Kraven the Bunker

Those of you who know me well know that I switched to full automation and commercial LED’s about 1.5 years ago and have never looked back. Here is a few pic’s of the Bunker crunk up…then and now …Peace

Nice… So the footprint of grow area is the concrete ceiling we can see on first photo?

With automation in place, how often do you check the spot?

First thank you very much for stopping by my little corner of the world. I really appreciate the kind words.

  1. I have 2 flower area’s 4’ x 4’ covered with a 520w [1k hps direct replacement] Illumitex NeoSol dimmable fixture [f3 spec] each 4’ x 4’ area averages about 1.74 gpw or just a little under 2lbs per 35 days.

  2. I run 2 mega gardens for veg on a 2x4x7 shelf with 2 NeoSol LS Light bars 55w [100w hid direct replacement]. I run a CAP ebb/flow 18 site w/ a 40 gal rez and ATO [automatic top off from the R/O filter] as long as I don’t have problems I can leave it for a week without checking in on it…great for the many trips I take. I run a Sentinel Controller that runs C02 / air/ humidity/ heat so that I set the climate and never have touched it since I got dialed in a year ago.

  3. Yes sir, i gas them @ 1300 in the Bunker…it is 100% air tight so veg also benefits from the elevated levels. Things move fast in there.

Yes sir, two 4x4 flower areas in a 5x9x8 room and a veg / rez room thats 5x6x8

I check it daily, it is in my back yard…but can go up to a week as long as there are no problems.

Thank you for the compliment. Peace

Yea the hurricane last year broke the 2.5 ton A/C …tree landed on it…no power for 6 days and PM then hit me…was an ugly turn :joy:

Here is how it all started…

Yes sir them are the ones. I run two in flower. They are pretty strong so I start them at the flip at 50% and go up 10% each day to 100% to harden them off. I up pot and flip them the same day also so if they had a good root system then maybe no need to harden them off. :peace:
