    Welcome to my first ever grow
    I originally wanted to start my grow in a cab I built until i realised how limited I was going to be on space. Especially with the 200w dual spectrum omega cfl, that had to be replaced after the original got broken in post :D DSC_0049.JPG I was originally going to run 12v computer fans for intake and exhaust but very quickly realised i needed more space, shame really as I was really pleased with the quality of my build she was totally sealed and light proof apart from the intake and exhaust that i was gong to block off with light traps so i upgraded her.
    Next she went into a chest of drawers DSC_0080.JPG which was a bit bigger and allowed me some more room, I had to mount the fan and filter on the outside, this meant i had to push the air through my cf scrubber rather than pulling through it. At least I had somewhere with a bit of room to grow in. DSC_0079.JPG
    Once my chest of drawers was fully built I decided to germinate a honeysuckle seed from advanced female seeds DSC_0085.JPG

    But as you can see I've got a major light leak problem, DSC_0083.JPG which isn't a problem right now as I'm running the lights 24hr but obviously I'd need to sort it out asap, I did have plans to sort it but then I've decided on her final home.
    I've ordered a 0.8mx0.8mx1.6m tent along with a mars hydro 300w led @smokesara they should be here today or tomorrow.
    She popped 22.07.2017
    Planted in soil same day after germinating for about 4 hours (much quicker than i expected)
    I've just planted 2 regular seeds from KC Brains california special last night aswell because I knew i would have room in the tent so thought I'd see how they go, fully prepared to remove males (hoping I don't get any)
    So final setup will be;
    • 4" Systemair RVK Extraction Fan
    • 4" Rhino pro carbon filter
    • 200w dual spectrum omega cfl
    • 125w 6400K Veg cfl
    • 125w 2700K Flower cfl
    • Mars Hydro 300 led
    • 0.8mx0.8mx1.6m grow tent
    • Plagron Batmix soil with added extra perlite
    Temperatures in grow box are slightly high but she will be moved into the tent soon so that should bring the temps down. PH is slightly too high but I haven't been able to get down to the hydro shop yet stupidly i prepared everything else but totally forgot to get any ph up and down.
    Unsure on what nutes I want to use I've been looking at the biobizz range, anyone with any experience of these, your views would be welcomed.

    So anyway here's a picture of her this morning. DSC_0099.JPG

  6. Nice, when you received the light check whether it is packaged well and the light is OK, for during the transit some products will damaged, if any problems feel free to contact me:)

  14. Quick update the girls seem to be on a go slow
    I've now got advanced female seeds honeysuckle and blueberry twist growing, well the blueberry twist hasn't broken soil yet.
    The honey suckle seems to be on a go slow, I'm seeing everyone else's grow and theirs is leaps and bounds ahead of mine. DSC_0139.JPG
    Worried about the one California special seedling, honestly don't think its going to make it to be honest :( DSC_0141.JPG
    Other California special is going great DSC_0140.JPG

  16. Now your babies are only two weeks, you can only turn one light on. that will save more power I guess
  17. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] coming along nicely haven't been on here much due to being busy and no one wants to see plants in veg so here I am she's about 2 weeks into flower I had 2 females and 2 regulars one of which turned out to be a male [​IMG] needless to say he got removed ASAP
