Hempy Write UP

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

stupid question,is a tall bucket better than a short fat one ?
say a standard 5 gallon bucket and the other half as tall but wider,both 5 gallon size.
does it matter growing hempy style ?

Can't answer your question directly, but vertical grow space might influence your decision.

Yeah i know about grow space.
Just trying to fiqure out if it matters as far as root growth and if it would effect overall growth.
I doubt it matters but a lower bucket will get the roots down quicker then spread but in a hempy, not sure if thatsa good thing

anyone still doing hempy? any on autos? would love to chat!

here are some pics of recent photoperiod plants (3 in 700 ml and 1 in 1000ml containers), one auto in a 7Lt container, and a basil and a chamomile in 1Lt containers... all these coco Hempy buckets. Had weak nutes at the beginning but now will be giving Mega Crop. All under a single 65 watt 3500k autocob.
