This will be my first serious grow. ( 1 Bubblegum and 1 Dutch Auto) I have grown males just for practice, and a couple females successfully. For my lighting, i plan to make a square that hold 4 light sockets, in each of them, 46w CFLs. My grow will be under my TV, which is inside the cabinet for the dvd player and such. All will be remove, adjustable hight light fixture on top. Should be enough space to grow for the first 4 or 5 weeks. As for soil, i have repeatedly used my moms garden soil, which has some tasty manure mixed in nicely with my backyard dirt/sand..been settled since early summer. Its very clean and very rich. Last plant i added nutes once and the plant was still strong and beautiful. ventilation will just be a small fan circulating air out, forcing air in from a hole near the lights. a small, discrete, low budget, effective grow is my overall goal. Pictures coming soon Just dropped my bubblegum in the soil, waiting for the dutch to open up. Unlike other grows, these plants i will keep an eye on PH so i can improve my yield.
