Hey man, lot's of luck with your grow man. Hey, that unit your using looks like a commercial unit. What is it? Looks almost like a Botanicare aeroponic unit. Am I right?rebelwithoutacause said:They are all white widow and are 3 weeks into veg.. I got the seeds from buy dutch seeds. This is my first grow.
I thought so. Are you using distilled water? What type of pump? Nutes?rebelwithoutacause said:Yeah it's an aero 6.
Hey, sounds good to me. Keep an eye on those heads. Are you going to flower with the flo's?rebelwithoutacause said:I'm using an 8 bulb tek-light (440 watts-flourescents) i've got a strong fan blowing on the plants so i've got the light about an inch from the tops of them. I'm using hollands secret nutes. It's an 85 gph pump. I haven't had any trouble with the sprayers clogging yet! I'm using tap water.
If you're going to let those plants get to 20 inches or so, you'll need two of those 250 HPS. I've used flo's to flower one time and I was disappointed in the results. I got about half what I was expecting and the buds were all underdeveloped looking. Potency was down as well. Clones from that crop were grown under HPS for the entire grow and they did twice as well.rebelwithoutacause said:yeah i'm gonna put hps simulated bulbs in my flo fixture.
Hey, the 1K light would drastically improve your crop, but safety is a primary concern. You're correct in being concerned about the heat at plant level. Put your light over a non-reflecting, non-flammable surface at about 3 feet high. Take the temperature of the area directly beneath it. This temperature should not exceed 85 degrees F. Raise or lower the light until you reach this temperature consistently. This is the height you should never go beneath.rebelwithoutacause said:I have a 1000watt hps i could use. Do you think i would be safe to use that and just exhaust it out into the room outside my g.r? I don't know if that would give off a heat signature or something. How far above tops should i put it? My friend moved off to college and gave me all his stuff so i just sortof got thrown into all this, but i'm not complaining.
