Hi everyone! I live in Maine and have never grown any plants before. I was given 3 feminized Triple Cheese seeds in June that I germinated and moved into my grow containers. My soil was a rich top soil mixed heavily with lobster composite. The containers have been outside pretty much the entire time and the plants have really thrived. I’ve used the blue crystal Miracle Gro for nutrients a few times and so far they seem very healthy. The seeds popped after only 2 days of germinating and are currently 60 days old from sprout.
The nights are beginning to cool down and my plan is to construct a basic grow container in my garage using 2”x4”s and other scrap wood I have laying around. I plan on making the box 7 feet tall, 6 or 7 feet long, and about 4 feet deep. The walls will be 1/2” plywood lined with tin foil. It will have in/out airflow from a small fan. The light I’ll be using is a a Roleadro 1,000 watt led full spectrum light.
Given the fact that the plants are right at 2 months old, if I were to move them into the grow box in the next week or two, what would you suggest the light schedule be? Should it be somewhere around 14-16 hours on, 8-10 hours off until buds begin developing? And once I see buds developing would I adjust the light to 12 on, 12 off?
Thank you all for any advise you could offer to a first timer!
