hand feeding is not nearly enough, the whole medium has to be thoroughly drenched each feeding. a simple analogue pin timer from a hardware store will run a pump easy as pissing push 1 pin down every 2.5 hours roughly, and you're done. it is very easy to set the res up, i just cut 2 holes in the bottom on the side, seal them with rubber grommets, and run both my feed line out, and my return line in, right next to each other, my pump sits sidewayz on my res wall, and pumps straight out. the reason you want the return line at the bottom is because of gravity. it needs to return through the bottom, or the pot won't drain, and you will drown your roots.

perlite is shweeeet

Haha you make a good point there flowa, well it happens that I already have one of the pin timers so all i need is the pump, hosing and drip ring. With the grommets you use for the drainage holes, do you get them from bunnings too? What size do you use?

good stuff man!, i believe they are a 19mm and 14 or 15 from memory, the hydro stores will know., just give them or a buzz, or maybe someone else will know the exact, aslong as its a tight ass fit, but not too tight u cant get the joiners in the grommets. u need atleast a 3 inch joiner for both inlet and loutlet, so you have enough length to attach your hoses. i just topped the hell out of my girl, cut 4 clones and went mad on most of her tips, i even lollypopped a few bottom branches that i found last grow yielded low satisfying buds, she grew amazing overnight, i will bug fog the room again tomorrow to make sure i didnt miss any eggs or flies, and put my next net in, depending on her growth in the next week, this will determine my flowering time for when i can start,...oh yeah got my new bong tonight, just gotta pick it up from a mates place yeee haaa!!! fuck yeah pics of my girl and bong later tonight.....

Hey everyone!! did my topping and cloning tonight, day 24, and she's already a a monster, big enough for what i want! i'll let her run for a few days, 5 maybe 6, depending on how much she grows.
i actually snipped a few more off here and there from what in these pics, i get over-eager, and like a neat canopy. After a few days i can train her a bit, although i noticed ol' Jack x doesn't like to bend, she's a brittle bitch, and i've already snapped a branch barely even bending it.
My clones were done with my usual simple technique of slicing with a new blade, scoring the edges of the cuts with the blade, dipping in dutch masters Cloning gel, i think its replicator i cant be bothered checking i'm toasted....dipping and then planting them each into a pre-soaked 2 inch rockwool cube, that was soaked in a mild Rizo solution. i will leave them over night, then begin their 18hr cycle in the tent for a couple of days, then under a desk lamp flouro...

Plant is looking healthy. Good job. Nice piece too, what do you have in the bowl??
Have you ever tried or use Rapid Root Plugs or Riot Root Plugs?

dude flowamasta, growing is an art, and you are an artist! +rep if i can

what do i have in the bowl? if you are refering to the cone piece, i got a way over packed cone of my new outdoor batch. would of been nearly half a gram in that cone lol. I have never heard of rapid root plugs, basically what i do i all i know, it has always worked for me in the past, so i'll keep doing it until i find a nice propagator.
