    This would be my second grow in my closet which was recently upgraded with additional 50W 2700K 95+CRI LED lighting which makes 100w total in 20"x40" place. Now I have complete spectrum of 2700K, 4500k and 6500K where 2700K makes one half of light. Previous grow wasn't much but it was an excellent learning experience. Well this one will be to, let's just find out what I've learned so far.

    To begin with I have one Dinafem Moby Dick seedlin about two inches big, and waiting for Dinafem Shark Attack to popp. I also have some beans on the way:

    Dutch Passion:
    . Eforia
    . Brainstorm

    Sensi Seeds:
    Indoor Mix (25 regular seeds)

    Sweet Seeds:
    Red Poison Auto

    Dinafem:
    Critical+ 2.0 Auto

    I've been thinking of growing four plants in my closet but will probably stick to two and train the hell out of them.

    Shark Attack showed up :D

    Moby Dick is doing great! The seedling is one week old and is already pushing out second set of fan leaves which are three fingered. It's about 10" away from the lights and seems to be liking it :D

  3. looking good, next grow id definitely recommend painting the inside of your growbox flat-white. Get as much out of your lights as you can, your buds will thankyou ;)

  4. Thanks bro. I've been a bit lazy I know. Should have done that between the grows. On the other hand, I've found some perfect silver foil in the company where I work which is really tough since it's used fo packing metal parts. Since I have night shift this week, I'll try to " borrow" some. Also need to mount one intake and one outtake fan on the sides of the closet. Intake in the grow compartment and outtake above lighting compartment to achive constant 23-24 deg C with lights on an off.

  5. Today I added some green pest controllers :

    Saracenia

    Dionaea
    WP_20140922_003.jpg

    Drosera
    WP_20140922_004.jpg
    Three of them are flesh eating plants. Since I had some fungus gnats problems last run I thought that couldn't hurt. I'll be also getting some nematodes in case of fungus gnats problems.

    Shark Attack has shown first set of fan leaves and Moby Dick is growing third node.

    Also put one Critical+ on wet paper towel and one of the bag seeds I used for previous run.

    Just received email from Dinafem seed store. My Euforia, Brainstorm, Sensi Indoor Mix and Critical+ 2.0 Auto seeds are on the way.

    I've got a feeling it's gonna get crowdy inthere :D

  7. Thanks bro!

    Just noticed today, Moby Dick is already getting that distinctive red colour :D

    The first Shark Attack seed I put on paper towel didn't pop so u put another one down which sprouted. The thing is those seeds are at least two years old and haven't been stored properly. So I thought what the heck, took tweezers and pressed that bean lightly 'till outer shell cracked open just a bit. Today it's showing tail. So looks like there's gonna be two SA one MD and one C+. Beans on the way will have to wait in the fridge. Well, I might pop one of those autos till these fems are ready to flower since I decided I'll try myself at mainline technique with all four plants. Let's see how things turn out in next few weeks.

    Happy farmin'

  9. Forgot about some details. Soil I'm using is the same one azs in the first run but this time mixed with 30% of worm casting compost. Pots are 3gal I guess. Probably won't up pot since the space is very limited so I'll just pray those bitches don't get root bound. I'll also be using some worm castings teas.

    Also lifted everything closer to the lights. In the beginning they will see pretty much 4oooK and 6500k light and later on complete colour spectrum.

    That Critical+ just wont pop. It was a single seed :( Anyways I put Dutch Passions' Euforia on paper towel. Now we wait again. So all four of them will be about four weeks apart.
     
  11. So, been away for three days and when I came home found quiet a pleasant surprise :D

    The second SA showed up so did that bag seed.

    WP_20140929_002.jpg

    WP_20140929_004.jpg

    SA#1 grew a bit too

    WP_20140929_001.jpg

    Not to talk about that MD. She's about to explode. But not everything looks so flush. I seem to be running into some kind of deficiency :( Has anyone got any idea what my girl seems to be lacking of? She's two weeks from pop and already unhappy :S

  12. Small update.

    MD was ready for a light manicure since she was shooting 6th node so I decided to start her cutting for mainlining.

    WP_20141002_003.jpg

    WP_20141002_001.jpg

    After manicure:

    WP_20141002_008.jpg

    SA#1 is also showing some progress but not as much as I wish. SA#2 is taking off really slow:

    WP_20141002_004.jpg

    WP_20141002_005.jpg

    Both MD and SA#1 got fed with tea today, now let's see if they show any obvious progress in growth .

    That Dutch Passion Euforia also broke the soil.

  17. Weekly update. Yes, I know those veg photos are borin but I just cant help myself.

    Those were taken on Friday after I fed my girls some tea:

    WP_20141010_005.jpg

    WP_20141010_006.jpg

    Same order as always: MD, SA#1, SA#2, Bag seed, Euforia. Alls are doing great except for the SA#2. It's obviously a runt so that bag seed seedling is taking its place when ready for transplant.
     
  18. Those were taken today after cutting, fimming them:

    I like the pest controllers. Do you find them effective?

  20. Cant tell yet. There are some little flies sticked to Drosera, fruit flies I'd say. But haven't got any other pests by now. Fingers crossed. I also have those yellow stickies and Neem oil just in case. Time will show. Those plants are still alive so they must be eating something considering I'm giving them water only.


    Keep it green!
