{April 2, 2009}   Into the veg room…

These ladies are about a week old and are going into the veg chamber from the clone coffin. They have been put into 4″ rockwool cubes. I learned early on how important stabalizing the ph of the rockwool at 6.0 BEFORE you make them new homes to your plants. They got their first dose of nutes here, a mix of General Hydroponics Flora Nova, MagiCal and Vegan Compost Tea. EC for this first watering in the old ebb-and-flow is at about 800. I use a Hanna hand-held ph and EC combo meter to dial in the right amount of nutes, then to adjust the ph accordingly. They are being lit up by an 8 tube t5 fixture about 3″ from the tops of the plants.
