stealth grow, any hints or tip??
    #347348 - 01/13/10 11:46 PM (6 years, 10 months ago)

just set this up recently and want to know if there are any items i am leaving out?


inside....


specs are..

plant - afghan kush(although one kinda looks 50/50 indica, sativa)
age - around 7 and a 1/2 wks.
lighting - 3, 23watt Cfl bulbs(assume i need more for flowering)
nutrients - currently just started using mg all purpose.
back story - my buddy had a couple extra plants and decided to donate them to me assuming they would go to a good home.  got them around 14days ago, threw em in my makeshift grow box and has evolved a bit since. 

the plants...





now to the question, how can i improve upon this setup to make sure i can get a healthy crop off these two girls??  any advice, tips, criticism, or any comments let me know. 

thanks in advance..

Well to improve it your going to need to get rid of the polyfill you have stuffed in there.  Is that the method your using for FAE??  If so You should change it, put some computer fans on there and have them running 24/7.  And.....When you switch to flowering they are going to out grow that box QUICK!! 


Well, They look really good though man.  What kinda nutes are you using??

the poyfill is just remnants of an old mushroom grow, i am using mg all purpose, and if u didnt notice in the pic i do have a fan running in from the bottom right corner.  thx for the advice tho, and as i stated earlier anything helps so keep the comments coming.

you should seriously consider cutting off the top 6" or so of the plant so it starts growing out rather than just up. as Hawk said, once you start flowering they're going to bust right out of that thing

You should ditch the Miracle Grow.  Yes it can work, but it's not the best man.  I have seen a lot of problems with it.  Go with Fox Farm if your worried about cost man, it's a great nutrient line and affordable.


I figured the poly fill was from myco cult.  If you take them out though it will increase your airflow that much more. 


What do you have planed to do when you induce flowering??  THey will out grow that container quick.

Do it now and they wil def. out grow the enclosure, hold off and it will get out of hand. 


No you don't have to gut any off to try and keep them manageable in that container.  You can start doing something called low stress training.  You take the top most growing branch and tie it down to train it to go whee you want.  This also tells the plant to start making the other branches grow faster.  This would be a good way to go about it in my opinion.

Tie them down with string, I prefer string that is synthetic so that mold/mildew can't grow on it.
