    hi guys. yup, the title says it all. that's a story for another day though.

    so my set up is small at 3x4x5 with a 600 mh/hps and a 8" inline fan and scrubber. media is 70/30 coco/perlite with azomite and great white. nutes are GO full line, molasses, ewc, dry humic and fulvic acid. seeds were all fems, 1st time with those so hope all goes well. strains are: 2) sensi seeds - durban, 2) big buddha - chiesel and 1) world of seeds - nl x big bud. was just going for 4 plants but one of the chiesel's was real slow getting to the party so i dropped a freebie (nl x bb). both seeds of big buddha's were slow compared to sensi's durban, that are taking off and are the same age. the nl x bb is almost a week behind. i water 2 twice a week, one just a molasses/water and the other is a light ewc, fish, and kelp tea. feeding is once a week at 1/4 strength. in soil i would not be feeding yet but coco is another game. plants are 12 days old. room is trying to be kept around 80-85* with ~70-80% rh. nl x bb up front, chiesel in mid, duban in back. i am using mh for light to help with heat and it is 30" away showing off 10,ooo lux. a little much for seedlings, but it's up all the way and they don't seem to mind.

    it's definitely good to be in the grow again and to come share it with common friends.

    ok guys, plants are 2.5 wks old and looking like i might need to up the nutes to 1/2 strength? the single leaves started showing signs of a ph imbalance. i knew ph was going to be off seeing how they aren't in an established pot. saturday, i did my mid week water with 4ml hygrozyme, 2.5ml camg+, 15ml molasses, 2.5ml coco wet per gal. ph of water was 5.62 after 24hr bubble and runoff was 6.8 to 7.3 on the 5 plants. temps have been in the low 80's and rh swings from 20-80%. i don't have an extraction fan going as of now as it would pull all the humidity out. the room does have a 6" hole up high for ventilation and there is a low intake vent on the floor so the room is getting only air exchange through convection. i only have a fogger that holds 1 gal so that spikes the rh up to 80% and then only lasts for about 4 hrs before the water is gone and a few hrs after its back down to 20%. it's the best i can do for now. the shiny/waxy spots are from a previous foliar feed of the tea that was fed to them on saturday. i'm thinking of doing a humic/fulvic acid and kelp foliar with camg+ as a few show a calcium lockout (littlest plant). all thoughts are welcome and thanks for looking.
