    A decade or so ago I did my first grow and i shared it here! My first grow was a purple kush bag seed that i named Alice and it ended up being mostly unsuccessful from complete lack of patients and skill and poor equipment/soil/nutrients. After my failed attempt i was still living with my parents and pretty much lost interest and went back to purchasing my needs.

    That being said things have changed over the years and I of course have grown. A father now and a husband, one thing hasn't changed though and that is my love and passion or all things marijuana! But the cost has never been appealing to me!

    The New Grow room and Grow was built and started back in the begining of Oct 2019 and I want to MAKE IT CLEAR i am well aware i am not using the best stuff and everything that is used is/was within my budget I already have a full understanding of possible grow lights that can be utilized to grow MJ and have chosen a 100% full LED grow as it fits within my budget , grow requirements and it peaks my interest

    That also being said I am aware HPS and HID are the prefered lighting method by many of you and i will completely agree with anyone that it is probably the best lighting for big indoor yields I have chosen LED because its cheap , its cool , and the science behind the light color spectrums of LED interest me.

    Also want to let the cops reading this know that i have less then 6 plants and am in full compliance with recreational law of my state. My grow room is in a room with a lock and key in my personal bedroom =) hahaha just kidding there all just plastic and this is a simulation im doing for college...

    THE NEW GROW 2019!

    Main Lighting: TWO 1000w (Equivalent) Gixxer full spectrum LED grow lights Comparable to a 400-600w HPS/HID only uses 110w each!

    Side Lighting: Miracle LED 150w Equivalent Red Bloom and Blue Grow bulbs 2 of each in the corners of the partial walk in closet with reflector domes. x4

    Soil: Fox Farm Ocean Forest

    Nutrients: Fox Farm Liquid Lineup , Tiger Bloom , Big Bloom , and Grow Big , Cal/Mag

    Sweetner: FoxFarm/Bushdoctor Bembe

    Water: Distilled

    Humidity is kept between 35 and 55% (Desert Life) with a humidifier

    Grow Room Dimmensions are 8-10 ft ceiling height , 6-7ft wide , 3-4ft deep walls are lined with smooth mylar floor lined with relective waterproof tarp.

    Plants are in there forever forever homes (except runty and the sprout) currently in 4-5 gallon planting pots with oil drain pans as there drip trays.

    Plants: Im using Bagseed from a family member who collects seeds.
    Plant #1: Agent Orange x Ak-47?
    Plant#2: aka Runty , Agent Orange x ?
    Plant#3: King Louis x SFV OG
    Plant#4: King Louis x ?

    Plants are almost 6 weeks into veg from seed with another 2-3 weeks planned or whenever i feel like switching them to 12/12 ( size matters)

    We have one confirmed female in the agent orange ak47 cross with runty not showing any signs and the other 2 louis's getting close with possible female pre - pre flowers showing on the loop.


    Many pictures to upload and i promise all be back!

    Also wanted to mention the agent orange crosses were started in bunk coco and most of them died and got damping the 2 i have are the ones that survived the fungal infected soil out of 10 seeds that all popped =( i then proceeded to try all sorts of remedies before finding out it was the soil and stunted them for awhile. And then I over watered the Louis's and stunted them as well... Normally id say in an ideal situation with a professional grower the plants should be a bit larger at this stage but it is what is is i suppose =)

    For the sides of the plants/more light penetration/ more light in general/ whole plant light saturation

    Looking Great! Welcome back to MP! Its great to have another cultivater here in the group! Good luck to you and grow with plenty of TLC and your plant will show you the love back, I promise!
    I too started out only wanting to do LED however, I ended up with a mix setup of LED and HID, the mix is working great for me. I have a couple of LED grows under my belt and was completly happy! I did however, want to experiance everything for cultivation so I have now mixed in HID and am also completly happy! Lots of TLC!

    Another female confirmed in the broadleaf King Louie cross the two other plants have pre flower site but no white hairs yet so I'm holding off on calling those but I am 90% on those as well Did some very light lollipopping to both the King Louie's this morning removed very tiny Branch node that has been sitting in Perpetual smallness on the very bottom of the plants. Other than that probably another 2 to 3 weeks boring veg

    In veg just standard grow ferts with humic acid if you feel fancy. Keep it simple.
    Look at carbon sock filters, I'm too lazy to go down cellar and check the branding but the ones I've used are sort of neoprene-y , white with some stuff printed on them , cheap and decent for a small grow. But quite frankly if you are in a tent or room-in-a-room setup, a small ozone generator in the envelope room is a better long term investment. Superior odor control.
