Summary –
Progress on my plants is looking really good. Back right plant gave me a bit of a scare due to a weak stalk problem, but now it looks like it’s pushed through any problems it might had.

Also in this video I go over topping my front left plant, what I do to clean out my hydro system and how often to do it, and finally how I set up my scrog and whether it’s required or not.

If you have any questions or comments about my hydro weed grow, make sure you post them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Happy growing!

    wow, very nice, briefly considered this but wifi serial adapters so cheap I think much easier to wifi it to a PC as opposed to touchscreen…but the touch screen is way cool for stand alone

    Sir, i'm curious about your pH monitoring…. How long pH sensor can handle continous monitoring before it can't meauring your pH accurately? I need to know about pH sensor endurance. Thank you :)

    No nutrient control? Slack man, very slack. All you need is a peristaltic pump and some idea how to work Arduino! I'm very jealous, you may have inspired me to teach myself how to do this stuff. Wicked to know this was possible years ago….what can be done towards 2016?!

    Would a tkinter application be better for the display on a raspberry pi? Tkinter on the raspberry pi is much faster! Tkinter being an python module for TCL…

    I need something like this for my bioreactor to monitor it while I'm away, data log, and send me a warning if there is a problem.

    this is great, one piece I am looking for. My mother is a turtle breeder and I like to setup a system to control what they need. Air, temp and other things. Will be a big project for me and I dont know if I will be able todo it myself. As I am no programmer. Well I try :)

    hello just got a touch screen 3.2 " with 74HC573D WBYJB02 microcontroller but I can not make it work because I do not have an exact diagram Connection Could someone provide me with a digram of how to connect?

    dear Sir
    please share your LIBRARY of ARDUINO to make this LCD works, and if was possibel, share examples codes too
    regards

    Thanks for posting your project. Did you design it? If you want to add CO2 enrichment to go along with your fan control find a CO2 sensor with analog 0-10v or 0-4v output (I've got them avail) -you can find brand new Telaire & sensair sensors for 50-100 on FeeBay.
    Searching for the project right now. Thanks again!
    PS- If you want my CO2 control code, send message. DX

    What's Ajright here,

    I'm new to this and a lot to learn. My grow box is only 3ft tall not a lot of room. I bought Distilled Water do I have to adjust the Ph or is it good to go?

    Couple things… First of all, you talk like the handicapped son from Breaking Bad. No, that's not a compliment. Secondly, you're trying to start a hydro scrog with plants from seed that aren't even mature. It's best to use clones from a mature plant, your seedlings look like shit for hydro. I get faster growth rates than this from soil. Are you using CFL to flower also? That screen you made looks like shit, are you mildly retarded or just super high? This is exactly what's wrong with cannabis growing advice on the internet, people who don't know what the fuck they are doing giving others advice.

    Love your vids. Bout to start in a week or two. I'm following your lead so if I mess up its on THC Digest. Lol naw just kidding. But I am growing just like yours. Try anyway. Hey wat do you use to keep the smell down?

    I'm interested in seeing how you lift up the lid & take the reservoir from under it. Seems like a tedious process for one person especially if the plants are under a Sprog.  So it def be nice to see how you do it, just to get an idea.

    +THC Digest Can you please please make a video showing how you Change Your Solution/Nutrients & clean your reservoir. I'm interested on how you approach it with the Bubbleponic. Also do you change your PH in the reservoir? Million Thanks!

    ps that one picture was very helpful! would love a video

    No, I've gotten lots of positive feedback about the current way I've done it. My previous videos will always be available to you as well.

    Yeah they can die if the water's never changed although I've never experienced that. The main reason they'd die though is probably because the water would become a toxic environment for them.
