Heres my arsenal of goodies
Ill let the plants tell me what they need, and when to give it to them.
Some of the stuff I use in hydro, the others I use in the soil (MG).
Wassup everybody. Im back.
after a long break from the site I gotta show U guys what I been working on!
aint she purrty?
its no different than one of those $1500-$2500 supergrow cabinets, except it only cost me about $200 total to make.
the fans I had laying around, I had to re-wire my ballast to make it remote, it sits on top of the grow box.
temps usually stays in the mid 80's.
Im not doing anything for odor control at the moment.
Just got my Nirvana Bubbilicious seeds in today. they took exactly 12 days to get here (Ohio, Usa) from amsterdam or wherever they came from. But I was impatient and went ahead and germinated a few bagseeds to grow till they got here. But for now Ill keep these babies rollin, and when theyre about to finish up ill germ a few bubbilicious, pollinate a female and get a shit load of seeds to start up a SoG using bubbilicious.
of the bagseed:
I threw 10 beans in a towel, 8 of them sprouted.
When dealing with bagseeds ur gonna get mutant plants and hermies. its best to get rid of them at the earliest signs of weaker genetics.
3 of my babies were pulled bcuz of this.
^^the yellowing and browning was due to the fact that I didnt pre-soak my rockwool cubes prior to planting. the debris left in there fucked with the pH and caused shock all across the board for my hydro plants. the strong ones pulled thru and made a quick recovery and stayed around to see another moon!
I currently have 5 seedlings growing under the 400W HPS. Im very pleased at the results.
I have 3 of them in Hydro.
Theyre just growin in the rockwool cubes and some hydroton. I hand feed them when the rockwool cubes start to lose weight. (i pick them up to see how heavy they are. if they are heavy; then they can go another day without watering. if theyre light; they need water)
no pumps, no meters, just the pH tester and my arsenal of nukes, I mean nutes
and currently I have 2 started in soil.
I start them off in Jiffy cubes (the expandable ones that soak water) and as soon as they pop up and drop their shell they go under the 400W HPS. in about 2 or 3 days the roots were sticking outta the jiffy cubes, so thats how I knew they were mature enough to get planted into the Miracle gro. (seedlings must be a certain age before U plant them into any miracle gro brand. if planted too soon the "time released" nutes will kick in too soon and give Ur plants a burn.) I water my seedlings in soil every 4 days.
Im doing 12/12 from seed to finish. any questions on this method should first be directed to google. Stop in, pull up a chair and watch the fireworks. ((not literally ))
edit: forgot to mention the seedlings are only 2 weeks 4 days old. The HPS is supposed to encourage faster growth...well see.
What kind of yield do you think you will get with 12/12 from seed? The setup looks nice.
what about if you need to lower the light?
I put my seedlings into straight mircle grow soil no problems. I have lots of pictures
but ill probably get about an 1-2oz per plant bcuz i dont have much space.
heres a link on 12/12 from seed from another site. it has tons of info on it. International Cannagraphic Magazine Forums - 12/12 From Seed: A Different Way To Grow
