I'm hoping you can help me. I'm trying to decide the best system for me and am stuck. I definitely want to go hydro having only ever done soil before. I've got a 1.2m x 2.4 tent and intitally I had thought autopot would be the way to go but after lots of research I'm leaning towards either 4 of the Oxypot XL (2 in each half of the tent) or going for a 4 pot R-DWC system (although there is the temptation to go for the 8 pot version and take some pots out if it' s too much?). I'm looking at getting either of these set ups from growell as I've got all my other bits there. The guy at the shop has suggested the 4 pot R-DWC system and the only thing that' s making me think twice is that the pots are 19litre oxypots. Compared with the Oxypot XL which has a 70 litre tank/pot, it seems small. I will be most likely sticking to 4 plants with a small possbility of doing a maximum of 8. I guess my natural instinct is with the 19 litre pots on the R-DWC I may need to do about 6 plants in my grow space and if i tried to scrog it with only 4 19litre pots, it would take ages? So would need the extra 2 pots to speed things up. Is this about right? Whereas I'm imagining with the 4 Oxypot XLs, the plants would be able to grow bigger roots and therefore get better yield and quality. It' s obviously a bit of a pain in the a** to fill up the 4 oxypot chambers instead of the 1 reservoir but I'm imagining it not being too difficult if I've cleared the lower branches as I could just get under my net to get access. 1 other issue regarding the Oxypot XLs is I'm not sure how to flush them weekly. Do i just get a pump and a bucket and access one of the sides of the pot? Is this quick and easy? I'm reasonably confident of controlling the environment and will buy a nutrient chiller. I've looked at the hailea models which look good. I believe they can be used in either a reservoir or with the 4 oxypot XLs? And also will need a nutrient heater/s. On a slight tangent, I've already ordered the autopot system from a shop but I haven't picked it up yet so I'll need to be relatively quick as I want to exchange it. On another slight tangent, I've also thought of the potential to connect the 4 oxypot XLs And turn it into a big R-DWC system? But I'm not that handy, although I do have a toolbox so may need help from my brother if it went that route. And I don't want to mess it up. Anyway guys, that's enough. I know some of the questions may be a bit noob but I don't want to buy the wrong system (which I think I already did with the autopot). Thanks,
High guys! I am a complete newb here! I have only ever had one grow a few years ago, after moving to a new apartment I decided to build a stealth grow box, took me a couple of days to get all set up and planted, I started to lst at week 3. I am growing 2 sweet tooth auto's, using; Straight up coco, (never thought of a pertile mix until it was too late), 3 20w warm white CFL's ( these were added after pictures were taken), 1 85w daylight CFL, Not sure of pot size, 1 pc fan ( cool air intake), 1 small pc fan ( warm air exhaust). Please please leave any suggestions or ideas you think may help me out.
Hi Guys, This is the second time grow as last years I starter way to late. This year I started with 4 x purple maroc ferm, 3 died and one has rocketed up. It is in a small plant pot *not in the ground* at the moment and it is around 9-10 inches tall. when should i change the pot or should i put it in the ground without the pot or can i grow it in a bigger pot all together? it is in a portable greenhouse in a good area for the sunlight *when are purple marocs ready to go outside without any shelter or greenhouse? * is it a good 9-10 inches tall the size of a 380ml lucozade bottle if that makes it easier* for the last 2 weeks it hasnt really grown alot its stopped? but growing at the top rather than stem, could this to be with that it needs a bigger pot for the roots to grow? anyone got any tips for purple maroc? and how to stop pests as i checked her recently and their was orange sploshes doted around the plant! started mid april also what fert can i use and when should i use it thankyou for your help guys
