As I close in on my first harvest I start this in hopes more experienced peeps will take a look and help me improve. Currently I am at day 60 of 12/12 on the first 4. I am trying to do a perpetual but my timing needs a little work. So a little history..
First of August I picked up some clones Lemon Skunk, NYSD, Ghost OG, Pineapple Haze, Bubba Kush, Samaria OG, Panama Red, Holy Grail, Motorbreath and Godhead. Within the same week I had 3 seeds pop, this was bagseed from Williams Wonder/Southwest Stomper. My mother in law really wanted this one grown . Lighiting is 2 300w CMH and a 400 MH. The veg area is about 6x 10. I really wanted to keep the plant count down to about 12
At this point I knew next to nothing about hydro. I started out with DWC because it sounded easiest and cheap to get started. About a week later I inherited a bunch of 4x4, 4x8 and 3x8 trays. So I took those 3" DWC cups and put them into Hugos. Make up your mind already... right
At some point I got into heavy research mode and to some extant am still there. One of my first things was cheaper nutrients as I thought paying large amounts of money for water was ridiculous. Having owned a commercial nursery before I knew better. In some thread somewhere else Jacks was mentioned. And googling Jacks recipe took me to D9's PPK system thread. I forget which one first but I think I read them all twice, the second time making notes.
Some eye candy for those who just want to see pics.. canapy shot day 50 and holy grail at day 60
