I hate my SIP!!!
Since I implemented it in my garden theres almost nothing to do there :/ plants seams to grow and don't need me anymore
Anybody could help me out. Im looking for a wick size for 11L (3gal) 23cm (9in) tall fabric pots ??
Building hillbilly octopot tonight pictures of the build to follow... gonna do the 3 gallon for veg. And use an old 27 gallon fir flower. Maybe something smaller.
5 gallon airpot mounted to 12 gallon tote with 6 inch net pot. 4 inch inspection port. Paint setting up. $18.. 10 minutes to build.
man I hated those air pots when i used them, interesting to see them on a sip.. dont you think the water will evaporate very quickly, and leave the soil more dry then it should be? or you thinking the wicking of the sip will make up for that?
I did some Kratcky trials in the greenhouse this summer.... im confident it will perform; so im gonna find out. Ill start a thread when i get to it one with tupur and one with bcuzz coco...
cool man! interested to see how they do... i have a bunch in a box ... worst 60 bucks i have ever spent lol
Im thinking the sip notion with these should be the ticket. What mix did you dislike when you ran them.
I was using soil they were just such a pain to water and so much run off to deal with and dried out VERY fast
Sounds like SIPS would solve those problems.
That it does! (-:
Right now I'm using 5 gal buckets and use a drip system connected to my RO tank if I go away for 2-3 days but that's about all I can do before some are over or underwatered. I was thinking of using the Home Depot city pickers grow box and keeping my drip system to fill the reserviors. this way if the res lasts 3-4 days I can set the timer to refill them on day 3 at 1/2gal or more each per day. The drippers have 2 - 1 gal per hour heads. I got thru the first 12 pages and didn't see if anyone had tried something like that yet.
What do y'all think?
What are you guys doing to keep the res from smelling like sewage/rotten eggs?
Any pond zyme should do the trick. I was adding stresszyme once a week + had small pump in the tes flooming the water and no problems throughout the whole grow.
I only topped the water, didn't even did one res change.
i have left my ladies in their sips for 10 days while i was on vacation and they were in flower ( yeah it was a little nerve wrecking) but they were just fine it was awesome! As far as smells from the rez i have never had that issue, some folks use air stones to keep rez from getting nasties in it.
I keep my res out of the grow room and in a cool place with airstones. Airstones may or may not be needed. But I have them so I use them.
Hi im new here. I have a soma sip and everything was going awesome. I just noticed this mold on a stem. Anyone have this happen or know about it?
Is that bokashi sprinkled around the base?
I think you're not supposed to have anything touching the base stem except soil.
I recall someone telling me stem rot can occur if something is touching it and is wet.
Ya it is. I was thinking fight it with good mold. But that makes sense for sure. i put my top dress next to them... I wont put it that close now!. I sprayed with em5 and did a flush of rootwise
You have to have good airflow.
