First timer inside

Outdoor in Southern California is workable but the bugs and the smell last year made my decision to go inside.

Cleared part of my shed and added a 4x4 tent

Starting w seeds from crop kings
Tahoe og skunk one and Hawaiian skunk feminized
Tent has 4K led spider light
6 in fan w temp and humidity monitor
Soil in 3 to 4 gal pots(next batch is in fives)
Cloned before turning to flower
So many good clones I kept 8 and gave the rest away.
Currently 4 weeks into flower with my clone box topped and growing ready to take the tent after harvest.
Clone box has 2 k Vivosun light and made from insulation sheets
Lot to learn but lurking here and the web combined with my prior trials I think I am on a good track.
Here is my porn …I’ll try to keep in order!

I have been using a cocktail recommended by a grower. I have had to reduce much of what was recommended due to N reactions early and they seem happier with less than what was recommended.

@Prock I dig the size of your light, it almost stretches all the way across the 4’. What are its dimensions ? I like how close to the edges it gets for no shadowing on the wall sides away from the light. I do a lot of spinning so that I get even exposure…sorta lol.

Hi there. If in soil, raise the ph to 6.5 ish.
edit: oops i may have read wrong. I thought you meant RO water. maybe u mean runoff. Anyhoo, ph your water to about 6.5

It’s about 3x3
SF 4000 by spider farmers
About 500.00

Puts off almost no heat and it is dimmable
Been happy so far


I’m using a Vivosun 4000led and it’s doing it’s job but sees like it would be better wider like yours lol. Thank you for your response!!

RO water

Better potassium absorption at 6.5?

6.2 was what I was recommended to do, I have been nervous to max any of the numbers.
I had N tox early by trying the recipe I was given made adjustments down and been creeping along watching the girls.

Appreciate the tip

Optical illusion? tents look so much bigger, too

Did u add nutes too soon? Check your runoff. Very important to keep the balance.

Here’s a couple graphics to visualize what pH range helps absorption of which nutes in soil.

@beachglass I’m in a 4x4 and if his was the same his led board looks wayyyyy bigger. His tent looked home made, not a slight but maybe he’s bigger than 4x4?

Runoff is minimal to none on my water schedule. Today I did “over fill” based on my usual. Outgoing ph was 5.2

How would you change your outgoing ph without massive change to ingoing?

Veg box is home cooked 2x4 insulation panels
Today marks full 4 weeks in flower.
White tubes are “easy access” for watering. Have to make as easy as possible I have a caregiver helping me out soon when I go out of town.

I feel like they are all healthy and progressing well.
I figure leaves will start to yellow soon
Having fun!!
