    This is going to be my go-to Journal / Picture Dump from now on.
    Everything I grow is soilless & likely from an inexpensive DIY hydroponics setup or home made cloner.
    I am a frugal bastard that does what he can to grow Hugh Hefner weed on a Joe Dirt budget.

    Current Grow Room Setup:

    FLOWER ROOM 8'x10'
    (2) DIY F&D tables each containing 2 flood tubs.
    This current system is capable of running 20 plants at a time.
    Each flood table is approx 40" x 36".
    1 Gal pots with Hydroton clay pellets for the medium.
    (2) 1000W MH/HPS lights
    (2) 4' UV-A lights
    The tables are capable of running 16 plants comfortably.

    VEG ROOM 4'x4' -ish
    (1) 2' 6500K 4 bulb T5HO light
    This room is capable of housing 4 mommas comfortably.


    Kosher Kush by Reserva Privada
    Honey Banana by Elemental (currently germinating)

    Current Growing Method:
    I cut clones from the mommas, root them, then transfer them to hydroton 1 Gal pots under the flower lights for 1-3 days to harden off, then flip em to 12/12. Virtually zero veg time.
    I usually use a bubble cloner for my cuts, but the Glue just dont like it so I do her in rapid rooter plugs and a dome tray.

    When it comes to nutrients & items on my shelf, I keep it pretty simple.
    -GH Flora Series 3 part
    -Humboldt Ginormous Bloom Boost (0-18-16)
    -GH CALiMAGic (mainly used when running COB's)
    -GH pH Down
    -Hydrogen Peroxide

    When it comes to the aresenal and preventative maintenance I keep it pretty natural.
    -Bayer Advanced Concentrated Neem Oil
    -Green Cure (Potassium Bicarbonate)

    Here's a few pics to get it started:

    Is it possible to move your table into the corner while they are still small? That way two sides get bonus reflective light.

    Thanks ! I had been running in a half finished room for a while. Its nice to have it all done.
    Im about 10-12" from the wall. I originally had it how you suggest but I grew a Chocolate Skunk that was massive and it got pretty tight in that corner.

    In that setup, I would use the largest pot/bag I can fit and grow only one mean scrogged plant.
    Heck, you could plant two plants in it if you want to.

    It is always more important to be active then just plan. I have two scrog tables running that totals about 24.5 x 4'
    There is always a bazzilion more toys I'd like to add, but at the end of the day big grows are pretty expensive.
    Not to mention nerve wrecking. Just 49 days to go.

    I've seen a lot of your posts but never checked out you're threads looks like you've got some good stuff on tap was the bog lifesavers a keeper?

    HydroRed Well-Known Member

    Well, the Honey Banana popped a tap and thats as far as she went. Im germinating a Black DOG by H.S.O so we'll see where it goes. I believe it was @Amos Otis that put me on this one?
    Thanks for stopping in. I had a pheno that was absolutely perfect smelling, like a piece of grape bubbletape bubble gum but the taste & smoothness wasn't on point with the smell even after a good cure. Pretty decent bud that I'd still recommend trying, just wasn't keeper worthy for me. I've only got 4 momma spaces and 2 of them are taken up so its gotta be 100% fire all the way around to keep a momma.

    horribleherk Well-Known Member

    I've been eyeballing black dog myself but as of late tapped into 2 nearby clone sources www.kingklonebrand.com & www.darkheartnursery.com so I haven't been ordering seeds if I remember right Amos likes couch lock leaning stuff like you I gotta have fire taking up my space lol..

    I'm jaded as shit about getting clones anymore, but yet my circle is small and were running out of "new" strains between us so I'll be doing a little more when it comes to starting seeds trying to find the next "keeper" for us. What do you have your eye on for clones?

    Tasted like mango papaya and was by far the fruitiest weed I have ever smoked. Had I known what she was, I would have kept her around.

    it actually looks like an og kush as the kingklone version is actually a cross that to me resembles the real 707 headband I had it in dwc & when the heatwave hit it got sick so I cloned it it's got grapevine structure & throws random 3 fingered leaves pretty much everything I grow is sativa dominant I prefer a sativa dominant hybrid although black dog & kosher kush catch my interest
