    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    ok so here are my clones froma fellow grower. theyre about 40 days in soil. been under a 250MH.

    this is the one that wouldnt do shit forever, and well it finally has!! it is definitely purple haze, or as i call it purple chunk funk. its a good stone.






    the new cuttings, they look a little rough, simply because i dont have a heat pad for them. i dont know the temp or rh in the dome. and its about 78* normally inmy room. and about 80* at the canopy level in the closet, so on the floor, or on top the DWC its still gonna be in the high 70s. and not enough rh. so these will be things to be fixed in the near future.


    and for the other clones, they are some type of cross between northern lights, kali mist, and purple haze. some one grew all three at the same time, we bought the weed, and found seeds, so were not sure of what the mix is exactly, but my buddy has flowered and cropped all his plants, and thats how i know the purple is the purple. but were still not sure aboout the other, as they are completly different.








    oh they are all just shy of 2' standing tall at about 20.5"

    And for my whole closet. After i crop the tron, i will be making one side veg the other flower. and i will use my 250w MH either to veg like 2 or 3 plants at one timeor just keep one or 2 mothers under it idk yet. well see.

    did your phototron come with instructions? i have heard that they were designed speciffically for growing mj, and when bought new, come with instructions...

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    I bought one about 10 years ago, and the instructions were pretty detailed, i mean you really had to keep an eye on those things, especially if you grew in the sphagnum(sp) moss that came with the unit, that and the 23 hour wet/1 hour dry cycle for watering...complex nutrient setup....much easier to just use soil and use it for a light box IMO

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    wassup weedy,

    i didn't even realize this journal was going. i thought it stalled or something.

    man thats cool. i always used to see these phototron things in the back of magazines. man its bigger than i thought, and those buds look diesel for flouro.

    hey look delish but not ready to me. do you have access to a microscope? be good if you did, or a loop or a high magnification glass. then you could judge the real way using trichs. getting close though.

    about your clones, I'd go spend 10 bucks and get a humidity dome with a tray insert that keeps the medium raised. this way you can leave a bunch of water in the bottom which will insure high RH without letting them sit in water. the temps sound good anyways. you want 70-80.

    man, just wanna say again i am impressed by the phototron. nice work brother. just satisfied a very old itch. . . it's surprising what you don't notice even when its right under your nose.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    wheelo - thanks man, yeah its still going. up until i crop anyways. yes i do have access to a magnifying glass. and i just looked yesterday and today, i checked like 5 different buds. some of the ones with the most red hairs, andsome of the top buds. most trichs are still clear/translucent. none are amber that i could find. and i definietly want the couchlock high, so im shooting for 70/30 or better yet 80/20 amber/milky. we shall see

    also, i have a humidity dome, it was just off for the pic. but yes i do need/want a new tray with the insert. and a taller dome. but thats in the future, im still just practicing. the clones are already starting roots.

    im having trouble with the DWC though, im thinking i may just take as many clones as possible off those 2 plants, and do it all in dirt. idk yet. we shall see.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    imo, the important things in dwc are:

    1)res temp
    2)ph
    3)nutes
    4)do (dissolved oxygen)

    the most common things that people do wrong are:

    1)not pay attention to temp at all. a 3 dollar thermometer will do the trick, an it is absolutely necessary because you have an intense light right next to it. keep it under 75*F if you can. 68* is the target.
    2)people misread meters, don't calibrate them right or often enough. don't pay enough attention.
    3)nutes. people run too hot, dont flush the res and start fresh every week or two. IMO beneficial bacteria and fungus are a must for me. healthy plants start with healthy roots.
    4)most people have sufficient bubbles in the res, but temperature is key. DO in the water varies inversely with temperature, so the hotter the water the harder it is for the roots to breathe. see #1.

    beneficial B&F will help alot with #2 and #3 because they make the nutes available at wider ranges.

    insulating the res with something like fiberglass would help keep it cooler.

    any of that give you any ideas? dwc can be nice and easy if you can change your res easily and completely. and put some good stuff in there, and monitor it.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    i honestly believe its because of the FF nutes. i think i will go to AN, or dutch masters next. it was my first shot at hydro and its still going now.

    but yeah
    1. i check res temp multiple times daily swap out 2 liters as needed. its cooled off around here about 75-80* temp in the closet as opposed to 80-90*. now my res stays around 77* and i drop it to around 72* its about the best i can do with the 4 2 liters i use.
    2. i did misread my ppm meter. im trying to fix that now.
    3. FF nutes in soil A++. in hydro D-. for me anyways. and i ran light as hell from misreading my ppm meter, i cant afford Benes right now. i wish i could though. i want some hygrozyme.
    4.the temp should be good. the airstones should be good. oxygen shouldnt be the problem.

    yes i need to insluate. but ill do that when i can. so idk whats your opinion?/

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    it seems like root rot. theyre extremly dark, loosing mass, and just look bad in general. the new roots, which it has started a lot of new roots, are white as can be. the roots arent slimy, just real soft.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    The two best additives, are Hydrogaurd and Hygrozime. The hydrogaurd is simply a set of aerobic bacteria that displace harmful bacteria and fungus. The hygrozime is the only enzyme product that is sterile, that is it does not have the risk of adding unwanted bacteria that can really mess up your system. It takes any dead plant matter and breaks it down into compounds that can be used by the plant. In other words, if root rot starts, this will remove the material that would breed bad bacteria and fungus and will prevent it from spreading... it know its expensive, but it's worth it! The hydrogaurd is cheaper. Other then that, keep the temp as cool as you can and you should do well.
