So the time has finally arrived after months of extensive research, different ideas and dreams of green, I have begun my first grow thanks to ILGM’s White Widow and Gorilla Glue.
I want to lay this out in a format to help other newbies and to be instructional (weather to learn mu mistakes or successes) and get the best advice based on my own equipment… lets make this fun!
I did my research on strains to find a beginner friendly (and hardy) plant to begin with.
White Widow seems to be known for its resistance and ability to handle more extreme environmental changes.
Gorilla glue also seemed to be know as an easy grow and has a similar cycle length (based on the internet) to White Widow, heard lots of good from it.
I am using the following…
-Gorilla Grow Tent 4x4x? (No extender sadly no room)
-Phresh Exhaust 6Inch Multiple Speed (So good and quiet)
-Vipraspectra “full sprectrum” 2000W with Dimmer (Wanted Mars but Aus stock is limited)
-Coco/Perlite 70/30 Pre Buffered (THC Australia Brand)
-Nutrients, Cmag,CocoA+B, Nitrogen with Humic,Silica,B52,Roid,Eskit (All THC Australia)
-C02 Supplements (Exhale Bag and a shake able canister, feel like not needed)
I begun sprouting in a 5.8 PH Adjusted Water with Rockwool soaked for 15 minutes in it.
I just carefully dropped the seed in the and slowly scrapping over the fibers to block out light, let sit in a humidity dome under my baby CFL 100W (they claim) until I got some action (I know i can do it straight into Coco and in damp towel, but practicing for my DWC buckets I built).
Between all you tagged please join me for the journey between the expert knowledge and the othe aussies local who understand the environmental battle that is winter all the help is appreciated. Please tag anyone who may have expertise in the coco field as well
Will start posting my week one (sorry for the long post!!!).
