Hey everyone! I’m new to these parts and I’ve finally started my first grow. I’m so excited to share it with you and hear all of your great wisdom. Here’s the setup:
3x Super Lemon Haze
60x60x80” grow tent
2000W Full-Spectrum LED
6-bulb T5 light w/two actinics (forget the wattage)
As mentioned above, I have 3x Chocolope and 3x Super Lemon Haze growing in a 5x5x6.5’ grow tent. Each strain is in a 55g light-proof storage bin. Each reservoir is running two 2x4” air stones split over a 480l/h air pump, one pump and two stones per reservoir. There is a 4” inline fan pulling 190 CF/M through a 4x12” socked carbon filter. Two 6” fans are clipped to the frame, one front left corner blowing across the tops of the bins, one back right corner blowing just below the light toward the opposing corner.
It’s still fairly early yet (we’re only nine days in from germination), but the bins are full of ph-balanced tap water running at about 5.8. The lights are about 20” from the top of the pots. Temps right now are sitting at 75, humidity at 50%.
The seeds were rooted using paper towels and planted in Rapid Rooters. They were kept under T5 lights until the leaves popped out (about 30 hours) then we’re transferred to hydroton-filled 4” net pots suspended in the reservoirs. Currently, the water in the reservoirs is barely touching the hydroton in the pots with the bottom of the rapid rooter still being about 2” from the bottom of the pots. The bubbles are situated equidistant between the pots so water splatter should be hitting the hydroton nicely. Five of the six seedlings have their tap root shooting down into the water. I’m waiting for the root system to develop a little more, then I’ll lower the water level to not touch the pots.
I just put in round one of Humboldts Secret Nutrients and I’ll be attempting a SCROG-type grow style.
I welcome any and all suggestions and critiques! I’m so excited to move forward!
