Hello people of ILGM! Blasting here! I am pleased to come here and share this journey with you guys
First of all, let me explain to you my biggest fear about my growing… As my name suggests, I am a professional blaster from Canada, working on a 7days in 7 days off schedule (amazing yeah… but for growing…) meaning I will have to get my girlfriend to take care of these babies… I have a mentor already helping me trough this, who will be able to look out after them sometimes when I am not home.
Now that I explained a bit what I am going trough, lets go on with the setup, wich could use some suggestions
2x4x5 Fusionhut Grow tent.
2x 300W Mars LED.
Vivosun 4 inch speed controller inline fan
Ipower 4 inch carbon filter
Lamber sea-trio compost and lambert potting soil (recommended from local shop)
I will be adding HPS light in between my mars led’s. 250W? 400W ballast dimmable to 250? some input could be great here
Oh, and of course the most important part is here, put 10 seeds Soul Kiss regular seeds (Hash Plant x NYC Diesel x Bubblegum) in paper towels yesterday, hoping to get atleast 3 female out of this.
@Blasting ; Salut mon ami ! Merçi de m’avoir “tagger” et de me faire confiance Le reste sera en anglais pour que les autres puissent suivre… Hésite pas à me corriger ou me demander des clarification car mon anglais n’est pas toujours au point
First, you’ll always need to verify pH, always… even if a product contain pH buffers. Buffers products already presents in nutrients are for helping to have a more stable pH, not to compensate for to high or to low pH and certainly not to avoïd you to check it regulary and periodicly.
Here’s a link to Amazon Canada for a good pH pen :
And here’s the feeding chart for GH General Organics products :
Second, check the pH and ppm of your medium before transplant. Lambert potting soil and sea trio compost mix together will make your soil a “hot” one. And certainly do not start the seedling / sprouting in it . Not until the plantule have at least 4 to 5 nodes. The ppm for seedling / sprouting should be under 350 ppm.
So, you’ll also need a TDS pen meter and a seedling / sprouting friendly medium…
Here’s an Amazon Canada link for a TDS meter :
And here’s the soil I am using with 100% germination success, after soaking the seeds until they have tap rooted and will have minimum transplant choc since the pH is the same as for soil recommandations, between 6.3 and 6.8 with 6.5 as the sweet spot :
You can find it at any gardening store and big surfaces like Canac, Rona, Canadian Tire, etc.
Idéal pour les plantes tropicales et les plantes vertes

Hoping that you’ll find this helpful, do not hesitate to ask further questions…
P.s. Also, if you use city water, I strongly suggest that you buy a five stage water filter system like zero water
It will eliminate chlorine and fluoride and also all minerals. That way, ppm of the water is gone a be at 0. A pH up-down is a must too. GH makes a great one.
