Hi everyone:ciao:... Well this isn't my first grow but I have taken the hobby back up more recently. I'm what you could say a new old grower or a old new grower. Depends on how you look at it. Anywho, I use to grow 20 years ago illegally like alot of people. Now that I'm older and a little wiser, I'm focused on the science of it and not the money. Oh yeah, don't worry.... It's all about the weed folks:snowboating: Now I've been encouraged by my fellow Albertans to fire up a grow thread and I thought... :hmmmm:why not... I have absolutely zero life and I love growing cannabis. Hell.... I'm in the right place:blunt: So I guess without further ado... THE DETAILS!!!
(Oh yeah, I'm using a template... Bare with me...)

Cant wait to see these weeds grow, I hope your Rockstar does not outgrow your 5 foot tent. I have heard that some pheno types for hybrids can take a bit more sativa and want to reach for the stars. Good Luck You New Old Grower. Lol

:thanks: I can't wait either. This rockstar seems to have the look of an indica and definitely withholds a potent indica THC :Namaste:

If your open to suggestions. I see it said thinking of changing. If you can get your hands on some 100% worm castings, (the bag I buy, is called “pamper your plants”) get that stuff. Buy a bag of perlite, and mix it 50/50. It’s a great growing medium for indoors. The worm castings I bought was at co-op or peavey mart. :thumb:

Definitely in it with you @CagedApe ! Thank you for your follow BTW. I'm excited to watch your ladies bloom for you and for the rest of us to drool all over our keyboards.

I make my own soil. Mainly because I like the process of making it custom and being able to experiment with different ratios. Plus I'm a cheapskate and hate paying for premixed bags. So I end up spending more and making my own... :laugh2: :rolleyes::confused:
There are so many ways to make soil. I like the feeling of getting my hands into the ingredients and start making your soil from scratch. After a while, you start seeing the ratios without having to measure.
Best of luck the rest of the way! :48:
