Got 10 seeds from amserdamonline(sp), Early Misty, with 10 free winter mix seeds. Dropped 3 misty and 2 mix in water for 24 hours and planted. Only got 3 to germinate, but 1 had to go due to massive stretching issue. Man it was a crazy looking thin ass spaghetti noodle!
So I only have 2 to work with as my space is very limited. Never took measurements but ABOUT 2ft wideX2.5 ft deepX5 foot hi -1foot for big reflector. so only 4-4.5 ft hi.
Currently have 1 150watt CFL 6500K on the top, 1 42 watt CFL 6500k I think that gets moved around the pots, and 1 dual 2foot floro fixture with 1 6500k and 1 2700k, that stands up vertically. Haven't kept all on at all time, YET, it's a wate as the suplimental lights don't get to the plants much...too small still. But I hope the 232watts of light will produce for me. Of course switching to more 2700k spectrum when flower time comes.
This is an interior closet so not a lot of venting going on here(passive door in wall going to bathroom that is cold and drafty with outside air. ( old windows), but I have a fan in there and the temps stay between 68-84...mid 70's when the GF isn't around, whole other story there!
So I vegged these 2 for 2 weeks and was seeing a lot of tip browning and curling down. Went through some PH crash course and got test strips. Had to adjust the water I was using, BUT the runoff was OFF THE CHART acidic. That or the color of the runoff affected the test, but it is a chemical reaction I though...color shouldn't change that, anyway!
Got Foxfarm, Ocean forest yesterday 1/23, transplanted both and had 1 go well and the other go BAD, really really bad. I lost a lot of small roots through the repotting, and you can see the effects.
Appologies for not starting the journal sooner...I can't tell ya'll how much fun this is! I look forward to seeing my ladies (yeah, wishgull thinking on my part, lol) every day and see how much change took place when I was at work.
So I'll post a bunch of pic's here. Feel free to comment, criticize (constructive please, I don't want to be bashed) ask questions!
