    Would be more of an nft system.

    If you going to grow a bunch of clones it would work fine for a vert sog

    But you would want to do short veg times.

    Ive grown pretty decent sized plants in them (low pressure aero/nft)

    As long as it doesnt have sprayers that will clog it should do fine.

    It might run a little warm too being in the pipes but that will be something youll have to tackle with any system.

    ace thanks for the help guys, im getting rid of my tent and turning the small area behind my workshop into a grow, with co2 gen etc, all the plumbing is done but i need to finish the rendering and get it sealed etc. I was thinking about running the pipes all around the room then using the floor as normal, turn the place into a jungle. it surely has to be the most efficient way of using your lighting as you could just hang them like pendulums with stuff growing all around.

    You can also train your plants vertically up walls instead of having another system on the wall .

    Its something im considering having vert around the walls and flat in the center as well :)

    i did look into that but you would waste a lot of time in veg no?

    If your trying to stay withing a "limit" then yes but you will be vegging anyways.

    If plant counts are of no concern then i guess yes less veg would be faster but it will equal out in the end.


    With more veg you usually get more yeild.

    With less veg its "faster" but you get a smaller harvest equal to the lack of veg time.

    If that makes sense

    yes, limit is not much of a problem as the limit is 0 here lol I love my dwc though, once you get dialed in, I have just come out of my first lockout. i have always done fine with gh trio and nothing else except a bit of silica. i decided to add a bit of cal-mag and it really screwed me over, plants went into lockout with cal toxicity with hard water and hard water nutes. flushed now and back to normal schedule and they have taken off again. Problems really do seem to occur when you over complicate things lol.
