Looks good so far man! Can I ask why you chose seedlings, and chose not to fill it to capacity? I hope you nail the veg time this round All in all, 4.5 on only 8 plants for a first attempt is pretty good bro!
1. I would eventually like to house a mother plant for clones, but I am a one man show currently and I am planning on spending a couple months in California this summer (after this grow). I would have no one to watch over my mother, and even if I did, I'd rather leave my house behind knowing that it is "clean".
2. I purchased 20 Nirvana Feminized seeds and attempted to germinate all of them, but only 13 successfully sprouted. To be fair, I accidentally left one seed behind in the bag, so it was really a 13 out of 19 success rate. Next time, I'll purchase 25 seeds. I thought my success rate would be better.
I think I'll get the veg time right this round. Last time I let the plants veg for about 35 days before switching them over. This time, I'm shooting for about 25 days. We'll see when I get to that point. If I veg them slightly too short, that's probably a good thing. That means I'll have it down perfect for my future grows... at least for this strain.
great stuff ancap im after been glued to my computer looking at ur grows.im doing northen lights meself had height issues with one of my plants but i had well more height in my closet than you had in yours.im not sure if your even gona get this message but if you do give us a shout back .plus im glad to see your going for northen lights again.you must have enjoyed the toke of it good man
Right on bro, thanks for checking out my grow. Northern Lights is a good strain. I'll start experimenting with other grows once I get this whole process down. Still learning...

I'm going to be out in LA. You in that area?

I am currently feeding at levels under week two strength. This strain doesn't seem to need the amount of nutes that other growers are feeding their plants. In fact, I started to get nute burn on my last grow when my ppm was at 580 on day 18 from seed. I was told from someone else (a reputable source) that I should be at 800ppm by that point. It wasn't until I scaled back my ppm levels by about 40% that things leveled out. I'm glad I didn't dose more.
Here's where I'm at now...
18 hours light with two 400 Watt MH, a 125 Watt daylight CFL, and my T-5's.
430 ppm (number includes 130 ppm from my tap water). My res probably has about 10-11 gallons instead of 9.
One thing I've noticed that was interesting was this strain's tolerance of high heat levels. I intentionally allowed the heat to rise in the box to measure the tolerance level and found that they were doing consistently well in 86-87 degree temps. It wasn't until I sustained 89 degrees that I noticed a little burning on one leaf. I've since turned my AC unit on and the box temp is around 79 now. This info is good to know so that I can feel comfortable leaving the AC off in the morning until about noon (as long as the weather is nice). Saves a little $$$.
