What's up guys, first grow log after lurking for one year. Showing you my DWC grow, done in a closet with folding doors in my spare bedroom. I'm three harvests in:
NYCD F2's by AnnaC. 5/5 popped, vegged for one week and flowering since 5.28.08. 4/5 female, culled the one male today.
To the right of the NYCD's are 5 Thai Stick Sativas from Gypsy Nirvana. 5/6 popped, been flowering since 5.6.08. They were vegged to less than six inches tall, but as you can see they've stretched like 10x. They're now 5 feet, give or take. Stretch has finally slowed, and I think it'll stop soon. I hope...
These are my Flo moms. These are S1's made by a friend of a friend. This is my third run of the Flo. Good smoke, very much in the head, potent when cured for a month, but I'm looking for a more clear head high. The Flo, to me, seemed like a 'heavy' head high, if that makes sense. I've got 5 cuttings rooting in peat pellets as we speak, I expect to put them in the veg tub within a week, then a week or so of veg until put into the flowering closet.
Specifics of my setup:
2x400w HPS and MH (flowering closet)
2x22w UVB bulbs (each two feet long, the uvb 10.0 ones you get from petsmart - i think they help the trichs go amber quicker, from informal observations of my latest harvest).
4 foot 80w flourescents for veg/cloning
Closet exhaust is 2 of those cheap 6 inch duct fans from Home depot. Passive intake (through gaps in folding doors).
Odor control is a big can fan with an 8 inch squirrel cage fan to serve as a carbon scrubber for the room, set to go off every hour for a few minutes.
Reservoir is nothing but ph corrected tap water (the water is pretty good around here) and lucas formula using GH Florabloom and Floramicro.
Lights on temp (during nighttime) is around 85 F, lights off temp (during day time) is around 80 F. Little warm, I know, but much better than before I put a window A/C unit in. Temps before window unit were 99+ during lights on, high 80s during lights off.
Still got some decent buds even with the out of control temps, but I'm hoping with the improved temps things will be much better.
I have space for two more tubs in the closet, four total, so I'm thinking I can get 3 harvests every two months or so (assuming the NYCD finish in 60 days with at least a third amber trichs, like the Flo does), with the Thai Sticks probably taking 4 months flowering.
Future strains I'm considering are: Rez's gear (specifically chemdog and kush projects), Kryptonite stuff (kushes), any good indica to add variety to my mostly sativa lineup.
