Hello fellow OGers ,
Today I start my first legal grow here in Ontario Canada. I grew many many moons ago in my younger years and I was a member back in the early 2000’s under another username. Now I’m able to legally grow four plants under our new laws and I’m starting with some Blueberry Cookies and Sweet Deep Grapefruit from Dinafem seeds. I hope to document the grow as best I can as well as it’s environment(grow room) in order to learn more and eventually get more proficient and efficient at growing. All comments, questions and suggestions are encouraged. I see this as a forum to engage in conversations to broaden my knowledge and understanding of all things, so please ask questions, give me suggestions and teach me what you are willing to share as I am willing to learn.
Seeds were ordered and purchased through hemp depot (www.hempdepot.ca) I can’t say enough good things about these folks. Fast, secure and all around great service from these guys.
Note: I ordered some other seeds as well from another seed vendor, True North Seedbank, but I have not received them as of yet. More on that at a later time but strains include:
- 5 X Barney’s Farm Glue Gelato (auto fem)
- 5 X Sweet Seeds Dark Devil (auto fem)
- 5 X Sweet Seeds Black Cream (auto fem)
- 10 X Oasis Genetics BerryBlue (auto fem)
I have a dedicated room that will house a 4X4X7 Gorilla Grow tent. Although I do not have the tent yet as it is being shipped, I do have the lights, the carbon filter and the in-line fan for outside venting as well as all the necessary ducting for air intake. The air supply will come air conditioned and cooled via a 4" line. The exhaust will go directly outside after being scrubbed by the carbon filter.
I’ve decided to try the following LED light for this grow:
VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 600W (V600) LED
I have little experience with LEDs but wanted to give them a try. Back in 2002 I used HPS for flower and a MH for veg cycles, so this is all new to me.
I’ll post more information and more specifications soon. For now, here are some pics of the seeds that have sprouted and been transplanted.
