Been lurking through the site for a little while trying to absorb as much info as possible. I think I have a basic understanding of what’s going on but would gladly appreciate any help if I am doing something wrong.
This will be my first grow. I started buying stuff to grow a while ago and didn’t have the time to start it up so some stuff was bought before finding this site. I’m sure I have bought some things that could be upgraded or changed but it’s what I have right now. So we will see how it does.
4’x8’x6.5’ area in basement.
Temporary walls set up with Mylar film
2x OG Kush Autoflower seeds from ILGM
75% Fox Farms Ocean Forest Soil + 25% Peralite
7 gallon Fabric Grow bags
1x Mars Hydro TS 600W light
Hydrofarm 6" duct Fan - Blowing straight outside
Vivosun 6" Carbon Filter
Temp + Humidity Monitor
Oscillating fan - Once they get bigger
Dehumidifier at house if needed
pH down to add to Tap water.
Have bloom nutrients for later on
Do I need to order any other nutrients? From what I read the Ocean Forest soil has enough to keep the plant healthy till flowering?
I think that’s about it for the setup. My plan is to grow 2 plants now and if this goes well, upgrade the light and add more plants. Right now I can’t really upgrade anything cause my wife would kill me if I spent any more money on this. Was supposed to be a somewhat cheap hobby, she had a different opinion on what cheap was… oops
So far I think everything is going well.
Room Temp light on : 72-75
Room Temp light off : 65-68
Humidity : 55% - 65%
Water pH : 6.1-6.5
I started the seeds off in water and Hydrogen Peroxide. They broke out of the shells in about 2 days.
Planted them root down in the 7 gallon pots.
Covered them with a dome made from cut water bottle.
Watered them with enough water to get runoff once.
Sprayed the soil twice a day. until they came out.
So far watering every other day with a small amount of water.
Let me know if I’m doing anything wrong. And thanks for all the help already with reading other topics.
