And the journey begins...
    #357094 - 02/03/10 04:26 AM (6 years, 9 months ago)

Hello Growery!
Well, I've recently discovered my green thumb! I started over at the Shoomery with multiple mushroom batches, and now I've decided to grow my own smoke too!
I've been saving these three seeds that I got from some premium kush. Out of a whole QP there were only 3!
Anyway, I just planted them today...
I'll be posting pictures from start-to-finish!

Decent size flower pots in the closet, grow medium is some soil I requisitioned from other flower pots, and believe it or not, I'm using X-mas lights. I've got them strung up in the closet in such a way...

I'll be posting pics soon, ya'll can tell me what you think! Thanks for the support!

I've been on the shroomery since 2002 :smile: Recently moved over myself as well...

But let me tell you: What is good for shrooms is not necessarily good for the greens...light spectrum is different etc...

Those lights are useless, even as secondary lighting, even to grow seedlings. Do a search for CFL, you can get a functional veg setup for $10. There is a certain amount of required reading to grow cannabis indoors, if you don't study up on the basics like lighting you're not going to get anywhere.

I would say looking at the size of the room there you should aim for maybe 4 or 5 CFL's of 40-65w each (actual wattage not equivalent)

I didn't see how many plants you plant to grow but I read somewhere 27w for each plant was bare minimum and my CFL box has 178w for one plant.

Don't dispare though one CFL will be fine for a group of seedlings then as they grow you can just buy and add lights as needed you shouldn't need to go spend a bunch of money all at once.

Also incase you don't know you want the 6500k(blue) spectrum bulb for vegging (24 or 18 hour light cycle) and 2700k(red) bulbs for flowering. If you want to keep it low budget buy a mix of red and blue and use more red for flowering. the plants just like the red better in flowering it's like a late summer sunset.

hello magichombre,
yes shrooms need little to no light to really fruit!
I have a 45 watt cool white bulb in a huge light shade, (since i quit growing shrooms after my 15lb bag of hpoo and straw was cantamed) i just used the incubator as one for starting seedlings as they need high Rh and a temp around the same to get going.
Ive been using the 45 watter for 4 plants and until they get bigger you don't really need anything more, just make sure its close enough as the cool white makes it hard to burn the plants!
as for budding you really need something special like a 400 watt hps or an led grow light(such as the ufo) one with high output leds, which wont raise the power bill much and not produce heat like the hps will.
you can check out my grow log to see teh results of the cfl to start them and then the led to veg and fruit.

id hate to see a good kush strain not do its best, PM me if you need any pointers I'm kinda a noob but have been doing it for like 3 or 4 years now outside.

hope you get a good female!

If you can add more cfl's do it.  Id recommend a shop light and a couple of cool white t12's actually.  It'll cost you up to $20 but it will also ensure that you are lighting the entire length of that box.  I wouldn't recommend them for flowering though.  Do you know what kind of soil you have?  I saw you say you got it from other flower pots but no brand or anything.  The journey of discovering your green thumb has begun.  I would suggest you read jorge cervantez's marijuana horticulture book asap.  That will give you a good understanding of the process from the planning stage through enjoying your final product and long term storage of your harvest.  Good luck and welcome to the Growery!
