    Refers Random Bagseed-First Grow Ever-2009

    High Everybody!

    This is my first grow so I thought I would share it with all of you out there. I was given 4 starter plants that were only a few days old from a good friend. They were streched out about 4 inches and only had the first 2 little leaves on them. So, I went out and got 2 23w=100w soft white cfls and a spliter so I only needed to use one light socket. I also "installed" one of those aluminum foil baking pans as a reflector above the lights. I don't have much money so for now they are in a large box that is big enough to keep them in for a few more weeks. Also, the box is pretty much sealed except for a small hole in the front where I have a small 6" fan blowing into the box. I have had them for about 2 weeks now and they are showing lots of progress. I took them out of the dixie cups they were in and transplanted them into 4 5"w x5"w x 5"h plastic pots. The soil I am using is MG potting mix with the 3 month nute release. I know this is not the best but its all I could get at the time. Also I plan on getting the Fox Farms nute 3 pack later on down the road. I will have pictures up as soon as I find the cable to connect my camera to my computer. If anyone has any advice I would be more than happy to hear it. Thanks

    DAY 14

    Alright I got a way to put up pictures! They are from my phone so not the best quality. This picture is just to show the box they are in. The reflector is a aluminum foil baking pan and the light is a desk lamp with a spliter and 2 100w cfl soft white bulbs. And on the right side of the picture is a clock with a thermometer and hydrometer. I don't know how accurate it is.

    Now all of these pictures are from my camera phone. I have a nice camera but can't find the wire to connect it to my computer. I'll get one soon for some nice pics.

    This is the runt. And don't mind the joe pesci movies. I'm just using them to raise and lower the height of the plants.

    DAY 14

    Alright so thats all the pictures I got for now. If anyone has any helpfull information for me I would be more than happy to hear it. I can use all the help I can get. Right now my main question is about the leaves curling up at the edges. The box temp seems to stay around 85 F and the humidity is staying around 60-65% But again, I don't know how accurate my therm/hydro clock is. Thanks in advance for any comments and advice. And more and better quality pictures coming soon...

    Nice for first

    How often do You water?
    How Dry Do you let them get before watering is the soil still wet?

    You will need to up the size of your pots .. when you do, try to get
    Foxfarm or Happy Frog.. if not .. mix in some perilite and peat moss
    to help with drainage. I stay far away from MG.

    keep it up!

    Thanks JustAddWateR. Figures that the first question you ask is about my watering habbits... And thanks for your concern. I have been watering about every 2-3 days depending on how dry the soil is. I don't let the soil get bone dry, but I wait untill the top inch or so is almost all dry. Also, I don't think I'm getting good drainage. I pour a good amount of water in and don't see it coming out of the bottom. hmmm... And i figured as soon as I make their next grow space I will increase the pot size. Most likely move up to 3-5 gallon pots. Just so I don't have to transplant again. And I'm looking into ordering FF soil for the finial transplant. Along with FF 3pk nutes.
