    the strain I am running is Blackberry Kush. It is a 7 week indica
    strain that has a strong berry flavor, lots of chrystals, and is
    the lowest yielder I have ever seen! Even lower than OG. Sigh. I
    only ran her because it was the one mom I had that was big enough
    to spit out enough clones. 60 this time

    Yes, what strain are you growing. Im gonna be starting a volksgarden grow soon and im trying to find an ideal strain.

    Were counting on you to keep a decent journal with pics man. There are alot of people out there who NEED to see that this thing isnt just hype.

    I am using Botanicare's CNS (commercial nutrient system) 17 veg formula and their flower formula as well. I used to use all Canna nutrients but they are insanely expensive and weren't what I was looking for. I felt that the Canna food emphasized red hair growth and taste. Two things I don't care about very much. The CNS 17 (in my opinion) promotes size, resin, and hardness. On top of that the CNS is 1/4 the price and it is a simple one part formula unlike Canna. I keep the nutrient mixture light (800 PPM) for veg since they are new to the Volksgarden at that point. In flower in the first week I give them 1000 - 1200 ppms for the first week, after that 1500.

    it'll be a DIY 4 tier octagon (16 plants per tier & 15 on the floor) i saw on CC being used by "Duckhead"...it'll use 3 bulbs (600Ws or 1000Ws) totaling either 1800W or 3000W...soil and handwatering

    "Duckhead" was managing to get 6.25LBS. per grow using 79 plants...i was planning on running the almost exact set up as him, but minus the 15 plants on the floor and i plan on going perpetual which would harvest me 16 plants bi-weekly

    another possibility is constructing a replica of our own FloJo's vertical constant drip grow (which is probably what i'll go with but with hand watering) from the inside of a DR300W

    I was thinking that i dont like rockwool, i think its nasty.
    maybe youll like to try using a coco block, or a fluffy cotton looking block from "sure to grow"
    i think either one would produce better than rockwool, and perhaps you could get more than one feeding in daily.

    i am interested in alternatives to rockwool but at the moment i dont have the inclination to try anything else till i have what i am doing at the moment dialed in.

    i agree that rw is nasty though it has good capillary action and all you need to do to get the watering right with it is to water to a 1/4 inch depth and you have no driping. i will have to test the alternatives before i take them on
