either way looks sweet man good luck on your mythical journey to heathdom
I would say the top reflectors could be a bit larger. I just finished installing a new system with a MUCH larger top reflector. I will let you know how it goes. My main concern was having enough room for airflow/heat escape.

Anything you could tell me about that chunky cheese would be apprecited. I imagine it got to an unmanageable size or your pheno search would have been long over!
Air extraction right now is just carbon scrubber ducted out of the room. Temps are about 72 right now due to the cool weather. Water temps are roughly the same. I am, however, experimenting with higher water temps and hydro fungicide to see if I can get away with them.

As far as the chunk the only pheno I got dialed in was AMAZING. Pretty good yielder and it smelled like some straight up stanky ass cheese. Too bad I lost the pheno, but thats another story.

The dams are a BIG change from Heath's designs. We went through several different designs, but have finally settled on something that is approaching optimal.

is that a triple negative ? my mind = blown
They are about 5 feet or so across. Plants on the floor is something I have been toying with. Not sure how that would affect my ability to get in the system and play around. I will be experimenting with this soon I imagine...

When you say 4 days of veg, do you mean in the system or is that pre-trasnplant veg?
Vegged 4 days post cloner in a separate system much like the unit from my first post.

Couple more shots for today...


Installing the third system here...
Mother ship ready for takeoff


Mothers mothers and more mothers. This is the same room as the very first picture in this thread two months after the original picture was taken. There are probably about 80+ mothers in here. I threw a bunch out and will continue to do so until I find the beauties...

I feel I have to chime in here as well, in case HR happens to pop in. The man so should be knighted for all that he as shared. I don't think he posted the "how to" get your serious bloody G on, to stroke his own ego. Granted that he has an old school trim technique but, I am absolutely certian that his flooded tube design can produce 2+gpw.

Yea, to all of the people doubting Heath, have you ever ran these systems?

If not, then it seems crazy to doubt a man who posted lots of pics and has always been more than generous with his knowledge.

That's just my 2 cents though. You know you are doing something right if you have that many doubters. Respect.

It ain`t rocket science , but rather what Heath taught me over a decade ago.....Plant numbers dictate yields....period.....

He surrounds 600 watt bare bulbs with as many fully rooted cuts as it takes to create the perfect canopy by end of stretch , and his fast hydro setups provide the rest for growth and swellage till end of cycle....simple.....babyshit.. ..

2 gpw`s translates to 1200+ grams per 600 watt bulb , and it ain`t that hard once yas know the science behind the process it takes to create the footprint and canopy.....Hell....

I saw him run his first lil bare bulb setup as a breeding project to find pheno`s from seeds straight 12/12 in a 4 x 6 room with like 3 shelves all the way round the room except for small access door and like 87 plants once he added more rooted cuts to create the canopy , and with 2-600`s side by side he pulled a lil over 4 lbs the first run from nuthin but popped beans and rooted cuts turned into budsicles......and then....I couldn`t stand it any longer.....

I swapped out all my ebb and flow bucket rooms and built racks for coco dtw and killed it till shutdown , but there`s so much room for improvement and increased yields with vertical gardening it ain`t funny......

Lookin good Bro...and....

Sorry ta clog the thread BST....just finished my coffee and pre 98 Bubba wake and bake.....GF said breakfast`s ready.....

Good luck...DHF.........
