Boyt's First Closet Grow


New Member
Hey everyone this is my first time doing a grow journal or growing anything for that matter so easy on the criticism. I wanted to keep this first grow as cheap as possible just to get the hang of things before I really invest some money into this so my setup is pretty sub par and the room is really make shift but I've decided just to dive right in and try.

-5 x CFL's 6500K
-2 x "Grow lights" (from home depot said to be 2700k so i assume it should work, also possiblly getting more when i move to flower)
-Scott's Premium Soil (I've heard many mixed reviews about this but decided to give it a try)
-4 x 5 gal buckets
-4 x California Special Seeds
-Fan with ice pack in front to exhaust and keep the over temperature down a little bit

Day 1 - Germination

I started off by doing the paper towel germination and it worked perfect for me. All 4 seeds germinated in about 24 hours.

Day 2 - Planted the seeds into smaller containers before I transfer them into the 5 gallon buckets.

Day 4 - This is where I am now. My lights are on a 20/4 ratio which I will slowly move down until I eventually reach 12/12 for flower.

I hope these pictures work.

All 4 of them.

Ha yeah they are. I'll take a full picture of the room next time I post pictures of them. This damn signature wont go through though. I go to edit signature and save it and then it never shows up. And yes "show signature" is checked.
