First time grower, Any help appreciated

Good afternoon everyone, I am overwhelmed with the amount of support available on this forum, and I was looking for any bit of advice I could get. This community seems amazing and I am happy to be apart of it. I have decided to start with two autoflowers for my first grow. Northern Lights and Blueberry(the babies have just been moved from water into papertowel/ziplocs). My goal is to keep this stealth and smells to a minimum. My current list of supplies

  • opulent systems 32"x32"x63" grow tent
  • California lightworks solarXtreme 500
  • root organics soil
  • AC infinity s4 inline fan
  • 4"x12" Phresh filter
  • 1 28" tower fan
  • Exhale XLc02
  • general organics nutes and ph up/down
  • 5 gallon fabric pots
  • wiztech ph/tds meter

I probably went a little overboard on the light, but I wanted to make sure my first grow was worth my money and time. I still need to configure the spacing between the plants and light. I should mention I will attempt LST when the time is right(also still need to configure a time for this). my plan is to keep the ph levels between 6.5-6.8 at all times (water/soil), humidity between 40-70%, and temp between 68-77 degrees. I am extremely new to this so ANY advice is appreciated.(watering frequencies, nute amount) Thank you all so much for your time and I hope to have a first successful grow.


Welcome to the forum, great people around to help you.

Have you put a RH and temp gauge inside your tent yet?


@bustoutanotherthou Here is location of Grow Guides and all other info you need to succeed successfully.
Just click on the blue words, “200+ Marijuana Grow Guides - Indoor & Outdoor Strains | ILGM”
(it’s really not 200 Guides)

Awesome…you did your diligence, well done! Good luck!

So indoor, autos, LST. I would highly recommend reading this. @GST93 is on his first grow, and did outstanding. (Almost time for harvest)


Thanks @Zee!

@bustoutanotherthou Welcome to the community! It’s crazy how much information is on here, and the people willing to help. I’d say take it one day at a time. Reading content specific to the week I’m in stopped me from getting ahead and forgetting details.

If you have any LST questions, or want some help, just tag me! :call_me_hand:t3:


Welcome to ILGM!



No such thing as going overboard with lights :joy:

Good vibes and good luck :v:

Welcome to the most positive and helpful community possibly on the entire internet. I just got to the final flush today on my first grow with the help of people around here. I suggest reading other grow diaries of people using the same style as yourself. This way in the future, you will know who to tag for specific questions. I’m a hydro guy so I found my people. Good luck and happy growing!
