Hi all, thought I would showcase how I have fit my RDWC in the new tent. I needed a new one and a few months back noticed BudBox Pro had made there inlet manifold "Hole" larger on the newer tents. After several phone calls and a very helpful growshop chap I decided they would actually be large enough for my RDWC Pro system. The pipework is 4" pipe similar to guttering so it was a bit of a gamble but late last week I finally had a clear enough tent to set it all up. The header pot (below) is tight, but it worked. It sits outside the grow tent meaning not only is ALL the grow tent just grow pots, I dont have to go into the tent to do my water changes. Meaning I don't need to disturb the light cycle with green headlamps in the warmer months. So the manifold comes of the header and through the purpose made hole already there..... And then it splits to the first two grow pots inside the tent. So atm I am waiting on some seeds and clones to decide which goes in. I have my own Dark Glue (GG4 BX3) X (DiscoBiscuit BX3 X DiscoBiscuit) clones in the Aero' Prop' and some of @panik 's Zkittzo in soak. I'm leaning towards the clones going in because although the Zkittzo are all one strain they are from seed and may require some different levels of feeding whereas the clones should be more similar in terms of EC needs. But I will take a punt if the Zkittzo look ready enough before the clones root out enough. Flip of the coin right now. I have some major changes going on in here over the next couple of weeks. I have a new CarboAir Filter going in which I already have. Its one of the CarboAir 100's so only 660mm in length and should fit nicely down the centre of the tent rather than central along the back. Got some rigid ducting for fan and filter connection as well. I also hope to have some new lighting going in. I've decided its time to go to LED and out the HID monsters, so fingers crossed @diyleduk can make me something nice, dude I will be in touch soon, just figuring this all out then I will drop u a PM etc. I also have a 2000L a day RO System ready to go in, I'm working on the logistics of this during this week but my plan is to have a collapsible 300L water butt I found on the net for £30 in the room and have the RO system attached to wall above it. Then the day I need to do a water change I switch it on first thing and by about 2PM it should have given me the 270L of filtered water I need, something I will have to measure and mark on the water butt during the week. Still working out how I get the waste back to the bathroom safely but I think I have a rough plan. Should then just be a case of mixing the nutrients etc to the correct EC and leave it for a night to settle before adjusting PH if needed and then empty old and add clean fresh.... I think... Need to Get a SCROG net in here and I have been looking at those elasticated ones that clip to the tent poles. If anyone uses them and reads this and dont mind dropping a little opinion on how they do I'd be really grateful as I'm on the fence with them from what I see pics of online. Well cheers for reading though if yo managed it. Will do another topic when its all done, hopefully Take it easy all. GV.
Once again Dinafem has taken over the House of Freax for what I'm hoping will be a great show. Im using the Alien F&D system again in the same 5 pot configuration that i used for the Big Kush. Ionic Nutes have worked well for me from the word go so i will be sticking with them and using the Hydro Grow/Bloom and Boost Supplements will be Cal-Mag and Liquid Silicon Rocking the tent this time are: Sweet Deep Grapefruit Shark Attack Dinachem Purple Afghan Kush Amnesia Kush I soaked some Root Riot cubes for about 15 mins gave them a quick gentle squeeze to drain off any excess water then popped in the seeds. Now its time to sit back and wait for them to pop.
Lets get this started by saying big thanks to Dinafem for providing the seeds for this diary. Right now ive got 5 Big Kush seeds in Root Riot cubes which i put in yesterday. Some of them are already starting to show themselves today. As it is at the moment ive got limited access to the internet so i will be updating this as and when i can, but it will be done at least once a week. When theyve all put theyre heads up they will be transferred into my Aerogarden to get them ready for the Alien F&D system they will be going into. They will be grown under a 600w Dual Spec HPS and hopefully ill do them justice. I will get some pics up when there is anything to take pics of, so until then, for those who have not been here before. let me wish you a warm welcome to The House of Freax.
