I started my grow off in a little closet space about 2x4(i don’t have any pictures I wish I did) but I did it the cheapest way possible, aluminum foil on the walls, bowl reflectors, cheap cfl from Lowe’s, a little 6 in 2 speed fan you see where I’m going… I tried to upgrade lights, fans, ventilation etc, then it seemed like nothing was going to change so I had to do better… I did it, and went online and got everything I needed to make an elaborate system.
As you can see I planted 2 seeds in one pot extremely close together(not smart on my part), I had these babies under 4 32 watt cfls(bowl reflectors) which I’ve been told is great for seedlings. I then saw these grow lights at target… I know target… but they had a par spectrum of 400-700 and I’ve read that the light spectrum is oerfevt for plants anyways I bought 2 of those and changed out 2 cfls for the 2 grow lights
These are about 4-5 days after sprout still looked great
These were 2 days later still with the same lights and everything
I then transplanted they went into a bit of shock due to roots beings harassed a little bit but nothing crazy and these are still under the same lights. Oh I forgot I tried to FIM them both before transplant which I probably shouldn’t have done I FIMed at the 4th node of both plants.
And then I got all of my equipment set it all up and they looked 1000% better not even 5 hours after being in their new home! So after all the trial and error and some cabbage everything is coming together.
These are about 3 weeks old I was worried that they weren’t going to make it due to FIM and transplant within 24 hours of each other, but they made it and I don’t think the FIM worked I have 3 new bud points coming out of one plant and 2 on the other(typical topping) but I am happy how everything has turned out!!
AND I COULDNT HAVE DONE ANY OF IT WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE ILGM FAMILY ! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Also I have questions about temperature and fan speeds this is what I’m looking at now lights are on the cloudline is at speed 5 and my exhaust is also about half way…
