I am a first time grower. The seeds I used I really don’t know what kind they are. They were seeds we’ve been collecting from our street dealer. 🤷
I wanted to experiment before I spent a bunch of money on seeds I didn’t know how to take care of.
I started off with 14 seeds that germinated. (The first 2 weeks of August.)
Planted all 14 in solo cups with holes in the bottoms
I lost 1 due to the seed she’ll never falling off.
Week 1 they were about 1 cm tall
For the first 2 weeks I set them outside when the sun was up and took them into the shed during night time.(mostly so the cats wouldn’t eat them)
Moved them into the shed to a 3ft×3ft shelf area 3ft tall.
Lined the top, bottom and sides with black trash bags to keep light from straying from the area.
I started using 2-100W lights up about 18-24in, a non oscillating fan (that’s all I had. I moved it around every couple of days).
Week 2 I started using General Organics go box nutrients starting on week 1 on the chart.
I’m now on week 4.
I took out the 2-100W lights and put in a 600W Light. It’s hanging 2 ft above the plants.
I got reflective mylar film to line the walls.
I have a small dehumidifier and a oscillating fan in my 3×3 ft space.
My watering schedule is as followed
Water one day, not watered one-day, nutrients one day, not watered one-day and repeat.
My pH leaves are testing 5.5-7
Light testing at 200 and moist at a 10 (just fed week 3 nutrients today)
My temp is a little high running at 88°F but they’re in a shed and temp is hard to control.
Humidity is at a 64%
They’re all on average 2inches tall. All but one has 3-5 leaves per stem
I think I am going to lose one due to the main stem being really week. I’ve got wire hanger wire as a crutch for it.
This is them at week 3
Any advice is welcome. I need to know if I’m doing this right I have researched so much my head hurts. Almost every web site is different and I can’t get direct answers to my questions.
Is 600W too much for my 3×3 ft space?
Is 11 seedlings too many for this space?
Are my plants the right size for what week they’re at?
