    Default Gingers advice and confessions corner

    How's it going talkers. Just a little intro for the people who don't know me. I've been a member of this site for 7 years and when I joined I knew absolutely nothing about growing weed. Everything I've learnt has come from hours of reading and watching other people's grows. And now of course the trial and error of growing the plant we all love. Somehow way back when I joined I decided I wanted to grow the hydroponic way. I started off in a wilma in a wooden shed in my garden and managed some pretty reasonable harvests out of it despite no heating and less than favourable conditions. I've moved myself up to running an alien rdwc hydroponic system now inside the house where it's warmer and can control the conditions a bit better which is resulting in better crops each time.
    I've grown photos and auto flowering plants and although I've been lucky enough to not come up against any major issues I've competed against deficiencies and bugs in a few of my grows. I have only grown using Dutch pro nutrients and have gone through quite a few litres of the stuff so quite confident with it now.
    So if anyone needs any help with hydro or rdwc or nutrients used in hydro systems I'm here to help as best I can. And if I can't help then I'll help you find the answer as there's many a good person loitering in the hydro section always willing to help.
    I'm also an expert on divorce proceedings and I work a lot of night shifts so if anyone needs someone to chat to about anything at all then my ear hole is always open.(unless it's asking about me and jokers night out in the dam lol)

    Few pics of my past grows below . Iron man has kindly linked all my diaries in the other ginger thread so check them out if you wanna see some water grown ganja.

    Hey Ginger-Bud

    I have been considering trying the Hydro method and after having a read of your earlier diaries am considering giving the Wilma system a go. Am I right I?m thinking you never made any mods to your Wilma system? Have seen how this system can be modded to get more out of it but I?m useless with DIY so would struggle to do that.

    Hello mate , yeah the Wilma was unmodded and was great way to get started on hydro. The kit comes all together so will be ready to go straight out the box. Modding it turned it in to a dwc so will produce more but the basic system is perfect for getting started. Think it was around 18oz out my first run with the Wilma. Good luck mate

    If one were to go for a wilma . Might as well dwc right ginge ? Heck one can make a simple system out of 5gallon buckets and get 2x the weed for the same effort ?

    Yeah mate I’d go dwc now but if I was just starting out then it might be a bit overwhelming to get your head round it all. Was just thinking the Wilma might be a little more forgiving to a newb. And a self proclaimed diy hater lol
    Think my first Wilma 4 pot wasn’t much more than ?100 and the alien system is up in the ?1000s now so Wilma is good to get your feet wet if your starting out.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do like the look of these RDWC systems but hard to find any budget systems worth getting and my DIY skills are non existent.

    I had originally looked at water farms as thought 1 or 2 plants for first run would be more than enough but from the grows/info I?ve read on the two systems it seems topping up the res in a Wilma should be simpler if I?ve understood correctly.

    Does putting air stones in the Wilma count as a mod? Think I might be able to cope with that but not much else

    How simple a system we talking? Do you have any links that would be worth me reading?
