1st grow shot! 250w hps closet hempy scrog
Ok I learned something today. This apparently is where I wanted to start my grow journal. Now that i got that solved, here is a bit of my layout. 3x2x3 grow area, with 4in active air inline fan and all ducting to exhaust in a second soundproofed compartment of the grow box. This is a stealth grow as I don't want my kids stumbling upon it. I'm a legal patient, blah , blah, so no worries about leo. Anyway I'm using a lumatek 250w dimmable ballast with small umbrella style open hood. 2 active air carbon scrubbers provide clean air exchange, and I have a couple Menards mini fans, one blowing between the canopy and the light and one blowing through the canopy. Using GH flora series with Liquid Koolbloom and Floralnectar. Choose the hempy method because of the sticky on this site, and the ease of use. Not been disappointed so far. Plants are blackjack and strawberry doubledutch both from clone. The strawberry clone was much larger at the start and I tried to chop her down to size but she just grew into a beastly bush while the blackjack has stayed smaller and much tamer, almost looks like a bonzai tree. Using clones is always a guessing game with what you really have so I'm not positive if this is a real blackjack, and I've never fuckin heard of strawberry doubledutch, but both are chronic so I guess it doesn't really matter to me, I just wish more people were consistent with there clones. Growing small scale here just cuz I wanted to grow some. Not worried about how much I'll get just want to learn from this process and improve form here. Already figure to grow 2 the same strain with slightly larger screens and more veg time. Anyway heres some pics of my setup along with some early plant pics mixed with some pics of em 11 days into flower.
