[SIZE="4"][B]I want to see if I can grow smaller plants with big buds. [/SIZE][/B]
[SIZE="3"]I started my plants out as clones and let them grow about a 1ft tall before I started the flowering stage.
At this point the 1st group didn't grow so well but I didn't feed as often and I should have.
The 2nd group I was a little more aggressive with the nutes.
I have been reading all kinds of (stuff?) off the Internet, lots of people doing different things, some has done me good and some has not. So for what it's worth here is what I,m doing.[/SIZE]
[SIZE="3"]Ok so here we go this is where I'm at.
I started about six moths ago, with an aero garden and two seeds, The 1st two plants that I grew I cloned into 8plants, them flowered the 1st two and got rid of the males and
grew 4 female . It's was then that I decided to purchased 2 tents 20x36x60 some cfls and one 150w .
I have built 2reservors out of 18gal totes 1 w/ 10 -3" pots & 1 w/ 8- 3" pots. I 1st used some clear plastic tubing to direct water to each pot, I have been using rapid root 1 1/2" plugs and clay beads. I have vent set up with temp controls and a small fan for circulation I have a pump adding o2the the water, I have a pump on a timer that waters them for 5mins per hr. I'm in the process of setting up a system to be able to drain and fill the reservoirs easily.
I have also started a 3rd tent, my plans is to have 4 plants to clone from in the veg stage, and the 2 other tents in the flowering stage.
I need to figure a way to keep my reservoirs cooler as well as the tents. everything is vent to the outside but need to introduce cooler air from some where other than the Rm they live in. The one I have going now are doing well but I have been all over the place with the nutes. I was trying to figure out the lucus formula.
