    Re: First time grower, Bloombox, what do you experts think?

    Hello All!

    First off, sorry for the lack of updates and that's why I stopped by...

    Out of seven plants, i ended up with about 3 oz. of White Widow and 4 oz. of White Castle.

    Smoke report, what I can say? The White Castle is a very nice head type high that energizes me and keeps me busy. My wife like that. The White Widow is much more of a couch lock type high for me anyway. Don't get me wrong, it's still heady but it's much more of a body type high than the other.

    Over all we're very pleased with the results, 7 plants, almost 7 oz.

    Now if I could just get these damn clones to do there thing!

    The rockwool clones lasted about 3 weeks before they finally died off. I bought daisy cloner and didn't have much luck with it the first time around, but this time things are looking way better. I hope to have some girls in veg in a day or two.

    Thanks to you all for your help and guidance, it was and is very much appreciated!

    The t-5's are something that came with the unit when i bought it. So yes, they're from bcnl.

    Hey Kruizin, Was actually going to ask you the same question, I just got my bloom box and it does not have the t5s on the bottom, was this an option you paid extra for? Also what kind of ph/ppm system did you use? I want to buy a trimeter but there aren't any electrical outlets in the box to plug things into!! any suggestions? I too am growing white widow in my box. Please stop by and give me any tips you can think of. Ill definitely be referring to your thread. thanks in advance.

    I bought a bloombox royale as opposed to the regular bloombox. The version I bought came with upgraded nutes and the t-5's. So yeah....it was an option I paid for although I didn't know I was gonna get them. I thought all I was getting was upgraded nutes and an extra supply of lights and such. There is a hole in the back of the flower side for any extra cords that you might have something useful for.

    I ran the box at a ph of 5.6-5.8 most of the time. The water was tap and was let to sit a day or two to get the chlorine out. It was a pain in the butt using the rockwool because I'm pretty sure that's why I had to adjust the ph on a daily basis. This time around I'm using hydroton (or whatever it's called) and that is ph neutral. No more ph problems. I just followed the chart that came with the manual for feeding and setting everything up.

    Good luck with your grow dude and take care!

    The hole in the back is a 2" diameter. After you insert the plastic insert, it's still 2" in diameter on the inside, but shrinks to about 1/2" on the outside of the box.

    Trust me, there is not much light leaking at all.
