The Official DIY Thread
    #10021 - 04/23/08 03:13 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'll start

This is a 9qt oil pan ($6.17)

Here is my small recirculating top feed tables. I use two of these to suport my flowering chamber, they can hold (6) 6" square pots, or (2) 8.5" (2.5Gal) square pots.


This is a small aquarium water pump (listed @ 153gph, but not even close, $20). Attached is standard 1/2" tubing, and i created a distribution manifold, with (1) tee and (4) elbows. I tap off of the manifold with 1/4" elbows and 1/4" tubing. The length of 3/4 pvc is only there, to give the tubing some rigidity.


Here it is standing, after i moved some plants around. The extra hole in the corner is basically just an extra port. I keep a spare pump, so i can easily change the solution, without moving the containers.

thanks, this is a better place for the thread.



'Grow' fans are unbelievably overpriced(along with everything else 'grow' related). Rather than spend $100+ dollars on a 256cfm Dayton Blower, you can go to walmart and buy a Stanley Blower Fan ($40), which moves the exact same amount of air.

Here is a picture, i have also attached a 6" register duct ($6 Home Depot), The Register end of the duct was cut with snips to fit snugly over the output side of the fan.


Here i've also attached a 90 degree elbow to the input.


a couple more angles




DIY FTW

250W HPS, a little over 100 cfm from the fan, and I traded out that DWC for some good 'ol organic soil.

I've got one or two pics from when my plant was tiny and a little shocked from transport (I got my clones in a plastic bag when it was snowing :rolleyes:). They're about 1.5 weeks into flower right now, I'll take a pic for you tomorrow when the lights come back on.

You'll get better pics if you take them using the flash with lights off. I try and always take pics with the lights off for that reason.

Well, my camera is on my phone, so it sucks enough that it really doesn't matter when I take the pictures.... I need to get a better camera for this though, I feel half the fun of growing might be the photography

Anyhow, this is Afghani Trainwreck, I LST'd the hell out of her, so she ended up a little spindly, but for a first grow I'm pretty happy so far.

I see this acronym a lot but I still haven't come across what it actually means, so what is LST? :smile:

If you look right above the top of the pots in there you can see the strings I tied to the stem of the plant to pull it to different sides.
It was going to simply grow straight up like a standard plant, but I pulled the top of the plant 90 degrees so it was forced to form 3-4 new "tops" which then all grew vertically. I kept tying it over until the entire bottom of my cabinet was full, let it grow about 6" vertical, then flowered.
It works out pretty well though, that's only 1 plant I have in there right now, but it takes up as much floor space as 2-3
