STRAIN:10x Himalaya Gold from Green House Seed Co. LIGHTS: 2x 400W (800 total) HPS. 4ft 40W flourescent tube (found it laying around so opted to use it.) 2ft 15W blue spectrum aquarium flourescent . Lights will be set on 24 hour cycle once they sprout. TEMPERATURE: 68-70 at the moment, i'll keep you posted when i actually turn on the lights, no need at this point. SOIL: Seedling soil with little to no nutrients. I'd like to tell you more specific details but it just says "trace elements" of NPK with PH of 6. The brand name isnt in english so no sense in posting that either. The name literally translates to seedling soil so should be fine. VENTILATION: table fan circulating the air in my grow room. Although i dont have any fan bringing in fresh air as i dont want to knock a hole in the wall (renting apartment). What i do is, during the light cycle i leave the door to my room cracked enough to keep some fresh air flowing in. GROW ROOM: I use a large walk-in closet. Now i know the room is kind of "ghetto" but i rent the place so theres a limit to what i can do.... pictures below at day one after germination, although not all 10 cracked. I believe it was 6 or 7 that did (sorry very tired) but just planted them all so i dont have loose seeds laying around.
