FreshCaliJ's 1st Grow (Vegetative) (Update W/Pix)
    #212992 - 04/07/09 07:47 PM (7 years, 7 months ago)

Double Gum
Fox Farm Ocean Forest
Germinated 3/21/09 (started in rockwool cubes in Green House ontop of heat mat)
Light on 24/0 using a 26w CFL
Temp. = 98* F. Humidity = ?
Superthrive (1ml/Gallon)
16x24x18 Carboard box for storage

^ Well that's what I had to start off my Germination process.

The seedling then sprouted out of the rockwool cube (4 days).
I transplanted the rockwool cube into a 20oz. Styrofome cup and filled it 3/4 full with the soil I had (FFOF) and cut holes through the bottom and sides. I put the cup in the box and left the lights on from 6:30am - 12:30am (using a timer) (12 days).
I now noticed that the leaves were a little droopy on the end of the leaves, so I watered and waited a day. Just stayed the same.
I now got a 5 gallon pot to transplant into. I did so by flipping the 20 oz. Cup upside down and didn't come out so I split the sides (cut with fingers) and came out. I noticed a lot of roots were along the design of the soil that had been in the cup. I then filled the5 gallon pot about 3/5 with my soil and I put the plant ontop. I covered from the bottom of the stem to the sides and evened it out. The leaves really got droopy and decided to mix 1 gallon of tap water with 1mL of superthrive and put it into a bigger box ( 20x48x16) and left the lights on overnight. Since I lost my timer I'm now aiming at a manual 18/6 light on off but from 7am- 1pm dark period.
I also poured 36oz. Of the water mix on top.
This afternoon when I visited them they seemed more up and alive.

Transplanting is stressful, they will recover. You went to a big pot a little quickly so you may see a lag in growth while the roots explore the new medium. Also, in a pot that large, you will not want to water very often at all, be very careful as over-watering is very possible. You also are going to want to get more lights and lower the temps quite a bit. 23w will not be enough to flower with and temps should really stay below 85 ( 70-80 is ideal), you may want to set up some sort of ventilation. Any pics of the space so we can visualize a bit better?

Well today I checked it around 645 am and put the fan towards it low low speeds. Lookin more alive.

Since l lost my timer I've been up and good about turning it off for the past week and a half but today I remembered as I was in class I unplugged the fan but not the light.
Should I just keep doing the routine before, off from 7am-1pm or should I keep it on 24 hours continously.?

Thanks much for the feedback doc, and yes I will b posting up some pix as soon as I get chance to hit up the library. Oh and the temps now are around 72*, lol I meant the 98* was for the germination greenhouse ontop of heat mat.

Q"s:
I have a 26w CFL and would like to add more but limited to space and outlets. But i'm interested.
How Many day light type, light white or bright white types should I get to even out light spectrum.?
Do I need to add lights now?

I'll be posting up pix hopefully tommorow.
Thanks

id keep the plants on 24/0 lights on.
go out and get some 42w cfls or 40w,
also if you can get a mix of 65w and 40-42w cfls.
keep them about 2-4 inches form the tops.

O and for your light choice I know that daylight is good for flowering but I think you want to stick with the cool white for vegging.

I would get both cool and warm lights to have both spectrums.
your gonna end up buying it anyway,so save your self the extra run to the store. btw the plants are looking good keep up the good work.

triptonic - its a vitamin solution used to help plants grow.
