Looking good. Welcome. I too sprouted 6 but on 4/29. 1 lemon auto, 1 NLights auto, 2 Cream and Cheese CBD, 2 Harliquin Kimbo Kush CBD. I started the journal on My post CocoLoco and Jack 321. Plus my Germination Day post. Tomorrow will be 3 weeks so I’ll post a pic.
You seem to have a solid plan. It’ll be interesting. TTYL.

My suggestion is to only post with flash or natural light. Can’t see / tell anything in blurple.
I have the Kingplus 600 I use for veg. It’s only 125w.

Thank you!

I have waited out my 24 hour timer for 5 posts on my fist day for being a noob on the site :joy:

So I may finally reply

Yeah we’ll see how it develops, definitely in pre flower I LST’d pretty hard on them (no supercropping just normal LST) never grew indoors before so just trying to dial in. Also never grew autos before, I see the top 3 in the pic are definitely pre- but the bottom 2 on the bottom left and bottom right are just starting to show sex (barely) but are really starting to stretch out, they just kinda stopped for about a week and got way behind the other 3, not worried not even really worried about total yield, atm just trying to learn to keep them healthy, get used to feeding etc. the bottom little gorilla glue in the middle is catching up to them quick haha.

Today was feeding day, 5 bigger plants got FF grow big / big bloom / and Cal-mag all at 1/2 recommended dose, as well as full dose of microbe brew, small gorilla glue that’s a week behind did not need a watering today, the pot is still too heavy, soil still feels pretty moist probably another day or 2 and it’ll get some grow big/microbe/ and first dose of cal-mag

Looking foreword to your post of your plants!

Thank you for the welcomes everybody!

Figured I’d throw in that I love growing all types of plants. The full veggie garden is in, on top of that I also planted 4x raspberry bushes, 4 blueberry bushes, made a zucchini independent bed, 75x strawberry plants in their own bed, 2x honeycrisp apple trees, 2x cocktail fruit trees (5 kinds of fruit on the same tree) 2x nectarine trees, and 2x Alberta peach and 2x dwarf peach trees

We just moved into this house about 6 months ago but we’re trying to plan for the future, obviously trees are about 4-5 years out from producing fruit but it’s worth the time now to get it going

Garden is planned as full permaculture 100% dark leaf Organic compost 2x layers of cardboard underneath, no till garden main garden is 40ftx30ft next year we plan to double it

Good luck indoors! Outdoor garden looks lovely. Also I’m jealous of your yard. So large and flat, it’s beautiful lol. I’m only on a 1/4 acre. Sigh…

No I’m not is he on YouTube? I watch a lot of videos by Jim kovaleski, he’s a market gardener, and does permaculture / no-till gardening that’s our goal, to start this garden we put down cardboard and put about 12 cubic yards of organic dark leaf compost on top no soil at all, this is the first year with the garden as we just moved in it’s about 5x bigger than any garden We’ve ever been able to do due to size restrictions, this one is 30’x40’ next year we will probably add in another 30’x20’

Thank you been working on as much as we can haha luckily we found this home and we were able to sell our old home quick enough to get it, moved about 35 minutes out of the city into the deep country, it was our goal all along :grin:

Girls are looking happy today cant believe how frosty some of the leaves are getting this early in flower, yes I know purple pics I personally don’t mind them I just know that’s how I’m growing them, I checked a few In Sunlight today just didn’t have my phone with me, very even color nice even Lush green, got sent home from work today since my wife tested positive for “the vid” she’s doing fine I spent all day out in the veggie garden with the kids… on top of that I have to take ( days off which just happens to tie into my 7 day weekend ( so 13 days off at home) and a half bottle of tequila digging out another 15’x20’ section to add to my overkill garden. Goddamn are my strawberries and radishes kicking ass already haha

Roots from the maples I cut down late last year killed me haha.

But It’ll be my potato’s, carrots. Yams and other root vegtablr section so I’m happy
