Wow, it's been a while. I didn't mean to abdandon my grow journal but my life has been so hectic it's been hard to take pictures, etc.
The plant has grown A LOT since these pictures and I have been experimenting quite a bit with LST recently. We are at day 56 and I just started 12/12 yesterday. I basically gave it two months of veg and started flowering yesterday.
This past Friday I built a home made carbon filter (I'll try to get some pictures soon) using this great writeup:http://www.gardenscu...bon-filter.html
It turned out great! To make everything fit properly the filter itself ended up being larger then I wanted it to be but it will definitely do the job. LST is helping me keep the plant short enough to fit the box. The plant itself has been sort of naturally "squat" and makes me wonder if it is more of an Indica blend then Sativa. It was bagseed since this is my first grow and I'm learning.
The fans in my pull-through exhaust are having a harder time keeping up with the restriction that the carbon filter imposes but temperatures haven't gone over 85 degrees. I did some research and everyone I came across said the plant will continue to grow at this temperature. With the lights being 12/12 now instead of 24/0 the temperatures should decrease some.
I used weather stripping to light-seal the door and I caulked every crevice. Should be nice and sealed from light.
Its still a stealth grow, which has been a fun challenge. I had a friend over the other day and we stood and chatted within reaching distance of my grow box and he never noticed, suspect, heard, or smelled a thing. It was awesome
I just hope that carbon filter does the job as I enter flowering. I should known within a week the sex of the plant. I am nervous because I only have one plant (due to size contrictions and the fact that this is my first grow). Hopefully these past two months of nuturing will pay off.
Anyway, I will try and snap some pictures off when I am next able to spend some quality time with the plant. Hopefully on Friday!
Lets hope for a nice, healthy little girl!
