Hi everyone, I started germination on 1.28.19 so I’m about a month in already. Other journals have helped me out a lot so I thought I’d start one too!
Any and all comments and/or advice is appreciated. Since this is my first, my main goal is not getting a massive yield (although I’ll take that) but to learn as much as I can about the process of getting them to flower. I’m not afraid to make mistakes in order to learn, in fact for some of my plants I’m trying to make them so I can learn recovery or what not to do. Really excited though and thanks for checking this out!
What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed:
Amnesia Haze Auto (4)
Blueberry Auto (3)
Northern Lights Auto (1)
Sour Diesel Fem (3)
Cheese Fem (4)
Seedling - Coco
Veg/Flower - FFOF w/ 25-30% perlite
Seedlings: Peat pots
Autos veg/flower - 3gal fabric bags
Fem - 2gal pails, then 5gal bags
PH of Water, Solution, runoff:
Tap water - 7.8ish
PH Down for getting to 6.3-6.8
(Haven’t had enough runoff yet to test…scared to drown them)
PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution:
Did FF nutes 1/2 power a couple times, but heard I should wait a little longer. Will test ppm then.
Indoor or Outdoor:
Indoor dedicated grow room. 3’ x 7.5’ with 7’ ceiling
1000w HID. MH & HPS bulbs
Temps; Day, Night:
Temp control set to 70. Can get up to 77 w/light on
Humidity; Day, Night:
Humidity control set to 52, usually doesn’t go below 40
Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size:
195cfm intake (only runs when bringing humidity in. Humidifiers are outside room.)
193cfm outtake w/carbon filter
AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,
I rarely talk to them, but they get classical music all day
Experience so far:
They’re alive really not too many issues.
I won’t be using the peat pots again because I don’t know if the roots are breaking out enough and don’t want to try removing the pots now and rip off any roots which have made it through.
Have a little issue which I posted earlier about with my Sour Diesel plants…they droop a lot towards the end of the day and it freaks me out. Still trying to get to the bottom of that, although I’ve been told it’s not too much of a concern. All other plants don’t do it, and because it’s all three of them I assume it’s something with the strain. I had them on an 18 hour day and they’d look back to normal in the morning, and I switched to a 20 hour day and they were still droopy in the morning…so perhaps it’s something with the climate? Not sure. I’ll try an 18 hour day again and see.
Here’s my setup:
