Indoor grow journal

So I wanted to document my second attempt at an indoor grow. My first attempt was a joke and I was not happy with results , I grew 2 sour diesel plants in my indoor grow box which yielded probably about 1 oz of some loose and crappy buds, I had a simultaneous sour diesel outdoor grow which yielded much better results.

I will be doing things differently this time around. 1 thing I will be doing very very different is I will be growing 1 plant inside of grow box instead of 2. Here are the specs of this grow.

  • Seed strain: sour diesel, feminized, auto flower
  • Method: Hydroponics
  • Vessels: Grow box
  • PH of Water: 7
  • nutrient solution: ph perfect grow, grow, bloom, micro, over drive and big bud
  • Indoor
  • Light system: Next Generation Quasar LED Lighting Full spectrum lighting for veg to flower spectrums; 420nm to 460nm veg & 630nm to 660nm flower
  • Temps; Day/ 75 Night/ 70
  • Humidity; Na
  • Ventilation system; Carbon fabric intake and exhaust system
  • AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier: NA
  • Co2; No

I feel like I have learned a lot by my trials and errors of the first indoor grow and also all of the knowledge available on this great forum, wish me luck going forward!

Just to stop any issues before they start.
Should ph to 5.8-6.0 for hydro.
And good luck with round 2. :+1:

@Chefweedude , Good luck

Thanks for the tip, that is why I love this site! Should I maintain that ph level the same throughout the whole grow? I will start adding some Bloom City ph down to achieve the 5.8- 6 ph level

Yes. That’s where it works best.
Water temp is another one to watch too.
65-68 deg f iirc.
I’ll tag a couple experienced growers.

@Myfriendis410 and @peachfuzz both do hydro setups and know it far better than me. :wink:
Any tips for @Chefweedude fellas ?
I’m out of my element :v:

Do you think it will be 16 weeks? I only ask because I was basing this grow on a 10 week cycle, or are you including drying and curing times?

I think that is 10 weeks of flowering phase

3 weeks - seedling
4-6 weeks -veg
9-11 weeks - flower
The 16 weeks @kellydans said is probably the minimum

The Breeders guide time is just an estimate. Sometimes the estimate on flower time it’s pretty close but overall usually need to add a little time. Also every plant is different. Just my thoughts good luck

Per square meter . On a good grow.

That paragraph does seem a bit misleading.
But do some research. Hydroponics requires low ph. As low as 5.5.
That is what i read. I tried it at 5.8 , had some success. Not as good as media though.

Good luck man hope for great success

So I took the temp of the water and it was 76*. Is that okay or should I try and lower it?
