This is my first grow experience with hydro.
After researching DWC styles I decided to go with an 8 site Under Current system. I built it using 10 gallon totes @ 28" on center with 2" PVC and uniseals. To run the system I'm using a 1/4hp "EcoPlus" water chiller, a 950gph "Danner MagDrive Supreme" water pump, a 180Lpm commercial airpump pushing eight 4 foot "EcoPlus" air defusers as well as a "General Hydroponics" duel diaphragm air pump pushing a 9" air diffuser in the epicenter.
I'm using two 1000w HPS's and a 400w MH, I also might add some supplemental T5 lighting.
I'm using a 5050 BTU air conditioner and a 70 pint dehumidifier along with a number of oscillating fans.
I'll be using Supernatural nutes and STG (Sure-to-Grow) Hail as the grow medium.
I started from cuttings on 8/24/11
I placed the plants in the UC system on 10/15/11 for 36 hours of dark before lights on at 12/12.

Removed major fan leaves and under performing growth.
