This is my first time growing a plant, I read that when you have no clue how to grow that the best method is to learn with a bubble bucket, so I bought one. It was on sale for $25 and I got Jungle Juice Nutrients, which was on sale for $15 on Amazon. (Google search: '5gal bubble bucket' and you should find one on sale. http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Nutrients-Jungle-Juice-Bloom/dp/B008CQ92M6/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1369372073&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=jungle+juice+nutrients These nutrients will last at least 3 plants, right meow I am on day 2 and I only had to use a few drops, if it stays at this rate, I will be able to grow at least 8 plants with these nutrients if I am measuring carefully) I also bought a 10.5" diameter clamp light fixture with reflector, and a couple 6500k CLF lights 1.6k lumens each. The recommended is at least 3k lumens per sq. ft. 6-8 inches from plant. The grow room is a part of my closet, about 2'x3'x5'. 2' wide, 3' long, and 5' to work with in height. I used a 75sq ft tin foil roll to cover my grow area, just don't let it wrinkle too much, it is cheap but works very effectively. My items list: -Bubble Bucket ($20-$60) -Nutrients ($15-$80) -CFLS ($6-$25) -Clamp light ($8-$16) -Tin Foil ($1-$4) -Distilled water 4gallons+ ($5) -Fan ($5-$20) -Duct Tape ($5) -My cheap bastard ways (Priceless) Bubble buckets add more cost than just getting a 5gal bucket with soil, but I feel that a bubble bucket has a lot fewer problems after you have found out how to balance your pH level 5-6.5 (5.5-6 recommended) My Set Up: Day One: Had some trouble with pH level so was up late trying to figure it out, let the air stone mix the water for about 15-20 minutes after adding base/acid, before checking pH level again because you need to wait and let it mix. She is only just beginning, but so far she is still healthy after 12 hrs. Nutrients mixed in was 8ml of Micro, and 3.5ml of Grow. I went with 1/4 of recommended nutrients because with CFL grow your plant doesn't use as much energy so it doesn't need the nutrients as bad, if you put the full amount of nutrients recommended you could fry your plant from too much nutrients. I check on my baby every couple hours when I am home for now until I know the security of the bucket growing method. Day Two: I decided to separate the two main branches of the baby plant by using twine, and softly tying them to the side of the bucket, I want light to reach down on the bottom leaves in the middle of the two main branches. I added a small 8" clamp light to one side of my grow room so the plant can get more light. It is a 2700k which are usually only used for flowering but the extra color you give out the better and healthier your plant will grow so I am at 2/3 6500k, 1/3 2700k, tomorrow I will probably add another 6500k to the 8" clamp light and let this baby veg at 3/4 6500k. I am experimenting, so I will let you know whether the 2700k is worth putting up, so far it seems my plant is soo very happy to see that light up but I guess I will find out in the morning. The plant grew 1" over night, and she is growing very well, the tips of her lower branches are getting white so I checked the pH level and keeps getting higher, so I have to keep adding a little amount of acid to try and counter this, so far I have noticed some of the white already go away on some leaves but I will find out if I fixed the problem tomorrow. Day Three: So far the plant has been looking better, the white tips have gone on all but the bottom leaves, and she has grown close to a whole inch overnight! now standing at 7" she is getting closer to her goal! The pH is up again at 6.1-6.5, so I added the smallest amount of acid, I will have to keep checking it but it was slowly getting more green....I will take a picture tomorrow of when I check the pH vial... I switched my 2700k with a 5000k cfl bulb, hopefully it will help the plant grow more quickly with more direct light! Sorry for the giant pictures, I have added CALiMAGic and it pretty much helped my plant come back to life. I am waiting for some Silica Blast, SuperThrive, Epsom Salt, FloraNectar, FloraBloom, and some Rapid Root to arrive in the mail. I will start using Silica Blast, SuperThrive, and Epsom salt (When needed) to my next batch of nuts this thursday if they arrive in time, and if not she will start getting some FLora Nectar on week 4 which I will probably start moving her to flowering at that time. DAY 11 Big branch is at 11" smaller is at 10". Thank you for showing interest, and I hope you choose to follow me on this adventure. Comment at will ! Sincerely, Obsolete.
