  1. I've been building out a new grow setup this summer using high pressure aero / DWC hybrid under COB LED lighting. All flowering will be done using portable SCROG modules that can be disconnected in seconds and wheeled around like carts. Central res is auto topped up with RO water via float valve. Currently flowering around 15 different strains. Running the COBs at 50W each, 100W total per cart module. Currently 4 weeks into flowering and just discovered a massive infestation of Russet Mites - I was unaware of this new plague until a few days ago when I purchased a low power microscope. I'll be rotating late-flower-safe control methods to help this harvest to completion. For Veg I've completely defoliated all plants and will be hammering the remaining sticks with various systemics until they're completely wiped out before putting anything else into flower. Have also been battling Thrips and Powdery Mildew but those are both very easy to deal with compared to the Russet Mites. Using House and Garden Aqua Flakes and currently pushing 1100-1300ppm. Edit: Thanks to Le rat for the help with getting photos to display.
  2. Hello, I'm the "Aquaponic Dumme". I grow using the Aeroponic-Aquaponic method. Recently I've been developing an aero-aqua-soil method, and will update as it becomes more stable. There's a picture of my garden.
  3. Yo yo yo yo yo yo. Been forever and a day, and some. Shit so much has happened, excuse me if i start rambling, I'm hella sick, can't smoke the herb (cause my lungs feel like shit, been sick for almost a week now), and high on nyquil (hopefully I won't pass out at the keyboard). My last grow journal ended with spidermites, I remember when I found out I was up all night, spending close to 20 hours straight making home remedys, cloth vacuuming....jesus what a fucking mess. On the bright side I finally got rid of them and got like an oz of smokable herb and some medibles. The andromonia was very....stony, the green crack was good but I don't remember much of what it was like lol, Goodbye smoke report. The spidermites were just the start tho. AFter that I flipped 8 beautiful flowers, including the closest thing to an "elite" clone I've ever got (a very special sugar punch). But I fucked up, got a leak and lost everything the week before flushing...........then when i went to flip the next 8 I realized I had root aphids. Culled just about everything except for a few young clones I treated. cleaned the shit out of everything, set up some anti bug shit on the perimeter of the house, and got super religious with cleaniness. after the disaster tho I found myself finding less time in the grow room and giving them less attention. Next flip I got a harvest, but it wasn't as big as it could have been I ended up with a chocolate cheese and sugar punch. got like 1.5oz from the Choco cheese and like half a zip from the sugar punch. The sugar punch came out better but I think thats partly cause I ran nutes too high for teh CC to be happy. But fuck it, everything else in life started going good, I finished my yoga teacher training, started teaching, got a badass girlfriend, was doing super good in school, started spending more and more time making beats and then.....it all collapsed. I fucked up one morning and had the worst break up ever, got super depressed, stopped teaching, failed 3 classes in a row, and got fired at one of my jobs for being a depressed mess. Things are a little better now but the bad experience still haunts me all the fucking time, I actually quit smoking completely when I was with her, now I smoke more than fucking ever, which isnt that bad of a thing (better than the first week where I just drank myself stupid, got hella sick, then did a bunch of drugs). I'm really trying to reconnect to my grow though and share it in hopes of making things better, or at least keeping my mind of all the depresing shit that happened lately. RIght now I'm sttruggling, I make just 800 a month with my new job, and 575 goes to rent and utilities. I also have a mad weed habit so I NEED this to be successful to survive right now. Back to the plant, they have so much to teach and offer. Everytime I go in the room I immediately gain a sense of serenity and calmness, I love my ladies, they are so understanding, non judgemental, forgiving, and beautiful. I've been spending alot more time there lately, maybe an escape from all my crazy thoughts, maybe to make them thrive to the best they can be, probably a bit of both. But fuck it, without further ado lets see some pics. Chocolate cheese (thx E$co) right before flush Choco Cheese Early flower Sugar Punch (straight fire, wish I trained better for bigger yield though) This is the closest shit I've ever seen to an elite clone, the pic doesnt do this justice, the crystal coverage was fucking insane, I see more crystals on the fucking fan leaves than I see most buds, straight ridic. Unfortuantely root aphids got the best of the clones I was saving (yeah I had to let the go /cry) Chocolate cheese after harvest, My tastes are for shit but I can definitely taste the chocolate on the exhale, just the way you always wished those "choclate kush" blunt wraps would taste like (I think they were made by kingpin). Really love the high, slight in the body, but energizes the mind, made me feel real calm but also focused. When I mixed in the sugar punch in a blunt tho halfway though and I'd fine myself stilll there 5-10min later just thinking bout shit. Chocho cheese in late flower annd thats it for now. Stay tuned hopefully I'll find some time tomorrow to post pics of what I just harvested and what I got going on now (7 heallthy plants and 1 hole in my set up that seems to be a bottomless trap (i'm guessing one of the sprayers got clogged) cause I just lost 2 plants in there, one an irreplaceable gas mask (my own stupidity for forgetting to clone it before flipping it )

  6. Measurements were approximate, because spray bar pieces were trimmed, so that the center of the spray bar is 9" from the bottom of the tote. The top of the micro sprinklers is 10 3/4" from the bottom of the tote, while the bottom of the lid sits approximately 14" above the bottom of the tote.
  7. Hello all im an outdoor grower for those of you that dont know me been collecting my gear to build one off my long wanted project..... so im building an organic automatic hydroponics system from scratch'. x-stream 120 propagotor so i have bought so many things and still need to buy more but thought it is time to start sharing this new tech technology with ph controller with co2 to lower ozone to rise it i have taken 4 of the best hydro systems (Theories) in the world and doneall of them in one its a dual tank system 130 liter tank devided in 2 one is under the main grow tank 120 plant system in 125cm by 60cm can not finish 120 plants about 60 full grown with diffirent tables to choose the size of the net pots but you can clone 120 plants really rapid second tank the x-stream 120 will sit on this water tank ph controller and opr PH- and pH + ozone so all this shit will be implimated in the down tank ,but the tanks are circulating with a natural flow trew the sprayers so im creating a flood and drain when overfloded in the mist system will aways have about 40 liter in it and then it will overflow back to the under tank so imagine 3 lines with 3 diffirent misters and sprinclers connected to the upper reservouar with a 3000/lh pump this is to spray the roots in the upper tank i dont know if you guys follow but i will snapp ictures and draw some charts or find pics if something is unclear blessed love all
  8. My last grow was as close to a failure as a successful grow can be. I didn't even bother to measure the yield. The taste of the buds is nice, but the high was far from satisfying, which can be expected when you are forced to cut a sativa leaning hybrid 2-3 weeks early. Could have been worse though. Fortunately, I made some much needed changes, and I think I'm on the right path this time. Sowed 3 Auto Gambians on 3/12. We all know that the Auto Gambians come from one man only, so I don't even think it needs to be mentioned! Started in Rockwool, the infamous 'white hook' showed up at the surface of the rockwool on the 5th, at which point i put them into the 6" net pots. I think they're 6", never bothered to measure them. They were placed in the setup which has space for 3 net pots in a top feed DWC method in a 40L Rubbermaid tub. To the water I added Canna Rhizotonic at ⅛ of the suggested concentration. Set the lights on 20/4. I went out of town and came back in a few days and they were looking like any other seedling. nice and happy. Here they are on the 13th: And on the 15th: Fast forward to 20/12/14 No change in the reservoir at all. Roots are looking nice and white. There is one bigger than the other two; this is purely because the water beneath its roots is receiving an unevenly large share of oxygen. This should all be sorted out when my new air pump arrives and when i move these three to my small trial top feed RDWC setup: This little "elbow" elevation pictured below is to maintain a minimum water level in the buckets: Will test run it in the daytime hours today for a few hours to make sure there are no leaks and it's all working well and then 'transplant' these autogambians into their respective buckets. But wait, there's more! will be setting up an aeroponic grow in a 12 gallon tub with 5 sites in 3" net pots to see how it works out. This will also leave the initial tub (which the auto gambians are currently residing in) empty for more work/experiments. I am also in the process of building my own LEDs and seeing which works best - 3w diodes or 10w ones. I am going to be using a combination of cool white/warm white. I think I will lean towards the 3w because they generate less heat. and we are done...for now. more later amigos Now for a joint of the best charas in the world.... Boom El Chupa

  10. Hi opengrow. Last night i germ all the strains named in the topic title with the exception of the holy princess cross, which was popped a week ago. The hp cross is destined for an outdoor forest session, with the others being vegged in soil, then flowered in three aeroponic systems. List of seeds: Chuckles bride#9 Sour amnesia #5 Amnesia haze x g13 # 2 Holy princess x (amnesia haze x g13) #11 Kf fem #3 Nutes for aero will be atami with advanced nutrients: Awa leaves A/B Awa max A/B Atami pk 13/14 Monster bloom Bloombastic Rootfast Big bud Atazyme Pics of babies later on Ps i will make sure i do proper updates this time round
  11. Here are some pictures of my new grow. They just got planted 2 days ago. Im lettin them grow for a few few days so they can come out of shock. Ill be flippin the lights to 12-12 in a day or two. Ill have more photos as she progresses. Peace
  12. greets all i have noticed a lack of aero reports so have decided to share my experience. i will try to update regularly to show the pros and cons of the experience as ive found it quite high maintanence but also very rewarding. Heres week 3 flower with 2 week veg cannalope haze rootporn stained by nutes blueberry indica phenotype which i am planning to inbreed to chech for reccesive homozygous traits. KF F3 pink pheno clone smells like diesol grapefruit petrol and heres set 2 with the uk cheese babies
  13. greets all i have noticed a lack of aero reports so have decided to share my experience. I am currently running: setup 1: KF F3, UK cheese clone, bbi and cnnalope haze (week3) setup2: uk cheese (veg) set3: uk cheese, kf f3 (veg) i will try to update regularly to show the pros and cons of the experience as ive found it quite high maintanence but also very rewarding. Heres week 3 flower with 2 week veg cannalope haze
