I just bought some of these seeds and don't know what to expect, please keep me updated. This strain is also my first grow so I'm really interest.

So far, two sprouted. Three lost to my amateur-hour decisions on germination.

Middle of week 1 of seedling.


Looks like the first set have some spots. Sun burn??

I read that having the LEDs too close will slow down vertical growth so, I moved it up to 24". Both babies seem to be taking well to the soil but I plan on repotting with FF Ocean... if I make it there. Feedback welcome. Please!!! [emoji1417][emoji1417]

They are looking good. I'm growing in fox farm also, but my light setup is a 400w MH/HPS. Are you planning on doing any LST? I have scrog net ready but I don't know if should use it for my first grow.

This is my seedling at day 4
Looking great!!! I most likely will begin LST at the 4th set of true leaves (which look like they're coming soon!)

This is as of this morning, end of week 1/beginning of week 2.

Oh! I keep forgetting to ask, what size pot are you using and how long are you planning to keep it in the vegetative stage?
Right now I have each one in a quart sized pot. Not very large. Will be repotting into 5gal round pots after the 4th set of leaves pop out.

My goal is to keep the plants going through at least 6 weeks of veg. Since it's my first grow, I probably won't FIM or do any supercropping until I get a solid grip on this first grow.

I'd rather have moderately okay nuggets that I grew the right way, than have some stressed out hermie or worse...

a wise man once said "he who never made any mistakes has never tried anything new."
Me personally would try some topping at least ... with 6 weeks of veg that would make a superbush ... but please move at your own pace dont let randoms like me make you do something you dont want hehe

by the way that quote is from Albert Einstein ;)

edit: almost forgot the babies look nice!

Thank you for the wisdom. I'm totally open to trying some advanced techniques, just treading carefully.

I try to sift through the mountains of grow-knowledge on here... lots to digest!

I'm beginning to see the third set and fourth set forming at the center. Not seeing much stretch between the leaf sets. Wondering if I'm stunting growth due to the LED being too close... appx 18-20"...

Also, I'm considering the V-scrog method later on once I'm closer to week 5 of veg.

Updated shots of the babies including zoomed in pics.

Curious about the growth near A and B labeled below. I'd appreciate any feedback. This is middle of week 2 I believe... unless week one truly starts when the plant has 4 sets of leaves...

Really excited to start LST and I've been following Light Addict's advice of grooming the incoming nodes so they have more light. Very interesting thread.
