Came home from work and my new seedling has sprouted!

Strain is Dinafem's Blue Cheese. According to Dinafem, flowering time for Blue Cheese is 50 days, and should begin before the plant reaches 15 inches.

Grow medium is Fox Farm's Ocean Forest mixed 50/50 with perlite in a 4-gallon grow pot. Nutes are Fox Farms trio, Grow Big, Big Bloom, and Tiger Bloom. From what I understand, Ocean Forest is nutrient-rich enough that adding nutes isn't necessary until flowering begins.

I'll be vegging her under a 2 ft T5 with two 24-watt bulbs, and three 42 watt CFLs. At the moment only the T5 and one of the CFLs is on, the other two will come on once she gets a little bigger. For flower, I'll be using a 300 watt Mars Hydro LED. The LED arrived earlier today, never used one before. Despite being pretty cheap, construction is solid and all the lights work properly. There's no on/off switch, which I don't like, but it shouldn't be an issue.

I don't know whether I'll be scrogging this plant or mainlining.

normally low CCT works best unless you want really tight inter-nodes like for bonsai mothers or something. But then white LEDs generally have enough blue light in them for that to be an issue.
So I'd take 4x3000k or even 4x2700k.

I've been reading about and am also interested. You could always go Trailer Park boys style and yank some recycling bins/garbage cans off the curb. I've read that feeder fish (minnows etc) are a bit easier than goldfish and cheaper to start your system with. I'm thinking about starting very small with maybe some beans and minnows and trying to get the fine tuning worked out.

How to turn an old refrigerator into a grow box?
It has:
One single door, hole in back upper area for the "cooling" wire that has been removed, draining tube inside, middle back wall that exits into middle of back of the fridge, wiring that came from the "motor" and electrical parts that has been removed, in the usual under spot as usual refrigerators, and on the top there are a few electrical pieces such as a LED, temeperature controller, and the "melt the ice" button.

The wiring is divided into 4 small 2,0mm wires, black, blue, green, and brown.

What is the voltage?

If 110v, 150w is 1.36 amps.
If 220v, 150w is .68 amps.
If 12v, 150w is 12.5 amps.

Pretty much any gauge of wire thicker than 20ga will work. You are dealing with literally like no electricity here. Most 110v wiring is like 12 or 14 gauge and can handle about 1500w. Or roughly about 15 amps. This should go on the crops, engineering or how-to board. Probably crops though.

Enjoying burning your house down though lol.

That's obviously not the kind of reflector I am posting about.

You aren't aware of better HID reflectors that do actually spread out the light?
But what am I saying even a basic gull-wing reflector spreads out the light from the "backside" of the bulb.


LEDs without any optics are basically lambertian light sources, that means they are dimmer the higher the angle from the center of illumination. You actually want a light source that does the opposite so that it becomes brighter on higher angles because the distance to the canopy is the lowest right under the light.

That said you're fine if you hang your cob high enough so that the angle you are actually using isn't higher than 60 degrees.

Spread isn't a problem either for me as long as you have individual collimators that do a 60-70 degree angle with the light going through them. Any higher than that and you'll have spillover of light onto the walls and any less, you have spotlights on the floor until you've raised the lights so far up that the bottom branches don't have enough power to engage in photosynthesis.

Hey all, been a long time since I've been around but hopefully you guys are as good as you were 7 years ago! Now that Growing for personal use is legal in California I'd like to start growing again.

Won't lie, it's been almost 5 years since I grew and I wasn't the main guy in my op so I did more tending to the plants then setting up the whole thing. What are some good hydro setups I can setup that aren't too pricy? Not looking to do large amounts this time, just 2 or 3 plants for the wife and I, tits in return!

This is about as simple as it gets. You don't need jars or a pressure cooker, your substrate's already sterilized and ready to go. You won't get as big of a yield as you would with using a monotub, but you don't have to go through the trouble of getting a tote, sanitizing it, drilling holes in it, lining it with plastic, and all that. And by having a bunch of small bags instead of one big monotub, you won't have all your eggs in one basket and a contamination won't be a massive loss.

I was hoping to get 4 oz a plant but we had ventilation problems and then a few more nute problems along the way, too many cooks n all that.

Luckily these guys made it through. As you can see theyve shed a lot of leaves.
They are maturing but we know they may need upto another 4 weeks. This is a strain we grow very often from a very established mother.

Doesnt look like 4 though, what do you guys reckon? 2, 2 and a half? Think we can get 3 in another month?

Pic is large.

if you have the thing tuned in why are you coming so why are you asking questions about it?

that looks like about a quarter ounce or two per plant

>Think we can get 3 in another month?
yeah, maybe you can squeeze that third quarter ounce out, who the fuck am i supposed to know? these are clones of your very established mother, so you should know pretty much everything thats gonna happen, but you didn't even tell use a strain name & expect us to tell you whats up?

That guys right though, OP didn't even state what kind of light he is using so nobody is going to be able to give any kind of useful estimate.

And besides that, just grow it and see how much it yields, it's not like a prediction will have any influence on how much it will eventually yield.
