The little easy riders are looking good, I think that the 12/12 cycle is making them take so long. I would put them in my new veg room on 18/6 but I think that it may shock them or something, not worth the risk as they are producing.

I have had these sitting around for a couple years so, I thought "what the hell"..

Just beginning week 2 of Veg growth. Things are looking good and there is rapid growth now in all 3 of the plants. My lights are 18" above the canopy and my temps inside the tent are staying at 79F.

At less than 150 square feet, the room was constructed in a standard two car garage, consuming roughly 1/4 of the total space.

It's power requirements are provided for by dedicated circuits, wired and trimmed to code, and fully insulated and dry-walled...inside and out.
The first crop has been cloned directly from our White Rhino mother plant (presently in soil). Once rooted
