^ That's a really, really good choice man. It's not a strain I'm familiar with but I read the link and I think the strain is perfectly suited for you.
Unlike typical sativas she grows extremely well indoor
She is surprisingly adaptable, easy to grow, and a good choice for novice gardeners.
Kalichakra responds well to being tied down and can grow an impressively large main cola from the even light distribution. However, due to the airy growth pattern light passes through to all flowering shoots. Therefore you don’t have to tie down the plant unless you unexpectedly run into problems with height or have a very poor light source. We recommend this strain for SCROG and nearly all plants can be easily fitted into a SOG (sea of green) style grow despite the branchy growth. Due to the low odour this is a good choice as a "stealth strain" for discreet cultivation.
The calyx-to-leaf ratio is exceptionally good and makes harvesting very quick and simple.

Scrog can only be done from clones though..I think I forgot to mention that

You can't really do it from seed cause you're gonna have some males and once they have grown and twisted into the scrog screen it's gonna be real difficult if not impossible to remove them

If you don't want to get into cloning this time around there is another training technique that gives similar results to SCROG. It's called Low Stress Training (LST) There's several members who are currently applying the technique in their grow journal in the Your Baby forum of the growing section.

Also have a look here for guides about LST

And look here for info about the Sea of Green (SOG) method

For seed storage look here

or if he really wants to, he can get feminized seeds.. a little pricier, but worth it in the long run (paying $30-50 more for 2-4 extra females)

So i got a a bunch of seeds from a great plant gone hermie. i've heard they will all be female, is this too good to be true?
Nope, a hermie female can only make gametes with XX chromosomes so it's true! There's no possibility of a XY combination!

is this why i've had females with any bagseed and half males when getting them from a seedbank?

Yup- commercial growers don't typically keep males around so any stray pollen is more than likely from a hermie female.

if they are feminized, i wonder if they will be more likely hermie too?

Yes. They will produce male sex parts under similar conditions to the mother. So if the commercial grower ran hot and got hermies, if you run hot you can expect them too

thanks again higher, food for thought that is if i get one then maybe i should separate it away from the rest & claim free seeds "saves me ordering from any seed company" if i were to get this happening would stickin the seeds in the fridge keep the seeds alive & from germinating?

If you want to preserve genetics you should do some cloning

I don't know too much about the whole seed business and whatnot

Ok so:

lingering 22 to 25 Deg C
PH of 6.5 to 7 for water and soil
EC 0.3
Humidity 45/50%
600w SMH bulb

Is that all good for seedlings?

I know i ask daft questions but need other opinions :?

I've heard of people building insulated boxes around them I think

If the noise is coming from vibrations then pad things up

At the hardware store you can find loads of different insulation materials..from fiberglass sheets, to styrofoam to foam insulations in a spray bottle and more
