So about 6 months back I stumbled onto the wonderful world of growing/horticulture what ever you want to call it. I set up a small stealth grow in a rubbermaid container and went to town. Well for multiple reasons, time being the big one, the plants ended up getting basically dried while still in the ground. I was a bit sad but sort of knew it was coming (they had an iron def as well). Either way I decided if I was going to do this I would go about it the correct way. I went out stupidly and bought a 400 watt HPS light and some dry ducting thinking I would convert a smallish dresser and that would be stealth grow. Oops didn't even consider the fact it might be a bit hot. That was nearly 2 months ago and about 20 ideas ago. And have since gotten my temperatures down to the 78-86 range.
The Loot Summary-
After spending the $500 dollar limit I first put myself I am decently happy with my current set up.
I have a 25X36X60 space set up with Panda film,
My little 400 watt ballast and reflector with glass enclosure,
A 165 CFM 4" Inline Fan,
Two 80 cfm pc fans for intake and two for exhaust,
And a few home made DIY scrubbers.
When you add up everything it doesn't seem like I really purchased much but the work involved is where the real investment began.
I ended up learning so much from GC and a VERY helpful guy that works at my local hydroponics store. He even offered that I could bring in plants or pictures if I ever needed his help with anything. Haha.
Anyways on to the journal after all that fun setup!
I went with 3 different strains as I want to just see which ones I like. I also knew I would get a few free seeds with the purchase and one of them interested me.
5 days old in the attached pictures.
Advanced Seeds - Black Diesel
Barney's Farm - L.S.D.
CH9 - Jack 33
Lowryder or Joint Doc - Sour Diesel
I can not say how frequent I will update with pictures, but I will try to update text wise any time anyone has questions, comments, or concerns.
