Had my first grow last summer. Loved it, and ready for more. So I’m putting together a grow room (well grow tent I guess), and I have some ILGM auto seeds ready to go – I’m looking to grow 3 autos in soil. This is what I’ve ordered thus far:
2x4x6 CoolGrows Tent
HLG 260W XL
AC Infinity Cloudline T6 Inline Fan with Carbon Filter
7" clip on oscillating fan
5 gallon smart pots
Fox Farms Ocean Forest Soil and nutrient trio
So am I missing anything that I need to get up and running? Thanks in advance!
Risers and saucers or elevated racks (highly recommend racks) to sit the pots on.
A good quality low nutrient starter soil. Either for the germinated seeds in small containers or to use as a buffer if planted directly into the 5 gallon pots.
CalMag calcium magnesium supplement, You will need it at some point with the FF products. Not a knock against FF (I use it) just how it is.
Ph up and down.
Reusable syringes. I like the 10 ml and 20 ml sizes for measuring and dispensing the nutrients.
What auto seeds are you starting with?
Good luck and welcome.
Potting soil, dont plant freshly germinated seeds In to ffof as it may be to hot for them. Transplant into the ffof. I may have missed it but also get some perlite to mix with the FFOF to a volume of about 20/25%.
Blueberry took about two weeks less to grow than AH
Overall I would say BB is easier to grow than AH. AH was a little more sensitive to nutrient overload and ph imbalance
Just incase they grow like mine did I would recommend growing one strain at a time. Light management becomes an issue if their heights are much different.
Wow, both those plants look amazing. That’s a good point about growing different strains in same tent…didn’t even cross my mind (noob). Sounds like you think the blueberry might be a good plant to start with? Then maybe try the AH for round 2? Since you’ve obviously grown both, do you think 3 plants in 5 gallon pots in 2x4 makes sense?
Have you grown any white widow autos? That’s my other option.
