big buddah blue cheese grow 2
well, during my first grow i took a number clones from one of the plants that got damaged. these took fine in a diy bubbler but after a month and a half , just before xmas, i noticed mould forming on the roots and they started turning red/brown. so, i took three more cuttings and placed them in my aerogarden. after returning from my xmas week away the cuttings were still alive and a after another week they began to root. i took one clone and placed it in my diy bubber under the 2 125watt cfls on a 12/12 cycle on the 6 Jan. the other two clones are still in the aerogarden going well on aerogarden nutes and the clone in flower is on max strength Optimum Bloom nutes.
Pics of the bubbler used in this grow shortly.

nice a 2nd one, ill be paying attention sir.
omfg damn brown algae... i pulled the clone from flower and stuck it back in the aerogarden. the diy bubbler and components was then soaked in bleach and the the tub was further light proofed. i've taken one of the other clones and that is now in the diy bubbler with just ph'd water, no nutes.

i got some pythoff today which i will be adding from next rez change to help control pathogens in the diy bubblers.
here are some pics of current setup.
Well I've had nothing but grief with these clones in my diy bubbler. Yesterday I had to remove the replacement clone from flower and stuck it back in the aerogarden. It seems perkier but still looks sorry for itself.
I am pretty sure most of the issue is light penetrating into the tub. So the clear tub wrapped in ducktape is in the bin. The airstones etc have been soaked in pretty much neat pythoff. They seemed to be the main growth area for the brown algea.
The tubs i am using now are the same as before but are a black plastic (still somewhat seethrough), so I have painted them white on the exterior. For the lids I glued on some mylar. So now the light penetration problem should be gone. Observation would seem to back this up.
Something I noticed when using this Pythoff with nutes and ph down the water turned milky white after a few hours and when emptying the tub you would see a huge amount of sediment.
So as of yesterday I have stopped using Pythoff and halved the nutes. I also bought a 250m3/h extraction fan to replace the 85m3/h. Today my freezer gel pacs turned up and are currently in the freezer. Tomorrow I will stick some under the tub to help keep rez temps down. Funny thing is tho the water temp in the ag can reach 30c and the plants don't seem to mind. What's even funnier is my water temps seem higher even tho its winter and my heating is off when compared to the first grow.
I'm just gonna sort some pics to post.
Nice! I'll just pull up a chair here up front and relax... this is going to be good...
We need to sort out your temperature problems mate, the res needs to be cool...
We'll find a way... but if we can't... I have a brand new can of worms just dying to be opened...lol...
Best of luck mate!!!!
oh no not the worms again, burrowing thru my mind. hehe.
first 2 pics are from a couple of weeks ago. the rest are from today.
Hey Steve... just thought I'd drop by and let you know that the surgery went well...

Anyhows I planted another blue cheese seed and a 5+year old bag seed. Both are now in the aerogarden along with two blue cheese clones. The clone in flower is doing well. No sign of brown algea or pythium.
All the best mate.
Great to hear Steve...
Glad your new fans are making your world easier...
I have had to deal with so me pretty extreme temp swings up here in AK....
It went form -35F/-37C to +46F/+8C in less than 36 hours... we had 6ft/2m of snow in front of the house, it all melted to glare ice...
I had blankets taped to the windows, heaters going day and night...
Then I wake up and it is 104F/40C in the shade!!!! (in the grow room I mean)
Well, I am glad you have kept going...
What would be a good time for me to drop by with those cans of worms...???
I want to catch you on a good moment...
your worms are always good so hit me up . as for catching me at a good moment you would have to wait till that prick gordon brown is no longer running our country hehe. that may be a while lol so bring on those worms. i wanna hear about your new setup anyhows.
i'm gonna stick another clone into flower tonight. its getting to big for the aerogarden especially with my two new additions. i was hoping to have two plants in flower but a month apart to try and get a perpetual harvest going but it hasn't quite worked out with the problems i had earlier.
how you doing btw?
