Hello! Welcome to my Sweet Seeds competition grow! I want to start by saying thanks the guys at sweet seeds for their great customer support when I had a issue with my seeds parcel, resolving the issue and getting it to me so I can join in to this competition. This new year I've decided to run a "sweet shop" theme grow including some colourful and interesting girls for the competition. For personal reasons I had to take my grow tent down this Christmas but it has given me a chance to add the build to my diary which I'm pleased about so let's start with that! I started by getting the filter system in, the use of rachet straps made this much easier to align the ducting and attach the jubilee clips while suspended. After checking the fan, filter and ducting for any leaks I moved onto the lighting, again the use of rachet straps made this much easier, I am using a 250w HPS dual spectrum and a 315w CDM lamp, to get started I am only using the HPS and will add the CDM later during flowering so they run side by side. In my last grow I had some temp issues so I've had to bring in a radiator and thermostat to keep temps where I want them. After getting the tent ready and at a stable temp of 21/22c last night I started the germination of my chosen seeds, once in the paper towel I wet them to the point they wont drip but feel moist to the touch, then they have been placed in a sealed box in the airing cupboard for the next 48hrs. Thanks for reading the build intro to my sweet shop diary! here's a breakdown of my setup in use so far: - homebox q120 tent - cyclone duel speed fan - fan speed socket - carboair 60 filter - 250w hps - 315w cdm - oil radiator - inkbird termostat In my next update I will be sowing the tapped seeds and going over what soil and nutrients I will be using during this grow. Catch you then!
