This grow will be similar in many respects to last years grow, except I will be growing regular strains, instead of autoflowering ones.
The strains are GHS femmed:
Great White Shark
They are colored seeds, so as not to get them confused I suppose. There are one of each.
This is an organic grow. The garden soil consists of:
Aged cow and horse manure
Sphagnum peat moss
And naturally composted organic materials (meaning dead roots and stems from vegies)
and local sandy soil. I have used this soil for a long time, and just add a bucket or two of new materials each spring.
The soil is like the consistancy of flour. It compacts, yet falls apart easily, and drains rapidly. I MAY add some pearlite.
I will be using the Fox Farm trio, which consists of Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, and Big Bud.
I am starting the seeds inside, so they won't go outdoors until Mother's Day, that is our supposed last day of frost danger.
The plants will be vegged under 12- 26w 6500K CFL's. That comes out to 1200w, 19,200L, and will use 312 watts of power to run.
Please don't laugh at my veg light set-up. It is what I finally ended up with, using what was available.
I will have to put up the pics a little later. Unfortunately, GC will not upload my attachments. I give up after a half an hour of trying.
