  1. Warm Welcomes :wave:

    As a noob I wanted to open my VERY FIRST GROW up to the forums to document and to obtain as many helpful tips, advice, and any insight possible from such a diversely knowledgeable community! Starting off with a few clones to get my feet wet in hopes to gain knowledge & experience;which will hopefully ease the attempts of my next mission... Growing from seeds :blink:

    They seem to be adapting to the new environment well. There was slight discoloration on the tips of the ANL due to the position of the light being too close & drooping/curled leaves due to over overzealous watering.

    Now the journey into the first grow has begun!

    Suggestions, Tips, Advice, & Knowledge are all welcomed :hello:

  2. right on man, seems like youve done some homework looks good,
  3. Yes Ive been building this up for a while, hopefully it goes well!
  4. just dont over warter and be easy on the nutes! LET THE GROW BEGIN!
    So the girls have begun to perk up since the over watering & lighting with the ANL almost all reaching 9inches & the GSC heading toward 6inches! Decided to introduce name tags into the mix for easy identification and am now thinking about topping the ANL to keep the height down & insure a fuller bush.

    Here's a few updated shots:

  6. Looking good!   Can't wait to see your journey with LEDs.   I've been thinking about building a set for supplemental lighting around the edges of my tent.  
    Best of luck! 
  7. Thanks so much! Yes Im stoked to have the LED's so much less of a hassale...

  9. Thanks Man! Im trying my hardest to make it work out great.
    BTW I friggin love your signature SO TRUE!!!
  10. wow looks awesome!
  11. :cry: :cry: :cry: So the girls are starting to get yellowing on the leaves. While I looked up the causes and have seen my coloration is equal to that of potassium deficiency I am looking for any helpful info that aid with the flushing of the soil. I saw the the addition of lime to the soil or Big Bloom & flushing will solve the problem but anyone know of anything better?

    Here's a few pics:
