Hello fellow friends of raising Mary Jane. This is my first shot at growing indoors. Background: I started last year by planting a seed I found in a bag outside in my vegetable garden. She grew like a monster. After she hit 3 feet tall I bent the stock so it grew sideways and every branch turned into a top. The plant was harvested in late September and she yielded a pound of very sweet and potent smoke. It smelled very fruity like mangos and came out tasting sweet, very stony. Here is a few pics of the plant.


And another pic



So after I harvested this plant I figured I would try my hand at indoor since the season for outdoor growing was over.
I bought a grow tent 4x4 and a HPS 1000 watt light with cooled hood. Bought 5 clones from local medicinal marijuana coop 1 grape ape and 4 purple urkle's. Two days later my plants were turning bright vivid yellow. They were dying I started to panic since I was watching 100 bucks of clones being choked out!! I researched and found many had problems with grow tents that were lined with white plastic or PVC. I quickly tore the tent down and kept plants under the light with only the frame of the tent intact. 4 days later the plants started to spring back to life and now almost all signs of the dreaded fluorescent yellow had diminished.
I have since did a frugal build of the grow room with 1/4 inch sheet rock and lined the inside with mylar. Bought 1 1/2" x 8 ft lengths of pine wood for the studs and built it about 2 hours with a friend. Have one inline fan cooling the hood and one small fan for air movement. The plants have started to take off now. I also planted 3 seeds with unknown strain and they are growing faster than my clones. Here are some pics of the room built in garage and some of the plants inside ,



notice the seedlings that have been growing for two weeks are very wide thick leaves, anyone have any idea what strain this odd looking plant is?



All for now more to come.... Comments advise would be appreciated, thanks guys.

I am running a 1000w hps with an enclosed hood vented in a 4x4 room in the garage.
The soil is MG soil, perlite, worm castings,wood ash. Largest amounts listed first.
Planted in 3 gallon buckets I have
1 Grape ape clone
2 purple urkle clones
4 from unknown seeds
My humidity is running around 40%
My temps are around 75 to 80 near ground and 85 to 90 2 ft from light.
I have one fan blowing down from upper rear wall that has about a foot gap by length of room for added venting.

X,
Nice recovery from a rocky start. Might just be the photos but your big plant looks like it is showing signs of low nitrogen. Are you using nutes? Best of luck.

If and when you give em nutes be careful MG soil has built in time release nutes. Try nutes at maybe 1/4 the recommended amount to be on the safe side.

Think I'll join you on this journey, if you don't mind.
Looks good so far. Love your grow room. :surf:

As always I appreciate all replys and the tips that I might be low on nitrogen , question how can I increase nitrogen.
Thanks again viewers.:thanks:

Weekly update and I havent noticed any decent growth. Infact the yellowing is really hitting the purple urkle clones hard. The grape ape clone has yellow just on the very tips of the leaves. Any suggestions?

I would use some veg nutes. They usually contain nitrogen and should get those babies back up to par. Have you been feeding them at all?> If so how much and of what? Good luck looking good!

Hi Buddy,
You may want to flower now, otherwise they will be growing in to the ceiling.
They will double or triple their hight in flower.:439:

Nice setup. :ganjamon:
