I have finally started my first grow. This is the Barrister's Box, at least for now. Got them germed about a week ago. Using bagseed. I've sprouted three. I wanted to do four to give me a 50/50 chance of having some ladies, but once I transplant to their permanent homes, I don't think I can fit more than three pots in this box. They have been in soil for about 5 days. I started them in MG starter soil. I know, I know, MG is shit blah blah. I just didn't have the money for FF right now. But rest assured, when I transplant I will be transplanting into FF. I've heard mixed reviews on going from MG to FF, but I'm going to give it a try and see how it shakes out. The box is an old TV stand/media center I found on the side of the road months ago. I just took out the center shelves, sealed up any holes and added doors on the front and back. I was going to do just a wall on the back, and a door on the front. But I thought that if I can access it from the front and the back it would make things easier since it will get cramped if I'm lucky and get to keep all three plants. I painted the inside a flat white because mylar was more expensive and I just didn't feel like messing with the shit. As you can see, the doors are not painted. That is getting done tonight. After I cut the doors yesterday, I ran out of paint. I did weatherstripping around the doors, but need to add another layer to completely seal the light. The light fixture turned out to be a thing of beauty. I got the idea from another forum. I basically made a square frame of 1.25" PVC, with sockets in T-connections. I am running six 23w CFLs, 5000K for veg. Lights are on 24/0 right now. I will likely keep them on 24/0 for the first two weeks, then switch to 18/6 (unless someone tells me why I should do something different). I wired all the lights in parallel. This morning I noticed two of the lights were not working. They must not be screwed in well because they were working last night. Need to check that tonight as well. I used a piece of galvanized vent pipe cut down and painted white as a reflector. Got chains on the fixture with S-hooks so I can raise or lower. Want to find something like a pulley system or something to make it easier to raise and lower. Modifications for the box to be completed within the next week: Need to finish sealing light leaks Paint inside of doors Cut passive intake and active outtake air flow holes (and get PC fans installed) Also thinking about adding two more lights on the side walls to give more light to lower branches That's about it for now. The plants look like they're stretching a little bit. That could be due to the fact that for the first three days they were in soil, I only had them under two CFLs because my lights weren't up and running yet. Hopefully now with better lighting, and once I transplant to bigger plants they'll start to fill out more. Any suggestions on pot type and size? No way I can get more than one 5 gal bucket in there, so I need something smaller. I'd love to find some smaller square pots. Basically I need to find the smallest pot that will still provide enough room to carry the plant through to harvest. Thanks. Oh, and sorry for the shitty pictures. All I had was a Blackberry. I'll get better pics when I get my camera.
