  1. Hamme Hydro

    Hamme Hydro's Phototopic

    In this topic i will post pictures and excerpts of my grows. It will all be hydro, the medium of choice is rock-wool and watering goes by ebb and flow. . Sensi's Super Skunk. At this moment i am growing 36 Super Skunk granddaughters of the best performing grandmothers from my last grow. They are in the first week of flowering as we speak. A few days earlier.... Tonight... And a few Amnesia Haze cuttings that went immediately on 12/12. Esko style. And tonight i planted another 18 Super Skunk cuttings that were a bit late with rooting. This makes a total of 34 Super Skunk and 18 Amnesia Haze plants under three times 600 watts. ...To be continued. Peace, Hamme.

    Mother plants ("mums") in hydro

    Hi, i think about move my mother plants to hydro. ( please skip those comments : backup in soil ) last time a took some cuttings from my aeroponic system (General hydroponic´s Rainforest + 3 part fertilizer), but i had problem because those cuttings were hollow (hole in stem). Its a big big problem for many reasons. you can imagine. i have some reasons in my mind, a ) too fast grow (plants were like 3 weeks old from seed, 40 cm so . like 3-4rd floor) b ) missing some nutrients in hydro which caused this problem.?!? c ) maybe plant not from seed but from cutting can help? so now i am scared to put genetic in dwc or aero. any experiences or some ideas ? Thanks

    Growpito!

    So I heard it from a reliable source (The owner!) that you can now purchase this amazing grow medium through amazon Anyone out there order any yet? If so, I'd love to hear what your experience was like I've been promising you guys a documented grow using this stuff for a while now. Well, it looks like the end of August is go time...a dedicated room is being built out just for Growpito and hopefully we'll even get the time lapse equipment set up. MAD props to the Growpito crew for their passion and diligence!
  5. It has to start somewhere.... Before I dive into my antics underway, here are a few bud shots from my last grow. Personally I like seeing bud shots when I open OG MzDrzz Took another run with this clone great structure on the plant and phenomenal flowers.some of the densest foxtails I have encountered. From Sinister Seeds Cut at 70/71 days Dried and pre cure….. KA Kush (she had PM come back again, she is on her last run now..) Also Sinister Also ran me some Dynasty Seeds Caramel Candy Kush: Clipped around 70-74 days. look @ the frost on the undercarriage here…. And also had a nice run of some E$cob@r Chocolate Rain, still loving on this plant, she gets some hard foxtails too. Had some changes in real life, I moved into a 95% work from home role when my company closed our local office. This afforded me the opportunity of grabbing some office supplies and as part of those activities secured a couple more cabinets. As such, about a month ago I converted one, so now I have thing 1 and thing 2, Needless to say should be extra productive as I have increased my space. I am going to stagger them and hopefully get to the point of harvest every 4-6 weeks. So here are some basics for the run, I will have two setups: Thing 1 - the original cab. Same setup as usual, 400 W digital ballast in a vented hood, hydro system, 12 spots. I am running a new nute regimen this round from mbferts. They have their own powdered food and since they have been great on other merch, figured I would give this a spin, especially since my local hydro guy decided to flip the script and drop my jungle juice, so check in on this journal if you have looked into their nutes, I’ll be using them and will share and report results. I also implemented a Solistek MH 6K, for veg in Thing 1, plants are responding well, and definitely seeing some nice growth. This cab has been in Veg now for just about 3 weeks. Thing 1 Lineup: (4) Chucky Bride (3) Sugar Punch (2) MzDrzz (Ms U x Drizz) (1) Chocolate Rain (1) KO Kushx(CJxGM) (1) Lemon thai Thing 1 Thing 2 - new cab, been in bloom for about 3.5 weeks, Running a 400W Magnetic ballast bare bulb setup, hortilux, inspired by Indi, I have to give this method a try. Also changed things up and I am running a organic soil mix, based mainly around the Rev’s formula, but I don’t have feather meal and few other ingredients (oyster shells, alfalfa husks and a couple other). I’ll post a list of whats in here in a bit, once I pull that up. I am excited about the christening run for this voyager, she is getting some of my older Mom’s and some other plants I had that just needed to get going. Some of the Mom’s had PM a cycle ago, and PM came back to visibly show itself around week 4 in the last flower run, I am done with the struggle and sending them for final bloom. Thing 2 is planned to be about 4 weeks ahead of thing 1 in general, this should afford me with more turns. Her current lineup: (3) KA Kush (2) KO Kush (4) Caramel Candy Kush (1) Chuck Bride (1) MzDrzz (Ms Uni x Drizz) (3) Raining Caramel Kush ((CRxKOK)xCCK) (1) (CRxKO Kush)x Blue Chem (2) DeathStar x (Huck/Silverfield/Choco Rain?) ((2) diff pheno) Overall in here things are looking great. Soil seems to be holding its own and allowing me with some more flexibility, as soil affords me some freedom to move things around that I just don’t get with Hydro. Thing 2 KA Kush MzDrzz Overview of box Week 2: Week 3: Death Star x Huck Kush (these were test clones for determining sex, I have two females!! KO Kush Brain Rain x Blue Chem (Personal Cross I made (Brain Rain (Chocolate Rain x KO Kush)), never ran before, she’s a lady!) Caramel Candy Kush I will try to post again soon to catch you up on where this is at soon, I am a week behind on pics. thanks for looking and feel free to comment and what not, it's that dialog that helps keep these threads moving. enjoy

    advice setting up flood and drain table

    hey guys... i'm new on the forum and i've been thinking about this hydro method.. i'm willing to change my system and go flood and drain with mapito... maybe you guys with expertise can help me finding the best way to go... my setup is 100x100x200cm tent with 600w lamp on a hooded reflector... i have already built the table that i'm gonna run water.. it's 90x90x15cm wood table covered with plastic... my doubt is if i should place res under table or if i could have the res out of the tent...... can i have the res out of tent? how could i drain the water out of table? the reason i ask this is cause i found a nice 50L res that has 22cm in height... has the lowest height i found... table would be above that i say maybe 25cm to 30cm.. with the hooded fan at it highest position i would have maybe 30cm loss also... so into total i would loose about 60cm height only in that plus the fact that plants can't be right under the reflector, the need space.... also some other factors that has influence and i'm not sure where to go are pot sizes and plant numbers... fewer and bigger plants or more number and smaller plants? so which direction you guys think i should go considering the space i have? one love, santa!
  8. Howdy, Started a new round of JB x BK #2. Normaly I grow sannie´s organic way but this time i´m going to do a hydro/ mapito grow ebb and flow style. Kinda Eskobar´s way of growing.

SJ DR90 2,5 rev Phresh filter 500m3 Box Fan 550 m3 Variac fan controller Gavita IR 400 watt bulp Gavita Digistar 400 Davin switchbox Self made Ebb and flow table AGRA WOOL RFX-1 Hy-Pro A&B Dutch pro PH- Milwakee PH and EC meters Today I watered the RFX-Pito with 5,5 PH and 1,5 EC and put in 6 lady´s. Used 2 crates and 2 pots, the crates i planted 2 lady´s each and in the pots 1 lady put in. Vegged lady´s in meshpots and soil Lady´s in the RFX / Pito Let´s see what happens... Gr, Worm

    Hydro Nutes & Boosts-which ones work

    For many years now I've been growing in hydro and have used many nutes and boosters over the period, so I thought I would put a little list together, of what I have found works, others can then add their own good bad experiences, so at least we can separate gold from snake oil. For base nutes, there is a list of five that stand out: Advanced 3 part ,maybe not popular, but work well and contain fulvic for extra chelation. Hesi coco -great one part coco nute H&G -good (but not in DWC) Dutch Pro-surprisingly good. Canna-never used but seen excellent results. Boosters & Additives: Dutch Pro explode, works very well, my favourite. Buddha's Tree 9/18 & meta-boost collection, work quite well but you also have to use their meta boost to get best out of it. Plant Magic-platinum, only used for last grow, but seems to work well. Advanced Nutes-B5, works really surprisingly well, not even a boost, but works. Buddha's Tree Solar green power, silicon, pure sio2, not derived from potassium silicate, imo, best silicon on market. These products in my opinion, do increase yield. Could probably add much more, but it's only an overview.

    intro from the tropics

    Hi I'm writing from India . I just started growing . my first real grow. I don't want to boast but I think I might have ideal conditions to grow the best bud but I need help because in India we do not have any real growing scene.I want to know what strain from sannie will be best for me. If any one wants to help I'll give you the specifics. I already have some nl auto from sensi and amnesia haze and sweet seeds auto seedlings just popped. I plan on growing few plants hydro in coco for weight and few in organic soil for taste.I don't have too many organic supplies so I need help.

    Hydro in the Tropics

    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

    Hydro Systems: Which is your fav and why?

    Hello all! Finishing up grow room and my husband and I are still looking into the many diff types of hydro feeding systems. We need something economical ofcourse but not so much that it will take up more of our personal time. Having kids and our lil green babies as we like to call them leave us with very little personal time lol....(like all the hand feeding with droppers going on right now) and that is a PROBLEM Once we are up and running in our room we are looking at having anywhere from 50-80 babies all in rockwool cubes in trays on our 2 tables. We have a seperate room for vegging, for our moms, flowering and a small space for drying so we want a system that is not going to require alot of space. I know there are so many diff. variations and what not but I would appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your input!

    C99 (from clone)

    Dis is a clone from my C99 (femaleseeds). the mother hermied on me.she became mammy and daddy. so cut her at 6 wks flower. The smoke was lovely. But cant wait 4 dis 1.

Anyway smokin a nice joint of original cheese. so 4give the ramble. shes in a 20 ltr dwc system these 1s ave no home at t mo. but they seem 2 b goin grand. Dis 1 is in flower (1st wk). She was under a flur lite 4. well 2 lng. Put she is a monster of a plant.(just like her mum) had 2 do sum bending w her. (shed take over the hole closet) 4 t 1st wk of flower I decided 2 stay w the veg. food.(jungle juice) Next wk shes goin on sensi bloom and big bud powder. I am also using co2 tabs as well. Cheers JIMBO
  23. Unknown reason. pH: 5.8 ppm: 600-700 lights: 2x 600w HPS in cooltube, 4x 120W LED temp: 26-30C ebb & flood, rockwool. Plants have been growing for two weeks. Doesn't look it, does it? They seem to be drying and dying for no reason. Does anyone know what could I do? It seems that in less that two weeks these will be COMPLETELY dead. The cuts in the back are ok'ish but all of the Killing Fields in the front left and Kolossus on the front right are REALLY BAD. I have already had one KF die on me, and two Kolossus. Start: http://i.imgur.com/WrGfDWk.jpg One week veg: http://i.imgur.com/z0LwW7o.jpg Two weeks veg: http://i.imgur.com/nHVUg3h.jpg Today, about two and half weeks: http://i.imgur.com/MJiiLKp.jpg As you can see.... I am losing hope..... PLEASE HELP PS: many times i have started a project with exactly the same ppm's, ph's and nutrients etc. and everytime for 10 years its been working great. but now, a mystery... MYSTERY problem. WTF

    Emilys Garden - recirculating

    I bought one of these a few years ago when I was playing around with growing in a converted freezer. while it worked very well, the one thing that was a probem was checking ph and ppm/ec. I added a res underneath with ebb and flow fittings, then did a test run (for fun) Emlys GARDEN back view freezer pi from a few years back and now for the upgrade air stones anf ebb and flow fittings res cover with holes cut to allow fittings 18 gal tub from office depot close up bottom drain and I added an overflow (black hose..just in case) test res..air sone and pump ready to grow before test was finished.. I really hate to chunk plants out but they were left to grow with little attention to shape etc so a little hydo can grow six plants in a small space roots

    flushing and PH

    When growing in rockwool do you need to adjust the PH of plain water when flushing?
