    Anything with Sativa in it will take awhile to finish but it's worth it bro. Our Durban Poison takes a solid 12 weeks. Some of our Indicas finish in just over 7 weeks! Obama Kush is the fastest finisher and it will knock your socks off!

    I'd go with one big 4x8 tent bro. That way you'll multiply the light quite a bit. Even though the plants will get most of their light from the closest light they will still benefit from the other two lights. The center plants will grow way faster too.

    Your drywall should be fine if you run a carbon filter. It's a good idea anyway just so you don't stink up the whole house. If you're really concerned about the drywall and flooring just cover everything in Panda Film sealed with tape.

    To keep things simple I'd run soil for the first few batches. Then when the timing's right I'd move to Coco. I was in the hydro shop the other day, the entire back room was filled with different types/brands of coco fiber.

    I wouldn't even consider aeroponics unless you can afford a water chiller. Better off with coco...

    Thanks for your response.

    I hadn't thought of a 4x8, great idea. I gather you feel the extra light is worth the risk of contaminating the whole grow, if something goes wrong. It would probably get into the other tents anyways.

    soil !?! 507 pages off aeroponics and NOW(!) you change to coco. your killing me man. lol

    I just did a 4 seperate bucket DWC side by side with 4 soil airpots 5gal. the hydro was way bigger, taller, bushier, but the buds were way more dense on the soil.

    i could always start with soil and introduce an aeroponics system into the set up, after all the reading i really have my heart set on trying your rail system. I have all the gear except the fence rails. REALLY hard to find here cheap.

    never had temperature problems in the DWC. i only plan on growing in the winter. long winters here. It's -37 here now, keeping water cool is not a problem. low humidity at 15% is the hassle.

    spread the love

    I cannot believe this thread is still going. It brings a smile to my face. I read through this thing like it was gospel. It was the reason why I had a successful grow; using your timeline and a similar nutrient schedule (same feed). I just chose medium based; and rockwool solved the issue of air space for roots that you spoke of. I'm glad your kicking, and odd that we both ended up soil growers years later. And congrats on the Hightimes feature

    Yea it's hard to believe this thread is still around! I'm glad you're able to find a successful method that works for you. The ONLY thing that matters to me is that people grow their own weed. Soil, hydro, coco, DWC, DTW, aero... it's all good to me!

    Our indicas? You hooked up with a seed bank now?
    I almost have my room planned, on a hardware quest today and maybe to rundown a couple of local seed/clone sources. I should get paid on Wed and will have enough money to buy one LED light and Filter/fan set up for the grow. If I can find some Auto's I may be smoking my own dope by April! Hooray!

    In all honesty bro the only thing that really matters is genetics. Anyone can buy a bag of Happy Frog soil, use any off-the-shelf nutes and end up with good weed (if you have the right strains). All the Dope Cup winners were 100% organic soil farmers. Indoor or light-dep is the best quality. Light-dep consistently tests higher than any other type of growing method and it's the most efficient too.

    It won't be long until you'll be able to buy some of our strains. We have 3-4 strains that consistently test out over 30% THC. We also have a bunch of award-winning strains including an amazing high-CBD strain. I have a couple of male Durban Poison and I'm hoping on ending up with a few Thai and Afghan males too. I'll be mixing the land-race males with our best genetics. Our Durban Poison female is legendary so I know it's going to make a great cross!

    I'm hoping that you'll let us know when and where to get some of the Durban Poison or crosses. I've been wantingto try that and found today a local Dispensery that has Durban Poison ready rolls for $6 each. Thought I'd treat myself on payday!

    Anyone have an answer for what ppm scale to use? 500 or 700. Or even just ec?

    Don't want to Jack the thread but been playing with PureBlend Pro in hydro for a while now and just can't get away from this tip curl issue. Was hoping @StinkBud may have some input as he clearly is on his game and has worked that nutrient line :hump:

    700 scale measures KCI or potassium chloride, 500 scale measures NaCl or sodium choloride. USA is usually 500, UK is 700.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it though. Just watch your plants and they'll tell you what they like. Start at 500 ppm. Some strains are hungry and will want more right away. Some strains burn just looking at them. I tend to start slow (400) and bring it up over a few weeks. Watch the leaves. If they start looking real dark (almost black) then back off a little. You have to take into account that some strains are naturally darker than others. After a few batches you'll get to know what works best.

    Another thing to consider is how much light and CO2 you have available. If you pump up the lights and add CO2 you can double your PPM.

    It's not something I'd be too concerned about bro. Overall the plants look pretty healthy. Your nutes might be a little hot for this strain. You might try reducing the PPM a little (but not by much). If your buds are coming out nice then don't change a thing. You're more likely to make it worse than better.

    Good luck bro!

    Thanks for the reply brother, are there any sure fire Pure Blend Pro recipes off the top of your head for water culture hydro?

    Anyone here have any experience with God’s Green Crack?
    I was give them 7days after being cut in Rockwool. Removed most of the Rockwool.
    I had my clones in the cloner for 10 days and most plants had the roots reaching into the water.
    So moved them to the veg unit, gave them their first food and holy crap they grow fast. They are 6” to 8” for the tallest ones. Almost time to cut clones and go into rails. They are at 19 days since they were cut
    Going to try 3 7’ rails. My resiviors are outside the tent to help with heat. I can have a chiller hooked up if needed.
    Fingers crossed things keep going well. Wife got bad news again, she doesn’t deserve this.

    @stink, from light dep article,

    "" During winter, for example, Gibson takes advantage of the cold air outside by pulling it indoors during the final days of flowering. This causes the flowers to fill up with so much sugar that the rock-hard nugs ooze a clear syrup. “I felt like I’d cracked the code,” Gibson says with a smile"""

    20171123_181457.jpg It has been a while. Just wanted to give Stink another shout out and heartfelt thank you. Been running the perpetual rails for many years now, I I still have a Lemon OG strain from my very first rail Clone, veg, rail! Can't beat it it I would have never been able to keep a mother around all these years but with this method I am still rocking the same Lemon OG for many years. Don't get me wrong variety is the spice of life but whenever I harvest a Lemon it brings a smile to me face. Been trimming Blueberry, Snow Cap and Morning Glory this week :D Life is GOOD with fresh smoke every month!
