So i just made and started a hydroponic set up . Just starting off with two 5 gallon buckets . its a deep culture setup so i have water flow on the top that wets the roots (when i finally get roots) then cycles on the bottom and back into the main 5 gallon bucket where the pump is. My question to you all is, Do i need to keep the air rocks on while there just seedlings ? there are no roots exposed yet there only about 1 inch tall. Or is it a good idea to keep them on so the water has oxygen? thanks for any help. Ill add some photos
I think everyone should start a post when they start a new grow... After all, every grow is an experiment unless you have some very expensive control factors to em like perfect cloning and environmental control!! So I cleared a grow w/ the roomie. The setup: The same as always of course guys c'mon, a 3x3 tent, 200 cfm squirrel fan w/ carbon filter inside, the same 2 little fans, and all holes in tent covered by carbon filters. Room temperature, usually 40-60% rH indoors. I was thinking about doing just one plant this time. Usually I do multiple plants because as a newer grower I may fail with one plant and succeed with another, which worked well for me. But with some more experience with growing indoor plants in general and the exotic marijuana plant, I was considering doing just 1 and trying to get a bigger yield. I may do 2 plants. I have many seeds to choose from so I wasn't considering getting a clone. I have random outdoor seeds from my friends that I love their outdoor (unnamed seeds), and many seeds from random clubs over the years. The freshest are the unnamed seeds and the others are anywhere from less than a year to a couple years old or so. I have the following strains and would take advice if anyone has any! : cannatonic, kosher kush, blue cookies, pre-98 bubba, mendo purple glue, crumpets, and platinum OG. And of course my buddies random outdoor strains. I was also considering autoflowers if I can find the genetics somehow. I've heard of really good things. I could maybe get a fast succession going cloning them going if I can make a small veg room as well. They complete their cycles very quickly so that could be a neat succession. Any opinions?
