I am currently resurrecting my medical grow, and I figured it would be a good time to start a grow journal. I think I have most of the basic principles down, but I am by no means an expert. This is the first garden that I am putting together in our new home.
The veg closet is pretty much setup and functional for my starters. However I still need to get my aero cloner bucket up and running.
The flower room is still a work in progress. I am still kind of debating on whether or not I should devote all my time and energy to getting my other LED light mounted, since I am planning on installing some HPS lights, an A/C, and some fans & duct when we get our tax returns
So, here goes:
Lights: (2) 19w LED fixtures
Grow Medium: Coco Coir/Perlite
Genetics: GrandDaddy Purps
I put up a layer of cardboard on the windows before blocking them out with the panda film, to help with added insulation and light blockage. I also put up some panda film around the edges of the door, since I saw some light leaking out in to the (soon-to-be) flower room.
There was a single hook already mounted in the ceiling when we moved in, but i wanted to mount two lights, so I Engineered this little setup with an old fast-food tray and a single lightweight chain.
I have the lights mounted about 3 1/2 ft. From the grow cups (can’t really call it a canopy yet, lol).
The first bunch of sprouts died on me because it was too cold in there, so I put the radiating space heater in there and added a small fan to circulate air/heat
