Hi Everyone, this will be my second grow. I will be using soil this time for a more organic grow.

No changes in the grow room tents from the last grow except for the size of the fabric pots.

Tents: Two 5'x5' from Apollo horticulture
Veg Tent Lights: Two T5 lamps with four 54W 4' bulbs each (Bulbs in each housing - 6500K, Actinic 460nm, Eye Hortilux PowerVeg, 6500K)
Flower Tent Lights: Perfect Sun 1000
Fabric Pot Size: 7.5 gallon x 4
Air Pot Size: 3 gallon x 1
Medium: Roots Organic Original, Promix Vegetable and Herb, Kind Soil, and Earthworm castings from Creekside Worm Farm
Nutrients: Cal Mag Plus - 1 drop added to RO water (5.8 PH) to soak rockwool
Auto Strains: Girl Scout Cookies (x 2), Bubblegum, Critical 47, Big Blue Cheese

I varied the soil mixture for each pot. The measurements may be off by 1/2 gallon or so since I was guesstimating. The Air Pot has 1/3 Kind soil at the bottom, 1/3 Promix in the middle, and 1/3 Roots Organic mixed with 2 cups of earthworm castings.



I popped all of the seeds using the paper towel method with RO water (PH 5.8). I placed them in individual ziplock bags, put all of them into a paper bag, and then placed them in my garage for 3 days. Today is day 1 in soil.

Day 1: Before placing the seedlings into the soil, I watered it with tap water that has 170ppm and 7.4 PH. I was thinking about using RO water, but the PH comes out higher around 7.8.

Day 2: Four out of five seedlings are reaching for the T5s. The GSC#2 had the smallest tap root so I am thinking it just needs more time. It's the only one not showing above the soil. The Bubble Gum and GSC #2 seedlings are the only two I placed in a 1.5" rockwool cube. The rest went straight to soil. No watering today.
Spent some time trying to dial in temp/humidity. Had to bring in the humidifier to keep the humidity above 50%.

Looking good so far man, really like your setup. That PS1000 is going to kill it! Good luck
Thanks. Yeah man. That PS1000 is no joke. I have to try to keep the plants low and bushy this time with some lst. I had a tall jungle in my last grow. :3:

I hate it when everything doesn't go according to plan. I'd say after 10 days I doubt that one will pop up. The rest look good very nice shade of green.

I know right. I will keep taking care of it for a few more days and then pull her out.
