So I’ve got a post somewhere on here about Nutriant help, but it also includes my grow process of my very first grow(ended up being a male) and my current second grow. So I figured it was time to create my first grow journal sense I’ve got some free time. I will try my best with specs and measurements.
Seed: Random seed out of top shelf bud.
Medium: Natures Organic Potting Soil. No fertilizers added.
Pot: 3 Gal plastic pot. I’ve got a 5 gal fabric smart pot but just waiting to transplant or for next grow.
Fan/Circulation I’ve got a 3 speed better fan on top of my grow box for sucking up the heat from the CFL’s and ive got a little desk fan for circulation on the plant itself.
Growbox: Its a 55Gal Sterilight tub. Measurements are 20" wide, 35" tall, and 20" deep.
Lights: Six 23w (100w equiv) 6.5k CFL’s. (Found a Vespar 300w for $80, might be my next upgrade lol)
I’ve got it on a 18/6 light cycle now because I finally bought a timer for it so i figured why waste electricity. lol I am slightly worried about it’s size because it was transported into a pot on March 23, making today exactly 14 days from soil. Now my feline friend did have a mightnight snack on the 3rd of April and i know cutting the ends of the leafs tricks the plant into thinking it needs more root growth then veg growth but im hoping she stands up tall. ive already topped her which i did yesterday. I’m excited for LST or maybe even some super cropping. If I am missing anything, LET ME KNOW. lol This is my first grow journal. So lets start with March 23rd.
3/23/18: Planted the seed, started 24/h light cycle at 1pm.
3/24/18: Seed popped out of the dirt!!!
3/27/18: First set of true leafs are showing.
3/29/18: Second set of true leafs are showing.
3/31/18: Started showing its first deficiency which worried me but thanks to an ILGM member, i was informed it was a Ph issue.
4/3/18: APRIL THIRD TWOTHOUSAND AND EIGHTEEN MY FELINE CAT DECIDED HE WANTED A MIDNIGHT SNACK. Woke up and almost murdered my cat. He is very curious about me growing and is always watching from a far when i water or do anything in the grow closet. I couldn’t stay mad at him. I went to a hydroponics store that I had recently found out about and got a Ph Control kit and a few misc things for the future as well as put it on a 18/6 light cycle thinking it would help it.
4/6/18: I went ahead and topped it a little early but figured it might help with growth. I readjusted my lights all over again so they are hanging for better heat circulation. It’s been 3 days sense our Feline friend Crowley munched on it and it looks good. Im still worried for its height but i’m sure im just overthinking it.
Happy Cultivating and I’ll be in touch!
