o.k. i've finally got my shit together for this. i had to find a place to do this as my house is a place of business and for obvious reasons it is not a good place to grow herbs. so, just to keep things as cheap and simple as possible, i have started 16 cuttings. 8 hempstar(shorty indica) and 8 ak-47(shorty sativaXindica). they are in 2gal pots(extruded plastic) and the medium is No#4 sunshine mix (peat, perlite, sand.) which is available everywhere. i am using a 1000 watt halide horizontally mounted with a shade. for flowering i'll add a 600 watt sodium. i have put a drip feed watering system in place with 4gph emitters. i am using a plastic fifty gallon drum for a rez. the system is driven by a good quality pump. i'm using general hydro maxigro and maxibloom powders as my main nutrient source as they are cheap, clean, and readily available. there are plenty of good off the shelf organic ferts that will also work . but for my purposes the gh is at hand. i am adding "liquid gold" for fulvic and "floralicious" for humic acids. every rez also gets a dose of potassium silicate.i will use liquid and powdered "koolbloom" as bud enhancers.pictures of the whole thing from clone to day six will follow as soon as i find a 'puter with a FACTORY installed usb as for some reason the fuji camera software dosn't accept the ones in my frankenputer.
