Blondies First Grow

My first grow will be an experimental proof grow.
I will be showing the difference between a half ass cheap setup and the results obtained. My 2nd grow will be with a legit setup showing the results obtained.

Anywho here is what we got growing on.
At 912pm last night I dropped 2 Speed+ Autos into room temperature water. Hoping to see tails tonight or tomorrow. I will be using a cheap Chinese MARS Hydro TS 1000W. Growing in my closet (no tent). Will be using tap water that is 6.1 pH. Using 5 gallon bags. Will post pics once I get them germinated and planted. This is gonna be interesting and saddening at the same time, but on a good note will give me an estimate to see if these truly go from seed to harvest in 7 weeks lol. Dont expect much out of this grow at all.

Not a bad approach. I used bag seed for my first grow in many years. I’m happy I did it because I got to make my mistakes when my expectations were low, so there were no big disappointments.

It turned out that, among my bag seeds, I had 2 males and 2 hermies, so all of them were lost; however, I did take them several weeks into flower and learned a whole lot, particularly with the help of the good folks here.

My wife wants to do the same experiment to prove I don’t have to spend so much time in the grow.

I don’t have the heart to tell her the reason I spend so much time with the plant is they give me peace and quiet which translates into inner peace…

Gardening isn’t just a hobby it’s mental therapy
