I figured that I might as well start a journal for my current grow , hopefully I end up with some good results to show . I have 2 grows under my belt , but this will be my first grow using HID's . Here's my setup : .Lowryder #2 seeds (non-fem) x 8 .400 watt HPS .Miracle Grow Organic Choice potting soil (with added perlite) .1-2 gallon pots .3'x3' grow box .All organic nutrients (fish emulsion , bone meal , molasses) .Venting : I am just leaving my closet door open for air exchange . I have a 60watt swamp cooler set up to control temp . .Daytime temp : 75F-82F (78F average) .Night temp : 68F-73F (69F average) .The 400 watt HPS is being kept 12-16 inches away from the tops . .Light Schedule : 18/6 from start to finish *The age of my plants will be counted from the day they sprouted from the soil .* Now , the pics , they are 4 days old here .
