Refrigerator & First Time Grow


#3

I just ran out of likes, but I’ll be watching, and have a look here:


#4

Thank you for the affirmation. @James68.

Will do @elheffe702


#5

@KingCrimson Hey King neat setup, great band. welcome to the forums am a newbe so i won’t offer anything but a good luck on your grow! i am rooting for ya.


#6

Your refrigerator set up is cool ! I use the trio and follow this nutrient schedule


#7

No nutes needed yet, don’t keep it sopping wet either. You can pretty much give a mist or two with spray bottle if you notice drying out. If you don’t have one, fabbing a small dome over it would help right now too.


#8

Looks fantastic mate, will be following along. Best of luck!


#9

Thanks everyone!

@monkman I agree!!!

@dbrn32 thank you. Did I calculate my light/sq ft correctly? And do you have any thoughts on coco and nutes? Particularly the schedule I put up. Also I believe some people add epsom salt. My thoughts were to start at 1/2 the nutes recommended at 3-5th node, top when at 6th, then full recommended nutes from then on. Recommended being that schedule above. Not what the mfg suggests.


#10

Appears you did math correctly, and should be a reasonable setup.

I’ve never used the gh, but from following along it seems a lot of growers have luck using lucas formula with the micro and bloom.

Your going to have to keep a weather eye out for mold in the refrigerator.

Have a bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide handy and dilute with water for the knockout effect.
The % depends on where you live in this planet, here in the UK its 6% but I believe in America its 3%…I use a spray mister / spritzer with water diluted with 6% Hydrogen Peroxide …its a bummer if you get any in your eyes by the way ! BEWARE !!!

Awsome, I also converted a fridge for a grow box. I use it for my clones and small plants to start. I removed to fan from under fridge and mouted it up on side of fridge for exhaust.



I use the bottom(freezer part) for storage of nutes and such. Works great.


#13

@dbrn32 what would you do to improve the set up? Get a different light? Move to a tent?

@James68 I’m hoping I have enough air flow with the 2 6” fans, and 2 smaller ones. But I will definitely keep my eye out.

@Liljoe nice fridge. I found mine because a neighbor threw it out. After I cleaned it up, it got me wanting a mini fridge for seedlings.


#14

I probably wouldn’t change anything until you get a grow or two on it to see how it does. I would’ve went different route with light, but one you have should work.


#15

@dbrn32 I’d love to know what you would have done light wise. I was most weary about picking the light to begin with.


#16

@Gardenguy is this schedule for coco autos or coco photo. I’ve seen 2 different schedules like this for coco. In fact, we might have gotten our charts from the same source.


#17

I used it with photos and autos in Coco and in dwc


#18

Very clever @Liljoe and @KingCrimson ! And welcome kingcrimson I would like to follow your journey. Appears you did a lot of research in preparation. I bet you do great. From what I’ve noticed, the new growers that do their research tend to do a lot better than those that pop the seed and then say, what do I do now. This forum is great and there are a lot of knowledgeable growers. I hope you like it here, I do :v::green_heart:


#19

I would’ve built my own for sure.


#20

21st century schizoid man great name lol

#22

@Gardenguy do you do flushes in between feedings, or feed every water?

@greenjewels thank you for the kind words. So far this place has been great! I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from everyone.

@dbrn32 one day I hope to get there.

@Smokinnuggs @James68 hell yea boys!!!
