It's that time again, kids... finally gettin back to bitness! It's been quite some time since I've posted a journal, so here it goes! I'm also excited about the "Schroomy's Original Diesel x Purple Urkle" beans I'm about to pop. woot woot!!! The system is a very easy and very cheap one to put together... the buckets were free, the res is cheap, the most expensive part was the pump, and since I salvaged it from a fountain never used, it doesn't get cheaper. Hands down this is by far the easiest system to maintain. No res changes until harvest... check nute levels weekly, add when needed. I do not own a TDS meter... if you know how to 'read the need' of your girls, they are an un-needed expense. Once the system is up and running, it will run about a week to build up the benificial bacteria that will thrive in the root zone. Cuts will be taken and placed DIRECTLY into the buckets to root. In a matter of a few weeks, 3-5 basically, flowering will commence. The girls are a DJ Short/Breeder Steve project from a few years back... grown from seed and flowered out, then harvested the bud and repotted the girls and began re-vegging for cuts... When I can get the bottom of my closet set up with T5s, it will be where I'll grow the Purple Urkle. I'm psyced about that!
