Zombie Tubs with perlite

Recommended Posts

Mr.Mush

So I ordered perlite instead of verm and used it in the bottom of a zombie tub. Should be ok right?

 

Thanks

Get yourself some verm. You should be able to find it locally pretty darn cheap. The tek says:

If this tek is not followed exactly as it is written it may not work very well. The design, and environmental for this type of tub are VERY specific for it to work as seen in my pictorial. If you want to have as great of success as I do, please follow the tek in its entirety.

Perlite is not the same as verm. It doesn't absorb water in the same way. It simply holds it because of the surface area. If it were me, I wouldn't chance messing my whole grow up when that close to the end..

Well Damn, I ordered it by mistake and didn't notice until I was putting it all together. At least its only one tub. I have two mist and fan tubs going and two bags, so at this point it is what it is and I'll see what happens. I will order the correct stuff soon. Coarse grade right?

Thanks for the reply

I have 5 z-tubs going. And I forgot to put verm in at all!!!!!!

However, they are doing GREAT. (Pics will be forthcoming, just hard to get a decent shot while enclosed be in tubs).

Only sharing this news cuz I believe if you build it, they will come!!!

      Pretty crappy quality pic, but, everything was white.  Started GT spores on agar here 6 days ago.  Took pic in still air box, may be contaminated now but who knows, I'll find out soon enough.   Cut into 6 pieces.  1 went into a jar of LC, 5 went into WBS jars. Going to be doing another round of WBS and 1 LC in the next week or two, whenever my PES hawaiin spores get here from different vendor.

      I'm back. Nd yeah absent thoughts i got a super nice pinset going now no casing layer! on 3rd flush, also made a super clean LC. Strain is PF CLASSIC. I did make a print from the GT i doubt the sterility of it though so im not wasting any time with that yet.. Things are moving along

      Parts per million and electrical current of the water.  Measured before you feed and after(after is measured through runoff).  You can buy a meter to test water with nutrient solution.  Although there is a K.I.S.S. method that wirks fine amd you dont need meters and a lot of water testing.  Just get Maxibloom and weigh out 7 grams per gallon of water, or use flora Nova bloom as directed.  With a ppm/EC meter you can fine tune exactly how much nutes your plants are getting for perfect dosage of the nutrients if you will.
