So my first grow is definitely a learning experience (as it probably is for most). As my girls finish up flowering (projected harvest date around the beginning of July). I’ve got big plans for grow #2.
Gorilla Glue Auto flower (from ILGM)
I received seeds April 1st and immediately germinated 5. All 5 popped after 24 hours
Of the 5- I have 3 left (1 just wouldn’t grow- runt got pulled in the first couple weeks and 1 had some sort of mutation or something - almost dwarf like, so she got pulled from tent to make room for the other 3.
They are in a VIVOSUN Triangle Grow Tent with Bigger View Window for Indoor Plant Growing 41"x57"x71"
Growing under a , VIPARSPECTRA P1500 Full Spectrum LED Grow Light for Indoor Plants, Dimmable Plant Grow Lights
For the first month 20/4; now 18/6
Seeds were finished germinating in jiffy peat pellets and then placed in their ‘forever homes’ - 5 gallon fabric pots with a mix of about 2/3 FF Ocean Floor and 1/3 FF Happy Frog
I’m using a VIVOSUN 4 Inch 190 CFM Inline Fan with Speed Controller, 4 Inch Carbon Filter and 8 Feet of Ducting, Temperature Humidity Monitor for Grow Tent Ventilation
With 2 clip on fans and 1 small stationary fan that I placed on the led driver (I know it’s not needed but I figured it couldn’t hurt…
I also have 2 Mosthink LED Grow Light for Indoor Plants, 20W Plant Grow Light Strips, Auto On / Off Timer , 48 LEDs /4 Dimmable Levels, Light Bars for Gardening Seedlings Greenhouse run vertically on the tent side walls just for supplemental light…
I made the mistake of not sticking to a feeding or watering schedule like I should have- I just watered when pots felt lite and I feed Humboldt Secret: Golden Tree 1 or 2 times a week.
I also defoliate and installed a makeshift triangle trellis that I constructed from paracord to just try to even the canopy some. All 3 girls are in different stages of growth (I’m blaming the sub par Chinese lighting (impulse buy). My biggest girl is definitely in full flower; next biggest is starting to flower; the last is basically still veging almost flowering…
And here are my girls now-
So my 2nd Grow is going to be a rdwc 2 bucket system - 5 gallon buckets 6 in net baskets
I’m really considering investing in a Kessil H380 (anyone have any experience with these?)
