Here we go.
Grow #1
Early last spring I was given 4 seeds of an unknown strain.
Although I have grown lots of veggies and flowers , never grew cannabis.
I popped those 4 seeds into small plastic containers with my Favorite potting soil and put them in my greenhouse .
2 sprouted and I watered sometimes for about a month.
They grew about 8” & 12” , spindly as heck and I transplanted to one of my veggie beds next to some sunflowers.
All I did to those plants was straight water from the tap .
I harvested both in Oct and ended up with 12 full jars of an excellent sativa.
Go figure. This is easy right ?
Grow #2
During the winter , I sort of set up a grow room and started 8 unknown seeds.
Long story short , I did about everything wrong , for inside grow , that you could do.
I ended up with a male early and then a bunch of hermie plants 3 weeks into flower.
2 jars of poor quality buds.
Grow #3
I joined this group
I ordered feminized seeds from a reputable source in Canada .
Nirvana Aurora Indica. Barney’s Farm Amnesia Lemon . Afghan Kush / White Widow .
The seed distributor sent me a white widow for free. It did not germinate
Set up the grow room ( 4’ x 8’ x 7’ ) w/ BestVA Led light / power 1000w.
I just added 2 ea 4’ strip LED 60 w.

I water only and up pot the Indica and Amnesia on 4/28 Day#7.
On 4/30 Day #9 , I up pot the AK/ WW and dump the WW & one of the AK/ WW .

Hi Senior Moments!

Welcome to 420 Magazine :welcome:

Your garden looks fantastic! No yellow, no burn, leaves are standing up nicely. In soil you don’t really have to adjust ph and since you are on private well water no need to worry about chlorine or chloramine. Glad to see plants up on pallet, killer move there that will pay dividends. Just wanted to drop in & say hi.

I dropped a journal here called Visualize Whirrled Peas,

stop by and bang a gong... err, uhm - I mean stop by and hit a bong.

Ok dude, I’m not the grow master by any stretch. I’ve read this often but not sure I can articulate it properly. Your soil has its ph regulated by the lime added in by earth mix. if your water ph was a consistent 4 or steady 9 yeah it would be bad but the 7.5 well water gets adjusted by the ph of the soil. You can dump gallons of water & never mess with soil ph or the difference would be minute or negligible.

However your plants look REALLY great so maybe tell me to shut the frig up & twist another one!!!

Nevermind there’s a twisty already on table.

No shit - they do look stellar man!! Follow your gut & the Fox Farms feed chart.

Sometimes I get senior moments because I started hydro & failed big time, switched to soil and FF nutes then migrated to supersoil / living soil / true living organic concepts where it’s a water only soil or water + fish ferts, or earth worm casting tea. I might top dress with some ewc, little epsom or bone meal depending on stage.

Thanks for stopping by over there!!!
