    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Comments Welcome~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    So the Growlab 80L has finally arrived after a mistake. I also picked up my magnum xxxl reflector and threw the 400w MH in it for now. I would put the 600 in it and throw it over my hydro grow, but this reflector is huge and weighs 34lbs and wouldn't fit. I have 11 clones total, 4 LA Woman 7 Pineapple Express. The plan is to run 3 PE/ 3 LA in my 600w hydro setup and then run an additional 4 PE in the tent under the 400w switchable. Hoping to pull 12 oz off the hydro setup and 8 oz off the soil in the tent. I will be staggering the harvest to stay at my legal limit of 5 oz. O I am now a cg for 2 patients allowing me 24 plants legally. If you want to see my hydro setup check out my round 2 & round 3 journals.

    Have Central AC coming out of that vent right into the tent...going to make a little cardboard 'collector' for maximum cooling! Yes that's my dishwasher in the lower left :lol:

    Clones should be rooted in 1 week. I got the FFOF into the 5 gal smart pots and put Happy Frog in 16 ounce solo cups to start. Both have been pre-innouculated with double the recommended dose of Great White Premium Mycorrhizae. Hopefully they will start breeding in the soil so when I introduce the plants they are ready to thrive. I will be picking up some grandmas blackstrap molasses to feed them, until the roots get established and take over that job. 1-2 tsp of the molasses will be used every other watering on the plain water days throughout the grow.

    I also ordered a 6x24 Phresh Filter (550 CFM) & a Vortex 6" Fan (450 CFM) which should arrive by the end of next week when the clones root. O, check out the new eco-plus thermometer, ordered one for the tent as it is in the kitchen :lol:. EcoPlus Digital Thermometer/Hygrometer w/Remote Sensor

    Things are about to go down. Can I get a hell yeah?!?!?

    Oh yea? it's for sale..

    Alright, the clones were rooted so they got the transplant today. Solo cups are the 4 PE going into the soil in the tent. The 2 galon smart pots have 3x pe and 3x la in them. Rooted even quicker this round, think they rooted in 10 days. I infused the root riot cubes with some great white mycorrhizae so maybe that helped? Not sure. Anyhow they are looking a touch droopy right now, but they should pick up in the next couple days here. It's really humid (50%) in my space right now so they should be fine with that, but I'll hit them with some superthrive foliar in a bit.


    Annnnd I couldn't wait to try the Afgan Kush by World of Seeds... so I'm going to run one in the tent with the 4 PE. She'll go in a 3gal instead of a 5 though, because it's what I got around.

    Finally picked up the duct, got the fan and everything wired up. I'm going to grab a speed controller for it, but besides that the setup is pretty much ready to rock. O I got my pedestal fan too, but idk if it will fit in the tent anymore :lol: This xxxl 6" hood is huge, I can't imagine what the 8" ones are like. Let me know what u think of the ducting setup. The clones are doing well, all perking back up from the transplant. They will go under the MH in the tent tomorrow probably.


    Check out my base station for my remote temp sensor. Nice to sit back and monitor it in the other room from here. It's also expandable up to 3 sensors, which is pretty bad ass also. O and that's my new bowl also.

    Sick ass looking setup man, seriously.. that should be like in a magazine for urban growers..

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    Thx for the kinda words, the whole tent setup ran about $1300 if you count everything, but I had the ballast & bulb so it saved me some.

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    9 out of the 10 clones have been moved into the tent. I have one LA that is still drooping some on me so I'll wait to hit her with the MH. 3 weeks of veg and then it's flower time. Gotta move it all after this harvest, but the new setup will be bigger and better. Harvest in 11 weeks.

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    haha for sure bro, I hated the thought of the 400 just sitting in the closet. My third round is about half way done flowering so I took clones for that as well as this tent. There will be 4 PE in 5 gal pots w/ ocean forest and 1 Afgan kush in a 3 gal w/ ocean forest in the tent. I won't fert them until I switch to flowering in three weeks. I also have 3 LA woman clones and 3 PE that are in the 2 gal smartpots with hydroton for the hydrosetup. These will also be vegged for 3 weeks then flowered for 8. I only have a 4 day cushion between planned last harvest and moveout, hope it all goes to plan. lol. I will also be taking clones 1 month before I move. That will minimize my downtime do to the move, I should only lose 2 weeks or so because of it, not too bad at all. Gonna have to redo my mothers though, they are like 5 ft tall and all scragly... Maybe I'll redo them before the move.... hmm.. Thanks for the interest man, still waitin to peep your new setup bro.

    It has the shape of a tick. I don't see any legs though, and ticks have eight of them.
