Hi everyone, this is my first grow. I’m hoping to make enough medicine for personal use. Due to my location I have to maintain a certain amount that is decriminalized. I’m also not interested in making more than I need.
I hope to clip some branches and press them into rosin for usage while the rest of the flowers finish. (Not sure if this is a good idea or not). I have no expectation but learning and hopefully a usable harvest.
The GDP will be in a 3 gallon fabric pot (3lbs KIND soil on bottom, coco loco to 1" less than pot top)
In a 24 x 24 x 60 grow tent, in a closet
In a room that’s usually between 65 - 78 degrees with around 40 - 45% natural RH
The tent will have a 4" active exhaust filter setup that will vent into the top of the closet
with one 4" USB intake fan towards the tent’s mesh bottom opening, outside of the opening there will be an active carbon filter, the room has plenty of controlled air or fresh air available to it if needed
The RH can be adjusted manually as needed as well
The GDP will have an oscillating fan aimed at it’s canopy shortly after sprouting
The light (LED Samsung/Meanwell) will be positioned 18 - 24" above the canopy and adjusted as needed
Starting out I’m going to put the seed into it’s final destination and germinate there (sprinkle with water, cover if needed, ensure tent humidity is between 50 - 60%., light at 18" 12/12 to start)
Nutrients & Watering
Done as directed by KIND (no nutrients, do not water to excess, I’m going to weigh it as suggested to get a feel for watering in the beginning)
The water will be carbon filtered and left to sit for a min of 24 hours before watering, it’s PH will be adjusted shortly before watering using food grade up/down if needed (not between 6.3 - 7)
I plan to low stress train by bending and tying down branches and to also top the plant when it reaches it’s 5th node. I’m also going to remove weak branches / leaves and those that are light blocking.
During germination the light will be on a 12/12 cycle
When the leaves start growing out and nodes start appearing the light will change to 18/6
When its time to start flowering the light will change to 12/12
Items pending delivery, closet not empty and I am completely STOKED! I’ll be updating this thread early every week - stay tuned!
