Hello all! As per your lovely recommendations as well as in need of advices and help.
I've "finally"(Ha! I just joined yesterday!) decided to start my grow journal.
I am running a 1000W full spectrum LED light from china with a big fan circulating air from right outside of the tent.
My tent is quite small standing at 70", 18" front to back, and 36" side to side.
Originally I thought this ma be large enough to hold 2 girls but now I am not sure.
I've decided to leave the fan outside as space inside the tent doesn't permit it as well as my tent is made out of thin fabric letting the fan air through.
Also the room outside of the tent is quite dark and I am growing an auto so if any light leak; it shouldn't be a big deal.
As you can see I have 2 girls, which are Pineapple Kush Autos planted directly into the soil.
I am using a local soil which is 100% organic and they used this soil to raise earthworms which apparently enriches the soil. Then they took older dead earthworms, grinded them up and mixed it with soil to further enrich it.
I've planted 2 P.K.A.s directly into the soil on10/03/18 just before midnight and bigger one sprouted on the 10/07/18 by the time I checked in on the morning. However 2nd one didn't sprout at all. So on 10/12/18 around 09:45 am I decided to dig the seed out and germinate the said seed and an extra seed (I've received total of 3 P.K.A. seeds as a gift) in case the seed was a dud.
10/13/18 21:30 I notice the original seed out of the pot is building hairy mold but yayyy! The 3rd seed has germinated with strong taproot. I plant the seed into a same size pot as the 1st one.
10/14/18 10:00 an the 2nd one has sprouted!! Making it almost full week behind her older sister.
By now the older girl has her first node and I start to give her nutes at quarter of recommended strength.
I am using Japanese brand with 7-10-6 NPK. Also not usinflg yet but during flowering I will be using same brand's flowering helper with NPK of 0-6-4 then just water and blackstrap molasses towards the end.
Now it's 10/29/18 and this morning I noticed slight curl in one of the leaf, as well as some discoloration(??) in some of the leaves.
Can someone please tell me if I should be worries about this?
Also until now, against many many researches and guides I've read. I have pushed aside checking Ph level of water as "Oh, I am just doing this as a light hobby" but as I grow the girls and my passion for the girls and growing grows.
I have decided to order a temp/humidity monitor as well as a Ph reader this week.
Phewww, that was a mouthful and a half! (That's what she said, sorry not sorry about it haha)..... Sorry.
Moving along, as you probably could tell. I've been keeping a hand written journal as I wanted to know what I did well or didn't do well in the grow.
I also have been writing down some of the awesome guides and tips as well as things I want to try during the grow in the said journal.
So yeah, please feel free to criticize and give me any advices you may have.
I will try to post and keep you guys updated regulrarly from here!
-thanks in advance guys!
