Howdy ICMAG peeps!
I'm relocated and startig to settle down in my new digs....
setup a 6 lite room with 4 1kw HPS hung horizontally, 2 per 4 x 8 table and on the far side of the room one vertical raw bulb 860 watt Ceramic Metal Halide (powered by a magnetic 1k w MH ballast) and a 315 watt Agro Elite Ceramic Metal Halide powered by a ballast made by a company in Boulder, CO. Both CMH bulbs are made by philips.
On the far right of the room in a 4x8 flood tray I've setup plants in rockwool cubes on top of slabs of rockwool being fed by drip lines, drip to waste; plan on feeding one time per day with botanicare Pure Blend Pro until it runs out, then probably switch to dnya gro nutes:
most of the plants in rockwool are buddah's sister, altho there are some Boss's sister in there and a few flo og's as well
The rest of the room is all in organic soil, the majority of is recycled and re-amended from my last run in the "fresh start" room.
I'll be growing some new and new-ish strains from Rare Dankness (Corn Bread, Jenny's Kush, Harlox, and 2 phenos of Flo OG), Sin City Seeds (Las Vegas Bubba Kush, Boss' Sister [Buddah's sister x El Jeffe]) as well as a slew of other strains; any one who's seen my past grows will know that I cannot limit myself to single strains and I love diversity.... love the different flavors.
other strains in the mix are Harlequin (high CBD strain, 1:1 ratio, about 9% each), calio (nice clone only i got, tons of resin last round so it made the cut), my keeper pheno called "Caregiver" of Flo x Grimm Reaper, perhaps a flo in the mix... im sure there are a few im leaving out... like the Lemon Skunk x Lemon Larry OG Skunk that I've labeled "3L".
All the plants in round black pots are sexed and ready to go, the ones in bigger white square pots are from seed and unsexed.
you can see the vert 860 w CMH bare bulb in the back producing a very different quality of light compared to the 1kw HPS
I've mulched with alfalfa hay this round on all the organic plants that have been sexed, and plan on mulching the rest when sexed.
Also, i feel it should be said that all the plants shown have recently been transplanted and heavily loved on and treated for pests... prior to that they were in "stasis" underneath t5's while i got my personal life in order for a few weeks.
I plan on veggin only a short time longer, just enough to get a good round of clones off these ladies before flipping them into flowering....
