Right now the strains I am working with are White Rhino and Master Kush. Along the way I'll throw in a different strain every once in a while, if that strain proves to be better than one of my other plants final product, then I'll replace what I consider the lesser of the two. I am starting from seed so to save time I will be flowering the original plant, but while it is still in veg I will take a few cuttings and eventually make one a mother plant and the other one will be ready to go into flower. Once I have an established mother I plan on having a harvest about every two months. Sounds great!
Here's some stats as of now
Tent: 2x3x5' DxWxH metal framed tent with Panda Film for my sides.
Cab: 2x2x4' DxWxH made with wood sides painted bright white on the whole inside. This will be the Mother/clone box.
Light: 150w HPS All-In-One SunSystem(I may throw some extra CFL's in there if I feel I'm not getting enough lower light) After my first harvest I am going to save some money so I can bump up to 250 watts with a cool tube system
Soil: My own creation of sifted fruit/eggshell/ash compost Along with some new and recycled Fox Farms Ocean Forrest. All in all A 1/2 and 1/2 soil-compost mix then a 1/2 and 1/2 soil-perlite mix. I plan on brewing up some AACT here in a bit, would like some advice on some tea starter packs
Nutes: I will be using CNS17 veg nutes, I would use fox farm's Grow Big but I like that the CNS has a good dose of cal/mg, for flowering I will be using Fox Farm's Big Bloom and Tiger Bloom. Along with these I will also use Aloe Vera juice, maybe some org. Blackstrap Mollasses and every now and then some superthrive. Also for some defficiency fixes I got CalMg and some epsom salt wich I dont even think I'll use.
Fan: Dayton Blower Squirel Cage Fan Pushing a good 131 CFM, I know it's not the best fan but I can't really shell out a hundred bucks for a fan at this time. I cleaned and disinfected the whole tent and then did a test run for a day to see how the temps were in the summer. She did great, never saw it go over 80 deg.
I'll update about once a week unless some special new development arises. Every update will undoubtedly come with pics so stay tuned!
Well the Master Kush has sprouted yesterday, and thinking that it didnt look too photo worthy, with the seed shell still attached I waited untill today to take a pic of her. Looks healthy to me.
The White Rhino has just popped it's tail so she'll be goin into some soil here today.
