holds 160 and I would say there are bit more than 100 at the moment.
A little root porn. This is only 3 days out of the cloners... The growth with these NFT systems is outrageous.
Everything I have done is based on Heath's original designs and theory. I am sure he could squeeze 1gpw out of a thimble and band aid, but us mere mortals have work to do.
Im comin' for ya Heath. Here we go...
