My first DIY Grow BOX / Green house
« : Tammikuu 24, 2014, 14:01:41 ip »
HI!

I built a low cost green house for the germinating and growing.

So, there are few light in my flat so i need artifical light. The main viewpoint was a safety. I work all day so i afraid of the "lone" things.. (High temperature, fire etc ..)
Therefore HPS lamps are excluded. I chose by cfl-s, and glass.

I had eaves channel, cables, AC/DC converter , fans, ceramic blub socekts at home..
So i got an aquarium with a little crack on online auctions.
I made a lamp with CFL-s . (4x23W 6500K.)
I used mylar for the bettter light utilization. 





Seeds:
7pod yellow
Red Habanero
Monster Naga
Fatalii
Congo yellow
Jalapeno
bishop's crown (I think :D )
 8)

Original aquarium and fan:


Lamp:






Mylar install:



Ready for the seeds:

Hi!
A made a mistake i think... Early fertirilzing.. First, i gave them in a half dose, than after 1 week in a normal dose..  I washed the soil carefully before 4 days..
Do you have any idea, what do i have to do?
Ratio was:
P2O5 : 5,2%
N : 3,3%
K2O: 6,7%

Number of dropped leaves: 5

There was everything ok:









First signs:

Don't worry. Those are old leafs. New leafs show the condition of plant.

I think the lower leaves aren't getting enough light. If you can, try to adjust the lamp so it is closer to the plants(10-15cm).

The distance between upper leafs and blubs is 20cm. I'll try reduce the distance.
Thanks!

Oh, not so far away then. Keep an eye on the plants as they grow, otherwise the upper leaves may get "sunburnt" when they reach the light.

I got a tip: Overwatering maybe. The plants got a water twice a week. I'll reduce only one and hope.

I transplanted my peppers last weekend. I think the problem was a little soil and overwatering. They are better.

Holy cr*p! At first glance I thought that was a small alligator in some sort of sewer pipe... :D But it'a lizard. :) Goot to hear that your peppers are better now.
