PC Grow Case CFL

Recommended Posts

Ok so after the last plant turned out to be male, I decided I'll keep using this thread because there has been another plant growing in my pc case, I took it outside these last 2 days but have heard this could be too stressful so from now on it will stay inside. The plant is 12 days old and the timings have been 12/12 from seed, the pot is about 3 times the size of the pot I started the other plants in, I'm hoping to keep it short and flower in this pot (if female).

If you would fold that over and pin it to the soil with a piece of coathanger, that thing will explode with branches.

Hey Ronnie, thanks for checking out my grow ;) I'm just gonna wait until I see the first signs of sex and then I may start with some very light LST.

Hey all, here are some pics from Day 24, I found a super cheap thermo to check the temps. The average during the day with the lights on was about 28 degrees celcius, and its dropped to about 26 tonight inside the case. B)

Thanks saxo B)

I've been doing some research on the whole 12/12 method and most say around 4 weeks it should show pistils like you say. Good news is I've finally found a nice 400w hps system so just gonna be saving the next 2 months and I'm good at building so making a cab will be easy. Then I just need to decide what beans I'l be ordering from Sannies, I see if you order 3 packs you get free delivery so at the moment my 3 picks are Sannies Indica mix, the Chocolate mix and then its a toss up between the Blueberry Sativa and the New Blue Diesel....havent decided yet.

Cab will change your life. Great work on the thread, very much fun to see the progress. Amazing work in a PC case!

Ok guys and gals, big update Its been growing outdoors on the roof extremely slowly, havent given it any love, but I checked today and FEMALE B) So I repotted it and now it has been moved into the pc case, the roots were very small because the soil of the pot it was in was very clay like. I've removed the lower 3 branches as they had been eaten by insects and werent looking healthy at all. The bigger plant will still get 12/12 but I'l take it out the case and the lights will stay on so the small plant gets 18/6 so hopefully it can veg properly and it can become a mother. I also started some light LST on the larger plant. Here are the pics ;)

Ok all :) Day 34 and still no signs of sex on the Swazi, done some more lst, removed the big fan leaves (they were stretching into the lights). I picked up a new 20w cfl, so now I have 51 watts, its an extra 500 lumens. The female isnt looking too good I'm hoping its just transplant shock for now.

Day 43, looks like I got the female to reveg since she's starting to grow again and leaves are looking alot healthier. The other plant hasnt shown sex yet, which seems a bit strange....I have a feeling its gonna be male. Thats alright, since I'l probably be scrapping this grow except for the female, which will be moved to a friends grow. Gonna make my order from Sannies at the end of this month and then I'm gonna sort out a bigger cab with a 400w or 600w hps :lol:

Hey rampageZA,

I love folks useing what they got to work with.

I'm a box grow also, I just happen to use wood/insulation an make a box, thats all.

One of my best improvements was to cut holes for my pots to *sink into the floor*, so to speak, I then had to make some legs for the box. BUT, I gave myself, another 1/3rd more flower height, and COOLER medium/root temps.

 

Love the ingenuity!!

Best to ya!!

Hey thanks for kind words man, I've basically been using this pc grow to learn about soil, lights, nutes ect and just learn from hands on experience.

Your improvement is very smart, I'm not sure when my next grow is gonna get built but I will definately use that in my design :lol:

Thanks webeblzr
