Question about starting a grow Journal


I would like to start a grow Journal. Are there any guidelines I should follow? Hints? Helps?

Is it kool to just create a topic under grow Journals and run with it?

Thanks for the input.


I’m going to start one soon. I plan on giving as many details about my grow as possible. Soil, tent, lights, nutrients, strain growing and so on. The devil is in the details and will help others guide you in the right direction if you need help.


That is exactly what you do, @kw_Bat. Take a look at the forum rules and guidelines (esp. profanity and outside links).

Some folks start a new journal for each grow, others (like me), have a single journal that is maintained for multiple grows over time. here is a link to my journal: Merlin's Grow Log

Start your journal early and post details and photos. That way, when you need help folks will have an easier time figuring out what you need.

Good luck with your grow, we are all here to follow along and help as needed. Sometimes we help when you don’t need it. LOL


@merlin44 I will do just that, I will go over the rules. Thanks for the link to your grow log, I will def check it out! Thanks for the input, I didn’t know where to start! thanks for the tips!~

@shindig153 Hey I am with you, as soon as these things pop so I can get a photo of it, I will get it kicked off. Thanks!
