Well after 2 years of not being able to grow, I'm back at it again... Starting this journal off a wee bit later than most, but what can I say other than I'm a stoner. But here's what I'm working with. veg room: 2x2x5 homemade grow box, aero cloner (homemade), to root cuttings currently using 160w of 4 ft fluro's (way too much wattage, but kinda in a money bind atm.) Once cuttings have rooted I throw in a 70w mh to get cuttings up to 12-15 inches before inducing flowering. flower room: the dimensions of the flower room can vary as its set up on the inside of my walk-in closet. the veg box is also inside the closet. the closet itself is 5x5x8. so yeah, and stuff.... but i am currently using 400w hps over the flowering area that is about 2 1/2 foot wide and about 3 feet in length. so gettin 133 watts per sq foot, or thereabouts. the strains i currently am growing are grape ape and jack herer. Never grown the ape before but the jack has been a personal favorite of mine since i started growing in 2000. Like I stated before though, had to take a 2 year vacation from growing (had my first little one) But now that he's a bit older and I'm less paranoid, I'm ready for another go round. So, about whats goin on now since like I mentioned before, starting this off a bit behind schedule, but oh well. The cuttings in the pic were taken 3 days ago, and have already forced out new growth, so lookin forward to gettin that 160 watts outta there and gettin that 70 mh in there. I hate wasting that extra 90 watts just to root cuttings, but as mentioned before cant really afford a little 2 ft t5 set up atm. So i'll just have to make due til i can update my old technology with the new wave of lighting.... t5 fluros and really interested in LED's as well. Would like to wait a while longer before jumpin on board with led's though. ummm, oh yeah... the flowering room was switched to 12/12 on sept 1st. So its day 10 on the pics for the flowering girls.
