Back in may Mars Hydro held a giveaway welcoming all members giving us all the chance to win a FC4800 LED grow light. By now I'm sure you guessed it lol I was the lucky random winner and I still can't believe it as I'm never that lucky! so finally my appreciation grow starts today
Unfortunately mars hydro's equipment doesn't sit on the shelf for long & the FC4800 was out of stock but we came to an agreement on a replacement light bagging myself a FC-E6500
Now before we get started.. @Mars Hydro team, thank you for my new light & all you do here at 420 as I know I'm definitely not the only member who you've blessed with such a gift. I will be forever greatfull & I have decided I will be doing two grow journals at the same time in honour of your generosity. I recently purchased a FC-E3000 to power my 3x3 (Room 2) & attempt my first RDWC so for success and I hope you enjoy the journals

Mars hydro FC3000
2X UK cheese clones (exo sku #1) RDWC
25L reservoir (temporary)
Firstly the star of the show is my new Mars hydro FC3000 300w full spectrum LED. This light came assembled so just unbox and hang, I was actually looking forward to assembling MH definitely changed my attitude to assembling lights! Again quality brushed chrome finish, light weight aluminium frame, removable driver, lockable mains leads & WiFi connectivity with smart app
Unfortunately my clones are delayed.. they was supposed to arrive today but my buddy had them in big pots of soil thinking he was doing me a favour so for now we will go over my equipment and ideas. I have never tried RDWC before only some DWC cloning so if you see me doing anything crazy please feel free to educate me I'm very open to it
Plans are to continuously bottom feed two buckets and have them both overflow back to my reservoir. I was also thinking of using Coco coir to fill my net pots instead of Hydroton pebbles? But depends on how my clones come. Also thinking of trying waterfall aeration in the Res but if it's too loud or insufficient I can stick a air stone in there. My air pump is quit loud so may need a new one.
To save space I will attempt to have my nutrient chiller and reservoir inside my tent. And nutrients I was going to try and use my Coco fertilizer? I'm guessing it just comes with extra calmag as standard.
New filters in my RO system so I will be back at 0ppm. Standard mix will be 0.5G potassium bicarbonate to 1Gal of RO, 1Ml/L shogun calmag then nutrient mix hopefully this keeps me stable. I chose Shogun calmag this time as it has a lower percentage of nitrogen, there was a zero percent but that was us only.
Current progress.. mostly salvaged parts, my feed line at bottom will also be connected to my drain system to make any water changes easier.
I think that's it for now.
Thanks for your time and support, Feel free to follow along.
