Hello all, long time no post. Has anyone used pahydroponics fallponic system? Im new to getting in hydro and curious about the results of the system.
I did look at that system you can just order and build, I’ve seen a few people around here use it successfully. I don’t remember who or I would tag them.
I’m sure that guy knows way more about growing than I do, and he may have specific reasons for a few things why they are done that way.
I just built a custom rdwc system though, I like the idea of personalizing it and building it to the space you have to use,
So if you want to make building an rdwc system easy then it’s a good kit, if you want anything different I would just build your own.
I prefer all water going to the furthest bucket and flowering back through each one in series. With each bucket having it’s own air stone I see no reason to create a waterfall I have to listen to either
Thank you for the input gonna pull the trigger on it .
PA hydro is super legit!, gary is one of the greatest most down to earth nicest genuine hydro suppliers out there . youd be good goin with anything he suggests …at one point his higher ups were tellin him to stop giving away a lot of their trade secrets and gary straight up said i dont care im here to share what i know not harbor it…solid dude check him out on YT youll see what i mean…and it may seem like his prices are high but they really arent the markup is very minor if you try to source the parts individually you might save 3 dollars
I started with a 4 plant fallponic system. I didn’t plumb it the way Gary does - I don’t like to drain one plant into another, so I plumbed the return with 3” pvc. Other than that (and the chiller), works well.
i freakin love my chiller its been an absolute clutch growing here in the desert its not uncommon to see 120 degree days here and the chiller keeps my res at 68 degrees constant, honestly the reason i love to drain plants into one another is because its sooo much easier to spot deficiency in a group setting, whereas i see one plant struggling and 3 thriving i know that plant sucks and the genetics are trash
All of my plants are fed from the same rez, so they’re getting the same stuff. But plant 1 can’t get in the way of the return of plant 2…
i love the many ways to get this done its so versatile,growing is straight up magic irl
