    thanks, but i dont have them in that anymore. that was only temp. i could still use it for a veg closet still i guess. hehehe i put together a permanent one 4' tall by 3' wide by 2'6" deep. it has a fan with hose pulling cool air from outside in, another fan to circulate the air and another at the top to push warm air out through a dryer hose. ill take some pics and post them so you can see im still looking for some cheep mylar or space blanket to line the inside so its not yet completely finished.

    thanks for the help everyone and cross your fingers for lots of females.

    oh yeah im germinating my last 4 big budd beans as well. the two i had germin' are now in dirt. they too off like a bat out of hell. they went from a 1/3 long tap root to about an inch tall (in rock wool cube). so if the 4 new ones all sprout, i will have 8 big budd and 1 unknown. im thinking its a sativa as well.

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    hmm.. looks like man sacks to me bro! i'm sorry about that, I just got done reading your journal, i had the exact same issues with my Deep Water Culture hydro bucket, I ended up taking the cali-o bud from there and putting her in dirt. my issue was that the nutes i was using was clogging my airtstone and leaving a film on my tubing. so I cleaned the bucket out and bought some dnf hydro nutes and fired it up again, everything works great now, check out my unkown in the bucketshe's at two weeks in the bucket. +reps for not giving up bro!

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    I love looking at that hydro bucket.
    I am new to growing, and i've decided that Hydro is for me, my buckets are working fantastic so far. (knocks on wood) I just noticed an elevated PH in my system and want to correct that, but my plants are getting so big so fast I decided to let it wait out. I heard that as the plants feed they naturally lower PH, Im still trying to figure this out.
    Good luck, and i'll be watching.

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    ^ honestly I check the pH of my solution when I mix it and change the water, but after that I don't check until the next res change. this system literally supercharges growth and if the plants growing I don't mess with it. Now if I see a problem, then I do the necessary checks and correct what's necessary, but after a while the root system gets so big, and they start sucking up water so fast, u have to just add water each week instead of changing it lol

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    Sorry about the wait I'm on my iPhone typing this so bare with me. As soon as I can get the batery charged. I picked up a clone from the shop the other day! Only one for now and they get them fresh from the Oksterdam nursary. It's headband because he said it is easy to grow. I might go pick up a few more once I see this ones doing good. It is super healthy looking and loves her new home. As far as thepotential dude, I'm still not 100%and I'm thinking of throwing it in a pot and putting him in the back yard and let the sprinklers that come on 2x a day. Just to practice taking cuttings and topping. And hey, maybe I can get some shake off him that I can make some brownies with lol. 3 more have sprouted all big bud and have been in dirt for a few days now.

    High Nycal just read through your thread, very creative!!! I have to say the majority of your pics show sad mj plants :-(


    My #1 question I have, mainly caust the post I've read through doesn't specify what your pH is at? Thats the only thing holding me back from going to hydro is the high maintenance regarding the pH, IMO

    Keep it up!!!

    Oh the ph was kept at around 5.6-6.2 it would drift but I think it was because of temp problems. The ph is a little work but you should check the run off of soil as well. Not too much extra work. I just Dont have the funds or means to keep the res temps low in the sunny so-cal summer days.

    Exclamation Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    here they are i will be talking throughout the show;


    ^this is what i strongly believe to be a male now outside away from the others.

    ^this is a side view.

    ^main stem tops

    ^one tip

    ^same tip zoomed in

    ^other tip

    ^another side view

    ^this is where he will live or die up to him. might let him mature just for the shake to make some stuff.

    ^this is miss big budd doing great! she has been topped and the lower growth came out of no where.

    ^her main stem with all the new growth.

    ^looking down at her

    ^another of her stalk.

    ^ last but not least, little miss headband clone from oksterdam nursery. shes going through some light LST because i wanna try my hand at cloneing so i need lots of good growth. she will be one of a few soon hopefully. i only got one because i am out of soil. so as soon as i get the funds up ill be getting some good ff soil and a few different strains of clones.

    ^side shot of her

    ^close up of main growing tip.

    so what do you all think. to me they look healthy, but unfortunately im colorblind so its difficult for me to tell.
