Secret Grow Room 1st grow journal
Posted 24 January 2012 - 08:50 AM
I am in my thirty's , married , have a young kid , and a homeowner. I am also a legal OMMP patient. I am tired of paying for Marijuana that may or may not be quality medicine , plus I hate dealing with the black market. I also am VERY low key with my usage due to my kid , neighbors , family , and friends. Since there is still somewhat of a stigma around marijuana , if I was going to grow it I had to make it so other people could NOT smell or see my growing Marijuana plants. So I decided to make a secret grow room http://forum.grassci...ml#post13568727
My Room is shaped like an L and the top part of the L is the veg room. The veg room itself is 4.5 x 6.5 , The flower room is the lower part of the L and measures 5.5 x 7. I am going to use a Coco based soil-less grow mix called Tupur. I currently am vegging a few clones out under a 4 bulb 4 foot T5. I am currently running Pineapple express, White widow , Green Crack , and a mystery strain known as V. My flower room has a 8 inch air cooled hood with a 1000w hortilux bulb and 1000w hydrofarm HPS ballast. I am also using a home made carbon filter with a 6 inch Hydrofarm inline blower fan. My Fan sucks through my Filter , then pushes clean air over my light and out into my vented attic. My fresh air intake is passive , and is also filtered. My room is nearly air tight , I sealed every nook and cranny with expanding foam and used some very nice rubber sealing around my door. I am also running Panda plastic from floor to ceiling.
My friend has used tons of different nutes and has settled on General Hydroponics Flora lines. I am using a new system they have called "Dual Flora" also , since I am in a coco mix , I will supplement with Botanicare Cal-Mag also. I use purified filtered water. I also have been setting my PH at 5.8 going in at least.
I am here to learn , please feel free to give me advise. This is my first grow , so I have a lot to learn. I will have pics to come , probably tomorrow. Check out my post on the Secret grow room if your curious. here is the link again (same as above)http://forum.grassci...ml#post13568727

Subbed. I love that secret grow room. I showed that to my girl last night as what I want to do at our new house and she loves it. It's a big improvement than taking up the master bedroom walk in closet.
Thanks!!! its roughly 1/4th of my garage , but unless you remember how it was before , you would never have a clue it was there.
As soon as I drop my daughter off at school , I will come home and start the Pics and upload a few.

and here is a little LST I am testing with a stretched clone I got a hold of.
So do they look healthy , neglected ? Anyone think my light is to close?

Bottom pic is a few misc clones from friends. Oh and I also got a seed from some killer Afgan , I was told it was fertilized by a Skunk #1 hermi. It just sprouted and is looking great.
PS. More Subs will make me update more

Thanks , I can't wait to see some results I am going to be super careful now , and I got a new nice fan.
Sorry to hear about the pm and the bugs man. That sucks. Bug prevention is the key. I mix mosquito dunks into my soil now to ensure no fungus gnats, that's the only bug problem I've had so far. Neem oil works good when in veg and maybe short into flowering. I, personally, don't spray a flowering plant but some people will a couple weeks into flowering. Keep on going man. Once you start flowering, you will start seeing the rewards.
Does anyone know the flower time of Pineapple express? I get mixed results everywhere I look. And do I start the flower time from when she shows sex? or when I flip to 12/12?
