  4. that's y I'm asking g what I should set up now for big ladys
     
  5. The plastic PVC pipe is a leak waiting to happen , been there and done that ..
    The reason why I use large totes is because its a large amount water and I can make each tote 100% self contained .
    My system doesn't have the normal problems that Most RDWC systems have .
    Those problem are restricted root space .roots clogging up drain system , roots growing together ,
    External leaks , and one sick plant making the rest of the plants sick .

    Right now I have a weird plant problem , I have a white widow that wants to die everytime I give it nutrients .
    If that plant would be in a common RDWC system where more then one plant is in the system that plant would die.
    Because system is not connected to more then one plant I flushed the plant and brought it back to life .
    My point is its nice to be able to take a plant out of the system without having a effect on the other plants .

    My system works because I am growing larger indoor plants .

    PS the Plastic 5 inch by 5 inch square plastic PVC fence posts works better then the round PVC pipe .
    Look Up general Hydroponics AF 20 if you don't already know the system .

    My plants in certain stages of growth can and will use up to 6 gallons of water per plant .
    I am single and a big part of my life is traveling around.
    If I used a smaller reservoir I couldn't leave the house for anything over 2 to 3 days tops .
    Right now I don't have to attend to my plants but every 3 to 4 days .
    I change the water in my totes every 10 days .
    That is standard changing the water every 7 to 10 days .
    Good luck

  6. I was in the hospital for most of a 100 days straight .
    It was the best I could do to save the plants .
    Yes they are to tall . This time.
    I have two 4x8 budding tents and one walk in veg closet
    My favorite strain is a 10 to 12 week flowering cycle
    So I dont have a issue rolling in a new plant into the budding tent that is already 3onths old.
    I need to sharpen my trading skills
     
  7. sorry you were in the hospital. to that point dude you did an awesome job!! if that ever happened to me i would have to shut the lights. props to your people who kept you going!!!
