hi all! this is my first grow after researching and obsessing for about 20 years. I decided to go with a small tent 2x2x4 with an 800 watt LED (actual is closer to 200 watts) FFOF soil grow, Aerogarden nutes (i know its all wrong, but its what i have on hand), carbon filter, fabric pot, and dehumidifer outside the tent. Running light 24/0 on autoflower fem Critical Purple from Growers Choice.
Germ went fine, seedling sprouted in a couple days and ive been vegging for about 30 days. I just noticed some growth from a node that i didnt want another branch growing from
I removed it and opened it only to find a couple small pistils. Oops. What to do? I ate it.
I have mainlined her above the fourth node (i know I should avoid high stress on autos, but ive been following Green75 on youtube and i like his approach). (edit: i found this guy just searching youtube grow videos, idk if hes on this forim r not) So far im happy. I have no idea what yield to expect, but I dont mind. Im having way too much fun.
I have pics back to seedling, but youve all seen a million pics like that so i thought id share the pics before and after mainlining including some pics during defoliation.
Btw i have the light very close. I keep reading about backing up the light to allow for stretch, but I cant help it, i want to give her a much light as i can. More light is more photosynthesis, right?
Thanks for reading, give me a “like” or constructive feedback if you can. Thanks all and happy growing.
