I use SM-90, it's sold in CA as a wetting agent, but works well on riding gnats.

I run it the the tank, and use as a maintenance spray when necessary.

Get a omri rated spray with spinosad in it. That will kill the gnats. Your need to ph your water with AN. I'm in to organics my self. I like to make a nice amended soil and let that compost/cook for a few months. Look up super soils, I like subcools but there's lots of ways to make soil. With a good organic soil I don't ph anything. Get to know your root zone, mycos and bacteria are important !

You closest needs good air flow, all the time, constantly or supplement with c02.

What kind of lights are you using? Do you have pictures you can post ? What soil is in your pots ? Have you grown anything before ? What's your goal for this grow ? Is it legal or a stealthy hidden grow ?

I would ph the water when you need to use it. You want a ph of 6.2 to 6.4 every time you water unless your soul has ph buffers in it. Like dolomite lime it's a ph buffer.

Work on air flow to keep temps down. Constant fresh air will keep a steady temperature and supply c02 at the same time.

Remember your growing from seed and some will be males. You goal is doable but a good rule of thumb is a half gram per watt of hid lighting. You can get more but you need a real grow room with climate control, c02 system, vented hoods. I have about 3000$ worth of grow equipment and get a gram a watt or close.

Do you have a ph pen ? If not get one.

Ocean forest mixes with happy frog to make a balanced store bought soil.

Ok that's also what I left out i mixed dolamyte lime with the soil NEXT time i buy soil what kind of happy frog should I mix with i watered this morning lightly before work but i might quit my job so i can watch the plants throughout the grow... i see thats the rule for hid but since ill be using a 150w hps how much do you think I will yield??? I have a ph tester and i have fem seeds i can't wait to post pictures in about two hours when I get off work ima show you my grow room what is a C02 AND eventually ill b buying my carbon filter for the smell just don't know what kind is better for me right now but after y'all see my grow closet we can move further

Subbed.
AN is easy, just follow the instructions and google. Not sure if AN has their formula set to 1/4 strength but most bottles are way too strong out the gate and need to be toned down so the plant can get acclimated to the nutrients and not get burned.

Unless you're running 1kw+ in a sealed room don't worry about CO2. Plants, MJ too, breathes CO2 like humans breathe oxygen. CO2 is, however, very dangerous to humans in high doses. We inhale oxygen and exhale CO2, so imagine if you were to exhale in a closed room and breathe all of the O2 and be left with CO2. You'd suffocate.

How big is your grow area? That will determine the inline fan and carbon filter size you need. Make sure you get a fan controller. Surprised you're having heat issues with CFLs, crack the closet door open a little. You don't need a completely sealed environment (In fact this is bad because the plants will use all the CO2) unless you're adding CO2.

For the gnats I would use grow stone gnat nix they are cheap and I've heard good things from them. They are made from recycled glass and they are extremely porous so they can be mixed in with soil too.But for the gnats put a 2 inch layer of the glass on top of the soil they basically stop the eggs from hatching and stop any burrowers. Also you should buy some tangle foot and rub it all over any yellow paper the gnats love to get stuck o that stuff. There is also food grade diatomaceous earth and beneficial nematodes. I used beneficial nematodes and I have no gnats. But they are expensive so i would go with tangle foot traps and grow stone gnat nix. All this can be bought off amazon too :). Good luck on your grow. Oh and btw how do I subscribe to a thread? I'm still a newbie.

He means follow his post so you get up dates on new posts or he just wants you to follow him on his profile.

If I'm not making soil I like happy frog mixed with ocean forest for outdoor and roots organic in door. Roots tends to have less bugs and is a stronger soil. It burns seeds s little and is not a good starter.

150 watts 75 grams is half a gram watt. You should be able to get between 75 and 150 grams. I've never used anything less than a 1000 watt and that's how it works with them. The little ones might be different.

When do you plan on using the AN bottles to feed ? The soil should be good for a few weeks before you feed.

Easy turbo it takes about 45 days for a seed to show its sex. I veg under 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness. I have tried both ways and the most notable difference is the 24 hour light makes the plant use more cal/mag. Other than that they seem to grow the same but you save electricity with the dark period.
