Organizing my daily operations, observations, and tasks completed.
Entire life cycle, including post production, controlled in an "ideal" environment. Germination -> Seedling -> Vegetative -> Flowering -> Drying. Treated with equal importance.
Provide connoisseur cannabis for recreational users through the implementation of innovative techniques and effective use of acquired knowledge

March 10, 2014. 12:00 PM: Germinated (imbibition) (Six Seeds)
Cannabis sown directly in 1.5" Grodan Rockwool cubes, elevated upon 3" layer of charged + moist Turface (6.0, 250PPM) Depth of seedling?
Water Quality: R/O (7 PPM)
PPM (.5 Scale, Bluelab Truncheon): 250PPM
Nutrient: FNB (FloraNova Bloom, High P, Organic matter, humic + fulvic),
Water Temperature: 83
Tent Temperature: 85-88
Tent Humidity: 70% RH (Seeds - Loosely placed dome = ~80%)
Tent Circulation: 150CFM (75% power) recirculation, two oscillating fans (High+Low, neither direct)
Tent Ambient C02: ~400 PPM (C02meter)
Utilizing 600W Full Nova (SunMaster, 100%, Phantom Ballast) within air cooled hood (connected to fan controller, allows precise measurement) as heater. Seedling dome covered with Reflectix to impede intense vertical/direct illumination, although sides allow reflected light to enter (slow adaptation to illumination). 150W SSVL (Solid State Volumetric Lighting Fixture, Total Spectrum) oriented at 45 degree angle, at ~ 1' distance (~350 umol according to manufacturer).
Providing an ideal climate for seedlings allows for complete genetic expression
, thus creating a sound, stress free
structure which will position the seedling for success.
March 11, 10:00 AM, Radicle Visible
2/6 visibly advanced (millimeters protruding seed coat(testa))
Rockwool Temperature: 83
Turface Temperature: 83 (Slight dryness visible on surface)
March 12, 12:00 PM.
Cotyledon visible when inspecting radical (2/6)
1" Tap root (two samples)
Scare: Recirculating duct detached, spewing moisture rich air into lung room ~3 hours, raising rh to ~55%, encouraging mold growth on exposed dog treats. Lung room maintains ~40%, 70F
Establish once week bleach treatment
Excessive acoustic resonance within arc tube (600W SunMaster Full Nova 6000K), deeming the bulb incompatible with Phantom ballast. Replace with three month old "Ushio 600W HPS" while maintaining ideal temperature.
Increased circulation fan to 100% power, ensuring mold free environment, improving humidity profile + 02 from passive intakes
Saturate Turface with 16oz R/O H20 @ 6.0PH
Cotyledon visible above rockwool surface: March 12, 7:30 PM.
Disturbed rockwool to release sprout from stress
