Welcome to SIP Club!
There are an increasing number of us growing in SIPs (Sub Irrigated Planters) so I thought I'd start a community thread where we can all post pictures, links to our various SIP threads and have general discussions on theory and application of these incredible pots.
So ive been growing for some time using a home made RDWC system, my mate got me started having something simular on a larger scale (24 plants)... anyway simple gravity fed system
The system did me solid for a fair few grows not bad for some PVC and fittings from the local hardware...

Good morning folks,
I am having some PH issues with my DWC and I really need someone with experience / knowledge to help me understand what the hell is going on.
My DWC consists of a 10-gallon tub filled with 5 gallons of water. This DWC is supporting a single plant that has been growing...
building and ebb and flow multi site system and was looking at buying a Brain Bucket Controller with float switches and such. but they are like $250 and I think I can make a much simpler design.
I came up with little idea and drew it out for a visual.
the idea is that,
What Strain is it?
Super Silver Haze
How Many Plants?
Is it in Vegetative or Flowering Stage?
If in Vegetative Stage... How Long?

What Strain is it? Blue Dream
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages? Hybrid 50% Sativa 50% Indica
How Many Plants? Just 1

If in Vegetative Stage... How Long? Day 21
If in Flowering Stage... How Long?

Question: Could the elevated temperature of the nutrient solution in my reservoir, and possibly the overnight pH drops, be the result of the bacteria culture that I dose the tank with at my weekly water change? (2 ml/gallon Hydroguard brand bacillus)
What I have observed
My reservoir has been...
Hi all -- Keeping the pH of my reservoir in limits has been my biggest challenge. I notice that Advanced Nutrients claims that their "Perfect pH technology" (some kind of buffering system, I assume?) will help with this. Does anyone have experience with this (or have other tips for keeping pH...
From a design developed by member Saibot I built a fairly elaborate 4 bucket RDWC system with an external reservoir using ¾" inlet (pump) and 1.5" return (drain) lines along with a 1000 gph water pump. Saibots manifold design has several failsafe's built in to eliminate almost every chance of...
Hey another question i am having a hard time understanding rdwc reservoir and nutrament mix up. I tried doing a little research about the subject but couldn't find exactly what i was looking for. For example if i am preparing my reservoir which is 75L which is 16.5 gal but will round it up to...
Hey everyone let me get y'all up to speed
*Have 14 if all females ? Got know idea what strain. But have 2 sherbert germinating.
Sherbert- Indica 85% Sativa 15%\ 15% thc
? Are early veg. Transplanted them 2 days ago. Put them in 10 x10 baskets 2 per basket with clay pellets
For my first ever grow I put together a simple 2 bucket RDWC system with 5 gallon buckets a 320 gal/hr submersible water pump and 2 - 4 L/hr air pumps (1 in each bucket). It has served me well and functioned great. My plan was always to build a more permanent larger system, and armed with a...
My reservoir is a 25 gallon bin. My plants drip feed in rockwool (double stacked 6" blocks), then drain into the reservoir.
I'm finding that I'm often adding fresh water to balance the nutes/pH from creeping up.
I currently have a top off valve running from my RO system into a bucket for...
I'm trying to work out what could be causing these leaves to be all twisted up, the plant that is affected is a GG Allin from Southern Star Seeds (Haze IO), it is the only plant of that strain I have growing, two other strains have been growing healthy under same nutes and light...
Hi all, I'm new to the sites and am reaching out for some help.
I'm on my first grow and things are mostly going really well. I have a single plant, it's a seed a friend bought from Amsterdam a few years ago. Allegedly og kush.
I'm in my second week of flowering and the pistils are coming...
I have a 15 gallop reservoir and I was attempting to water my Coco 75%/Coco25% six times a day using drip irrigation.
As it is set up today, the plants will receive 1.5- 2 gallons of nutes everyday in total which will work well- at least I thought.
I went down to check the plants today (...
Not a bad grinder at all. It was lighter than I thought (176 grams). Came with a kief scraper. It has more teeth than I expected as well. Lid sounds a bit loose now but the magnet holds it no problem and after some time being used, the lid will get stickier with weed residue and the lid will be...
