Hello all fellow growers and tokers. After all of my questions and all of my reading, and all of my preparations, my grow has begun, and I figured I should start a journal. I am actually 2 weeks and 2 days in from when the germinated seeds hit the rockwool. If this grow is successful, my next grow will be mothers first, then clones. I have one very mediocre grow under my belt from almost 16 yrs ago. So I want to see that I can do it, then I will grow some moms. J Anyway, some of the pics are crap, they we will better from here on out. My setup is as follows. I am growing 1 White Widow, and 1 Northern Lights. Was also going to do 1 Bubble Cheese, but although the seed popped, she didn't make it. These are feminized seeds from The Attitude. 400W Non Cooled Hydrofarm HPS 2.8 x 2.8 x 5.3 Secret Jardin Tent 18 Gallon Rubberneck res, holding 11 gallons of water/nutes. 30 gal air pump with 2 12â€ air stones Lucas Formula GH Flora (0-8-16) 265 cfm squirrel cage fan sitting on top of the tent attached to a 2 foot piece of ducting that is sitting in the outtake hole of the tent. Sucks air out really well this way. High velocity mini floor fan sitting outside the tent in front of an intake flap. Oscillating fan inside. Carbon filter to come. Tent sits inside a closet in a room that is air conditioned. Temps are remaining steady with the light on at 77 â€“ 80 degrees. Lights off temps are 72 â€“ 74 degrees. Humidity varies from low 40's to mid 60's. I have a humidifier to help on very dry days. I do not yet have a dehumidifier but will get one if necessary. That's about it. So on May 10'th, the seedlings went into rockwool, then into the 5â€ netpots filled with hydroton and into the res. I was worried about them going right under my HID so I ended up putting them too far away and I got a stretch from both of them right from the beginning. I started with 50% strength with the Lucas formula, and the NL suffered. The WW did ok though after moving the light closer, on the 50% strength nutes. But I had to go full strength because the NL was suffering bad as you will see in the pics. The res change happened last Sunday (5/23). The growth from the WW has exploded over the last 3 days. And all the new growth on the NL is nice and healthy looking, but she is just starting to recover growth wise, she has some catching up to do. So they are 16 days old. What do you guys think? Ok, The first and 3rd pic were taken on Saturday. They were 1 week and 5 days old. recovering from a stretch. I changed the res to full strength nutes on Sunday. The other 3 pics were taken today, only 4 days after the other ones. That WW is taking off. And the NL is recovering nicely from nute deficiency. The 1st 2 pics are the NL and the last 3 are the WW.
