So, my 5 gallon reservoir lasts about 6-7 days!
Today I pulled the res off to see just how much was left (it was getting light) and there was only about 1/2 gallon left.
I mixed up a new batch, increased to 25g of Megacrop to 5 gallons,
This gave me a ppm of 950ish, and 1.9ish ec. Ph'd down till it was 5.8 (roughly 20ml of ph down again)
I'm loving this setup, wouldn't change a thing except maybe having fancier plumbing. Lifting the bucket full of nutes 5 foot off the ground is kind of a pain in the ass but so Is bending over to check on plants. No regrets!
Today is day 24.5F and I'm setting a tentative deadline of 30 more days until I even think about harvesting. that will make almost 8 weeks/(56 days or so) I have a feeling the Auto will probably for sure be ready to chop by then, it's gonna be airy bud for sure because that driverless cob sucks haha but it'll still be smoke.
Since everyone was talking about where they grew up,
I grew up in Kansas, close to Wichita, in 1999 we moved to the ozarks and I don't regret it one bit. I was in high school and i'll say the culture shock of going from a big city life to rural farm life was a lot to adapt too.
