I'm new to this forum and new to growing so i thought i would make my first post about all my trials and tribulations thus far.
I fantasized researched growing for a number of years but still lived at home so it wasn't practical. Pretty much immediately after moving into a place of my own i began growing in my closet.
Here's the setup.
*MG garden soil
*CFL 6500k 23w 1600 lumens
And that's it.
Just a few days after sprouting i noticed signs of nute deficiency ( purpling of leaves etc..). So i hit the forums and did a little research and quickly realized that i didnt know as much about growing as i thought. I mean i knew enough to keep a plant alive but after visiting the various sights i saw that there was a whole community of people out there who are on the verge of master gardener/mad scientist.
To say that it all inspired me would be an understatement. I had learned enough to get my baby out of that nasty MG soil so i went and got a real simple peat moss and perlite mix and cheap liquid fertelizer. Here she is, just about a week old and freshly transplanted.
After learning that my knowledge of cannabis cultivation was less than acceptable i kind of went mad with researching. I would spend all hours of the night on every forum imaginable, downloading gardening apps on my phone.....i was obsessed. The plant had been growing for about a week and was growing great but in my quest for knowledge i quickly discovered DWC, And everything changed. I got online and found the nearest hydroponic store and bought some FF and a few other essentials. A quick trip to the hardware store and the pet store and i was good to go. i built a 5 Gal. dwc bucket with a 25 gal air pump and transplanted the little trooper for a second time. This time was tricky because i had to get as much soil off the root mass as possible before putting it in the Dwc system.
Right after transplant.
Watered from top until roots appeared through mesh pot.
Just 6 days after moving to DWC!
The rest of the grow was pretty much a breeze.
Thats all for tonight. Ill finish this tomorrow night.
I'd love to answer any questions and i welcome constructive criticism. Thanks for following along so far
