Alright GD Family!!! This BKG Grow is to highlight that you can have a successful cannabis grow for under $125!

Germ Date: 1/7/2018

Everything required for this grow will cost you very little, but will require some elbow grease:

1) Pics 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 above shows my Grow Room Setup:
On the Right Side I have a Reflector series 4'×2'×6' grow tent with a Mars Hydro 300 True Watt LED Light, But for this grow we are on the Left Side which is just silver reflective wrapping paper($3.50) taped to the walls with a Maravi 250 True Watt LED Light($50.00). I use 1 fairly powerful desk fan($15.00) to circulate the air between the 2 grow compartments. DIY CO2 Generator is just a recycled 2liter bottle thats filled 2/3 of the way full with sugar water($.05) and mixed with bread yeast($1.00). Poke a hole through top of cap so fish tank air-line($1.50) can be pushed through and run to above the plants with an air-stone($1.00) so CO2 which is heavier than oxygen will breakdown and sink into plant's leaves.

2) Pics 6, 7, 8 and 9 above shows my Grow Pot Setup:
1 5gallon bucket($3.00) with 1/10inch holes drilled on sides and bottom for air/drainage + 1 Plant Saucer($3.00). Natures Care Organic Soil 5gallons worth($5.00); Fill bottom of bucket with 3 inches of soil and then place 3 eggs($.50) before filling rest of bucket with soil. This gives many necessary nutrients and promotes a healthy bacterium within your soil.

3) Pics 10 & 11 above shows Seedling freshly germinated on 1-4-18:
Seed(Dinafem Sour Diesel Auto from SeedSupreme $13.00) germinated directly in the soil of prepared 5gallon bucket - There is no true need to start germination in water/paper towel or to start in a small container like a solo cup, Planting directly into final pot works just fine.

4) Pic 12 above shows BioBizz Nutes:
Good organic nutrients are the 1 variable you cannot skimp on - This 3 pack($25.00) comes with Bio-Grow, Bio-Bloom & Top-Max which are more than adequate for your grows needs.

5) Pic 13 above shows my big helper:
Hans the Shepherd and 1 of our 5 kitties Arya!

Thanks for all the amazing support and for every Follower! This community/family is what makes this all worth while!! (Well, That and love for Bud!)

There is nothing I like more to see them a budget grow :)
Some growers put way to much money into equipment and don't do very good. When they would have been better spending less money and learning how to grow :)
You are off to a great start and I'll most definitely be along for the ride and watching with interest mate!
This is going to be a fun one and will show you don't need all the expensive equipment and still get great results :)
Will pop back in on the next update mate until then thank you for documenting your Dinafem adventure on the grow diary platform :)
All the best

@biggreens420, Thanks a ton! I looked and didn't see anything similar on GD (not that there isn't, I just didnt find one) so I thought to try it... That and I wanted to expand my Grow Room in a cheaper, more DIY way lol!

Looks like you've gone out of your way to make a very in depth and beautiful setup here. This should produce some absolutely wonderful results. Best wishes on growing this lovely girl. Cheers!

@DabCrab, It would cure the world! Cheers to getting there one day!!

@BudKingsGrow, I think a week of the whole world getting to know this plant better would be the best thing for everyone ;)

@DabCrab, Thats incredible! I have a fairly good grip on the science of the grow, but mainly stick to the major points necessary for a decent yield. Getting an even better understanding can only make me better, more efficient in the end so I'll be checking those out!

It's amazing to see a grower really dial in a grow... Paying direct heed to each variable from CO2 to Spectrum to advanced training techniques and truly maximizing the entire structure from root to Bud! It brings out a side of this wonderful plant that can only be achieved with that kind of dedication to detail - A remarkable and unmatchable beauty!!

On the same note though, Its also amazing to see an enthusiast discover that getting to a successful grow can be done without that much effort, and as result start their own cultivation!

Both avenues of this glorious herb are profoundly spectacular! If only the world would take an hour or two to get to know her for all her wonder :)

:ok_hand::+1: Well rounded setup bro! Interesting techniques with the soil, like placing the eggs. Direct seed plant is also working great here, just add soaking to the mix. :) Hope for a flawless grow! :sunglasses::+1: Happy growing cheers!

@CANNASIM, Never tried bananas! Usually completely decomposed. I'll try soaking before planting next time, Thanks!!

@BudKingsGrow, yap depends on the seed origens too, like old seeds are better to scarify, before the germination process, i just activate them with soaking for 12-18 hours, then direct soil plant, plugs did not perform well here.
Cool technique do the eggs get enough time to decompose? I have seen also a combo with a banana. Happy growing enjoy :+1::skin-tone-2::facepunch::skin-tone-2::+1::skin-tone-2::facepunch::skin-tone-2:

@CANNASIM, Thanks Man! Appreciate the feedback too! I've had mixed luck with soaking my seeds for some reason. Not sure if there's something I'm missing in the process, but I end up not germinating. I see so many other Growers having great success soaking seeds so I know it works well, just cant seem to get that one right lol! My Grandpa taught me a lot about gardening when I was young and he would always seed his raised tomato beds with eggs - Said it was good for flowering. Have done it in every one of my grows and haven't run into any issues so I just keep the tradition rolling :wink:

@smokevera, Morning! Ah, Gotcha! That's pretty rad that Mars Hydro has someone on GD helping out! I've honestly had nothing but success out of my Mars Hydro 720watt LED... It's efficient, easy to use, and produces excellent light par levels in my Grow Room! I only wish I could do a much larger setup running 3 or 4 720's!

Thanks for chiming in and for your support of Growers on GD! (This platform may be in it's "Teenage" years, but it has a lot of potential to drive the Cannabis community forward, while encouraging new Growers, and making good profits all around!)

@smokevera, Morning! Thanks for popping in and the encouragement! Will give weekly updates for sure, so thanks for following :grinning:

On another note: Where are your Grow Diaries? I noticed from your Profile Activity that you are with Mars Hydro, Is that true? My Mars Hydro 720watt light (not used on this particular GD) is the foundation of my Grow Room! This light has produced excellent grows for me time and time again - Very Excellent product!!
