    150w HPS Hydro Grow

    Well I've started a grow. Btw I'm not new here just forgot my account. Anyways, as I'm sure you can see i have a grow box. I literally just built it tonight. It's a little rough as you can see with the light leaks etc. But all that will be sealed. My plant is actual still in the process of sprouting. Germinated 24hrs ago and placed in soil. Its supposedly some kind of "hulk" strain. Not sure if it's indica/sativa. Guess I'll find out soon. But as far as specs go I've got: Sun System 150w HPS, General Hydroponics system w/ clay pebbles, 1.5'×1.5'×4' grow box. Right now my light is around 30" from the top of my bucket but my thermometer is still reading 82ºF. Is this too warm for a seedling or a plant in general? Any other pointers or tips appreciated. Will have pics of plant as soon as "she" sprouts. Thanks and cheers!

    Besides the intake and exhaust fan issue I see one more. There is light leak where your light is. In flowering any light leaks when its in the dark cycle will cause you a headache. I recommend to toss a box of sorts there as well, you will need holes in there as well, as it will get hot.

    Are you worried about smell? If so get a carbon filter attached to your exhaust.

      Does this apply to autos to ?
      I have three tents, two in flower and the other are seedlings.
      There is a small lightleak from all tents and they are in diffrent cycles.

      Should I be worried and do something?
      Advice appreciated!

    Hey thanks guys! But ya I know i need to get my exhaust and intake put in which I'm actually fixing to do. And as far as the light leaks I'm in the process of coming up with a for sure solution. And shotgun980 I actually do plan on doing lst. It's my favorite method and hopefully it WILL full fill up that box!! And I'm not really worried about smell too much Qwertywill. I actual have a carbon filter it's just industrial size. But again thanks for the input! I'm really hoping she'll sprout today. 😊

        Cool setup! Love seeing these diy grow setups.
        For the light leaks - I like to use the foam door sealer, especially on sections that open.
        For the upper gaps, some angle will seal that up nicely.
        Any plans on painting the inside?
        Looking forward to an update!
        Im just a shy guy with a big dick.

          Hey yellow thanks for the pointers and compliments! And yes I will paint the inside flat white. But I'm in the process of installing my intake and exhaust now so I'll have pics posted once it's complete. I'm just ready to get started 😊

            How exciting! I find installing and manipulating my equipment just as much fun as growing.
            What exhaust are you using?
            Even though people stress about it, I have no intake in my setup and it works great... I use LED though.

          Heres what I've got now. Still need to apply some silicone just so it's air and light right. And get something more reflective as well. But my plant, it's fixing to come thru the soil. I'll post a pic as soon as its fully exposed. Installed my pump today too. Pretty stoked to get started.

              24 hours above soil. I'm glad the balls finally rolling! I'm going to research it but I was wondering, how long should I wait to transplant to my hydro set-up?? Thanks for any advice advance!

                Eek you started it in soil! You dont wanna do that when your using hydro! All the little pieces of dirt can clog lines etc. You will need to clean the roots REALLY well before you do that... try to get every speckof dirt off. Use rockwool cubes or rapid rooters etc... soiless if your doing hydro.

              Well it was kind of spur of the moment. Didn't have access to those. But ive actually done it once before in a bubbler set up and it worked. I think I'll be able to manage because it will be placed in clay pebbles and it's in very little soil. Idk. I know you're right but I'm hoping it all works out. So ya.

                Dwc would be different. Air pump runs consistantly, so its much more unlikely it will clog! There are no lines other than that! I thought you ment an ebb and flow where there is a flood and drain line... so good news!

                Just rinse the dirty off in the sink and replant in the hydrotone . It should be fine .

                  Yes you can’t easily fill that space with one plant . My dwc plants each fill a 4x4 scrog or bigger with no problem . They are 3 feet wide without the net .

                    Your soil to hydro transplant is the last thing you want to do in hydro but you’re correct that it won’t be life ending if done with care. Especially since it’s so small it won’t be holding onto a lot of dirt with its roots. It’s size might have negative effect though do to age and strength. I think you’ll do great. And with that sized box 1 plant is the maximum you’ll ever want to put in there. With just a little training you’ll fill that box packed.
