Well it had to come to this eventually. I have decided and implemented a new ebb/flow system and am now retiring my diy system that has allowed me to medicate myself for years now.
The main reasons I am changing is two fold. 1 - I have taken on 2 patients now and require a larger output and 2 - ease of use, now that I am dealing with health issues, my set up need to be accommodating to my needs.
So, sadly shit this has to go:
Now Im hoping that I will be able to dial the new system and at least produce similar.
My new set up will not have the plant count but with my past experiences with big girls I can only see an increase in quantity with less plants. Im hoping.
My thought are 1 plant will replace 4 plants with the same results, or better
Here is 4 girls planted, they are now being replaced with a single in the hopes she will produce equal or more of the same quality.
These trays have consitantly produced 400-500g per tray under a 400watter and 500-600g per tray in my perpetual system. This tray weighs out to 2595g. wet, at 75% loss it should work out to 650g. or so. One of the best trays to date:
I built this system for a closet grow and it out performed anything I used in the past. The main problem is the size of container. One or two of these containers is fine but when you run 10-12 they seem to be a bit large and require huge amounts of water on the ready to fill and drain. I had 7 reservoirs going and I could not keep up. The new trays I will be using are only a quarter the size, so I am expanding but only gonna have 2 reservoirs now.
A 3 day water schedule for this!
So if your needing a simple system and you grow in a confined space, you really need to look this over. The track record proves its a winner for small spaces.
I will be doing an update on the new system when I finally get rolling.
So, On another note, Ya all can see the curl on the leaves? Im thinking my humidity has been to low? Does it look like low humidity to you people? Its not lights and its not my nutes.
Any question feel free to PM me or just post.
Sad to see ya go!
