[QUOTE=hYdroActive;6019788]Hello good people of RollItUp!
As you probably can tell this is my first grow journal. Just a couple months back I was approved to be a medical grower with three patients. So Stoked. This journal is going to document my journey through the learning process of medical marijuana cultivation. Any tips, tricks, and advice you can provide are welcome and greatly appreciated. Enough about me, on to the exciting stuff!
Three Eye Hortilux 1000w hps (one lamp/ hood in each room) in 8” vented Magnum XXXLs and one Digilux 600w MH in an 8” vented Blockbuster hood; all vented by a 8” Vortex fan. Also I have an 8 bulb t5 fixture for clones.
Two 12” MaxFan (one for intake and one for exhaust), which exchange the room in the space about once per minute, and one 8” Vortex for the lights. I know I'm repeating myself but I figure the fans section should list all the fans. So yeah... next;
The entire space is 11' Wide X 20' Long. As you can see in the picture I have built 4 rooms that are just about 5'x5'. The rest of the space is a control room where the temperature is controlled by a thermostat which turns the fan on if it gets too warm and a timer that turns them on periodically?
QUESTION: Do you need to have your fans run all the time or can I have it just exchange the air by turning the fans on every ___ amount of time?
The first room with the MH bulb and t5 lamp is for the mothers (which will be in FoxFarm Ocean Forest soil)and the clones. I am planning on trying out the bonsai mother technique and I am building a clone machine. The other three rooms with one 1000w hps are going to make up a perpetual grow. The plants will live their whole life, from rooted clone to a fully mature beauty in one room. I am planning on building 3 (one for each room) separate ebb and flow bucket systems. Then I'm going to put a screen that is 4'x5' in the room and Scrog the plants.
FloraNova Grow, FloraNova Bloom, LiquidKoolBloom, FloraBlend, Floralicious Plus
FoxFarm GrowBig and FoxFarm Big Bloom
So far I have four plants I am going to use as mothers;
[B]Super Silver Haze
Oregon Pinot Noir
[B]Purple Dog Shit[/B][ATTACH=CONFIG]1707946[/ATTACH], and [B]Black Jack[/B][ATTACH=CONFIG]1707955[/ATTACH].
I also have 4 seedlings that I planted just a couple days ago that I purchased from a seed bank (and received them in 10days :)
As I'm sure you have figured out I am a little ahead of myself with the plants. I has given the clones from a friend and he needed me to take them so unfortunately I am going to be putting together the rest of the rooms while the plants are vegging into healthy mothers.
If you have any questions about the setup lemme know other than that kick back and enjoy the show. :)
