Clayton Bigsby's Underground Grow DWC & Soil

Hello friends. A short introduction before we kick this grow off. I have been a member of Icmag and grasscity for about 6 years but never had a legit grow. Well I decided to finally build a room after years of telling myself there wasn't a good place in my house to do it. I decided to change user names because to many old friends knew my previous user name.

If you dont have a sense of humor then this probably wont be the the thread for you because my blunt sense of humor is going to offend you. Its all jokes though. Every race, creed, color is fine by me but will probably get made fun of somewhere in this thread.


OK, now about the grow. The room was dug out of a crawl space under my house. It was a BITCH! pick axe and shoveling is no fun, especially when there is no room to work in. Well anyways, got the hole dug and threw an insulated frame around it and split in into two rooms. the veg room is 3x4.5 and 8 feet tall with a 400 watt MH. The flower room is 3x5 and 8 feet tall with a 600 and a 400 watt HPS. Three Weeks and 2 grand later. Here she is












Strains go as follows:
5 Jack Herer from sensi seeds
1 Feminised Super Skunk from Nirvana
1 Feminised ICE from Nirvana
1 Feminised White widow from Dinafem (attitude freebee)
1 Feminised Autoflowering Hobbit from Kannabia (attitude freebee)
1 Feminised Autoflowering Mikromachine from Kannabia (attitude freebee)


Total 10 plants. 4 of them (all Jack Herer) will be in a DWC tupperware bucket. I will be running Botanicare CNS17 Grow, CNS 17 Bloom and Cal Mag along with fox farms Big Bloom, Grow Big, and Tiger Bloom.


The rest will be in Organic soil. My recipe is borrowed from one of these threads i stumbled on and i just altered it to my likings. Its

6 parts Pro mix BX
2 1/2 parts Fox Farms Ocean Forest
2 1/2 parts perlite
2 parts Earthworm Castings
Powdered Dolomite Lime (1 cup per cubic foot)
Less than 1 part Bone Meal

I will be feeding them organic tea with the recipe ( also borrowed from another member and altered. I would credit him if i remembered who it was)

Veg mix:

1/3 cup High N Mexican Bat Guano
1/3 cup Earthworm Castings
5 tsp Algamin Kelp Meal
(That makes the "dry mix". You can make all you want and save it to use later.)
Mix with water @ 2 cup of dry mix into 5 gallons of water to make the tea.
To the 5 gallons of tea add:
5tbs. Diamond Black Humic Acids
5 tbs. Blackstrap Molasses
a little bone meal
Use it every 3rd watering


Flowering mix:
2/3 Cup Mexican Bat Guano
2/3 cup Earthworm Castings
2/3 cup Indonesian Bat Guano
5tsp Algamin Kelp Meal
(That makes the "dry mix". You can make all you want and save it to use later.)
Mix with water @ 2 cups of dry mix into 5 gallons of water to make the tea.

To that 5 gallons of tea add:
5 tbs. Diamond Black Humic Acids
5 tsp. Black Strap Molasses

Use it to water with EVERY watering. (A little Bone Meal every 3rd watering)

I'll be checking it out. I like that you picked Clayton Bigsby as your name and a picture of Chef! Talk about adding value to the home. That looks like it was hard work man. Best of luck with the grow!

The dirt from the dig is in the crawl space next to the room and yes cooling is perfect down there. i have 2 400 watt and one 600 watt and the room stays at about 74-76. 62-67 while lights are off

More pics since my orginals got deleted.

Since the grow room is 3 feet underground, it made it pretty much impossible to lift a 15 gallon Tupperware container out to change the water. To make things easier i made a little pump with a hosepipe to pump the water out of the room and out from the crawl space. Makes things much easier.




I also tapped into my sink water that goes through an Aqua-Pure water filter which takes out most chlorine,dirt/rust sediment. i connect a hose pipe to the same water that comes out of my sink and lead it to my room to fill the 15 gallon bucket up.




Pics of the plants comming soon

So I just got done with some Bald Eagle hunting and decided i would take some pics of my babies.


Haha I joke, i joke. But seriously I did take pics.

Today is DAY 25. First are the autos. Both of my Autos are in Organic Soil. I gave them the first dose of my veg tea yesterday. The Auto Hobbit is growing very nice and has already showed shes a female. The Mikromachine hasnt showed sex yet but shes growing very nicely and looking sexy.
