I offer for your consideration;

The first 3 Pics are of the pond liner I installed in the grow room to guard against leaks (and it's a good thing I did) I have had to replace buckets a few times due to leaks. I thought I was screwing up the drilling of holes but.....I figured out why they kept leaking. The weight of the water/nutes and the plants makes the bottom of the buckets bow down causing small cracks where the holes were drilled. I fixed this by taping pennies to the bottoms of the buckets so they couldn't sag down anymore....VIOLA!.....fixed

Pic 4 is a general look at the room

Pic 5 is one of 3 risers I made to hold the buckets off the floor. The "legs" are 8" x 3/4" bolts, with nuts and washers above and below the 3/4" plywood painted white. The legs are adjustable because the floor is sloped towards a floor drain in another room.

Pic 6 is just the buckets with the grommet and nipple.

Pic 7 the buckets and table assembled. the fill/drain hose is angled from back to front to enable maximum drainage.

Pic 8 is a recycle container I'm using as my brain bucket.

Pic 9 is my flood and drain module with all the sensors (new toy)

Pic 10 is the brain bucket assembled. I had to cut and extend the sensor wires because the module is envisioned for a 5 gallon bucket. They really should make wire extenders for peeps that break the barriers.

Pic 11 is the control module mounted on the wall. I have it on a heavy duty picture/mirror hanger so when I break down the room for cleaning I can take everything out (except the pond liner.).

Now the Plants. Suffice to say I almost lost them due to fans going out and temps hitting over 120f. I chopped them all down from 2' to 4" the only one I lost was a Chemical Nightmare from gardentroll , it really sucked because I just had the one, I replaced it with a Nurse Larry.

Pic 12 Larry x Larry these beans were a gift from @orangesunshine. The one in the foreground is looking best, but the other 2 are coming along.

Pic 13 Larry x Larry, you can see how short they are compared to the first one, but still hanging in there.

Pic 14 The center row are Satori x Double Purple Doja. These beans were a gift from Mr. Whipple , nice plants no doubt.

Pic 15 This is a Satori x DPD that for some reason is variegated??? It's totally healthy, just mottled leaves. I've taken clones to try outdoors, it provides it's own camouflage. Anyone who saw it would not think marijuana, that's a good thing to hide in your landscape. It's my favourite plant this grow.

Pic 16 these are Nurse Larry’s I was gifted from Rosebud . The first one is a little short because it came to the room late, it's the replacement for my Chemical Nightmare.


This is a new set up for me, so there's still things to iron out and tinker with, but all in all I like it.

Thanks Sm, but you don't need a comfy chair, I got barstools. The spinning kind with backs on them so you don't get wasted and fall on the floor.....

Does that liner create any extra heat down low?...Looks like a Banging OP....

I don't believe it affects the amount of heat in the room, if so it's not by much. I had a white plasti/canvas in there and the temps were the same. Reflection was better but I didn't like the sound when I walked on it.....

No didn't Fim them. When they were about to go into flower I had a power failure to my exhaust fan that all most killed them so I cut them from 2' down to 4" (I didn't think they'd come back) so they've grown very bushy and have filled the 6 x 8 space. It's just wall to wall weed.

Day 50

We're getting close.

Pic. 1; What I see when I open the door

Pic 2; Same view, but without the HPS

Pic 3, 4, and 5; The Larry x Larry (Larry's a attention whore...)

Pics 6 and 7; Whip's wonders (aka Satori x Double Purple Doja). These are definitely the fullest and are taking on an aroma that makes them stand out, don't know how to describe it other than mmmmmmmm.

Pic 8; Rosebud Nurse Larry, gotta' love a fat girl.

No denying it, you guys gifted some great beans....you rock!!!

Hey friend, they average about 4 1/2 feet tall from the top of the grow rocks. Thanks for looking in.
