I selected the best three of each but had a forgetful feed and dried them out...they have now recovered and are in the system. 
 

hand feed initially with formulex I’m now onto a weak house and garden mix 

 

much love

i did wonder about using an aero prop for seeds, but never seen anyone else try it. 

how are they getting on? Are they root it cubes not a bit too wet in there Ken, or have you used this method before?

HAve you just got it running constantly, or off a timer or what?

 

good luck with these mucka.

ive always done it like this....the only problem was getting them established in the 150mm net pot....I had a lid for the X stream with 127mm holes, but it can only hold 4.....so I’m gonna build a little holding DWC box in the prop tent with a 50l really useful box and an x stream delivery tube from a 36 site station. 
 

should link up prop and main system a little smoother 

 

my best to u and urs brother

I put the xstream on when the root breaks through....you can leave it on 24/7 after that.

when doing the net pots I have it timed as I don’t want to drown them.....

 

i did it in pots this time but missed a bloody feed and they dried out.....there back looking fine again and I have a good root structure to start with

cool stuff. 

i made myself a aero prop system with a really useful box, the 36 site sprayer and a mj1000 pump, but with the pump at the right height for cuttings, it passsed water through the sides of the lid and soaked my carpet, ....twice.....bah......

i did think of using a smaller bubbler to start mine off, but like you say the grief of transplanting them to the big system isnt something to look forwards to.

I was hoping to get 6 x 150mm nets in the 50l and run the spray bar down the middle. 
 

didn’t think of run off problems but I see the problem.....the 150mm nets should take the sting out the spray ? Shouldn’t it ? I have a Mj500 out there I think.....I could use that. 
If not it’s back to bastardising an xstream to take it :skin_up:

(I’m very glad to discuss this with u before making another costly mistake lol much love bro)

the one option i did think about using - was to run the aeroponic spray bar at the top of the really usefull box , but have it pointing downwards instead of up. :o

i suppose id have to make up the spray bar for it, but at least my carpets would stay dry lol.

im pretty sure you could do the same thing with the 150 net pots mate, would save bastardising the aero prop.

I need to buy the 127mm hole saw....black useful box and delivery tube for the project......not massive expensive, but I don’t need to be replacing it again straight away....I need this to work first time. 
 

I’ve broke the old x stream....but the really useful box is 10cm shorter....which due to the stupidly powerful LED in there instead of the T5’s height is now a concern lol 

 

if i need a new x stream anyway I may just get a new one (minus pump) and make another lid for it with 127mm holes....i grow concerned the R.U.Box is going to stitch me up lol

Im guilty of doing the same in the past. Too keen to get going and forget to label owt.

 

One of my matchas is really spindly but t'other one is very much more bushy. I know this doesnt help you out any, infact im chin rubbing me sen wondering why im even posting this lol 

 

i can say the spindly one has been topped and looked poop ever since. Not sure if its that particular seed or the topping has pissed it off. But will avoid doing it on the seeds i have remaining. Both have grown well but definitely 2 very different looking things. 

 

Got a follow on this one gonna do a few SBG with some ugorg stuff next go so be interesting to see how they go.

 

Best of luck owd chap :yep:
