I am one week into my first indoor grow and I thought putting a journal up here may be beneficial for advice and comparisons. I have grown several seasons outdoors, but i am a complete noob at this indoor stuff. So please free free to correct any f*ck ups i may have and give any tips you see fit. Currently i have:
2-EasyRyder Autos in a native soil/Happy Frog/ Perlite mix
2-Easy Ryder Autos in a native soil/Ocean Forest/Perlite mix
1-Easy Ryder in pure Ocean Forest/Perlite
1- Crystal White in pure Ocean Forest/Perlite
1-Blueberry in pure Ocean Forest/Perlite
Like I said I am a week in now, but just to start from the beginning....I germinated by dropping seeds in water for 24 hours then planting directly in soil(100% success with this method). Within 24 more hours all 7 seeds had sprouted. I started out with them all under a couple of daylight T5 tubes. Now they are all in thier own 5 gallon buckets and under 60 watts each of CFLs. I have the autos under a daylight and a warm light each because ive read alot of conflicting info about what temp lights they like. I plan on adding more lights at 3 weeks, and double the wattage, then when i see flowers had planned on giving them 75% warm light 25% daylight. Any thoughts?
Also had yet to see anyone do autos in bigger than 2 or 3 gallon buckets, and if there is one thing i learned from outdoor growing its that these plants like thier space. So i decided to go 5 gallon and see what happens.
Since the Autos should be done in 60 days, i planted a crystal white and a blueberry that I will put on 12/12 after i chop the autos. As for now the whole garden is on a 20/4 light cycle, as i have seen some impressive auto grows on this schedule.
I will post pictures tommorow, thus far i am happy with the progress but would love some feedback.
