    Octopot Adventures: A Community Exploration

    Hey there! I think the six gallon Octopot is a great place to start, I noticed yields double once I started using the Octopot. I would follow the recommendations of whatever nutrient line you are using, ppm around 900 and also use an enzyme like Cannazym to keep the water from getting funky. If...

    DIY Octopot Ammi Haze

    There you go. I like where you are headed. Maybe leave them under the net until the stretch stops and then let them grow up. But I know nothing about scrogging, so don't listen to me. I like what you have done with the filter man, much better. Keep them rocking, they look great!

    Switching from those Hempys to Octopots will pay for theirselves in the first harvest.

    Air pruning is when roots hit air and stop growing at that point effectively "pruning" them and causing them to spread out versus continue growing in the direction they were headed.

    You are going the opposite way of how I grow, which is recommended by Octopot. They say once the roots hit the res, keep the res topped up. You don't want those roots air pruning. Also, I don't mess with foliars, too much trouble.

    Yes, but that's more of an average versus a record yield. I think at this point Mega Crop is a very solid nutrient line but your yield will be heavily dependent on the genetics.

    DIY Octopot Ammi Haze

    Looking good man. Just found this thread. If your Octopots work like mine, those plants are going to explode and take up the whole space. I run 2-3 Octos in a 4x8, they love to spread out.

    No, I haven't used TTF enough to say I am leaning more towards one or the other. I have used TTF on a few plants but not enough to make a judgement. I have used Mega Crop at 5 grams per gallon with CalMag at 5mL per gallon and usually add Silica as well. I have gotten 19.35 ounces from one plant...

    Hey, I am just following the directions that good growers who have gone before me have set out. I am good at following directions and it works. Doesn't give me a green thumb. ;) But happy to hear you are liking it.

    I think my previous record yield was 8 ounces before Octpots. Since Octopots 12 ounces is about an average. And I just dump 5 grams/gallon of MegaCrop and 5mL/gallon of CalMag in there. That's it. I don't look to the plant for any cues, etc. I am an ok grower, definitely not on the level of a...

    Octopot Adventures: A Community Exploration

    I did not investigate further. From the funk it created I was stopped in my tracks. One could try an air stone, but I won't be the one to go down that road as I am perfectly happy with the results I am seeing from Mega Crop and Texas Tomato (not together, each on their own right). The medium is...

    Hey, I am stepping out and trying new things and now my yields are up blowing away what I did before with inconsequential quality loss.

    Nice work Avatar, interested to see how you like it. I am 100% sold on Octopots. Crazy yields.
