You are a man of many talents sir!
On another note....I was approved for my "Med Mary Jane Card" today. Still got to file the paperwork BS with the state of MO but I like the direction it's headed. The thought of growing my own cannabis without fear of being locked up sounds really f..ing good to me.
Hey Caddie, my setup is a flood-and-drain. I love the Dutch bucket setup but for it to work properly the buckets must be above the reservoir. I was going smaller in the attic so giving away those 24 vertical inches didn't hurt but in my 10x10 tents I need all the vertical space so flood and drain is the best way.Hey brother, your grow is looking excellent... Been trying to figure out how your new set up works. Is it a RDWC? I'm sure its fairly simple but I don't quite understand by the pics. Looks like a crazy octopus thingy... Your dutch bucket set up in the "secret grow lab" worked so well why did you decide to change it up?
Exactly! A 55-gallon drum (food-grade plastic) with a couple pumps, one in the bottom of the reservoir and one in the "control" bucket (the one the other 12 are all connected to). Four times a day the first timer runs the "flood" pump for about 10 minutes, which is long enough to fill all 12 buckets to about 2/3 full, which soaks the root balls and provides fresh, fully oxygenated water. It soaks for a few minutes then pump #2, in the control bucket, turns on for about 20 minutes, long enough to gently pump all the fluid back into the main barrel. As long as the timers and everything is set correctly, it works like a freakin charm.So, the buckets flood and drain from the same tube at the bottom of each bucket? Flood with some sort of pump and drain using gravity?
I wonder whether the clones were cut from the same height off each mother? Clones from lower down will root faster than tops. Something to do with hormones.Even though there are only two mother plants, and each gave six of these clones, there is a height difference between some of them.
Well, I roll up to the GH once a week and it's my relaxing getaway day...used to be a chore but now that we're pretty much stuck in our house it's something I can't wait to do, providing a much-needed break from endless boredom and home improvement projects...Nice updates, Hyena. I hope it doesn’t get too tricky for you to move freely between home and garden.

May be the sort of variation a flesh eating predator of the savannah may have overlooked IDK?
