Hello everyone. I have been secretly reading this forum for months getting my courage up to dedicate time and resources to a grow so here I am.
I own a small farm off grid in the Nv high desert. I love weed and have been smoking it regularly since I was 20. I aim to try producing my own for once.
Firstly thank you for being an awesome community and helping me learn some basics.
I live in Nevada where we recently acquired right to grow, horray!
I picked up 8 clones. One of them looked very ragged and died within first 3 days. Noooo! With 7 left going strong I feel things picking up.
The clones were obtained in dixie cups and upon root inspection were ready to transplant over while I dug holes. This pic is of them in their halfway houses.
After reading a bit I decided to grab foxfarms dorty dozen. I know theres a bit of contention about how good thry are/n't but I needed a complete solution as a newbie.
A pic of my nutrients. My amazing wife says peace yall.
Here are the holes dug. 4 feet square by a few deep. This was some work even with a tiny tractor. Somehow I don't have pics od them dug but heres the equipment used to gengenerate the holes.
Here's a pic of all holes dug and filledfilled. Took yards and yards of soil and a ton of back breaking work mixing with shovels and filling with wheelbarrows.
A closeup of the drip system install. 3 concentric circles at 4 2 and 1 foot dianeters. The drip is fed from a single 300gal IBC tote as my farm is off grid and we truck in our water til we get a well dug.
All seven survivors planted in their forever home! I performed transplant at 10pm and soaked each rootball in a wormjuice and water solution before putting them in the ground. They are about 4 weeks in my posession so far.
Hoping to get some info on how to prune and chop lower branches to stimulate large growth! Will keep updating journal as time goes on. Here's hopin!
