As a first start, I decided to buy four clones of "The Purps" variety from a dispensary in the Bay Area (CA). If this first grow does well, I will probably go for an eight-plant grow next time (and will take new clones from The Purps). Recall that I am growing for my own medicinal purposes only, I never have and never will sell, and do not need the huge yields that some seek.
I converted an unused pool house shed next to my house. I am lucky in that it is plumbed and has a concrete floor with drain. I rigged a 600W fixture and using a fan sucking air through the light fixture and a Phat charcoal filter. I use small reciprocating fan for air circulation. In this area and climate this time of year allows me to use a very small dairy heater to keep the space 70-80 during the day and 55-60 at night. I water and feed using a 2 gal. spray tank and am following the FoxFarm schedule and product.
Here are some pictures of when I first set the clones. I will post twice more to bring you up to speed on how the plants can be currently viewed. Then, I will try to post pics once a week until after harvest.
Also recall that this is my first they so, while I appreciate all constructive comments, donít mistake me for an expert that SHOULD do better. In other words, be kind.
