In a DWC, the air pump runs 24/7. The net pots are just barely submerged in the water and only until you have good root growth out the bottoms of the net pots and then the water level is dropped. I change the water every 7-10 days, depending on how much the girls are drinking up.
I run a perpetual harvest and have different strains in different stages of growth in my flowering room at all times. I raise or lower the buckets to keep an even canopy. I also often mix nute solutions of different strengths for different strains. Individual buckets (or maybe 2 of the same strain in a 10 gal tote) is really the only way for me to go with the way I grow. Each set up is individual and needs to suit the grower's style.
For sure THG.
Not to high jack the thread. But May i ask THG.
How do you control the canapea height, when say you have 2-4 Plants in 1 tote?
so i dont high jack, could you possible post a link or 2 of how you work that?
figured i'd attach a pic of the veg room. these are 3 weeks from cracking there shells.
If I put 2 plants in a tote (I personally never put 4 in one tote), they are the same strain from the same mother and are smaller growing strains. I use other buckets and milk crates to raise buckets and totes that need to be raised to maintain an even canopy.
