Top of the morning to you
It's been a couple of days. But we are just putting the last little details, mostly specs., together.
I finally got the order form printed out, so the money order is on it's way to The Attitude as of Monday.
In the mean time that little girl we found hiding on us.
She germinated, in only 48 hours! (good sign)
& So we now have her in a peat pellet and under the lights. Along with our bonsai tree seedlings lol. The one on the right is the marijuana seedling lol.
Let me explain some of the changes we've made to our setup.
Expanding - We have expanded, and now are using the entire desk. We seperated it into two though, one taller slimmer box for the mother plants and budding, and one short long box for clones and the initial start of it all. We have yet to build our PC grow box, but we don't need it right away.
Mylar - Makes a huge difference from the thick white plastic that we did have. The temperature is up due to the MASSIVE amount of reflection compared to the plastic. Go mylar! lol
Reinforcement of the box and NEW doors - We used a ton of screws and 2x2's to sturdy up the desk our grow box is made of. && New doors keep unwanted pests out. At the moment they're held on by four screws, but that will soon be replaced by locks.
Lights - We were using flourescents with the last ones, for lack of better materials. But we have decided to go with a CFL/HPS mix this time. One HPS with 2 or 3 CFL's (150w-200w) in each box.
Fans - We are in the process of installing 2 fans in the mother plants box, one for exhaust and one for circulating and bringing in new air. As well as 2-4 fans in the smaller box. We are waiting to se how the temperature is going to be with all the lights until we get an exact number of fans installed.
That's all for now folks
