I'm starting my first grow ever in a 4x4 tent thats 6.5 ft tall
:roorrip:
Set-up:
Light: 600W hps
Soil: Fox Farm Ocean Forest
Nutes: Blue Planet Nutrients
Fan: 424cfm w/ carbon filter


I want to FIM it and use supplementary CO2, Any tips on either of these two things?
Thanks, I hope you hop on for the ride:rasta:

probably 3 in diameter 1-2ft long

I also heard this trick to put a big sponge in the bottom of the bucket with an airtube in it and it works as a lung, oxygenating the soil, the results i saw from this looked unreal!

Go with a 1000watt light!
Im gonna have to wait to upgrade to a 1000W

So how often should i feed my plants, and what do I do? Do I just mix it in a container following the box instructions, and pour it onto my soil once a week and water in-between?

what size pots are you using? your plants would flower best in 5 gallon pots. to know when to water your plants with a nutrient mixture you should lift up your pots and feel if they are heavy with water or are light and require more nutrient mixture. your soil already has some nutrients in it, i would be conservative starting your nutrient with a 1/4 recommended dosage when your plants have 5 nodes and are 5 inches tall. always shake and add your nutrients to water not each other. i feed nutrients every time i water. can you show us some photographs of your plants and grow area?

here is everything you should need to know to post full size photographs in your journal
