    Surf & Turf w/ Blueberry & Cherry Pie

    Welcome to my 3rd grow. I will doing a side by side with Hydro and Living soil. Still have a lot to learn but I though some of y'all might want to follow along. A wise man once told me to teach, so here we go. Hopefully someone will learn something along the way, including myself. I'll do my best to explain everything but if I miss something please feel free to speak up. This style of growing might not be for everyone but it's the direction I chose to best suit my situation. Buckle up and enjoy the ride it might get bumpy, I killed half the last grow. All plants will be trained using the BU2B PPP Method as close as possible. Soil is Great Lakes "just add water" in 7 gallon bags. Hydro is DWC with a little ebb and flow in 5 gallon buckets, 6 inch Rizocore net pots w/ clay pellets and 2 2inch air stones in each bucket. This will be a sealed grow raining Co2 from above. Exhaust and Intake fans will only be used if something comes up. I started a few weeks ago, so I'll do my best to get you caught up. Thanks for following along.

          Smoklahoma thanks for doing this! It was our plan when we started the Purple Bubba grow. The nice thing is that they are coming from the same place, same training, same environment. EXCELLENT! I'll be following along with eager anticipation and watching the process unfold. Great choice of some tasty strains as well!

          Seems I'm burning BB in soil a bit. Dropped lights to 350 ppfd over left side. Watered 1/2 gallon each. Hydro is at 1400 ppm on both sides. Not much happening right now. Couple days they get stripped. Click image for larger version

            This morning a couple hours before the lights went out. All the plants got stripped for training, except for runt bb that got topped at the 3rd node. Soil bb stretched quite a bit, but thats what I get for not transplanting. All the bb have long spacing between nodes compared to the cp. So far so good. 88° / 65% Click image for larger version

              Topped off reservoirs to 25 gal each. Added nutes to the difference between week 2 and week 3 strength. Watered 1/2 gal each straight well water to soil plants. Started training all except runt. Adjusted water level in hydro plants to 3 inches below net pots. Click image for larger version
