hydro VS dirt?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone.  I am currently growing in pro mix hp.  im thinking about switching to hydro.  This will be my first experience trying hydro.  what would be the best way to start/build a hydro system that is not going to cost me alot of money?

Have to remember  about hydro you need power to keep the water flowing  if you suffer a power outage in soil you can survive a day or so  in hydro your screwed unless you have a generator but if you are determined to make a change they have  bubble buckets  that are reasonably cheap .

Hempy buckets are a great way to get into hydro and they do not require electric. Checkout my pics. I couldn't imagine growing any other way. It's just too easy.

Baby got trunk. Hash plant from feminized seed vegged for 60 days.

Below the canopy we keep things tidy and need.

Two 1000 watt lights over the canopy.

Last harvest of my maui waui. Great strain. Beautiful purple color from genetics by an Oregon breeder, Jefferson State Seed Co. I kept a mother of her. Cut clones 4 weeks into flower. Took 4 weeks to get her to re veg, but now she's mine forever :)

I water all my ladies in the flower room with my water wand and pump. Makes watering day much easier. I'm no fan of hauling buckets.

I've done soil with great results. I've done and continue to do hydro with great results. I stay with this system because of the high yield output and high quality of the flowers it produces. As you can see there are no air lines or water lines running to my buckets. If the power goes out my lights won't fire, but my plants will not die like DWC, NFT, or flood and drain. Hempy buckets rock!

Nice! Dig the hempys! I have thought about them for a long time, but never tried. Are you using 100%perlite? How often do you need to water? What is the best way to support in hempy without trelis, do stakes hold? Hope you don't mind the ?s, just Been interested for a long time.
