With enough setup information in the beginning, your grow journal will be monitored and analyzed by master growers from all over the world. The more pride and effort you put into your journal, the more response, interaction and support you will receive from our members and staff.

First and foremost, please make sure to post your Grow Journal in the proper area for Journals In Progress.

Also, please make sure to use proper grammar and structure when choosing your thread title, your Name/Growing-Medium/Strain-Name/Year is a good start.

If your journal title is in your signature you can click on settings- edit signature, and change the name that appears in your signature. But the original journal name won't be changed. All post titles can only be edited by mods as far as I know.

Hello all
Is it possiable to rename a journal in progress?
Thanks in advance
Noo you cant ..once ur unable to edit the post it stays like that ..i wish you could cuz i also would like to edit my name of my journal aswell ..
You can change the journal title. Simply make a report (report button, bottom left of every post) from the first post in the journal, saying exactly what you'd like the new title to be. A Mod will attend to it.

Here I am again. I've been through some really tough Shight in my life but nothing like this past year to be sure. I've decided to get back into the Grow My Own top shelf healthy as well as potent Medical Marijuana. I wont get into what I've been through as that's for a whole other Forum eh. LMAO... I will say this though, "since I opened my seed jar and put half a dozen seeds out to germinate my mental health and anxiety all but diminished" If only I could do it all day Everyday. Thank Heavens soon I will be able to accomplish said goal once I'm licensed to Grow Medical & Recreational as well. :thumb: Now lets talk about The Green Hearted God Of Cannabis & how I've been Blessed
by said Entity. My Son also a Medically prescribed Medical Marijuana patient had purchased a half ounce of said Nuggage and as Fate/Karma as well as Mother Nature herself has seen to it that there was a Hermi Nug that produced one of the darkest and plump seeds that I've ever seen. As to be expected She is a Glorious Gal indeed. I'm going to be Cloning her to be sure as well as allowing her to fully Bloom to her maximum yield. I've NEVER Cloned anything in my life previously and will be looking for any and all help/advice available here on 420 (by far the Best place on Earth to connect with other Growers anywhere on our planet Eh) This Beautiful Princess has truly given me Purpose and Hope for much better days to come.:thanks: to any and all whom assist me in advance
