Northern Lights Grow Journal (First Grow)

  1. Hey fellow growers & smokers, I’m using a 2x2x4 Mylar Hydroponic Tent with just one 600w Bloomspect also using miracle gro indoor potting mix with mix of (28•13•19) & planted in 2 Gallon pot no carbon filter or inline fan yet, just a 4” clip on fan from Walmart & I’m using water with I wanna say a ph of a solid 6.4 or higher from essentia water mixed with a little tap to bring ph down a bit. Humidity stays nice after I smoke in it only have to do it maybe 4-5 times since no humidifier or dehumidifier.

  2. Do you have a water ph tester?
     
  3. No not yet, payday right around the corner lol but I’ve did a little research & I let the chlorine get out from tap then i know that the essentia water I get is a smooth 8.5 9 or higher ph on bottle & all research says 9.5 ph or higher in the water & where I live I asked a neighbor & tap is about 4.0 - 4.5 tap so prob brought it down from 9.5 to 6.5-7.3

  4. You should water your plant around 5.8-6.0 ph. It helps to prevent deficiencies in your grow.
     
  5. Thanks, I’m gonna get a meter Tuesday or Wednesday so I’ll try to balance it down

  9. Day 8 of northern lights grow, nothing much besides seeing the second part of the stem coming up thru the middle I think lol & also added a 20” fan to help keep it cool & humidity down so it’s a 4” clip on fan & also a 20” floor fan inside with a 600w bloomspect LED

    Wasn’t too much going on yesterday so here’s Day 14, Temp is at 86F when LED is on & 77F-79F When off, 36%-44% humidity leaves are looking frosty I think I see the next layer of leaves sprouting up which mean it should grow taller soon I hope lol

  18. Quick update: Sorry for the blurring & the specs are just water droplets from me watering but here’s Day 17 humidity is at a cool 29-34% temp 88F & it’s actually growing faster than I expected it!! So far I haven’t fed it any nutrients just running Miracle-Gro indoor potting soil 28% nitrogen slow release so will feed guano grow crazy & some homemade worm Castings on day 30.. watering only when needed with essentia water & I flushed it once I think lol I watered until a bit started to drain out the bottom of my fabric pot. Also added my inline fan as a extra fan to keep temp down until I figure out how to use the ducting locks to connect my ventilation. Prob won’t connect until I switch to flower or before I get it into flower

  19. Looking good, dont worry about how fast there growing. Cause some strains and genetics are just faster in general. Mine were slow starting. Also had a moment where they looked like they wasnt growing... But ill be damn in 2-3 days later them little shits done took off and doubled there size haha. Paitence is key. When they stop showing growth then discoloration.. Then you have a problem. Untill then, roll with it homie!
