    Thank you for finding the info and clarifying what I was trying to say CanbisMxmus. Too many different scales and rates to be trying other peoples numbers. Best to know the dosage per liter or per gallon and recording your own numbers was all I was trying to say lol. I'll try not to change the subject anymore and just enjoy the grow show. I want to know as much as I can learn about these volks machines. This is definately a fun show to watch so I will try to limit my words to looks great, nice grow and all the other complimants.

    Debate on process, technique, and preferance are what make these journals valueable.

    ^^agreed, and its how you learn. I would have just gone on blindly (although i knew about the different scales) misreading my meter. I thought it was TDS (and thought that the calibration made up for the different scales) and now I know its EC and I calibrated it wrong. so i have no idea what i was feeding it.

    it shouldn't be too bad, since i was roughly following the directions on the label, more than the meter reading. my nutes are for sure on the light side, I'm gonna stop at the hydro store and pick up the right calibration solution on my way to my friends house.

    my boy fatherbaker has a bunch of trim work to do, and it goes much much faster with 4 hands. i figure i will be trimmimng for 3-4 hours. He better hook me up with something good cause i have maybe 4-5 grams left from my last harvest, and this wont be ready for more than a month, and it will have seeds.

    one quick note, I am planning on growing out every SR seed i get right off the bat. the lemon skunk's are prob 3 weeks behind the SR's and if i plant them right away, i should be able to run a monoculture spin the same day i pull the LS with seedlings that have already established themselves.

    I'm trying not to get frustrated with the wait to produce my own seeds. but i want smoke now!

    i mean, seeds are expensive, think about it, i'd need 80/run. feminized seeds are like 25-50 bucks for 5 for the type i want. so i have to do it this way anyways, and I am having fun trying to breed, and I'm learning so much about hydro, breeding, genetics, plant physiology (and i did register for a plant phys class next semester) it so fun.

    if I only had more room, or another wheel, so that i could have real harvest on the way. I could get 80 holy shits in 2 weeks if i asked for them.

    this is going to be frustrating to see a big harvest in a few moments.

    it took about 4 hours. nice looking holy shits. cola sizes would make pan proud.

    by the way, i had him bring over his meter and matched my EC to his. my hydro store didn't have an EC calibration solution. ill check the other one in my area on monday.

    It was low EC, so i added some grow. 1/2 as much as the bloom, brought my EC up to 1.6. i think that should be good.

    my leaves were curling under a bit, and the RW felt pretty dry when i checked it so i added another feeding. Its now being flooded twice a day for 1.5 hours each time. that's the same as last run.

    So much to learn about this art/hobby.

    WOF - I love those Eureka moments when the cause of a problem is suddenly understood.

    Hope the month passes quickly for you

    hey guys,

    i'm having some stem problems on one of my lemon skunks just above the RW. it looks like its rotting and week. I had to steak it just to keep it upright. I think its happening where i steaked it earlier, but i took the original steak off.

    ill post a pic in a bit.

    any suggestions would be appreciated.

    thanks blackbeast.

    yeah this style grow has been alot of fun.
    I am learning a ton. in the future i want to build a couple of these myself on a bigger scale.
    Even though MJ is totally doable in this size wheel, I think that the huge yield you could pull from a bigger wheel would give a better weight/No. of plant ratio. maybe even do a scrog.

    for people who have med cards and are concerned with plant count, i haven't seen anyone attempt this yet, but i can see no reason why you couldn't install a screen like maxx did, but make it much farther away from the light, bigger openings, veg for a few weeks, and scrog a few plants to fill the whole wheel. It would take a lot longer, but you would stay under the plant limit. then a couple of weeks after you flip 12/12, let them creep towards the light, and get huge. it should be easy to scrog in the wheel, they're already pretty confused about which way is up.

    I finally went to home depot and bought some good 6" venting hose to replace the absolute crap they sold me at the hydro store. the hydro venting fell apart on me within weeks. I can already tell that this home depot stuff is much more rigid. if anyone out there is about to buy venting, do your self a favor. get it from home depot.

    now my tent is totally sealed. (the tent still has louvers on the bottom, but not much air exchange from them) my cool tube has an intake that comes from outside the tent, and exhausts outside of the tent. my window ac unit is completely recirculating. My room temps dropped about 6-7 degrees and is now holding steady at 77 degrees, even while injecting co2 (15 minutes on, 105 minutes off @ 5 lph).

    my res was getting hot, and was sitting around 77 degrees. I started switching out frozen 1 gal jugs every day, and got it down to about 70.

    i am having some stem issues with some of the lempn skunks. i will post some pics when my batteries are done charging to see if i can get some expert advice.

    Just how much space IS there between the base of the plants and the light? I liked around 14" between the plant base and the screen so that I had room to get my hands/arms under it and do the daily adjusting. And that was when I could reach the center of the screen from all the way around (more or less). If I'd had to work from one side only I would have needed more room.

    Then there was the 12"-18" above the screen for the buds.

    Or go to one of those industrial rubber places and tell them that you are going to be working on vehicles with your garage doors shut and that you need some kind of HD "rubber" hoses that you can use to carry the exhaust gases from the vehicles to the ports you've made in your walls.

    Or actually break down and buy some of the flexible metal stuff that is used for that purpose.

    You'll probably never have to replace it.

    yeah, its called semi-rigid ducting, and home depot sells 8' sections for 12 bucks. I wanted to get some of that stuff. unfortunately the one i went to was all out of 6", so i got 25' of flexible stuff for 22 bucks. it is still really nice.

    the wheel only has 19" base to light. not ideal, but workable.
