Ok so all 8 girls are going well , I made an intermediary dwc , like a bbl cloner but for ~2 weeks or so , more than that and the roots will get tangled .

This should give me enough time to make some money for the RDWC build

Ph'ing the solution with trace amounts of nutes inside was a pita, pizza got cold ... ofc misus got upset all hell broke loose , don't get it why , it was my pizza.

This is a very active community, I notice people like to congregate around certain threads. You have lots of lurkers about 225 view and your still on page 1 of your journal keep it up.

Thanks bro !

I'm super excited right now , I just raped the credit card ... wanted one mh bulb and ended up with a whole lot of other junk .

Now , if anyone wants to jump in the rdwc madness .. the way I designed my sistem is not exactly perfect , totes are too big and water return is too small and thru the totes .
I think a much better design would be with a big collector pipe/manifold that runs next to the totes and to the outside res . I mean something like 70-80 mm shower drains in every tote connecting in a 150-200mm drain pipe manifold that would connect to the res , and then feed the totes with a much smaller manifold from the res , a 4-5k L/h pomp will do .
This should make mixing and ph-ing faster .
Another problem I can see is the last tote has a bit higher water level , about 1cm higher than the others , don't think plants will mind though.

Just subbed. Looks like a fun grow. I am currently growing in Coco (first try) and have at least 2 DP Auto-Ultimate planted but not sprouted after 6 day. I dropped another 2 this afternoon and think I will keep them germinating a little longer.

To get more people on board it really helps to add your Journal Link to you Signature.
