Hi all. I have been researching and reading for sometime now. I have decided to do my first LED grow. I’ve chose a small tent to keep things low key. We are allowed 4 recreational plants per household here in Canada but I was going to stick with 2 for now.
Light - KingBrite QB288 3500k with 660nm Cree deep red
Tent - VIVIOSUN 36”x20”x62”
Venting - VIVOSUN 4’’ 195CM fan - VIVOSUN 4’’ Carbon filter - 4’’ Vent Ducting
General Hydroponics FloraTrio
Rapid rooter for seed starters
Smart Pot 5Gal
Other Supplies -
I am choosing to grow in my basement. There is a window near buy for venting if need be. I have been running the lights and fan for the past day along with watering my pots (no seedlings yet). I am trying to figure out what the temps and humidity will be. So far while lights are on I’m within good ranges, once light are out my humidity spikes to about 80%. I am going to get a dehumidifier for the basement tonight and I think this will help.
There she be in all her glory!
I went with Quebec Cannabis Seeds. I haven’t seen many people reviewing them but the selection was huge and pricing was decent.
I am currently germinating Grand Daddy Purple and Purple Kush.
The flowering time seems relatively the same so I figured they would work well together.
Please provide any feedback or more info where you can.
So based on all the readings I have been doing I have come up its this list of essentials for an ideal grow. Please let me know if my numbers are off or if I am missing something.
Tent temp - between 68-70
Flowering humidity - below 50%
Veg Humidity - 50-70%
Ph - 6-6.5
QB Light Height - 18-24’’ above canopy
Netting - 30-60cm(12-24in) above plant base
Veg lighting - 24hrs. Can add 6 of dark (18/6)
Flower lighting - 12 / 12 light dark
Vegetative 4-10 weeks
Flowering - 2-3 months
Water with lights are on
Keep water inside tent to not shock plants with temp difference.
