We are happy to announce that the Indoor Grow Series by GreenBox Grown is now ready for release! We will be releasing one video at a time, every other day starting today. Happy Growing!!!
What’s up cannabis growers and welcome to the Indoor Cannabis Growing Series by GreenBox Grown! In this 11 week step by step series, you will see exactly how to grow
cannabis plants from clone all the way to harvest! Those 11 weeks will be broken down into 5 weeks of veg and 6 of flower. Some plants can take more time to finish flower and others can take less, it all depends on strain. Also, I will be starting from clone, but this series works perfectly if you are starting from seeds as well. Just start our “Starting From Seed” Series first, and then begin this one once that has been completed. This video is to give you an introduction to the grow and how the space will be setup, so lets go ahead and check that out!
Alright so first off, the tent is 4ft by 2ft by 5ft tall. Down here are the 2 clones I will be starting this grow from, 1 is a lemon banana sherbet and the other is a double tangle banana and they are both indica dominate hybrids. You will also notice I am growing in 5 gallon fabric pots, which are being slightly elevated by a crate for proper drainage. The growing medium is a 50 50 mix of coco coir with perlite and Fox Farms Ocean Forest. The perlite coco coir mix is the Roots Organics Soilless mix. I have an oscillating fan in the corner of the tent as well and there will be another fan hanging from the ceiling. It hasn't been hung up yet though. The grow light is a 600W Mars Hydro and a 56 watt LED I normally use for seedlings.
For Nutrients, I will be using the fox farm dirty dozen with coco wet mixed in for proper uptake by the plants. I have a spray bottle for misting the leaves during veg, and my ph pen plus measuring spoons for mixing my nutrients to the perfect levels. I will be doing this grow at a 5.8 pH. You will also want to have a temp of 75 degrees F, and a humidity in the range of 55-65%
Ok this shot is to give you guys a quick reminder of what can happen from your lights being too close to the tops of your plants! I had to raise my light all the way up to the top of the tent as it burned the tops and some of the lower leaves on both my clones! You can tell this is light burn because the yellowing is worse at the top and is causing the leaves to burn all around not just on the edges. These plants are showing signs of shock which is normal for a just transplanted clone, but these other issues are from the lights.
Here you can see I have my lights hooked up to the WeMo Belkin Light timer, which an be controlled from your smartphone. I have them set on an 18 on 6 off schedule at this moment, and once it’s time for flower, I will switch it to 12/12. The timer is nice because I can forget about having to turn the light on and off and sometimes the lights have to stay one really late at night.
Ok so now it is time to transplant the clones into the 5 gallon smart pots. This is really simple, and starts by pulling the name tag out of the Rock Wool cube this clone is in. Then you will want to dig a hole in the very center of the pot, and make it deep enough so once covered in soil, the cube is not showing. Then place the clone in there, and make sure it is standing straight up and down, not leaning to one side. Cover it up with soil until the the cube is completely covered, and then lightly pack all the way around. You can also put the name tag in to the soil around the edge, and then I like to roll up the edges of the pot so there isn't any excess standing up.
Now that your clones have been transplanted, you can give them their first watering and spray. This should be plain water pH’d to 5.8. Give a light misting to cover all leaves, and then gently water some around the base of the plant. For the first watering you don't want to soak the soil, but make sure there is enough so the plant can drink. Once you have finished that step, you are all done with your transplanting and can begin week 1 of this grow series.
