Long time listener first-time callers here, we are in the process of making room for our new grow setup! As we are in Canada we are now legally permitted to grow 4 plants per residence, we are preparing a purpose-built 4 plant setup for our federally legal recreational plants while we complete the remaining hoops to once again grow our own medical cannabis post-legalization.
The space we have allotted is not the holy grail by any means, however it is what we have. The space overall is 4’ W x 6’ T X 14’ and instead of the typical panda poly guerilla affair I was more familiar with; we are going with tents and hard plumbed HVAC. We are hoping to fill the space with tents in stages should our design and equipment work in our favor and budget permitting even to grow our starts for our outdoor garden, cloning some trickier-to-grow plants, mothers etc basically make good by the space and investment, continue to make medicine that we use daily in the 4x4 we are currently testing.
-Mammoth Classic 120: Grow Tent 4x4x6
-MARS HYDRO TS3000: 450w draw Full Spectrum L.E.D
-2x AC Infinity T4: Automated Temp and Humidity controlled 4" extractor@ 205 CFM , controller and probe
-4 Pot AutoPot XL: 25L Pots, 47L Res
-Phresh Inline Carbon Filter: 6" 500 CFM
-2x 4" Hooded and Grated exterior vents
-30’ of 4" smooth pipe duct, a T, a Cap, 2 adjustable elbows and a half-baked plan
We are running full Biocanna lineup on starting on 35-50% of their recommended dosage on their recommended schedule for our size of res as we are running feeders to 70/30 soil/pearlite.
We are currently in a Covid-19 Stand-off with 2 seed banks (Pacific and True North) waiting on fems to arrive. We have ordered: Cali Kush, Training Day, Pot O Gold and Sour Diesel, from Pacific Seed Bank & Barney’s LSD and Gelato 33 from True North. Praying it arrives any day soon but not looking great at the moment. Week 2, nothing but payment confirmation
Setup the tent and ran an 18 hour cycle to see how she vegs, temps seem not too bad (25-27C), definitely way cooler than any HID I have run in the past, with good throw, bright natural-looking light (white full spectrum, quantum board LED). The T4 and controller is super intuitive and reminiscent of industrial multi-port controllers of yesteryear, this time as if made by google. Set high & low temp cutoffs and a humidity range and walk away. Fan ramps on its own, managed the heat and humidity and did so quietly. The other T4 will sit downstream in hard piping where it’s plugged into and controlled by the controller associated with the tent. 18 hours, 100% power on the TS 3000 and the fan ran at 3/10 speed all night not even perceptible outside the room it’s stored in currently.
Getting the exterior vents plumbed this week so that HVAC can be hung and the tent set into final position ASAP. Hope to have further data and better progress pics soon, happy to hear from all of you…Thanks for checking in!
