I just thought I’d start them indoors and put them outside after Easter. Ha! It’s getting complicated, so I’m starting a journal to help me keep track.
Here’s where it’s at: five weeks from sprout, and I’m running out of room in my using-what-I-can-find-around-the-house setup. Out of ten ILGM WW fem seeds, eight survived this far, which is way more than I expected. Six look strong, two are still weirdly tiny but I keep reading “you never know what’ll happen!” so I haven’t culled them.
Instead, to make room, I’m putting three in to flower in a second setup. Too early? Yeah. But… Idano, better than giving up entire plants, maybe. So!
Setup 1: spare bedroom, 64 watt t5 “daylight” fluorescent lamp with bonus light on my special needs girls on 18/6. These are the ones I’ll try to get outside to harvest in the fall.
Setup 2: other spare bedroom, in the closet. 120 watt fluorescent daylight lamp on 12/12. They’ll be small, but it could give me practice with flowering and harvest before the outside plants are ready.
They’re in Happy Frog soil. Haven’t had nutrient or pH issues yet.
I’d appreciate any observations or suggestions from you experts out there.
