Yea that and there really isn't any reason to have a seedling under a MH/HPS.

Yeah my research has led me to this method of using the t12's for the first two weeks.  That's all that's really needed to start em off right.  On saturday the plants will be 2 weeks old.  I will do some more research to refresh my memory about light hight.

I dont know how i missed this log Furrowed. Glad I didnt miss too much. Pulling up a chair and enjoying the show. Lets see more pics. Your goal is to have more pics in your log than mine. JK. That would be too much work.

and lets face it, I only have so many pics because it is more than one grow in my log(WW, Outdoor Piss, and now Mystic,Mango,Mazar) and showing the mothers status and grow room changes. All not needed but I feel it helps people better understand and helps them replicate it if they like it.

i feel ya on that.  It is good to give the audience a sense of the space you are working with and the equipment too.  I see a lot of logs where all the pictures are of the plants only.  I like my logs loaded with pics.  Sometimes I try to follow too many at once and just end up all mind fucked over who's where and growing what using what equipment after a week or so.  but ya, i have enjoyed watching your log develop over the last few months.  shit turned out wonderful!

You got me curious so I just looked back over the folder that I keep all my pics from my first grow in.  It's 5.78 GB and 2,385 pictures.  :lol:

a Sony CyberShot 8.1mp that has had the settings tweaked by an old ammature photographer, me. Took me forever to get it set how I like(wife's camera, Mine uses film). But all of the pics are strait off of the camera, no photoshop, even though some of them look like it.

Right on.  they make some really good point and shoot cameras these days.  I've got an old HP that shoots at like 3 MP and i used that for the first part of my last grow then in Feb. i got a digital slr.  I am still learning how to use it.  I am really not too happy with the quality of the pictures I've been taking since I got the thing.  Hopefully I can figure out this aperture shit.

Clay pebbels aren't they? Just a medium to hold your hydroponic nutrients.

They're porous stone like balls. Very light. They soak up nutrient solution that is probably poured through from some kind of top feeding water pump. The roots of the plant grow throughout it. So they get support for the plant, and can feed on the nutrient solution. And take in water.

yep!  I like em.  I just don't like having to clean them.  I don't think i posted a picture of my bedroom floor covered with those little pellets.  I had an air mattress that i turned upside down (not inflated) and layed dozens of towels on top and took the pellets from an h202 and h20 soak to the rinse station then drained them then threw them on top of the towels and put a couple fans on em to dry em out.  After I did that with approx. 100 liters of the things I threw them back and forth and uncovered bottom ones and just got em all dry then put them into baskets by hand so that if any roots were still on them from the last grow they could be taken off.  Needless to say, it took a long time.  But i had my music and weed!  buddy's right about em though.  You can look up 'Hydroton' or 'explanded clay pellets' and find a bunch of stuff on them.  A lot of hydroponic growers use this medium as opposed to say a deep water culture system (DWC) which just suspends the roots and shoots them with nutrient solution every so often. 

Also, the reason i haven't shown that picture is because i had a ton of other shit in there that's in the pictures that i dont want to publish.  I set up the MH light today and took down the other two lights.  I've had the light up for a good 4.5 hours now and the temps have fluctuated between 76-78 degrees.  I think that's ok for now.  it's harder than i thought it would be to cool that room down.  I've got a fan blowing in there now.  I am about to flush this thing out.  I am going to run some clean water (ph adjusted to 5.8) through it so that any residue left on the clay pellets won't be introduced into the active circulation cycles.  I did this last grow to.  Just a common sense step.  Although I think the nutrient solution I use makes more of a mess than anything else.  It's good shit though.  GH FloraNova Grow.  Pictures will be put up later on tonight.  I've still got to go on my weekly 'drive around and smoke a joint tour.'  Here's some info on Hydroton...

here are 91 threads with the word 'Hydroton' in the title on icmag.  If ya really want to learn about it that will keep you busy and make you a pro at dealing with the stuff.

They also provide an environment rich with oxygen for great root growth.  I should have taken pictures of the roots as I was cleaning up my last grow, but as you may recall i was a bit panic-stricken at that moment.

Just for the info, they are expanded clay pelets that are called Hydrotron and they hold no nutrients, thats why they work so well for hydro. If they soaked nutrients up, it would burn your plants over night.

Really? So that must mean that nutrient solution gets trapped between them. Slowly, giving your roots time to absorb it.
