I am fascinated with this whole process

I am 63 yrs young and have grown vegetables for years but never weed. Many friends have, but my first time. I decided to do it because I have constant pain from Fibro and am tired of living with it. Hoping using a tincture will help as we will be selling our home and will be full time RV’ers and I want to enjoy my time out on the road.

So I bought Black Widow. I am now three weeks into my grow and am learning so much. I did the water method to get two of the seeds to sprout. One sprouted right away and the other split, but the root did not emerge from it. I planted the first one and waited another week for the other one to root. It looked like it was doing nothing so I thought, what the heck and split it open with my fingernails. Planted it and it is growing fine :slight_smile:

Tomorrow I am going to transplant them into my 3 gallon pots. Here is a photo of my two babies. What do you think? Does everything look okay?


Looks nice. They have really nice stem!!

Thank you! Not really sure what I’m doing but I don’t think it is that much different from growing tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, etc. I check my PH every other day and it has been averaging 6.4 - 6.9. I just use the water from our facet which comes from our well.

What are you using for soil? How often are you watering, and what lights/how close? I see some upwards cupping.

Otherwise they look really good. :+1:

Nice job. Looking healthy.

I am using FoxFarm Ocean soil. The lights are about 8" away but they are getting moved this weekend. I was wondering what was causing the leaves to curl upward. I’m using my photography lights and they have a fan in them. 5600K. The plants are also in my 12" photo cube. They are getting moved into my 3’ X 3’ photo cube this weekend. Using all of my photo stuff instead of buying special stuff.

Thank you for your tip about the light!! :slight_smile:

Thanks, I just can’t get over the skunk smell at this young development of the plants. I went to let the dogs out and walked into the garage and my first smell was skunk and I immediately thought about how could they smell that strong over here and then released someone had hit one out on the road LOL!!!

Hope yours are growing well! :blush:

I’d bring the lights up just a bit. That’s probably all it is.

It’s probably time for a transplant too. My rule of thumb is to transplant once the leaves reach the outer perimeter of their container.

Same here. Unless you want small plants.

Thanks. It’s going really well so far.

Looks great.
Skip the 3 gallon pots though.
As you are a gardener realize that this is a weed, grows like one, and hates transplanting.
Go from seedling to forever home if at all possible!
I would recommend 10 gallons :slight_smile:

Good luck with your boondocking life!

That’s a lot of clones.

That’s after I gave 5 to the owner of the grow store and there are 8 left that “could” be planted but didn’t make the cut.

I’m thinking the 3 gallon with be there forever place. The is supposed to be more of a bushy variety and does not grow real tall.

I like growing indica dominant strains also.

Are making tinctures with them?

I like indica because the colas are so big and dense.


The 3 gallon pots will not be sufficient. Bush varieties do not have smaller root masses, the plant above ground just forms in a nice organized manner.
