New member here: My Northern Lights baby

Hello. Just wanted to introduce myself, and give feedback on my recent purchase.
I recently bought some of the feminized Northern Lights seeds. I must say, the delivery time exceeded my expectations, arriving about a week earlier than anticipated. They arrived in discreet packaging. 5 star service all the way.

I attempted my first grow about a year ago, with a seed I found in some weed I bought from a local shop. It did pretty good, except it ended up turning hermy. I guess that’s fairly common when you find a stray seed in your smoke. I’ve done a bit of research, so I have the basics down, but always looking for tips to increase yield or potency. I’ve been lurking around here for the last week or so, and I see there are some quite knowledgeable folks here, so I look forward to picking your brains.

Anyhow, this is a picture of my new baby at 18 days old.

She is 9 inches tall, and 14 inches wide. Very healthy looking. You can tell she’s got good genetics.:heart_eyes:
If I was a male cannabis plant, I would be wanting to pollinate that.


Welcome to the forum @art! Glad to have you and your plant looks really nice!


Thank you.


@art welcome to the forum looks great so I see soil what kind you got ? As for pot size I would recommend a minimum of 5 gallons for good Yelds Ilgm Genetics are potent so you came to the right place for that to a lot of us that are medium growers (soil) like using the fabric part they dry out faster and they allow the roots to breathe if I can be of any assistance please let me know in order to contact someone use the @ symbol in front of there name like @art @Hogmaster I will tag a few more people that are very knowledgeable as well if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask there are a lot of members on our forum that are very knowledgeable as well and great help we’re all about peace love and green thumbs @garrigan62 @Countryboyjvd1971 @MattyBear

You might want to top that sweet baby when it hits 10 inches. Just the one little growth tip. You can find tutorials on topping and fimming here on this site. This will let the side branches grow out and greatly improve your yields. (I know it hurts, but you’ll get over it. :smiley:)

It’s hard to tell from my pic, but my planter is actually bigger than 5 gallons.

Welcome to the forum @art. Great bunch of people here. Your girl looks great. I’m fairly new as well almost four grows completed. Wouldn’t be where I am today grow wise without these wonderful people. Happy growing!

Great start, looks pretty healthy. I might try this next grow.

Welcome to the forum. I harvested a NL from ILGM about 2 months ago and it is great smoke. Really smooth and relaxing. She looks great.
