Hi everyone and welcome to my first Journal.

This is actually my second grow, my first grow went terribly wrong because i had no clue what i was doing. Temperatures were at 100 most of the time and other very bad mistakes etc.
Had 6 bag seeds that i started. 2 died and 3 went hermy and 1 was stunted pretty much the whole time.
I ended up yielding around 14 grams dry ( Dont laugh ) hehe

After my big fail at growing, i decided to start reading and reading. I went through atleast 100 Journals, watched videos/guides, everything. I even learned how to properly build a grow area.

Choosing a strain was very difficult but i decided to go for an Indica because my last grow was sativas that stretched so much and went out of control. Going through this whole site, i noticed that there's a strain that hasn't been Journaled before ( Atleast to my knowledge ).

I decided to go with Heavyweight Strawberry Cheesecake because i wanted to give something back to this awesome community, a strain that is not very popular..

are you doing a bene heisenberg tea weekly too?

I would say you have at least 3-4 weeks before it will be anywhere near flipping.

you want to account for the stretch too that you will continue to fill the net for 10 days or so from flip then you want to let em run to get some length to the buds for the remainder of stretch.

good luck. subbed from here on.

Thanks for subbing, would appreciate good advice along the way.. I think i will definitely be vegging for an extra month, i wanna try and get atleast 300 grams out of this grow. i have 800 Watts so i guess its possible. i also have HPS bulbs for the flip

Your grow is looking outstanding. I wish you the best..

Mr CO Finest, Pleasure to hear from you man. I actually followed your whole LED grow and watched your youtube video series. You actually do live up to your name. That was a monster of a plant that you had !

nice to hear that from a grower like yourself.

Cheers
