    Hi there everyone! ;)

    Soo after learning Dwc for around 2 years, the time has come for me to get serious about a perpetual grow so ive come to ask advice about how to get started.

    Currently i grow auto's, but im doubting this to be the best option for me im just not sure...
    my setup is as follows

    4 site 20ltr rdwc running on a chiller 600hps 2x2x2 tent.

    So really im after suggestions on where to go from here.. i have more tents if needed but i think with a good blockout divider i in the 2x2x2 i could start veg/flowing photos but it would be a super tight fit!

    or do you guys think i should stick with Auto's im finishing them around 11-12 weeks currently but im never going to be happy unless im getting a pound per plant every time and getting that via autos..well yeah isnt garanteed.. let me know what you guys think i really appreciate any advice as im pretty much a Lone wolf thats self taught from scratch . thanks in advance guys :)

    why not 2 tents, stick with autos and start tent 1 first then start tent 2 about 5to6 weeks later?

    Thanks for commenting bro . That was my plan as it sits , as mentioned though i was thinking going to photos for a bigger yield and a more controlled grow.. so to be honest im a bit up in the air with it
    i feel like photos will have more to offer in the long haul . id also like the ability to veg longer if need be ;)

    i didn't like autos for that reason.

    try out feminized seeds. that's what i use. all should be girls so you dont' waste time growing males. and you can grow them as tall as you want til you go to 12/12

    Thanks bro, Im also finding that all the autos i grow still take 11-13 weeks to finish which has also added to it and the largest was still only 11.5oz and im averaging around 10oz PP.. witch to me seems small for the style and everything running smoothly , temps around 20c to balance out the metabolic rate vs DO saturation, 600w hps no algea/phythium etc (orca bennies) and so on..

    ive also been testing out some humic fulvic (GT blackjak) for a week which at first being organics and i run AN synthetics, i wasn't to sure about .. everything seems fine so far and i noticed some nice big feeders starting to evolve on the 4 im running but does junk up the res .
    fems might be the way to go ;) seed or clone?

    10oz per plant for four plants under a 600W HPS? That's a terrific grow if you're getting close to 2 grams per watt. Congrats

    Thanks for the kind words bro. Alot more with a 600 is possible (600 /28 =21oz @1gpw) though im not there yet but maybe some day, but i think il need photos for that.. cheers ;)

    Do you have any pics of the grow? That is pretty amazing numbers that your getting. What strain? I've got to get me some of those auto's for my summer grow. 40 ounces under a 600 in 13 weeks is truly something to behold.

    I think the best way to do it is get 3 tents. 2 will be flowering tents and 1 will be your veg/clone/mother tent. Offset your flower tents by 30 days and every 30 days you will have a decent harvest....ditch the autos if you want to be perpetual

    Come back when there flowering. Not to be rude but all I see is an tent with some crowded plants and not 40 ounces lol. I have a lot of experience to and just showing those plants and not the 40 ounces of budding plants just adds to the intrigue lol.

    If by "intrigue" you meant "respectfully call bullshit"
    been growing for over 25 yrs, and I've never even come close to 40z on a 600
    not even close.
    No way those lower plants are getting enough light from one 600 with that tall one blocking everything
