ok ok. check it out!!! this is my first journal on this site and to be quite honest i have a couple other threads on here. and i have gotten more advice and help on this site then any other. i currently have 3 plants that are just fun plants now that i started with out knowing what im doing. i now have the proper soil, lights, ferts, and nutrients. i have three new pots that are 9" deep with the premix soil by hydroponex filled to the top all the way to about an 1"to an 1 1/2" away from the top of the pot. i have flushed them once yesterday with ph based water. i am then going to flush it with a begining nutrient compound that a guy was telling me about at the local hydroponex shop. i have my play plants, so to say. they're underneath the grow light this guy hooked me up with and its a two foot light so i have my seed that are germinating underneath it too. i started to germinate the seeds on friday night. now keep in mind this in now sunday morning at 2:53 A.M. i have checked the seeds three times yesterday. and i have 5 of 8 seeds starting to sprout a root. i am going to wait until they get about 1" long then im going to go ahead and plant them in the soil. i am going to run the lights 24/7 for the first two weeks until the start to veg. i am going to go on a 5 day watering cycle until they sprout. once they sprout i am going to switch to an 8 day cycle based on what the plants tell me. like i said this is my first journal and one thing that i have read that pops out the most to me is that i was told in one of my threads that i need to take all the info in but tweak my process until i find the one that works best. EVERY ONE AND ANY ONE is welcome to leave comments on my process but keep in mind that this is my project. i would like to learn, so some of your advice is going to be taken into consideration. THANK YOU for your time to read this post. I WILL HAVE PICS SOON. GIVE ME TIME TO RECOOP MY FINANCES TO GET A CAMERA.
