  1. This will be my 3rd grow. My first two grows were done using a flood and drain system with good results. This time I will be growing Northern Lights. Wanted to go with aeroponics to try something a little different. Check out the pics and let me know what you think. If anyone sees anything that could be a potential problem with what I have built let me know. Also check out the home made air scrubber I made too. The water pump is a 185gph.

  4. I think it looks amazing! +rep to you!
  5. Thanx for the comments. Will be starting in the next few weeks.
  6. So how about telling us a little bit more about the system?

    Where did you get the nozzles? What are all the different components?

    I assume the bottom tub is the reservoir and the upper tub will just hold the roots.
  7. <TABLE class=tborder id=post143605 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%" align=center border=0><TBODY><TR vAlign=top><TD class=alt1 id=td_post_143605> The sprayers are microjets bought off the internet. I plan on growing from seed and vegging for about a week, then going straight into flower. I want to keep then fairly small. I have limited height about 60". That's why I went with the smaller tubs. I will be using general hydroponics 3 part nutrient and liquid koolbloom for flower. I also planning on flushing the entire system with florakleen at every resirvoir change(every 7-10 days or so), to break up any accumulated salts. I also have a 400 watt air cooled hps I'll be using during the flowering cycle. Fluros during seedling stage and veg. I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions on how long to run the spayers for? I have heard several different opinions and I'm leaning towards 24/7. I will post more pics once I start growing. Also how strong of a smell does Northern Lights put off?

  8. i would run the sprayers on for like 5 min off for 15. the main idea is to keep an ideal enviroment for the roots if u have too much water in there and the roots are just saturated its no different than a drip system. also how much psi does ur pump run at?
