First time grow attempt and I’m pretty sure I failed miserably so far.
Basic grow tent set up as I’m clueless mostly:
4x2 Vivosun tent
1200watt KingLED blurple light (which I’m going to return, I have a Spider SF2000 on the way Tuesday to replace it)
Two 4" exhaust fans I mounted into sides of tent. One lower as intake, one upper as exhaust.
3 gallon fabric pots
Fox Farm Happy Frog soil
Fox Farm 3 pack of nutrients
GDP autoflower seeds x3 (from ILGM)
So, everything seemed to start well. I germinated in damp paper towels and all three popped. My “born on” date and into the soil was actually 4/20.
Two of the three popped out of the soil fine, although one had helmet head. I was able to lightly use saliva and remove seed head carefully with tweezers.
Looked fine for awhile, but we’re going on 3 weeks now, still not even really into true vegetative state and growth is stunted completely. The helmet head one is dying a slow death.
Anyways, I’m sure it’s a variety of things. I may have overwatered in the beginning, and overcompensated and underwatered as well. Also, my tent is in my back enclosed porch area and the floor is just decking, so I’m suspecting colder night time temps so far in NY affected growth considerably. I have no idea what temp and humidity is in tent. I did order a temp/humidity cheap monitor which comes Tuesday as well.
So, should I just bail and say screw it at this point? Germinate a few more and start again? I do have 7 gallon fabric pots, but I didn’t know if they’d be too big (looked big haha) so that’s why I went with 3’s. Is the Fox farm soil fine? Should I bother trying to look into perlite? (Mind you, I know nothing and don’t have perlite currently or even know what it is lol)
I’d like to do 3 plants in my tent and 4x2 should be large enough right?
