Another go! Autopots/megacrop

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

I'm about to try a modification. I'm going to install 3 more filter taps in the res and run a single line from the res to each pot. Than eliminates having one or more fittings in the lines between the res and the pots. The fitting are the choke point and also the point where clogs form. all you will need after that is a short piece of tubing and a 30 ml syringe to flush a clog if you get one, at the valve. You can then also back flush the line to the res, in case the clog forms at the tap, although that only seems to happen if you let the res run too low...... If you need to shut off flow to a pot, pinch the tubing closed with a bag clip. I get them at the dollar store, handy for lots of uses!
The worst thing I've done was to use those little shutoff valves, they clog just looking at them.......

Just got the syringe to clean the lines. I ended up making a manifold for my lines and I think that should help with even flow and be easy to clean a clog
The line I’m holding is the one from the res, the rest go to the pots

Day 28 for my photos and cosmic queens, day 25 for forgotten cookies. They’re all showing sex as of a few days ago. Did some tying and trimming on all of them twice, can barely tell. Feed/temp is still the same as before

Here’s the 3 best CQ. The top one seems to be the only different pheno, slightly stretchy/lanky while the others are are more compact ish.

Forgotten cookies are bottom 2. Got a pretty squat CQ on top.

Almost out of co2 and the store I refill at is closed until the 3rd, but I’m leaving for 5 days on the 2nd so I gotta figure how to dial my tent in in the meantime. Much easier for me to run a “sealed” tent since the room has no windows and nowhere for me to vent anything out.

My photo plants are coming along nicely. Normally I think I would’ve topped again already but I’m trying to delay this as much as I can until my autos aredone. May end up training these for 16 colas each

Do you water every day? And how much run off? How do you dose your autos? I am running promix hp cc and am trying to figure out how to water it.
