Nice to see more hydro people lately. They look great.
I wouldn’t mind trying it but it looks to complicated.
Yup those ladies look very happy and healthy. Great work. Insane how hydro speeds them up
That is what I thought but I got bubble bros buckets, advanced nutrients changed weekly and R.O. water is the best. I look at people who grow in dirt and they take forever. I got seed to bud in 100 days in my last grow. 6 plants over 1.5 lbs dried.
is it possible for you to provide a buy list if i want to switch from soil to dwc?
1 5 gal black bucket
1 medium airstone
1 aquarium air pump
5’ clear or blue aquarium air hose
1 bucket top net pot " I like the 8in."
Hydroton to fill netpot
A good cheap line of nutes
Everyone here will make it workout for you
Check my journal I kind of walk through it
Gorilla Glue #4 from dead to filling a 4X6 tent for over 1 LB in 100 days or less in a race with a Durban Poison Autoflower clown_face
@boardsbird beat me to it. DWC is pretty simple. But if you have multiple plants it will be hard to get to the back ones. But it’s a cheap way to test it out. And it’s upgradeable to RDWC if you choose to.
Theres something to be said about never worrying about bug’s “filtered outside air intake”
And the nutes no harder to mix than making a modern day mixed drink for a uppity 21 year old girl
Lmao. Yall making great points. But im still team soil for now. Maybe next year
Comon just throw a bubble-bucket in with your soil plants, they wont know until they get shaded by the DWC plant
Hahahaha. Nah. I cant invest more like that. My next bubble bucket is for teas. Im im the ground next year. But yea. Spring. Ill make sure you help me with some next level shiznit
i feel like it would be easier to control ph in a dwc. is dwc deceptive? it seems easy.
also whats rdwc
RDWC is recirculating deep water culture. I’ll show you my room as an example. The tote with the yellow lid is a reservoir. The white pvc pipes keep all 3 totes balanced while the bigger black line pumps water out of the reservoir to the 2 with plants. It makes it where water is moved between the 3 regularly. And of course air lines to each for air stones just like regular DWC.
whats the advantage of recirculating the water? does it provide more volume and keep nutes and temperatures more balanced?
could i get a similar effect by pumping water from the bottom of the dwc and top feeding?
More evaporation and it salts your media up. You’d be better off spraying the roots
so id hook the spray nozzle to the line from the water pump and have it spray on the hydroton? seems like i should have four sprayers for coverage. do sprayers get clogged?
What he said, I got bubble bros they have special baskets in the middle for starting seedlings. I realized that you get better control with dwc and less bugs too.
Complicated it isn’t, it’s really simple. Buckets, add medium for plant to grow on, I use the fired clay pellets, add large air pump , bubble stone. Use good water, preferably R.O. add nutrients. The key is to watch the ph and nutrients ppm. Plants like 5.8 ph so keep them happy and healthy, they go nuts very fast. I plan to 12/12 them October 30 , just 4 weeks after seed.
