Sup ILGM family,
Here is my setup
Lighting: Mars hydro TS3000W
Medium: Coco Coir with peat moss (Verdana Coconut Fiber, pest moss soil)
Nutrients: Jacks 321
Watering reservoir with automatic watering system.
Small A/C unit pushing cooled air into my tent, I have a carbon filter with 6” ducts exhausting into the attic.
So I bought a brick of Coco coir with peat moss so I can start transitioning out of soil.
I laid out some plastic in the bathtub and started wetting the coco brick so it can start expanding.
I have read others expand their bricks with full nutrients since the coco does not contain nutrients. I did not do this for this grow but will plan to do for future grows.
I did however take expanded coco and put into a colander to sift out the small particles. Then fertigated with full strength CalMag. I wanted to use Jacks to fertigate but did not have the right products to do so. So here we are.
I had seeds that were spouted by placing filtered water in a Solo cup and then covering for three days.
I then placed the sprouted seeds into small starter pots. That were fertigated in the starter pots one more time before planting seeds. I went about an inch down with the root facing down and lightly covered the seed. I them placed plastic bags to increase humidity. Lux is 7-10K with 18 hours of light.
