Any questions feel free to ask! Also check out my hydro grow still going on in my signature!!

Here is the start of my 2 clones! :circle-of-love:

Ok everyone we are now caught up! Today was the transplant to 5 gallon smart pots! I watered them yesterday to get them ready today. I believe this was the perfect time to transplant as you can see the in the root picture. Only one or two roots started circling the bottom and the soil held together great!

I will be keeping them in this box until my hydro grow finishes if possible! They are a little packed lol..


Left a little room on top so i can top with a little more soil and also a layer of Sand and have enough room for watering.


I'm still haven't b tried cloning yet a little intimidated by it maybe I'll try it I got all the stuff just haven't had enough balls to try how hard are they to keep going while the roots are coming

Cloning wasn't that bad... I really want to do a aerocloner as i believe that will be the best way to clone. I took cuttings while 2 weeks into flower so that was kinda against me also. Out of 6 clones in rockwool 3 grew roots and i took the strongest 2. I had tried just water cloning while i was in veg but none of those took... Just dont let the rockwool dry out!

subbed ! great start congrats on the clones keep upp the great work ! i would do some training to those clones in a couple days say a week after the roots settle in there new 5 gal smart pots if u plan on flowering under cfls ! #LST #PCE
Welcome everyone! geturgrowon I believe im going to do a scrog with these two plants. I still have not decided. Right now i have a 4ft tall and 4 foot wide hydro Papaya under CFL's. Im not to worried as i can surround the plant with over 550 actual watts of CFL's. But i would like to try LSTing at some point. Thanks for the tips!

Any tips and comments please let me know guys! First soil grow!

hey np iv worked with cfl i would go with scrog u will regret doing it trust me ! would be the way to go. and lst is a must for scrogging good luck if u have any question let me know !
i stopped useing cal mag. why? i have lots of ca in my water here. i use pure mg, from mixing one tsp or so, of epsom salts, into a qt of warm water, to dissolve. then, ad this to total of one gallon water. should not need to do this very often. perhaps ounce in veg, ounce in flower. many nutes feature ca in their makeup....i was using dynagrow before i recently stopped. it has it all in it, and is very economical to use. and, one part, with a silicon additive. it is complete. why hassel with all the different crap? the nuted on the shelves of the store, and made to draw US IN, not the plants.
subbed. like the clone chamber perfect size for the closet grower
Ok guys update time!! A lot of new tops and growth. I did film the tops of these plants around 1 week ago. You can see the two new tops are coming along great! Im ready to get these guys some more light!! They are for sure needing it now. Around last week i would have put at least 12 CFL's on these girls but i dont have the resources to do so right now.



nice looken girls there .... look forward to watching their progress
