Hello! Really digging what appears to be an active community of growers and enthusiasts. Thought I would share my journey through a maiden grow now that it’s legal to do so. I can keep 5 plants. 1 plant >= 5 inches.
Ultimately I am working toward a perpetual grow of 2 plants with the option to keep a mother.
Already made my first mistake, I probably shouldn’t have started with a 5 plant grow. I believe my thought process was I’d have plenty of plants in the event that I mess something up. But the plan was to learn as much as I could on a first grow and have plenty of crop to ease the financial burden of dispensary costs.
Thanks MrPeat! Ah man your name reminds me of a teacher I had in school!
Here’s some week 2 pictures. I had purchased a terrarium dome and 24W light that looks like a rocket booster!! The babies responded quite well to this light.
Around this time I also measured my water and come to the realization that my pH was up to 7.0-7.2 range. Not awful, but I wanted the pH in the 6 range. I picked up some CalMag and treated 1ml per gallon. The CalMag knocked the pH down to 6.25. Good enough for me. Good enough for the girls.
Worth noting: First appearance of my overachiever, that will later be referred to as “OA”
