First DWC grow vs 2 potted plants.

–°hanged Feb 26, 2017
First time grower. Having a lot of fun and trying my best to do this right on my first shot. So lots of reading and YouTube vids. lol. I'm starting one plant in DWC hydroponic and two others in soil.. Currently loving DWC!! This is all under a Viparspectra 300w led 135w actual draw. So far no complaints. :) As for soil I did have a few issues, biggest issue was waiting to long to transplant into bigger pot. (Stunted growth) The DWC plant has grown amazing the whole time and have not had any serious issues other than keeping the water temperature cool. They are now averaging 70-76. Always putting ice packs to cool it down. The plants growth has been unlike anything I've ever seen! I do use general hydroponic nutes with cal mag and botanical microbes. I just topped the DWC plant and I am using some LST training to start directing it where I need it to go. Almost 3 weeks into veg. I will keep updating with pics. Thanks for watching.
