    Re: Recirculating Nutrient Schedule

    Plants that are well established in soil going to DWC? I guess it could be done, but there would definitely be some major adaptation that would have to occur! Last time I saw them, they looked good where they were. Why not leave them?

    Yeah, probably will. I think they may go into shock if I try.
    I'll just get new seeds/or clones.
    Lesson learned and next time will be a lot better when starting right away in dwc rather than soil

    Thanks again

    Recirculating Nutrient Schedule

    Decided to take everything DWC out of the tent and put the plants in soil into the tent for now to switch them over to flower. Going to leave them both outside for a few more days or a week then get them into the tent.

    Transplanted the biggest plant into a better planter cause it was in a wooden planter box.
    I don't think she really liked me doing that cause now she is looking sad. I sure hope she bounces back, gave her some new fresh soil and nutrients.
    Fingers crossed.

    (Photo taken 1 hour after transplant)


    Here is the before

    Try putting her in the shade until she recovers. To much light will make her wilt.

    thanks. she bounced back and is looking good.
    I decided to transplant it again into some fabric pots and some coco/perlite mix and is looking really good

    I plan on adding a drip ring system to each plant and was wondering if the 250gph pump I have will be too much pressure for two drip rings? (with 1/2" tubing)

    A tiny little aquarium pump with 1/4" tubing would be adequate for a drip system for a couple of plants.

    Glad she bounced back.

    yeah, I think i'll grab a small pump off amazon, the 250 was what I was using in the rdwc.

    thanks

    Some small pumps have inlet throttles that enable you to limit the flow... just a thought.

    Re: Recirculating Nutrient Schedule

    i just looked at the one I have and it's a submersible/ inline pump. i was using it as an inline but I did just look in the box and there is a flow control.

    I think I might be able to get it to work. guess we will see how it works.

    does anyone have a watering schedule they like to follow when using a drip system in coco? eg. water twice a day for 2 hours or something?

    plants are still in veg but will be transitioning either tomorrow or Friday

    Just for reference, for my first coco grow I'm hand watering one liter of 500 PPM nutes to my Dwarf Low Flyer in 2 gallon air pot every morning, which gives me about 200 ml of runoff at about 310 PPM.

    The advice I'm getting is that most people water/feed an established coco plant at least once a day to get the full benefits of using coco (i.e. don't let it dry out like with soil because wet coco retains lots of air so doesn't suffocate the plant), and that if/when the pot fills up with roots, water two or even three times a day.

    I think getting the nutrient level right is the critical thing, so the plant is getting enough nutrients without getting overloaded.

    If you're interested, I'm tracking my pursuit of the best coco feeding process in my grow log, "Growing a dwarf on my deck in coco coir and a homemade air pot".
