Hello there Looking for some advice please. I am about to start my third hydro grow in a Wilma 8 pot system bought in 2011. Previously and pretty successfully I had followed a feed chart in the Growell catalogue. This time round and following reading a couple of articles on importance of staying on top of EC I have made a rather impulsive purchase of a Bluelab Truncheon, however back home and ‘out of the box’, I have a couple of questions… Firstly, the Wilma involves completely weekly reservoir change. Following a daily EC reading is it basically a case of adjusting basic nutrients (Samurai G&B in this case) or water in the reservoir as necessary, or would other aspects of the feed regime need adjusting maybe daily? Secondly, particularly into flowering, moving plants off the top of the reservoir for water/ nutes etc is highly disruptive once a week let alone throughout the week, assuming a daily EC check and necessary adjustments of water and nutes, is it usually possible to manage all this through the small(ish) hole where the dripper pipe feeds into the reservoir or will plants need to be moved around more than usual within the usual weekly res change? Basically, how do you guys using a Wilma get on with using EC wands like Bluelab and managing nutrients thereafter? Obviously, I want the best for the plants and would like to understand this technology but is it practical for use with my old Wilma or should I just stick with the feed chart? Any thoughts much appreciated! YP
Hi folks- it's been a while since I posted last..was looking for some advice.. has anyone used a bluelabs dosetronic system? I'm getting one as I need to go away and leave my grow from time to time and the hassles of getting someone to look after my girls vs an automated system has finally made it worth while. I'm just wondering wether to get a solenoid system or paying the extra for a peridoser kit... I have 24 plants growing in three flood n drain trays so I'd come in as a 'hobby grower' but would rather pay the extra if it meant more reliability. Thanks in advance for any advice - cheers peers x
