2 Hydro + Led. Help?!?! Suggestions
Posted 01 May 2012 - 07:53 AM
I have :
2 waterfarm completes
Dr60 grow tent
Fan filter combo , cycles air 5 times a minutes
1 HTG 240w led panel, a second on the way.
I have a 32 oz bottle of floranova and root cubes
***all of my water is 0 ppm starting***
I'm growing purely for personal medical use due to stress/ulcers and a mix of other meds. Was sick and tired of the endless pill circle. I'm a computer programmer and would like to experience a desirable smoke compared to just a couch lock. So I am taking recommendations on strains, also have been looking at auto flowers.
Specifically what are your average ppm per week for the entire grow with waterfarms, seedling to harvest.
And what strain would you recommend for flavor ease of growth and yield?
**yield is the least important factor**

Your ppm going to vary throughout the grow starting off around 300-400 when they get 3rd set of leaves in. You can increase by 100ppm every other day until you get to your stopping point. I have never used those nutes you have so this may not be the most accurate info but is generally the same for most nutes.
Autos are probably a good choice for LED since they are shorter and LED's have less penetration than MH/HPS. That LED you have is a nice one too.

Well today I ordered 3 World of Seeds Afgahn Kush seeds and it comes with a free Critical + Auto and a White widow, I'll be growing the critical+ and an Afgahn most likely or just both Afgahns I can't decide yet Afgahn I hear is one of the easiest most forgiving plants so why not I could go a little over on the nutes and it would flourish later on.
I have done that auto as well (afghan kush ryder)... In fact just got done with her not too long ago and think I'll smoke a bowl of her now!
For the record however, The easyryder is better imo. I only got 3/4 zip on one auto afghan kush ryder vs. 3 zips on an easyryder. And the easyryder was a bit more potent but the taste of the afghan is a lil better.
To be fair however my afghan kush ryder was done in less than 2 months and under a 90w ufo.

I actually have a 240w and a 90 w right now, I have the RMA for the 90w but am about to ship it back for a second 240. I figured for about $80 more it would be worth it.

I have about 5 diff auto strains right now, just doing them one at a time for now (also got photoperiods I am more partial to).
Unfortunately all my auto grows have been under various conditions so it makes it hard to compare strains. I use to use HID's on them but recently am all LED for my autos as an experiment. my 90w ufo veg's my photoperiods and my 240w led does autos start to finish (with 2 small t5's as well).

I'm hoping for the best this is a pretty amount of money I've sunk in to make sure I had the best rounded setup. If I can't get some good bud from this, I probably should stop smoking honestly lol
The smoke you grow will be killer no doubt. Yields are what I'm concerned with. But I guess 3/4 zip on one auto that was totally done with all amber hairs and trichomes in less than 2 months time from seed is pretty good considering it was only under 90w ufo.
I'm expecting about 2 zips on my easyryder under the same 240 LED you got, but if it only gave 1 zip or a lil more, I'd still be happy.

imo i would NOT ''go a little over on the nutes'' under is always better...
also shake the nutes in the bottle like mad.
