Hey Fellas,
Just wanted to update everyone on my indoor process. I built an ebb and grow system late summer and have grown n rustica to full size. It is being picked as it ripens and I am in the process of curing. Under a 200 watt fluorescent bulb I have had 6 plants grow to full and flower and a few little ones that I expect will shoot up once the bigger ones are picked clean.
I also built a curing chamber out of cardboard and tin foil of all things. Currently using a crock pot for heat and humidity. If anyone is interested Ill post pictures. So 1) is anyone else doing something similar and how are the results and 2)does anyone want pics?

Jesse

You bet!

We like pics, here on HTGT!
:-)

I use plastic and cardboard over a scrap wood frame that holds the leaf on wires strung across.
No heat to it this year, just the crockpot on low.
Works good!

The crock pot is a stroke of genius! I'm useing a big cardboard box! Not very fancy. Looks like it will work though.

Ive let one flower and have topped off the rest. There is a clear difference in leaf sizes between the one that was allowed to flower and the others but I know the seeds will be good because there is not go to be cross-pollination of any sort.

sorry that some of the pics turned upside down. dont know how to fix that

enjoy

...well, I just kinda basically looked at the color and wasn't as concerned abt the upside down... lol

The color of your leaf is really substantial !
I have little interest with inside growing, myself, but it seems like you have done Very well!

There's pics of my humidity tent for color curing in the photo gallery...
I did not run any bulbs for heat this year, or last, but tried two years back.
...there's lot I need to learn! lol

EZ and cheap to fabricate... works well.
