    First Grow - LR#2, LowBerry, Skunk.

    After along research and googling I`ve decided to do indoor growing. I got fed up when you get riped off or other herbs mixed in.

    So I bought:
    Lowberry, Lowryder#2 from Irish Seed Bank

    Skunk from WSS Skunk Feminized from the Weed Seed Shop. It was cheap so I tought it will be ok for the first time grower.

    I`ve decided to grow 2 Lowryder #2, 3 Skunk, 3 Lowberry. Started germination on 9th Of May - 2009.


    On 10th of May I`ve planted all of my seeds into a bass cut bottle ( with holes). Bit dissapointed that not all seeds succeeded. I think 6 of them cracked successfully and I then just planted them:

    They germinated quickly my room temperature was around 20~24.

    On 15th of May some of my plants were finaly visible:
    Skunk:


    and 2 good looking lowberries:




    Here are pics that were taken 16th Of May:




    Its weird that the stems are so long now, is that normal? I`ve started to grow them on my a week ago (10th - May) I will replant then and get lights soon, wasnt expected for such a fast grow.

    Welcome to 420 Green Villager, glad to have you here! Great to see you starting a journal. Interesting strain selection as well. I am also growing some AFs in my first indoor/hydro grow, after many years of outdoor cultivation, so I have a predisposition to checking in on AF grows. +rep for good luck!

    GV,
    Your plants are stretching for light.

    You need to get them under light or outside now. Also, if you plan to keep them indoors you need to lightproof those bottles. Roots and light are a bad mix.

    What type of soil are you using? It looks awfully wet. Overwatering+light on roots=root rot, and that'll put a quick end to your grow.

    Thank you SouthernWeed, I`m trying to set up lights cant find double 'adapter' to connect couple light bulbs.
    As for the soil, it was some random soil pack that i pick it up from local gardening centre.
    I watered before taking the pics

    I would add 25%-33% perlite (coarse if you can get it) to the soil.

    MJ wants a well-drained mixture that allows the roots to get oxygen (and, as mentioned, to help prevent root rot).

    It also likes to send a relatively deep taproot very early in life - fill your containers to the top instead of only using part of their capacity.

    Hello TortureSoul, allright. I shall try to get Perlite this weekend and some pots. I havnt decided what pots I need. I dont want to get "too small or too large".
    My plants are over week old. Should I wait for longer till they get stronger and re-plant them to a bigger pot (mixed with perlite)?
    Hope those 5 plants grow well

    Plants are growing fast. I`m not planning to spend money on "Cool" growing equipment, I`m just gonna grow them in Home Build Little GreenHouse (Day time temp 35C, trying to keep my bill low)




    I know, I have/use very basic set up. But hey it works well

    They do look nice. I agree, add some perlite to the soil. Also, you'll want to transfer your plants in to non clear containers. The roots will reach the edges of the cup in no time, and they hate light. Also, if you would please make sure all your photos are uploaded to 420 first before you put them in your journal. Just looking out for ya. ;-)

    Ms.Fox. All of my photos are uploaded on 420. ( check properties on those large image, and you will see it for yourself.) When I uploaded, the photo`s didnt show up in my album. So I just copied the original link, from where they were uploaded( so it doesnt have 420 logo and is large.) not on purpose m8 . I will add perlite when I will replant them.I`ll transver them to big pots, but not sure when. I`ll wait for a nother week. :]

    Thanks. Yes last 3 photos are large. I explained in Ms.Fox`s answer.
    And yes I do know how to resize photos. Original photos were 3 MB, luckily I compressed to 500kb keeping the same HQ(loads up fast, which is allways a good thing lol ).And like I said I just copied/pasted straight from 420 when I uploaded . Hopefully next time the photos will show up in my album straight a way and will get the "Medium" size photo URL with 420 logo.
    Btw.. I`ve read most FAQ, and other guides " how to grow MJ" here on 420. So I`ve learned alot, and know what I`m doing :P
    Thanks for stoping by
