Well back at it. But this time it will be hydro and indoors.
Lets say that my last attempt at growing outdoors was a lost cause dam thiefs.[ May the fleas of a thousand coyotes infest there crotch's]

Went to the cheech and chong concert the next day dropped a hand full of seeds in some paper towls and started designing my new grow closet.
materials list
converted closet 40"x"6'x5' because of stand back problems
Seeds kush something? dense sticky pungent stoney buds
262 sump pump w/ 1 2 gph emmiter per plant 3 minutes every 2 hours 15 gal res. reciurt circuit for testing and mixing
intermatic 40 position timer for nutes
2 hose airpump w/ 2 8" airstones continues run
plastic bins w 6 1 gal pots w/50% hydrotons, 35% pearalite, 15 % clay chips
the bins are set up for to drain
4 f32t8 w 6500k CRI 85 with parabolic reflectos top sides and ends. will be adding another
set on the sides as needed have 12,000 lumens right now but i can and will double the the amount. to be changed to 65-35 red to blue at flower time.
burlinton 24 hour timer for lights
20" fan intake under house and venting into crawl space.
meters ph ,tds, thermometer
nutes clonex 2 caps,4 caps grow big,1/2 cap hydrazine in ten gals h2o
p/u tiger bloom. the rest of nutes will buy later no cash
started with 33 seedlings gave the rest away kept 18 and 2 clones
as soon as they where transplanted to the pots they sot up like a rocket.
the clones the first day i got them the next they where dying.
had a few wild swing with the ph had to drain out.
well they are one month old and have leafs every where at the base of the first leafs they are starting to branch i will be trimming them for a sea of green effect.
into it one month. have 18 and 2 semidead clones.
the ladies are lookig real good they have huge leafs and busting with these green shoots they grow about 1" a nite
the stems u see them swell then they split and thicken.
foliar feed once a day in the am .with couple of drops clonex.a few drops hydrazine.3 drops grow big 2 drops soap as suffactent to brake water tension in 1 qt of distilled water.
want to let them grow to about 18"-24 or dec 25 on this day i change the time to 12/12 and nutes

have pictures are in my photo gallery could not inport here but check them out starting to do a test trim on some of the biggest ones. would like to end up with just one big cola de borrego.figuered a way of increasing the actual rooting area these re going to get holes cut in the lower side to allow the roots excape. By filling the bottom of the box with more medium and just seating the pots on top with enoff medium to cover the holes. that will increase total rooting area by almost double. what do you think want short cycles of three months start to finish can it be done?

Up date been a long time
the back was out again can not type when that happens.
Still had 18 females out of 18 seedlings not to bad till now had to get rid of one that was just not doing any thing need the space so out it goes.
14 days into 12/12 cycle a few are really starting to show signs of buds at the ends of the branch's
also got rid of the drippers and went to ebb and flow so simple.
flushed every thing out before hooking up my system just used water and flushed a few times. then the hook up Why it took me so long to go this way I don't know.
right now it comes on 4 times a day is that to much they come up to 3/4 on the pots.
Started LST TRAINING in one light cycle they are already turnig up also thinned the canopy out for better coverage. found a great way of training them I am using little weights on # 14 solid wire make s hoops and hang them that way no strings just adjust the weights I am a fishing junky have weights. started with string it looked like a spider web looks a lot better
Going thru one of my out buildings and found a wall pack with 150 watt high pressure sodium set up lamp is broken 25 $ at home depot sweet just in time already made reflector for it with mounting base for the starter for it going to open the middle to run the hps on a track down the middle will move it manualy a couple of times a night till i can rig a auto track or some thing.
just need parts.
Will try to post later tonight with pictures.
I have about three phenol types I think from the way they are growing I have one that i really like and want to take clones from it because of all the plants in the batch right now It is already pumping little buds with white hairs She is the early bloomer " might be autoflower?" wich is a trait I would like to have in my plants.
lot of things going on right now.
later

That sucks man, stupid thieves. Lookin forward to following this grow and some pics. 3 months start to finish could only be done with a clone as far as I know, and even for a clone that is a pretty short amount of veg time.

12/21 The winter solictis also turned into black monday had not had any males till now 2 males the biggest of course " My early flower turned hermie"
she had to be put out my misery. in one failed swoop have lots of room.
Well more room more nutes more = more buds?
Since I put the high pressure sodium light in you can see the formation of little flowers the growth rate seem to bee alot fast now.
Check the girls at lights on and spotted the male pulled him out and nothing else came back before going to bed and found the hermie .
4 am found another male how many more? Nervious doing bed check before light out it's been a long nite. time to medicate and listen to the rain fall finally quite no cars on the road yet.

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALLLLLLL
