Brand new at growing

  1. Hey y'all. Looking for some advice and I've been readin threads all day and I have to say I'm lost. There is so much terminology I'm clueless about and I didn't realize how in depth a grow could get. A friend gave me a few seeds and they've been growing for about 6/7 weeks now. I noticed some weird looking hairs and from what I gather they are pistals, can anyone confirm. Any advice you think would be beneficial would be appreciated. TIA. Happy toking.

  2. The first grow is almost always a fail, but your's looks better than my first did. I'm going to do you a huge favor and give you my entire grow schedule.

    - Get seeds or clones
    - INDICA: Grandaddy Purple, Critical Kush, Death Star
    - HYBRID: Pineapple Express, Girl Scout Cookies, White Widow
    - Place seeds in water overnight until they germimate, or dip stems of clones in cloning gel
    - Fill a bucket of water and drop PH down solution in it until the PH is 4.5
    - Place rockwool cubes in the water overnight
    - In the morning check if the runoff water has a PH of 5.5 (if it is between 5.5 and 7 then repeat the soaking process)
    - If the PH is over 7 then soak the rockwool cubes in a phosphoric acid solution with a PH of 4 for 30 minutes then redo the original soaking process
    - Place germinated seeds or clones in the prepared rockwool cubes
    - Water the plants with water PH'ed at 6.5
    - Put a humidity dome over the cubes and place the dome under 2700k lights
    - After a few days throw out seeds that have wimpy stems, leaves, and roots, and throw out clones that haven't rooted properly
    - When the seeds have their first real pair of leaves and Place the rockwool cubes in smart pots filled with super soil
    - Place pots in a grow room receiving 18 hours of light a day, and 6 hours of darkness, receiving a temperature of 70 degrees, holding a humidity of 50% RH, and receiving 60 watts per square foot of light.
    - When plants get stronger start to supercrop
    - When plants are near their maximum height (closest recommended distance from lights), but have nor quite reached it top or FIM them up to two times
    - When leaves become yellow, cut them off
    - When the plants are late into veg, lollypop the bottom third of the plant
    - When the plants have 25-50% of their maximum height give them three days of darkness
    - Set the grow room to give the plants 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, 70 degrees of heat, a humidity of 50% RH, and 60 watts per sqaure foot of light
    - Trim leaves when they yellow or die and save them if they have trichomes
    - In week 3 of flowering, pinch an eighth of a inch of the tips of the buds and give them 10 to 14 days to recover. Repeat as much as needed
    - Set the temperature to 60 when the plants are a few weeks from harvest
    - Havest sativas when the trichomes are mostly cloudy or half cloudy with almost no amber heads
    - Harvest hybrids when 30-40% of trichomes have amber heads
    - Harvest indicas when 50-70% of trichomes have amber heads
    - Harvest extra potent medical strains when 80-90% of trichomes have amber heads
    - Cut off 16 inch bud stems, and trim lazily while leaving the flowers on the stems
    - Wash stemmed bud in a 5 gallon bucket of lukewarm water with 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of lemon juice flowed by a 5 gallon bucket of warm water, and finish the cleaning with a 5 gallon bucket of cold water
    - Wait 24 hours then trim bud (still on stem) very well.
    - Hang stems upside down in a dark room with a temperature of 65 degrees, a humidity of 50% and with a circulating fan inside for 5 to 15 days
    - When the bud feel slightly crunchy on the outside, the smaller stems snap instead of bend, and the buds pop off the stems, the weed is ready.
    - Separate buds from their stems
    - Do a final trim/checkup on the buds and put them in glass mason jars filled 2/3 full in a dark room with a temperature of 65 degrees and a humidity inside the jars of 60-65% RH (put a small hygrometer in the jars)
    - For the first 3 weeks open the jars and let the flowers sit outside for a few minutes
    - If the buds are wet (more than 70% RH) let them sit outside the jar for a day
    - If the buds are moist (65-70% RH) open the lid of the jar for two hours while mixing the bud around every so often
    - If the bud is dry then you are good
    - If the bud is brittle (under 55% RH) then leave it alone or rehumidify it with a humidipak
    - Cure as long as needed and enjoy
