You a soil, coco or hydro grower?

Using soil, FFOF right now. Next run thinking about coco loco and ocean forest blend.

I think I knew that… sorry. I lose track. I use FFHF+FFOF and Pearlite. I too am considering coco for my next grow. I lean away from OF because I hear everyone say, “it’s so hot.”

HAHA, no worries. Hard to keep up with the multiple conversation lines sometimes. I have been catching up on a lot of journals and BOM stuff…eating it up!

I sprouted all mine in the FFOF and have had absolutely zero issues. I have seen the “hot” statement a lot also. Sprouted and am growing a bunch directly in the soil, no issues so far. Has been a blast learning.

Good for you. The learning curve is really steep – even for someone who considers them a good grower of other plants/gardens. BOM – you need to beware of that thread – it’s known to cause heart palpitations. :anatomical_heart:

When you say growing direct in soil, you mean you started them (from germination) into their final soil/container – no peat pod or solo cups? I hate the whole solo cup thing.

Correct, no germination. Soil was moist, dropped in their forever pots, ran RH up to 80% with humidifier and bam, had all seedlings pop. Mr Canucks does it that way too, so figured I’d give it a shot and it worked. I know it’s not recommended but I wanted to see how it worked.

BOM is fabulous for sure! Beautiful flowers.

I’ve been placing germed seeds into peat pods to sprout just because it’s easier for me to deal with them in my little Thunder Dome – sprouter box. Temp and RH are easy to keep right without effecting the rest of my grow room. I have an open-room growing format – so my deal is a little strange.

Thunder Dome


My grow room, just as first three plants were being placed back in late Feb. Sure doesn’t look like this now.

That is an awesome setup! I have a 3 x 3 Spider Farmer tent and a 4x4 Spider Farmer tent. Once this first grow is completed I’m going to add an additional 4x4 or maybe 5x5, haven’t decided. I want to get the programmable controls for the fan for heat and humidity also, that’ s a great setup. How many grows have you completed?

This is working, and what I like is, if it doesn’t I can add tents. I just added a tent in the room specifically for drying. I don’t live in a house/apartment – so there are no good temperate drying spaces and I will NOT use my bedroom.

Nice, great idea. That was my thoughts with the 3x3, once I get the additional, larger tent, I will use the small one for seedlings/drying. Probably way ahead of myself, but that’s the plan at this point!

It’s all in the books now. After 78 days, Shadrack (Grow 1, Plant 1) is in the jar. So a week of burping and I guess I can say I’m done.

What a trip this has been – the best part has been meeting so many of you and reaping the benefits of your experience and advice – and you talking me down of the ledge. I wish you were all with me, so we could share a smoke.

First one under the belt! Well done @GrnyGrows it gets easier and better from here on! Been following your grow since New Years, you’ve asked lots of good questions and learned from some of the best. This is an addictive hobby, run with it!

Don’t know yet. Need to drop four in the dirt on the 15th for the Full Flower Eclipse Moon Seed Drop. I know I want to grow both ILGM and Mephisto. I always want a White Widow or two going also – as it’s my go-to, every day medicinal.
