So newest grow...............

4" PVC with 4"x4"x2" Tees to hold the ladies

Reservoir is an igloo cooler that helps to maintain temps (need to add chiller still) rez temps sitting in the mid 70's and about 20 gallons in the system once the pump is running.

Nutes: Advanced Nutrients grand master grow level - I love the ph perfect line just did a successful grow using AN in my one of my cloners. Didn't adjust the PH once and about to start the trimming on it and its some sticky sticky stuff
Light: Using Top LED 900 will be adding a second and two light rails once I finish the build for the other side

Still have to run a screen some of the clones are already to big with 10 days of growth for 3 of them the remaining are added with no grow time so strait from clone.

Strains: Jack Herer, A.(and another letter that sounds like K), Snow White, Industrial Plant

As you can see from the mothers tent I have 8 different mothers so breaking it down half and half and my cloner is already full waiting for the second round.

They are the 2" net pots that I use in my cloner the T's are 4"x4"x2" and the 2" net pots fit inside them perfectly and increases surface area available for roots.

So two weeks completed at 12/12, they are explosive not bad size considering they came strait from the cloner. Industrital plant and Snow White have both started showing their flowers. AK in the middle is to busy growing to waste time with flowers lol..

Its such an easy system working on building my next one right now but the simplicity is nice I call it plug and play as all you have to do is plug in plants and add some water every other day and harvest 56 days later. Of course using Advanced Nutrients PH Perfect line helps cut down on taking the ph measurements or having to deal with that.

You see the box full of 4" lengths of pipe every single connection is a 4 inch piece of pipe when glued and fully pressed actually makes about an two inch space between them. If you want a system you can plug plants into top off a res a few times a week that will produce outstanding results this is it. Its modular and everything can be bought at any home improvement store and this one will cost less then 200 to build with res and pump and I use ice chest for my reservoirs as they are rugged and can hold a temp. I work a lot and when I get home I smoke my stuff so that locks me to the couch so I want a system that is very simple to maintain.

So here is what it looks like during the assembly process I glue all the pieces for a row at once then flip it down and tap it down to keep them all level cause you may mean to cut all the 4" pcs the same size but a 1/4" of inch here or there can make a difference after a few pieces are together. I give each row a good amount of drying time before adding another one reason is vanity and the other is that I don't have to worry about any wobble. Tempted to silicone all my seals this is most likely unnessarcy but my last one had a few seals that needed to be put on and that's a pain once u have flooded it and I like dry floor over the cost of the silicon.
