liquid silicon instead of ph up,  hydrogen peroxide food grade 12 percent for cleaning unless you have a license if so get the 35 percent, ph pen, ec wand, if you can afford go with bluelab, will save you money in time, I started like you buying cheapos in the beginning but upgraded eventually, nutes all I seem to use now is canna but plenty of others, been buying from ebay, and amazon, all over as it happens all in the uk , filters I use rhinos you will need at least 1 digital thermometer hygrometer humidity meter, fans as youre in a tent maybes the clip on ones,   I'm sure others will point out things  good luck,

Fuck the clay balls off, get ecothrive Coco in there instead, use growers ark nutes & prepare to be amazed.

Yes,an extraction filter mated to your extraction fan,it 'scrubs'/cleans the air that passes through it so there won't be any cannabis smell where you vent.

Really?...   I would say completely the opposite..   I fucked the coco off...  Its messy, harbours pests and needs to be replaced.

 

Balls are clean and easy to handle (ooo er that sounds rude), can be re used over and over again, and nowhere for pests to hide.

Had a go of clay balls once, made the mistake of hand watering small clones with not much root system, had to add quite a bit of rockwool which helped establish the plants. I don't use auto watering so you had to really water once a day at least. Roots eventually made it to the bowls pots sat in and ended up a good crop.

 

I used Ionic but it was a while ago so do not know if its just as good these days.

 

One use for clay balls is to cover up soil pots. A layer on top stops the water evaporating and keeps the soil nice and dark like it is in nature. Helps water spread evenly and not just down the sides if your on a wet and dry cycle.

 

If you grow in clay balls, it saves a fortune as no replacing soil, nothing gets thrown out.

 

I'm committed to soil and organics but could squeeze a hydro in there just for the experience.

"Coco has the opposite effect, withdrawing certain elements from the nutrient solution. If a recirculating nutrient is used in combination with this substrate, it will result in a nutrient deficiency. Clay, perlite and rock wool are examples of inert substrates. These substrates do not contain any nutrients, nor do they withdraw them from the nutrient solution."

 

Really? Never heard of that, I just thought you had to add calmag (along with usual feeding regime) with coco...?
