Lets set the stage:
Hello everyone, and hope your grows are going good. I’m starting out & having some trouble. I’ve been reading tons of forum stuff on ILGM, and there is so much information its overbearing.
Looking for some like minded growers to work with me through my grow. (Mentor??? Would be amazing, but community is always best).
First time grower
Date of sprout May 12th
Growing in southeast US, Hot Humid climate. It can get up to 95-105F, with 60-100% humidity.
Out in the Country surrounded by woods, but I have a good place out back that has lots of sunlight with breeze coming across the lake.
Under counter atm with shitty garden grow light linked below. Inside now as seedlings
Temp usually 70-75f Humidity 75-90% (Without greenhouse method)
Peet moss pellet for germination
Transplanted to FFoF small pot for now
Will eventually be in 5gal fabric pot
2 Skywalker OG, 1 Strawberry Cough, 1 Runtz
4 Pallets for bases (eventually I’m thinking trellis)
I have 3 & 5gal AC fabric pots
8 temp & humidity sensors
I have PH tester
I have soil tester
I have 1 water pump
1RV water filter (For Water hose)
Fox Farm nuttz
Mixing 1L cup
PH up & PH down
4 big bags of FFoF
No humidifier or dehumidifier
No ventilation as of yet due to wanting to grow outdoors
Tap here has local mineral water with high phosphorous with ph between 6.1 & 7.2
This Water comes only from local county water supply out in the sticks.
They do use Chlorine to filter so I will need to find out how to get this out of the water for feedings.
1st question: Should I use out the tap, or is there a easy way to filer out the chlorine?
At best I have a RV water filter for sediment, chlorine, and other minerals such as lead etc.<<<
<<<I got several different nutrient’s, but I have been told the first month just use FFoF so I will hold off on these questions>>>
I germinated inside in water then went to peet moss pellets in dome (I know shame on me. Next time rotor rooter)
Now I have them in small planter similar to a solo cup with circle drain offs at the bottom of the pot
Girls are each 2 to 3 inch tall.
Not all of them have fully got all 4 leaves on them. (kind of lanky seedlings).
I lost one to lack of light, as I have a really crappy light inside that I don’t know if I should even use.
This light was for my garden plants (link below to crappy light)
2nd Question: Should I put them outside due to the shitty light I have or buy a 300-450 Watt light for seedling / first of veg stage?
3rd question: If I put them out in the sun should I introduce them slowly, or just place them in the shade?
4th question: If I put them outside should I transplant into 5gal fabric pots now, then introduce in the shade?
Light on Amazon:
I know there are tons of factors I’m missing, but I’m sure we can discuss best steps moving forward.
Ask what criteria you need, and I will get you the information to assist. I will post pictures tomorrow morning.
Thanks for reading, and assisting when we chat!!
