Similar to what I have seen with some other posts...I am also now starting a personal grow with the legalization passing in Michigan. I had been on the fence about getting started for almost 2 years. Legalization passing was all the go ahead I needed.
As the title states, this is my first ever attempt at growing. Any tips are GREATLY appreciated. I tried to educate myself as much as I could before starting my grow, but hands on is a whole different ball game.
I'm currently growing two plants. I only have one pictured here now but will upload the other soon. The plant pictured is a Super Auto Lemon Haze, from Original Sensible Seeds. The other plant (currently not pictured) is a Gorilla Glue Auto, from FastBuds Seeds.
I was unfortunately too strapped on a budget to purchase a grow tent for this first grow, so I have it set up in an unused closet measuring 5x3x8 (I have the top 3 feet blocked off, so realistically it's 5x3x5) I used foil to line the walls in order to add a reflective surface for the light. ( I know, sounds like an episode of Trailer Park Boys) I'm using a Phlizon 600W LED Full Spectrum light sitting aprox 14-15 inches above both plants. Using a small humidifier to keep RH at 52-55% and a small fan to keep air circulating inside the grow space. I will be installing a CO2 bag in one week. Temperature for the space stays around 71-78°F. Medium is a mix of Coco, LITE nutrient soil, and Perlite. Ratio of 60/30/10 in a 3 gallon cloth pot. When I say lite nutrient soil I mean, .85 -.05 -.10
Both plants are 11 days from germination. They received their very first nutrient feeding today. Very lite. 2ml CalMag, 1.5ml GH Micro, and 1.5ml GH Bloom in 1 gallon of water. So far I think everything is going well. The Goriall Glue plant looks a little thinner, and slower to develop. Seeing as how I only just started adding nutrients, and both plants have had identical conditions, I suspect it's just simply the genetics of the plant.
At any rate, let me know what you think, or if you have any questions!
