Hey guys seeing as my first was a flop I started a new grew with some seeds thanks to Ottawagreen... So all props to hima for the seeds.. Here is the breakdown

Strain: Thunderpaws (hybrid) regular seeds thanks to ottawagreen seeds [emoji16]
Lights: cfl 460w mix spectrum of 340w 6400k + 120w 2700k
Medium: potting soil + vermiculite + perlite:
Containers: small seedling pots
Airflow: 2x pc fans
Grow space: 60cm*52cm*115cm
Temp and humidity sensor: none
Ph meter: none
Nutes: none so fare
Nutes on hand: wonder supranute plus 3:2:1 (22), atlantic ferts bio ocean (slow release), atlantic ferts all purpose (slow release), culterra multisol 3:1:6 (46) + trace elements...
Lighting schedule: 18/6

Not sure if i missed something out.. This grow i will do a 3 week vegs and then swap over to 12/12 to show sex or take clones ( if i can get all the stuff i need for cloning) and determine sex of plants that way..

Hope it goes better this time. Will add pics a bit later..

Monkey 2nd attempt: cfl+soil+thunderpaws

My first crop didn't die, they just turned out to be hermies which is not what i wanted: so i moved them outside and started a new grow..

Oh god at least you got all them free seeds [emoji20] im guessing the best thing i can do for y grow is just never open the door when its there night time to avoid getting hermies

Yes im making sure i have no light leaks this time, as i noticed my door hanging a bit causing some light to enter.. Never thought is would make such a difference but clearly it did.. So im a lot more "anal" about it so to speak.. Lol

As you can see i put a devider in the middle of the cabinet too so i can use the other space for cloning and flowering of the cloning...

What you guys think?
