my wife said the vapor smelled like a Redwood tree…


#1130

We ain’t got any of those around here. My sense of smell is poor, therefore I can’t tell as much about taste. I’m sure I’m missing some undertones, never the less, I like it. Not cured yet, but I had to bring some home cause I was tired of smoking trim from last harvest.


#1131

Is your setup a partial DWC with fluid always at the bottom of your grow bucket? Trying to decide if it is best to do that, or if it would be better to place the drain in the grow bucket as low as possible. My thinking is that it would be less likely to encounter plythium & other issues by doing that. Pros/cons of either?


#1132

I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking, but I’m in 20gallon containers and I keep my water level about 1 1/2 inches below bottom of the net pot


#1133

Do you have your roots suspended in fluid at all times, or do you drain to empty & refill the grow bucket on a timer?

I am trying to determine whether or not the roots have to be suspended in fluid at all times like a deep water culture setup. Is it as effective to drain the grow buckets with gravity, faster than they fill up, so that there is never fluid actually standing in the grow bucket? I intend on 24/7 recirculation of fluids, so they roots will always be wet.


#1134

That is exactly what I do. I think it’s called a RDWC (recirculating deep water culture). I have about a 1 1/2" gap between my net pot and the water level. I will start dropping the level a little each week in flower, as per @peachfuzz, to allow for some air roots to grow. Roots, once they reach the water, are from then on UNDER water, except for the gap at the top


#1135

You will definitely not have an empty system EVER. Roots naturally prune themselves when exposed to air, but in 100% humidity they are able to survive. Water will lessen in the system as the plant grows and starts to drink more while roots start to take up more space at the same time. My big girl from my last grow drank about a gallon a day when she was in flower, so I was constantly having to fill her up. Also checking ppms to see if there are enough nutes left in the water to accommodate the plant’s feeding needs.

Train Wreck quality update, the longer cure time - chopped 10/17/18- has given her a stronger punch, very pleased with it, plus great bud texture.


#1137

Nice I’m getting the same deal purple haze is getting staaank


#1138

@ACK go to the top and start. This is one I just finished, I’ll tag you in my new one


#1139

what strain is this my Missus wants to know ? :face_with_monocle:


#1140

ILGM train wreck


#1141

Of rdwc is basically a dwc with a pump to recerc the water the system you are talking about is a ebb&flow system or a full and dump


#1142

Yes sir. I have a RDWC system. I’m not sure what you are referring to about the ebb and flow. If you could jog my memory, perhaps
