I appologise for not answering for 22 days @Johnnybsmokin.
In all honesty the past 4 or so months have humbled me as a grower so much that I almost quit altogether let alone posting about it.
My system crashed with some pretty nasty root rot of some sort and I just couldnt kick it.
The problem most likely could have been prevented or stopped in its tracks if I just wasnt so stubborn to spend money on running the air conditioner 24/7 because I always knew the reservoir water was too warm but decided H2O2 would solve all my problems... boy was I wrong.
Well the aircon has been on for a few weeks now and things are looking up so hopefully in 6 or so weeks I might actually get a harvest of some sort.
A few weeks after my problems started I decided to go all out and put some seeds in for an emergency guerilla grow and planted 80 something seeds in beer cups... 50 of those are out in the wilderness and 24 made it into my cabinet to sex and after a quick sexing 16 of them stayed to flower on a board atop my hydroponics tray.
Everything seems to be going great except that now it seems the hydro side of things has improved making me wonder whether I should continue with it or the soil... for now the soil wins and maybe come winter the flood drain tray will come back into use.
Cups for days...
My shame is starting to dissipate.
Happy Days ... I havnt said that for quite a few weeks.
