    New undercurrent RWDC setup almost all complete: drains for each grow site question

    So I have my new setup almost all complete with a 4 site undercurrent with 3" piping in a 5x5 tent with a remote control epicenter. I built it up on a raised rolling platform with an inner channel and there is ample room under the setup. The epicenter is a Current Culture 13gal and has the...

    Water chiller leaving water on floor under it: condensation?

    Hi all, got a new/user 1/4hp activeaqua chiller for my new undercurrent system I've been building. Did a good full water tight test and used water from the hose in the system which was pretty hot, once the system was filled up it was 85 degree water. Ran the chiller and pump for a few hours...

    Auto-filling 55gallon barrel with RO water, best valve?

    My undercurrent rwdc is getting close to completion and I was working on my extra water storage barrel. Going to have a RO system run water to the barrel to store up fresh water that will then drain into the top-off res/system. It has the 2 bungs on the top. I can use a manual valve but don't...

    Anyone ever tried a PerfectPH inline or drop in auto pH adjuster from Torus hydro?

    I'm getting setup for my next grow with a 4 station undercurrent rwdc with a remote control res out of the tent. I grew some monsters in 7gal buckets but the twice a day ph checks and water adding was just too much work and on this big system, automatic would be nice. I was probably going to...

    How to best support big ole top heavy flowering plants in 5gal/7gal buckets that want to fall over

    So the two plants got to be pretty big and were a monstercrop anyhow and are really getting heavy on top. They are in 7 gallon buckets now which are just tall 5 gallon buckets. 3.5" net pot that I have taped all over and giving a bunch of extra support, but it's no longer enough. It's dwc so...

    Quantum lights are so flippin' bright, what protective glasses are you using?

    I have a pair of these Apollo's I have used now into the second grow and they were decent with the old cob lights but these new big quantum boards with the lm301b's are so intense I wonder if there is something better. Checking the plants once the lights come on at 9pm makes for such intense...

    New 600W QB setup in my 5x5, hanging heights?

    So I upgraded my tent from a little 2x4 to a 5x5 and decided it was time for a lighting upgrade from the cobs I had to something more robust for flowering. I have 2 panels with 1400 lm301b's and like 200 far reds. I'm wrapping up veg for another week or so and to get a feel for the lights and...

    Moving up from 2x4 tent to 5x5, building spread out QB array vs panels vs COBs?

    Hi all, been trying to figure out where things are at with the qb setups these days, but the tech seems to be changing pretty fast and it's hard to get a clear answer after reading for a few hours. I currently in my 2x4 tent have it pretty well lit with two quad COB's and one triple COB. I had...

    Huge single node leaves?

    So I have a clone I took from my grow that I topped a while back and it's been blowing up some huge single node and few node leaves. It's Jack Herer and dwc. Parent plant never did this. Should I just trim off and defol all these weird big ones and let the normal new growth take over...

    Electric company billing change to cheap outside of the hours of 4-9pm and expensive then vs just a flat monthly total billing

    Anyone have their electric company change to a billing like this? It's optional, but I am sort of thinking it could be advantageous. I'd have 18 hours there so I could just run that lights out and if ac is needed crank it right before the time change and lights out. They seem to already know...

    Day 57 of flower, have a 1 week ripen and 1 week flush on nute schedule, start that now? How close does it look?

    Have some jack herer in DWC with general hydo performance pack nute schedule. It has 1 week of 'ripen' nutes that includes dry koolbloom. Then a 1 week flush. Currently on late bloom nutes and it's been a week so it is time to do a res change tonight. Trying to decide though if I should keep...

    Signs to know you are in the final 2 weeks of flower

    I know how to tell when things are getting ready for harvest with the trichs turning milky then amber....but how do you know when you are at 2 weeks out or 3 weeks out? The nute schedule has things tapering down before a flush. Flower time is listed as 8-10 weeks on the seed site. I'm...

    What do you do with your hydro res wastewater?

    What does everyone with a dwc/rdwc do with the wastewater pumped out of the res on res change day? I've been giving some to outdoor trees and such in relatively small amounts and never really know what I should be doing with it. I don't think I want to be giving heavy nuted water to these same...

    What do I do here, pluck/cut/leave alone?

    In flowering day 12 and noticed this on the top of a branch. I'm guessing I knicked it with the trimmers at some point or that site got damaged somehow. Should I trim it off? Just leave it? Otherwise the grow is looking fantastic I think. Anyone notice any visual queues to any nute...

    Does the base of my plant look ok? Moisture plus light on the rockwool around equals mold?

    Hi all, Quick question on my grow... On the left plant at the base of the trunk where it went into the hydroton rocks and rapid rooter. I had adjusted a week or two ago the water pump inside and turned the top feed back on for the right plant to stimulate extra root growth which worked...

    Where to place lights during flowering transition week

    Hi all, I have switched over to 12/12 lighting schedule on my scrog'd plants. The lights veg height is 18-30" (been running at 18" for veg happily) and they say for flower 12-18" distance. I moved em down for their first 12 hour lighting to about 15" and it seemed ok this morning at the end of...

    2 Plant Jack Herer Fem, SCROG, DWC, COB LED Lights

    Hi all, I started this without a journal but at about the halfway point it seems like a good idea for ideas and to keep track of things. This first post will be pretty pic heavy catching things up. Doing a first grow ever in a cheap 2x4x6 tent, using two amazon 800w COB led lights. (Power...
