1: I am pretty bad at construction, and some of the finer details of lights send my mind reeling. Thus, I was looking at some of the growtents on HTG supply with appreciation. Has anyone had good results with these? I was going to try to convert a cheap cabinet or something, for the stealth factor, but then ventilation and heat become an issue.
2: Related to above- what about the grow kits that come with lights, fans.. pretty much everything except the pots, the seeds, and carbon scrubbers. It’s also from HTG. Has anyone used those with success? Is it a little too sketchy or good to be true? I mean, on HTG at least, it looks like they’ve bundled together all your basic grow supplies and a tent.
3: Seed storage. So, ironically, the only connections I’ve got have really good green. No seeds in anything I’ve bought for the past year. I’m not really willing to go to the local colleges or schools and start asking random people if they know a guy, for fear of asking the wrong person and getting busted before I begin. Thus, I’m thinking of ordering a handful of seeds from a bank– preferably some really cheap, dinky seeds for my first grow, since I’d rather use bagseed. Is this a retarded idea? Is there some place that sells cheap-ass dinky bagseed?
4: Related to above- so if I order some seed, I want to get some nice seed, too, but obviously I don’t want to use it my first run- or even my first or second run. So, given that: how long will seeds last? How should you store them? Are we talking best-results-in-a-month, or could these guys sit for a year?
5: About plant size and potency. Most of the advice I’m seeing is to let your plant get 1′ or 2′ high and then start flowering. For an indoor grow, this seems like great advice, esp. if they can get 2-3x bigger in the flower. However, does that effect potency? would the plant be more potent if it was allowed to mature longer and then flower, or does it not matter? This is mostly for curiosity- space will only allow for so much height indoors.
6: On the subject of potency- how much does a good grow change weed strength? Say I got ahold of some mids and grew them as techniques here indicate. Would I get high quality mids, or would I get something that is STRONG, though maybe not as strong as a strain would be?
Edit: added 7
7: I’m really interested in multiple strains, but I’m dubious about ordering too regularly. What I’d really like to do is set up a clone system, so as to negate the need for ordering more of the same strain, whenever I Get to growing strains. Unfortunately that leaves me with one strain. So. Has anyone had experience ordering seeds relatively regularly? Would it just be better to sit with one strain? Via (only registered users can se the link, login or register)
