    should have added more selection. You forgot coco, because coco is not hydro or soil.

    There are many different mediums and grow styles. so by hydro are we talking deep water culture,Nutrient film technique, Dripfeed, flood and drain. Then there is as Ocdgrower states the types of medium soil,coco, clay pebbles. lets not forget airoponics and aquaponics (not the same as hydro as uses fish as a source of nutrients.) So what are we really talking here? best for what taste, speed, size of harvest, ease of grow or just preferred method. Some of these factors will also come down to where you live, weather and temps.

    You are 100 percent right about there are many different factors that you have to keep in mind when you setup your grow. I learned this the hard way. I live in Colorado which is very dry which means that i have to run humidifiers to keep your humidity up. I have tried soil (fox farmer ocean forest), bubbletronics a type air and pump system, and i am currently using coco with perlite. The other factor is how will the grower pays attention to his plants and what they feed it with.

    So this end's next Sunday, October 19th? What do we have to provide for the grow off? Is how well the plant looks by the end date good enough (even if not the final results), or would someone need to provide a full grow log of the entire grow, and have the plant harvested by that date?

    I will be finishing one of my plants Friday, and my second on the twenty-seventh. Will post some pictures of both of them. What do I have to do to win this?

    unfortunately this will prove nothing seeing if you grabed 10 clones and put them in the same exact condition there will be 1 that thrives more than the rest.

    Soil for so long, but... now that I have learned how to control res temps and Ph.... Hydro all the way...

    I still grow a dirt plant or two here n there, but find myself battling mites and getting half the yield (if) ......

    My simple bubble buckets keep spitting out trees with stalks nearly 2" wide at the base... I love having 1 plant in the space 4 used to be....

    Any tips for keeping res temp down? What do you flower under?

    Keep the res outside your room in a room with an air conditioner. Or by a chiller. Or you can take 2 litre soda bottles and put water in them and freeze them and throw those in your reservoir to keep it nice and cool.
