Hi everybody! I'm back with a whole new show! lol
I want to say before we begin, I am now caring for two kids all by myself so I may not respond to every comment in this journal. I will do my best, but my time is limited. I will read them all and I genuinely appreciate any comment you may have (of the positive nature )
I currently have 9 babies. They are from various seeds I had been given or found in a bought bag.
They are all doing great! Two of them are about a week ahead of the rest, and one seems to be lagging behind a bit more than that but they are green and growing and they already smell amazing!!!
I will take pictures in a little bit and upload them tomorrow along with more specifics.
I am currently running 4 foot lights, 2 bulbs are in a t8 and 4 bulbs are in a t5. I am using 3 gal pots and fox farm ocean forest mixed half and half with a random bag that the hydro shop threw in cuz they robbed me on everything else (the salesmen are VERY untrustworthy!) I bought a sample feeding kit for beginners that came with a how-to-feeding chart. My second t5 will be here in a couple weeks, and I will hook up my other t8 as soon as I get the ventilation done. I plan to use them as supplemental lighting for the lower leaves.
I now own my home so I can make a rather permanent "area", I plan to run ducting under the house connected to floor vents on each side, this will be the intake and will have a damper in it to prevent backward flow.
I have already prepared the carbon filter, I'm waiting on the arrival of the in-line fan (that I had to order) before I start putting holes and vents everywhere.
There is a lot of work to do, but when I'm done the only one that will know it's there is me....and all of you!
Although I have just begun, this is already ten times the grow I had a few years back! I am UBER impressed! They are growing so fast and the nodes are close together. Tigger is happy!
