Daunting or not

Hello all, I’ve been reading more and more and I am learning a lot more than I ever would have thought.
My 600w mh/hps bulbs co e in monday and I’m going to do my first grow. I already have the 4x4x6.5 tent and all hardware, ie, fan ballast, and a lot more.
I guess what I’m asking is, is this going to be fun or overwhelming??? The more I read on a daily basis the more I realize I dont know jack monkey squat,lol.
Any words of encouragement are appreciated but if this is going to be hard as heck please let me know that too.
Thanks all. :slight_smile:

Well that would depend on you. I enjoy working and spending time with my plants. So yes it is work but I love doing it. Now trimming sucks, but the rest is fun and trimming is made easier by being so close to being done

Find a process that works and go with it. I use General Hydroponics nutrients small doses every watering with Pro-Mix HP so it is hard to over water.

Make sure you pH your water correctly and using RO has been great for me. I use 1/4 tsp of Epsom salt to each gallon of water. My last four plants gave me over 13 oz bud with this program.

I’ve been happy with GH for sure. The week 4* means use this for extra weeks in veg and 7* until getting into finish. Your setup should be fine @Irish. I had a 2x4 and quickly went to a 4x4 for more versitility.

Good point @Hogmaster. I don’t show the germination either which adds a week before the chart week 1 I uploaded. “Dead reckoning” kind of :slight_smile:

It definitely takes hard work & patience to grow quality weed, but IT’S WELL WORTH IT.

Keep reading, learning, and sharing; we’ve got your back.

Really focus on your environment controlling it and and your temperature and humidity levels also ph meter and calibration solution. I spend 30 minutes to a hour every other day making nutrient solution and tucking and spreading out the leaves and 20 minutes to do just ph water .
Once you get a routine down it gets easier and faster doing thing. If you keep on it you will have successful grow and some big green nuggets to be proud of. Patience is something you will need to just don’t be afraid to ask questions start a grow journal and let the learning begin
