5x5x7 1000w Dual Arc tent grow
    #592028 - 10/13/11 04:51 PM (5 years, 7 months ago)

Just started some AK47 femmed seeds to use as mothers. As you can see the moms are in pots using a 50/50 peatmoss and perlite soilless mix.
I'm using the following equipment:

5x5x7 Secret Jardin tent
1000W Dual Arc bulb/ballast (400mh and 600hps in one bulb)
CoolStar plus air cooled reflector
6' Canfan & Carbon filter
18 site Hydro table from BC northerlights(not shown)http://www.bcnorthernlights.com/grow-kits/hydro18-table

3 part micro/grow/bloom from Advanced nutes, BudCandy and bigbud for flowering.

I vent out my window aswell as draw cool air in through 6' ducting. My temps where still up there, 29c, so i added a coolmist humidifier to the tent and it brought it down to 27c which is just right.

I won't update this thread for another 4-5 weeks, until i clone from the moms, so till then Happy growing!

lol wish i didn't have too either! Changed from micro/grow/bloom to sensi bloom A+B as base nutes for flowering, ends up being slightly cheaper than the 3 part, still from advanced nutes. Also i bought a miystic cloner from stealth hydroponics....after getting the thing i kick myself for not just making one lol, though it was only $68 on sale, but all it is is a 5 gallon tub with a misting unit in the bottom, and ofcourse 18 2inch holes in the lid for 2' pucks, no sprayers just a misting bubbler in the res, if it works well i know i can make one the same for about $25... check these pics...
gotta be the cheapest way to make a cloner i've ever seen lol

Thanks, i really dig the dual arc bulb, when i grew in a normal room i always had a 400W MH going with a 1000W HPS for flowering, but when i switched to a tent i can only use 1 bulb due to heat build up, so the dual arc was perfect... I'm looking forward to this AK47, never grown it b4, i read it will flower fully in as little as 6 weeks.

Did you have to get a special ballast for the dual-arc bulbs, or will a regular ballast fire one up just fine? I'm curious to know how good those are...

The ballast needs to be a regular 1000w HPS, i use a switchable magnetic ballast with it, in HPS mode.

Ah, okay. I was hoping a MH ballast would work, but I guess not. :frown: bummer, cause those are WAY cheaper. Lol

theres only about a $20 differance in price where i buy my stuff between a HPS and MH 1000w ballast....$179 for hps and $159 for mh... Still the dual arc gets rid of the need for a MH ballast and bulb for vedging... plus if your like me and prefer to have the entire light spectrum during flower then its a good deal in the long run, only thing is the only place i can get the dual arc bulb from near me runs about $100...still i think its worth it...

Yea, I feel ya. I can actually get a brand new switchable 1k ballast for $125, but I can usually find used MH ballasts for about $50-75... I'll probably end up just getting switchables, since they're more versatile in the long run...

Besides, I think i'd WAY rather go with straight MH for vegging rather than dual spectrum...

You right about that, its always better to have pure MH to vedge, i have a 400w digital ballast that will be running a mh and going into my clone/mom tent when i get it. but right now i only have my main tent so the dual arc will do fine to vedge the moms till i get my second tent up and running..i was planning to have both tents for this grow, but my financial situation didn't permit me to buy the second small tent yet...maybe next month :smile:

I really like that Dual arc bulb also!
I wish I had gotten a MH for veging, but I tried to do my grow within a budget. A budget I have already gone way over lols

I'm starting a new job next week which pays better, so maybe I'll be able to afford one on my next grow.

Looking forward to seeing your results!

Next time u can afford it u should sell your current ballast and buy a Digital 400w ballast, they run both types of bulbs, but they are a bit more costly but its worth it in a single light grow room. 

Ya its never as cheap as you think it will be...but tis worth it in the end when you consider how much $$ u save when u don't have to buy your smoke. I don't even smoke that much anymore, i think i get more enjoyment from growing the plants and watching them mature. lol I just germinated 3 Lowryder2 auto flowering seeds to throw into my tent since my hydro table only takes up 1/2 the space, nvr grown any auto flowering seeds b4, i know the plants stay tiny but should be interesting....

    #593871 - 10/24/11 12:03 PM (5 years, 7 months ago)

I seem to have run into a small problem, two of my plants are drooping for no apparent reason, yesterday they looked fine, their not thirsty as i watered them with plain water at 6.5 PH. Yet this morning 2 of them do not look happy at all :frown: Anyone know if cold air could cause this? the ambient temp i n my tent is 24-28c but last night the temp outside dropped to -4c so the air intake was cold, but the tents temp nvr dropped below 24c. I was thinking since the cold air comes in from the bottom of the tent could it have just chilled these 2 plants closest to the intake? as the third plant seems to be ok at this point... anyways check the pics and let me know your thoughts.

thanks
Hemp


-=EDIT=-
Well after 6 hrs of the light being off the dang plants are fine again, lol weird, think i might have over watered them, luckily it was just PH balanced water with no nutes, so i guess they just needed some sleep to recover lol Sooo all is good in the world again....atleast my lil corner

Woot, congratulations dude!

Too bad no picture updates for awhile (I'm guessing). I'm watching though :popcorn:


--------------------
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.

Looking good HempMaster :thumbup:
I was just wondering what substrate you are using in your pots?
I figure next time I might try what you are using, before I try and do a full hydro setup.
----EDIT----
Just read your first post again.
50/50 Perlite & Peat Moss
Is it easier to look after instead of soil?

i think it is, but in all fairness i never have tried regular soil. lol but i never have to transplant, or mix soil with solid nutes or anything. you should try a small deep water culture setup next time, their pretty cheap for a 4 or 6 plant system... check this link out and you'll see how cheap they can be...DWC
