    Re: the never ending Saga continues.purplekush GI grow 240 site and flood tables.

    yes im here...just finished all the grunt work... i have the 3 4 by 8 tables now and all the gear those were a bitch to move by myself..... the only thing left is to rewire the greenair lt8 /240 v light timer and run that throu the wall and do some minor alterations to the home ac system...( diverting all the upstairs airducts into the room and running an extra 20 feet of wire and bring the digital room thermometer right on the wall... ..found a good cheap place to get very nice rezs...the farm store! 67 bucks for a very nice non reactive chemical 110 gallon and they have a drain hole that goes to a garden hose fitting so thats goona make them very easy/fast to drain the rez... at that price i will be buying one for each table..
    pics in a few days..the easy stuff is over( buying all this stuff) now its time to kick it into high gear..a lot of work to do in the next week at least 30 to 40 hours...

    Yeah, that was for me. To both,

    OMENMAN

    You mentioned these 3x3xx2 in a question I had about the 3x3 netwell.

    The pic really helped get it right in my mind. With all these huge tables you're setting up, what are the smaller 3x3s being used for? Are you going to flower at that density? Or, is it clones being grown out, or veg, or ??

    Heavy duty stuff you got going.

    dawg..that 3 by 3 times 2 American hydroponicsa... was the first table i have every bought and used for hydro..i would by 2 by 4s and stuff and just use it as a drip pan for soil grows..soo ti was more of a starting out small geting use to hydro type deal and to veg out some plants for clones..i think i top them at least 6 times believe it or not.. i built 2 areo cloners and i lost about 250 clones with all those things. with leak.wrong sprayer heads ect.. now i know what im doing with those... ..gr..thats why i like to stick to my trusty wallmart jiffy cubes.. .... .thing is with sog at 4plants at sq feet..is you need to flower them when there 6 to 8 inchs high...2 to 3 inchs high if there more sativa... they need to finish at 15 to 19 inchs high...soo there all uniform..that is the key..doing that keeps the layer of buds even...flat tops means better light penetration which ='s more bud.....


    also a freind warned me about the big 4 by 8 tables.. i wish now i would of just done what he told me..owelll... hes a meddi grower out in Colorado about how to just stick with the 3 by 6 tables..theres smaller to work with..you can fit them into a mid size suv..and there relatively cheap....with the 3 by 6 tables..my freind runs a 70/30 sativa/indica strain and 6 days veg and 56 days flower...he can turn a table in 60 days.... so thats about 6 runs a year if you have your shit dialed in per flood setup... and he runs 4 plants a sq foot soo thats 72 plants each..with one 600 watt over each side..he saids he can pull 1.5 lbs off of each light...

    however i have opped for the large tables given the room size..24 feet by 13...soo i ll be running 600s on the outsides and 2 1000s on movers on the insides covering 12 feet..so thats like 6 feet a light..should be prettyy good.also i will have room on my bar for another 4 feet table..but when those samller tables are done i will be throwing them in the mix with the others... soo its goona be 3 4 by8s and one 3 by 6..and i should have a a 6 by 7 space at the end to squeeze in my gi grow when ever i get it back.. good niight all.long night..!!

    That is slick! + reps from me also.

    I realize that you aren't done yet and may have just not installed it, but you are going to need at least 1 or 2 'stringers' between the 4x8 tables. That is just too long of a 2x4 to support all that weight.

    Do you understand what I mean about the 'stringers'? I used to do concrete forming when I was much younger and that was the term we used. Another 2x4 (supported), running the same as the long part of the table under the 2x4s that the table is sitting on.

    Am I making sense?

    If you think of a railroad track, the cross ties would be the stringers supporting the long piece (track).

    thanks for dropping by ...grab a seat.
    the pots are 5.5 by 5.5 sell for about 55 cents each... i just did a test on the table and it seems i can get more then the 120 i was planing on..i guess that extra .5 inchs adds uo i can get 9 pots across and 18 pots deep.. soo your looking at 162 per table...but i dont think i will be doing that manny..goona be around 100 to 120 a table.... as the medium i will be using the silica rocks...i tryed it for the first time in my other hydro table and it seemed i didnt fuck it up soo i will continue using the rocks..but i will be mixing it with 50/50 of the chunky perlite... and as for work..yea its goona be...but no worries..i have a good country radio station i pick up and a wicked funny late night radio host soo that makes the times go by a little faster...

    hydroguard..hmm best stuff on earth..other then Snapple..lol.... now they changed the name to aquasheald is a bacteria protector for the roots...its one of the best things you can have for your hydroponic setups...

    "
    Botanicare has replaced Hydroguard with AquaShield Compost Solution. AquaShield Compost Solution helps seedlings and cuttings root faster and with a higher success rate by colonizing the root zone of the plant to form a barrier against harmful bacteria associated with Dampening Off and root rot.

    Aquashield is safe for use in soil gardens, soilless mix hydrogardens and aeroponic growing applications.

    It contains a mixture of these beneficial bacteria which break down (composts) organic debris to keep the plant roots clean and healthy:

    Bacillus subtilis
    Paenibacillus polymxa
    Bacillus circulans
    Bacillus amyloliquefaciens

    Botanicare's AquaShield is useful throughout a plants life cycle in both soil gardens and hydroponics systems to create a natural and beneficial growing environment.
    "


    hope that helps...



    also yea i do have the full line up for the stinkbud stup but i have the ionic one part boom and boost formulas and i have some of the bada bing.bada bang. bada boom.....


    with all those additives dont get caught up..theres only a few things across the board that all the companies have and then when that doesnt come down to it..its all in the plant.... for ex/// my purple kush at at one week flower lookied like it was at day 21 and at day 21 it looks close to 6 weeks..thats not nothing to do with the nutes thats the plant..however i do have good food im feeding it but it has done that for me in soil as well...i will take pics tomarrow if i can to show you this..its truly unreal..i have never seen a plant grow soo fast and be soo developed..so quickly..i was just moving some plants around and my hands were already soo sticky from the resin that's covered everything and its already shining purple all over.....and this isjust shy of 3weeks...

    yea man im no way near done... if i didnt have feet or /stringers every 3 to 4 feet which i bought some bad ass screws for ..theres no way that bar could hold the weight of 3 tables loaded up...also i do have 3 cross support bars that link the two 16 foot paralleled 2by 4s..that will be in place and as will a 8 foot by 16 foot scrog netting to keep everything growing strait up.... each flood table will have two 2 by 8s running the length of the table to bear the weight
