Hey guys . I want to start off by saying that I have used information found on this forum very much in building my knowledge of growing to a point where I said "screw it, lets do itttt" so i'm going to start my first grow very soon. As of right now, i have 10 seeds in a shot glass, waiting for them to sink so i can throw them in some paper towels. I want to keep this thread updated with pics of my grow, and keep it as sort of a grow journal. I would also like to ask some questions if I have some bumps in the road. So lets start off by talking about my set up, shall we? The room: is a quartered off section of my detached garage, which is then divided into 2 rooms. The room on the left is just storage for growing equip., and the room to the right is the grow room. All of this is behind a peg board wall with a hidden door, and its pretty damn hard to spot unless you already knew it was there (pics comming soon!) The final dimensions of the grow room are 3'6" by 3'9". the ceiling is on a slant, but the lowest side is 7 ft. It is painted in flat white The equipment: The light is a 600 watt (mh and hps convert.) with an air cooled hood (not a cooltube). Id post a link of the exact one but i'm not sure if that allowed? The fan is a 4 inch, 190 cfm inline, with a 18 inch long carbon filter the exhaust will be ported like this --> carbon filter>ducting>air cooled light>ducting>fan>duct to outside the room into the main shop The grow: The seeds i have are 10 that my dealer claims "come from some dank" but, I really wouldn't care as long as its mj for my first grow. I plan to veg for 40-50 days, and top my plants and try to get 2 or 4 mains My goals are set high for a beginner: out of the 10 seeds, I want to end up with no less than 4 females, and pull 2 oz's of cured from each. now, i'm not gonna be throwing a hissy fit if i don't meet 2 oz per plant, whatever i get, i get. Whew, long post (and first post on any forum ever, actually o.o) Tell me what you guys think! and try to keep this bad boy full of posts!
