1000w HPS, Soil-less Grow #1
    #521404 - 01/31/11 12:18 AM (5 years, 9 months ago)

So I'm pretty much just diving into this head first.  It's officially my first grow and I'm trying to do it right, without cutting "m'any" corners but still staying on a budget.  I'm using a 96"L x 54"W x 84"H free standing enclosure made of two by fours' and wrapped in  panda tarp.  It has one twenty by twenty inlet box fan, one twenty by twenty exhaust box fan, and two interior osculating fans on separate planes.  Also inside I have a 1000w HPS light and seven young and aspiring ladies.  I'm growing from all clones and the strains include; 2 Kandy Kush, 2 Lemon Skunk, Northern Lights #1, Shaman, and Colorado Cough.  The clones we're placed in the enclosure approximately seventy-two hours ago (1-28-11) and I'm planning on vegging over the next two to three weeks.  The soil-less mixture I'm using for this grow is Sunshine's advanced mixture #4.  The nutrients and boosters that will be used are Botanicare's; Cal-Mag Plus, Liquid Karma, Pure-Blend, and Hydroplex. In addition to Atami's Bloombastic and Humbolt County's Own; Gravity, Purple Maxx (for the Shaman), and Snow Storm Ultra.  The enclosure's been maintaining a constant temperature between 72-78 degrees F with a humidity of about 15-20%.  I know the humidity is a little low but right now I don't have too many options on how to bring it up.  So far I've been trying to ease the plants though that stressful period from the dispensary nutrients and light to my own with minimal upset by easing them in gradually.  I've been watering once a day in the evening slowly upping the nutrients diluted in about two gallons of water.  They're all starting to perk up a bit with the exception of one of the Kandy kushes which hopefully will turn around after a little TLC. In addition that Kandy Kush also suffered from some dirt mites which has been remedied with Safe's organic bug stuff.  Anyway, like I said this is my first grow and any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated either positive or constructive.  I'll try to update with pictures at least once a week or so with plant statuses and grow op numbers temp, humidity, light height, nutrient mixtures, and so on. Thanks for checking it out and following a long!

Cheers! -The Roots-







More to Come!

*UPDATE* -Day 10-

So in the last ten days I've moved to a full strength nutrient line and added Humboldt's root booster as well as General Hydro's Bio Weed.  All of the plants have flourish and are looking extremely healthy with no major issues.  Another recent addition was a irrigation system because I got lazy of carrying a watering pot.  As always more to come soon! Cheers!

I'm still sort of playing that by ear, the Shawmen and one of the Kandy Kushes are lagging quite a bit between the other ladies.  However, my original plan was to veg them between three and four weeks, hopefully we're still on schedule to make that happen.
