Perpetual Harvest Cabinet Plans... Suggestions/Advice?
    #678376 - 07/17/13 06:50 AM (3 years, 4 months ago)

Trying to get plans made out for an all-in-one cabinet. Wanted to run these by everyone here and see if everything checks out:



So, to make sure everything's clear:

The Flowering area is 3ft wide x 2.5ft deep x 4ft tall ~ 400w HPS
The Veg area is 2ft wide x 2.5ft deep x 2.5ft tall ~ 150w CFL or MH (Undecided, not sure if the MH will be in price range to begin with.)
The Clone area is 1ft wide x 2.5ft deep x 2.5 ft tall ~ 52w - 78w CFL

The plan is:

-Veg 3 females out.
-The best-performing one will have 3 clones taken from her, the other  two will go into flowering.
-The 3 clones will go into the cloning area, once rooted, the mother  will go over the hill. (Trash)
-Once all 3 clones are ready, veg and repeat.

Not looking for anything to make money on, I'd just like to keep myself in smoke.
Since I can blow through about 1.5 - 2oz a month, what is the reality (And I'm keeping in mind that there are variables, but just a rough guess.) that I can keep myself in smoke, and maybe even have some to put back once the next harvest comes around?
(I'd like to grow for a few months, smoking the entire time, and take a few months break with some stored back.)

If it helps, the setup would be 5 gal. containers for the flowering plants, Ocean Forest, entire 6-part Fox Farms nutrient line, SCRoG.

Sound reasonable/do-able?

You don't need to trash the mother. You can just keep vegging it indefinitely and keep cutting clones off there. You could potentially sell the cuttings you can't grow out - but if you expand your grow space to accomodate lots of small plants, then I think you can utilize most of the cuttings you would do every month or so.

My only worry is, and keep in mind I don't know the ins and outs of maintaining a mother, that space will be an issue quick. I'm afraid that I'd quickly run out of headroom, will have to keep upgrading container sizes, fight nute problems etc. the older it gets. Seems like it would cost more money and headache to keep one going than it would be to just keep re-cloning.

Ok, I'd keep the mother and take a bunch of cuttings off of her. No veg time for the cuttings once they root. That way you can do something like this with the flowering space.

By harvest this was over a 1/4 lb (closer to a half lb actually) and the space wasn't nearly as big as what your saying your flowering space is let alone that the sides of your space will be reflective.

If I planned on doing soil next round, I would try sog.
But I think I'm gonna give hydro a shot and after tallying everything up could swing a 5 gallon dwc setup to scrog 1 plant at a time with the whole nute line needed, but not a multi-site multi-flow setup yet, which is the end goal. :yesnod:

Two 10-gallon dwc tubs could be do-able though, which would fill in the space, and then just really pack in the clones.
Two mothers (preferably both clones from the same original plant, so they'll grow similarly in the sog setup.) in the top in soil.
Lose the side cloning space and just use old sgfc's for rooting clones in rockwool.
Idk sounds like it would work with a little planning, doesn't it?
