hey aerojunky early on you mentioned you were mixing your own salts this is my goal as well, would you mind posting you veg and bloom recipes and giving a noob some pointers.
Holy crap I think this thread melted half of my brain. big props to all you guys for this plethora of information. I currently use a LPA setup I built, but after all this info I am going to join the ranks of AA after my current grow finishes. I probably wont be around much but again I would like to thank you all for this thread.
now I am off to read True HP Aero For 2011 <-- That's gonna hurt...259 pages.
so i have been debating with felow aroe growers i grow in gh aroe but they say its just a deep water cuture with the laser lines so i took out some of my old chambers and seen that multiponic sytem and to realy debate it i realy cant because i nevor tired the aroe misters with a timer i will run it first then do the fog to see and compare.. but i will be going over all your info hears my pic. of the new aroe mister asemblynew aroe.jpeg
that kind of chamber is exactly what you dont want for true hp aeroponics. its way to shallow and when your roots hit the bottom they form a mat that the fine mist isnt able to penetrate.
on the top of the root stucture you have the right amount of mist. and on the bottom your roots are not being hydrated properly and consistently, due to the mist not being able to reach them.
what you want for hp aero is a large deep chamber so that the roots can hang freely and recieve an even misting saturated in dissolved oxygen.
good idea im gona have to talk to plastic company and i did.. they sead i need to pay about 20 thousand dollars to make an injection mold??? and they can weld plastic but they want like 400 per chainber.. wow thats way out of my ball park, also i have grown in this for like three years already i love these chanbers the only problem the way we do it the roots sometimes fill only leaving about a half inch of the top holes sometimes flooding them many times i come in and the fucken water is on the floor.. i was thinking a lil bit wider and like you sead mabe deeper.. but im gona try its its only an experiment.. let see what happends
Oxanaca is correct and here's why. These roots are < 4 weeks old, much bigger than the plants at this stage. Root chamber is a 33G storage tote. 2 weeks later plants are in a growth spurt, roots are ~ 20" long X 3"+ diameter. These would choke your fence post- not even good for NFT
Once they hit puberty (early flowering) the root diameter will increase dramatically to accommodate the soon to be bud sights.
Last Grow near harvest- same container, same strain. Probably should have reduced down to 2 plants max as the other roots get in the way of the atomized mist from swirling correctly throughout the chamber
Thump You can build a chamber inexpensively. Lowes/HD sells insulated 4 X 8 sheets, one side has reflector material, in various R values (@ ~ $24). They will even cut it for you. Some tape/glue and you're done.
