Well the drip system is up and running. Currently have it set for 15 minute feedings 4 times a day.
Every plant I've flowered has done that the first week our so of 12/12 maybe they require a little more sulfer/calcium during the stretch. I don't react to it cause it doesn't last long.
I actually made the switch to coco after looking at Subnoise's thread as well. I also wanted to have more control this time and so far it has been great.
Yeah I am definitely really excited to see how these plants do with the AN line and drip system. I got the hobbyist bundle for a steal. All in all its around $140 in nutes though, so it better be worth it. I filled the rez 3 days ago and it is about ready to be refreshed. I think I will be able to get about 2 more feedings out of it if I needed to.
Thankfully my grow tent is inside in an extra room that is not currently being rented. I thought about putting it in the garage, but I do lots of car work out there and there are just so many chemicals flying around I figured my buds would end up tasting like PB blaster.
I have an automatic heater in the room that is currently set to keep the ambient temp at 77 degrees and use all my money. The interior is sitting at 73 currently. It is currently 5 degrees outside so I am glad the house is well insulated.
Actually had an issue 2 days ago when power was cut to our block due to my meth head neighbors ramming their wrangler into some power lines. It was only out for about an hour but I realized that I have no way to keep the plants alive overnight if that happens again.
They also ditched the car before the cops arrived so naturally the street was crawling with law enforcement trying to find them. Talked to a few of the state guys who showed up and they were unable to comment, but I am 99% positive there is a meth lab next door.... According to my neighbors our property used to be their (the meth guys) opium field about 10 years ago before it was sold.
Why are people still doing real drugs now that weed is legal?
Edit: It is also pretty cool to watch the sheriff search your block through the window between bong rips and know that YOU are not the one in trouble!
