My first grow..the ups and downs so far

So here’s my visual journey so far. Started with 3 seeds, unfortunately when it came time to switch to flower, one turned out to be a dude. Still learning as I go but I’m hoping the harvest makes all worth it.

Two outta three isn’t bad. Girls look good, must of done something right!!!

Looks like some pics didn’t upload :grimacing: did we miss anything?

All the pictures uploaded out of order :man_facepalming:t2: This is the most recent. Had to pull the trigger on a dehumidifier. Was hovering around 60 for about a week and a half. Tried Damprid to no avail. Bought a used whirlpool dehumidifier off OfferUp for $60. Dropped down to 43% in only a few hours! Learning more and more.

Those flowers look lovely, @Toobs360 . You’re way, way ahead of me, but it’s nice for me to have something to aspire to. Good luck with the rest of your grow! How old are your plants?

The nodes look pretty spaced out. I’d be concerned with a lack of lighting. Looks like you’ve had a lot of stretch. She’ll bare beautiful buds but you might not yield as much as you wanted. Still looks wonderful :heart_eyes:

She’s healthy, but as @FNG101v2 mentioned, what are you using for lights, and what distance from the plants?

@WonkaMan Have been growing since March 15

@Drinkslinger @FNG101v2 300w LED about 10 inches from top of canopy.

I know there are quite a few variables but guesstimate…how much do you thing my yield will be altogether? They’re about 3ft 8in right now and I topped twice.

@Toobs360 which 300w led? Chances are it’s only pulling 120-150w. The top colas will fatten up, but anything lower will probably be disappointing. I’m certainly no expert, but my guess is under 2oz.

Good job @Toobs360
Really well done so far
Keep lovin em as you have and you are gonna have a great harvest
Happy growing

@Drinkslinger VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 300W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum for Indoor Plants Veg and Flower

This one?

136w at the wall.

@Drinkslinger that’s the one. So you’re saying more light is needed? Also, unrelated question, I’ve noticed my ladies have no scent yet. When should I expect that?

136w for two plants of that size is pretty low. The rule of thumb for lighting is 35-50watts for each square foot.

The smell typically increases the further the plant gets into flower. Although a lot of the scent intensity is genetic and and even environmental. I’ve been growing GSC for a few years and it barely smells until late flowering. I’ve got some Bruce banner going right now, and at 5 weeks of veg it’s already stinky.

@dbrn32 is always one of most knowledgeable and helpful with lighting. Maybe he can assist you with answering lighting specifics.

Out of likes, but thanks for tag.

I think @Drinkslinger is on the money. With vipars I’d shoot for around 50 watts per square foot. Getting into some better lighting can drop that quite a bit.

Thanks so much for the advice guys. Truthfully? Didn’t intend to grow them that big haha.

Lol fair enough. You clearly will have bud to harvest and at the end of the day we are all here to gain two things. Knowledge of growing and more bud :sweat_smile: Happy growing! Can’t wait to see the harvest!
