To begin, I am a beginner, I am expected to get bashed for every mistake that I have made thus far. I’ll start with what I have in my grow tent and all the other basics:
2-Critical Purple Kush(Barney’s Farm),1-Super Silver Haze(ILGM) growing in Fox Farm Coco Loco. I’m using a mix of Alaska Fish Fertilizer for my nitrogen and Fox Farm’s calmag. My temps range between 75-77 with 55-60 RH and I’m using a Viparspectra 600w Reflector Series set at 19.5”. I’ve been watering every 3-4 days and sometimes longer. We’ve had a heat spell here in Oklahoma so I’ve had some warmer temps causing them to drink more. I’ll test using my finger, pick them up and I also use a soil moisture gauge before watering. I’ve done my best not to over water and I use a PH meter and drops to test my water’s PH and I try and keep it between 6.3-6.5. I also use Earth Juice PH up/down. I also with plain PH’d water every other time. They all popped July 23rd. One of the CPK and the SSH were started in solo cups and the other CPK was started in a small nursery pot. They are all the same age, but I only have one that is exploding with growth. I’m Mainlining the two Kush’s and I just topped my SSH once and I’m just going to let her do her thing since, from what I understand, Sativa and Sativa hybrids aren’t really good for Mainlining. Anyways I re-potted them, the biggest in a 5gal and the other two in 3gal pots. I’m just wondering if I was just to eager to get them going, that I stunted them by topping too soon and too much. I’ve been laughed at about their size, but for 5 weeks, I think they’re decent. If they truly are smaller than what they’re supposed to be, please let me know what I need to do. You’ll see that on my biggest, I topped till I had an 8 potential colas and my other is only at 4 so far. It is going slow and I expect it to take longer because of all of the topping. I don’t have much experience with indoor grows or with cannabis but I have had decent runs for a few years with an outdoor vegetable garden. I know they’re not the same l, but come on, this is weed and is a weed. Shouldn’t be that difficult. As you can tell I just medicated with some Super Lemon Haze so it’s helped extend my comfort zone and chatty. I’ll end this with some pictures. Please let me know if I’ve forgotten any information to tell y’all.
(Just a side note: all of this was gifted to me because I’m on fixed income as I’m a disabled vet growing trying my hand at growing my own meds.)
