    They actually worked well in a pinch. I'm working on some MH 100 watters for a new veg space, quite possibly a complete revamp or overhaul of my grow area. I picked up the MH ballast for 15$ at a habitat restore. I just need to get the bulbs.

    Well Guys, I haven't been on here updating my grow like I should! I will do my best to keep up!

    So I have been busy! I have had a lot of additons to my growing space which is one of the main reasons I haven't been on here. I have had quite a few nights-into-mornings trying to get these additional changes made!

    I have now upgraded my whole area, I am now sporting a Veg/cloning room and Blooming/Flowering room. The Veg room is a 5'x4'x5' and the Blooming room is 8'x5'x5'. I had some lumber I found someone was trowing out from another grow someone kept, LoL, so I used that on my blooming room. I then used my DIY PVC method to create the frame of the VEG room. Moved some things around and BAM!

    Veg room sports, 100WMH, 300WCFL, I have another 100WMH to add and will soon. I also have some LED lighting in there for clones.

    Heres a pic of the room/Tent

    I have been having a lot of success with cloning in perlite as well as starting seeds and this will probably be my prefered method moving forward due to such great success!

    Mothers- I have Three In the Pink, Cookie and Gorilla Glue

    Looks great, well done!
    If you have to use wood, try treating it with a wood preservative that has copper in it to prevent the porous surface from becoming a hideaway for pathogens. Or heavy paint on both surfaces to make it nonporous.

    Thanks stinkyattic! I will need to do that, carefully. Thats one thing that I didn't figure in right now, but will need to be on the list! What product would you reccommend!? I do have some lumber that needs to be treated! My blooming room has wood frame now as well as the platforms I have in my Veg.

    Well I moved some things around. Moved pre-flowers to flower. I'm getting ready to harvest these girls they're just about ready. One plant I have been chasing on keeping it green. The others have done well too. IMG_20191205_001028089.jpg IMG_20191205_001036253.jpg IMG_20191205_001039867.jpg

    Repotted clones in perlite mini Solo's into soil Solo cups. Took more clones. I have a great mix going for my SOG perpetual. It's finally shaping up. IMG_20191205_001054495_HDR.jpg

    I've been using perlite for cloning and have seen such great results in just 4-5 days!

    This was actually one of the less rooting ones. All of the clones had a lot more roots than this! I decided to take pictures on the last one, lol ;-)
