First Grow, Ryn0nTX: Critical Mango, Ebb 'N’ Flow, 2020


Well-Known Member
Starting my first grow and journal. I look forward to hearing from all of you! I enjoy smoking occasionally, however I am more of a whiskey man myself. I am venturing out with growing my own simply so I can produce my very own RS oil. I have severe back problems and a good OTC CBD oil works well, but it’s expensive. So I am looking for more potency and cost savings (long run).

I am starting my journal a bit late, currently in the middle of week 3

Here is what I have……..


Strain: (3x) CBD Critical Mango (Critical Mass/Mango)
Strain Type: 30% Sativa, 70% Indica
Percentages: 6% THC / 6% CBD
A fourth plant that was a bag seed. No clue what it is but thought it would be fun and I had the room.

Grow Setup

Reminds me of my set up 20 years ago. Looks good :thumb:
Thanks! I've been experimenting with aeroponics and had really good results with cucumbers and tomatoes. It seemed that the ebb and flow would be a little less maintenance. Once I install the Mars led's they will be in the middle of the room...or at least off the walls.
UPDATE: So apparently I found a week somewhere! I was off on the dates. Theses girls came out of their seed on 3/15/20. This is when I planted them in the rapid rooters and placed them in the germination tray/dome. on 3/28/20 I moved them to the dutch buckets and started feeding them. Prior to that they only had RO water.

So we are on day 20 (since the tap root busted out). I was told that they were very small on another thread. He posted a pic of his plant at 3 weeks and it was quite a bit larger. Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology when saying how old they are/what stage they are in? It didn't help that I said they are nearly three weeks old in the thread when they were truly only 15 days :nerd-with-glasses:

I'm going to post some updated pics in a bit. They are looking great!
