Hey y'all,
some cracking ganja setups on 'topia, been lurking here for a while so its about time I shared mine too.
These days I grow using the screen of green TEK, in modular fashion in elevated grow tents. Carbon filtering is a must. As you can see, I use DWC bubblers only.



I run 4 of these "modules", all identical, and a single bubbler cubby grow. A nice compliment to this sort of bubbler grow is to elevate the grow tent on a sturdy platform, it requires a bit of construction, but well worth the effort. This makes transferring solution very easy and trouble free. This platform is exactly 12" high. The solution is filled via the header tank (outside the tent, on the left) and is drained by putting a bucket on the floor adjacent to the vertical tube (between the two bubblers), and rotating the tube 90 deg so that it drains into the bucket. No siphoning or nutrient pump required. This is all made from components found at any good hardware retail outlet, and FWIW I've never had a leak.

The scrog screen is suspended by white twine and the scrog screen area is exactly 10 square feet. The air-cooled hps lamp is a 600 watter.

Since these pictures where taken, an extra 400 watter has been added to give each tent 1000 watts.
Yield is usually around 2.5 oz per square foot, or thereabouts.

Cheers for the comments peeps :bow:
Weeeeeee, the strain is a cutting only strain available in south central Scotland, its a cross of some rather odd grower-circle unheard of strains..
Cheese - superskunk phenome.

Newyork city diesel
Mad Sativa
Arctic Sun

The yield from each tent was circa 15 oz with the 600 watters, but since increasing the wattage its now circa 25-30 oz. The problem with the single 600 watter was light distribution, the peripherals weren't getting the light so adversely affected yields.

The wooden frame 850 watt grow yielded 42 oz (1.321 gram/watt !), but it was so much work to maintain that I dismantled it last week and replaced it with another grow tent "module". I'm not too bothered about g/w ratios, just rather make the best use of available space.

Here's a few pics of the tent which has replaced the wooden frame 850 watter. This one is an 800 watter.

This tent has two 400 watters rather than the 600/400 W combo all the other tents are fitted with.

Just to summarise, I should mention that this growing technique has served me well.
I used to grow in soil, then NFT, then moved on to drip bubblers but I've found that this method has proved itself to be a rather low maintenance alternative that I can't fault. Its evolved over a decade to what it is now, without going too overboard (converting rooms, etc). I've chosen this method over sea of green for strictly legal reasons - I only have 9 plants, but they yield in excess of 12 oz each. 9 plants doesn't sound as bad as 50.
But for goodness sake, don't do what I did a couple weeks back and overdo it with the mushies and hallucinate a bunch of cops kicking in your door, it really isn't good for the 'ole ticker :lol: :lol:

Very good job buddy.

You got cheese eh?
I love me some cheese.
I wish some day the UK Cheese clone arrives here in Canada.
Until then we are stuck with Big Buddah Cheese.
Still cheesy, but not true Cheese.

Whew all this cheese talk is making me salivate.

very very pro scrog setup.
Lovin the cooltubes.

Thanks for the comments and rep peeps, much appreciated ! And Frequency, thanks for the POTM nomination !! I think thats prolly the first time anything of mine's been nominated for..well..anything...lol
SG I don't have the pure cheese strain, but I was given this strain as a cutting. I wouldn't mind the pure cheese though, you've reminded me about this so I'm gonna make some enquiries and see if I can score a cheese cutting.


A few weeks back I harvested the single plant 400 W cubby grow. Been curing for 3 weeks so far.

14.07 oz of pure dankness

Its already beginning to smell like candy, so should be finished in another couple weeks or so.

That is fantastic! Scrog is my favorite technique going now.
I don't grow, but if I did, it would be scrog. Legally you're way
better off, and look at that easy setup!

If you build another one of these tents, you should map it all out for the rest
of us.

Excellent job man!

Great Idea.
I am 100% sure that you can find the original Cheese
in Scotland, (knowing the right people helps too)
Cheese is all over Europe, spreading as far as Bulgaria.
Being so close to the UK, you are destined to run into it.

If I ever move across the pond to Europe,
I will make it my goal to find those genes.

Would you mind giving us the timeline of a typical grow from clone to harvest?
And any particular tekniques for topping and branching?

The new closet that is in construction is more your style so I'm keen to duplicate your success.
