Heya afn peeps, we are at it again this morning. Ive done gone and did a thing.... I have decided to get my feet wet(hehe) and try out a lil hydro grow. This will be that first boring deets post, then itll be off to the races(i hope). Lights or outdoor: Lights- a combo of 150w qbs and 65w autocob Room/Tent size: 4x2x6' tent Ferts or no ferts: Ferts- mc, sc, be from greenleaf, recharge, hydroguard, and calmag as necessary Medium-5 gallon bubblebucket, 10" rhyzocore netpot, airpump, stones, etc. Pest control- im runnin this in a tent with a soil grow so i do have a couple products on hand, insecticidal soap for immediate killin, neem oil for long term protection. Probably wont need the di-earth lol. Seed- im running one of @Magic mystery strains, until corrected ill be referring to it as Mystery 1. Im following a journal by trailanimal and hes got one of the mystery strains going, its purple. I luv it so much lol, would luv to have a purple plant in muh tent. Additional setup- i bubbled 4 gallons of tapwater for 48 hours, set ph at 5.9 then added nutes, this is for the 1st rez fill. I will be refilling the rez as needed with bubbled water and i am planning on trying this run with as few rez changes as possible. Philosophically speaking im wanting to take the "dirty water culture" approach so i wont be running sterile, will be tossing in bennies, and generally will try to let the plant do all the talking. 1st solution is some ratio of megacrop and sweet candy. Ill add recharge to the rez maybe in the next week. Ill probably start adding in calmag and be during preflower, assuming we make it even that far lol. Last but certainly not least, i think im gonna skip tags for the time being, i wanna see what sorta traffic this gets organically, BUT, i wouldnt have even gotten this far without the help of yall afn peeps. Great info and better people here in afn! Having said that i do wanna quietly shout out to my unofficial support team lol, they might not know it yet but theyve been drafted! Boradan, Frenjamin Banklin, MissUniverse, and Wawashell. These 4 have endured a bunch of questions and have gently pointed me in the right direction in regards to all things hydro. If anyone stumbles past this, ill be editing it throughout the day and will open it up for comments later! Edit- we are open for business!
