Hi all!! Great to be back after a nice summer...I'm still smoking my last harvest I decided I need to begin this journal now because it is clear I will need help and reassurance as I go. Please keep an eye on my first step into hydroland. The pics attached show the Wilma set up. Wierd...and a little worrying! Everywhere else I see drippers that ring around each plant. My system says that I can either flood or drip..depends which medium I choose. I just had to change the nozzle. Thing is it doesn't look like much of a flood!! Oh yes!! Very important: At the moment my timer floods the system for 15 minute intervals four times over 24 hours. Does that sound sensible? Take a look at the tube I lifted out of the hydroton: the water flows out of the holes at the top of the blue bit and runs down the spines. It gets the bit around it wet, but everywhere else appears to stay dry...makes no difference where in the pot you put it. Nowhere on GC can I find anyone else who has used this system...uh oh!! Right then: I germinated four seeds and one died when trying to open. I have another taprooted and in the propogation cubes you can see in the pics. The little seedlings are rooted in the propogation block which I then inserted into a soaked rockwool cube and into the hydroton. There are, of-course, no nutes in the water, but there is some ph up and down in it. Six was my last reading. I'm letting it go just to observe for the moment and also want to avoid putting more ph down in when they are so tiny. I am using tap water with all the chlorine evaporated. Lighting...Dammit!!! This issue has been a bit frustrating! I've forked out wedge on a cfl for the early stage of growth because I have read and been told that 400W MH is too much for young plants. But there have been problems waiting for missing bits and then the bulb fusing straight away. Now I'm waiting for a replacement and meanwhile I have roast seedlings....! They seem all right, but it's warm. (You can see the temp) Those are the main issues so far. My set up: In line fan with filter Large desktop fan PC intake fan 400W MH/HPS 125W cfl (well soon anyway) Wilma Four Pot System (using hydroton, rockwool) Flood Ph truncheon...CF truncheon Canna nutes Trying 18/6 lighting time for veg. Oh!!! I'm growing White Russian! again Please please keep an eye on me and help me if you can. GC was a godsend on my first soil grow! Any questions?
