Hello and good morning to all I’m Tim. I finally became a memeber lurking through the blog for about a year or so and finally started my first grow , I have made a lot of mistakes and have learned a lot from just searching through and reading and have been able to fix a lot of my mistakes . NOW to the grow I’m using Home Depots Black Magic line I was original going to start with Kind soil but I was in Home Depot with the wife and she saw it we had a quick discussion and decided why not the soil says it has some goodies I did a slurry test and came out Ph of 6 (cheap tester) .

2 HEADBAND STARTED WITH 7 (MADE TO MANY MISTAKES and where sick with unknown illness when they where given to me.
1 APPLE KUSH
The 2 head band on the left I have had for 4 wks I started with 7 and am convinced I killed them from over watering, incorrect Ph, water to cold (shock),fluctuating temps night temps to
Topped 2 g18 1 Headband and the rest left to grow Naturally to see results. THE GC HOOD and ballast has a dimmer but is now on 315 , I also used to run the lights 18-6 now 24hrs keeps the temps up now temps are steady 70 to 83 . I Feed every 2 days Ph 6.0 to 6.3 water with 24oz in a split, morning and evening .Last watering I gave them superthrive and won’t for the rest of this run since i will switch 12-12 soon and read to give it to them during flower , I was also using the foliage spray not anymore. I just raised the light back to 18" since they have grown and did a lot of trimming which i hope I did correctly I trimmed majority of the bottom leaves the i couldn’t see from the top when looking down directly over the top so now they are all trimmed. I’m going to try and keep updates for those curious about the line and appreciate all feed back .
