We decided to transplant to their forever homes after seeing roots coming through Peet pellets. 3gal fabric pots (now kind of regretting not using 5gal) but hoping they’ll do fine in the 3gal. We decided to use coco bricks for our medium!


#5

Looking good!

What did you use as your medium? Does it contain perlite or anything that assists with aeration/drainage?


#6

Thanks!
Coco bricks

Here’s a couple more progress pics of the little ladies, my wife and I can wait to be rolling up our own bud this summer. It’s going to be tough to wait that long though! However, monitoring them is quite enjoyable.

Today we did some LST by applying soft coated wire to clips and bending the main stem a little bit towards the outside of the fabric pots. Only on 3 of the 4 plants though. Junior, may still be a little too small.

Thanks @Bubblehead, for the welcome. I try not to ask too many questions and just let the plants do their thing. But I’m sure I’ll have a few along the way.

I don’t have a PH meter yet, hoping to pick one up this week though. However I do have a TDS meter.
I’m glad to hear the 3gal fabrics will work fine for this grow.
The tent is 32x32x63. We bought a grow tent kit on Amazon. I know not the best choice, but it’s a start !

@guy ask away I’m definitely still learning and you may ask a question that someone else needs the answer also. Enjoy your first grow the tent looks fine and should work well for your first grow. 4 plants in there it should get to looking like a forest soon. You may want to consider adding a couple fans to keep air moving. They are inexpensive and will help keep away some of the issues that can show up. I keep a journal off line with a lot more data. That has been invaluable when I’ve had issues arise.
