    I've got a question, I know this is going to seem stupid (and I'm sure it is ) . First let start with, I recently monster cropped for the first time in a diy aero cloner made from a coffee container with a 3" netty I want to transplant to something bigger. It has a beautiful root system hanging out of the netty. My question is wtf do I do now? Can I put this thing in dirt, will I have to stay with a dwc , is it ok to pull the roots out of the netty and place them in another large netty with hydron ? I would like to mother with this cutting but I need advice .Thanks for your input.
    Peace out Bare
    P.S. all smart ass answers are welcome so let the show begin.

    If i were you id jus put sum hyrdoton in the bigger netty and then place the smaller one inside the big one n fill the surrounding space gently.. as far as switching to soil i heard its complicated...

    Ps... get the water chiller bro lol i was wrong

    Bareback Well-Known Member

    Pythium is very hard to get rid of some say you can't with out starting a new system , if the system is built right kept clean and maintained, proper water water temp, you should never have to run H2o2 and that stuff. its a wast of money

    High Pot Roast. I am needing some advice and a startup growing plan for growing Girl Scout Cookies the Hydro way. What do I need to purchase to get this up and running within about a month or so? I want to yield about 4 plants. Should I start with clones or straight seeds? Thanks in advance!!

    Is 400ppm too hard of water from the tap?

    fandango Well-Known Member

    Sure seems High...have you priced the RO filter?

    Bigdaddy212 Well-Known Member

    Just tested mine today and its at 256 from tap

    Gibbz2.0 Well-Known Member

    I'm just going to use distilled water until I can afford a filter. How often do you guys need to add more water? Seems like my four little guys are chugging it

    CannaBruh Well-Known Member

    no, DWC can run and aero might be a bit harder to dial, ime.

    Depends what nutrients you want to run , some don't play as nice as others with the hard water.

    Lucas formula GH 6/9 worked well with the hardwater as did Canna coco A&B and the cheap FF growbig/tiger/bigblooms

    I have the fox farm dirty dozen can't wait for these, is hydro a lot faster growing then soil?

    Bareback Well-Known Member

    Yeah hydro faster.

    But you'll need to to get the hydro grow big. Unless I'm mistaking the dirty dozen comes with the soil grow big.

    fandango Well-Known Member

    Hydro takes the same amount of time to flower...but should yield more dry bud.
    I lolipop the stem and use 2 levels of netting to grow lots of Bud sites.
    I match my ppm to the light I am running.
    600w = 600ppm etc.My tap water is 135ppm.
