You are just a growing machine aren’t you


#83

All out of :heart:’s again…
Looks awesome!

I find great pleasure in growing a high grade cannabis which I give out to friends and family. I started out looking at just growing for myself after spending tons of money buying it for 45 yearsl. Once I started giving it out to friends and family I had to expand and expand again. What makes me feel good is when people say it really helps them out and you know they’re serious. I currently have about 15 two ounce bottles of Tinture to hand out and of course brownies and some cannabutter. So to answer your question, @Hogmaster Yes I’m a growing machine but not because I love it because I have to. lol


#85

Thanks @70sChick I really appreciate it.


#86

You are very welcome @ntmaremach


#87

Here’s a picture taken today of the girls. I’m just starting to see the roots coming through the bottom of the pots.





#88

man you and your ebb and flow system is kicking butt @ntmaremach
any particular brand name that you are using? pictures of your set-up,if you don’t mind sir!


#89

Awesome job!

@BIGE The system is Hydrofarm Grow Flow. I have two systems but with 12 pots total not 24. One for Veg and one for flowering. I absolutely love the setup and have the controller feeding five times a day for a half hour of flooding in veg and will reduce it to three or four times a day in flower.
Here’s the controller


The 55 gal. drum

Here’s what a setup with 12 pots looks like


#91

So couple questions.
Is it more of a flow and grow system where the solution routed to the plant does not flow to waste but gets consumed by the plant/bucket?

I use the autopot system which seems like the poor man’s version of this system. Autopots are gravity fed from a central res and have a valve that starts and stops the solution providing very short “dry” periods several times daily. I also have “air domes” in the bottom of the pots with 20L/minute pumped in when lights are on.

Great system and one I looked at before settling where I am now. @ntmaremach


#92

This plants look great. Short and dense so far! They like what they’re getting.


#93

It’s a flood and drain system. The main controller fills up and at the same time all the pots fill up to the same level. I have them flood for half an hour and then it gets pumped back into the drum. This system has a pump in the drum and one in the controller. I don’t have air in each pot. In this system I have air stones in the drum. What I’ve found out is once the plants are done veg. and are put into the flowering room I use fresh lower pots. Roots develop in the drain of the pots going into the hose and if I didn’t start flowering with fresh lower pots I might have a jam up with roots requiring me to take the hoses apart.

Here’s an update on the two Gold Leaf plants I’ve been harvesting. After letting them dry I ended up with about 30 ounces I put into jars. This is more than I thought I’d get as I was figuring about 20-24 ounces. I’ve already taken two ounces to make some Tinture and now I’ll be making a couple pounds of cannabutter. Here’s a picture of the Gold Leaf clone that still has another three weeks or so left.


#95

That’s awesome! I’ve got two gl that sprouted about a week ago…reading that made me smile :grinning: great looking plant looks like you’re going to do good with that one also :+1::+1:


#96

@WillyJ Thanks, this clone comes from good stock. A small bud from her Mother won the BOM contest for Aug. I think I might get a pound from her so I’ll have plenty of GL to go around. I’m really liking the Gold Leaf so far and so has everyone I’ve given it to.
Here’s a picture of the winning bud 35 days into flowering.

#97

Very nice! :+1:I’m excited to see what mine will do…I’ve been reading good things


#98

Today makes day 7 of veg. not counting the seedling week. Tomorrow I’ll be changing to late growth and will remain on it until they go into the flowering room. Here’s some pictures taken today.







#99

Very nice @ntmaremach You my friend, are “dialed in.” Those plants are the picture of health and vigor! Best of luck on this journey!!

Absolutely beautiful! :heart: Don’t change a thing :v::seedling::sunglasses:

I thought I’d throw up some pictures of the ebb and flow system for those who are interested.
Here’s the drum and controller. There are three 1/4 inch hoses for the three large air stones running all the time. There’s also a pump inside the drum which supplies the nutrients into the controller bucket which gravity feeds all the other pots. You can see I have the timer set for 1/2 hour five times a day. I see that when setting the timer yesterday I have one set at 15 mins. I’ll get that tomorrow morning.




There’s a pump inside the controller bucket to pump the nutrients back into the drum after the 1/2 hour.

This is how the nutrients feed and drain into the pots. This is where you develop a problem with roots forming down into the elbow restricting the flow.

Here’s my Gold Leaf clone which is looking great.
