On the way

Got Gaia Green all-purpose veg & bloom and my wormcastings. Still need pearlite and the soil medium
What do you suggest @Mpower11
I’ve got another drip system so I’ll have at least 2 on each side and will distribute 2gal per hour.
I downloaded that app for par. What’s a good number for all 4 reading’s. This is the part I’m learning now brother. I’m going to do 8 photo’s and 4 Autoflower’s. I’ve got 45lbs 20kg of Gaia Green coming 22.5lbs of each I’d guess…

I now know the distance of my light is supposed to be from the canopy. 22in will balance it out for a great distribution of light though out the whole footprint.
Waiting for organic perlite good my wormcastings and waiting for the Gaia Green all-purpose veg and Bloom…
Still need a good soil. Coco Choir dries out too fast so I think I’m going to use soil I just don’t understand how I’m going to keep the top from getting dry. That’s my biggest worry I saw these pads out there that says it distribute your water equally when it drips on it and I believe that would probably keep the top wet easier? what do you think? @Mpower11 @Todd.grobo ?

I’m worried about how too not let it dry on top… Other than that I get how it works. If it drys it dies…

Soil I use local living organic soil. Shipping soil cost to much $$$

I haven’t tried those rings yet so I can’t comment on how well they work or how they work.

When I start my next row I’m going to be using halo drip rings that I showed you already. I think that will address even watering of soil

The 2 thing’s I have to figure out is how to keep the top dry. You said it can not get dry because I’m going to drip what I need to get it all wet. Then watch it to see how long it takes to start drying up on the crust and set a timer too start adding drops and see how long that takes and shut off. On/Off On/Off. And do I need the plastic pieces for the pads?

You dug up your own or bought it at a local retailer… Kinda confused… Sorry brother…

So are you talking about germ. Or the blocks…
Get the square :white_large_square: cube’s as my medium?

I think it’s a good idea but no funds for it…

Easier to control at 5 gallon pots or smaller anything larger is a challenge

I’ve got 3g 5g and 10g as my last pot and will take 2gallons easy. I got 2 kits I’m going to make sure it is wet with 2. I wanted to just get a Halo but the tube sizes are different for every brand. I’ve got my pump a my and I’m T,ing out the pump and using barbed piping and soft line too Hook Both manifolds up to the same pump.
Then cutting everything from there equal (same lingth for a better distribution. 5 gal is too small for a photo or phenotype 10gl I think does better.
I’m going ty cannabis social club Saturday and I’m going to try some try to get some cool seeds for this project I’ve got some cool seeds but I want a couple more.
I’ve moved both tent’s I’m using up on the main floor and treat them like seedlings… Checking on them 3very 2hrs or sooner. I just think if I want to continue to grow I’m doing it right…
