you would need two different areas
one with only vegging plants
the other for flowering
you can figure out the rest I'm sure

Heyheyy, welcome to my grow journal.
Pull up a chair and lets find out what we can achieve with the most basic equipment.
The seeds sprouted at 21.12, they had a hard time the first couple of weeks.
I didn't realize that running 24/0 light cycles was seriously stunting the growth.
Saw immediate improvement when the cycle was changed to 18/6.
The more I know.
The first pic is from 29.1
There wasn't much to document before this time.

Things are looking good.
Anesthesia is in the front, Somango in the back.
Both have been trained and they're filling up the space quite nicely.
Gotta love that Anesthesia's leaf formation.

Took some clones from the lowest branches. Gonna root them with just water in a diy humidor.

She has grown two pistils in the spot where I topped her.
I expected a significant boost in growth, but I guess she didn't really appreciate the man-handling, with the cloning and all that stuff.

On the plus side, she is alive and well.
Had to fill in some extra coco mix because I saw roots growing to the surface.
Her sativa heritage is really starting to kick in with the smell.
It's like a sweet exotic fruit combined with lemon cleaner.

Hoping she'll go turbo-mode once I set 12/12 and give her a good dose of nutes.

Happy and growing vigorously.
Got high hopes for this one.

The red circle is where I topped her.
This plant is hard to keep down. The branches are very sturdy and will straighten themselves if bent to a 90 degree angle.
I've supercropped each "main" branch at least once. Yet not a single one has formed a knuckle.

She smells more earthy compared to the other.
A mix of fruityness with that classic indica pine smell.

Started flowering.
Doing a 24-36 hour darkness period. Then go to 12/12.
Gonna check in when there's hairs.

First day of 12/12.
Replaced the blue cfl with a 125w red one.
Excited to see if the 36 hour dark period had any effect.

Gave each 3 litres of water containing roughly 8ml of bloom, grow and micro

Lift up a Somangos bottom leaf that was touching the coco and saw many roots shooting upwards from where the leaf was resting.
Upon closer inspection I found more tiny white root-tops all around the top layer.
Added more coco to cover them up.

Glad to see she has developed a robust root system.

Also did some bending on each plant.
Trying to maintain an even level on the canopy while giving more light to the lower branches.
Hopefully I'll manage to achieve the bushy size that fills the horizontal space completely.

Well, after a week, and after getting some advice from here, I finally have some rooted clones of my bagseed mother - I call her Patty The Daytime Hooker.

Anywho, I transferred two clones to my DWC buckets filled with expanded clay pebbles. Under a 300W LED right now. My flowering tent has the 1000W HPS/MH system in it, and it won't be free for vegging for probably the next two to three weeks.

This is my first time using a DWC, so I want to see if these guys can make it.

Pic is Patty's First Kid.

UPDATE - Got my nutes in the mail today. Went with the "seedling - clone," dose which is about 1/4 of full strength. Mostly so I don't shock them since they have been just cruising on straight water for the last week.

Going to do some more clones this weekend just to cover my ass in case my hydro grow goes south. Never done it before.

Also, downloaded GrowBuddy. Nice software. Should help me keep track of shit.

OK, going to ask a question in case anyone is actually following this...

I went with 1/4 strength nutes, which were listed for clones/seedlings. Technically, my plants are starting week 2 of their veg cycle. The recommendation for week 2 is actually 1/2 strength nutes.

Anyone think I should switch to 1/2 strength mid-week? Then, by the end of week 2, I will be "caught up." I just don't want to shock these guys. I may only veg one for 4 weeks and then flower it. But, only because I haven't seen what Patty The Daytiime Hooker can produce. She may be a gem. The two I am flowering now from the same jumble of bag seed seem to be worth hold on to. One is a frosty looking bitch, whom is really filling out in this last week or so of flowering. Gonna reveg her for the cuttings....

Which line of GH nutes did you choose? I myself follow the school of underfeeding my plants. Advantages are that nutes last longer and it's harder to nute burn plants this way. If you suspect a deficiency, make sure you ph is correct and that the roots look good. If both check out then you can add a bit more ferts. You're wise to use caution, since hydro has no buffer between roots and the nutrient solution, less = more. If you don't already have it, I would recommend a Calcium/magnesium supplement, and something to prevent root rot, such as Hydroguard.

Example for me would be:
I'm growing Fem White Widow in 3 gal DWC (just a bucket filled with nutrient solution with an air line running into the water for dissolved oxygen. Vegged for 6 weeks, bloomed for 8/9 weeks.

GH reccoments 1/4 tsp per Gallon for seedlings/clones
I would use 1/8 tsp per gallon

GH reccomends 1 tsp Grow/ 2 tsp Micro/ 3 tsp Bloom per gallon
I use have.

I use full recommended strength for the Hydroguard. Then use double strength CaliMagic as cal-mag defs are common and plants can't really get too much cal-mag as long as they're given in the proper ratio.

I let my ph float in the 5.5-6.5 are and use the dropper kit to test my ph. I have no way of testing PPM/TDS and had no problems so far. Water stays around 65-75* F.

After a week I change the res with a fresh batch of nutes

The filter protects from shit that is too small getting into the system and fucking it up. Logic dictates you should keep the filter in.

What you should do is figure out the size of THAT filter and get a big screen that is that size or smaller. Then, filter the compost tea through that. I imagine the right kind of silkscreen would do it. Pretty cost effective since you can blast it with a hose to clean it.

I can't imagine how this filter would remove anything that can help your plants, no microbes, no nutrients.
What I was hinting at was that irrigation system are built to be used with fully soluble fertilizers. And that if you like to use one with something that has more particulate matter in it you need more filtering, not less.

Several stages where you filter out large particulate matter, grain size and then finally your normal filter that comes with the setup.

I am interested in starting a small home grow setup. I have 2 plants that are growing pretty well, but one of them has all but outgrown the shelf I was growing it on. It seems to me that the best course of action at this point would be to get a growbox. I believe I would be using LEDs for my grow because they are fairly inexpensive and efficient. I am looking for something relatively small and discrete, and preferably inexpensive. In particular I was looking at this tent listed on Amazon.

I am a total newbie to this, and I need some guidance. Is it a good idea to get this tent? Would it be able to accommodate my 2 plants? Would a LED grow dramatically affect my electric bill? What are ways I can reduce the odor of my grow operation? Would it be feasible to contain this small grow op within my 1br apartment, or would it be too risky? What should I do with my plants if this is not feasible?

Your biggest issue will be odor. You can pull this off, but it will be tight.

For the lights go with a 400w or 600w switchable ballast for HPS/MH. LEDs are OK, but honestly seem to do better for keeping mothers and clones going.

Two of my cuttings rooted nicely within the week. I have two still in the process of rooting, and two kicked it, but probably because I was a bit sloppy on where I took them from. The good news is that I have two clones in my DWC system that have been doing fine since the 11th. No nutes yet, but that will happen soon. I have a grow log of them on the front page that I will keep updating.

This is my first time growing cannabis and I had some seedlings growing for about a week and half without any issues but now recently this one has begun to start pointing her serrated leaves upward and also began to show a almost transparent light tan color on the leaves.
