This is my first attemp at growing. Did quite a bit of research, but so many different ways to grow apparently. After way too long thinking about it i finally started.
Veg room 2×5×8 closet grow
Light- T5 216 watt 4/4ft bulbs running 18/6
1-4" exhaust fan in ceiling that blows warm air back into house
2-6" passive air that come into bottom of closet from another room inside house. Regulated air!
Temp is steady during day at 75° at plant level. Night has fluctuated down to 55°. I put heater inside with a sensor timer so autommatically comes on at night. Not sure what temp I should keep at night. I’ve kept it at 68° last couple nights. Humidity is a bit low at 35% during day and 45% at night. Not using a humidifier.
3 northern lights
2 Manderin haze
Put in solo cup with distilled water. I have well water and isn’t idea for this with all the other particals in the water. 2 days with all of them cracking, then transferred to paper towels. At the time I couldn’t keep them warm so it was slow and only 4 made it to soil.
Like I said, this is my first time and am really excited, maybe a bit too much cause I kept messing with them and 2 didn’t sprout out of the soil. It was all my own fault for not having patience. 1 of each made it.
Anyway, soil is light warrior seed starter. I have fox farm for after seedling stage.
I gave them about 4 days before I dropped 6 more in water
2 more northern lights
2 ulter white amnesia
This time I put them on top of water heater. 4 cracked in 1 day, transferred to paper towel. And kept them covered with a bowl to keep in moisture. Must have worked because 2 days later they were at least half inch or longer. Transferred to smaller solo cups and covered with saran wrap with holes in it for some air an more humidity. This has been 3 days ago and they 3 have already sprouted out of soil.
The 2 carnival seeds are still in water and haven’t cracked. Maybe I should take them out and put him in paper towels. I’m not sure they might be dead. I’ll keep an eye on them for a bit longer. Not using mylar but will be using white paint on walls. Just waiting on weekend when I have time.
It been 1 week for blue cups and 4 days for Brown cups.
I notice their is some yellowing of the lower round leaves. How bad is this?
- In the veg room is 8ft but only 7ft usable. Would I be able to stack another level to grow more. Right now im looking at keeping 3 with topping when things get crowded.
- Will humidity mess me up if it’s too low?
It’s steady at 35% day and 40ish at night.
- Anything im missing? I just found this forum so happy with any help. Much appreciated!
