@Mush4kush, It’s a start! keep it going and enjoy the people here. They know there stuff. Welcome to the party.
Cute little baby.
Promix HP or hydroton
Thanks @Donaldj , I will look into that.
Hydroton clay pebbles
Im a soil grower myself
@Countryboyjvd1971 I too am a dirt farmer. I may dabble with hydroponics at some point when I know a bit more about how these plants grow. My understanding is that Hydroponics is a bit less forgiving of errors but easier to recover from those errors.
Full disclosure: Calling myself a farmer of any kind is an exaggeration since I have never grown a thing in my life until a couple of weeks ago.
It is a lot less forgiving, when you have an issue it needs to be taken csre of asap. The other side is that a simple res swap can fix the problem quick. It’s a little give and take
Out of likes, @Dieselgrower, thanks for the additional detail.
Not a problem. I grow exclusively in promix now, but have been thinking about maybe using my small hydro setup to try and scrog or mainline a smaller lady… Mhmmm got my brain working now
Each system has it’s advantages and problems Hydro is just faster to correct than soil plants in soil can get just as large but once a hydro system is dialed in growth rates dwarf soil as do recovery rates. Soil is like a train slow steady to end of the line with every stop taking time to recover and gather speed from again.
Hydro isn’t nearly as sensitive as people think grower errors are faster to show and even faster to fix PH is a range not a set number 5.5-6.1 ppm likewise ph is out no big deal adjust with ph up or down in minutes ppm too low add more nutrients too high remove some solution and add fresh ph’d water In all honesty I check my ph and ppm every couple of days once set and top off as needed between res changes 7-10 days the rest is pretty much look and react only if changes occur much like soil.
First I would like to Welcome you to ILGM.
I see that you have already met some of the gang here. Awesome fokes !
Any way I saw your post and would like to share my grow with you. I to am growing two Strawberry Kush only in soil. Your’s and mine are very close in age. Here is a pic at 10 days.
Let me know what you think and I will tag you into my Journal.
But for now " Welcome "
PLease tag me I like all the info. Thanks to everyone
Totally awesome brother. I do see what your saying. With the ease of adjustment in a hydro system. I never looked at it like that pretty easy to understand how you put it. And I obviously see your results to. Speed of harvest is a problem of mine. I service 4 patients and I’m always waiting in a harvest it seems I’ve thought about going hydro for this reason. So now you got me going hydro and LED. Lmao. I need a go fund me. Lmao !!! Have you ever used Oct-o-Pots??
Yes welcome @Mush4kush!! You will b a growing guru in no time if you hang here. These guys will square you up.
