I made a post on here about 2 weeks on here now deleted just wanted to give an update see if you all have any advice. It will be greatly appreciated.
2 weeks ago(May 4th)
Plants were 22 days from sprout
6 bag seeds from very good bud
Planted each seed straight in 5 gal buckets with 10 1/4” holes in bottom for drainage outdoors
Using miracle grow performance organic potting mix no nutes
Germinated in wet napkin prior to planting
Getting about 7-8 hours of direct sunlight
Watering every 2-3 days with 2gal’s of tap water split between the 6 plants
Live in southeast us and weather was all over the place
Ph around 7
Advice given on my last post was to change soil and water less.
Update and changes made(May 18th)
36 days from sprout now
About 6 days ago (May 12th) I Switched to roots organic original soil on all 6 plants and used same 5 gal buckets. Completely got rid of the miracle grow
Been using a moisture meter to measure moisture content and I haven’t watered them since transplanting to roots organic soil. We did get some rain today and they got some water today.
Ph is now 6.2-6.5
Weather and sun have became a lot more consistent lately
My plans, statements, and questions:
I took all of the advice from the previous thread I posted and applied it. Thank you all so much. I believe the advice definitely helped. It is now deleted due to paranoia and my location lol. I plan to transplant to 30 gallon smart pots once sex is determined and I’m being conservative and estimating 2/6 will be female. Trashing males immediately after identifying. I mixed up some sub cool super soil and it is currently “cooking”. I plan to use 1/2 super soil and 1/2 roots organic on top when I transplant to 30 gallon and I don’t plan on using any nutes. They are in the woods in my backyard where I cleared out a spot for them to get good sunlight. I have it camouflaged well but I would prefer for them to stay below the 6’ fence line. Pics from 2 weeks ago and pics from today attached. I know I made plenty of mistakes in the beginning like the following; straight to 5 gal buckets, using miracle gro, overwatering, and I’m sure some things I haven’t realized yet.
I’m looking for any advice/input on the improvements I’ve made and opinions on my future plans. Also, please give me any feedback on how the plants look now and anything you all notice from pics or info I need to do differently please. Thank you all so much in advance!! This is a great forum by the way I love it here
