Operation In The Works...

Hello, I'm very turned on by the Vertical Grow set-up's I've been seeing online, however I have a few crucial questions before I get started. Basically, I need to know if the hydroponic rock wells are the way to go, if not, please let me know what is better / more effective. Second, I'm a "newbie" to the cultivation of anything, and I'm unsure if there is a special strain of marijuana I should purchase in order to grow properly in a Vertical grow in which everything appears to be cramped together and fairly short..., start with clones? I really like the idea of having less lights, I had originally intended on running about 10 1000w, the good ol' fashioned way. I was going to do about 100 plants(legally of coarse), does anyone have a layout or design OR suggestions of the most effective & efficient way to do so? Any and all replies will be appreciated. Thank you & regards!

Doing a vertical grow ur first grow would probably be difficult.

 

You shouldn't need any hydro rocks. Should just be 2" net pots with neoprene collars.

 

If you haven't seen his grows already... Heath Robinson, vertical grow.

Well, you do mention 'legally', and given the context of this forum I think we need to lean toward larger plants than many of the vertical wall-of-green grow styles call for. I'm happy to sacrifice a real high performance in terms of grams / watt in favor of a higher ratio of grams / plant. One of my strains ends up at around 5-6 ounces per plant, leaving me plenty of room in my plant count for clones and vegging plants.<br><br>edit: Anybody that has seen Heath Robinson's projects would definitely want to do things his way, right now, without considering other options.  He's a wonderful designer and a real grower, but hasn't had to deal with plant count limits.<br>

first of all...10 1000watt for 100 plants? you wont be able to flower them all at once 'the legal way' anyhow. if you are new to growing cannabis DO NOT use hyrdo. go with soil until you learn more about the plant and its tendencies. i would go to a local grow shop and talk to someone about a set-up. there is sooo much to learn. check out bubblegrowers info...he seems to take the time to help folks very well. im just too impatient. good luck.

 

oh and if your near west michigan there is a grow store in Rothbury that specializes in grow room set-ups.
