Hello everyone! This is my very first post here on this forum. I’ve been creeping around on the website for some time now and decided to make an account so I can post here. First off I would like to say that this website and its forum members are awesome! I can tell by the responses of some of the posts I’ve read that you are all extremely helpful and very kind to each other.
Being in a state that allows up to 3 plants to be legally grown I figured why not, lets try to grow some! What started as a simple idea sort of turned into a slight obsession. I haven’t even started growing yet but i can see how this is addicting. My setup will be inside my room as my room is fortunately big and I had a lot of open space. Here’s what I have…
3x3x6 grow tent by ViperSpectra
Viperspectra 900W light
AC infinity 6" exhaust fan which will hook up to a filter and ill be venting it out the top of the tent into my room. ( I hope that wont be an issue, assuming the huge filter will be good enough to keep the smell somewhat contained)
Ill be growing 3 Autoflowering Gorilla Glue seeds in 3 gallon fabric bags using Fox Farm Happy Frog soil.
I live in a very dry climate so my Humidity inside is around 20% or lower, So I bought a little humidifier off Amazon to use during the early stages to keep RH up.
I have an oscillating tower fan inside for air circulation.
And I also just ordered a portable AC unit as the current temp in my room is usually like 80 degrees during the day…even with the current AC on. So I needed one anyway. It was a win win buying that. Ill keep that in my room which will help keep the temps inside the tent where i want them.
I do not have pics now as im waiting for the AC Infinity fan, piping, AC unit, and seeds to arrive. Ill upload once everything is all up and running. Likely this weekend.
I feel confident going into this for the most part, the one thing I’m still struggling to fully understand is the watering and nutrients. From my understanding, I wont really need to use nutrients until about week 5? or so. If someone can correct me on that, it would be great!
My plan is to start germination by placing the seeds in a glass of room temp water overnight/ or 24 hours until I see little tails popping out. Once that happens I will be placing them in Rapid Rooters which will be placed in their final destination into the 3gallon bags full of the Happy Frog soil. I will likely have my light hanging as high as I can and watch the seedling as they grow and adjust height as needed. Initially I will try to keep my tent at 77-79 degrees with 60% RH and slowly lower RH as the weeks go by.
As this will be my first ever grow, I wanted to create this post more or less as somewhat of a journal to track my progress, ask for help, as well as share my journey with all of you. I wasn’t expecting this first post to be so long, I just wanted to let you all know my setup and my plan, and any advice you can provide me will be great! I will start getting pictures up soon as my setup is finished and ill keep updating as my progress continues throughout this grow!
