Good day all, on a good start of this grow with the new hlg lighting from seed to harvest. As with all my grows simple, lights, 6 inch clip fan, new digital timer lol in a closet. I’m in a apartment where I have to be careful of nosey neighbors so I can’t have large deliveries, I can only buy mg soil and it’s small grow so 12" pots. My closet is 2x4x6, and this grow I’m doing two photos and a auto, purple kush, blue dream, and pineapple express auto. I can go around 5 foot wide if I need lol and I have to keep them less than 36 inch tall. This is first time using two hlg 100 v2 3000k boards, very good at flowering as I finished last grow with them. I started my seeds in soil July 16 and all three popped out July 19th two weeks ago. The purple, and the pineapple auto are off to a good start, blue dream is smaller but same amount of leafs so not really behind but small??? All are working on the 5th node and look happy. I use well water and at this time using a growth accelerator called speedy veg, it has Cal mag and other minerals, no nitrogen so I use it for seedlings to about 5 weeks. And because this is a inclosed grow, no ventilation I also have a co2 bag, of course not necessarily now but by the time it’s producing the girls will be filling closet with oxygen rich air and no co2. I know they don’t provide tons but I’m sure it’s helpful. Here are pictures of first two weeks and hope you guys will see what happens.@kcj @ReconBravo @Bulldognuts @kellydans @Bubblehead @dbrn32
Nice, I’m on board. I’ll make sure to remember that you use mg. That way when someone is using it I can let them know to check out your journal. Good luck
They’re loving that light! I’m set to watch
Thanks man appreciate ya, thanks @ReconBravo also.
Thanks for the tag! Plants super healthy, looking good.
Looking healthy…following along
@dennis hello all looking terrific nice little grow
Boy what a few days I’ve had, my buddy grows here and had to take off in emergency, had 3 girls ready to harvest, asked me to strip the leaf and dry. Stripping limp leaf matter is a pain ugh… but saved my buddies grow. Ha ha he was very generous for harvesting a hair under a pound of wet trim bud. Thanks to the weed god woooo hoooo. Before and after pics.
Good day all here at week 3 and girls are all over the place, I’ve got one rather small plant thats about a week behind, and one showing sex or something lol and the other doing some crazy internodal spacing. I have never had so many different things happening to screw things up, it is like no other grow. I’m having to add second light to deal with hight difference, no biggie but if purple is in preflower for some reason, she may start to streach, also pineapple auto is showing pistols today also so they may share a light. Giving the runt her own??? The node spacing has been a problem on both the bigger plants so light hight dialed in now I think. But got some weird spacing, I am not use to these lights and it’s a lesson every day. Purple is a photo and putting out pistols, lights 18/6 maybe just showing sex but will see by next week lol. Well I’m going to post pictures, and have some patients. Thanks guys till next week happy growing yall. Group, pineapple auto, purple, and blue dream last.@Bulldognuts @Bubblehead @kcj @ReconBravo @kellydans
I see what you mean, different heights, shooting pistles. Looks like they will keep you on your toes.
@pptrsha1 this is my current grow, it’s having its problems, these plants have minds of their own for sure. Your canopy looks fantastic for 4 weeks of veg, you will be happy
@Stoney1 thanks for checking in man. @SKORPION I saw someplace you are running hlg 100 boards, are yours 3000k? And how do you like yours? It is a whole new game compared to buples, but trying to figure it out.
Yes I run 2 of them in a 2x4 for my veg tent. They may be 3k but I thought they were 3500 but I may be wrong. I like them and with two I can spread the light out. The local shop grows all there plants on 100s all different set ups different sizes. And all there plants look great. @Dennis62
Looking great ! Nothing like a good challenge keep you thanking and planning ahead . Good luck
To my best knowledge the 100s are either 3000k or 4000k. 4000 has more blue and maybe better for veg. I went with the 3000 because I was under the impression it was more middle of the road. I know they finished off my last grow during flower and doubled my yields. This is first grow seed to harvest, thanks man @SKORPION
Well week 4 here and things changed, I don’t know what is going on lol. First my photo purple kush went into flower on 18/6 schedule? Pineapple express auto is about a week behind and next week will have buttons. And my other photo blue dream failed to develop normal, two weeks behind and structure was dwarfed. Could not waste light on questionable yield so I cut her short. Now clock is on for the two in flower, and both have better light to finish with. So I’m stuck with something that shouldn’t be, a photo that automatically flowered way too early, and a auto going into flower, both are streaching now. I added my grow fertilizer not for the nitrogen but micros in there. I also top dressed purple with half strength p k booster today. Here’s pics lol.@kcj @ReconBravo @Bulldognuts @kellydans
I’m not sure where you got your seeds, but did you check packaging and make sure that they sent you photos. I had ordered NL photos and they sent me autos. I contacted customer support and they replaced seeds with proper order. I went ahead popped the autos and sort of wished I didn’t. Just wanted to mention this so you can check to make sure if they are photos.
