Though i would try a grow journal out since I’m pretty excited for this new style I’m trying and I’m the only one in my friend group thats into this stuff so i don’t have anyone to nerd out with on my growing hobby.
My first grow i was coco with Dr, Earth dry amendments in 5g fabric pots, and it was kinda a struggle the whole way but i did learn a lot still. But i came across BuildASoil youtube channel and was instantly hooked on there organic growing style, but my biggest problem was watering due to my wicket adhd and impulse control. I couldn’t find a happy medium between really dry and overwatering so that’s why i went with the Earthbox.
About this grow.
2x4 tent in a active part of my home.(scared of light leaks so i went autos)
4" ac infinity exhaust fan
Spiderfarmer SF-2000 led
2 6" clip on fans, 1 above the light for cooling, 1 under canopy
Dehumidifier outside of tent, humidifier inside tent. I probly wont need the dehumidifier this grow
Earthbox filled with buildasoil 3.0.
Amendments=Craftblend amendments, BuildaFlower topdress, Kashi fermented grain.
I planted the GirScoutCookies on November 11 so ill have to catch up a few days for yall.
The Supplies for the grow
I put a layer of soil then added a bit of craftblend and kashi. (idk if that was a good or bad thing yet)
Then filled it the rest of the way up planted my seeds and watered around them and put clear cups on them for extra humidity. It averages around 45% here in Missouri during the winter.
11/15 I got the first lady poking though. At this point ive only watered around the seeds.
11/17 Both of the lady’s have sprouted, and I’ve also started keeping the top of the soil watered a bit so the rest of the soil to i guess prep the soil for when i start filling the Earthbox with water. (also an appearance of Ms. Pickles sneaking into the tent to soak up the heater wail I grabbed my phone lol)
11/22 After hooking up the humidifier and keeping the tent around 65% humidity/75F for the seedling stage, and maybe keeping the top of the soil to damp, I started to get green algae/moss next to my plants. So i let it dry down a bit and just slightly mixed it into the top of the soil so light didn’t get to it. I don’t know if it was bad or good green stuff.
11/29 Both of the ladys have started growing alot, but still need them to get a bit taller before i put the plastic mulch layer on that came with the Earthbox. Been just keeping the top of the soil damp when ever it started drying out. And started putting a small about of water into the bottom.
12/1 Is the day that i put the cover on the soil, and filled the Earthbox with water for the first time.
I also put a bit of craftblend and kashi on the soil so it could start breaking down by the time the plants are bigger. I was always behind on my topdresses on my last grow so i might over do it on this grow. The second pic is from the day after when i checked under the cover and found all sorts of neat stuff growing lol
And now i think we are caught up on this grow, Im a pretty nice guy and loves talking shop about this new hobby so if there are any questions or suggestions im totally down for it, and ill keep this updated though out the grow!
