Background: A friend randomly gave me 3 seeds. I decided to give growing a shot out of the blue with very little planning. Friend also recommended getting seeds on ILGM. I felt like a kid in a candy store and went with Heavy Hitters, Kush Mix and Chemical Mix.
The game plan: pretty close to wing it. Ordered some fox farms happy frog and ocean forest soil and some crappy peat moss “biodegradable” planter pots that were too small. Also got 2 32 watt ge grow bulbs and an empty spot on my work bench in the shed, 2 These were just for seedlings, but it soon became apparent I needed something more for my sprouts.
Grow #1 (3/10/2021)- 3 girl scout cookies - germinated in a cup of water sitting in a cupboard. These were grown under 32 watt lights. So when I took them out doors in the afternoon even for a short time, it was enough.
Woops, I shocked and killed them. Learned what hardening off is though and how important it is. Also learned what crap choice I chose in planter cups. For the next batch I went with 3.5”
Grow #2 (3/19/2021)- 3 blue dreams, 3 gorilla glue and 3 mk ultra. All germinated in plastic containers with water. 1 gorilla and 1 mk failed to sprout. Fox Farms Happy Frog soil used
Grow #3 (3/28/2021)- 5 master kush and 1 mk ultra. Germinated in water for a few days and planted in soil. 2 of the master kush seeds did not sprout. I picked up a grow dome and an HLG 100 watt light to help out. The dome is totally unnecessary for my situation. I could see it being necessary for clones. All planted in Fox Farms Happy Frog
Grow #4 (4/5/2021)- 3 Hindu and 2 bubba. Placed directly in soil with no pre-soak. 4 left under a dome and 32 watt light, the other one left under a 32 watt. All watered heavily, just 1 hindu under the dome did not make it. Sprouted and came up to the surface, just maybe got over watered. All planted in FFHF
April 6th - First day of Hardening Off. Doing all plants at once.
4/10/2021 - Transplanting grow #1 into grow bags. Everything at night in the shed under the 100 watt light. Still hardening off
