    Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    ok so my last journal was a mess from changing things around so to make it easier i just started a new one.

    my set up:
    2 x 18gal Tupperware heavy duty bins


    6 x daylight 6500k 26 watt CFL's
    1 x warm white 6500k 48 watt CFL's
    (one was taken out after the picture and they were neatly aranged for maximum coverage)


    1 x 10 gal Tupperware bin for res with double outlet air pump with two 18" bubble stones
    not surewhich are which any more but you can tell there are 3 different strains. 2 are some i found in some chem dawg from a very reputable coop so im interested in what will become of it. 2 or 3 are kool aid and the rest are jack frost. all of which are bag seed. dont wanna spend too much on seeds my first time

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    im not realy sure whats going on but the leaves are curling around ill get pics up asap but help would be very nice. some of the leaves are turning colors, i thought it might be heat stress so i re-located them to a cooler area. roots look good as well. maybe im just parinoid but i think they should be bigger as well. im using fox farm nutes at 1/4 strength and a tsp of super thrive in a 10 gal res. also i didutehave a ph issue because of my old ph reader and reached 8.1 before as well, could it be nute lock?

    ph: 5.8
    temp: 81* F
    res temp: 73*
    hum: about 40%
    ppm: 400
    lights: 5 x 26 watt cfls
    2 x 48 watt cfls
    1 x 150 watt HPS
    any help would be great!

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    so here are some new pics. there are some 2700k lights on so what looks like yellowing is only the lights. i also have a new Deep Water Culture setup ready to make some germinating beans a new home.

    new beans:
    bagseeds:
    1 x Hawaiian snow
    2 x GDP

    coop bought seeds:
    3 x big bud

    all have cracked and their wieners are showing. lol as soon as they have a good root system going, into the hydro!

    nutes:
    all 1/4 strength: fox farms grow big
    shultz plant food and
    superthrive
    others: mad farmers ph up and down

    ok so here are some pics:

    ^the set up w/o the doors on the left side is the new bubbler and more lights including a HPS

    ^doesnt it look like it has female pistils allready hehehe

    ^same plant it should have another set of leaves but i had to trim them

    ^poor little guy hasnt recoverd fully yet also had to trim her as well

    ^shes looking good!

    ^looking healthy!

    ^little lengthy but nothing to worry about

    ^new growth is looking healthy but old growths kinda sad

    ^also a little scrawny and hasnt recoverd from the ph setback. i dont think she'll make it so i'll play with her a bit. i already have one ready to replace her if she dies so im not worried.

    looking alot better than before i think they are liking the nutes and the correct ph level hehehe. the big bud beans i bought from a co-op for $20 for 12 but they actually give you 13 for good karma as they said. what do you all think?

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    so here i am again but with porn!!i have a few questions (i might be just paranoid lol) but ill get to that later. first order of business is they are moving right along a little slower than i anticipated but nevertheless there growing. the new growth is a bit light green but i think its a nitrogen def. so i fed them a little and i have the next rez water conditioned and waiting cuz ill probly change the rez cuz the ph has been fluctuating to much.i dont like having to much up or down chemicals in the rez. im starting to get a hang of the whole ph thing but the feeding im not to sure of. how much how little not at all or what? im currently at 1/4 strength but i think thats why there turning yellow, not enough food. so i might go to 1/2 strength. when you look at the photos remember that there should be another set of leaves on most of them but i had to trim them cuz of an earlier ph episode. another thing is they are very short. they are on their 4th or 5th node and there not more than an inch inch and a half tall? something tells me thats not right. i use ro water from the water vendor things, which also send them through several other types of filters like an activated charcoal filter, chlorination filter and an uv light filter. the ph in the bottle before anything was added was 7.0 on the dot so it is very neutral. after food and everything i have it at 5.7. im rambling on to the porn:






    ^same plant as previous











    well i hope that wasnt two many at once lol. what do you guys think about the spots, color, and growth rate? any suggestions?

    i know have 4 big budd seads germing right now that will get there own bubbler. might go with a ScrOG grow with them. also still have the Hawaiian snow and grand daddy purple beans as well which will find their home in a few days. i transplanted one into a pot with soil cuz she wasnt happy. her sister is the same if not yellower. shes probly coming out soon as well. i think those were the kool aid beans cuz they are very similar in shape size and growth rate.

    well you are officially updated.
    peace, one love, and good day

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    it is my absolute favorite. the guys at the co-op were telling me that its a once a year kinda strain but somehow they got more. its pretty much all their favorites as well. they dont get much and it goes fast. if i could muster up the will power to can a few buds and give them to ya when you get here... but thats like walking on water, you just cant do it unless your a god. i wish i could share this with everyone.

    anyways back to the babies. i changed their water this morning and they are loving it. i think my diagnosis was right about the nutes being to low cuz i bumped up to 1/2 strength and their leaves are straight as an arrow. ill get some pics up tonight before they hit the sack. the yellowing on the new leaves is disappearing and it looks good. there was a little accident and something dropped on one.the good news is she is doing fine, the bad news is when it fell on her it messed up the new leaves in the center. so i said what the hell i didnt buy the beans, ill try my hand at topping. i clipped her and well...shes great! you can tell that she doesnt really care about her hair cut cuz the place i clipped looks to be healed allready and the two leaves there are taking over. didnt slow her a bit. if anything shes growing faster.

    anyways pics will be up in a bit gotta charge the battery.

    Re: Deep Water Culture diy with 10 plants

    ok so this is what happened,
    i woke up this morning and checked on them. they were looking good but unhappy. i checked everything and the ph was low so i adjusted and went on my way. i was gone for a few hours and when i got home i checked on them and omg it is bad :( the ph was again high while i was freaking out the wife asked whats wrong. i explained and she told me to relax. How?! well my marine training kicked in and....... ROFL fuck no, it was just the bwanana lol. that shit is so good for anxiety. and i realized that it was nute burn. so i went and got some fresh RO water and did a flush with no nutes. once they start looking better ill add a little bit of food. dah right. it took a nice bowl to realize that. im so much more cognitive when im medicated. ive replanted another in soil just cuz it was so tiny still that it couldnt handle the small amounts of nutes i was giving them they couldnt handle so i took them out. ive got some new ones for there germing right now. i noticed the lights were probly a little to low so i pulled em up a bit as well. so here they are and pray to shiva that they pull through this, or just for em to get healthy. Oh yeah i forgot to turn all the warm bulbs and hps off so there is some orange lights.


    ^so this is right after the rez change so i still had to clean it up a bit.all right the next few are cropped to just the plant so you can see them better.

    ^this one isnt as bad as the other

    ^so shes probly the most healthy out of the lot

    ^same plant but you can see the beginning of nute burn with the little spots

    ^so this is or was the healthiest. now shes supper sad :(

    ^she too was one of the healthiest put now very sad

    ^her fan leaves were getting pretty bad so i trimmed them off but she doest look to be bothered by it really.

    ^this is the first to be transplanted into soil and shes looking better her green seems to be coming back

    ^she is looking alot better as well and i assure you those are nut bugz its just dirt that wont come off when sprayed. shes also looking more like a sativa right that could explain why her and her sister are both about the same size cuz i know two or three of my beans were a sativa strain. anyways ,
    do you think i should leave the lights on tonight to help re-energize them?i dont understand about the nute burn cuz a few hours after i bumped it up to half strength they were as happy as can be with real vigorous growth. i just dont get it.
    any comments would help
