600 Watt HPS + Co2 + 40 Gallon DWC Res. Growing with Bubbles Pineapple Express Clones

Hey all This is my second go round at DWC.
Im working with a 600 watt HPS. My res is a 40 gallon BOTANICARE res. (its got about 25 gallons of nutes)
Two big ass air pumps not sure right off hand what kind but man are they nice...They are hooked up to air tubes that iv got winded underneath each plant AWESOME!!!
Im running my Co2 this go round so iv got no actual ventalation... except for my light, Which is sealed off so not to lose my precious Co2. So temps stay at 90 with the lights on, but i have great circulation in my tent due to a small desk fan at the base of the plants a nice fan blowing up the side and a really awesome window fan i picked up for $36 (which has all kinds of cool options like each fan (theres 2) can change direction so u can be pulling and pushing air or both push or vise versa
Iv got my Co2 pushing 3 lbs for 3 minutes every hour. Its off during the dark period.
Heres some pics, These are pinnapple express clones. 12/12 for a week or so. Vegged for 3 or 4 weeks...

I removed the water pump w/manifold and feeding tubes so they are no longer in the res raising my temps.
Since these pics i did a good amount of LSTing as well :MoreNutes::MoreNutes::MoreNutes::tokin:

Trouble, your grow looks great and I'm sub'd for the rest!
:welldone:

Don't worry that you're not getting much response yet. Just keep the journal going and people will come and comment.
:goodjob:

First I would like to say that your plants and setup look very nice. I don't know anything about DWC but I like to learn. So I'm subbed for the rest.

Second maybe try to talk to a mod and get your journal moved to journals in progress you might get more response in that area.

:goodluck:

On the Growers Forums page there are 6 mods at the bottom right of the page, private message one of them, I guess and ask them to move your journal if they can or just start a new journal over there if you want to go that route.

Thank you Thank you :)
Iv put ALOT of time and effort into this one ( oh and tons of hard earned $ too )
and am very proud of my ladies, even if they did stretch a little ' or alot lol '
I ran into tons of root problems last time and tried all kinds of shit to fix it. The problem pretty much ended up being my res its self. You really need a large res for this. A 10 gallon will work but the temps just get way too hot and you end up cooking your roots. Most people never even look into this problem due to the fact that a water chiller will run you into $300 + Who wants to pay that?? not me .
I havent had one root problem this go round "knockin on Wood" And iv done alot to make sure that i continue on with this good luck... maybe not luck at all.
I use H2O2 with all my nutes. Just one tsp. "5ml" a gal so not as much as recomended but its an awesome preventer.
I LOVE MY AIR PUMPS!! TONS OF OXYGEN! BILLIONS OF TINY BUBBLES.
These three things Havn't failed me yet and im by no means a pro but iv had a million problems and pretty much fixed and learned from my oops's lol. Iv brought as good as dead plants back to life a couple times that last grow WOW it was fun
Thats for taggin Along everyone :)

Im using GH nutes but im using sombody elses mixture. its very simple and seems to be working great. For the budding period its 5ml of GH grow, 10 ml of GH Micro, And 15ml of GH Bloom. I also add 5ml per gallon of H2O2 just incase ;)
Iv got my Co2 set to 3lbs for 3 minutes every hour. But i really dont know if thats set right. But seems ok 2 me lol

Looking good Troublesome2, nice hydro setup.
The water has a nice color to it.

Promising good results this way.:smokin2:
Can imagine temps going up bit too high for the roots in some hydro setups, you could always cool the container by leading cold air to and around it. Maybe that works.

My temps in my res stay at about 70* give or take a degree or two.
Thats due to its large size and good thick material.
Id like it at 68 but no matter how hard i try to be perfect i just cant lol ;)
A fan blowing on the outside of the res does work. It dropped the temp in my res about 2degrees my last go round.
Trust me everyone a larger res. is DEF. the way to go.
