Hi all, Please bear with me as I want to pick your juicy brain. ALOT. I'm a first time grower and was hoping to pick your brains. ( I've posted already but since reconsidered my set up ) If I show you my shopping list please can let me know your thoughts. Whether it's something I've missed or dont have enough of, please let me know. 5 plant scrog grow. 1x tent ( 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.8 ) 1x 8 inch fan / carbon filter kit 1 x 600w light HPS (would I need 2) 1x ph tester 1x ec meter Coco nutriants A + B Perlite 1x 20 Litre Cana coco 2x 50 Litre 12 Litre fabric pots x 5 Bruce banner seeds x 5 Twin pack Rope ratchet x2 2x mini usb desk fans 5 pack of syringe Thermostat/humidity stat Timer plug Scrog net Ph up/down So I'm thinking of growing/scroging 5 plants. I hear bruce banners are good for scrogging. Let me know your thoughts/experiences. If you wouldnt mind answering a few questions also? It would be appreciated. 1. Lighting - 1x 600w hps sufficient for 5 scrog plants. To handle the limited light I was going to use the middle of the net so there is 5 plants in an X shape. So there lights have less of a canopy to light. 2. Lighting - If the answer is no and I would need two lights. Can you reduce the size of the pots or would you have to do less plants. Or is the answer simply a smaller tent. (I wanted a larger tent so I can increase number of plants I grow once I become competent) 3. Seedling - how much light do you give seedlings? I plan on using the paper towel method to germinate and was thinking of putting them straight into the 12 litre pots once the seeds are ready. Would you go to a smaller pot and then into the 12 litre? 4. Veg - How long would you veg for based on my plan? Time is no issue, I'd rather a better yield. 4. Scrog net - how high would position the net from the plant? 5. Light height - how high above the net would position the light? Growing bruce banner and I have 1.8 in height. Training plans Please let me know if I'm missing a step or going wrong. I was planning on topping them two or three times early in the veg stage. Whilst regularly trimming the bottom of the plant to increase the energy going to the top of the plant. Once they have grown about 6 inches above the scrog net, start to train them to grow out instead of up. I'm unsure on how long to veg them - any advice? And once I switch to the flowering stage I will add an additional net to support tops of the plant as they grow up. Do I need to do any trimming once I switch to flowering? Thank in advance for you help and please ask me anything you might need to know in order to help. Major flop.
