Hey I’m trying to start a grow journal or just a post for some advice but it’s telling me I have insufficient priveledges ??
You are most likely trying to post in a forum where new threads are not permitted, or where only Mods may post.

Here's where to start a journal - Journals in Progress
Here's where to ask a question - Frequently Asked Questions

Any problems, don't hesitate to shout. :Namaste:

Can one have 2 journals going at once? I have a cbd seed that I want to maybe run a mini hydro setup in a solo cup or do something else weird with... lol But currently have my main grow ongoing.
Yes as long as they not for the same thing, I had a couple going at once as different strains and stages going at the same time.

Journals in Progress

Just start a thread in that section linked above (Journals in Progress), there is no template for them. Link I gave before just gives you ideas of what makes for a better Journal, but again one can do it however one wants to.

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.

There are many journals hosted on 420 Magazine. You increase your potential number of subscribers when they can immediately determine the strain and grow method - right from your title.

Consider putting as much of the following information as possible to start the thread with.

What strain is it?
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages?
Is it in Veg or Flower stage?
If in Veg... For how long?
If in Flower stage... For how long?
Indoor or outdoor?
Soil or Hydro?
If soil... what is in your mix?
If soil... What size pot?
Size of light?
Is it aircooled?
Temp of Room/cab?
RH of Room/cab?
PH of media or res?
Any Pests ?
How often are you watering?
Type and strength of ferts used?

This info will make it much easier for accurate help to be given when needed and keep the members interested in your grow.
