    Cool First attempt at DWC recirc - blue cheese autos

    Well after my NFT success I thought I'd give recirc DWC a go and ordered a cheap egay kit - basement lighting type with a flexi tank.

    Ordered some Big buddah Blue cheese autos while drunk last night from attitude - when did herbies become cash or bank transfer only???? and when did dinafem discontinue blue cheese?!?!?!?!

    Might as well start a diary, again will be using....
    2x parabolic reflectors with omega dual spectrums and 600w digital ballasts with super lumens.
    rhino pro 250x1000mm
    tri-meter style ec/ph monitor
    250mm RKV on a temp/speed controller
    18" 3 speed fan
    2x res heater
    hailea hc100a water chiller
    aquarium wave maker ( for mixing nutes daily but especially on weekly tank changes )

    Nutrients will be the usual from me....
    Atami rootbastic
    Growth technology Ionic grow hydro
    Growth technology Ionic bloom hydro
    Growth technology liquid oxygen
    Growth technology liquid silicone ( also a great PH up )
    Growth technology PH down
    Growth technology green fuse bloom

    Lets get this DWC shit on the road!

    its one of these.....
    Looks cheap and is tbf compared to some - if it works well I might go for the bigger alien better looking ones or possibly even build something. At the moment I just dont have the time tbh.

    If anyone has any experience with these I would be grateful

    There's another guy on here using same setup.

    The recirc pipes look a little small but as long as you keep them clear it should be fine.

    Also make sure you have a good air pump mate.

    Just turn the plants every few days and the roots shouldnt block the return pipes.
    I wouldnt use the Ionic green fuse in this system.I know yer man willl blab on about how good it is, but its not suited to hydro, its more for soil growers
    Its got organic compounds in it and will fuck up your root zone. I know because i used it before, as did a mate.

    Good luck with them

    Correct mate.

    Lots of people scrog with dwc because the plants can't be moved and with rdwc it's easier to change Nutes with plants stuck into a screen.

    I'm only on my first scrog and rdwc so can't really advise how good either are yet but the results I've seen from other growers are quality.

    You dont want to scrog them, because that means you wont be able to turn the plants to keep the roots out of the return pipes.

    I just stick my hand in and feel for the return pipe to move any roots that are down it.

    I am using 20 litre pots..... I soon need to cut the recirc pipes and wondered, approx what space do I need to leave between the centers of the pots?

    depends on your growspace and how long you are p[lanning vegging for. to give you an idea i used to do 8 plants in a 2.4 by 2.4 tent, and before tht i did 4 in a 2.4 BY 1.2 tent but 3 would have filled it better, so about 600mm centre to centre. Thats decent sized, 8-12 ounce plants done on a 4 week veg.
    These were in 60 or 84 litre totes with big air pump for the stones and spray bars from a big water pump.
    I watched the demo vid of your system, and i reckon if you have any spare air pumps, then get them in there. more the merrier, up to a point (DO saturation point that is)
