Wow.......You guys (that includes girls when I say it) got me blushing. Really appreciate the love we got going on. Thanks.

You could say that I am anal about stuff. Drives my Wench crazy.

obZen ....Any pics of the sink area, records, etc. ?

Very interested on how you keep this ship in order.

Keep up the good work, Cap'n Crunch got nothing on you.
Good question.

Here is your answer.

Lets go back to the entrance of "The Cave". Your standing in the doorway looking at the mothers. Step down one step and walk across to the door into the veg room and turn around.

Looking into the mother room:




Walk to the far left corner and turn around: Door is closed.



Look to the left and you see a cabinet (the front drops down / makes a shelf that I clone on) stores misc mumbo jumbo, an electrical rats nest(I'm building a relay box to handle this), a medical certification notice (to keep it legal)(cropped out), my ladder and a very important item...... A CALANDER.



Up Close and personal A valuable tool for the perpetual farmer. You always have to know what to do and when to keep the ball rolling smooth.



Look Back towards the doorway and you see the sink, cabinets, storage drawers etc.. I plumbed the sink from the front area of the workshop (which is really an outbuilding about 120 feet from the main house). I tapped from an existing washer / dryer area. Under the sink is a water hose and a manifold with attachments for up to 4 more hoses. Why the manifold? Hell..........just because I wanted it. The trash can under the sink is for cuttings, dead leaf and organic materials only. I have another trash bag that takes all other trash (for the trash man). The white plastic board stuck between the wall and the drawers is a sink cover I use when I clone. It doubles my counter space.





Record Keeping?
Yeah, I consider this very important. Ya gotta know what you did when something goes wrong. you need to be able to look back and see what worked and what didn't. What strains produce...OVERALL.....not just a one time shot. What nutes or additive did you use and how did the plants react what was the temperatures or humidity and how did that effect the plants. ETC. You get the picture. If you ever studied history and scientist or inventors, they kept and keep meticulous notes. Edison had thousands of note books. He build thousands of bulbs before he finally found the one that worked. We need to apply the same principles to our hobby, trade, or whatever you want to call it. I consider my Cave a Laboratory where I conduct experiments.

With that said, here is my Clone To Harvest Data Binder

Front cover. Ignore the OLD feeding schedule on the cover.(it does work well if ya want it) But I now use the Lucas Formula with amazing results and would highly suggest it to anyone. This is a small 5 x 8 index card type 3 ring binder. $1.00 at a thrift shop. (Pirate is thrifty)



Back Cover. This was important BEFORE I went with Lucas because the nutes I fed depended on the week the plant was in. With Lucas.........It matters not. Its so easy..........A cave man could do it.



Opening the binder you will see TABS. Each tab corresponds to a Table either in bloom or veg. If I am working on a specific table I just open to that tab and BAM........all my previous data is there in all its glory.



This is page taken from the Binder. I use 5 x 8 index cards found at any office supply store and the card was created in "MS WORD". This is an old style card. I'll show you my new BLANK style in a bit.
This is the FRONT of the card:



Here is the Back of the same card




OK. I was never happy with my data cards because they got confusing with pants in different stages of growth. I finally came up with one I like a lot better. This single card will cover the entire plant from CUTTING to HARVEST and then record the harvest data as well. If ya like it..........FEEL FREE TO USE IT !! (like I could stop ya anyway) :smile: When I cut the clones I record the info in the clone section. After they root, I transfer the card to the pre-flower section of the binder and record data. Then move the card to bloom room section of binder till harvest. (You get it) One card from CLONE to HARVEST) I assume the card lines need no explanation except for maybe the clone section. I label a batch of clones on the date they are cut and that # follows them right through to harvest. Example: Strain ID would be: Speed Queen = SQ1 (if I had, say, 4 speed queens) Batch #= 12-31. That batch # tells me that these were cut on Dec 31st. (I don't track the year) The batch #s come in handy when I am 90 days down the road and close to harvest. It just keeps things simple for me. It also is handy for my computer. I track my perpetual schedule on my computer in OUTLOOK CALANDER. I cannot show screen shot of that for security reasons) But the batch #s are key for tracking the perpetual schedule and what table its going on and when.

Oh yeah. I do not record data every day in clone. Only 1 time per week in Pre-Flower and 2 Times per week in Bloom. You could always print the sheet onto a normal 8 x 11 sheet and increase the data lines.

Here is the new style card: FRONT The small square box at the right side of the NOTES section is where I would place a CHECK MARK or X when I record extended notes to the back of the card. An example of a NOTE I might leave on the front would be: Top Off.......or.........Flushing.



And back of SAME card: The top 4 lines are the last 2 weeks of bloom. (2 data points per week)



When I am checking my Rezes and changing or toping off I carry this around with me. Its Consolidated and holds everything one needs it get it done.




HEY............You asked !!!!

I got a new toy today. This sucker has removed 3 gallons of water from my bloom room within 7 hours. And to top it off..........Its RO water. I'll use it for seedlings and stuff like that.

Tomorrow I'm gonna make room and maybe build a shelf to put it on. I had to get it in there fast because my humidity was climbing up to 75%. Withing 3 hours it was down to 53%. I should have got one of these a long time ago.

Keeping records is a top move, great for a growroom, not to mention all those "Treasure maps" you have kept people busy with over the years.
