Holy moly West, looks like you came up on a deal. Sounds hydro and I don't do that but many here do so keep checking peoples journals that run that and you will be up and running soon. You can choose hydro or soil or coco or hempy when you read up. You're almost there.

Wife’s seeds (caramelious autos) are 2 weeks in polished and peroxide wipe down next morning she put her 4 in so I get the tool shed it’s just as good as the other one . Insulated top to bottom (floor).
My seeds are 5 days today , put up 5 got ona the put in 3 more all came up. I’ve never dropped them in water or a napkin for the sprout. If there coming they come right out of the rockwool l no problem in the cloner. So I have 4 plants I just moved to the tent , turned the k5 down to 50% on ab&c withe 3 -1 hour intervals at 100% with the make shift supplemental lighting. The WWseeds were from ILGM .
High stoneotter and Angry Bird do y’all see much more I need for the start or am I getting carried away?

Hehe If you know how to run the equipment then run with it man. Keep in touch here. Like I said, I don't do hydro so I know nothing about the mechanics of it. You already have seedlings yes? Do you have a PH pen and PPM pen? You're going to need them to tell you how much you're feeding and PH is very important!

Yeah I’ve been thru several before I found the ones that last , I want the $250 digital read out coming soon, I hope. Have all the solvents for calibration. Hadn’t done soil myself so we’re even?

In these pics ( second set of photos )I just put 1 layer in the 4” basket clay pebbles then the Rockwool plant then totally covered it with the clay pebbles, this was how my very1st hydro grow started. See any problems with this way cause I normally pack it it’s rockwool with the pebbles on top!

The vivosun air pump might be too much it’s the 50watt a little noisy if you choke down on it . It supplies the troughs with 24”s of bubbles and plenty of oxygen for the roots
