Bruce Banner(?) + Bagseed Experiment (First Time Grow)
New to the site and have a couple posts, now that I have everything setup and a good idea of what I am going to do I figured I would start a journal.
Still working out the kinks and getting my feet wet, didnt want to waste quality seeds. Going to veg for a few weeks, get all the kinks ironed out and then switch to a 12/12.
My closet setup.Size: 54"L x 24"W x 66"H
Intake: 12" fan with 8" duct floor level intake
Exhaust: 2 x 4" duct top exhaust
Lighting: Currently Under Hydrafarms 4' 4 Bulb T5 (6400k) Will definately flower under 250W HPS, debating on whether or not to get a MH/HPS SS2 right now.
seeds: 3 x bag seeds of what was said to be Bruce Banner, unknown how or what is was pollinated with, got a oz and found 3 seeds in one bud, the rest seedless. Regardless it was potent and tasty.
seeds: 5 x mixed bag seeds (should be interesting)
Soil: MG Seed Starting now, MG 3 Month next
Nute: FloraNova Grow
Temp: about 77 - 80
Humidity: ? (waiting for digi therm to get here)
I think my PH is off because they are slow growing, but my digi meter wont be here til the end of the week. Also I am waiting for my digi thermometer to come in, I have a feeling I will need a humidifier as well. Pretty sure the slow growth is from the Ph & dryness. However my soil Ph seems fine....
I will more than likely just let this first batch grow a few weeks and then go to a 12/12, being the strains are really unknown I dont want to mess around too much. I am still trying to work out my nutes & water. Get an idea of temps and such, work out the kinks and get my feet wet.
I have some Wonder Woman from nirvana on the way I will be using for my second grow, and planning on a ScrOG grow
Here are some pics. Not so stealth closet, but stealth enough for what we need.

Yes I know I have too many plants for my setup.. LOL Some will be male, some may even be sacrificed if needed...
At 13 days now, seems that I have worked through my initial newbie watering crazy phase, and waiting to see a slight wilt to know how many days to wait between....
I used purified water on Monday, and they seem to have liked it better than the water with nutes..
If anyone reads and feels like responding, I am just wondering how you add nutes in water, I mean I know how to read the bottle lol, but is it always a mix in the water, or do you switch back to straight water now and then during the cycles?
They have really sprouted since I got the new box set up with better airflow, flushed them with h20, and its much cooler now, stays about 80f under the light, 78 in the rest of the box.
Will be transplanting into the 2nd pots this weekend, 1 gal for the next 2 weeks, then into the 3gal for flowering.
From what I have seen/read here these look to be about right for 2 weeks.
Day 13: First 3 in pic one, and pic 2 is the BB(?) the others are bagseed..
250W MH/HPS switchable. Put the white fan is and have it blowing on the reflector, the intake is blowing on the plants.
10" Fan added to the top for exhaust..
Transplanted into some Fox Farm Ocean Forest, they didnt have the happy frog. Just in soil and purified water now..

Temps sit around 82 when its closed up, but thats above the light with less airflow, its cooler under the light with the 2 fans blowing.

Added a couple pics from this am, they are enjoying the new light

Did some cropping, and pulling them down to try and keep all the tops at one level.... Kind of sloppy, but learning...
Switched to the HPS & 12/12...
Everyone seems happy, just have to weed out the males....
I'm out of the competition. My wife made me kill all of my plants. Yah. I'm not to happy at the moment. A lot of time, money, and love..... wasted.
Sorry... Been hiding out in the 250w thread....

Been dealing with issues, my runoff Ph was kind of low, but think its all figured out at this point, flushed them all over the weekend, got my runoff at 6.6 which is good. Pretty sure the Ph of my nute solution was the culprit.
Sorry for the HPS pics....
Seem to have a decent even canopy:
Been pulling them down and spreading to expose the center.
Pretty sure those are the white pistols I am looking for
Fox Farm Ocean Forest Soil
Store bought distilled water, and doing nute mix-water-nute mix feeding schedule.
Did my last Grow feed today, will do a 50/50 next, then switch to the Bloom.
Ph is 6.6 - 6.8 going in, and about the same coming out in runoff...
Temps are 77 dark, 81 light.
Humidity is 50% give or take a few.
Thanks to all the fine folks here who have helped.. Hoping I am on the right track heading into flowering...

Will be a couple weeks before the next update, going to wait til the good camera is working...
16 days since 12/12, all flowering now....
Other than smoking the finished bud, weeks 3-7 of flower are my favourite part. The way they pack on mass almost daily is so awesome. Do you use a bulking sup? I use the liquid koolbloom from gh and like it alot. Enjoy the show man, I'm subbed and I look forward to following along.
Flush & Good Pics
Just gave them a bath with some Clear Royale, got the Ph RO to 6.7, and gave them some Bloom.
Some traces of burn, but overall looking good
Thats my canopy, light is about 6" give or take..
Three different here, did not pay attention to which is which, hard to tell apart. Same strain so who cares lol. I will sort it out at harvest...
Will be introducing liquid KB at next feeding..
