So things took a little longer than expected to get going, but I'm finally underway! Still need to sort out the exhaust fan and ducting, but otherwise the grow box is basically up and running. Here's a photo of the Dinafem Super Silver seedling:
She's stretched a bit because I left her under a ziploc bag too long to keep in moisture, but now I have her kissing 148w of CFLs (2x42w and 2x32w), so hopefully there won't be much more of that. She's in some soil from my yard, which is teeming with earthworms, so the topsoil is largely castings. I am picking up a bag of proper potting soil in the next couple days and will be transplanting her within the week. Hopefully the soil doesn't retain too much water and rot the roots between now and then.
I'll start updating more often now that things are moving along.
