cfl closet growing spectacular
    #112313 - 08/21/08 12:46 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

my old grow thread is expired as the plant i was growing is now a mother, so i'm starting my new grow thread.

I now have my entire closet devoted to my grow.  space is about 6 feet tall, 8 feet wide, and 26 inches deep.  I just built a frame out of 2"x4"s and am making a sort of grow tent with panda film around that, it divides the closet exactly in half and will be my flowering room. 

Currently growing:
1 super silver haze mother in 5 gal pot of foxfarm ocean forest
10 super silver haze clones rooting in DWC bucket
1 commercial indica strain growing from seed in a 5 gal pot of my own soil mix
3 nirvana blue mystic seedlings in my ebb and flow system
3 super silver haze clones in my ebb and flow system


also 2 little basil seedlings in the pot with the super silver mom, and a rockwool cube of basil seedlings taking up empty space in the ebb and flow system




my mother plant, tina, grown up from the baby featured in my old grow thread



clones, left foreground is brooklyn :lol:



this will be the vegetative side of my closet, where the mothers and such live.


as far as lighting:  on the veg side right now i've got 5400 lumens from 6500K CFLs, covering two small mothers (one immature still) and a bucket of cuttings.  on the (soon to be) flower side i've got 8400 lumens covering 3 clones, spectrum split 60:40  on 3500K and 6500K.  also got 1600 lumens of 6500K on the three seedlings, that bulb is down next to the seedlings themselves.

random pic update - i have my closet in flower and buds are forming.  here's one of the blue mystics:





and an odd thing i noticed is the different leaf types between my two blue mystic girls (from seed).  same batch of seeds, wildly different looking plants:





the same strain, from the same seed pack, in teh same identical conditions from day 1!  i dont get it, one looks very indica and one looks very sativa.

Looking great; you definitely need to update more frequently. :jah: I'm sure the recent unpleasantness didn't help with that though. :frown:

I'm sure I was telling you to expect that with Nirvana's stains. :grin: The reason they are cheaper is because they haven't invested time into stabilizing their strains by running successive generations, paying close attention to selecting certain phenotypes, etc. etc. etc. Essentially, they are f2's of the popular strains of other breeders, and f2's usually mean a lot of variation in phenotypes will result. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially if you're looking to grow out a lot of stuff to find good expressions of the genetics for one's own breeding/finding a good mother, or if you are simply looking for cheaper seeds that will still have some good stuff come up. One plus on the latter note is that you can get different highs, all from within the same strain. :tongue:

yeah.  i also got a male that looked very indica-ish, collected pollen from that, and i think a little got dropped in the grow area, so i may get some F2 blue mystics out of this grow, and blue mystic X super silver haze.  definitely would be cool
