NYGC Coco: 2nd Grow - 1st time in a community
Ok - just couldn't get going enough to get this started yesterday. I got my pots filled with Coco Loco by Fox Farm and watered it down last night. I am getting ready to drop my seeds into water this morning, on paper towels tonight and hopefully have them in their first home by Wednesday/Thursday.
I am trying out a new 400W iPower HID light with a MH bulb for Vegetative and HPS for Flowering. It's winter here in the DMV and I am hoping that rather than directly pushing the warm air out of an exhaust window, I will be able to push some warm air into the dungeon (my tent area under the garage) over the next 2 1/2 months. Using a 2 x 4 x 5 tent, four plants, which should be 100W per plant. My first grow was under LEDs (HLG R-Spec and now my summer tent).
Here is a little note on the seeds (the Black Sugar and Blueberry (1 each) are 14 months old. We'll see how good I stored them (fingers crossed). Just dropped them in water and we will check back this afternoon/evening.
It’s been just under four weeks and I wish I had something better to say or show, but I dropped the seedlings off of my heating mat onto the stones in my dungeon. I was able to pick them up and save a couple. I know the Black Sugar didn’t make it, and I am unsure about the RHC. I had some other seeds germinating as a back-up, so I ended up saving four – I am pretty sure my White Widow made it and I am 90 % sure on the Blueberry. The other two are most likely autos, Green Crack or Northern Lights / either or. Got them all together in one tent and we will see in about two weeks which ones flower and which stay vegetating. At that point I can separate the one or two autos into another 2x4x5 tent with the other three inch their own 2x4x5.
