If first you don't succeed, try, try again

@BMy first grow has finally ended after many mistakes by yours truly. I managed to harvest enough weed to hold me over to the next harvest, which I hope will be an improvement over the first grow. I now have the buds drying on a line in my basement, so as of yet I don’t know how good the weed will be.
During my first grow, I didn’t ask enough questions and I did many things without asking advice first. I didn’t do enough reading prior to the start of my first grow, but I have since remedied that by trying to read and absorb as much info as possible. However, along with my mistakes, I learned a great deal and the information on this site has been a great help along with all of the advice from all the great folks here on ILGM.

On 11/12 I placed one Green Crack seed and one Jack Herrer seed into glasses of PH water.
11/13, after 30 hours in water, placed both seeds in plastic containers of FFHF into which I had sprinkled Mykos.
11/15, both seeds emerged from the soil and began their journey from seed to weed!!

My girls have broken ground and we are on our way!!!

All suggestions accepted. Thanks @Jitters

I’m in week 4 flower on a Jack Herer and it’s a strong performing plant so far. I’m in hopes of getting 12 oz of bud from it if nothing goes sideways haha!

@Myfriendis410, this is the first time I have attempted to grow either the JackH or GreenCrack and I am hoping that between the two of them, I can get some pain relief, etc. Have you ever ingested any of the JH yet? @Jitters

@laurap, thanks, my first grow was a long tortuous journey, but as they say “that which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. So right about now I feel Superman LOL. I have had some problems but I am more excited now than ever. I am positive this grow will be a success!!!
Happy growing to you too Laurap.

I have not, but I’m told it’s a favorite at the dispensaries.


#13

I made it through the first grow, but it wasn’t pretty, LOL. I am trying to absorb as much information as possible, but when you get to my age, it ain’t easy to recall as much as when I was younger, LOL. Having a blast though and am slowly becoming addicted.
Best of luck to you too @Alton66 and thanks for the words of encouragement. @Jitters


#14

Welcome back @Jitters you will soon find out that it gets easier once that first grow is done! Looking forward to tagging along!


#15

Keep the faith! I easily killed all house plants but got a good harvest & halfway through another. When in doubt ask. Nothing is stupid except not asking. Remember you’re their mother earth. If she wouldn’t you probably shouldn’t.


#16

Thanks @Bob31, it’s good to be back and I am really excited about this grow.


#17

@Laurap, I have had no experience growing anything except toenails LOL, but I have learned there is enough experience on this site to even teach black thumbs like me to grow some good plants!! In typical male fashion, I didn’t ask directions along the way during my first grow but this time I plan to use the power of the force and ask when necessary!!!


#18

Just listen to her she will tell you everything you need to know you will learn how to read her


#19

@Sirsmokes @Jitters

I totally agree! You will learn to read your plants, but you have to spend time with them to do so. They will tell you what they want and need.
