Northam is a total pothead!! I’m convinced! LOL!!
I started the seedlings early too! July 1st is when they went into the 4gal. pots.
In my research I saw everyone using 5gal bags and 3 gal bags and or pots, I saw the 4gal low/wide pots at Lowes, and after watching this cats YouTube where he recommended low/wide over tall/narrow I just kinda decided on them.
I did a few guerilla grows in my youth, and even tried a 400w metal halide - which I actually still have! LOL!! But they didn’t amount to much.
This is by far my most successful start - ain’t crossed the finish yet!!
I did have one stand-out grow that produced a huge purple plant and about 3 gallon size ziplocs of buds, and much leaf!!
My inside grow was sabotaged by mites! The extra room I built the grow room in was carpeted, and I tried but couldn’t get rid of the bugs - and the woman wouldn’t let me rip out the carpet!
That was all pre-96! My last real attempt at any kind of grow.
Late 20s - time to make some money…so I could buy more weed! LOL!
So, more or less, yeah - first grow that might actually work! LOL!
I totally agree, I think Spider Farmer is a great value for the money! I’m totally happy, and in the long run I’m the one who has to live with it! If I get 2 decent harvest it’s paid for in full!
There’s a ton of videos on YouTube of guys doing some impressive grows with SF equipment. It was after watching one of those vids I decided to get the 1000.
In fact - long story, but I just got a 2.3x2.3 SF tent for a plant I’m force flowering.
I started a bunch of seeds for a few friends and they didn’t all find homes, so…in Virginia it doesn’t become a felony until you hit 11. So I have 10. LOL!
Two of the ladies ended up sharing the same pot outside, and I know that’s not good, but I ran out of acceptable media to grow in. Time went by and they didn’t get separated, so experiment! LOL!
Flowering time on Granddaddy Purple is 9 weeks or so. I’m gonna see what it does. LOL!
Night 5 tonight and she’s showing pre-flowers pretty quickly already!
I’ve got 3 in the tent - but 7 on the deck! LOL!
In the tent is 2 New York Diesel and a Super Skunk. All photo - and trained way too late myself actually.
Autos can’t stand up to a whole lot of training due to their quick nature. Which is appealing really.
I originally bought the small tent as a “tobacco barn” to dry and cure the harvest this fall, but recently I’m thinking I could get another 1000 and run 2 autos in there while I’m training a couple of photos in the 2x4…
Granddaddy Purple - bushy, up front
NYD - tall, lanky in rear
Totally neglected tomatoes - foreground LOL!
I have got to stop smoking and posting!!
edit: If you look low between the 2 NYD you can see the un-trainable Skunk that got kicked out of the tent!!
It has loved the sun this week and grown a good 3" in the first 4 days out there!!
Who doesn’t love a good skunk?!? Ans she smells soooo good!!
