What's up everybody! My first topic on OG2.0 and my first grow since back when OG1.0 was around. A few of you know me from the newly created Discord chat server:
You can find the link here - it's great! https://overgrow.com/t/i-made-an-unofficial-overgrow-com-discord/9081
The guys on there have been a ton of help in getting me up and going. Thanks @Jellypowered @Roux @MadScientist @GrapeApe @Pedro_Bann @Mr.Sparkle you all have been awesome and I appreciate it!
So, I will be running a 2ft x 4ft x 5ft tent with a SolSheet that I put together from one of @Baudelaire's kits. I will be attempting to germinate some feminized Headband seeds by @Scissor-Hanz. I have been told they are tough to germinate but well worth it. Due to laws I am limited to a maximum of 4 plants . So I have opted to grow in 4 smart pots using Royal Gold Tupur. I will be ScrOG'ing (I think!). I will be hand-watering for now, using @GreenleafNutrients MegaCrop augmented by GH CALiMAGic.
I plan on trying to work on automating my grows in the future piece by piece. I'd even like to put together something with an Arduino/Raspbery Pi 3 to serve as the controller. I code for a living and technology is one of my passions, so... yeah. I am also hoping to add 5 more solstrips before flower. But anyways we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
So I have my tent (2x4x5ft) in this weird little "addition" to the house it is about the size of a walk-in closet, but it is NOT insulated. However it can be kept relatively stable I think by keeping the door to the closet open (It is off of the bedroom). Half of the room is reserved for the tent and some misc grow equipment, the other half clothes and stuff.
So without further delay, here are some pics... I am going to be limited it first because of the site rules.
The tent, light, pots and "drain pan":
Did I mention I dropped 4 seeds to soak at 10:15pm or so 3/25/18? Hopefully this is the conception!
More to come tomorrow... I still have to fill the pots with the Royal Gold Tupur, and set up my little seedling dome. Oh, and did I mention that I will be setting up a WiFi camera I have inside the tent. I hope to put together a time lapse in the end. We'll see!
And yes, I still need an exhaust fan. I am hoping to get one of the AC Infinity Cloudline T4's in the very near future. You can't see it in the pic, but I have a clip on fan blowing directly on the light for added heat dissipation there.
Hope you all enjoyed this start to a new grow. From scratch!
