Hi all what I am doing here is showing everyone my first ever "real" grow in a kind of diary way. I will show what I am using, what I'm doing, the process start to finish and the end product. Ill start by explaining why I said real grow. About 2 years ago I found a seed in my smoke, I planted this into an upturned hairspray lid and fed it with babybio. I used my window in my bedroom and that's where it stayed. As it grew I transplant into a larger pot, not believing it to get to harvest wasn't really taking much notice. It was more of a talking point when people came round sortof thing lol. Imagine the surprise when I got a 1/4ounce at the end, really nice smoke as well. So on to the "real" grow This time I have got some lights,home made hood, timer, larger pot and babybio mutes. I planted my seed with no real idea that it would grow but it has. As it grows I will be updating my post so people can watch the process, as, I'm sure as many of you are like me and like to see a good story unfold throughout time. I am also hoping that during the time my plant grows people can add some input and advice to help me along. I will also add picture on a regular basis, say, once a month to start, when flowering possibly go to once every 2 weeks. My light at present is a cfl with equivalent output to an 85w bulb and in a weeks time I will be adding another one to give me a total of 170w. I intend to use these lights throughout, as the plant grows I will add an extra 3 more for the sides but not untilled it reaches atleast 2-3ft. My hood inwhich the light sits is made out of highly polished ally with a reflective return of between 90-95%. This is why I will wait till 2-3ft before adding the last 3 lights. My pot is circular with a 1ft diameter and 1ft deep tapering towards the bottom to 3/4 of a ft Grow medium is expensive shit from the local garden centre for tomato plant (my understanding is cannabis and tomato plant to be very similar to each other correct me if I'm wrong). My nutes are babybio (UK) great for vegatative state in tomato plants. during flowering stage move over to babybio citrus, which is good for all plants during flowering or fruit production state. I'm using just under half strength solution at the moment which it says 10 drops per 1 litre, I'm using 5 drops per 1.25 liters. I will increase to 7-8 drops after 6 weeks, but that will be it for the rest of the veg state. As far as the timer goes I'm starting with 18/6, after main stage of growth is achieved and just before flowering ill be dropping to a 16/8 for a week, then to a 14/10 for another week, and finally ill drop to the 12/12 for full flowering stage. I believe this will provide the least stress and get it as close to nature as you can when providing artifitial care to a plant. If you have any doubt or think this is a Google idea please let me know. Finally the bit you've all been waiting for, I shall now add my first set of picture and await replys on the early stage of my progress. please If you have anything to offer do add a post, as this is my first proper grow and I would really like some help and advice.
