    Im growing some good mids. I put my germinated seeds in the potting mix about 2 days ago and they havn't popped up yet. But I have everything all set up for them to veg.

    Medium:
    I bought some Miracle-Gro Potting Mix with time released fertilizer for 3 months.

    Lights:
    I have 4 26W 6500K CFLs above the 2 plants and another 26W 6500K CFL on the side leaning in. I am going to get a clamp lamp with a reflector soon. Probably a 42W 6500K CFL too.

    Ventilation:
    I have a big box fan blowing on the plants into the box at all times. Air pushed out from the top so I think it works pretty well. My hand doesnt get hot either.

    Fertilizer:
    I bought Miracle-Gro All Purpose Fertilizer [15-30-15]
    I know all of you are going to freak out about Miracle-Gro, but don't. I am going to use it.

    I water the seeds with some mist once a day a little bit. When they sprout I will give them a spoon full or two. I wont start on nutes for a while because the mix already has some.

    When the plants get bigger I plant on taking them out of the box and just on the floor where they are right now. I can put some foil around them and hang the lights from above and they will have more room to grow.

    As of smell, I havnt thought that far yet. I have used dryer sheets in the past and they have worked, also keep my window open or cracked.

    I also have marijuana Buds for Less: Grow 8 Oz. of Bud for Less Than $100, and marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible to help me out on the way.


    So how do thing the setup is?

    Day 1

    One of my seeds sporouted today. I had to re germinate some more seeds because one of my seeds never came up so I planted that yesterday.

    I water them about a spoonfull or two.

    Day 2

    The little girl (hopefully) on the right grew a tiny bit and the one on the left still hasnt sprouted. Im worried that the one on the right is gonna be to much bigger than the left.
    I watered them a little bit today too. My lights are on 24/0 now too.

    So my seeds germinated and I just put them in the mix. Now in a few days I will hopefully have a few new little tiny seedlings. :)
