Hey guys, I’m a first time grower and I’d like to get some feedback on my set up. I purchased some gorilla glue auto seeds from ILGM as well as soil and nutrients from a pot for pot. I currently have my seed positioned about 21 in from my grow light which is a VIPARSPECTRA 600W dimmable light @ 40%. If you guys can give a first time grower some tips I’d appreciate it! Thanks!!
Welcome to the forum.
Tip #1…Do not over water. Its tempting to want to water em a lot. But they do really well on the dry side.
#2…Watch the seedling close for the first few days. If she starts stretching upward lower the light.
Hope your grow goes well.
Question: as far as water is concerned, I water my seed with bottled water but I just received a ph reader and the water is reading at 8.41. Is that good? If not, how can I lower the ph level in the water?
Someone suggested you calibrate the meter.
After calibrating if its still high you can use a couple drops of lemon juice (acidic) to lower
or citric acid if you have some
I just tested water from my brita and it got it down to about 6.8…that’s ok?
6.8 is fine for soil
@dbrn32 this is the one
Like Spiney said, 6.8 will work, but optimum is between 6.0 and 6.5.

No I do not and thank you for your help!
Hey guys, just wanted to give an update on how my grow is going and to see if you guys have any tips…I started on 8/28 and here are some progress photos since then …(last photo was 9/1)
Here’s 9/2…I had an overwatering problem that I was able to correct by sitting the pellet on a paper towel for two sessions for 30-45 mins
Also, in about two days, I have to leave out of town for a week but my roommate will be doing maintenance on the plant(water, lighting) before I leave, am I able to place my pellet into my main pot? I’d like to do it vs my roommate doing it lol
Looks like it’s ready for it’s forever home.
Agree with @Deepsix
Plant that baby before you leave.
Yoooo I need advice with how my plant looks and is it ready for picking
