I'm back at it again! A few upgrades later, my setup is better than ever. I've been able to dial it in with for this grow (*crossing fingers*) by learning from my recent disaster of a grow op. (Organic LED DWC Grow). As great as this community is, I wanted to share my grow experience with everyone, so lets begin! . The Setup: Using three 5 gallons buckets. One is the reservoir (top), the other is the water level controller, and the last one holds the 5 gallon Airpot Waterfarm. This setup took a lot of customizing but it's straight forward. If anyone wants to replicate this, use a yellow Airpot instead of the green one. This will save you from the hassle of shrinking the circumference and adding feet so to keep it from sitting in the water. I took the Airpot one notch higher by putting a collar around the base and a 200 micron filter on the base. Hoping this filters the water and keeps all the Growstone dust and junk inside the pot. We'll see how that works out. And the pump in use is a JW Pet Fusion 700. As for the controller bucket, a PVC Mini Float Valve did the job. One trick I copied from another grow is to hold the float valve in place with a neo magnet and by using some sort of anchor, i.e. tupperware. This makes the water level adjustable and keeps the bucket watertight. Last but not least, the reservoir has an inline ball valve to make transporting it a breeze. Another tip is to give both the controller bucket and reservoir tiny airholes. . Nutes: Nothing special. Using the Foxfarm trio -- Big Bloom, Grow Big Hydro, Tiger Bloom, along with Busdoctor Microbe Brew. . Strain: Bagweed seed? (thanks to Americans for Safe Access). Not using feminized seeds is setting me back a bit. Currently growing my plant in rockwool alone, then once I can sex it, I'll move it into the hydro setup. During my last grow I was brewing earthworm castings and Espoma plant food to make nutes for my girl. For whatever reason, the brew wasn't giving my plant what it needed, as the middle picture indicates. I was forced to add the earthworm castings and Espoma directly on the Rockwool cube then feed it plain tap water. This was the magic procedure (don't rethink the circle moment...). It's been doing fine since. . Medium: 3x3 Rockwool cubes and Growstones GS1 . Lights: Starting off with one 8 watt warm white LED bulb and one 12 watt red, blue LED bulb for the seedling stage. Next I'll be moving to a 600 watt COB LED full spectrum grow light. I'm debating whether I should build it myself or buy one off ebay.... . Growroom: 3x3x5 ebay grow tent. Hope you enjoyed the read. There is more to come so stay tuned!
