Hey y’all, here goes my effort at growin’ stuff & journaling.
MY SETUP: 2 ’ x 3’ x 6’ cabinet.
2 x charcoal filters w/4" fans = 104 CFM ‘S TOTAL
1 Kind LED XL 450 (270 W)
2 x T5 2’ Lights
1 H2O pump 185 GPH
1 Air pump
4 x 4" air stones
Blue Lab Monitor EC, TDS, PH, PPM, H2O temp,
10 Granddaddy Purple Autos (regular)
2 Blackberry Kush Autos
hydronton clay rockwool
DWC 15 Gallon bin
1- 6" fan @ plant level (another ready for canopy)
NUTES: Botanicare HYDROGUARD 30 ml
OTHERS TO BE ADDED LATER:
Lotus BLOOM, BOOST GROW @ 1/2 RECOMMENDED STRENGTH
On Sunday 25 oct 2020 @ 0730 hours I dropped 10 GDP AUTOS & 2 BLACKBERRY KUSH AUTOS onto 3 cotton pads, 5 on each pad. On Tuesday, 27 oct 2020 @ 0700 9 of the GDP’s & both of the KUSH ladies sprouted.
I had trouble getting the long roots into the rockwool, and I ended up having to leave a few of them hanging out of the wool.
They looked sickly, and frankly I wrote off the whole lot because the initial humidity and temp were way off. But I set them up in the cabinet turned on lights.
I closed the door and hoped for the best. Checking a few hours later all of the KUSH SISTERS & 9 of the GDP were sitting up and paying attention to the lights and environs. So I paid attention.
I can’t seem to get close enough for a good shot, but here @ 2021 hours they seem to be pretty content. I workin’ real hard on photos. I have limited mobility and find it hard to get down to take a photo of the ladies.
I don’t have good ventilation yet, (fans on the way) but everything else is good to go.
Wish me luck. Photos soon!!! t6
