Minty's Grow Tents (600w MH/HPS, Soil, Scrog)
Posted 12 April 2012 - 06:00 PM
I am an old user who is reuniting with the GC community and thought I would post a journal to document my newest adventure.
I will be using a two tent system with one being set up as a veg room and one being used for flowering. All ventilation is 4" ductwork with an active exhaust being vented directly outside. I am also using a 4" carbon filter that should hopefully eliminate all unwanted odors before being exhausted. I have yet to decide on the number of plants I want to use and what type of rotation I want to be on....perpetual harvest?
The veg tent is a Secret Jardin DS60 (24x24x56") with a 125w CFL under a basic reflector. This room will be used for for my mothers/seedlings/clones/vegging plants just depending on what direction I decide to take this grow. I have the ventilation for this tent connected to the ventilation for the flowering tent which allows me to use my carbon filter for both room while still air cooling the 600w hood in the flowering tent. Its a neat little setup that I came up with but Im just hoping it works as well as it seems to be so far....I'll post pictures and explain more later
The flower room is a Secret Jardin DR120 (48x48x80") with a 600w MH/HPS that is housed in an air-cooled reflector and powered by a Lumatek dual ballast. The flower tent also holds the 4" ProFilter Pro carbon filter that is routed so that it ventilates both grow tents and scrubs all air before it is exhausted directly outside. The hood is held up by two light ratchets which makes lowering and raising the reflector extremely easy. I have also built a fancy DIY 4x4 scrog out of 3/4" PVC pipe and nylon string.

The 5 small seedlings consist of 3 GH Exodus Cheese, 1 GH Great White Shark and 1 Dinafem Blue Hash.
I also put in another seed order and have Dinafem Powerkush, Critical +, and ?Diesel all coming plus a bunch of freebies.

I will probably transplant the bigger ones into the 3 gal pots this weekend and put them under the 600w MH for roughly 7-10 days before I flip them to 12/12.
I got anyone following this?

How the babys doing?
The girls are doing pretty well but two of the small seedlings have some slight burning which appears to be from the light so I'll keep on eye on the situation.
