I have two plants I was planning to flower in my 4x4x80 tent with my new Bestva 1000 LED light (I’m loving this light. It’s a great price, and I’m thinking about upgrading it to the 2000 in next month). But I didn’t figure in that my using 7gal earth bags with well-draining soil would may it a wet mess in my 2nd room.
There just doesn’t seem to be a way to water them that doesn’t create flooding of the tent and eventually my floor. I don’t have the funds or desire to buy wet/dry vacs, and I still can find a tray that will hold the water until I figure a way to hose it out. I’m now thinking about putting my plants in the bathtub, setting up my led, and finishing up the flowering in there. Is this really a bad idea?
I know the concerns about ph, but what if I were to ph the water in the tub? I have enough solution to do it (I have access to a case of it). I’m thinking if I were to ph the water, fill up the tub 1/3rd of the way, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, then pour into my plants the “nuted” ph water (3oz nutes to 1 gal),
the plant roots would get bathed in plain water before being fed. I don’t know why, but I’m thinking as long as the water is ph’d, that’s not a bad thing? I mean, if I do this, wouldn’t it be removing any salts that may be at the bottom of the bag anyway (a bottom flush, of sorts), which would be great for the feeding?
I’m not sure why this would be a bad idea, so I came here to ask. Thanks in advance!
