Hey, everyone. I'm a newb that's recently fallen in love with growing. I 'tried' to grow two plants in my bathroom last Winter and I caught the grow bug. Now I have a 2x2 grow tent on my dresser and the whole shebang. I'm forcing myself to keep a journal and I'd love to open myself up to the world of growers. Criticism, advise, suggestions, love, etc. It's all welcome. Let's start with a mission statement, and/or action plan, as it will provide a sense of what I hope to accomplish. Afterword's I'll talk about what I have going! I want to push the grow tent to it's maximum, utilize the amount of light we can distribute, maximize the space, and make every cent we spend on utilities count. That being said, the grow environment must remain organized, compact, and easy to move if need be. My intention is to experiment with different growing methods (pot size, nutrients, etc) and to grow multiple strains simultaneously via a SOG grow. This will enable us to learn which strains grow best indoors, which produce the highest yields, which produce the most terpenes, the most thc content, oils, etc. Lastly, I want this to yield at least 2 ounces a month perpetually, which is enough for us to have fun with on a constant basis without it ever becoming too much. I have two plants, both indica, a White Widow crossbreed called 47, and Private Reserve. They are in 3 gallon smart pots with a layer of clayton pebbles at the bottom, then a layer of coco, layer of soil, layer of coco, layer of pebbles, and a top layer of soil. I feed them every 2 1/2 days and use a A & B formula from Aquaflakes. I also use Calmag, Hydroplex, Big Bud, and Snow Storm Ultra. I'm using a Spectrum King 140w Closet Case: Best 100W LED grow light | Seed to Harvest - Spectrum King LED - plants are about 15" away from the light and I'm allowing the buds to grow up now. I'll raise the light if I have to. Currently doing a SCROG grow but I took cuttings to start a SOG for when these two are done. My girls are just finishing week 3 of flower. My clones aren't doing so good. I transplanted all of them as soon as I saw roots sticking out of the end in one of them. Mind you, I should have waited until each one was ready. Now two of them are hardly pulling through . I put them in the grow tent at night when the lights are on (not a lot of light under the canopy but some) and take them out and set them next to a Window during the day to give them close to 24hrs of light. They were under a humidity dome before I transplanted and were doing fine then. May have stunted them big time and/or doomed them. I also have 2 seedlings that sprouted (Moxie Seeds, Gogi Reserve) and are a week and a half old in solo cups. I have 4 more seeds germinating in a paper towel and I just planted 2 more seedlings in 1 gallon smart parts, Gorilla Glue Auto and Girl Scout Cookie Auto. When I do my SOG I hope to fill up every bit of space but test out different sized containers, so I'll be using a mixture of solo cups, a gallon smart pots, 2 liter coke bottles, and perhaps a tall 2 gallon. I also plan on keeping them stacked neatly in two 2x1 trays so I can take them out and move them around as I want. Let me know if you think this sounds crazy! Pictures coming shortly. Cheers.
