Last year I decided I wanted to smoke my own smoke! I think so far the hardest part for me was just getting started, I had no idea where to start and no clue what was actually happening. Around the same time, a buddy of mine had just started growing just a couple months before me, Gave me a boost in motivation to get started after I saw his LEDs. Very sorry the pictures are rotated
I inherited a 400w MH + some CFLs and got to work,
I was giving my plants minimal water (cups, oops), and after about 2 months put them under a 1000w MH, Which got them to grow a bit taller. After around 100 days I switched them to flower and began watering them with gallons of water every few days.
Hobo farm also growing in my tent, breeding an army and organizing my death for when I’m too stoned to sense them
It has been a pretty fun 5 months, Cut my first clones (sorry the picture is sideways) . Still haven’t had lots of luck germinating yet, Currently germinating some seeds I’m hoping to smoke in the fall time. I’m about 50/50 with getting seeds popped, and I’m purchasing from Attitude and Singleseedcentre, They arrived so still seems reputable to me!.
Here we have my flowers at week 3
And here we are in the middle of week 6
I am going to stop feeding them and begin just using water now, Theres lots of things I would love to experiment with that I have not, Co2, Molasses, Silica, etc. But I’ve just barely started to understand this coco I am using is the digestive system for this living embodiment of sexy smells. For now I am just wanting to harvest my first plant, I have told myself “lets not complicate things” For my next batch I hope to learn the best methods of bug prevention, while yielding a great tasting and looking result. I have many questions that seem like a stretch to find answers for, But any feedback or discussion anyone has to offer to me will help me figure out the correct way to do things
I have used Coco Loco, Ocean Mix, as soils, and Fox Farm’s Dirty dozen nutrient pack for feeding. But I am open to any suggestions for any nutrient mixes that are top notch to someone with good experiences using them.
Please give your feedback if you have any!
