420fied has his game on point. However I think hes going to the EbbnGrow shortly.Hes one of the extremely experienced guys here....I should know
Why should you know? Bc you have over a thousand posts since you joined 6 months ago, HOLLY CRAP PIT!!! I guess you really are in the know.
Hey and by the way I just finished reading the entire "nest", freaking awesome job dude. I can't believe that journal flew under my radar for so long.
It's almost scary how many factors the two of us have in common as far as size and location of grow space, funding for it, and a general passion for doing it all the best it can be done.
As I've said before this will be my first hydro grow 100% on my own. I've grown >100 plants in soil for almost 15 years and after getting a little experience with ebb and flo this summer with a few pals, would like to jump in head first. Not to mention I am completely out of the large grow opp business, for good!!
The biggest thing that scares me about hydro is the Nutes formula; the cost as well as getting the mixture correct. Aside from nutes I feel confident growing plants and tending to the needs of a larger grow opp.
I've been considering what system to use for almost a year now and have gone back and forth several times and for several different reasons each time. I think after all the consideration of cost, what will work in my space and also where my interests lead me, I will go with an Ebb and Flo system.
Pit I note in your journal you mention the system being pushed to its limitations by the use of 20 sites? Would you mind sharing your thoughts in detail? Its funny that they advertise that system to hold up to 48 sites off only a 55 gal reservoir, seems obvious just from that information, that it wouldn't work all that great but I guess people will believe anything they read. Pit the reason I ask is bc I have room for about 20-30 flowering plants in my new room and was thinking 20 sites would be a great place to start.
Thanks in advance for all the input on this subject since I started this thread almost a year ago. I think January will be the beginning of this deal once and for all, and will of course journal it all for those interested.
