Bel's Critical Mass SOG

Here we go!

Critical Mass, SOG Method

What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed (photo or auto):

13 Critical Mass Fem Photos, from ILGM. Will likely narrow it down to the 12 strongest plants.

Age of plant/what week of flower

Beans popped on September 3rd, 2021, so today, they are just over six weeks old from bean to pot.

Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF

Coco, (Cultivation Nation from Fox Farms, 70% coco, 30% perlite), Fox Farms Grow Big for the young plants in veg. Will probably switch to Jack’s for flower.

A variety of small pots, what I had on hand. A few of this and that.

Actual wattage draw of lights

320 each, I think?

Want to thank all of these guys and gals (and more!) for helping me along on my last (my very first!) grow, (Bel’s Green Babies). From building my lights, all the way up to to my first two harvests, I had a lot of help & input from you all. It was successful, and yet, I learned a LOT along the way, from the fine folks in the forum. Much appreciated.

You all rock. Follow along if ya like.
