Autoflower newbie

Hey hey hey progress report!! Got the light up and need to get more reflective barrier but here is the start, also seeds have not shown up but everything else is here!!!

Got the light running 18/6 test cycle to see how hot the room gets. AC Infinity makes a bad @$$ set up. A lot of technical stuff for all the features but nothing i cant figure out!!

If you can’t fork out $300 up front all at once on lights, buy goid but smaller ones and add to them 1 by 1 as you get funds.

I literally bought these 3 LED lights plus one more ONE AT A TIME over 12 months. About $90 each used on eBay. 100 W input full spectrum each.

I use Coast of Maine Bar Harbor potting soil and Jack’s A & B w/epsom salt (Jack’s 321). I use MPK after flip and Fish Shit. 3 and 5 gallon cloth bags and 5 gallon buckets on my autos. I grow them in a 2x4x5 tent, Sonofarm SF4000 that measures 395 watts at the outlet, 4" exhaust to outdoors (no filter), 1 9" fan on floor. I do not sprout autos in Solo cups. Right in bag or into Root Riot plugs they go. Immediately into bags when the first root shows in RR plugs. I cannot smoke/use due to job - but fam & friends tell me its all awesome! I’m very impressed with my dry weights and I really like ILGM seeds! 10 + 10 autos is a friggin’ awesome deal. See if anyone close wants to do some trading. Build up your collection! And this hobby IS addictive. Have fun, there are no stupid questions…

You look like you have all the key elements in place. You might need another fan… they make ones that mount directly to your upright poles. That way, they don’t take up floor space.

Anyway, looks like you are getting a great start. If you don’t mind, I’d like to pull up a chair and hang around to watch your grow… and more importantly, your journey along the way. Get ready… it’s a trip!!!

Stay for coffee and cakes buddy. I do have more little fans like that one but plan on getting a clip on that will blow down on top of the light. I did do a 2 day test run of the light and had the temp gauge above it and it never got above 80F but its only at 50% so i bet it will get hotter once the light gets turned up and plants start growing.

I turned my light up to %100 once and the closet got very warm and the top of the light got over 100 degrees, I never turned it up to %100 again and leave it at %75ish and just lower or raise to meet DLI needs.
