General Marijuana Growing
people's views?. in the
The Grow Room forums; ive just potted on, some 12 day old seedlings, into there next, and final pot/bottles. im going to grow them ...
ive just potted on, some 12 day old seedlings, into there next, and final pot/bottles. im going to grow them short sog style, about 1 foot. before i goto 12/12, some one suggested to use coke bottles with the top chopped off and holes drilled in the bottom., 2l bottles, or 3l bottles. so i have more pot space.
this seemed a good idea, so ive just tryed it.
in this pat. grow space, i can normally only get 4 biggish pots. but with these ill fit, 9 or even 12,bottle's. with me growing the plants much smaller than normal. i normally vegg, 5 to 6 weeks, but this time, 3 to 4 weeks.vegg. , sog style grow, im useing 250 hps. for now, but going to use 400hps. for 12/12, and can add 250 hps. or 400hps. if needed.
heres some pics. i cut the bottles tops off, drilled some holes in the bottom, added 2 1/2" pebbles in the bottom of the bottles, to help drainage, added 1/4vacumate and 1/4perlite to the 1/2muck, and a few small pebbles, in the muck too .mixed it together,except the pebbles in the bottom. what are still in the bottom.
then i put the plants in, the bottles, and added perlite to the top, i thinks pure perlite on the top of the soil, helps reflect lite, back up to the plant, because its soo white.
heres some pics, ill keep you posted.
any views welcome, like i say this is my first time growing like this. and im just having a go,

maybe wrap the bottles in something light proof...roots hate light.
Nice idea, I like it
thanks good tip, didnt know that. thats why i started the post, so people can tell me were im going wrong. thanks gygax,1974, lol thats my year of birth.
any pics or plans. never herd of that, sound good, you oldie.lol
PIcs soon, I'm still working on the vertical garden. It will consist of PVC columns. But I will post a pic of my new aero rail sysytem and how I set it up into a v, like a valley for SOG. I used vinyl fence post and some PVC, it's a awesome system so far. I just have to fill it with plants...lol. I promise when I get it up and running 100% I'll do a thread, I was inspired by Filthy Fletch's aero builds.
any plans or anything like, im doing a sog grow, plants above. and, i started 4 plants yesterday , one has poped and tap is cumming through, and i have 5 clones nearly ready, cannot wait, im going to do a scrog style grow, cannot wait to start. i have all the stuff ready to start, double closet, 400hps, fans,food,pots, cage, muck perlite, vacumate, pebbles ect... all i need now is 4 to 6 plants to start, but i think 6, maybe to many, cos im going to vegg for 6 weeks, so maybe ill only do 4 , see how it goes
Sure I will write something up soon, I basically was trying to copy this

I used vinyl fence posts, 1/2 inch pvc and a big pump, I will do something basic for you tonight...not near my growroom right now. It's very easy actually. I also wanted to make mine more versatile...less permanent, I am one of those guys that needs to reconfigure something so I can use it in different rooms...lol
cool. ive never grown, any other way than soil, i would like to have a go at hydro/areo, but dont know much about it, to try it. i like the sound of it, i just dont want to pay, for a load of stuff.
if i dont prefer that way of growing,.
what way, do you think is the easyest, and best. soil/hydro?.
I like hydro better but I still do soil also. And I hear you I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for the real deal so I figured I would build it for cheaper...turns out I like this new rail system better than DWC now.
