Strain; Bag seed
Soil; organic with coco fibre, peat, natural bark fines, pumice.
System type? To be an indoor grow in tents set-up for seedlings/clones & veging/flowering 40x40x120cm (1ftx1ftx3ft) & 100x100x200cm (3ftx3ftx6ft7) in organic soil & nutrients. Still getting some parts to kit two tents as the seedling tent was spur of moment purchase because I want to maintain med supply.
PH of runoff or solution in reservoir? 6 on litmus paper. Waiting on ph pen ordered.
What is strength of nutrient mix? No nutrients as yet. Little lost here.
Light system, size? Currently 1000w Halogens while waiting for grow tent to set-up 400w MH, then hve HPS for flower stage. Gullwing & bat wing, 400w digital ballast. Digital timer. Looking into CFL for small tent ??? Not 100% on that.
Temps; Day, Night; hot in cupboard & hopefully holding heat overnight, currently not best conditions so hoping to improve. Waiting on hygrometer to be delivered. Have an analogue thermostat for hot & cold to use.
Humidity; Day, Night; Winter so probably moist at night with no lights, dry daytime under lights.
Ventilation system; Yes, if u count an oscillating fan & opening doors couple times a day. Waiting on tent to arrive. One centrifugal, one inline & one clip on fan for breeze to strengthen stems. Ducting & Carbon filter too
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier; nope hopefully don’t need in my climate as temps range from 6-30degrees Celsius most of the year. , will see what happens when tents sent up, don’t need those items for my home, fire in winter but summer fairly temperate here. So I’m hopeful the lights work for heating in tent in winter & putting tents in garage over summer shld help keep it cooler.
Just added this ticket, lost track of where I’d seen it posted before made this grow journal:green_heart:
Hi to anyone reading this I’m endeavouring to grow my own medicine and be a green fairy to some friends of mine with fibro & endo. My thumbs are very pink, as in I’m the opposite of being green thumbed, my track record with gardens & house plants is 100% died. So far two of the four cannabis bag seeds I planted have survived me. I’m making this grow journal because these last 15 days as a newbie grower have been soo exciting and I want to record the experience while learning from all the experienced growers on this site.
So far I’ve germinated bag seed, via water cup method & wet paper towel, planted using organic potting soil on July 5th in small clay pots. Placed on plastic stacked containers , to get close to two 1000w halogen spot lights, with an oscillating fan, in a white painted large wardrope. Not ideal but I made do with what I had at the time I felt compelled to ‘just grow it’. So far I’ve only watered when they looked & felt dry, no nutrients, I’ve been opening up the wardrope during light cycle to refresh the air but not too much as its winter here currently, but since no air replacement in wardrope I thought best to air it occasionally. 16/8 is the current light cycle, on 7:30am when my fiancé wakes & off 11:30pm when he goes to bed, he wasn’t impressed when he got home from work and I had started my first grow, he knew I would be and agreed to let me but didn’t know I’d start when I did. He came around when two seeds sprouted in the 9th of July tho.
So with continual research and watching you tube videos I got my head around the fact that I need to invest in my grow, so I researched how to set up a grow tent & ordered a heap of expensive stuff, it all worked out perfectly because we suddenly had a buyer for a car my mechanic partner has been trying to sell for a year & a half, sold the car and got cash right when I needed it most. So I’m sitting here waiting for all the equipment to be delivered, hoping I did my ordering effectively, because I think my sprouts need a better growing environment.
I’ve jumped right in the deep end and got a 40cm x 40cm x 120cm seedling/clone tent, also a 100cm x 100cm x 200cm tent, the seedling tent was a last min spur of the moment purchase because I need to maintain production for making medicine. I think I need a few more things to outfit two tents but since I’ve only two sprouts currently I think I’ve some time up my sleeves. I have three fans coming; a centrifugal extractor (came in kit with ducting & carbon filter), an inline fan for I take & a clip on oscillating fan. The grow lights I got a 400w MH & 400w HPS, 400w digital dimmable ballast, a gull wing & a bat wing for MH & HPS, grow lush heat & cold thermostat, digital light timer, a drying net, Rachet hangers & light hanger, cable ties, large clay pots for transplanting. I’m planning on getting jubilee clips & hygrometer today.
So I am worried my plants aren’t very green like pics & videos I see online, but I’ve never seen a grow before so these two babies are my first non dried & bagged cannabis, I actually felt like the plant version of carnivorous when I medicated in my room where the sprouts are, well seedlings now I think. I can’t wait to set-up my grow tents and couldn’t sleep till 4am because I’m obsessed with my grow. Here are some pics for exeperienced grower opinions, the day they sprouted & yesterday on day 11 since sprouting
