I'd like to grow slightly larger batches of phyto that you can in bottles, but I'm having limited success.
I've tried 5 gallon
plastic carboys, but I think the light blue color is affecting the light and slows the growth. I know there are clear glass carboys that the brewers use, but they are not cheap and they look like they'd be tough to clean anyway.
I've tried top lighting 5 gallon
buckets and I think the light penetration slows the growth there. They are definitely lagging way behind the one gallon batches in clear bottles.
Any ideas here? What are your thoughts on the large white water storage tanks...? Are they translucent enough to side light them?
