Okay, so since I’m up to date on my journal, let me back up for a minute to talk about the process and the all important gear I’ll be using.
My grow tent might be small at only 2’×2’×5’, but it does the job – I only have to supply myself. I have it set up in the corner of my master bedroom … the hubster is not thrilled.
Anyway, inside I have a Vivosun 4" inline fan (2500 rpm) sucking the heated air (and smell) out at top with an iPowe 4" Air Carbon Filter connected to it whenever the smell gets overwhelming. I have another smaller inline fan at the bottom pulling fresh air in. Lots of air movement is important; I’ve never heard my plants complain of stagnant air.
My lighting consists of one Lightimetunnel 300W Full Spectrum LED that is used for both vegatative and flowering stages. I’m really happy with it and it was cheap, so no complaints. I also have four full spectrum CFL’s, one hanging down from each corner. They are more for my own eyesight and photography than for the plants, but a little suplimental lighting never hurt anyone.
As for fertilizer, I’ll be using FoxFarm’s Dirty Dozen. This stuff makes home-growing idiot proof, it’s also great for roses. I’ll be more specific as I record feedings.
That’s basically it. Simple, efficient and effective. My last grow (which was also my first) yielded over 2 1/2 dry ounces from two small plants and it was some of the finest MJ I’ve ever had. That’s a success in my book; I’m more interested in quality rather than quantity.
I hope you all stay with me to the end!
