DeanB's Winter Grow In Progress

Hi and welcome to my boring journal. I don't have any fancy equipment or special soil or exotic nutes. My grow box is a closet with movable shelves. I have one small 2 speed fan up high in the back corner pushing air out the closet. The lights are 23w cfls and are mounted from corner to corner of the closet. I'm using 45 deg. adapters for 10 lights total in the string, i also have 6 more cfl's around the lower parts of the closet.

The 3 plants are bagseed from mexico, they are in one gallon pots with promix and soil i dug up out of a field nearby. The nutes i use is what I've been able to find that includes MG African Violet Food 7-7-7 and Magic Roots 9-48-13. I water with RO water and occasionally get some rain water to use. I don't have a ph pen anymore, it just drove me crazy anyways. I added some dolomite lime to the mix to help.

2 plants have been growing for 8 weeks of veg and the other for about 5 weeks. I flipped to flower on the 26th and now waiting. They are all girls and crammed into a small space, I haven't done any trimming yet and could use some advice as to what to trim up and whatnot.

Thanks for checking it out!
:welcome:

Here's some pics to get started...with more to follow.

Hey Dean, id let it go through stretch before i would trim. Once the stretch slows down and you have pistils showing youll be able to see if you need to trim.

You may want to back off on the nitrogen a bit, if you look the leaves look like their "clawing". They look good otherwise. [emoji106]

That one looks like she's been clawing like that early on. I'm thinking it maybe a slight imbalance of the dirt i dug up and the promix that needs watering at a different time than the soil. So the soil is staying moist and the promix with the peat in it is drying out first. Kinda looks like slight overwatering with the big canoe leaves. I've just been rolling with it, lol. I'll give them a round of regular ro water next time :thumb:

Thanks for subbing A1kane, I'm not sure when they showed their sex. If I don't see balls early on, then they are usually females, I do see hairs on 2 and pretty positive the 3rd is female.

Thanks, I was thinking the mix/ soil may have to much in the container she's in. Last watering was yesterday. RO water with some magnesium. I will give only water next time too.
