Very new to the scene. This is a grow test with 10800 lumen CFl(thinking of adding UFO 180 Led).... 5square foot closet.... FFOF only....Bag Seed.

I'm only looking for a successful 1st grow. Not concerned with bud size etc. I just want a successful grow. Pics are of 1 plant

I've read FFOF has nutes for 30 days. Its been about 24 days from seed. How does the plant tell me they need nutes?

What pot size should I transplant to 1 gal or 3 gal. Can I flower in 3 gal?

I didn't feed any of my plants until after 3-4 weeks since sprout, also make sure you transplant to a bigger pot in time, the roots require space to grow in, the bigger roots the better your plants will turn out like so make sure you do it before it's to late, i had 2 plants was my first ever they didn't grow big cause i had them in a small pot for to long, my other babies are loving the extra soil and they seem to stay healthy.

I personally use 3 gallon pots and works great for me! But make sure you don't mess to much with the PH when growing in soil, some soil mixes adjusts the ph itself!

You can flush them with clean water for 2 weeks and then try another mix of nutrients but make sure not to overdose.

Hope it helped! Want to know more then just ask! :cheer:

Mail came today, I saw a weird small yellow envelope. I was happy as a kid in a toy store. I just knew inside I was gonna find my KO and Blue Pyramid auto seeds I ordered. Instead I find a letter saying my seed were confiscated in NY!!! I may try another site but I may just call it quits. To make matters worse I"m all out of bag seeds. So successful or not on this grow it may be my last. Until I can find someone in the US to send me some exotic strain seeds.

Haven't updated in about a week. Good news is I haven't killed my good ole fashioned bag seed yet.

Subbed. Looking great. Believe I see a male plant there. Just my opinion, someone else may chime in just to confirm or give there own opinion. As far as soil ph. Did the bag of mix say anything about it maintaining ph levels. If not you need to adjust. Proper ph levels for soil need to be around 6.3to 6.9. Don't be afraid to ask questions, people will come I promise. Other than that looking great. Do you have a line of ferts lined up yet. One more thing sorry about your seeds getting snagged up. Stay positive and have paitence.

This is a learning experience. I've decided against ordering seeds again. Currently I'm growing about 6 dixie cups to determine sex of my bag seed. Once I find a female I will clone and put what I've learned not to do so far into action. I've also gone dwc. Trying to follow hydrohybid's tutorials.

As of now I'm using two setups. My plan is to use soil for one plants and dwc for two plants. I start off the first 3-4 weeks in soil, then convert to hydro. Right now the biggest issue for me is to find a female plant. Thanks for all the advise, I may need it because I torture the plants in soil. I had no idea that hydro nutes and soil nutes were different. Will post pic later

Looking great. Anyway you can get a shot of some leaves. Some look slightly curled, and dark in color. She's huge. Great looking plant.

Just took a second look. Get the small leafs off the top of soil. Never leave leaves that have deficiency s on the medium. I see Brown spots on leaves. Look like a boron deficiency. I believe this is the term. Have you used any cal/mag.

These are two females are clones of the plants I planted way back in June. Both were about the same size when I transplanted them into dwc buckets. The first plant is under cfl's while the second plant is under 180w led. The cfl plant has almost out grown my closet space. I had to remove a light because the top of the plant was growing into it. The led plant for whatever reason is not growing as tall. I need a way to stop the top of the plant from growing any taller.
