Al...many humble and sincere thanks and praises! About to finish a "modified-to-my-space" Fuct perpetual grow. Had a bit of a challenge w acquiring Sweet Tooth but am starting it with Killing Fields to get things running smooth. Quick question...have you heard of the SuretoGrow Arroyo Plugs? They fit into the 3.25 inch net pots and supposedly can be used to root clones and pop straight into pots. They are made from PETE plastic. I have some HAIL from them and am trying it out on some moms at the moment. Just wondering how the texture and water retention holds up to Fytocell.
My perp grow setup is in 8 moveable/quick-connect NFT tubes, which I was going to pilot the Killing Fields cause they were freebie and popping. Sucks to know they took that long. The read on them I thought was 8-9. Oh well, still waiting on my SOL Sweet Tooth from DR. C. Also have Blockhead on the way. Any more info on Top44?

Called the manufacturer of my tds pen meter (nutradip) and asked what conversion scale it was on. He said 700 (or 442) scale but also told me doesn't matter because meters using 500 (or NaCi)scale would read exact same ppm in my res. He says that they have different calibration solution for for different scales of conversion but once calibrated correctly, should have the same readings. He said that the Target brand 1000pm calibration that I was using should be set at 1400 not 1000. This info is conflicting with what I thought tds meters read.
I guess my question is simply put..when I take somones advice on a ppm level should I be asking what conversion factor there using? Thanks Al you rock

My starting ec from the local municipality comes out at. 6. -.7 I compared my last three grows where half the plants received ro and the other half straight tap. The plants grown with ro tested higher in final cannibinoid levels. I think this was due to the high starting EC from the tap effecting nutrient uptake.

Yeah I got Killing fields (smoking it right now, good stuff) but its def not good for SOG 10-11 week strain Im keeping her but I def need that top44 or that PPP anyone can show some other good potent lollipoop strain thats goes 8 weeks. Thanks guys
This whats its about! Read and learn. http://www.rollitup.org/hydroponics-...y-2-weeks.html
Chimera grapefruit x blueberry is basically what Al grows, same mother (clone only sweet pink grapefruit) and BB daddy is different but still from DJ Short, and not backcrossed 4 times. Grows huge single colas in 8 weeks with a nice little stretch.
Big fan here. I have been getting a harvest every week for years now, based on your grow model.
I have had this problem for a long time now (not with your model, but my hydroponics in general) where I change the water in any one of my reservoirs, add the correct amount of nutrients, set the Ph and the very next day the Ph is up 2.0-2.5 higher. Example, I set it at 5.5 and it is 7.5 the next day. I tested leaving the Ph ridiculously low (4.5) and it is 6.5 the next day.
All three of my reservoirs do it and it doesn't matter if I am doing a bi-monthly drain and fill of the water, or a complete drain, clean, sterilize and rinse that I do once a month. It only does it for the first two or three days after changing the water and then everything is fine until the next water change. I also have to set my PPM on the low side, so it doesn't become too high when I have to add Ph down a few days in a row.
