Last year I met a guy from my dad he was like 65 a old war vet. He showed me his grow he had about 15 plants he was using some type of soilless he taught me how to make butter,lst,clone,and a few other things I would pick up here and there during are conversations,I just moved back to my home state got my own house and am ready to do a little grow box of my own,I planted 4 seeds that germinated yesterday morning and one has already sprouted thru the dirt

Good job setting a grow and having them germinate:high-five:
I would like to follow your grow and help out if I can
I think your set up looks OK to start out.
I would make sure there is drainage holes in your pots to prevent some big issues later on.When the roots fill up the bottom and sit in soggy soil they will rot and die.I have not done a scrog just some LST so I would suggest LowStressTraining too.

Ok yea I think lst is gonna be easiest until I learn a few more things,I have holes in the bottoms of my pots about 10 in each,do you think I'm going to need more light?

YOu can grow from start on 12/12 hours for the fastest harvest. For bigger plants I would grow them a bit more.I use 18/6 hours but you could go less of 16/8 or even the GLR method.
I think for a scrog you would set up a screen and fill it up some before flipping to 12/12.
My LST training uses pipe cleaners to tie down branches to the pot trying to get a bunch of equal height toppers.Either method thats what you want is all your tops to be equal hieght to recieve equal light for a better harvest.

closetorganic what do you use for nutes if any?
I use dry fertilizer and also homemade compost and worm castings.
I have been lucky just floating through grows reusing this soil for like 3 years. IN the beginning I started out with General Organics and had more issue than now. this a picture of them with the mycohizzae in the middle which I use at each transplant by sprinkling in contact with roots

The ferilizer is ammended in the soil before transplant so I all I do is water them.
