I'm Sal posted a topic in Grow Journals IndoorNeed to get my new "veg" tent occupied for my follow-on grow. My new revised "veg" tent runs a fresh active 4" intake from one of the two same fans which provides my "flowering" tent with both its fresh active intakes. Also the new "veg" tent extracts directly into my main "flowering" tent using the same carbon filter. There is not a smell of anything in the air from any of my tents. Everything (temps, RH, airflow and entire environment) is working perfectly with nice negative pressure in both my main "flowering" tent and also my new "veg" tent. I have gone through my seed inventory and I have decided on growing the following with very carefully planned training: ***2 x GHSC Kalashnikova (grown recently (produced nearly 3oz/plant & I want to "play" around with it more to get it full potential such as topping, LST'ing, super-crop and maybe SCROG) - **** FAILED TO GERMINATE SO REPLACED WITH 2 x GHSC WHITE WIDOW x CHEESE SEEDS (TEST SEEDS) WHICH TOOK JUST 2 DAYS TO GERMINATE. 3 x Seedsman Jack Herer FAST (these are a brand new Seedsmans strain crossed with a FAST version and should be nice) 1 Advanced Female Seeds Blue-Berry Twist (I want to taste this one and because it is a single freebie seed I may as well throw it in the mix) - FAILED TO GERMINATE PROPERLY AND WAS A MUTANT JUST NEED ALL SEEDS TO SPROUT SO THIS LIST ABOVE MIGHT BE REVISED DEPENDING ON GERMINATION RATE!!! The above plants will be vegged for around 4 weeks, in my new "veg" tent and will be the next batch to go in my "flowering" tent and will be vegged and trained for a futher 2 weeks or so until my current grow is finished. This is what is currently growing in my "flowering" tent and they will be chopped in approx 4/5 weeks time. The plan is to get the new seeds soaked in water for approx 6 to 12hrs to soften the shells tomorrow, then they will go straight into tiny pots with their already chosen medium. The medium will be the same as I my current grow, Clover Multi Purpose Compost with approx 33% added Perlite. This Clover brand is not so well known and is fairly limited availability unless you want to pay very expensive delivery charges. Luckily I have a garden centre very close with a very good for the price, the soil is not too hot at all and an excellent fine dark texture without any lumps, chippings and any other rubbish. The added bonus is also that it comes in 60ltr bags Final pot sizes will be 11ltrs therefore their route to this will be re-potting from tiny 1/2ltr pots, then 3.5ltrs and finally their ending 11ltr pot. I am an LED grower as you know with a fair few different brands of LED units to chose from but 1 x ViparSpectra 450w & 1 x Go-Grow V1 (formerly Virgin Borneo) Pro is currently being used in my "flowering" tent therefore since I have another ViparSpectra 450w, this will be used in the new "veg" room. This is a very good LED unit for the price and I have used these particular LED units in all my recent grows so far. As for flowering, this will be the same as my current grow and the grow previous to that, they will be flowered with 1 x ViparSpectra 450w & 1 x Go-Grow V1 (formerly Virgin Borneo) Pro which draws approx 375 REAL LED watts from the wall. My main "flowering" tent is the new 1.2m x 1.2m x 2.0m BudBox XL Series with the white interior and I find them spot on. Very good quality regarding all components and fixtures with no light leaks at all, very solid chunky 25mm metal frame including metal corners and also very good zips. It is the best tent I have ever used and the price from a certain site is much cheaper, by a long way (if based in the UK), from one particular supplier. Anyway, that is the plan and the ball will start rolling tomorrow so hopefully within a few days I will have 5 tiny new plants to show you all if germination is successful. Also, sorry to say but this will be my last documented grow dairy on any dedicated growing social website for several reasons, mainly security issues as I like to spend as little time with my plants as possible. It is time consuming taking & transferring pictures and also writing a detailed narrative about everything carried out and the traffic on this site makes it pointless as replies are rare and it is like speaking to an empty arena. Sorry but these are the facts and I refuse to risk my security and waste time any longer. I grow for my own supply and my current set-up enables 4 grows per year to be easily and totally self sufficient all year round without growing during the coldest months (November to February) when I will not grow at all. I will keep you all updated and thanks for taking your time to read my posts.
Undutched posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHi guys here are some pics on my new grow I grow GHS genetics only this time and since they have provided me with some great stuff to work with I'll be revieuwing my grow on this website. I've grown short plants till now due to the space I was growing in currently test running a new grow space; stairs- closet grow, ventilated with pc fans; 12 cm exhaust and 2x 6 cm air intakes the 2 x6 cm can be switched seperately and the big one is set to operate in 3 electrical settings / voltage adjustments and by doing so making the fan run harder or slower. And there is a nice feature to the one I´ve build (if I say so myself) It has 2 non electrical settings that can be set by opening up or covering parts on the ventilationduct itself. Here some startup pics in advanced. I'll be revieuwing the Afgooey only growing 1 with powder feeding and with with Canna to have those compared. I grow using a Led and CFL combination. Besides growing Afgooey(present from GHS) I grow; Pure Kush, Great White Shark, Arjans Strawberry haze, Super Silver Haze (present from GHS) and Lady Burn 1974. Hope you guys will enjoy my grow and we make it to the finish!!! I'll add some germination pics and some pics from my growroom to be!. Showing my Pure Kush Mother to be! And the 4 sprouts that after following the germination proces on this website (>24hrs in a glas off water) than (>24hrs between cotton pads both situations in the dark) Once in the dirt they srouted within 24 hours and I'm counting on 100 % sprouting due to the dirt within the other small containers that has started to lift in the right place!!!
