Hey all - New to the site and first indoor DWC grow. Here's the plan. Please weigh in with feedback!!

Space - 3' x 3' x 7' Lighthouse Hydro heavy duty tent,

Exhaust/filtration - virgin carbon filter and 6" inline fan w/ variable fan controller
Room temp - 72F-76F
Air movement - desktop fan
Media - Hydroton
Hydro system - Black Widow DWC hydro kit with 4-line pump, tubing and spider bubblers
Nutrients - Flora micro, Flora gro, Flora bloom
Supplements - Hydroguard
PH control - yes
PPM monitored - yes
Water used - RO PH adjusted
Northern Lights Feminized
Type - Afghani BL/Indica
Flowering 7-9 weeks
Light 24/0 during veg; 12/12 flower
During veg keep PH at 5.7 - 5.9; in flower 5.9 - 6.1 for a little more access to P&K
Maintain RH @ 50% for the Veg; 40% for flower

During seedling phase will use a ml/L of each nute. Aim for 300ppm.

Top after the third node. Then again - and again.

Target water temp below 65 degrees for root health - with just a smidge of Hydroguard.

Res changes about every 4 weeks.

In veg run 15ml grow, 10ml micro , and 5ml bloom (per 5gallons of water).

Veg day 2

Decided to count start of veg from day last sprout cleared rockwool.

Not much change in way of growth in last two days. Feeder leaves are starting to curl under but no growth in fan leaves nor any sign of second set of fan leaves starting to present. Assume this is because energy is going into root growth. Please let me know if I'm missing something.

594ppm. 75 degrees in tent. 37% rh. 5.7 ph. added 1g h2o to tub (w nutes/root stimulator) due to evaporation.

Veg Day 4

Still not much in the way of new growth. How long usually to see second set of fan leaves start?



Hope all is well in your world.

Is this grow still alive?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

If you need any help with posting photos, please read our Photo Gallery Tutorial.

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.

Sending you lots of love and positive energy.
