Lets grow some weed

Hello everybody!
Just got a new led (mars hydro TS1000), so let's grow some weed.
I wanted to grow 4 plants and since I want this to be simple and take little of my time I've chosen autos.
We'll use Critical Kush for this first go.

Since the pack had an extra seed in it and to be sure I get at least 4 plants I've put 5 seeds to germinate.

As you can see we got 100% germ rate, so I decided one pot will hold 2 plants. I don't usually do this but 4 pots fit perfectly under the light, 5 not so much.

Pots are 12 liters each, organic soil mix made from lots of good stuff (unfertilised potting soil, peat, coco coir, spaghnum moss, earthworm castings, perlite, vermiculite, pumice, lava rock, zeolite, EM fungi starter, organic pellet fertiliser). Basically I've threw everything I got in there. I may have even forgot some amendaments I used.
As I think I've seen a fungus gnat when I opened the potting soil bag I put some sticky traps up to make sure they won't be a problem. I also sprayed the soil with neem oil mixed with water hoping it will repel any gnats that may be around.
Here is the whole set-up:

Light will be on for 24 hours a day for the first 2-3 weeks. For now it is 12 inch apart from the soil surface and since plants have not come out of the soil yet it is dimmed to 12W (almost minimum power).
I will soon add some vents and an extractor, some soil humidity sensors and maybe other stuff too. We'll see!
Everybody is welcomed here with advice, opinions,questions or just to say hello.
I will try to update the thread about once a week or if something interesting happens.

Thank you and welcome! My aim with this thread is to show weed can be grown with relatively cheap stuff and not much attention. My patience is not as available as when I was younger, and I learned less is more when growing weed. So hopefully I can just set it up properly and just watch plants grow.

The fugnus gnat i wasn't sure I saw was real, there are 3 gnats on the sticky tapes already. So I continued spraying with neem oil and water mix and also ordered 10 liters of pea gravel to put on the soil. If any of you know any other organic gnat control method please share.
The neem oil and water mix seems to stop the flyers in an instant, dunno if it works on larvae too, tho. Hopefully I can control them before they can harm the plants. I can't see any larvae on the soil yet.
I'm starting to regret my decision of not "quarantining" the potting soil like I always do, but I already put the seeds to germ before I realised I don't have enaugh unferted potting soil to fill the pots, so I had to buy some. But I'm sure I can get rid of them.
And for good news.. 2 of the seedlings are already above ground. I expect the others to follow soon. Once they are all out I will post some new pictures.

Later.edit: 4/5 are out of the soil, I only seen one more gnat and no larvae yet. The neem oil seems to work for now. Once the pea gravel is delivered and plants are all out of the soil i will cover the soil so that should end the problem for good.
I set the light at 40W for now.

As I said, 100 % germ rate.No sign of any more fungus gnats flyers and no larvae seen yet. The neem oil seems to work for now. Also, the pea gravel is ready to be put over the soil surface once the seedlings get a stronger stem. I don't want to risk breaking them with the gravel, especially since the gnats seem to have dissapeared for now.
I have installed soil humidity meters in 2 of the pots and I am reading room atmospheric pressure, relative humidity and temperature and also calculating VPD.
I have been lazy, no ventilation yet. But it will come.
See you laters!

That's the best advice you can give any new grower. But I guess we all just have to learn it for ourselves.

Nice clean setup. Good luck!

Best of luck brother
