4x4 Ebb n Flow White Russian SoG Style
What is up ! Just wanted to get some feedback on my new setup.. Keep in mind this is my first hydro grow lol.
Anyway, Im on week 2 of running a 4x4 Ebb n Flow with 25 White Russian ladies. I have 1 gallon Smart Pots and so far these things are boss. . I have them in a GrowLab under a 400w right now but once I flower I have my 600 ready to go. I'm using Dutch Master gold line up with GH's Rapid Start, and later Sweet along with MOAB. Keeping the ph around 5.8 but like a day later it goes up to 6.3 usually. I don't know if this is normal or not so if anyone knows what the deal is with that I'm all ears..
PPM's for my first week was about 590 with an EC of 1.2 using RO/DI water. I think its a little strong though haha. I plan on vegging for 3 weeks I guess, but I am not sure how fast they will grow so I will play it by ear.
As far as venting goes I have my hood with a 6" Windtunnel on it vented through the cieling and I'm planning on getting a windtunnel 4 so I can mount my carbon filter to it and have the outtake. Temps are ok at about 71 - 78 so far and a res temp of 70, but I need to order my exhaust fan asap because of my humidity issue lol.
I'm going to try and update this regularly through their journey so let me know what you guys think.. and now for pic sex.
Got the clone, then mom'd it for these clones.
Day 1 in the tray.

sub'd up, looking great!!! i know i have seen this grow somewhere before
this section is good for posting your grow, you can post it in the journal section if you want but i like putting mine here. is your fan sucking air from outside the tent>>through the light>>outside the tent??
looking real good bro.

as for the ph swing, are you getting allot of water loss along with that? i know when i was running flood trays with that much hydroton in top i would have to top of my res daily with ph'd water. also if your res in inside your tent and the temp in the tent is around 75-80 you can usually expect the water to be about the same if not a tad warmer, this can cause bacteria and ph swings.
Thanks haha what's up green. So actually yeah, I have been losing a lot of water. This week I had to top off my res with water twice because I noticed the level dropped pretty good. I'm thinking of freezing 2 liter bottles and putting them in my tray so I can lower the wateer temps.
Yeah, the venting is set up so it sucks from outside through my light and out into my crawl space through the roof.
Ya man freeze those bottles and drop them in the res tank, that will help a bunch. As water evaporates you nutes won't so they will become more concentrated throw everything out of wack. I use to top up daily with ph'd water when running the trays.
You could drop the suction side ducting off of your light and that would remove hot air from the tent and take it through the light then out the room, this would drop your temps quite a bit ( not like they are that high ) I know you where saying you wanted to run co2 is that still your plan?
Thanks I actually just took it off and had it suck the air from the tent and temps went down even more I think Ill try that tomorrow with the ice bottles.
I don't think I will run co2 this time only because I want to try and get my environment down right before I do that. Plus I want to see what I get without using co2 and then do another grow with. Sort of like a before and after makeover haha.
Thanks! Glad you like.
