Hey grasscity, I'm completely new to this forum, but have been a reader for atleast months now. I'm a 18 year old from a random little city in Canada. Weed is probably the sweetest stuff on earth and i've been DREAMING about growing ever since i started smoking. My buddy SWIM is a dealer and he sells me all my dope ect ect. Recently me him, and our other buddy SWIM2 had a big shrooms epiphany and discovered we had the perfect conditions for growing, his basement. My buddy swim gave me some seeds and i started planting them. First batch werent too good, the squirells ate them. The second batch i put about 15 seeds into a glass of water, and presto. Germination. I was amazed! ANYWAYS, not that you all want to hear about germination or boring sheet like that. I grew those 15 seeds into about 10 babys, which were later transported to swim2's house. We bought 2 lighting fixtures with 4 fluerescent tubes, chains for holding, ect ect. everything over there is going extremely good. all the plants are going from 1-2.5 feet already, and its been close to 20 days? i also kept a plant for myself that i wanted to watch outdoors. He's been doing good and is the same age as the others, hes apx 2-3 feet tall and is growing 9 fingered leaves already. Heres some progress pics of the outdoor, (indoor pics coming mad soon boys).

My outdoor plant is getting little bitemarks in the leaves, i found a "leaf-like" bug in my plant, it flew away but i have a feeling that they are the culprits. I've sprayed my plant with vinigar to lower the smell because it danks up my whole backyard, and today i sprayed it with antibacterial soap/chili powder, we'll see how that goes. 2. 2 of my indoor plants are growing with purple stems, the whole plant isnt purple, just the upper part of the stem, they look cream, not sure if this is just a defficiency or what. Let me know your thoughts!
