Primary Light Source:
For seedlings/clones : 2x 32W CFL Daylight (? The blue spectrum)
For vegetative : 400W MH on a 400W HPS Ballast (minimal loss of bulb life, but I've noticed some extra heat also leaks. blue bulbs shouldn't run this hot)

I think soil? Or soil-less?
30*% Perlite
30*% Peat moss
40*% Composted Cow Turds

July 4th:
Decided I'd update this topic with a new post, cause it's not gettin' much support.
No worries, I do this for myself and no one else. Anyone whose interested can tag along for the ride.

I mislabelled Critical Plus and Afghan Kush (afghan had darker sets of true leaves as compared to the Critical Plus) and Pineapple Express is fairly distinct being the only Sativa dominant strain (thin, long, bright green leaves).

The Afghan Kush (the REAL one, not the mislabelled one) had a big piece of manure stuck in the root system which I was worried would block off water drainage. I poked around in there with a metal spoon (bad idea) and eventually unlodged it, along with important roots.
The shock got to it and the leaves started to droop. I'm rehabilitating the bastard with clean water everyday. Hopefully it get better by vegatative or else I'll have to chuck it.

ETA to Vegatative Growth: One week.
Will take pics part-way into Vegging.

Additional Notes:
I fertilized the seedlings not even 1 week after they germinated. 1/3 solution so they should be fine. Just a bad case of impatience.

Checked nute and fresh-water pH: ~6.8
Temperatures have dropped a few degrees. I'd say growing indoors in the winter time is ideal for maximum environmental control. Humidifiers are cheap, AC is not.

Hopefully I'll have a portable AC for the flowering of the first harvest or for the start of the second one.

Keep it green, guys. Peace.

Haha, thanks guys. I'll make sure this journal is filled with nice pics by the end of the month so you don't even have to read the long paragraphs to know how the babies are doing.

Day 15 pics coming up this Sunday.
Looks like the Afghani will have to be tossed into the trash, but I'll wait a few more weeks before making that decision.

I shocked it by disturbing the root system with a metal spoon lol. I thought it would help drainage if I could break apart this big hunk of manure from the bottom. The shock + the heat wasn't good to it. Leaves all sagging and browning inwards. Hoping for the best with the other two. (ultimate sad face)

Here's the Critical Plus (left) and Pineapple Express (right) at day 15:



I heard that Pineapple Express takes nutes, overwatering and overfertilization better than most strains so I went ahead and fed it nutes a bit earlier and a bit more than I did the Critical. As shown in the pictures the PE grows like a beast (good ol' sativa), and what isn't obvious is that it STILL SHOWS SLIGHT NUTE DEFICIENCIES! Good stuff. Unfortunately, since I'm growing multiple strains I'm trying to keep the canopies even but would that really matter with only 2 plants?

Nutrients:
-Plant Prod Drop N Gro' All Purpose 20-20-20
(1/4 to 1/3 for starters, then gradually increasing to 1/2 for initial vegging and full strength for mid-late vegging, increasing as needed)

-Plant Prod Flowering Plants 15-30-15

I slept in this morning and found my plants almost toasted at 100F.
I immediately switched all the lights (blinded by the room) back to 2x 32W CFLs and put them an inch away from the plants, I'm sure they're used to much brighter..

I've realized the major flaws of my rez and here they are:

- Ventilation
- Heat
- Lightproofing

No intake-outtake ventilation results in heat and since I don't have a Secret Jardin tent and am using just mylar and doors I haven't lightproofed my setup for future flowering phases. Oh and

- Odour Control

Yeah.

Will get fixed by end of week.
And probably pick up a carbon off someone on craigslist in a few months.

I peek at the bottom of the jiffy cups I use every now and then to see how the roots are growing. I saw a nice long white root coming out of the bottom of the Pineapple Express this morning and I'll be transplanting it out tomorrow night just before lights out.

I love the Jiffy brand. With the cups you can just take a pair of scissors and cut along the side of the cup. With some proper handling and gloves = minimal shock.

Anyways here's the pics. PE on the right, C+ on left.

(Day 17)


Oh and I found a small patch of brown discoloring appearing on the inner-leaves on new leaf growth for both of the plants. Is that heat/light stress? Nute intake changing because of HID -> CFL?

Fingers crossed.
