I just joined the forum recently, but over the past couple months I have been researching heavily into growing. I invested in some equipment and purchased some seeds and am now ready to start my first grow!
I had some awesome help from a couple members on the forum in my topic about Germination. @MrPeat @VTGROW @Spiney_norman @MidwestGuy

Here is the equipment I have for this grow:
Tent: VIVOSUN 48x48x80
Ventilation: AC Infinity S6 In-line Fan with Carbon Filter (Will be arriving on 3/4)
Lighting: Bestva 2000W DC LED (After extensive research on this forum, I want to upgrade these lights as soon as possible. Right now, the budget does not allow it, but I plan on purchasing either 2 HLG 260 XL QBs or making a PLC Photo Boost Rig for the next grow)
Pots: 5-Gal Fabric Pots
Soil: FFOF and FFHF (Bottom 2/3 of pot filled with FFOF, top 1/3 FFHF)
Seeds: Northern Lights Auto from Seedsman
Seeds began soaking on 2/26. After tails were formed, seeds were planted on 2/28 and 2/29. 2 out of 3 of the seeds germinated, the third did not. I had only planned on growing 2, but I had a feeling one of them would not pop, so I made sure to have a back up. Glad I did.
I have pictures attached of the beginning of the grow and my set up.
After reading and watching along on a couple grows, I have found that this community is one of the best for learning about growing and for support throughout the process. I’m definitely still a beginner and would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
I hope you guys don’t mind, but I am tagging a few of the members that I have seen throughout the forum that may really be able to help this brand new grower. I’ve been soaking up as much book knowledge as possible, but experience is a whole different thing and I would appreciate any advice you can give. Hope I don’t offend anyone by tagging. @Nicky @Covertgrower @MattyBear @dbrn32 @Myfriendis410
Also, feel free to tag anyone else who may be able to help out with advice!
Thank you guys so much and I hope you watch along for the grow!
