It’s been a long time coming, and though there are still a few items to do, and many things in disarray, the new grow room is operational!
The stats are; 14′ wide – 8′ deep – 9′ tall. Drywall exterior, insulated 2×4 walls with reflective foam panel interior. I have a small 8000 BTU AC unit, cooling/dehumidifying. Cycling carbon-filter/fan set up clears the room every 15 minutes, via filtered (non-hepa, electrostatic) air intake.
I am currently still utilizing the tents, as I’m running differing light schedules. I am also working on adding better ambient lighting, for my eyes as well as taking photos.
In the Bloom-Tent, we’ve gone all mad scientist. I have the Pro-Grow 400 covering the core area, there are some rather large plants. In addition to the Aurora Indica cuttings, one plant in particular, a Bubblelicious from seed that is about 3 feet tall, about 3 feet wide, and insanely dense. I didn’t want to have to prune or lollypop it, as I’d be losing ounces and ounces of vegetative growth. I am now running the Pro-Grow 180 in addition, as a low, horizontal side lighting supplement. I’m trying for arm length colas, fat & sticky from tip to stem! If she remains healthy and buds out normally over the next 6 weeks, it will no doubt be the largest plant I’ve ever grown.
Now in sequestered darkness for a few days, our White Widow #3 cutting that bloomed quietly under the Pro-Grow 180 is nearing her peak. For a neglected, underfed/watered plant, she has produced some amazing bud clusters that were heavy enough to require staking. Bright red hairs protrude over a landscape of trichomes that sparkle and highlight the lime green calyxes beneath them.
