Wednesday, September 14th, 2019 - Day 1
As the title states, this is my very first grow - I have posted a few questions on here, but I thought I would do my first grow further justice by documenting every single minute detail for the world to consume…ok or maybe just me lol.
I have already made quite a few amateur mistakes, but have corrected them as quickly as possible from the great advice of other members on this forum! Regardless of the “mistakes” the community on here, and sheer fun I’ve been having with this process has made it all worth it so far!
Grow Room Details
I’ve decided to start my first grow as an Indoor grow here are the technical details:
- WAKYME Indoor Grow Tent 24x24x48 inches
- Phlizon 1200W LED Plant Grow Light
- AC Infinity CLOUDLINE S4, Quiet 4” Inline Duct Fan with Speed Controller
- AC Infinity Flexible 4-Inch Aluminum Ducting
- iPower GLFILT4M 4 Inch Air Carbon Filter
- Jomst Portable Camping Fan
- LEVOIT 1.8L Humidifier
- VIVOSUN 5-Pack 2 Gallon Grow Bags
- Garden Plant Twist Tie Reel
This first grow was meant more to learn and understand the ‘basics’ before getting into heavy into the types of strains/seeds I wanted to use. I was gifted 3 seeds:
- Girl Scout Cookies
- Night Fire OG
- Unknown Seed
Unfortunately when I planted them, I had no way of knowing which seed was which strain, so I’ve been treating them the same in terms of care. Additionally - I didn’t start taking photos until the later stages of the grow either.

I decided to throw all of the seeds into tap water in a small dish - each seed fully “popped” around Day 4, with roughly 3/4 inch sprout. Once each seed was roughly the same length I put each individual sprout in their own 3 quart planting plastic container. I then put them under the grow lights about 3.5 feet above the sprouts. This took off…FAST.

I originally started with Miracle Grow Moisture Control soil when I planted my seeds. Thanks to the amazing help by @Myfriendis410, @blackthumbbetty, and @Skydiver for educating me on the importance of good wholesome soil, I transplanted my girls in larger 2-Gallon Grow Bags and then used BlackGold Natural & Organic Potting Mix + Fertilizer.

Honestly today has been the most rewarding day. So here is what I’ve done… My grow tent is small (I know that now) for the amount of plants I’m starting with.
One of my plants main cola broke off during my first implimentation of Low-Stress Training. My full write-up is here.
So due to space issues, I’ve moved the plant that “broke” to the outside for fun. Today, I believe the outdoor plant began to begin the flowering process!!
I’ll continue updating this journal now that I’ve caught myself up, and made the initial post. I’ve got a long way to go before harvest - but I already want to give a huge thanks to:
@myfriendis410 @blackthumbbetty @skydiver @KinSEDC @PurpNGold74 @fano_man @Hogmaster @Oldguy
Can’t wait to see this first crow through the end, and then really bring my new set of knowledge to the next grow!
