  1. Hey guys
     
    [SIZE=13.5pt]INTRO[/SIZE]
    This is going to be a regularly updated grow journal of my first closet grow. Up until now I haven't been able to do anything besides stealth pc grow boxes but recently I had a good friend of mine come into a large sum of money. He bought his own place and permitted me to have complete access to one of his closets.
    [SIZE=13.5pt]GOAL[/SIZE]
    The goal of this grow is simple. (GOOD MEDICATION FOR CHEAP) feedback and advice is greatly appreciated as I am new to this forum and growing in general.
     
    [SIZE=13.5pt]THE SETUP[/SIZE]
    The closet is 32"wide 23"deep and 7'tall. I started. This grow by purchasing a decent amount of mid quality weed. I managed to come across 6 seeds in an 8 gram bag. I started them on their journey into life with the germination process then left for Wal-Mart.
    I bought
    -12 100watt 6500k cfl's
    -6 100watt 2700k cfl's
    -Car sunshades to use as reflectors
    -Timer
    -Solo cups
    -Miracle grow fertilizer (30-10-10)
    -Adapters for the lights
    -paracord
    -Weather stripping
    -Air fresheners
    -hanging hooks
    -thermostat and humidity gauge
    The closet was constructed the same way u would expect any small closet to be built. I made one large hanging set of lights for now but more will be added as needed. Keep in mind this is just the beginning and many more improvements are to come. After three days the germinated seeds were moved into solo cups of seedling mix dirt purchased at local hardware store. Two days later presto all five rose above the surface with ease. The 18/6 light began. After 1 week the plants were fed their miracle grow for the first time and they loved it. It is currently day ten and they are doing awesome. The room stays about 85F and 35% humidity with door closed and there is no light leakage because of weather stripping. all in all everything is going great.

  9. Well honestly not much ventilation just opening the door regularly and have a small fan circulating air inside. And the smell is handled by those orange air fresheners u can see. They work wanders for small grow ops
     
  10. Where'd you get them? This looks like such a good grow! What kind of soil did you use?
