Hi all, this is my first grow in years and im doing it as cheap as possible with just the basics so its sort of an experiment to see where i go from this grow.
grow room is a cupboard 3 ft square and floor to ceiling,
this is as far as ive got so far, i need as much advice as i can get so jump on and keep watching, i need to get the most yeild from this so deciding what to do such as scrog or basically anything, throw me some ideas,
DAY1, soaked both big bud seeds in kitchen roll,
DAY 3, both seeds sprouted and transfered to pots. also soaked both northern light and special kush, wasnt going to grow these yet but couldnt resist so they went in soak today. increased lights to, 4 x 6700 kelvin 30 watt cfl and 2 x 2700 kel for broader spectrum, will be increasing watt size to 40 watt or 45 watt when they turn up, 30 watt cfl gives off 150 watt of light, although i doubt it really compares with the real wattage so will be loading up on cfl's as and when needed, using mixture of both cfl for veg, but for flower is it best to only use 2700 k or can i still use mixture but mainly use 2700,.
DAY 4, both bb are pushing out soil and seed casings are off, no change to special k and nl x bb as of yet.
DAY 5 special k sprouted no change on nl x bb. special k is now in pot under lights.
DAY 7 both bb sprouting leaves now, long stem though so lowered lights, hardly any heat so lowered to withing just over an inch from the plants, special cush sprouted soil and shed shell, nl x bb now under lights
DAY 8, both bb are growing first proper leaves and plants look really healthy at this point, special kush growing slightly crooked, bb x nl, still sprouting.
DAY 9, rearranged grow room and made lights more secure and easier to raise and lower, i turn my back for 5 min to fit new light fittings and cable and when i return 1 bb plant has lost all its leaves, i take one look at the dog n he has got a bright green leaf stuck to his mouth so he cant say it wasnt him, looks like ive lost one of my plants to the dog, not pulled the stem out of pot yet just in case by some slight miracle it picks up and grows, now theirs hoping,
please give me all the advice you can, i will do my best to update this at lease once a day or every 2 days, im in it for the long hall, so the more of you that help the better my plants will be, n keep it real, 420 all the way
