    Dexter4Morgan's Kill Room - The LED Revolution Continues Grow

    Hello everyone

    I'm Dexter4Morgan. You may wonder whats up with the name. Dexter is one of my favorite shows, when he kills people he calls the area his Kill Room. The 4 in my name is supposed to be a knife since he cuts people up LOL.

    I'm a Medical Card Holder, with a prescription from a doctor to grow cannabis for my Medical Conditions.

    First time ever growing

    I would like to give a huge THANK YOU TO DocBud, Pitviper and everyone else for answering my questions and helping me to get to this point.

    STRAINS: LA Confidential (4), Grand Daddy Purps (3), Purple Train Wreck x Sour Diesel (3), Venus Flytrap from seed (2)

    LIGHTS: 300W LED Lights

    MEDIUM: Fox Farms Ocean Forrest 75% pearlite 25%

    POT SIZE: 10 gal

    # OF PLANTS: 12

    GROW AREA: Basement Veg Room 8 x 10 x 7 roughly, Flower Room 7.5 x 10 x 7. Work area/Nursery 6 x 10 x 7


    FERTILIZER'S: Dynamite Red Bottle fertilizer, OC+, Bio-Tone Starter Plus, Earth Tone Garden Tone, IRonite, Green Fuse Bloom, molasses during veg and Sucanat during flower, Maxicrop Liquid Seaweed, ZHO for clones seeds and whatever else I decide

    Using Rain Water exclusively right now

    My basement had a room already built with a door on it. So I cleared it and divided it into 3 rooms. A work/storage area, veg room and flower room

    Mylar on the walls

    Work area





    IF you want to keep your area clean this is the best hand vac around. It beat the $175 Dyson and some other dildo looking one in a test by Popular Mechanics. Search for the comparison video its great


    yeah I went a little nuts with the DM but when its one cent a container or free I got all I could. That is just one side of the TV cart LOL

    3 of the LA Cons went in to the containers on 12-13

    Pics from 12-16

    I have since installed a cheap shop light so i can take pics. I turn it on before lights go out take pics for 5 minutes then its dark time

    The LA Con's are showing a little burn on the tips of some leaves. I believe this is from premixing the soil then having to let it sit for about 3 weeks before I put them in it. The guy I got the clones from said they would be rooted and ready. Had to wait past the day he promised them then I felt they were not ready for the pots yet.

    I planted 2 Feminized Venus Flytraps seeds from Nirvana on 12-13 they cracked with 24 hours of soaking in water. But I put them in a dome with a heat pad underneath and cooked them.

    So I tried 2 more on 12-24. Within 3 days they broke ground. One was soaked in rainwater and one in rainwater and seaweed (1 T to a gallon)

    One of the LA Con clones was a runt and the guy threw it as freebie. It has been a slow grower. I figure it if has problems and I can save it I learn how to save a plant the only way to learn is to do it so letting it live teaches me more than yanking it and starting another.

    Please feel free to ask questions, comments or add advice insight.

    Lights are 18/6 right now.

    Going to let the plants get about 24 inches tall then flip to 12/12.

    2 LA Con's have been LSTed

    the Grand Daddy Purps seem to be very slow growing anyone know anything about their growing habits ?

    Some how missed the seedling pics

    Venus Flytrap Under a T5 4 bulb setup and heat mat below to start with, sprouted within 3 days

    put them under the LED's (12-30) 2 days after they broke ground




    One funny part about this as my first grow. I can't wait until the lights come back on so I can go see how they are doing.

    Dedication to my ladies ? Yes last night at 2 in the morning drunk I'm collecting rain water for them LOL

    wow, I love your setup Dexter!



    I like everything about it. Your planning and design, framing and drywall, choice of grow gear, organization, and grow method.

    I love your grow room

    My only suggestion is to watch out for those 10gal pots staying wet too long under LED lights. One of the things I love about LED lights is that they help to decrease watering frequency, but I'm concerned about using 5gal pots for soil grows, so the 10gal pots may stay wet too long.

    Going up on the perlite to 50% when using big pots will compensate for that when growing with LED lights, but it dilutes the nutrient package of the mix, so will probably need a little more nute supplementation.

    You may be OK with the 30%, but watch for compacted and soggy soil at the bottom.

    I'm going to read through again, cause I really like your setup, and your pics and journal style too

    best wishes for a good New Year and a good harvest

    p.s. love those hunter orange stakes!!!

    The "walls" are that Poly Shield insulation you can see it on the walls of the work area. Then mylar over that.

    The bottom of the pots have 96 ounces (volume) of straight pearlite in the bottom about 2 inches deep. I did not want any chance of bugs getting up in there.

    Those orange stakes are the fiberglass ones people put in their yards. i have used those stupid green bamboo stakes in the yard and I hate them.

    Thank you for the kind words and wealth of knowledge
