Wanting to start a Hydro Grow, Pics of grow area, new to this please help :D
Hey all, i recently put a deposit on this rental house, and the basement is where ill be having my ladies grow, i have so many q uestions but will limit them because alot of my questions can be answered as i keep reading.
I am worried about this basement because of bugs, See the concrete only goes about 4 1/2 feet on the ground and the surrounding goes into the foundation under the house, i plan on putting a Tarp perhaps? To keep anything large out, Wood/Sheetrock, SOMTHING.
I am Wanting to Grow Hydro, Am i going to have to worry about bugs? - Im looking to have a system where i can harvest quick, but i want Quality and Quanity, im looking to commercial thease, and show my friends what a bag of bud looks like without the seeds, haha, So i want to always be harvesting, But not ignoring the sweet taste and potency of my bud.
See, i planned on growing soil, but until i read up on Hydro, seems like it suits me more - im wanting to Harvest, 3-5 pounds per harvest ( Hopefully every 2 months? )
Anyhow- This is my Space im working with, unfortunatly i didnt get the measurments, its a wierd room, has a water heater, taking out a Quater of the room.
Please excuse the Spray paint, its how it came.
Lets see , i am a very short dude, i am like 5'4 5'5 , and the ceilling goes another 10 inches...
So some additional Info..
My problem is figuring out what kind of hydro system i want, Drip system or EB & flow, im not sure, is th ere a site with the pro's and cons?
Money is limited, i can spend a few 100, not including the lights, - Not sure about the strain yet.
once i DO find a strain i like, im gonna be getting some mothers
I was wondering if anyone had a AIM screen name i can talk with for a few mins when they have time..
Thanks everyone, i will keep reading!
So sorry for where the link is comming from - I cant get it to attach
a DWC DEEP WATER CULTURE MULTI SET-UP WITH FLOAT VALVES ETC WOULD BE THE BEST FOR FORGIVENESS ,QUALITY,QUANTITY AND YIELD! IF YOU ARE TALKING ABT COMMERCIAK GROW, YOU COULD USE A MULTI-DUCT NFT (NUTRIENR FILM TECHNIQUE) SYSTEM!
Check out kpw555 grow set up it he has what your looking for...
the space you have is limited but i think his set up will give you
First Hydro Grow!!

Your NOT going to be able to harvest 3-5 pounds with only a few hundred
dollars. In fact you won't harvest that much with only $1000 dollars.
Maybe if you had about 3-4 thousand.
The reality is, Hydroponic growing is a hell of alot more expensive than soil
growing. I'm not going to sit here and itemize every little thing you'll need
to start growing hydro.
Hydroponic growing takes extreme nuturing.
I see alot of people are turned on by the idea of going hydro because
watering is automated by timers. This is probably the only easy aspect
Everything else takes patience, research, and extreme care.

I think hydro is pretty easy. Helluva lot cleaner and way more inconspicuous than carrying bags of soil into the house. It is true you need to research some. I think its even good to get your groove on with a soil grow first and move on from there... But I wouldn't say it takes more work than soil.. In my experience it is way less.
Do you even grow hydro?? Hempy buckets are an almost foolproof hydro method.. dwc is super quick and easy.. I think there are misconceptions that hydro is really expensive and difficult.
Hydro growing is just as messy as soil, if not messier....

Scrub out all the sediment in planter tray
Then put it all back together, and putting in fresh nutrient.
When putting in fresh nutrient, it entails alot of measuring & weighing.
I have 12 different items that I have to mix for my vegetative resevoirs.
I have 16 different items that I have to mix for my flowering resevoirs.
When growing in soil, you don't have to go through even half of what I
through. For soil all you need is a dust buster.
