After years of fun with hydroponics, I finally got my hands laid on this promising piece from General Hydroponics - the RainForest… Single vortex sprayer is practically maintenance free and allows balanced irrigation to all plants… Lid is divided into 6 compoments. There are three possible versions: single plant per component, 3 sites per component and 6 sites per component. For my setup 3 sites per component were used, totaling to 18 plants.
I’ve got some clones preselected from Mandala Seeds. Two strains - Hashberry and White Satin, both luckily indica dominant (though not single-cola dominant), which will fit Sea of Green style nicely… In RF hexagonal form there is inner circle - 6 plants of White Satin and outer circle - 12 Hashberry plants.
It only took 5 days to let their roots reach bottom of RF and after that I’ve switched to 12/12.
My favourite nutrients were used - Hydrogarden Vitalink dilluted to 1/3 of recommended dose. pH kept under 5.5. Temps: 24 celsius during day, 21 celsius at night.
Cabinet is pretty small and temps are crucial to keep under 24 in hydroponics/aeroponics so air-cooled 600W hood is used.
