That's a decent amount of light for 3 plants, best of luck with your new grow my friend! 👍
If you've got any grow questions post them up, I'm always happy to help :)

nope!! not this time sunshine not this time.
this is my shop. my biggest challange is that road passes right in front of my shops exhaust (wich is at the entrance of my shop)
smell is the main concern.
2ndly i hope my dad dsnt ask me to open the cupboard to just curiously know how it looks because i made it just few days ago.

FOR TEMPERATURE I HAVE AIR CONDITIONER.

but if the exaust is onn and air-conditioning too is onn it will be waste of electricity and cooling.

2nd ly.. it is minsoon starting. temperature is 30 degrees right now.. after monsoon winter will come. thus i hope it wont be much warmer in the box. but then again i have led wich heat uppp much. but yet again i have an over sized exhaust wich cools it. so every thing i guess has a balance with some benefits and some compromise.

no my exhaust is a simple one. i dnt think i can make a carbon filter. there are many gaps in my cupboard for it to be air tight even.

i dont have any plans for what i will do when it will smell.

my last autoflower did not smell. so i will just hope these new 3 super bud autos will too not smell. other than that i dnt have any plans or strategies i think can work.

The cupboard doesn't need to be airtight to eliminate smell as the exhaust fan hoovers the smell out via the ducting. Hopefully they won't smell too much but it's always when you don't want them to smell that they stink like crazy :)
Any signs of germination yet? Hopefully they'll pop up in the next few days 👍🌱🌱

hahah.. hope so. tomorow is sunday so shop will be closed ill look at it on monday.
lights and exhaust are on. 24 hrs.
i guess ill keep them under 24/7 under light.
and for smell i guess i got one more month to think about.

the main problem is at india we dont get things readily.. even if one is ready to spend tons of money.

for example i have no online or offline option to buy a charcoal exhaust system.
either i have to make it. for wich again ill not het parts to assemble.

or just forget about it.

another such example is a vaporizer. we dnt get it here no matter how much rich you are.

I found this one on ebay.in but I think the price is VERY high, in the states and europe you can get a cheap filter for £30/$40, if my conversion is correct the item comes out at £277/$375 which is outrageous so I see what you mean!
Towards the end you I think you might have to cook a few pungent curries to mask the smell :)

it is this costly because they import it from usa.
they dont make anything here :)

i dont understand the curry thing.
it is in my shop! not home.
how am i suppose to cook curry in the shop :D
will room freshner few of them do? if i place them near the exhaust.

i have ZERO expense about cannabis smell.
as i have just once successfully reached till flowering. and it was outdoors it did not smell. but was very tiny.

Sorry my mistake, yes room fresheners are definitely better than no smell control. Some of them are actually pretty good at masking the smell of a small grow ;)

the soil tends to get a lil harder and forms a type of crust when dry..
when i grab it it feels brittle. but clumpy.
when i mist it. it becomes soft again.
should i insert sucking straws in each hole in my bucket to increase airation

Not necessary, in fact next time I wouldn't recommend drilling holes in the sides, only the bottom. This way when you water the water pools on top of the soil first then pull air down through the soil in a plunger effect.
Your soil mix looks pretty good, keep it moist but not wet and you'll be good as long as you avoid over watering my friend.
