BP gone Hydro

So a little about my background, Been growing in coco for 8-10 years hand water'd in a 8 x 8 tent.
Thought it was time I mixed it up a little and treated myself to an Alien RDWC 6 36lt pots.

I haven't made any grow threads for 8 years, Because it's something new might as well pop my Hydro cherry with you lot






I was wanting to grow 707 truthband I had 6 freebies sat in my bean tub for a while, I started them off in jiffy pellets, That was my 1st mistake lol as one popped and never grew any roots one was mutant and couldn't grow more than 3 leafs. So now I have a little mixture in my tent of one truthband (I have 2 more in my veg tent) 2 red russian's and 3 L.A amnesia's.

As you can see in my pics the 36liter pots may be a bit of an overkill but should be fine and I'm looking forward too seeing how they turn out. The pump that came with the kit was pants and started sounding like a bag of ball brearings getting thrown about in a dustbin after 2 weeks.... Lucky for me I bought a better a pump as a spare. oase pontec 2000lt pump came with a 3 year guarantee.

Water chiller is set up and ran it 2 weeks prior to use with no problems.

Welcome to my tread and hope you all enjoy the journey with me

Thanks DarkSide been researching as much as I can. I know different seeds are not ideal, But I have no mothers at the moment. In Jan I had to cut everything down and pack away. But I have a bunch of great seeds I know I will find a keeper out of every packet. To be fair the 707 truthband will be worth keeping as well


Best of luck with this run Big Phil,,s2

Thank you Sir, I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out and smoking some kick ass bud again. A little more down the line, I'd like to have a go at making some beans. About 2 years ago I grown out some Bodhi Lions Milk

The pictures are not the best. But I found the taste unique and the high heavy hitting, It reminded me of some of the older highs. I don't want to lose that so I'm saving the 8 seeds I have left and hope to make some yummy bean's with them.

My res I am having problems with keeping cool. I think I am going to make a tea and see if that keeps the water quality in good shape. If it doesn't I might just by pass the Res and not use it at all. I have moved it away from the water chiller as that kicks out some heat!

I will update with new pictures every week so everyone can see how it's coming along. Welcome and enjoy the show

I want to talk about what I am feeding. I am using GHE 3 part at the at a dose of 0.6ml a liter of each. my system holds 175 liter, I've put in 200 ml of Rhizotonic and 30ml of Silver roots Excelurator. original PH was 5.4 and after a day has risen to 5.6 and stayed the same since. My water is not R/O and quite hard so have hard water nutes.

For the tea I have put 10 liters of bottled water in a 15liter bucket. I don't trust the water that much as it has an ec of 0.4. So I bubbling that over night as we speak to rid it of any chlorine if it has any.. My tea will consist of

1-1.5 cups of worm casting's put into an old sock.
0.5 of a scoop of great white shark
2.5 ml of roots Excelurator
30ml of Rhizotonic
And 13 ml of Moloasses per 24 hour brew time

By the time the tea is ready, The system will be ready for a water change. I will also up the feed slightly to 0.8ml per liter.

Running 2 600w with an 8 inch extractor shifting 1000m/3 of air per hour have a 4inch intake and as you can see the fan that I have strapped up because there was no room to have it standing. The fan itself is really quite with no vibration. I have used 20mm washing machine rubber matts under each pot and everything that vibrates outside my grow area.


Yesterday morning I found loads of flies in my bathroom ceiling I smoked boomed the little fookers and have ordered a bottle of Tanlin to mix in with my feed just to be safe. I haven't seen any in my garden but it is best to be safe than sorry!

Here is a picture of a couple of the dead little pests!
