Hey all just about done soaking 3 Maui Wowie and 3 La Confidential and Ill be dropping them in some seed starter that I’ve used my two previous grows and just ordered my required FFOF soil for the transplants. I am looking at doing this all in a 4x4 and and hoping to only veg for a couple weeks before flip as if its a SOG. I know it would be best to keep them all the same variety but hoping to cash out on it. After my other grow finishes they will be under 4 qb boards. Just wanting to get my thread started so I have a place to start with all this excitement.
One thing I was thinking about with 6 plants and the size that my two previous grows ends up would it be smart to keep 5 gal pots just in case or could I use 3 gal pots? @Drinkslinger @Myfriendis410 @Juanhdtv @PurpNGold74
I can fit three 7 gal containers in a 2’x4’ space, so I’m sure six 5 Gallon containers will work in a 4’x4’. But, if you’re not letting them veg long, it might be a waste of soil.
My first grow was Maui and I let them go 50 days til flip roughly and these I’m thinking of 30ish it around 14-18”. As you can see @Drinkslinger in my other grow things can get out of hand I will have a second tent but would hate to have two flower tents at the same time

Picture is of my well water test. I have been using this water my two previous grows and had nutrient issues last grow could of been water or could of been lack of time/attention to details
Is “hardness-total= 1008” the water’s ppms?
That’s what I got from it. Depending time of year that fluctuates. I believe I was around 900ish during my first grow. I will test tonight when I water and see what it’s sitting at.
Wow my tap test out about 210-240
I’ve finally met someone with worse tap water than us haha! I can see why you would want to use purified water.
The main big difference one can deduce between the two is their units TDS is measured in parts per million or ppm while hardness is measured in grains per gallon. The relation between the two units is 1 grain of hardness is equal to 17.1 mg/mol or PPM in TDS .
So maybe the 900 was with some nutes. That was ages ago in my mind
So I have just figured out neither option works for my second tent location… so i have a shed and was thinking of building a location in the back and making it like 8x8 or 8x10. Now i would need to insulate it and it would have a closed off ceiling at 8’ and ill be just using the top as extra storage. So living in a frigid Midwest state that is not technically legal per say and needing to keep it 77 in there during the super cold months is this a possibility if the rest of the shed is not insulated and it’s at or below zero?
Still pretty high ppms… Purified for the win.
Im in the south so no idea on keeping the cold out but the heat does what it wants to down here. Outdoors seems like a nono in the summer.
Also tuned in and watching. Think i missd the finish up of ur last grow. So u may get a few likes later
So I have two peeping and waiting on the other four… hope they pop for me. If not I’ll be starting another group here tomorrow night I’d guess and keep rollin… I just received my ww autos and chocolope seeds as well so maybe it’s a sign to start two or three of the chocolope and keep it a straight photo grow
So all the seeds popped but one is not going to make it as it shriveled up Other than that my second tent will be here Sunday so yeah my vivosun 6” fan and filter kit is here and I am in the process of building a room out in my shed. It’s going to be insulated all the way around and I hope it will be warm enough in there during the winter anyway. I should have all the materials and start building next week. It will be 9x10 and the end game would be to have 2 4x4 tents on one side and 2 2x4 tents on the other side and a shelf on the back wall in between them holding all the stuff. Anyway… long and expensive journey ahead
Haven’t been on here in a while glad to see everyone going strong still
