I, myself, use Fox Farm products (photo op), but there's a plethora of companies that make quality ferts. It also depends on in you want to go organic or not. You have plenty of time to look and ask around for opinions, they wont need nutes for a week or two. As far as a fan, use anything for now. Even if all you have is one of those big-ass sqaure house fans, just put on low and bounce the air off walls and ****. Gotta move(and exchange) the air.

Damn, I just wrote this long ass reply and went to post it and the sever was too busy...lost it all.
But anyway. I wish I could help you out w/ the fan thing, but I fear any wiring info I could give you could quite possibly result in fire damage to your grow room and anything attached to it. sorry. Can't have that on my conscience. Have you asked around in other tred sections?(set-ups/lighting?)
I'm sure one of these very knowledgable brothers and sisters could help you.

As far as Fox Farm...I, and everyone I know that uses it, swears by it! I havn't tried the soil yet, but they seem like really good mixes. Again, the people that use it LOVE it. I use my own compost with FF ferts-"Grow Big" for veg and "Tiger Bloom"+"Big Bloom" for flowering. FF also has some enhancers
out there but I haven't tried them yet either. I'm sure they're killer too.

I would like to try "Avanced Nutrients" products but can't affor them @ present. It's specifically engineered for cannabis , and in every study I've seen done on it, it's blown everything else out of the water.

Will do I wired the fan with a 9v plug and the fan is a 12v but its the highest i could find do you think that is electrily not safe i taped off the wires and everthing no open circuts and it seems to be working good.

Edit: With the help of GreenDayGirl and her electrician friend I was able to find out you don't need to worry about it catching on fire but having the wrong voltage after time is hard on the fan motor and may burn out the motor on the fan over time. He says it could last that way for maybe two years.

worth it in my books thanks again

when you transplant you can fill dirt up to the first leaf.. next time you plant put your baby half way inside your planter...then you can add some dirt up to the first leaf growth .....and if you get some light wind happening...that stalk will thicken up

thanks for posting a pic :D
