I wanted to try a bubble bucket but my air pump is already in my cloner! My god though, that root ball is otherworldly. And hell yes to the experimenting! I've been doing the same with each one of my crops, it's all a new plant's life and since my ladies usually crop out at the same time, it's a complete restart. It's a little depressing to see that area plantless for a little while.
If you are experimenting though, I suggest getting some chicken wire and revegging one of those babies
I did actually use sand 3 or 4 crops ago in my medium and have kept it since. I find with spegnum moss and MiracleGro organic soil it still holds waaaay too much water, even in the pots without sand in the medium. I'm pushing it watering the stuff in this soil every 4 days!
I'm thinking of using honey to attack the root rot, though.still have more research to do.
I personally think SCroG eliminates the need for all the bending and such seeing as it gets all of the LST it needs in
Randomly, just earlier this evening I was wondering if honey couldn't be used (if you were on a budget or desperate) when making clones. The hydrogen peroxide would keep it free of fungus etc. but really honey is mostly sugar, so I'm not sure that wouldn't dry out the clone through osmosis. Maybe I'll try it one day.
On the issue of nutrients, I am an avid honey eater, and always used to claim that it "wasn't just sugar". Unfortunately, unless you're pouring whole jars of
