My first grow and I'm doing it my way

Much appreciated my friend the light will be ordered today. This is really getting interesting. I just really started into growing crops and I’m having amazing results in my regular outdoor garden as well. 8ft tall corn and 6ft tomatoes and all achieved with my worm tea as fertilizer.
I also ordered an 8 in air movement system which will help alot too.

Howdy all been a few days since I updated lots has happened so I thought I would update. First was a noob move I watered and fertilized and spaced out doing ph test 4 days later after I put them through the 36 hrs darkness to start sexing them they were really turning yellow so tested soil and was over 8 ph.
So I ran 2 gallons of 5.5ph water through all and they really responded well ph of soil is still over 6.5 a bit but I can adjust on next watering.
Got a new 8in exhaust fan in the tent and dang is it nice. Just love the functions on it set hi and low range of humidity and temp and it monitors all 4 same time 10 speed fan moves some air. I have it set on 6 and it works great. Here are some pics am going to reset the plants on sunday.



There is the fan i got

Also my new light is being made and will ship soon and I am going to put all the plants on Roberts fertilizer program this round because I didn’t get the soil right for just worms. Next grow for sure. This grow is all about learning

Looks awesome.
When you set up the new light hang it high and set dimmer down low and adjust things with more power or lowering lights as they will need some adjustment and in veg don’t need as much light as they will when flowering.

Keep us updated

Thanks brother I’ll do just that I’m planning on putting the new light in the center of the room and using my other 2 lights on the ends of the room

#skydiver you were so right that new light is amazing. I’ll be ordering a second one for sure now that I’ve seen this one. Thanks for sound advice also first female showed herself. I’m looking forward to getting the males out and really setting up the scrog.

Love the new light as I’m sure the ladies are too…and you lol.
Just keep an eye on them with the new light. Height above in veg maybe 36-42” above and maybe 40% to start out. Also take a look at the other 2 fixtures to make sure they aren’t blocking the light coming from the new one.

Here is a couple ideas if you need to gain some head space for moving the lights up higher later on as the stock cables I felt were too long so I modified things but left the original cables hooked up (on one of them anyway) too as a back up just in case Something failed with my rigging …lol

Also if you want to notify a member #warkat doesn’t work you need to use @warkat … # nope @yep.

Grow grow grow your dope

Much appreciated bud good idea on the light hookup going to need all the headspace I can muster.
Being my first grow I’ve messed some stuff up but that’s how I learn. By God I’ll mess some more up before I’m done too. Bet I still get a few nice nugs to enjoy tho haha

You can always make lemonade from those extra lemons.
You can consider doing a SOG
