    Hey I built one like Stinks OG design and Using Botanicare nutes with the 18 gal. res and when I pull my pots up to check the roots they have a lot of muddy looking build up on the roots. it rinses off.I just wondered if that was normal for those nutes?

    I have not noticed any "muddy" buildup. The liquid karma does start to stain the roots a brownish color though.

    No it just like organic solids building up, just on the bundles of roots...... Ill snap a pic later . Its just the solids basically getting trapped in the crevises of the root bundle. You can rinse it and the roots look fine. Just wondered if thats normal for the Botanicare nutrients

    Yea, Liquid Karma causes the roots to turn brown and it leaves a coffee-stain like residue. If the roots look grey and slimy then you have root rot. Brown is fine...

    I am currently an all soil guy but this looks very cool and simple to make and use... I know you use CO2 and you had stated that it keeps the roots small... I i am not using CO2, and I am wondering if you think the roots would get to large inside the fencing posts? thank you very much this design is great and very much the KISS method!

    If you're currently having success with soil then don't switch yet. I'm seeing guys pull 2lbs per 1K light around here using soil. The larger the pots, the bigger the plants.

    Of course I've said this a million times but it all comes down to genetics. If you're growing indoors, under big HPS lights, then your biggest improvement will come through genetics. Right now I have over 30 different strains in front of me. Out of all the strains the Headband (707 cut) is the best. Of course the reason it's the best is because it tastes and smells exactly like the OG Kush (SFV cut)! haha Man I love my Kush!!!

    I did want to give you guys a quick heads up on the Cookies project. The Cookie tent is fucking crazy!

    Holy shit, Trainwreck Cookies! Rock hard nugs covered in resin.

    Even the fucking fan leaves on the Blackberry Cookies are covered in crystals.

    The Orange Cookies are greasier than an old Chinese restaurant!

    The Pineapple Cookies reminds me of strolling down the beach in Hawaii... with a bag of rotting fruit.

    Lick your little finger and stick it in a bowl of sugar, now hold it up....that's what the buds on my Mystery Cookies look like. One long, oily calyx! All it needs is a porch and a banjo...

    The Blue Dream Cookies are spicy with a sweet pepper smell.

    Grape Cookies smell like a jar of candy soaked in fuel.

    Bubba Cookies...there are reasons why it's against the law to marry your cousin.

    Headband Cookies might be a hero but it's too early to tell.

    Stay tuned for photos soon...

    This is Orange Cookies #1. It's kind of a freak of nature. The calyxes are the size of my little finger but it's not a big producer. Smells like oranges soaked in fuel.
