First grow and I want to get it right. Gonna post progress and problems here and hopefully get some good guidance and meet some good people along the way!
Sweet as a nut mateUp until now:
Started the seeds (which came from I love growing marijuana) a week ago in moist paper towels. The tap root popped out in just a little over 24hrs. I placed them in Jiffy pellets the next day. Only watered them twice this week because they seemed to hold moisture well. They sprouted the day after I put them in the jiffy pots. I was hoping to keep them in there a little longer but the roots were already coming out of the bottom and starting to poke through the sides so in the pots they went today. Oh....there are 2 plants for this grow. They were under 24 hr light for these first days. Switched to an 18 on 6 off schedule today. Plants are sitting comfortably at 67% humidity and 73 degrees F.
I’m not sure how they relate for sure. I’ll post some specs though. Haha. Just figured out how to do the media on here.
I plan to deviate from the fox farm feeding schedule a bit and follow the ratios that Asesino85 talks about in his current journal. I can’t use his PPM recommendations because he grows in coco but I don’t want to use the fox farm recommendations as well because they seem high. So I’ll try to get his ratios with these nutes and I’ll just have to start low on the PPM and go from there.Temp good, humidity good,schedule good....If your feeds are as good as those 3 you wont have any problems.
Great to have you ES. I hope it goes well. I’m hoping with the help of this community it will be a success.Looking good. I used Fox Farm in Coco on my last grow. I'm going to max out at 3/4 of their schedule next time. You are right, it seems a bit high. Tiger and Grow will send the ppm soaring. I had 12 plants and went through 2 quarts of Bloom. I also found a product called Flower Fuel that did an amazing job. Can't wait to see how this goes. It is on my list of strains to grow. Good Luck. ES
Yeah. It’s pulling right at 450w. Hope it does good in this space. I worry about the height of the plants. I’m gonna really have to stay on them. Gonna try a quadline for sure. Scrog maybe. Both would be firsts for me. But I know Blue Dream is a big girl. Maybe I can sweet talk her into staying short.On your light, go with the watts at the wall. Suggested watts by the company is all propaganda. In my opinion anyway.
You are correct most companies use 3 watt and 5 watt.
Take a look at my love gang if you want bro. Ive put the quadline into practice aswell (not as clean and even as @Asesino85 ) i aint gonna look back from now. Every photoperiod I plant is getting quadlined from now on!Yeah. It’s pulling right at 450w. Hope it does good in this space. I worry about the height of the plants.
