WOW!! I did not expect this much input, advise, and examples. If a person can not learn and make up his mind from this topic, they just need to stick with dirt…
I have read post on other journals from every one I tagged in this topic and I can’t say enough great things about every bodies knowledge. I do appreciate everyone of you for your input and wisdom.
I’ve seen the youtube video about the hydro build and it just doesn’t get any simpler than that. I can actually do that kind of a build but it would just be on a smaller scale then what he did.
@Bogleg appreciate the recommendation for the pump. I had actually look at a pump like that but didn’t know if it would be too much pump for an 18 gal tote.
@GreenJewels I can assure you, i’m learning from your journal as well. Thanks!
@WickedAle I appreciate your input also. I like the idea of just changing out the buckets. Do you use RO water? I saw a video of a guy and he uses RO water and the GH micro, GH Flora Nova, and Calmag and I think that’s all he uses. I have also notice a lot of people recommend just keeping it to the basics. My plan is to use just the micro, grow bloom, kool bloom, calmag and epson salt. Thanks again!
Water temp and humidity I think, will be my enemy. It can be challenging to keep conditions ideal in a small tent especially during the summer. We’ll see! Thanks again as always!
When you get time, can you explain how you regulate your water in your reservoir? example: if targeted goal is 700 ppm’s, your ppm’s drop to 500, do you add 200 worth of nutes to your water to bring it back up?
@BigDaddyCain DIY is definitely the way to grow. I have read a lot of your post and can’t seem to absorb enough info from you and everybody else. Thanks a million for your sharing your wisdom with not only me but also with everybody else.
I haven’t thought about having to use more nutes. If I were to go with an 18 gal tote, as the water gets lower, do I add more water w/nute to the water, or just add plain water? I’m trying to wrap my head around the idea of how to water when the water is already mixed w/nutes. I’m sure it will come in time.
@Grandaddy013 Thanks for chiming in on this. I wish I had the space for a 4x4 scrog.
I bet you have some green grass where it dumps in the yard. We fed our tomato plants last year with our runoff and boy did they ever explode when we started doing that.
@TDubWilly I have actually thought about just putting a small water pump inside the tote to stir the water a little bit along with about four air stones?? What say you? Thanks for the video of the o2 that’s pretty interesting.
