Okay, so let me start off by giving you a little background information. This is only my second grow using hydroponics and I am still trying to figure out which system I like the best and is the most advantageous for growing marijuana in my particular situation. I am growing using a perpetual system. I have 1 flower room and 1 veg room. I recently got my medical marijuana card and now can legally grow my own medicine. Problem is I had a lot of experience with smoking the plant, but very little experience growing the plant. I have completed my first grow which was very beneficial for me. Learned a LOT. Also found out how much i DID NOT KNOW. I did a lot of reading, researching and spent a lot of money buying lights, ballasts, nutes, soil, the list goes on and on. I learned a lot during that first grow. I am by no means an expert but I was surprised how well my plants came out considering I had never grown before. Once I started growing MJ I realized how much I was enjoying myself and it has since become a hobby for me. My first grow using hydroponics is still ongoing I have a GH Waterfarm with a Purple Urkle clone going under a 1000 watt Sun Master MH vegging for 3 weeks using FF Grow Big Nutes and AN Sensizym. Water I am using is drawn from a well and needs little if no PH adjustment. URKLE plant is HUGE and doing extremely well. Like a small bush even with no LSTing or supercropping this strain grows like a palm tree naturally. Whoever bred this strain, my hats off to you. I had gotten two clones at the exact same time of Urkle, put 1 in the waterfarm and planted 1 in a 3 gallon pot with FFOF soil. The plant grown hydroponically is nearly double the size of the plant grown in soil. This was not really a scientific experiment but it did give me the idea that I could increase yield as well as quality by growing hydroponically. I am sick and tired of cleaning up soil spills, dirty water spills, watering, over watering, under watering. The list goes on. Hydroponics has its own set of challenges but I like it a lot more than dealing with soil. Soil belongs outside! So to make a very long story less long I went to the grow shop and purchased a 5 gallon black bucket with a netpod lid, air pump an airstone and 10 feet of tubing. I already had some hydroton. Next I went to the local MMJ collective and got a clone with the strain labeled as "CARNIVAL". Never heard of this strain but it appears to be some kind of Indica dominant. I am going to try my hand at a DWC grow and if all goes well I will be switching over from soil to hydro 100% I am growing several other strains in soil at the moment in my veg room under T5s and CFLs making mother plants. The strains I am growing are mostly Indica dominants including White Romulan, Purple Urkle, Trainwreck x Purple Monkey Balls, Hash Plant, Papaya, Headband x shishkaberry, Lemon Diesel, and Pitbull. Up to this point I have always grown in soil but now I have this bubble bucket to use as a test case. If everything goes well I plan on switching over entirely to hydroponics and getting a Ebb n Grow bucket system or something similar. I like the bucket systems better than trays...just personal opinion I guess. For nutes I am using AN CONNOISSEUR part A and B. The guy at the grow store says he uses it with his own plants and has seen good results. The Foxfarm nutes I have been using in my GH Waterfarm were doing a great job but I want to use nutes specifically tailored to growing cannabis. I am surprised over all how well things are going. My question is regarding the bubble bucket and the Connoisseur nutes. In a 5 gallon bucket with netpot lid how many gallons of Nutes should I mix up? The guy at the grow shop told me to keep the bottom 3 or 4 inches of the netpot submersed in nutes until secondary roots develop and then lower the nutrient level. Makes sense to me. If all goes well with these bubble buckets I will be buying 5 more or possibly a circulating bucket system and will make a grow journal with pics once I get the hang of growing with this thing. I am also hoping the Connoisseur nutrients I got work well because they were very pricey. 1 Liter was 37.00 dollars and it is a 2 part solution. The 1 gallon containers are 100.00 a piece. Next week I start flowering. Wish me luck! Also, if anyone has any experience with using Bubblebuckets and or the Connoisseur nute program please feel free to post any useful information. Happy Halloween!
