Tervehdys, kaksi samaan aikaan sattunutta teknistä muutosta / ongelmaa summa aiheutti vajaan viikon katkon foorumille. Nyt palvelinohjelmisto on jouduttu päivittämään uuteen ja sekä ulkoasu että toiminnallisuus on muuttunut. Toivotttavasti ei ainakaan kovin paljoa huonompaan suuntaan. Odottamattomia ongelmiakin saattaa ilmaantua.

Hello!
First post on the forum and hopefully there will be lots more.

I am planning on building an Ebb & Flood growroom using only artificiall light, and could realy use some expertice.

What kind of lamps do I need for this?


Would also like to know what kind of varietys that would thrive in those conditions.
I want alot of pods that are tasty and beautifull =)

Any advice would be greatly apreciated!

 Whatever you do, don´t do it like I did;





Do not put too many plants in hydro, at least 1,5m space should be left for each plant, especially chinenses which tend to grow both height and width.  NFT is a very effective hydro system as well as others; ebb/flood and bubblers. NFT has shown me how it is possible to grow a chili from germination to pods and plant 1,50m tall in 25 days. The pics above are taken 9.3.13 and the green mass is at least double at the moment. Just waiting for a bit of warm breeze from the south to put the GH working.

The lamps I use are 4 x 400W HPS and one 600W HPS. One CFL 250W and two 90W LEDs. Depends on your needs and space to light and of course your budget what to use as light source.
To produce something I would choose NFT and a couple of HPS lamps + 120W LED combination.
The varieties are up to your own taste but Naga morich must be included.

Wow those pics are crazy   :D


I am thinking of building a couple of theese: http://fatalii.net/growing/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=118&Itemid=69

how would that differ from an NFT system?

Thanks for the reply!

 Check the IKEA Trofast box set and Jewe´s diary http://chilifoorumi.fi/index.php?topic=12586.180 how to make an IKEA NFT.
Better and easier than ebb.

It might be or not.

The difference is that, the NFT is continually feeding the plants by pumping nutrient solution through the upper box. In the Ebb, you pump the nutrient solution to the upper box with timed schedule, like 4 times a day and 15min per one time.

So in NFT, the roots are constantly wet and ebb they may dry when there is lots of tempreture, but not so bad that plant would suffer for it.

OT: Sorry bad Engrish

Thank you!

I am leaning towards an ebb system becuse it looks so easy to maintain and move the plants if i need to.

with an ebb you will be stuck with a heap of sucky hydro-pebbles to clean every now and then ;) 
-Last autumn really got me thinking of a "nutrients only" system. Limitations in space and money forces me to pipe-hydros this year...

I will also be limited by space so any tips on that would be great aswell

Another thing Im thinking aobut is if I need to move the plants when they get bigger, is it different depending on ebb or nft?
And what to do then they reach the ceiling?
