Congrats on the new setup. I've been looking at 3 X 3 also and wondered how many plants you figure on growing? I'm thinking 4 should fit no problem but some say it needs to be 4 X 4.

Congrats Superfresh89 on your purchase. The Quantum Boards are just awesome in my tent, and should work the same for yourself. I’m only a few weeks from finishing. What strains are you thinking about growing for your grow. Planning out my 2nd grow and will probably just go with 6 plants this time, and do a little more extreme topping/training. Take it you took advantage of Seedsman and their Halloween bundle they had?

I would go 4x4 if you have the room for it. I got 8 in my tent of 4x4 size, but next grow I think I will go 2 less plants. This way your plants can get more light during vegging and flowering, which will make them nice and big.

I was planning on starting with just 1-2 auto plants. I have no intention of germinating more than 4 seeds at once, to stay under the legal limit.

I decided to go with a 3x3 to stay on budget. 4x4 would be nice, but would require twice as many lights. I've already spent close to a grand on stuff already :)

Current plan is to get a couple grows under my belt in a 3x3, and I'd get a second 3x3 tent with a single HLG100 board for veg. If I had gone with the 4x4, I'd have to either divide my tent in half or buy more lights. Getting a second 4x4 veg tent would be a lot more expensive than a second 3x3.

4x4 is only a little more than a 3x3 tent... Should I grow with insufficient light in a oversized tent? Or overkill in a 3x3 tent?

I missed the Halloween promo but their Black Friday sale was decent. Here's what I grabbed:

Fastbuds:
3x Girl Scout Cookies Auto Fem

Expert Seeds:
2x Cheese Auto Fem
2x Blue Cheese Auto Fem
2x Northern Lights x Big Bud Auto Fem
2x OGesus Auto Fem

Freebies:
5x Fire OG Fem
3x White Widow Fem
3x Alaskan Purple Fem
3x Cali Orange Fem
2x Cali Snow Auto Fem
2x Diesel Auto
2x Red Diesel Fem
2x White Siberian Fem
2x Sweet Cheese Fast Fem

Shit. Now that I'm looking at my order again... looks like I got 9x FEM seeds.... I had intended to go for the 9x freebie AUTOS

After nearly a month of research, I've pulled the trigger on the following:

  • 4x QB132 Quantum Boards
  • Mars Hydro 3x3 1680D Grow Tent
  • Fusion Breath 6" in-line fan
  • Fusion Breath 400mm carbon air filter
  • Canna Coco A+B
  • Canna Coco Coir 50L
  • Botanicare Cal-Mag Plus
  • Vivosun 5 gallon fabric bags
  • 39 various seeds from Seedsman
  • Whole bunch of other stuff for pH, thermometer, gardening tools, etc.
Very Nice! I have the same tent by Mars Hydro and absolutely love it. Would love to see some pics once you're all setup!

My order for the Mars Hydro tent was actually cancelled :( They are completely out of stock for another few weeks.

I ended up ordering a 40"x40"x79" 600D Fusion Hut instead. I hope the fabric quality is okay - the reviews are excellent. I do like how the Fusion hut has an extra 9" of height vs. the Mars Hydro though. https://www.growlights.ca/growtent-syst ... -tent.html

The seeds were ~62 EUR, approx. $92 CAD. I paid using ETH.

Yeesh. It's saying shipments could be delayed up to 3 months due to the Canada Post strikes. :( Wanna send me a seed for the time being? lol

LOL - probably just a standard message. Looks like the strike is over now so i wouldn't expect crazy delays.

Worst case check out Crop King Seeds. Extremely fast shipping - usually arrives within 2-3 business days.

They actually emailed me and said they would hold the order and not send it until they get the official OK from Canada Post. I ordered some seeds from PeakSeedsBC.

Just posting a few pics of my first harvest. I harvested my entire Black Domina plant today and got 343g of wet flower, and will lose roughly 60-70% of that weight to drying/curing. I also harvested just the tops of my Granddaddy Purple, Sensi Star CBD, Cookie Monster and Purple Bud and got roughly 120-150g off of each. I have a ton of small buds that were in the dense foliage of my plants and will put them back under the lights for another week or so to finish along with my Girl Scout Cookies and Gorilla Bomb strain. The big one that goes up most my arm, Cookie Monster was 90g alone.

Well I jarred that first part of my harvest today and they lost a lot of weight. My Black Domina strain which gave me 343g of wet flower in the end dropped down to about 96g of dried flower. Harvested the rest of my Cookie Monster strain (285g) and took down my Gorilla Bomb plant (275g) Also pretty much finished my Purple Bud plant but still had a few small buggers I thought I could grab in a few days and see what they do.
