    this design is similar to Stinkbud's, with a little tweeking. follow his design and alter it to suit your application.

    Looks great, man. Should have a much easier time with the added space between plants. Both designs are great, though.

    I didn't get to read the whole thread but did you eventually realize that you can't produce 2 lbs in that tub? Or were you including the branches?:leaf:

    Has anyone tried a pump that is more powerful than the 633 GPH EcoPlus for this setup?

    Would the EcoPlus 1056 GPH offer superior performance with 36 sprayers? Or is that just wasting money?


    Thanks.

    I've got a 1000gph pump running 34 sprayers. So, yeah:leaf:

    makes me wonder if one could use an ezcloner all the way through flower, its the exact same thing but plug instead of nets, also could you post a picture of what the roots look like right at or before harvest!!
    thanks

    The plug alone may not be able to support the plant through maturity. At least that's what I remember hearing from somebody on the forum:leaf:

    Quick question you say 2lbs in one of the 2x4. Also u say you use 2 under a 1000w so are you getting close to 4lbs per 1000w? Or 2lbs per light?
    Thanks

    "I once got 28.6 lbs with two flashlights and a picture of the sun". I can't remember who had this as their quote but I always died laughing when I read it!:leaf:

    this video of seemorebuds inspired me also ... the quantity of yield he was able to produce in such a small time frame and space is encouraging... i just wanted to know how many mothers would you need to have to supply a few hundred clones to if u had multiple set ups as he did? and how long would the mothers have to be vegged for until you can take this kind of volume of them????????????????

    Good questions. But, all of this will be specific to each strain. I have G-13 Haze that bushes out crazy and grows fast. I could take 4 mothers and get 100 clones from each in about 1-1.5 months of veg in a good soilless mix. hydro would be faster. If I were to go with Blackberry or Sour Diesel it would either take longer or require more mothers. These two will not branch out like the G-13. She has virtually NON-EXISTENT INTERNODAL SPACING. So, it varies. If you are pruining the mothers as they veg, you can increase the number of shoots, thus increasing your efficiency. Blessings!

    It was an estimate based on the results in the See More Buds video. One table...2 lbs. I have strains that would easily pull this off, now (Black Jack, Blackberry). But, I have gone on to more conservative designs because of my legal status.

    YES! Use less sprayers than the original design. I see many people and stores with these DIY aero set-ups that have a weak spray. What you want is that water moving thru those sprayers swiftly to create a mist. The finer you get those water droplets the better. Blessings!

    I've been looking at this setup but how effective do you think it would be as a DWC instead? Basically just to cut costs since I plan on having a few of these

    I don't know if was mentioned in the post or not but the home depot item and part number is

    Rubbermaid 54-Gallon Jumbo Steel/Galaxy Roughtote Storage Container
    Model # FG3A05HDSTGAL
    Store SKU # 801975


    I myself just became a big follower of the seemorebuds scene, and I am loving the results...
