Last week we gained an idea of what to expect over the next 4-5 months of our Space Bucket Grow. Today let's look at the specifics of the Initiate's Grocery List. Also check out our DIY page for images and links for these items.
Initiate's Grocery List
GFCI Adapter (Safety first!) This one item will turn a dangerous short into a tripped GFCI breaker.
Drain Pan (15 inch diameter) to place under Space Bucket. Used to catch water run-off and assist in moving the Space Bucket around on the floor.
Humidity/Temp Monitor to place in, on, or near Space Bucket. Necessary to know interior Temperature and Humidity.
Potting Soil: neutral Nitrogen dense soil that is gentle on new roots. Examples: Fox Farms Happy Frog Potting Soil
Fertilized Soil: nutrient rich soil, aka 'Hot Soil'. So many nutrients it burns new roots. For example: Fox Farms Ocean Forest, Fox Farms Strawberry Fields, and NFTG Soil.
Perlite: soil medium used to aid aeration of roots. This is used along with all soils mentioned in a ratio of 1/3 Perlite to 2/3 Soil.
Fox Farms Trio of Nutrients (Big Bloom, Grow Big, and Tiger Bloom). This Trio will work from Veg to Flower.
Cannabis roots are like straws that suck up water and nutrients. pH tells them how wide or how thin they should be. pHing is a required step for a successful Grow.
pH Up and Down
NFTG: Olympus Up and Hades Down
Space Buckets hold multiple Party Cups, two 1-gallon Plastic pots, and seat a 3-gallon plastic pot with a little bit of wiggle room. A 3-gallon fabric Smart pot fits like a glove.
