    My perpetual grow journal

    Since I'm coming to end of my first grow. I might as well start a journal of everything I'm doing from here on out. I'm new to forums and don't use social media. So if I'm doing something wrong, please let me know. I'll do my best to change my habits.

    13.5’ x 14' grow room 6" can fan w/ipower carbon filter
    My current equipment is
    2 600 watt hps
    1 250 watt hps
    2 150 watt hps (built into one unit)
    4 2' flourescent lights for clones and seedlings
    Using 2 4'x4'x7' for flower but want to separate the room and ditch the tents
    3 air pumps w/8way splitters
    Various fans and inlines

    Growing in dwc with rockwool cubes, 5 gallon buckets for flower 3.5 for veg. I run Canna nutes, full line with boost.
    keep my veg between 5.65 - 5.8
    Week 1-6 between 5.8 - 6.0
    Week 6+ 6.0 and above

    Tent one has three plants 2 at 9 weeks and 1 at 8
    tent two has three plants at 2 weeks
    Six more ready to flower in veg area
    Eighteen clones for a SoG after they veg for a few weeks

    wow those are looking good Rosetta , I think you have the right Idea . I grow in soil but I have 6 plants in bloom when they hit 5 weeks I put the next 6 beside them in bloom room so I figure when the bloom plants are done I will have a 3 week head start on next run, Getting the timing down is tough sometimes but if you stick with it you should be ok

      Thanks ojh! Yeah I wanted to get the second run started sooner but you know......I didn't hahaha. Now unfortunately I'll have three going at once. I'll manage though. Here's a picture of the SoG reservoir, they're 12 gallon with three inch pots

          thats going to be cool I posted a picture so you could see how i did it , You can see the double rows ,I have a light mover and leds so when the hps isn't right over them they look red lol

          I have a 6x8 tent with a zipper that wont work so I made it into the veg room and a auto room then I have my bloom room separate it can be a juggling act sometimes

                  Chopping down the BC pinewarp x bubblegummer this Friday! I like the color change that's happened the last week or so. Maybe the pineapple Express x black diesel crosses will be ready in a week or two.

                        Started my first harvest 🤘only got through half the plant. That is quite the process, time consuming. All I've read about it and the several warnings I got from my friend still didn't prepare me for it. Very rewarding though!

                            Drying is definitely an art, but it's fun, too. The hygrometers that Nebula recommends are indispensible for me:
                            https://www.amazon.com/Caliber-Digit...rds=hygrometer

                            You will be able to feel the buds re-distribute their moisture once you put them in jars. As I'm trying to handle the buds as minimally as possible, I don't like taking them in and out of jars, unless the RH is super high, so I do this;

                            During the first two weeks after jarring, I keep the jar lid partially open to maintain the right RH and let them continue to dry slowly. Depending on what the RH is inside the jar, the lid's sometimes half open or 1/3, and as they get dryer, I will just leave the lid cracked open.

                            I also very gently move them around once a day with a thin metal utensil. This works for me to slowly bring the RH down inside the jar to around 62%. I've never had any mold or problems doing it this way.

                            When you say open, you mean the lid is only screwed on half, third, or whatever your desired amount air flow is?

                            As far as lids go....do you guys use the metal lid with the separate ring or the plastic lids used for pickles and such. I have plenty of jars from my vegetable canning/pickling but I will have to pick up some lids.

                            Alltatup thanks for the method, I like hearing how others do it.

                            Stoned, I will balance the back of the lid, opened all the way, against the wall behind it, so I can adjust how much air flows into the jar. Sometimes I turn the lid upside down and balance it on the lip of the jar.

                            My jars all have one-piece lids.
