Right now I've put 10 clones just over a foot tall in the right hand side of the wilma as the left side of 10 is finishing off so they share the same res so i cant flush in plain water as i would when I used to grow in coco and soil.

lol I'm still to pussy to put up pics, are they not traceable? 

 

nearly everything on the net is traceable with or without a vpn  and remember you may well have a build up of salts and other nasties in the res now off the old nutes  remember a plant has to dump that excess shit out from its roots somewhere :smokin:

lol gunna have to put an extra layer of tinfoil on me hat now. 

I do partially flush the res ever 1 -2 weeks about half the 150l gets dumped and replenished with fresh water and nutes to try keep her clean and maintain the EC, recently dropped the EC from what canna say on their charts.

Also can defiantly confirm the 315w Phillips defiantly flowers quicker.....that or the extra 115w haha

Oh and it penetrates like Ron Jeremy on viagra, dimmed the hps to 400w to keep heat Down with the 315w CMH running along side and the lights getting right through the messy canopy happy days :-)

You would be better off with two 10 pot wilmas. uk420 removes data from pics on a 'regular' basis. I'm not sure how 'regular'. Daily,weekly,monthly? You can remove your own data before uploading here. If the pic is on your pc/laptop,open pic. Right click it. Hit 'properties'. Hit 'details'. Hit 'remove properties and personal details'. A box will appear. You can either 'check', 'create a copy with all possible properties removed', or, 'remove the following properties from this file' ( you have to 'check' individual properties for removal). This works for me on windows7.

I went with the 20 pot to keep costs down, I currently have a circulating pump that draws from the lowest point of the wilma to an external header tank which drains back to the wilma at 2 diffrent points so the waters always moving as well as the drippers pump If I had the two 10 systems I'd have to double every thing but I think individual 10 pots would be easier to keep on top of flushing and EC. 

I'll try with the pics many thanks :-D

if youre at the end of your grow as stated previously drop that ec  further 1.2 is not a flush stage imho get it at roughly tap water then after grow finished just change nutes easy as that photos would be easier in a perpetual grow or any grow photos would help a lot more :smokin:

I took your advice and dropped the full tanks and flushed with plain tap water, interestingly the EC went up the following day so I repeated the flush couple of times.

Just trying to remove data so I can get some pics up bud

Cant seem to get properties on my phone, interestingly though it has tags of flower and water fall on most them so I'll be going to the cave with more tinfoil hats soon lol

Oh without a doubt mate that's why I went to hydro to try and improve my grow, after this next row of 10 is done think I'll go to filling the 20 pots and doing full grow right through with a flush like I did in coco and soil.

........might just have to get another wilma to run seperate for more regular supply haha.

Thanks for your help matey much apriciated

I was wondering how long it would take.............:rofl:

 

I've always grown hydro and not only is it nigh on impossible to stage plants properly using one res but mixed strains don't really work either.

 

My old set up was clones from a G13 plant mother which had a 9 week flowering period, three flood and drain tables in flower, one in veg.

 

This gave me a crop every three weeks..........:yep:

 

good luck bud

Haha I seen a working perpetual grow diary and was really impressed so I tried to mimic it, must admit I'm sold on hydro after a couple of grows with it but it's the flushing bit that's the hold up. 

Can't wait to see what the half flushed buds taste like compared to the fully flushed ones.

So are the 3 flood tables all on seperate resies then bud?

Yes, each table was a self contained unit, one mtr square and held 24 clones, the res is underneath similar to an NFT set up.........

 

The good old days, 'til the door came off...........:police:  :puke:

Ohhhh nothing worse pal! 

Another problem with this perpetual grow in the 20 pot wilma I've found is trying to get the spots out of a finished plant.........Pretty much impossible they've got so tangled !
