Two much for what, lol?Someone mentioned that a 5 gallon Hempy buckets is too much.
Thanks. Just part of my cheapest nutrients possible program. Lol. I grow too many different cultivars to follow any strict schedule and remain properly lazy for the full hempy experience.looking good in there. i'm working up to the switch to mega-crop. is the maxibloom part of the MC program ?
Thanks @bluter, I was going with the ability to go longer between "feeds" but bigger plants in small pots is definitely a good advantage to have.one of the advantages of hempy is the ability to grow a fairly large plant in a relatively small pot.
That's my thought here. The key is finding that balance that you mention between too much water in the reservoir and stagnant water. I like the 5 gallon buckets because it leaves me with enough room on top that I can just dump an entire gallon and move to the next plant without having to wait to water.Since you place the hole wherever you want, you could presumably be fine with any size container.
That's exactly why I am doing this test run with my wedding cake clones. I live in Michigan so chances of power outages during the fall/winters are a very high. Luckily I have not had this issue and so far but Hempy has been pretty straight forward so no over/under watering issues and growth has been impressive enough that I can live with water every other day.they aren't affected by power failures
They lived in my veg closet 24/0 from seed. I was searching for autoflower phenotypes. After 3-4 weeks, 2 autos showed. I waited a week and when I was confident the rest were photoperiods, I threw them out except these two because I had wasted light in the flower tent (11/13) and these were ready to flower immediately. I don't regret my decision.But I don't remember whether those are clones from a mother plant or plants grown from seed under a 12:12 (or 11:13, or 10:14) light schedule.
Yeah.... Comparable is the wrong word. Growth in dwc will be faster for sure. I was just thinking just a cool experiment and take everything else into account like amount of work/maintenance, nute usage, veg time, etc vs amount/quality of yieldIf it is, you're not adding enough DO to your DWC, lol.
Hempy is certainly a valid form of passive hydroponics. And a valid form of hydroponics in general.Yeah.... Comparable is the wrong word. Growth in dwc will be faster for sure.

Such things often are. Not just because you'd need to double your space and duplicate a lot of your equipment, but there's the mental thing, too, for lack of a better term. Often, people end up unconsciously favoring one over the other in a comparison grow - and that can, of course, skew one's results. And then there's the entire question of how to set something like this up. Do you mirror everything (other than the ONE thing you're testing for / pair of things you're comparing)? Because that'll give you results. But, sometimes, one thing will provide better results if it is... used somewhat differently than another thing, whereas if they are both used the same way, it might favor the second thing instead of the first. If that even makes any sense the way I phrased it (I just used my brain in creating a post in a different thread, and now it is resting, lol). For example, if you're comparing two completely different types of lighting, do you grow the plants in exactly the same way even though one light might have better penetrative ability, while the other one covers a larger area? Do you feed them exactly the same thing, same ratios, same rates - even if the plants under one light start evincing one or more deficiencies? Et cetera.To be honest, sounds easier said than done
The smallest hempys I have done were/are about 20oz of medium. Almost always a single cola. Some cultivars do react badly to this. Autos are the worst in this size, don't know why, but they are.you've shown (IMHO) that the small-container hempy is viable regardless of the general type of cannabis plant. C
I strip everything 6 inches up from top of tube at day 21 of flower. I also pull all the big fan leafs that day.it looks fantastic buck.
do you strip all the side branches on those tube plants ?
