Mr Bubbles Goes Hydro RDWC


Well-Known Member
Hello fellow growers! :byebye:

For those who haven't seen my previous journals my name is Mr. Bubbles. I have been growing for about 5 years now. During this time I've tried quite a few different methods and have changed/improved my setup more times than I can remember. I have grown over 30 strains and created 10 of my own. Even with my experience I still consider myself a rookie and learn new things every day.

I have not been very active on 420mag for quite awhile and my last few journal attempts were abandoned. Hoping to start a new journal documenting my recent switch from soil to hydro. This will mainly be photos documenting my progress, but feel free to ask any questions.

What strain is it? My grow is perpetual and I am currently running 14 different strains.
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages? Indica and Sativa hybrids
Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Veg box is 6' x 6' and Flower box is 8' x 6'
If in Veg... For how long? In the past I would usually veg for around 2 to 3 mos. I am finding with my hydro setup that is not necessary. I'm still looking for the sweet spot but aiming for 4 weeks currently.
If in Flower stage... For how long? I harvest every 20 days. I have plants at week 6, 4, and 2.
Indoor or outdoor? Indoor
Soil or Hydro? Hydro (Snypes RDWC) using Hydroton and 3.5 gal buckets with 8in netpots. Very proud of this system. Built it myself for around $250. I currently have 1 6 site. I will be building 1 additional 6 site for veg and then a single 12 site system for flower. In the meantime I'm using the RDWC for veg and using DWC for flower.
Size of light? Veg 8 bulb T5/ Reflector Series LED and Flower 3 600 Watt HPS/MH
Is it aircooled? The rooms are air cooled but in the Winter I don't need to duct the cooltubes.
Temp of Room/cab? Night 70f/Day 80f
RH of Room/cab? 50%
PH of media or res? I do not PH. I use the AN PH perfect line.
Any Pests ? Occasional Spider Mites and Thrips. IPM is Method 1 from Growth Efficiency Technologies.
How often are you watering? Topping my reservoir anywhere from every 3 to 5 days.
Type and strength of ferts used? Advanced Nutrients Sensi Grow/Bloom AB, Bud Candy, Nirvana, and Big Bud 1/4 strength

Here's a pic of my current veg room...

Watered the last of my soil plants last night and moved 3 more plants from the RDWC to DWC's in flower. 2 of them are different phenos of tangilope x rollex og. The 3rd is a quantum kush x rollex og.

Here's a few pics of the flower box...

Hope all is well in your world.

Is this grow still alive?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

If you need any help with posting photos, please read our Photo Gallery Tutorial.

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.

Sending you lots of love and positive energy.
