Hello all, thanks for reading. I am looking forward to tapping the great knowledge base here at the 420mag, as this is my first grow. Im not looking for weight, i am looking for QUALITY first, as i am tired of paying medical prices for bud thats full of half developed seeds.

To sum up the grow, its a medium sized tv cabinet grow, currently with 3 or 4 cfl's. with an assisted passive intake/exhaust system that cant even keep up with the current heat (gotta leave the door open). Will address this when i goto a low wattage, low heat flowering bulb.

-Medium is 50% castings, 25% supersoil, and 25% perlite.
-Water, including the tank of the humidifier, is city tap water, ph'd to 6.5 with a tetra fish ph kit. adjusted with ph up/down. i add a capfull of superthrive to each 5 gallon bucket of water i ph.
-ferts. this is probably my weak point... im lazy and have been relying on home depot liquid ferts. early on in the grow, i was chasing root bound issues with fert use.... didnt really get a chance to develope a fert regiment yet...
-Plants are hopefully feminized, seed sprouted dream queen, and some mystery clones i received a couple days ago.

That being said, lets get to the pics! if you have any comments on any pictures, please let em flow!

some early failures due to using jiffy pots, and getting root bound.... high heat, and low humidity, and poor ventilation...

thank you cheesepuff, i turned the lights on new years day.... ive been casually reading up ever since... ive finally got some decent progress, so time to post!

my main problem, is searching forums for this seems kinda hard, seems theres a million reasons for leafs curling, including some that are natural!

Sirdank: sigh... i worried about that, guess the single-word, propernoun aint enough... ive seen that thread, and its a shame, but understandable. thanks man.

can an OP rename it "GC" or something family friendly?
