    my new grow room/closet...CFL's for veg, 8xT5 flower

    Hey guys...well here is my first attempt at a grow room and growing period. haha. I have a friend and I have been doing A LOT of reading off this site. Also some video's on youtube...haha.
    well this is my system in process, should be complete by this coming weekend. Any questions/comments about the grow or the room are entertaining













    First Grow - Closet Grow, Crystal Strain - EBB Flow - Always in need of new tips and tricks

    how is something that is grown naturally illegal? Shouldn't law enforcement be more interested in the real crime in the streets...oh but wait...if they didn't drug bust, how else would they get free pot??

    GO FOR THE GREEN!!!:joint:

    I like the setup, it looks very well thought out. What strains are you going to throw in there?

      You've transformed your walk in to a grow lab. Were are you going to hang your clothes lol?

      If I had that sorta space I'd drop a 600 vertical and grow six 8-10 ounce trees with 1-2 each of my keeper strains. Check out superconductors grow in the coco forum. That style is hard to beat when space is available. Looks like your digging hydro so you could go 10 gallon rubbermaid DWC with little trouble.

      I'll be watching good luck.

        Hey guys...thanks for checking out the setup. First off i'm going to grow White Widow. A friend of mine imported seeds from Amsterdam of White Widow and Crystal.
        I should have my first set of clones this weekend.

        I will post more pics then!


        ...oh and for the clothes...i'm now using a dresser that has a closet and drawers...the plants are more important to have in the closet. hahaha

          The first day with the Clones

          Well I decided to go with some Crystal since they seemed to flower much faster then the White Widow.
          I am working with the Lucas Formula right now. (Highly recommended)
          630 ppm
          6.04 pH
          77 deg F

          Drippers will be hooked up this weekend. I'm moving the grow Closet to another on in my place, so I didn't want to set the Res up then have to move it.

          Any questions and comments are entertaining

            hey bro. nice setup so far. A suggestion if I may. I would replace those cfls with new ones that are 5500 - 6500 color temp for veg and clones. that will make them stretch less and make the nodes tighter.

                Thanks for the heads up...I will have to check which ones I have, but I know on the package there were 3 stages, and these were in the middle cuz they didn't have any more towards the "Sun" side of the spectrum...

                Well here are the girls as of day 6 in the closet (16 days old)

                640 ppm
                6.1 pH
                78 deg F


                seems like everything is going pretty good...got one plat with a couple leaves rollin up, and some lower leaves with brown tips...any ideas? Im going to post another thread with that question...but if you have any suggestions, please post.
                Thanks for stopping by!

                  Well...i might have a slight draw back...looks like the 2 possibly 3 on the left...taller ones...look like males...so i might only have 2-3 to harvest.
                  The really bushy one is for sure a female, so i think ill just clip some clones off her and start a large crop off those ones any maybe just harvest 1-2 for my first time...but they are coming along nicely.


                  Here is Day 21 from clone in Veg

                    well here is a pic of the 2 girls in their new closet...getting more lighting hopefully this weekend.

                    I'm now running the girls on a timer feeding twice a day for 18 mins. Takes 4 mins to fill and 4 mins to drain, and I have them soaking for 10 mins. I finally have a little 6 gal res...and yes it is a Ice Chest :smile: found it in my closet...so till this weekend it will work :wink:

                    The one on the left will be getting trimmed soon for clones, and she will become my mother...and just let the right one flower for my first grow to learn the system.

                    Thanks for reading!!!

                      well here is one being trained for SCROG (just getting some experience with the sideways training) and the other is going to get trimmed all down tonight for clones...then veg 1 more week and then they will start flowering cycle.
                      everything is going pretty good...being my first grow and all...but there are some things I will do better next round.

                      Thanks for watchin!

                            Looks like that will be a nice space Achromic! definitely vigorous strains you've got there, should be a healthy plant

                            You're going to need to swap out those cfls with "daylight" ones (save warm or soft-white for flowering). Your nodes are REALLY far apart, that tall one looks like a tree sapling. when you clone, try and get the lights no more than 6cm away from the tops. and bury them into the medium as far as you can
                            i'm fighting the war on drugs

                              haha...ook...so maybe that screen wasn't the right type for SCROG...haha...the bars ended up being too close to each other, so there wasn't much light penetration...so I pulled it out of the screen and its standing back up for the most part and seems to be doing a lot better the last couple days.
                              Well i put them into Flowering today...so I will get some pics tonight and post tomorrow.
