    I hate starting this journal at week 8 veg on the "major" 650w hps Church scrog.So before we get to the other lets do that first: 2 5-gal bubblers- 1 GH POWERGROWER+ 1 5 gal homemade bubbler-with drain valve+ fill valve.The homemade jobbie has 3- 10" airstones(the cheap kind that crumble-I wont be using these again) 3-2-1 GH Flora Veg at 5.7 drifting to 6.0 PH (PH-Up-Down)+R.O water(always).I change the res every 10 days-flushing with plain 5.5 PH RO.These 2 are fem seed plants(yay pre-flowers) The tent is 4x4-6 ft high-dimple mylar lined.I use a cool-tubed 400w hps(Sylvania) with a 400cfm inline fan.Adding airsock tomorrow.And a 250w hps Hortilux(my first lamp).Both Lumatek ballasts.It's stays around 80 winter.I'll be trying out a water-cooled 1000w hps this spring/summer- see if we can maintain 80 come July.The last pic posted was taken at lights out(18/6) today.At which time misted the girls with House and Garden foliar spray.Actually the last 2 are from today-the first is from the 16th.

  2. my 150w hps cab(I really just put everything together I have because I ended up with 40 clones from the gals)+ 156w of cfl-6500K for the 7 day veg-2700K for 12/12.I made the bubbler-splurged for the big pump and fancy airstones.This is a 16 gallon bubbler-I put 8 sites in er but I'm only using 6.

  3. and finally...picking from my "boneyard"- a modified homebox xs-shrunk down to(because I stole parts from it) to 2x2x 28" high.It was all tore up, but I'm glad I kept it.And I finally get to play with my 2-200 (true watts) CFL's .LOL-this one ghetto-fab...dig the box fan exhaust.I did a little seamstress work(with zip ties) and basically sewed the thing up.

  4. I keep my nute regimine very simple.I'll add a little Open Sesame-5-45-19 during heavy bloom, maybe, but thats it.My cloning method is cave-man.Rootone plugs+ Botanicare Power Cloner(30 mils-not the 60 they recommend) so far-100% success on the clones.
     
  5. I had to get into the tent right before lights on-snapped a couple shots

  15. I made this 60CFM powered plenum/filterbox from foil tape, a cardboard box, some old cfl reflectors modified into little "riser" ducts attached, air-tight to the fans-like a curb-reducer.Inside the box are cut-to size charcoal filter screens.In this little cab-this thing pumps.Temps never above 80.Which...this strain seems to handle

  16. the larger 8" fan taps directly into the plenum via dove-tail connection on my ghetto duct-the smaller taps(always airtight) in the side of the filter box- the little 16" long-10"x10" "plenum" builds up some decent pressure- jetting the hot air up, and out.
     
  17. day 3 of flower for the 650w hps scrog/ day 4 of veg for the 150w hps tent/ day 3 of veg for the 400w CFL tent
