    ok so i mixed my soil today.



    the layer of perlite.



    and the layer of just top soil.



    i have 10 seeds in germination 6 have sprouted taproots, so im gonna wait until theyre abut a 1/4" or a little bigger and put them in there. should be another day or so. just enough time to test the soil, and buy a thermometer.

    Which way did you decide to germinate them?

    thanks. yeah im new to the site, and ive been around growing multiple times, but this is my first real grow, so i like the help. no to mention my buddy has grown outdoors for years, and indoors for about 3 or 4 now. so hes alot of help.

    has anyone heard of hyponex soil? its what i bought seemed better then MG since im trying to steer away from those products.

    Greets Weedy!!

    Congrats on your tron grow. One thing you need to consider when using a tron is flushing. If you grow directly in the tray, you'll need to water with H2O only for at least two weeks before harvest and even then, it won't be a good as a true flush would be. I've tried soil grown weed that was harvested unflushed and it was not pleasant, with lots of crackles, pops and a funny taste.

    Personally, I think it's better to use a pot that's close in diameter to your bottom tray, perhaps an few inches taller. This way you can remove the plant and flush. Trons actually have screws in the top so you can pop the top right off. I removed the screws in the top of my tron and never put them back in.

    Another advantage is that you can start with smaller pots and work your way up. You could even sex them out in the smaller pots before you move the lady into a larger pot for flowering. I think one female is most appropriate for a tron. There's really not enough light or room for any more than one plant. I can't see any advantage to growing more that one in there, except maybe for variety. You may sacrifice a little yield by growing more than one, unless you prudently trim and bend (you're gonna be doing that anyway).

    Those are just few of my random tron thoughts. Hope they might be of some assistance to you and good luck!!

    thanks man i appreciate the comment. i will definetly keep that in mind next time. i already have the seeds in the soil now. i guess well see what happens. my next grow will probably be with pots. also you grow with a tron? how do you have your airflow set up? along with the carbon filter. thanks. any input would be appreciated.

    I only use my old tron for seedlings, cloning and some very initial vegging. I did flower out a male in it recently so I didn't need to worry about flushing that. I was just collecting pollen.

    A couple of CFL's on a splitter would be good but it will limit your already limited height. The xtra light might make up for that, in terms of denser buds. I've seen a few peeps stick a LED panel in the top but not sure how much good that will do ya..

    A couple of PC case fans should work well for venting the unit. You can easily find the diagram for powering them with a wall-wart (cell phone charger and such). No idea on the filter. I don't use 'em.

    Here's a couple of tron grows all journaled up you might want to check out..
