Welcome to my 3rd journal on this forum! I’m starting this journal 2 weeks or so before the actual grow begins so I have a place to discuss a few details I haven’t yet finalized, and because I’m so freaking excited to get this next grow going.
I plan on getting everything up and running on September 4, 2018.
Strains: Flash Seeds’ Jamaican Berry Super Auto, Big Buddha’s Blue Cheese, Critcal Mass Collective’s Sour Melon, Fastbuds’ Blue Dream, Sweet Seeds’ Bloody Skunk, Seedsman’s Sweet Tooth, and Top Shelf Elite’s Pineapple Crack
Grow Area: 2 tents, each 2.5x5x7, inside my house
Tent A–900-1200w Galaxyhydro blurples (actual draw 390-520w)
Tent B–hlg 320xl v2 quantum board kit
Nutrition: Earth Juice 5 Originals (Grow, Bloom, Catalyst, Meta K, Microblast, and powdered pH adjusters, if needed); Advanced Nutrients’ Root Trio (Voodoo, Piranha, and Tarantula); Advanced Nutrients’ Nirvana; and NFTG’s Persephone’s Palate. I will be bubbling the Earth Juice line for approximately 30 hours, before use. Florakleen is in my cupboard, too, but I doubt I’ll need it during this grow
Pots & Medium: 5 gallon fabric pots & promix (though, it’s proving hard to find & expensive in my area, so I might go with sunshine mix#4…thoughts on this are appreciated)
Training/grow method: I plan on topping/fimming the jamaican berry super auto & scrogging it in a 28"x22" screen; I plan on scrogging the sour melon & blue dream without doing any hst in 28"x22" screens; all others will be left to grow, with pruning & trimming done as needed
Ventilation: the 2 tents will be connected, sharing the same ventilation system; tent b will be used as a passive intake tent, while tent a will house the 390cfm adjustable fan & carbon filter; each tent will also be equipped with a clip fan & an oscillating fan
Germination method: I will drop seeds in an h2o/h2o2 bath for 12 hours or so, then put them in rapid rooters inside a heated, domed germination station; tent b will be the nursery tent, using the qb light
I have to still put up my new tent, get my qb light in the mail (should arrive in 3 days), and pick-up a potting mix such as Promix or Sunshine Mix#4. Otherwise, I’m ready to go!
If you have any thoughts on the 2 potting mixes, please lay them on me. I will be picking up 2 bales of whichever one you all talk me into in 2 weeks.
Here’s to a great Autumn Harvest!
