Gonna give this K.I.S.S method a whirl using Maxibloom and 4 different strains in Autopots...All freebies from the tude...
I was going to hang it up for the summer because of the extreme heat here in "Hells Garden" but got these led lights that put out less heat...
I cheated a little and put a 5000btu AC right across from the GR that an existing intake fan sucks nice cold air into the GR and added a thermal curtain to keep the cold air confined.
So far we had a 107* temps and with all the equipment running, at the hottest part of the day had temps around 78*. I'm sure I can shave a couple degrees off that when I run the lights at night...

As you know from a previous post my seedling were looking a little stunted after a week. This was my first time starting seeds in coco without germinating. I always started in a peat base soil where nutes were not needed for the first couple weeks then transplanted at the third set of leaves into their final container.
My problem with the seedling were they were lacking nutrients in the coco so, there getting a feed of 1/4 maxibloom, 1/4 tsp cal/mag, 1tsp vitamin b-1 and 2 tsp H20 to the gallon and are 10 days old now....
They perked right up and have shown significant growth in the last couple days. So I figure I'm about a week off for the seedling period...
When I get a third set of leaves will transplant to the Autopots with air domes and go for the full regime of nutrients.
I'm in the process of getting rid of the air stone(sucks)for the res and using a pond pump from my clone bucket with some made up pvc to get a waterfall effect...
Also made a frame to hold the two flowering lights more stable...
Light up a joint and enjoy the show for the next 90 days or so...
