Critical HOG Scrog Micro DIY DWC Bubble Bucket, First time. Advice welcome!
I started a journal in another forum and it is getting way less responses than I would like. So I decided to try posting it to this site =).
This is my first grow so all advice/help would be appreciated. I am using a hollowed out dresser as my "room" and CFL's for lighting. Currently I have 2 24w 2700k, 2 24w 5500k and a 105w 6500k (Comically large)light in a custom fixture. I put this all together for pretty cheap and seems to be working well right now, eventually this will house my clones when I get to that point. Planning on purchasing a tent after this grow if I feel this is a hobby I would like to keep.
So currently the grow is on day 19 and the plant looks good. I am feeding it with GH flora series and following their schedule. Currently water is sitting at 890ppm and 5.9ph. Roots looking good. I plan on doing LST/SCROG as the plant grows. Looks like I should start with in the next week or so right? Will be adding a metal grate on the bottom to tie the plant down since the top of my tote has little room to do that. I think she is looking a bit short though she is a pure indica so I guess that is to be expected. Area around the plant is sitting around the upper 70's with the water being 64 degrees.
Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by!
Will update every other day with pictures!
Our setups are pretty similar besided lighting, i will be subbing yours. you can check out mine if you need any time references i am on my first grow too , i topped mine after the 4th node to make it easier to lst really. looking really healthy though dig the dresser setup very much dig you make it all yourself?, i say veg for 25 days with scrog screen will be pretty epic. Mine is g13 pineapple its showing a really indica dominant phenotype aswell
I would recommend more lighting if its possible, its gonna be great as is but you could potentially double your harvest
more lights? looks like a sick setup indeed but i bet it gets hot up in there, more lights might overkill it.
I gutted the dresser and created the little grow room in there. Also have the drawer fronts nailed/glued in with silicone around the joints to make it some what air tight.
I really don't know if I want to top it. I think with the lst and scrog I should be able to keep it down in height and keep the plant roughly at 12 inches tall inside there. You think that is too tall for this area? Should I keep the screen about 7/8 inches? I think the training part has me the most confused since its my first time growing and first time with this strain. I tried finding other journals with this strain but no luck, though the seed bank says its a 8-14 week plant with a 55 day flowering time. Really wondering how much this will fill up if I were to flip it in the next week or so to 12/12.
I agree that more lights would be benificial to the over all yield but as Trailing said, it already gets pretty warm in there. I do have a excuast fan on the top with a 200cfm (though does not seem to be running at full speed) fan pulling air. Could get it cooler if I drilled some holes into one of the doors for more flow. If this grow goes well I will be getting a jardin dark room II d90 and a 400w light setup.
Thanks for the input, more things that get brought up help me consider things before they happen. Reading tuts/journals only help so much.

I have this strain growing in coco, I'm hoping it isn't too tall of a plant
Ya it doesn't look like its stretching at all, keeping pretty stubby at the moment.
Just bit the bullet and bought a tent (Jardin Dark Room Pro II DR90) , probably will be moving it over to that tent and flowering in there.
Looking to pick up a 600w dimmable light setup. Think heat should not be too much of a issue as I can hook it up to air ducts and it will reside in a basement. See lots of new little growth showing at nodes.
Yes! get the 600 it'll be worth it, don't worry too much about the temps if worse comes to worse you can run it at 75% or 50% people say it runs out the bulbs faster but the 600's and 400's bulbs about same price now pretty cheap.
