    Going to be firing it up earlier than usual. The Wife is getting a little paranoid that she will run out of Meds before next harvest.
    Since we got the new AC a couple months ago and the new skylights on the 2nd floor are done there is no real reason not to get the Show on the road. The Grow Room stays cooler now and since it will be at least 4-6 weeks of Veg I should not run into any heat issues.

    First up is the choice of beans since I am not holding any clones. I went through the Bean Vault and pulled out some contenders. The pic below shows them.

    From the choices above I have selected OG18 x Skunk and East Coast Sour Diesel x Tres Dawg. They will be joining some S1's of Boysenberry so that I know I am going to get females.

    Beans will get soaked in H2O for at least 24 hours and then put into my usual soil of choice. Miracle Grow Seed Starter will perlite and sweet lime added.

    Veg Tent is 4x4x5.
    Lights will be a 1200 King LED.
    Solo Cups to start. Then on to 1/2 Gallon Pots. Then 1 Gallon Smart Pots for Flower.
    Nutrients will be GH 3 Part.

    Hopefully, I can stay on top of the updates now that the new software makes it way easier to post pics.

    Here is a Tip. If you own more than 1 tent and you take them all down. Separate the parts. Lol. I put all my tents parts together in one spot. So now I get to go through all the pieces and figure out which ones go to the 4x4x5.

    So the 2 Boysenberry S1's are doing well and getting bigger. Nothing from the other cups so I dumped each one out and sifted through the dirt to see if maybe they were struggling to break ground. Nothing. Found the beans but no germination.
    I had figured they were toast so a couple days ago I dropped 4 Purple Peyote x Deep Chunk in water and then soil. Hopefully, these do better. 20180808_193445.jpg 20180808_193449.jpg 20180808_193452.jpg

    While they are seedlings they are under a large CFL Bulb. Once they go into the tent they will go under the King 1200 until it's time to start flowering. Then the 1200 and 1500 will go in the 4x4x6.5 Flowering Tent and the Veg tent will get an HO T5 unit put in it.
