Starting a Grow Journal for first time grower. I have selected the Zkittlez Autoflower. Setup will be as cheap as possible while maintaining control of grow. Below will be the setup as it is right now, pictures to come later. This grow will be to see how cheap one can be to grow. Follow along as I ride this journey.
Cabinet grow area: 47"Hx31"Wx21"D, Tin foil on walls for reflection
Light: $70 Giixer 1000W LED Grow Light, Dual Switch & Dual Chips Full Spectrum LED Grow Light Hydroponic Indoor Plants Veg and Flower-1000 watt (10W LEDs 100Pcs)
(Note: yes might be low but I want to see what I can get away with)
Nutes: $60 Total Sensi Grow & Bloom A&B
Growing Vessel: $4 5gal bucket
Growing Medium: 45 Mother Earth Coco+Perlite Fans: ??? Two personal size fans (Will be picking up today)
Venting: None, cabinet doors will be opened a little if needed
Heating Mat: Not sure what kind or price I have had for years and years.
Received seeds on 4-27-21. Placed seed into glass with RO water on heating mat. Left in water for 24hrs and with no tail showing at the 24hr mark, but seed had sunk to bottom. Moved seed to wet paper towel and zip lock bag and set on heating mat. Within 8hrs seed had show signs of a tail. Gingerly place seed tail down into soil in a clear cup on heating mat. Decided to use clear cup to visual see roots and dryness of soil. Not sure if it will make a big difference.
This morning marks day 1, seedling has emerged from its slumber.
Light will be kept at 15" distance from seedling. Watering will be kept to spray bottle when needed with no nutes.
