    December 3rd... Paint is done. Mesh is slightly straighter now. And I have two buckets prepped and ready to roll. Cover/living mulch crops already sown.

    Just need to soak some seeds. And off I go again. 20171203_210318.jpg The paint used was Dulux Ceiling, Bathroom & Kitchen. Flat white antimicrobial, mold and mildew resistant.
    Probably could have gotten away with a 1L tin. But opted for 2L. Heh. Just means I've got enough for another build.

    Nah, the paint doesn't last forever, it can do with a coat before the next batch is done.

    Put some kind of tray in the bottom. Maybe a kitty litter tray?

    Is that an overflow/spill catcher?

    Guess I'm getting some kitty litter trays then. Not that I had much problem with spillage. That's not to say I won't.

    6th of December 2017.

    Round 4 under way.


    I was considering swapping the two pots for 6, 2L ice cream containers. And going with a whole bunch of my unknowns in 1212 just to see what's there.

    But I've decided to drop one Pineapple Chunk (2nd time). And one Granny (3rd time) for this round.

    They're both fairly evenly paced and spaced in their growing styles. Just that Gran is slightly more cerebral and PiChu is more relaxing when consumed.

    I've been informed I may have difficulties maintaining the scrog up the sides. I guess I see their point. I did find it tricky to work with last time. But, I had less room to maneuver. And smaller diameter, rigid mesh. But, we'll see. If it is too much effort. I'll revert to flat scrog next time.

    20171205_231355.jpg 20171205_110142.jpg Added the bottom fan to boost the circulation... it's very. Directional. It produces a strong column of air.
     
  8. Look at cement mixing trays too. And the storage containers that slide under beds. Or you could just get a saucer from a grow shop for a couple of bucks! By the way that paint looks fresh and clean...just how we like it!!

    Well there's some good ideas. The paint is definitely fresh. But its still my half baked work. Not that I was high while doing it.

    19th Dec, 2017. I'm still not sure if I'll use that mesh in its current config. May still go a standard scrog.

    But, here's my pineapples... gran didnt germ. 20171218_221510.jpg 20171218_221426.jpg

    Please tell me, what did you saw as cover crop? Everything I am using in my veggie garden seems to be waaaay to big...

    And I think the idea of your mesh config is nice, but overdone (for sure, it‘s only my opinion!). I think it would work better as a flat „V“. And the cobs would light the cab more uniform, when you spread them out just a little more. The picture is just GREAT, to see the hotspot you have to „battle“ with. Wall - cob - cob - wall (each „-„ should be same size, in a scrog, I would get even a bigger distance between the cobs, especially because you have so beautiful white walls! Not much light lost (10%), but no hotspot, so more light is being used about the whole surface (again, just my opinion ;) ). I think it‘s easier (and maybe even faster to grow with) to spread the cobs, than a complex timing/training (as far as I can imagine). But I like experiments, so I would like to watch it, as it is :) You never learn something new, if you follow whats common :bigjoint:

    Have a nice grow! :peace::weed:

    @Serva yeah. I realize the cob distance isn't ideal. But, I haven't made changes to the light frame to accommodate the new setup. It's still in the old config.

    I forgot to mention @Serva it's Strawberry clover. But I'm sure any clover works.

    I've just tweaked the angle of the lights a little. Probably not going to make too much of a difference. But now the "kill zone" is more spread out.

    20171219_190156.jpg

    I'm also looking at redoing that scrog mesh. I'm definitely going to level it out properly this time. I somehow managed to get one side up 1.5cm higer than the other... derp.

    My main problem is tools. All my power tools have shit the bed. And I dont have much of anything else. Too busy paying for crud.

    I do like your setup especially the buckets. I drill holes in all my pots.

    Jan, 9, 2018...

    Twin pineapple chunks are nearly a month old now. The config is now flatlander scrog. And I've yet to add those extra 8cm of cob spacing to my lights. Because- no tools to use. Also. I'm a Pro-crastinator.

    Latey Katey, on the left has more heads than Firsty Frieda. Same fim/top method used. But Katey decided she wants to really bush out.

    Frieda has about 8 potential heads. Where as Katey has about 14-16 20180109_002642.jpg ... 20180109_002722.jpg

    Thanks @Unit Farm System Supply these pineapple chunks work a little different to the the other plants I've grown. They're called chunk for a reason. They don't seem to be as flexible as some of the others I've tried. And they don't branch out that much either.
