Thanks for all the great stuff here!
I’m about to embark on my first indoor grow. Here’s what I’ve settled on so far:
Space: 2x4 grow tent
Lighting: Quantum Board 260W (2 panel) v1 kit
Media: DWC (5 gal buckets)/rockwool cubes and clay pebbles
Food: General Hydroponics 3 step plus hydro guard and cal-mag’
Hoping to fit 4 buckets in the tent. (ordered, but not arrived yet)
I have 4 types of seed all from ILGM (all fem):
Looking to try out some different strains for medicinal purposes. So maximum yield is not as important as trying out different ones–but a quality bud is important so we can truly evaluate them. Lastly, intention is to turn 70% of the harvest into extracts for making edibles–I’ll likely vape/smoke the rest (my wife can’t stand the smoke, thus the edibles).
my question is: Should I try growing 1 of each type, or just a couple at once (2 of each?) or 4 the same?
At this point, planning on using the “main-lining” technique (seems easy enough) to ensure a relatively even canopy…but not sure how well that would work with different strains.
Any thoughts or concerns on the best approach to selecting what to start with?
Lots more questions, but staring with which seeds to grow seemed like a good place to start…
