Where are you growing? Indoor or Outdoor?
What size containers?
Do you have any products your refuse to use? Just to help others that want to chime in.
FWIW-I am outdoor, and organic. I use primarily dry ferts with additions of Aloe Vera flakes, and coconut water. I top dress, and I use living soil(recipe 420 soil as the foundation). I reuse my soil,and also grow cover crops in the container also. I am 25 gallon rainscience bags, and automated watering. Automated watering was a game changer for me. Inside or out, it helps. But that could be once you get other parts of your op going.
the ideal area for a 5 gallon pot is usually a 2x2 area per plant.
just kinda a general idea of what to expect, a 15 gal might be bit big for that grow space.
i always suggest jacks 321 for nutes, definitely look into it.
great soil choice.
im not a fox farm guy but ive seen nothin but mostly good results with it on this forum.
i use purple cow indicanja soil, great results. feel free to check out my grow if u wanna see some results from it
coco/perlite is a second option when growing indoors
look into all of it, do ur research pick what u think will work best for u and maybe find a mentor to walk u through the grow who uses the same stuff and has some good grows under their belts from it.
depending on climate of the space u are growing in
u may wanna invest in a hygrometer (they are cheap for mini ones u can hang in ur grow space) to monitor temp and humidity in ur grow space.
depending on those numbers, could need other equipment such as dehumidifiers, ac stuff like that.
keep that in mind as far as grow space goes.
well that all the advice i can come up with off the top of my head
good luck growmie!
@scryptic What size are your smaller containers? A 15 in that space may take up a lot of space. Since you are just starting out-go a little smaller. That SSH may stretch and that can be a problem. @Hershy421 I was typing my message when yours came through. Let me shut up
@Hershy421 I will go with 5 gallon containers then and try for 2 plants. I’ll definitely look into Jacks321 thank you. I’ll be buying a Vivosun inline with a built-in hygrometer as well as a PAR meter with RH feature
@Slug_Life thank you for the heads up. So the difference between sativa and indica would be problematic or were you talking in relation to pot size? Should I look at ordering different strains? Super Sour Diesel?
Your grow space reminds me of “the shining”… ill throw a loop in your idea. First grow, wanting simple? 100% organic. Dry amendments. 10 gallon pot enough nutes for 45 days. Using dry amendments you feed every 30 days during veg and every 2 to 3 weeks in flower…
Buying a quality light is like buying a quality car. Some like Ford while others like Chevy. The light you have picked out would be substantial for your space. I personally use HLG. They just came out with a new light that would work for you also.
