www.facebook.com/D3peppers/ - Dude....f**k your Demonic goat right in the ass. That thing lit my ass up worse than the red brainstrain I had earlier this year. It started out bitter, then went to straight up rape my face heat.

Hey mate, great Glog so far,

 

How come you've scrapped the DWC setup? Were you having issues with it? I've just started mine so looking for all the advice I can get.

Oh just what gear you're using and where in Perth you are getting the nutes and stuff...

 

This is my system at the moment;

Made that on Monday, so still very early days...

 

Well I guess I'll list what I'm unsure of at the moment;

- Did you need to worry much about water temp being in Perth? 

- What strength nutes did you use? and what type/s

- Where about was the water lvl up to the pots.

ah nice, looks you have a re-circulation system there which is alot better just requires more plumbing and stuff, i was thinking of doing that at some stage also :D

I dont worry about the temperature at all because its in a room that stay really cool all the time for some reason so its fine, where you have your set up you wont have to worry about the temps unless it gets really really hot and humid in therem and you can also use a fan on the plants also.

I run 2 air pumps with 4 ports, so 4 air stones in the tub. more air the merrier haha but 1 if fine also.

i found using the general hydroponics 3 part solution was the best, atm im using a normal chilli nutrient that works well just because i have some still left over from a while ago, and with the nutrient you add in 2 boosters which ill link here and thats it, with the strength of the nutes its all on the bottle from seedlings to fully grown ect ect its really easy to do, also make sure your water PH is around 5.5 to 6.5 using a ph tester, and you use the PH up and PH down products to adjust.

With the water level ive always put it up as far as i can so it dosnt over flow, once your roots are really long you can fill it lower, just make sure your net pot is submerged and your clay balls are wet and youre all good.

I go to a place called "hydro hill" pretty new place and awesome stuff hes got literally  EVERYTHING you need.

Ahh thanks for all that, yeah I'm going to pop into a hydro shop in my area (Midland-ish way) and see what they have but Ill try get the three GH nutes, 

 

I'll take some pics of the plumbing in mine to show you, but super simple design, drew up a paint schematic so you get the idea :)

But yeah so I guess with that I just cut the drain shorter to lower the water level? 

 

Thanks for all the info... Keep the glog updated so I can keep learning :)

did you get the hose and parts to seal onto the buckets for no leaks from bunnings?

Yeah all from Bunnings, I get a tiny leak in one of the joins (like a drip every hour or so) but that's no big deal, I'll just chuck some thread tape around it and it should solve the issue.

 

But was actually surprised that I didn't need to use any silicon actually.

Some fresh root growth from the DWC, when i put them into the new net pots and tub i had to trim some of the roots so the wernt visable, a week or so later im getting big fast root growth from all the plants :)

They might look a bit dirty atm thats just because of the nutrient im using atm it can get a bit green.

Things look great down there, Jiri - makes me yearn for the Spring/Summer

to arrive here.  I always enjoy looking at the Aussie grows during our winter.

There's always a chili pod ripening somewhere in the world   :D

 

The new root growth on those hydro plants look very promising...
