Hello again everyone! Yes I am back and will be starting my new grow in 5 days. I have a new grow room a new setup and experience from my first grow. I'm ready to take this to the next level. I now know I only like sativa strains, so all the plants I am growing are sativa dominant. I will be letting a few plants grow naturally and the others I will LST. I will hover be FIMing or Toping every plant.

As off now I am growing these strains.

3 Buddha Haze
1 Purple Haze.
1 Cali Orange Bud (left over seed)
1 Trainwreck

Soil: Fox Farm Ocean Forest (Grow Big Nutes)
Light: (2) CFL fixtures with 4 cfls each 150w 6500k, set on timers 18/6
Using tap water thats sat out for at least 24hrs with a ph of 6.5
Panda film to keep light in and a single fan on medium

I will be starting out germinating these seeds using the paper towel method.
I will then transplant half in soil using this mix
bottom half: perlite:
middle: 50/50 mix perlite soil
top: all soil

The other half will start out in rockwool.

I hope you guys check in on my new grow, it will hopefully way way better then my first grow :Hookah:

Ok my friends here we go!!! I got the light fixtures all set up with 2 more on the way and I have 3 of 6 seeds in germination. I have a good friend installing all new electrical lines to each fixture and will also be building 1 grow room box and 1 dark room box. Also to try something a bit new I will be cloning a few plants and decided to breed some so I don't have to keep buying so many seeds :)

Also I will be adding to additional seeds to the mix. 1 Auto Diesel and 1 Big Band.

Ok so its been a few days and all the seeds popped :) I planted 2 a day ago and one of them today. The two which are Cali Orange and Diesel have already broke the surface. Also I have a new pic of a temp grow room until my other room gets all the electric work finished.

Your babies are so cute! Cant wait to see how they do! :)
Thank you :welcome: I'm very excited to see them grow and become big beautiful plants. Hoping this grow will produce much more then my last one did, I figure with the help I will get and the knowledge I have obtained that these babies will be in good hands :)

Ok so what Ill be doing is having a picture update everyday or every other day while the plants are still young. This way you can see the rapid growth, or if there is something that goes wrong you might be able to help men figure out what is wrong :)

Once They get to about the 6th set of nodes I'll be taking pics once a week. Anyway here are the pics for today.

Ok so here is this mornings update, everything is moving along nicely. There is a little bit of stitch going on that I have noticed not sure why since they are only about 2" under the light, but nothing to be concerned about. I'm giving them water almost everyday not a lot but enough to keep the soil moist and will spread out the watering by weeks end so the roots really start to stretch for water and get a good grip in the soil.

Ok so I have a question for you guys I remember seeing something like this before, but can't remember exactly what it is.

Almost everyday I notice the leaves on all the plants are pointing straight up. Does this just mean they're searching for light? Also does anyone know when its ok to start adding molasses into the water feeding?

Ok so here is todays picture update. Some news though, the buddha plant got to close to the light and burnt a few leaves, I have also noticed that the buddha strain itself is not that strong, I have already lost one but there is another on the way and they might just surprise me. Cali Orange is the strongest so far with diesel in second, Diesel is healthy but not as big as I wish she was.
