I believe the title speaks for itself so I am going to jump right into things. I am already about 18 days out from these babies sprouting.
First off my equipment:
My tent is a 2x4 tent standing approx 5 1/2 feet high. It has been completely sterilized from head to toe. Inside and connected to my powerbar is a 4” intake fan, a small clip fan, and a floor fan. I also have a charcoal filter attached to an outgoing fan with 6” ducting. Once the grow begins I will introduce a temp controlled space heater and small humidifier.
My lights (for now) are two 300watt Viparspectras. These lights are decent for veging and with the right feed and care can grow pretty decent flowers.
These are what the lights can produce with the right amount of love. The only problem I have with these lights is that they produce airy flowers and are nowhere near as dense as I would like to grow. I am hoping (fingers crossed!) that I will be able to afford a quantum board for my next flower stage…
For my medium I will be growing in Promix hp. Once seeds were germinated they were popped into solo cups with the promix and watered very gently with 5.8ph tap water.
After they grow out of their solo cups I will be transfering them into 3 gallon fabric pots and then lastly into 5 gallon fabric pots.
My base nutrients are MICRO GROW BLOOM ph perfect from advanced nutrients. I will also be using a big bud booster in flower and a flawless finish for the final flush. I may buy more boosters in the future for these girls.
My two plants are from Dinafem. I love this company and swear by their seeds. I have always had strong resilient plants that produce great yields. I will be growing one Purple Orange cbd and one Dinamed cbd plus.
My ultimate goal is to mainline these two girls into 16 colas each, set up a scrog net to support and flip the lights.
I wish for this grow journal to be as much a learning experience for myself as it is for anyone reading. I very much encourage everyone to leave any tips, tricks or opinions that they have along the way. I am just as excited to learn from you guys as I am to grow and log my girls. Let’s get this party started!!
A big thanks to @TDubWilly for the warm welcome to this forum and encouragement to bring my journal here.
