    New Year, New Grow, Jack Herer DWC

    Going to try auto's this year. Address some of the issues that popped up last year.

    New rebuilt totes, had to have better draining, access etc. Selected 8 gal High Rise Pro's from Hefty, but you can use anything really.

    Stuck one seed in the grow block just to test, it did sprout but in the future will soak the seeds.

    Used a "spitter" method of bring water up from the container until roots have formed enough to use the water in the tote. Using a spitter this year because of the heat generated from the pump.

    Everything rolls out to be serviced, and poles are mounted in each corner of the roll out for netting attachment. They are long now but will be trimmed.

    Currently only PH correct water and 1/4 strength GH RapidStart

    Ran out of space on first post, here are the rest of the tote completion. I'm pretty sure there are simpliar designs, but it works for me.
    Have to simplfy the drain, to many parts and the elbow does not fit correctly, will rethink.

          Building second DWC tote, for two more seeds in about 2 weeks. Should be able to harvest every 5 or six weeks, based on the wifes grow and the test above. Spitter system is working much better than having the pump inside, water temp is stable. Will need to attach the end of both hoses to the net pots. The vibration from the pump and the surging water has them pulling out once in a while.

              It lived, but the bottom leaves looks a bit "Distressed" I will post on Day 21, but its doing great, reason I'm setting up the second grow but doubled up. When this one flowers, I will replace the top with a double. Should finish me up just in time to go fishing.

            Day 20 for my test grow Jack Herer.
            Using 1/3 of recommended dosage currently, but will start moving up next week.
            Amazing how fast the roots developed, beginning to like the top fed system
            The bottom leaves were damaged in the process of shrugging off the helmet, it really stretch out while doing it. Once the helmet was off, it took off.
            Still out on topping it, but if I do will next week.

                I think we harvested it early, back yard party kind of thing. Still, a couple of buds off the bottom was a great smoke. Growing Jack indoors now, while curing the brides. We will weigh after a month of burping and compare when I'm done with the DWC grow.

                It seems to be doing ok, the roots are just not anything I have seen before. This is the first top fed I have done, so that may be it. Going to start a couple of GS Auto's in a couple of weeks and compare. May go back to regular seeds and clones next year.

                  I’m growing one of my plants that way. Topped it above 3rd node and otherwise only defoliating for bud sites. It’s going to be a bush! My others are pretty defoliated, though. I love defoliating for some reason!

                  Just finished harvesting, I will grow this again but in a slightly bigger space and take off one more "layer" from the bottom up. Most of the side branches fit well in the screen and I supercropped the ones that just got to close to the lights. Was a great grow

                #13
                Had to take a little vaca and miscalculated the amounts the plant would soak up, it looks a little peaked. Pretty sure PH whacked out, hoping a flush and new nutrients will get it back on track.

                  Hope so, would of thought they would be flowering better at day 50, but that's why its a test grow, to get the base lines.

                  You lollipopped higher than I have the guts for lol. I’m actually going to prune some sucker branches, but otherwise going to avoid taking buds sites, even if they’re lower. With good light penetration they can still amount to something, maybe?

                  I think you'll get good colas.

                  s62 For me, the problem with shorter colas is that they don't get into the light "sweet spot"; they don't develop as well as the taller colas because the level of light they receive is inferior. I pull out my lux meter and I can see that they aren't in the sweet spot.

                  So I left a lot of shorter colas on my current grow, but on the next one, I'm really gonna strive to have all the colas the same height when I switch them, and not keep any shorter ones that don't fully make it into the sweet spot.

                  s62 I think I would of took on more layer, but you are right. the side branches that were able to get light did really well. I spaced them out via the screen, but run out of room. It tumble weeded on me :-)
