First grow with brand new grow tent!

Discussion in 'Indoor Grow Journals' started by FuzzyNugz, Mar 31, 2016.

  1. Hello everyone I started growing this year with a grow cabinet that is 2x2x5 featuring a deep water culture/top feed drip system. A few months, ten heartaches, and countless nute deficiencies later, I've decided to go ahead and upgrade and get a grow tent. I went with the Growlab GL145, two SunSystem 315 LEC fixtures, growing Girl Scout Cookies in FoxFarms light soil. [​IMG]

    These are trailing behind my other Girls Scouts that are in my cab. I am very excited and after figuring out how to properly ventilate my tent which is 5x5x7 I transplanted my young ones and am hoping to see success. I am excited to be able to grow both soil and hydro as both have their benefits and pitfalls. Soil has the best benefit in being simple! I will be posting pics and updates for both grows this coming month. As for now I'm tired as shit been setting things up all day please sub and stop by tomorrow for more! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  2. My new grow space!!! I am so excited about what is going to go down in here! It was hit by the need of the morning. The temp was perfect until about 10am this morning. I think it's going to be AC time pretty soon!

  4. Update on the grow I started in my new tent. The girls are not doing so well. I transplanted them a few days ago and they had little to no browning now they look burnt! I'm pretty sure it's light burn as I was using two of my new 315 watt LEC fixtures. Even though they were like three feet from the girls it still burned them I guess. I don't think it's nute burn because I'm using Fox Farms Light Warrior in hope that it wouldn't burn them. So I turned one LEC fixture off and just going to see how they do moving forward, I'll use both for flowering. This is just to keep note a track of progress any advice and tips are welcomed!

  5. All I can do at this point is wait for new growth to see how they will be. Still only using one of my lights to avoid burning them any further, lights are about 20 inches front the girls so that shouldn't be too close. Or too far. Hopefully in the next week I'll see some improvement!

    Here's a small update. Watered my girls with a mild solution of, word is that it helps with transplant shock. I still haven't learned the reason for my leaves turning brown actually light tan at the tips, this has been the struggle of my first grow. [​IMG]

    I clipped a few dying leaves off from last time hopefully they will start focusing on new growth and I will see some improvement over the next few days to a week.

    This has been a frustrating learning experience. Im dedicated to learning this craft of growing so any advice and tips are welcomed.

  7. Subbed up! One of those lights is definitely good for now. Have you been overwatering? What's the pH of the water you're using?


    The world is in your hands, mine are in the dirt.

  8. Did you move them from the top fed to soil?

  9. They are in Rock Wool, they were in a hydroponic cloner from seeds transplanted to soil. The water is PH'd to 6.3 that's what I hear is a good range for soil.

  10. Only watered when the pots got lite. Even when in the hydro system I would let the cubes dry out some before watering.

  12. Alright, the girls are recovering from a slow start and being light bleached a lil bit. Here are some more pics! Right now there in Fox Farms Light Warrior soil so they won't get burnt. I'm watering with RO water PH'd at 6.3, temps have been in between 70-78°F, RH 50-70% which the plants seem to like! Here are some photos I know they are some lil raggamuffins right now but they're recovering. I've also measure the the run off at 6.0PH and 600 ppm which sounds good to me. Also Every other watering I am supplementing the soil with light nutrient water at about 200ppm same PH OF 6.3, additives are sugar daddy, roots 66, and thrive alive green.

    Spread peace, love, and music!!!

  13. Update.

    Just an update on the girls. I moved the light closer, also watered them a few days ago with a lite nutrient solution of Thrive alive green, roots 66, and sugar daddy. It's been about a week and a half since I've transplanted them. I've stopped the blessing of the leaves dead in its tracks, just need a few weeks to recover and see how the pick up.

  14. Hey guys so I decided to move some other GSCs I had vegging in my grow cabinet into the tent since they are bigger than the other girls you have been following. These are in a hydroponic system and the smaller girls in soil will continue vegging under T5s in my grow cabinet. Here are some pics.
    I will keep you updated on both grows through this journal. The tent is 5x5x7 and equipped with two 315 Watt LEC's for max coverage and yield potential. Currently only using one of the LECs, will use other as needed. I'm going to build a trellis and use the SOG method which I hear these plants thrive under.

    Thanks for following!!!

  16. So your going soil now great, This is what I would do to those girls. I would transplant to a their final tubs and bury them all the way to first set of leaves. If they are still recovering wait a week. damn son worried about the smell, those are some filters :) IDK if those are yellow leaves from when you cloned or not, but to me that's a sign of nute def probably Potassium. You really are committed, you've put out some cash. I grow in a 4x4 tent and I use just 1 6" inline on a speedster controller and I don't even need a fan inside the tent. It vents so perfectly that my fan speed is my temp control. Your going to have issuses figuring outthe rooms air dynamics you basically have a room inside room and now have to deal with neg air pressure or positive depending how you connect your fans. I spent 2 weeks just placing fans and running ducting to find this vey niced dialed in setup heres my room, the exhaust from top is on 24/7 and the port is open 24/7 temps even on a 80 degree day stayed below 80 without ac and its in a 2nd story bedroom. see no fan that's my deathstar girl
    I use 2 fans sorry but one vents only the light it doesn't vent the inside of tent

  17. I am actually growing four in soil and there hydroponically. The soil ones are in Fox Farms Light Warrior Soil, I will go full strength on the soil on the next transplant. Yes I am very committed! I read every night about what to do and how to care for them, and I am falling in love with these plants all over again! Nice setup you have and you girl looks healthy! When I transplant the smaller ones I will do as you said, sounds like a good idea!
