    Re: A 12/12 from seed question

    the airflow question has really got me stumped...even if i build a box and cut vent slots or holes, wont that produce light leaks?

    Have to use a 90 elbow or you can get dryer vent things that work too.

    ok sounds like a plan, I believe i have found a suitable space for the dark period, although this could all be for nothing if the one seed i have doesnt pop soon..

    You build what's called "light traps".
    You take a box bigger than the hole in the wall. Inside this box you build shelves. One shelf goes from one side to about 2/3ds all the way across. the second sheld starts on the opposite wall and goes 2/3rds across the opposite way. See diagram. The idea is that while air flows around corners...light doesn't.

    well the seed never sprouted, so I guess I'll have to just wait until after I move. Thanks for all the help any way.

    well, new development...THE SEED SPROUTED!! so now its back to figuring out the best place to manipulate the light...If I let the seed go this first week on regular daylight schedule then change to 12/12 will I be able to harvest anything by the 2nd or 3rd week in july?

    well i built a few light traps, and the plant is in for its first night of 12/12. first set of bladed leaves are not fully developed yet, but its been cooler than normal here and i think that my have something to do with it... I noticed that the seed had sprouted on Sunday(5/11)

    the plant is in MG potting soil that says the plant will be fed for 90 days, will i have to drastically supplement any nutes to that soil?

    No. Maybe calcium or magnesium, but it should be just fine until flower.

    Re: A 12/12 from seed question

    cool, it seems to have grown a lot in a little under a week. the plant is on day 3 of 12/12. I let it run the natural outdoor light cycle for about 2 days, then went to 12/12. we shall see what happens. any chance of being able to harvest anything by mid july?

    figure about this time line under 12/12 from seed with a indica dom strain. about 3-7 days seed to sprout from germ. about 3 weeks more to detirmine sex, from there about 8 weeks to finish flowering.a total of 82 days cycle, I had a sative dom strain , she was still flowering at day 164 from seed. good smoke though, so worth the extra time.

    Re: A 12/12 from seed question

    the time i have to wait however is limited. this grow was to be purely educational, as to how the plant grows and lives because i am moving to cali in mid july. However since i now have a sprout that i didnt think i was going to have, i'd like to be able to bring something with me, even if its not all that it should have been potency wise...the plant is a bagseed that i have no idea of its traits, except fo the smoke which was actually very good. Any way to speed the flowering process faster than just 12/12 from seed?

    another question is, can i move a flowering plant across the country in a car, without putting so much stress on it that it herms or dies?

    I wouldn't reccomend moving it cross country. You han change the lighting to speed it up a bit, but you will lose quantity.
