    Last run, only had four of the five plant produce, the fifth plant, 3.75 zips 105 g's was hardly worth making Cannabis Oil out of it..
    The other 4 plants, all G13 Haze from Barneys Farm gave me a total of 8 + zips per plant or 34.5 zips. Total ended up being 1.53 G/W not too bad. I trimmed 24.5 for smoking and the other ten that were mainly smaller, not worth trimming buds, went straight into making O. So just over 6 zip/plant. If I include the 5th plant 105 g's the that would be 7.7 zip for that grow.
    Don't think I will pull that this run as these plants are mainly Indica doms. But they are filling out well.

    Forgot to ask, what strain are you going to be running? @OneHitDone

    OneHitDone Well-Known Member

    First up will be my old faithful Sweet Black Angel that I ran vert the last time.
    I have Blood Diamond Kush also that I would love to grow out as a mega tree :hump:
    Plan to pop some other stuff in around as usual in pots as well - cbd's for the woman, etc..

    Can I make a suggestion?

    You have the 600W and the 1000W lamps backwards. Put the small ones in the corners and the big one in the middle.

    OneHitDone Well-Known Member

    The 600 probably won't be put into play
    I'm leaning towards a pair of 4 lamp T5's hung on their side (one at the back of each pair of plants) with half "flowering spectrum" lamps and half PowerVeg FSUV's to bring some UV into the mix :hump:

    A little update, things are moving slowly but the vision is clear...

    Buckets acquired and the lids cut square to accept some "Flow N Grow" baskets I had laying around from a previous project.

    IMG_1899.jpg IMG_1900.jpg IMG_1902.jpg IMG_1901.jpg

    Cut access holes for drain clearing. I guess I have some Barney Rubble digits or something cause a 3" hole just wasn't gonna do - went with 4" and made some custom plugs out of a garden kneeling mat (nice springy neoprene type foam) since I couldn't find plugs to suit my liking at the Homie Diaper.
    These inserts will allow the roots to grow all over out the sides completely filling the bucket. Plants will stay in the bucket from about 4 week veg on and never need to have their roots disturbed :hump:

    Drain plumbing will be like this...


    PVC coupler will be mounted to the stands that will be constructed allowing the bucket to sit down in place with the 1" drain fitting just resting inside the pvc. That way I can rotate the plants or pull the bucket up without fighting any hose connections.
    This is my modified take on the @PKHydro system - Thank you for the inspiration brother :weed:
    1" hose straight back to the res from each plant sight.

    Looking good man! Coming along nicely, can't wait to see this in action.

    Your most likely going to have to play with the plugs for the 4" access holes. Be prepared for leaks untill you get it dialed. I used some random plumbing caps. Once i wrapped some electrical tape around it a few times they fit perfectly.

    Why do you need such a big hole? Drill your drain hole close to the edge of the bucket by your access hole, then it's easy to get a couple of fingers in to push the roots away. It really only needs to be done 1 or 2 times throughout flower, its weird but they learn pretty quick.

    I am putting the drain fitting dead center so I can rotate the plants as needed.
    The holes are cute 1.5" up from the bottom so hopefully there isn't pooling to that depth to begin with. I'm sure the flow rates are going to need some tinkering

    PKHydro Well-Known Member

    Pooling won't be an issue as long as the bottom of the bucket is above the waterline in your res, and provided you dont get any air locks that prevent draining. However you WILL get water running down the insides of the bucket walls, this is where I got my leaks from. If your seal in the 4" hole isn't water tight you'll get some slight leakage. Just a heads up so you can be ready to tweak as need be.

    I saw some talk about nutrients not dissolving properly.
    Sometimes even falling out of suspension in the concentrate bottle.
    The fix is easy, just heat it up. I always boil a kettle when I start mixing nutes (I use dry nutes often).'
    I put a bit of boiled water in a cup and then add the nutrients, stir it in, and then pour it into the fertilizer buckets, one after the other.
    This way it mixes really well. My concentrates made from salts are not even milky anymore,

    The force is strong with this one! Sometimes I feel like I need a go pro cam for some of the crazy shit we pull off in our gardens. The vision is manifesting!

    Here's a little drain fitting detail.
    The buckets will be be easily removable / rotatable.
    The 1" hose will connect to the blue fitting and run back to the res
