Good morning everyone!
Almost done with my first ever grow! It’s very exciting to say.
I have a couple weeks left until I harvest my last 2 plants. After that I’m gonna start a new grow and am just looking for some pointers.
Here’s what I got-
Seeds- Blue Dream (F), Phantom Cookie (F), Tropicana Banana (F) and one seed I found in a dispensary border that I was considering trying to grow, it’s Tangerine Haze. All seed bank seeds and I think I can assume that the one from the dispensary is good.
Medium- Happy Frog
Nutrients- This is what I have, the FF trio and SweetRaw. Are these ok to use? What should I use in addition to these or instead of these?
Water- Tap. 7-7.5 PH and around 350PPM. Always PH balance to around 6.7
Container- 5 gallon buckets
Lights- 2 150W full spectrum LED grow lights
Humidity- Usually up to 65-70 but less if I have to run the dehumidifier
Enclosure- 4’ x 2’ x 6’ standard grow tent. At one point I had 6 plants in here but it was obviously too crowded. This round I’m gonna do 4.
Fans- Spared no expense, 3 in the tent and the exhaust fan is pretty decent.
Going into end of summer/fall the temps will drop more (New England) and I’ll be able to regulate better. As of right now the hottest it’s gotten inside the tent was around 86 when it was almost 100 outside.
What are the disadvantages of planting right in the 5 gallon bucket? Just soil moisture management?
Ive been looking for a week to week guide to use but I can’t find anything fruitful.
Posted some pics of what I have so far-
This one was my Hydro Phantom Cookie that died around week 8. Definitely not alot of trichomes but I tried some last night and thought it wasn’t bad at all and I’m an everyday smoker that only smokes dispensary weed.
This one is my best one that’s got a few weeks left (what do you think?). This is my Blue Dream that I grew in Miracle Grow (I know, I know… No more Miracke Grow). This is last night, a few days into week 11.
My last plant is Tropicana Banana. It got stunted when it was around week 3 and never fully recovered, so it’s not very tall or wide. The nugs are on the smaller side compared to the Blue Dream but they look pretty dense. I don’t have any pics of that one but I’ll throw a few up later.
