Ok, so the rest of the grow room is a mess. Where the heck are the other pots? Under that box? (5 mins of back breaking labor later) Nope. Oh, look, they are under the heavy pile. How fun.
I do not recall the brand, but I think they are made by one company and others put their name on them. That one should be fine.Do you happen to know or remember what brand your moisture meter is??
I found one on amazon that looks the same but not totally sure.
Brand is Xlux
As far as the carbon filter goes can I leave tap water out for a day or so until the chlorine breaks down or is the carbon 100% necessary? My tap water PPM is usually at least 400+ but I’m not sure if that’s a big deal for an all Organic grow like this.This grow will be in a 2x4 tent with 2 Spider-Farmer 1000's. It's the smallest tent we have and we needed a second SF1000 to fill it out with light, now we have a pair.

We will be using 3 gal fabric pots with holes in the sides for the soil probe. I have seen many people that have trouble with their soil probes. If you have the 3-in-1 probe, it is likely defective. We use this one and have nothing but good things to say about it.
To amend your soil:
Fill the fabric pot 98% full with LUSH. You want the soil about a fingernail height below the lip of the pot. (unless you have long nails) Finger width.
Add the amendments according to directions. Get your hands in there and mix it for a good 5 minutes or more. Top to bottom at least three times. At the same time you are mixing, watch for things that should not be there. I've never seen anything, but I heard mice do happen, along with Fungus gnats (they come with the organics it seems)
You may want some D-Earth to spread a nice layer of. A full cup of clean sand is also fine but not really needed as that soil has more than enough.
Place the pots in the tent and water them. Let them sit for a week (watering correctly in the meantime) and then,
Germinate the seeds. When they have decently long taps, plant them in the pots.
Get a pencil and stick it in the soil to a depth 125% of the tap length so that the seed is just under the soil. Make sure the tap root is pointing down into the hole you made with the pencil. Gently water and start it running VEG mode.
We also use a basic carbon filter to clean our water. It may be considered safe by the local gov, we don't want to drink it. Why would we give it to our plants?
The filter does not change anything really. It just removes a lot of stuff that could possibly cause problems.
We will be doing another round of GDP's from ILGM. We will do a 1/3 harvest.
When the plants are just starting to turn milky, we take 1/3 of them. Then wait for maybe 10% amber and take another third. Then take the rest at 50% amber for the pillow lock. There are days when some extra inducement to rest is needed.
I've added some GDP pix from as past grow.
I hear a tent calling to me. (All replacement parts are here.)
Good question. Most people on city water do not need to let the water sit to evap the chlorine. There just isn't that much of it in there.As far as the carbon filter goes can I leave tap water out for a day or so until the chlorine breaks down or is the carbon 100% necessary?
