OK, where it all started….I was hearing about people making their own edibles; I’ve always loved the chocolate bars but most of the edibles have a weird after taste. However, the thought of making my own that way I could get rid of the after taste….oh this could be good. I made my first batch of butter and then cookies and OMG…I was in heaven. I wanted to make another batch and my husband told me if I wanted to continue I was going to have to grow my own. And this is a joke because I can kill almost any plant….but the next dispensary I went into there on the counter was a jar full of seeds….i took it as a sign and bought a package. When my husband seen them he said that I shouldn’t waste my time….I’m retired, and don’t have much to do at all, so why not waste some time…. I took 1 seed and put it on a paper towel and put it in a small tupperware and then put that in a ziplock bag in the back of the cabinet…2 days later I had a tap root!! We had some potting soil, so I put it in solo cup with the potting soil and set it outside…and in 2 days I had a leaf!!! I set it outside to get some sun and it was coming along; probably two weeks old a big wind hit it and it was gone. So I tried again……single seed, exact same process but my husband bought a planter for it so that it couldn’t get turned over. It was coming right along and my husband was getting concerned what people might think and told me if I was really interested in this, maybe we could buy me a tent and the stuff to grow….maybe that would be my thing in retirement.
And so the journey began……we watched video after video and we bought the tent with the ventilation and fans. Got it all set up; transplanted the plant into the good soil in the cloth pot and he granted me with balls….the plant was male. Took a trash bag and away he went. Hubs said heck with it, plant all those seeds and order some good ones….That is when I found this website. I ordered my Lemon Haze Auto seeds and they are on their way. This is the story of the last seeds to which I will wait to see their sex.
The story starts with 5 seeds; 4 from a dispensary and 1 from days gone by. On 8/3 I put each seed on a paper towel in a Tupperware container inside a zip lock. The initial purchase included Foxfarms Ocean Forest soil so once the seeds created their tap root on 8/5, I put them in solo cups with the FFOF. Between 8/7 and 8/8 four out of five plants came through the soil. After seven days of no growth, the fifth seed was investigated and found to have never grown past the tap root.
Now we are growing away; ….i’m such a data guru….this site fits me well!
Here is what I have so far…
Tent: 3x3x72 Gorilla
Light: HLG 300 Rspec
4" Jet Fan w/4" carbon filter
2 6" clip on fans
Temperature and Humidity gauge
Plants are in 5 gallon cloth pots (3 weeks old tomorrow) in Foxfarms Ocean Forest soil
Chemicals I will be using at prob week 5 or 6?
Items I need to purchase:
PH Meter…I think I’m going with the Apera that includes the solutions
Dehumidifier…not a problem at this time but will need one soon
