It's a fuct world
Nice to meet you Al(l) I know that star of this post, maybe even of all forum got a family problems. I wish you and your family the best.
It is my first post but i have a little bit (really little) expirience with growing tomatoes,but not with hydro and perpetual.
Al you've inspired me. Im trying to copy yours OP in this same scale. I've already studied almost half of your posts and i got some notes. Anybody has something to add? Am I forgot about something? Al, I count on your answer while you can do that
That is my think-tank:
I also think about replace inside ionizer with carbon filter (what size? and what size of blower? L1 750 m³/h 200mm 8" will be ok?)Code:Motherz -Tray can be 250x800 , rockwool floc 50mm flood 1x day -Plants grown from seed need 6-8 weeks to sexual maturity. -400 HPS , 24 hrs -Canna Aqua Vega, 1400ppm, 5.8, also H2O2 every 3-4days (50l tank) -‘Tip’ some growth to force division just after bringing it from clonebox. Do it for first 3 weeks, afther that - they are ready for taking cuttings. Take 15 days to re-grow-so 4-5 Momz need are really 8-10, (4-5 replacements) -After 3-4 parts of cuttings (each part 30cuttings ;about 2 mos worth) discard and replace, ready in about 2 weeks. -exhaust blower 250CFM Clonez -RW mini cubes 40mm?? flood 2x/day to 1/3 of cube for 2-3 sec (once flooded should keep 1/4-1/3 of water after 24h) -Rooting takes 10-12 days -No grow nutes added to clone watering mixture. -pH correct with phosphoric acid 'pHDown' to 5.8 and add 10ml 50% grade H2O2 per 10L of clone watering sol. -FLUOROS 4*24W 10-12 days, then put in BLOOM -24 hr light EXCEPT for 1st cutting (1 night dark, next few 18/6) -small desktop fan -heating mat Flower Every tray is 900x900 (820x820mm -inside), pots 175mm(4l) Fytocell with 50mm med packed rockwool in the bottom , 23-24 plants, flood to 150mm 2x/day (light on) All flowering tanks: -get Canna Aqua Flores, 1000-1100ppm @ 5.8 (125L tank , 5l/plant). -get dosed with H2O2, 50% grade @ 1ml/litre every 3-4 days to control pathogens. -1000 HPS @ 12/12 -tray 2 is for week 2-4 (TRIM time!-once at the end of week 2 and 4) -after every 2 weeks put shortest plants nearest light -oscillating circ fans in every corner of the flowering area -sulfur burner. 2x/day for 8 minutes during lights off. It runs about an hour after lights-off and about an hour before lights-on -exhaust blower >600CFM with thermostat -intake blower 250CFM Clean trays and rez every 2 weeks min. 7' tall x 8' wide x 9' long space needed Don't overwater nor overfertilize, keep your room at 24-26C @ 30-50% RH and a fluorsescent UV ioniser (with light trap) which runs 30min on/30min off all hours- keeps scent and mould well in check. A second ioniser in the area outside the room istelf guarantees no stray scents escape. cooltubes with adjust-a-wings
From where to take fresh air(except windows)?
If i got a space, then a little of veg (1-2weeks) will increase yieald either like Al said can do nothing because without veg it better suits to HPS light pattern?
Thanks in advance,
