Lols I might still get one. I really want it for the moisture meter as I still haven't learnt how to tell when my plants get thirsty.
How's the moisture meter perform?
Also, did u get it from eBay? Or hydro shop?

I picked one up from ebay for $3.80  came from hong kong and took 3 weeks to get.  Then I decided to go hydro.  Make a good stir stick now...  lol

Day 12

So after going to the hydroponic store and picking up a lamp kit I came home to discover to my chagrin that it was the wrong socket type (stupid digital ballasts :lol:), after an extra trip to home depot I remedied this problem. After another 30 minutes of wiring I had the thing glowing like a candle. Unfortunately I spent the last of my funds getting the socket assembly (or until friday).




After I got back from work I decided to string everything up just to see how it looked. Afterwards I decided to run it for a while to see how it seemed. After about an hour I touched the ballast; not smart. Burnt my finger. I soon decided it best to figure out a good housing option before I run it more full time.



I decided to put the plants into their new pots with their new soil. Their old soil was feeling kinda ookey. After an hour or two I had all the plants repotted and positioned in their new home. Another 30 minutes or so and I had all the lights going for a few pictures. I let everything cool down removed the HPS (see above) and watered my little guys and gals.




Also, I fucked up the pictures while uploading. So they'll be here tomorrow or later tonight.

*Update*

Ok, so now instead of trying to have the ballast near the bulb I moved it toward the plug end. I than placed the Ballast and capacitor in a deep pan than placed it on a short box. I than strang my HPS up about a foot (give or take 2 inches) above the pots.



These were just the best two pictures, Most the others look the same give or take a couple days growth, one of them has some minor burn damage, this new open air thing should be better, I figured I wouldn't bore you with 9 pictures of baby pot.



Also, Mary Jane is making me sleep on the couch. Its amazing what women can do, especially when they are as bright as her.

Ok so moved my HPS to about 6-8 inches from the top of the nearest plant. I was able to put my hand under it with no discernible difference from the air around it. So basically now my giant pig tail HPS are on the same plane. Also in an effort to try to make a hood I wrapped some aluminum around the top of the lamp assembly.

Also I can't believe how much more awesome this soil is. So much looser and fluffier. Holds water much differently though. Gonna take some getting used to. Think I'm going to use the moisture meter until I can get a better idea.

Nice. Our plants look to be at the same development level.
My plants are older, but are delayed compared to yours from spending its first 2 weeks outdoors.

Let me know how well the moisture meter works. I've been thinking about getting one.

It seems to work fairly well. I ran a test where I dried some soil to the bone and basically made mud in two seperate cups. It seemed to read the two as vastly different, Though it seemed to favor the center (The dry cup read a little wetter than what I would have rated and the wet was a little drier than what I would have called it).

Two things I would suggest if you get one of these: Read the instuctions on how deep to insert it for PH vs. Moisture (it does seem to make a difference). Also I tested mine against some soil straight from the bag, than instead of waiting for it to get all the way dry (on the meter) I just wait until it goes to where the other soil is.


Yeah man been watching your grow a lot. I'm actually basically doing a side by side comparison, because apart from the genetics (and the way you started) there seem to be a lot of similarities in space, wattage, etc. I'd say with the extra 100 watts you should pull ahead; but all my lights are so close, and still feel fine on heat so I dunno. It seems like everytime I check the little boogers they've grown, I usually check them 2 times a day once when I wake up (between 10AM-12PM) and once when I get home from work (usually 12:30ish AM).

I seem to check on them alot more often everytime I change something.
Since being put in the tent I check on them many times a day, as if I'm trying to catch the instant they grow lol
After a week or two when the novelty wares off I'll check on em once every day or two.

How are your mushrooms coming along?

I placed an order last week and now I'm waiting for them to be delivered. Tasmanian psilocybe cubes. I've got a copy of lets grow mushrooms and its looks heaps complicated, lols
I can't get a syringe past Aussie customs so I had to settle with a spore-print.

I check as often as I can. Because of work thats the most I can check. But I look in on them multiple times during the times I can.

Mushrooms are much harder to start but once you get them going they are easy peasy (sit and watch the white stuff take over the other colored stuff (substrate)). The biggest thing is to get a pressure cooker or something to sterilize everything with.

DAY 16

So this weekend has been pretty good. Much less running helter and skelter. Picked up an oz of some really good mids suprising though that may sound. I got paid on friday (yay having more than 20 dollars to my name). Found out that my friend who taught me to grow (and including me 1 of 4 who know about what I'm doing) got his job in AZ so he can go back to growing.



Just this morning I gave them their first fertilizer watering. On the first two plants I accedently gave them 2 tbspoons, instead of 2 teaspoons, but thankfully I realized what I did before I finished watering the second plant. I imediately poured plain PH'ed 7 water until the pots ran off a little. Hope it doesn't hurt the little gals.



The runt has taken off, the one that was burning a tad stopped and is recovering nicely. All the leaves are brilliant and perky. I'm even being able to start telling which are heavey indica and which are heavy sativa. They are growing so fast now that the 4th node is barely up and its already working on its 5th.



I've constructed a roudementry hood for all of the lights except the one on the wall (that fucker fell so many times too... Most obnoxious light ever).  I can also scratch fan  off my list, work gave me one free. Well actually it was the guy who gave me the lights, but he just picked it up before me because he left before I did. They were redoing a bunch of stuff and giving away all kinds of fans, crummy desk chairs, and desk drawers LOL.



Questions

Any ideas on a better hood? Mine is just aluminum made into a hood shape xP.

What should I look for on the two plants that I over nutrified, incase I did fuck up (it is just the fish fert that I fucked up, nothing else)?

Quad tap ballast means it can recieve the four standard inputs, not have 4 outputs right?



Any tips for paranoia and stress? Its not too bad for the most part. But if I'm sitting for too long undistracted it can be.

Besides B+W poly and Mylar what else is kind of like those two that will work well? Just wanting to keep my options open.

How long do you guys think I should wait to flip to flowering. I was thinking at about 6-12 inches. I'd ideally like some x-mas/new years bud.

So I put my tarp door up for my closet. I hope they don't get too hot. I'm sick and tired of sleeping on the couch. Also it doesn't seem to be entirely light proof. actually it was a little less than I was hoping. I was going to go down to the head store to get a tapestry to cover it. The fan I got (as I just got it) was a standing fan with the stand kind of broken. So I just laid it on its side at one end of the closet. seems to work just fine. Hope it doesn't blow the plants too much; I have it on the lowest setting and it still seems kind of fast. My fan actually forced me to remove my "hood." this is a good thing because now I have to actually come up with something  :thinker:  better, and more perminate. Or I could just cover it all in mylar or B+W poly LOL.

I would also like to call BS on my fish fertilizer being deoderized.

Holy crap, it's soo incredible how quick those boogers grow. I figured out my fan situation. I put it up right and even though its blowing like 2-3 feet over the plants its powerfull enough that the plants seem to be getting a nice breeze from the down draft. Think I might go down to the hydroponic store and get some nutes and inquire about panda film.

Also I was thinking positioning the screen about 8 inches maybe 10, any opinions. What make good screens? Do they make plastic chicken wire?

I also began the war on dirt in my house. I'm making a conscious effort to get rid of my clutterous ways. I began this morning and as a result was able to get my tarp door up and, also my fan is running smooth. Which means wire gets to sleep in a proper bed tonight; fuck yes!!!

Day 19

Still marveling as some of the plants have leaves that will double in the course of getting to check them (10 hours apart). I've since added 4 more 26 watt CFL so woot, an extra 100 watts (I had to get socket splitters to do this). Home depot must have had important company or a slow day, everyone was super (Maybe even over) helpful. I'm not going to bore you with a bunch a drivel. And it's been an irksome day but I've grinned an bared it; but now I just want to smoke. As such it will mostly be a picture update, as well as a brief synopsis of the worst.



I noticed one of my leaves seemed super curly, not going to panic yet (just one on the plant and it IS water day). Another seems to have some burn damage I didn't notice before, its odd its like there are a couple brown spots and it seems darker green towards the tips that are burnt. Mind you only the bottom two leaves look like this, so again no panicking. A third had a couple holes in the leafs. Didn't look like a bug chewed them and it was one leaf. Just keeping my eyes PEELED.









Hope you enjoyed. Also Taking requests on which ladies to feature next time. You can just tell me which pot in correlation to which picture, or 1-10 (#3 is dead).

So I discovered the source of my holes. Saddly this cost me half of a ring finger leaf; but as a double edge sword I don't think it will be a problem anymore :lol:. Turns out my cat (pictured left) stole away into my garden when I had my back turned and decided to first play with (minor tearing) than attempt to eat a plant, she didn't go at it very long as most of it looks like it got spat up. And she only got half of one of the bigger leaflets.

Trying not to stress about last updates irksomness continue to get to me... Not doing well at it however. At least I can continue to look forward to my garden.

Theyre coming along nicely though.

Day 25

So yeah, plants are chugging right along. Despite the piss poor week for me and my plants. However since this is the growery and not the bitchery I'll keep it strictly limited to why there week sucked (mostly the weekend too.)





So for starters the cat nomed on on bit of my leaf. And actually @Magic, a friend gave me some catnip (he doesn't know about any of this the timing was just perfect and he just had some extra) before I could read your post. Sadly she doesn't seem to akin to it. After another day from that I gave them some fish fertilizer. Fast forward another day and tragedy struck. A light, the one on the back wall, fell into the forest floor on friday evening!


(cat chewed)


(healthy roots to balance the good and bad)

Thankfully it seemed to cause little damage to the pot it landed in; it mealy ruffled the leaves and dried them out a bit. The plants next to it however suffered a worse fate. One of them suffered some burning on one fan leaflet, the effected area was removed with a sterile blade. Also the top new growth (terminal bud) of another was effected pretty badly; on that one alone I decide now was as good a time as any to top. The light having fell seemed to have dried them out a little faster as they started looking kind of wiltty on saturday. I've since given them water which seems to be to everyone appreciation.



Also the plant pictured middle right was constantly looking kind of wilted on one side and perfect on the other. My only guess is that its directly under the HPS so its starting to wilt a little quicker. I've raised the HPS as well as the back wall and box daylight CFL's, as the plants were starting to grow around them a little too much.. All of the afore mentioned were raised by about 2 inches. Which means only the 2 hanging CFL's remain in place. I hope to hang that new double set on the right hand side.




(these two are of the one I said would look wilty on one side, I've long held it as one of the unhealthier (naturally) plants, though not the shortest/smallest)

I hope to have everything set up and have them switched over to a 12/12  by the end of next week. All I'm missing is some B+W poly/mylar/another tarp, a screen, some plant food, and ideally pot holders for each pot. Next friday is payday so hopefully shortly after than I'll be able to get the necassary items. Also the guy who gave me the lights is going to order another ballast on payday.









(I took this picture horizontally and verticlly, couldn't make up my mind which to use so I flipped a coin).

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Sorry if there are a lot. I'm a total shtuterbug and this is actually helping respark my intrest in it a little (I lost over 5k images and just stopped doing it out of annoyance). Just wait till harvest, I can make even shitty bud look like :homerdrool:, though I hope I don't have to.

Geez they've really taken off.
Some of them are looking a little worse for ware though. That's why my pets don't get free roaming privileges in my grow room.
But then again I'm not growing in my bedroom, so I understand.

Switching to 12/12 so soon, seems like yesterday we just started our threads lol. I'm probably gonna veg my ones for 2 weeks - a month more. I figure that the nute deficiency stunted them for about a week, lol, but they are growing heaps each day now :smile:

What nutes will you be using for bloom? If you want to keep it organic, I've got a feeding schedule using Fish Emulsion and other organic ferts.

Let me know if you want it, and I'll send it to ya.
I'm gonna go all organic, for a nicer smoke for myself.
One plant which I'm growing for a mate, will be using Dutch Master nutes. Will be good experiment to compare similar sized plants and the final result I think.

Cheers

I would love to see your nute schedual if you're willing to share it. I was honestly going to go down to the hydro store and see what they had. I was probably going to shuffle around for a half hour staring at bottles. I have a bit of a mental list already, flornova, and fox farm, but thats just because those are the most common two. I'd love any additional input, And being t total hippie means I <3 organic things.


And honestly only one plant was the cats fault. So unless we want to blame the ghost which seems to fuck with stuff in my apartment once every few months than the light falling was bad luck. The cat was curled up in the kitchen when that happened. Honestly now it seems like she completely ignores the thing; or if I'm working on it she will jump on my back or lay somewhere and watch me. She barely even so much as sniffs the plants.

Well I was also thinking about waiting till the end of next week too. But idealy I'd like them flowering by 11/11/11. But a lot of this depends on how quick I can set shit up.

Thanks a ton,
wire

Here's a really good thread, which lists the feeding schedules for a big bunch of different nutes.
I found it helpful to have, knowing that if I decide to go with a certain brand, I won't have to buy it all at once if I plan according to these schedules.

Organic is halfway down the middle. It's basically just Fish Emulsion and Kelp fertilizer. Be good for  people on a budget too as they're hella cheap.

Anyways, be sure to update on what nutes you use and how it works out for you. If I like what I see I may just copy you, lol

Definitively will do mate. Damn, after reading that I can't wait for friday to go down and explore. And that article adressed my biggest concern about FF+kelp is that you will run low on micro nutrients (iron, calcium, magnesium, etc). Like I said can't wait to explore my options.

In order to grow good weed you need to be part carpenter, electrician, plumber, biologist, geneticist, chemist, and very willing to get dirty.

I've been working with power tools since I was 8, my dad is an electrical engineer who owned a 280 gal fish tank, and I studied biology with a specialty in genetics. Getting dirty comes naturally. I think my parents inadvertently trained me to be a weed grower.

See what you think on my first try.

I dunno if anyone still cares or is reading this. But I like to go back and check things out. That being said, mini update time!



So today was a good day, I dragged my ass out of bed, went down to the hydro store and made two purchases. I bought some B+W panda film, and a PH test kit. I opted to buying a PH kit instead of nutrients because A) I get paid on friday and wouldnt use the nutrients until friday at very least anyway. B) I suspected a PH problem I was right, my run off was like a high 5 (5.5-5.8). I watered the plants again and tested the run off and it was 6.3(ish) the second watering. I guess it was a mini flush? I don't know.



Anyway, I finished hanging some of the BW poly and I'm kinda proud. So thats why I'm here. My door looks pretty spiffy if I do say so myself. Just throw some velcro on there and it should be good as gold!



I cannot wait till harvest. Even if its dirt weed it won't be pressed into the McBrick Nugget.
