    Hey guys.

    I'm new here. I just wanted to show a little project I have going on here. I've just started, I'm still working on my first grow box prototype and have placed two expendable seeds in germination. One of them is already almost out.

    I'm not expecting much of this but if it works well I'll update.

    Seed number one has been started in a jiffy peat pellet. After pH testing one of them I noticed it was way too acidic and I carefully transplanted it in MG Organic potting soil mixed with perlite.

    Seed number two is straight in MG Organic potting soil without perlite.

    Both are watered with straight tap water, pH is around 7.2 and my TDS indicates 140ppm.

    Seed number one is out of the soil but the shell is still attached to the cotyledon.

    I've attached a picture of the inside of the box. I am aware that this is small. I am currently working on a much larger space. This is just a test.

    EDIT: Added pictures of the top notch air flow system. An exhaust fan.

    EDIT 2: Forgot to mention. Please feel free to comment, ask questions or give me some tips if you have some. All criticism is welcome and encouraged. Just don't be an elitist douche or a fox farms rep. I am aware Miracle Gro is not recommended, I don't want to hear it.

    EDIT 3: I've got to get my shit together, hahah. I forgot to mention, the seeds are Jock Horror fem autos from Nirvana.

    Hey man check out the LED section under lighting. Plenty of solid documented grows done with LED units a lot cheaper than solarflares.

    I don't know how I've managed to skip the LED section. All subsequent updates will be made there. Thanks for pointing that out.
