Hello my fellow ‘botanists’! This is my first grow and I’d love to get some feedback! I’ve gone pretty low on the budget here and would just like some advice as I go about this journey.
I purchased some feminized ‘Nova OG’ seeds from twisted trees autoflower.
I planted these gals (I hope) on Aug 6 with them Sprouting the next day. I have been using water pH’d at about 6.5. I have only watered once since I planted on day 6 after germination.
I have them in my spare bedroom closet with no tent and no white paint on the wall for reflection of light.
Medium is Happy Frog soil.
3 gal smart pots
Using a cheap Merkisa Grow Light from Amazon currently.
My Temps average from 74 to 81 degrees F.
RH varies from 49 to 64%
Light is roughly 14 inches away from the top of the seedling. I used to have it at 24" as per manufacturer suggestion.
I have the light cycle going at 18/6
Their stems are quite long and I plan on adding another light here shortly. I have done some research and realized that I have fallen for the trap many of us first time growers fall into with grow lights. I’ll have the Merkisa “1000w” which puts out roughly 100w at the wall and then I just purchased a Phlizon cree cob 1000w to add to the mix. I’m still in the return period for both of these, so if anyone can recommend something at about $200 USD that is on par or better with these two together it would be much appreciated!
I’m open for all tips and tricks that this community may suggest! Let me know how I’m doing!
