Hi all welcome to my journal, I’d like to say my first grow but it’s my second. I’ll start off by telling your my grow area Is in a metal shed so I envisage a lot of temperature issues throughout any grow I attempt to do. Before I set everything up I insulated the wall where my tent is going to be. I’ve raised my tent off the floor and also insulated underneath that.

My grow space is a 60x60x140 cm tent I’m using a Marshydro TS1000 led will be really it’s first run as I only got it halfway through my last run by which point it was too late. I have a black orchid 4 inch exhaust fan and a 4 inch swift air carbon filter. I have 2 4 inch fans one at the top of the tent one that will be at plant height. I also have a 4ft and a 2 ft greenhouse tube heaters in there and a pure mate humidifier which is taking up far to much room ?

4B332900 DA3F 4DD7 AFC4 5F080267B56B

 

For this run I am hopefully goin to grow 3 stains by 3 different breeders. all 3 seeds went into the water yesterday and are now in paper towels and I’m waiting for them to sprout. I’m doing 3 different ones because my last run I grew the same   stain with not great results, so hopefully at least this way I’ll know if it’s my fault or not if I don’t get much of a harvest ???

strain 1 is Auto Jack Herer by advanced seeds. http://www.advancedseeds.com/en/auto-jack-herer

Strain 2 is Super OG kush by pyramid seeds https://www.pyramidseeds.com/super-og-kush

Strain 3 is Auto Big Brother from Hazy Daze genetics. https://hazydazeseeds.wixsite.com/  

 

4D4F76C4 0432 4C1E 9BA4 C8EBAF16D67E

 

I am using 3 gallon fabric pots and on this run I’m using everything biobizz. I intend to put All mix in the bottom 3rd of the pots and the Light mix in the top two thirds. I have got  the Root juice, grow, bloom and top max and I also have the ph +/- 

Now I do have a few questions: 

1 Do i need to add more perlite to the soil?

2 Should I use the root juice when I’m pre watering my pots or wait for life first?

3 Do I need to concern myself with EC? Even tho I’m growing in soil?

I think that’s it, hope that’s not too much information for you all. I welcome all comments and if any of you have any concerns with anything you’ve seen please pull me up on it. I look forward to learning from you all ?✌️?

I've always been told you dont  need to worry to much with ec if your doing soil, just made my last one more hard work, I've not checked any ec and my tap water was very high before I'm using same soil apart from the light mix, so should be good not tracking ec 

Lovely little set up you got best of luck bro

If its salt based nuits, you should the ec mate. 

Dont check EC on organics, because that's not salt based Smile

Thanks gents you’ve confirmed what I was thinking. Second guessing myself after last run ? anyone used the root juice before and should I wait till they are up out the soil? Also thinking I done my home work I’ve just realised that I have 2 indica dom and the jack is obviously a Sativa Dom. Does anyone see me having problems with growing all 3 together? Also not related to the grow if I’m answering someone do I just copy a paste what they’ve said and attach it to my reply then they know I’m answering them? ✌️

Just click quote and their comment appears like this Smile

Your plants may finish at different times, but thats not too much of a problem.

The root juice, you can use it right away, but what root juice is it? who is it made by?

What ever it says on the bottle, never go over half lol. They always have high doses on the nuits. 

Use 1/2 of the recommended dosage for the root juice mate, feed it to the plants a couple of times a week

Cheers macky, I was gonna half lol. If it’s one thing I’ve learnt it’s that nute companys just want you to buy more. And you need to be gentle when feeding autos ✌️

Its a valuable lesson mate, a lot of problems come from over feeding, always take it lightly

I haven’t used biobizz before I’ve screen shot the pdf I downloaded. Don’t know if you’ll be able to see it properly. But whatever was on this I was gonna start off by halving it.

Id personally use the root stim once a week mate, its good through out the grow, but use it at 2ml per litre. They will be fine with that Smile

A quick update. I’ve pre soaked my pots, 2 litre of water in each also added 2mls per litre of root juice. My PH was at 6.1 after mixing. The Auto Big Brother and Super OG are now in their pots, I’m still waiting for the Jack Herer to sprout. It was 12 hrs behind in sinking so its to be expected. Hopefully when I get home tomorrow it will have sprouted. I have also left the lights off for the minute, is this the right thing to do?

I agree, get the light on now mate so when they pop they have light, the heat can help them out a bit too.
