Rhizosystem XL mentored by Bulls

Post by WeedJunkie » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:19 am

Well troops lets try this again hopefully in the right place this time lol. Do iv ditched the RDWC and bought a Rhizosystem XL Drip and Drain 4 pot. Bulls has graciously decided to take me under his wing and show me the ropes Image

Below I have listed all my equipment -

Sealed stealthy attic grow room roughly 2.0 x 2.0 m with discreet entrance ImageImage (height is an issue roughly 2m height at the peak)

- Rhizosystem XL drip and drain
- 1 viperspectar 600watt led (will be upgrading to second CDM)
- 1 CMD grow light with maxibright ballast and horizon hood
- ecotechnics enviromental controller
- 2kw fan heater (connected controller)
- 6inch RVK diffusair with fresh air intake (connected controller)
- 6inch RVK carbon filter extraction kit (connected controller)
- humidifier
- hygrometer
- dehumidifier
- hanging tower fan
- 2m x 2m scrog frame and net
- essentials ph ec meter
- essential calibration fluid

I have a chiller as well in case I have to keep my nutrient solution at a certain temperature

Think that is everything

Medium - canna coco professional plus

30L Rhizo pots and 1L rhizo propagation pots

Nutrients -

Plant magic root stim
Canna coco A + B
Vita link cal mag
Hammerhead pk
Growth technology liquid silicon
Ecothrive Charge
Ecothrive biosys
Canna organic ph down (ordered)
(Still have to find an organic ph up or what ever you think I should use)



Seeds - hitting seed store in the morning thinking cheese or something of similar profile

I also am building a purpose built propagation tent wih -

CFL light (getting in morning)
Humidifier
Oscillating fan
4 inch ram extraction fan

System arrived today without the Rhizostands lol Image so will update with more pics once I have it’s all set up tomorrow night and when I also have the propagation tent all set up

Never heard of organic pH down... Presume it's just lemon juice or something

Yeah lol never use pH up mate. Use root stimulator or liquid silicone to bring the pH if needed. Good luck with building the system. Make sure you have a jug of boiling hot water constantly to fit the pipes. Remember measure 3 times and cut only once. Don't forget to remove the red caps of the brain on the inlets you're gonna use. The rest should stay in place. The brain should be at the same level as the stands, perfectly one idea lower. The outlet pipe of the brain should lead to a drain or bigger water storage unit , I use 80 storage box. Good luck

30L Rhizo pots are you sure these are needed. 30l pots can sure grow some trees with this size pot. Using smaller air pots might be a good idea and save you some money on coco.

I told him that 30 is overkill.
15 l airpots in that space be plenty.

Yeah mate those were the ones that came with the system lol might see if I can pick up smaller ones in the hydro store today. And thank you for the tips on setting up the system def know they will be needed lol have been dreading setting it up as was reading through the instructions last night. Should be straight forward enough though. Also dude I’m picking up the nutes and coco today isn’t it canna coco a+b I’m grabbing? And thank you for the info on the ph up was trying to think what to use since I had a good organic ph down didn’t even think of silicon

Well mate a few hours later, lots of sweat and a little blood lol and I am finished, I think. System is set up in the growroom and the propagation light and humidifier set up in the 1m x 1m tent all ready for the babies. Got my seeds today mate went for Barney Farms pink Kush. I was going to put them in a glass of water tonight. From there mate I am lost lol

Below is what I would do if I was doing this alone mate.
I would have mixed 10 litres of coco with 10ml of ecothrive charge per litre of coco so that would be 100ml of charge. Then for planting I was thinking of either soaking the propagation rhizo bags in the ecothrive biosys solution or using plant magic root stim. Then put them in the propagation tent under the cfl prop light with humidity at 70%

But from start to finish here I’m not doing anything unless advised by yourself mate.

Back to looking prim and proper Junkie and mon the rhizo system and screw upgrade to the Groom looking tip top fella

Pardon me for saying though but your inlet is extremely close to your outlet, I fear even with the diffuser it may not be enough or do you have extra inlets below the canopy ??

Just a thought

Cannot wait for the run, Bulls will see you well fella

Good man. Use that method. Then they going in 1l pots yes?
Before seedlings get in make dure you moisture the coco with solution made of 24 hrs stayed tap water + 3 ml per L root stim. Water until you get slight runoff then place the seeds in the pots and cover with botles cut in half

Yeah mate into the 1L pots, and also got the 17L ones for final pot instead of the 30s Image. Seeds should hopefully be ready to plant on Sunday so will leave 10 litres of water out on Saturday morning to let it sit for 24hrs. What ph should I set it to mate for watering the root stim 5.8? With the bottles cut in half mate will I keep the humidifier in the propagation tent as well or just take it out and go with the bottles ? Image
