  7. Update:I'm waiting my first pwr bill to see which way i'm gonna take the grw..right now this is perfect indr grw weather..its pretty cold and i never used to feel it because the leds warmed my studio nicely and i wasn't paying for power..now i'm paying pwr to heat the place with electric heat..i have no clue what it could be even with 30% senior discount..i'm thinkin if i'm payin to heat the place i might as well use my leds to heat the place rather than the mothership thru wall heater/ac..cvr it with quilt cvr to reduce draft thru it use small space heater instead..take me a day or two to set up ugly cab again..just usin it for storage ATM..Sit brought up the point that most towns are banning cultivation outdrs but indrs is still compliant with 6 plnt limit..i can wrk with that ..new boss same BS but easier in the boonies to stay on the dwn lo..definitely gets too hot in summer for indrs thats when i switch to my ddeck and utility rm storage for now 001.JPG

  9. Update: My sprouts are lookin gd ..gonna wash my smarties and wally bgs at the laundrmat tomorrow..stop by HD and p/u startr soil..i'm figuring out my sun exposure..sun rises on east side of deck giving the deck southern expsure all day..figure i'll put them outdrs around 7:30 am bring them in around 4 pm and put them under the led till i go to bed..use the sun to veg with and extend the hrs using the led as little as possible..at the strt it'll be easy carryin them in and out..later they'll go on carts buts that a gd while to that point..i unpk'd all my amendments and i'll be doing inventory nxt wk..i nd to get decent base soil and i'm gonna have to go to hydro store about 40 mi is closest..i can get soil for patio plnts at HD but the soil i build for pot nds to be gd blend to start with so it can ''appreciate'' like a fine aging wine..i have time so i want use manure in the mix..out of nine sprouts i nd at least 4 fems so i can make clones..its a looong road to victory sprouts on third day 002.JPG booonie sunrise 001.JPG

  10. You have a smartphone? There is an app for that. It works great. If you get the paid verison, you track multiple dates. The free one works for just one time and date, the present. I was amazed.

  13. Would be nice if you could collect sunshine the same way.
     
  14. Update; set the space up this morn..it was just puttin in 4 hooks and hangin the lite with pwr board..this little space is gonna be sweeter than i thought..it'll accept all my led sizes when the time comes..theres a small window in the corner for ventilation..the bth rm is easily the coldest rm in the apt any time of day and thats with the window closed..i still got to put up a usb fan and a therometer when i srt unpackin gear and find them..still no pwr bill so i'm wrkin on guesstimate..figure i nd 16 hrs for veg. minimum.if i put them outside around 7am and bring them in around 4pm tha grw set up 001.JPG ts 9 hrs..nd another 6-7 hrs..the tricky part is when to get those hrs in..they have different tiers of pwr figured on a baseline..go over your baseline and you are screwed..they'll put you in a higher KWH rate so its a very , very delicate dance..i'm chking into when the rates are cheapest..might be in the very early am which would be great cause i get up early,,i washed 10 smarties and wally bgs ystrday at the llaundromat..p/u strtr soil at HD..this morn i gotta get busy doing tp's

  19. Update: Tlk'd to grw ptnr to see how the clones are doing..she says they are doing unexpectedly well..they are bushy and flwrng..smelley n sticky..they went outdrs mid nov and strt'd flwrng right away so they could be ready latter prt of feb..she says with the rains she hasn't had to wtr in 3 wks..i did a lot of prep wrk on the soil they're in so its wrkin out as planned..i get 4-5 oz as my cut i'm happy..haven't figured out logistics for harvest yet..ideally i'd like her to do the chop..hang them to dry..then i'd drive dwn do the final trim and weigh out...or have her do it all drive up with my cut and i give her plnts to take bk and strt another round for comin summer season..i really don't want to drive plnts around in my car..too visible..she has a van so safer..

  20. Update: The sprouts are being propped up with sticks n pins..grwth is a little slow because its cold but they are a hrdy strain..if its sunny i put them out if not they stay under the led..i'm not feelin it frm this strtr mix..just too loose..think i'm going to tp them into soil i brought with me..i was going to use it for the nxt tp but i think i'll give it to them now..wrk on it today during the games..today is my B-day and i'm happy to be here relatively healthy and in decent shape..i have high hopes for the future..i let the eagle fly just a little bit and bought a refurbished receiver so i can hook my spkrs up..i been playin my rig thru the tv spkrs and its not loud enough even using a pwrd sub woofer..life time sittin nxt to bass bins takes the high end off your hearing..now that its dead silent here in the desert i'm noticing it..oh well dick still gets hrd, brain is still sharp and i'm not shitting myself..i'll gratefully take it progress 001.JPG
