… And when I say first grow ever, I mean - first grow EVER. Not just for MJ, but really anything. Never really established a green thumb, but have been taking care of a house plant when I realized that I wanted to get something in return. And what better to harvest than the best plant out there?!
I plan to document everything I do, every step of the way, so I appreciate your patience if it gets excessive and happy you’re along for the ride! Any tips, tricks, advice, or help along the way would be amazing!!
I bought the full Pot for Pot 5gal grow kit paired with the Autoflower Mix Pack from ILGM - got myself a 450w Vipar Spectra light inside a 32x32x64" tent.
Seeds just came in today, so figured I’d get a jump on the process. A Pot for Pot comes with 2 coco bricks that you mix with water to fluff, and then they give you Mycorrhizae Rooting Booster Powder, Diatomaceous Earth & Perlite to mix in to create the top soil mix.
I filled the bottom of the grow bag with the Pot for Pot Super Soil, and then packed my top soil mix on top.
Decided to start with Blueberry Auto - only one plant to start out with so I can focus and learn slowly. The Pot for Pot Grow Kit comes with a Jiffy Pellet, so I soaked it in water to let it expand and now is currently sitting in its seedling cup. I’ve been seeing online to plant the seed in the jiffy pellet in the seedling cup and either transplant once a seedling pops out, OR since its an autoflower I can plant the seed in the jiffy pellet, directly into the 5gal grow bag. I plan to do the latter.
Right now I have the seed soaking in water - decided to use Trader Joe’s Artesian Bottled Water for everything, I’ll make note if I change that at any point! I live in Culver City, CA so if anyone knows if the tap water is good for later in the grow please let me know!!
I’m on my desktop to post this, but plan to post pics from my phone in a bit. I’ll also be back to update in about 12-24 hours when I finally plant - super pumped for this!!
