Starting a new grow and have decided to do my first official grow journal.
I’m growing Bubblegum and Gold Leaf using super soil. The recipe is courtesy of @garrigan62. I made the soil at the end of November and cooked it next to my wood stove for three months.
My base soil is reused from my last grow. I do like the fact that by using super soil I can reuse my soil over and over again. The only soil I need to buy is what I use to make super soil. Nothing fancy just a good organic blend. I made sure to test for PPM at the end of my last grow and it was around 300 ppm. A little bit of nutrients to give my new ladies good start.
I’m using 10 gallon fabric pots. I filled two about half full of super soil.
Then I top the pots up with my reused soil.
I also use an earthbox and set it up the same. The earthbox is for my tomato plants this time around. I plan on growing two autoflowers in the earthbox this fall.
I use a bestva 1200 watt reflector series blurple light for veg and add a second one for flower.
My tent is a cheap 4x4. I have a small 4 inch fan to pull in fresh fair at the bottom and the top vent pulled up so the heat can escape. That helps keep the humidity up for veg. Right now my humidity sits at 62%. Temp is mid 70’s lights on and mid 60’s lights off.
Here are my ladies as of this morning.
Gold leaf first. She is almost two weeks old. I start my seeds with the wet paper towel then normally put them in their forever home. I tried putting the start in a four inch pot in a humidity dome. I won’t do that again for indoor plant again. I feel it slowed down the growth. Since put in the new pot she is starting to take off.
Bubblegum next. I tried to start a couple of Sour D seeds with no success. I decided to grow Bubblegum because it’s my wife’s favorite and smells wonderful. Here she is at two days old.
Also in the tent are tomatos. Amish Paste and Cherry.
Romaine lettuce and beet greens.
And a mix a leaf lettuce, beet greens and radishes
