Hey all, I’ve been going back and forth in my head about setting up a drip system for a 20 plant SOG in 1 gallon square pots with HP Promix for the medium.
The reason I want to use Promix and not coco is, I don’t want it to drain as quickly as coco does.
I will be doing 12 and 12 from seed with this as well.
I will hand water till about the 3rd week, and by then I notice that they average around 2 liters every 3 days, up to week 3 of flower then they like 2 liters every 2 days
So I would like some help trying to figure this out. I don’t want to flood and drain either, I would like to just be able to put the timer on once every 3 days and give them their 2 liters if that’s possible, and just have a little run off, to make sure they are getting fully saturated.
So this way I can just keep the tent closed and no smell escapes the tent.
I will also be getting a pump sprayer for the initial hand waterings, so I can just pop my hand in there and give them a spray instead of taking them out and feeding from the bottom like I have been doing.
I asked Mr. Sparkle for advise last night and he was willing, but I kinda flip flopped on him and said I’ll just use a sprayer… Now I changed my mind again…lol
I like the thought of being able to go away at times and not have to worry about them drying out.
Here’s what I was looking at from Amazon, let me know what you think and how I should go about it, I will get 2 as they are only good for up to 10 plants and I hope to have close to double that, each time.
One great thing that I really like about this, is it has a battery back up, so if the power goes out, it will still work.
This is the main reason I haven’t tried any type of hydro, because a little rain or wind in this city and the damn power goes out…
Here’s the sprayer I’m looking at as well, never used one of these either, so any tips with this would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance for info and help!
