A little about the grow... we started building it a few months ago and its finally finished. We insulted the entire container with 1" foam. We will br running 12 plants in a recirc dwc system we built fed by a 275 gallon resevoir. The flower room is 32' x 7' (yes a little narrow). The additional 8ft is a staging area. We are currently building a veg room, this is the only time we plan to veg in this container. We have very high expectations on this one.

We just put babies in the buckets yesterday. Only running 5 lights for veg. Vegging for a maximum of 5 weeks.

Will upload pictures this evening, until then ill leave this here for you guys.

As I said im running a recirc dwc that I made. Its fed by a 275 galoon rez (only 120 gallins in it currently until i get float.) 1" pvc main line comes out of res with 1/2" y's evrry 2 feet feeding the buckets, a 650gph pump sits at the end of the 1" main on a timer that recircs every 2 hours for 15 minutes. Weve had great success with this system (we usually run sprayers) kind 8f a revers ebb&flow. Then a 3/4" viny return tuben8ff the oump back to the rez. Ill upload a drawing if anyone is interested.
Sorry for any typos was in a rush

happy growing!

All questions, comments, and criticism welcome.

Z7 and flora extract for benis, won't be running any teas this round, maybe at the end of flower for some added flavor. Were really trying to push this flying skull line. But I have experiment with teas amd had great succes when it came to quality. I do use teas on my outdoor!

Amazing set up!!

what is the PH level of your water being fed through your RDWC system?

Right now its a little high then usual, 6.6. It will lower naturally as the girls produce acids. It wil be 5.8 before flower.

i would try to maintain it at around 5.8 as certain mineral elements are more available at lower PH levels, such as Calcium and Manganese..

I actually find that the PH will become more Alkaline as the plants absorb the water and nutrients. When i do a res change my PH is adjusted to about 5.5 and by the time next res change takes place, the water in the res has fluctuated to about 6.2 or 6.3. I've never experienced PH levels drifting the other way towards a more acidic PH level.
