    GSC is more of a Kush type strain and like a lot of CalMag. You could up your CalMag 20%. Watch for dead spots on the leaves. If you get them, you need more CalMag.

    There are hundreds of brands of nutes out there and they all work fine. I wouldn't get hung up on what it's called, just follow the instruction. I used General Hydroponics last time with great results. I know guys that grow 100% organic, they make their own tea from the left over leaves and stems. They win awards every year here in Oregon. I have all 23 of their strains in front of me right now. Out of all the strains the Headband 707 is the best. Not because of how it's grown but because it has the best genetics. I'll say it every time....It's all about the genetics.

    Just flipped my veg to flower but not after battle with the tangle roots. Ive done a thread search on the topic of the tangling and transferring and so far it's unclear.

    I went ahead and cut the "at the hips" but towards the end of the shift, they didn't look too happy and we're drooped over.

    How do you guys work with the tangled roots from veg to flower?

    Shroominnm Well-Known Member

    I move them all to flower together in my dwc type system.. once those roots grow together I feel like it does more harm than good to seperate them.
    Have you already explained your setup? I'll go back and look if so

    I'm using the two tier veg system along with the post pole setup for flower.

    I have this issue frequently also when I move from veg tub to the flower rails.

    The best way I have found to solve this problem is to lift the net pots up a few inches out of the veg tub every couple days.

    I have torn the roots apart quite a few times when moving them over and have never had any negative affects that I've noticed.

    I veg for longer than I should in the stacked double set up and roots grow together. I just cut the and have never had any issues although I try to stay on top of it so i cut them frequently since I so,etimes veg for two months, but try not to cut roots the week prior to flower transfer

    Oh wow! I just started GSC XTRM from Amsterdamn Seebank and got this and was driving myself nuts trying to find what the problem is. Just the tiniest spots on the bottom leaves but otherwise the plants are healthy and thriving. Glad I read this! Thanks!

    Hello guys! Thanks for the book and sharing all this great info Stinkbud. Also, thanks to all the others who have contributed. I have read this entire thread as well as superstoners and am hoping for some help.

    I seem to be having a problem with wilting plants in the aero/nft rails!

    Light - 630 sun systems lec, ph 5.8, ppm around 800 (botanicare), temps 70-76, RH 40-60. Lights at around 16-20" with no signs of damage. Timer ATM is 1min on/ 1min off, res = 63-66f.

    I have tried the timer 1.2/8, 1/4, 1/5 and have even raised the Rez end to try and slow the waterfall down. But, I can't seem to get the plants to stop drooping. I have 2 ezclone sprayers per plant spaced at around 3" from the middle of 3" net pots in a 5x5 rail and the hole spray looks great.

    The plants do great in the cloner and pop back up quickly praying to the T5, I just cant get them to thrive in the rails and the roots look great.

    This is my first grow and I'm having a ton of fun with this new hobby. I just need some help figuring out what I am doing wrong. I will try to post some picks in a post after this.

    Thanks Rovin

    This is impressive... So how much do you sell 1/2 lb. of your buds for?

    WeedFreak78 Well-Known Member

    I just wanted to stop and say thanks to everyone here. Been running 2 modified stinkbuds rail systems for about 1.5 yrs, pulling 1.5-2lbs out of a 4x4 area. Changing my setup due to state legalization and plant limits, so I think the rails will go to growing herbs ands lettuce, I'm thinking of stuffing them with dirt...:o...oh no I didn't!

    Again thanks stinkbud, and everyone else who made this thread what it is. Happy growing!:bigjoint:

    Thank you for your abilities and empathy. This profession is more of a public service than a crime. Excellent write up and advice for people considering if their work/time is worth it..IT IS

    After now running the system for awhile...
    would you consider using a pvc post cover that was 6x6 rather then 4x4 if available?

    So, I didn't read all 590 pages, and this may have been answered already, but I was wondering about running this as a drip instead of a mist, moving the pvc tubing toward the top of the post and dripping/ spraying a stream of nutes across the roots. The reason I'm asking is because my nute line is thicker than most, and the manufacturer recommends not trying to push it through misters.

    Currently I am handwatering DTW style in coco, but if I can automate the process of watering and feeding and not worrying about how dry/wet etc my medium is and all that I would like to.

    Any help would be appreciated.
