Hi elgodo

I am in the UK too. (Assuming this is London UK, of course. I mean, there's a New York in England; tiny little hamlet, blink and you miss it.) I shall be following your grow with interest and hopefully learning from it as I am a beginner too. I think this is probably meant to go in the Grow Journals bit though (under "Grow" on the green bar) but I don't know how you would move it; maybe just copy it into the New Journals bit there? Just screwing up the nerve to start a grow journal myself, so I was checking it out last night.

That is a lot of plants. Are they autoflowering? You have five 1.2x1.2 tents and 5 lights? The lights you chose will create a lot of heat and use a lot of electricity. Is where you are doing this secure? What nutrients are you using? Did you already mix perlite with coco (not necessary). Do you have a PH meter and Up/Down?

I strongly recommend a grow journal. It helps enormously to track everything methodically. If you put it on this site, you will get some help. Have a browse. Grow Journals Good luck.:welcome:
