Well it's time to start this journal off finally. I have yet to germinate any seeds but they have arrived so thank you very much to the sponsor of this Comparative Grow, @Weed Seeds Express, I know the shipping must have cost a fortune. I also have two more sponsors for this grow. Mars Hydro has been generous enough to offer to send me one of their new FC-4800 lights for my 3' x 3' tent. And I will be trying for the first time a nutrient line created by another of our sponsors @Prescription Blend. They sent me one of their complete Nutrient kits which are available on Amazon.

Here are all the details of what I will be doing this grow.

Seed Strain: Girl Scout Cookies Fem Photo By Weed Seeds Express
Grow Medium: Homemade Peat based soilless medium
Nutrients: Prescription Blend Nutrients Kit
Water: Well water with a PH of 7.2 out of the ground

Tent Size: 3' x 3' x 5' tall
Lighting : Mars Hydro FC-4800
Grow Pots: 5 Gallon Fabric Pots
# of Plants: 5 seeds will be germinated with the best looking four making the final cut.

I will be growing four of the GSC seeds each in their own 5 gallon fabric pot. Right now I am contemplating topping and some LST training but that will be dictated by the plants when they start growing.

While I am waiting for the grow light to arrive I thought I would share some information about the sponsored items gifted to me for this grow. Starting off with the Girl Scout Cookies Feminized Photo seeds from Weed Seeds Express.


Here is a link to the Weed Seeds Express web site which has some classic and new strains available for sale.

Now I would like to talk a bit about my next Sponsor @Prescription Blend . I'm pretty set in my ways with regard to nutrients, so when Prescription Blend asked if I would be interested in testing their nutrient line during this comparative grow I had to do a little research. I did my due diligence and read all I could find on their product and felt confident it will grow pretty plants. Everything is there for it to be successful. Take a look and see if you're not enticed to give it a try. From what I have been able to determine the kit they sent me will make right at 100 gallons of nutrients. I snapped some photos for you guys and gals in no particular order.

If you have any questions at all about the Prescription Blend line of nutrients feel free to ask. Matthew from Prescription Blend Nutrients has promised to be available to answer any questions I might have as well as any questions you guys and gals may have.

Here is a link to the Prescription Blend web site. Lots of great information on their nutrients.

I'd like to follow your journal, too, beez.

I loved your first post and think it could be the first post for most of us.

The nutes look complicated to me but I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Hi Hash Girl, would love to have you following along. I should have mentioned the nutes come with a feeding chart showing how much of everything to add to a gallon of water at all the different stages of plant life from seedling to harvest. OH, and they send a separate pipette for each of the six ingredients so there is no contaminating the nutrients. I have numbered my bottles and pipettes 1-6 to help an old man remember.

@Prescription Blend ....Matthew I had a friend of mine who was reading through my journal text and ask me about your transition from the "Initial Growth" stage to the "Vegetative" stage. At what point on your feeding chart do we depart from the Initial Growth feeding levels and move on to the Vegetative stage feeding levels?

Hey beez,
Mind if I park my old bones propt in a corner somewhere? :48:
I think this will be interesting...new strain, new light, and upgraded nutrients.
Me too...same new light, seeds, and nutrients :meatballs:bigger space tho, different grow medium.
Only I think it will take a couple of weeks for my the seeds to arrive.

:goodluck:

Welcome @Furcifer always nice to have more old timers along for the ride. I'm in the US and my seeds took about 11 days to get here.
I'm in the states also, just received a tracking number on Friday.
11 days is good!
