Worse than any beginner

ok so far everything that can go wrong has. after a month of reading everything I can get my hands on including all the great post from everyone I ordered seeds and tried to pay with a credit card. oops. blocked. started insulating the room I am going to use with white foam board and found out the room is so big I would be better off with a grow tent. THEN my tenants started acting up and one moved out after they broke or ruined everything in the apt. they left their 2 cats and it took a week to get animal control to remove them. then it took 13 days to clean and repair everything. then the police are calling me that 30 people are in the street and my building is full and someone is going to jail. then 3 people didn’t pay me so I had no money to order a dang thing. well I found a few seeds and decided to experiment with them. I used 2 cups distilled water and 2 teaspoons of peroxide and just put them in the room because its dark and humid. temps dropped last night and the water was cold when I touched the jar this morning so I took them and put them on a paper towel with the water from the jar and covered them loose with a piece of saran wrap. they are in a dark room. put them on a table since its a dirt floor and the cold came from the ground. ordered my seeds jack h today and fox farms light warrior and a seedling mat. going to see if anything happens from the orphan seeds and my husband is going to build me a light with the quantum boards and keep me from jumping the gun when its for real because patience is a big problem with me. i am writing down everything I do and the times so I can go back and see where I screwed up .thanks for reading.

Life is a fickle B. Don’t give up. I promise the first time you smoke your own grown free weed you’ll be A-Ok. Good luck.

Ditto to wat Ran said. Its like… a box of chocolates? Everyday is more hurdles. Just keep jumping til u can hand off that baton n rest a bit.

Good news on the new lights.

If ur not legal and dealing with the popo then thats another blessing in disguise. Its easier to toss plants then hide them.

And on cue… LoCo’s late again :joy::joy:

Grrr u…

Wow! My first grow flamed out early! Crashed and burned. The smoke wasn’t bad and had my mouth watering for this grow! Thoughts were if the early worked how great will the full term be! So i went into the wallet again for upgrades and a lot of things i didn’t have on the first grow! Already i am further along with this grow working on week 5 in flower! Banged them with two flush and then the 3 nutri from the 4th week schedule FF

My first was all of 28 grams. Everyone knows my story by now. Grew in a fish tank. With 6w cfls (4-6 of them) n fish emulsion. Fast forward 2 months and i have more leaves in veg then buds i harvested that go round. Just read, research, soak it up, make ur mistakes, and improve. Nowhere to go but up right?

Its not overnight. But also isnt rocket science. Heck some plants grow IN SPITE of us

If i can do it anyone can! I think i can i think i can! The problem with me replacing most everything was i didn’t find this forum until after i brought the junk! More space and room needed i will get some use out of it. Seedlings clones ect before moving them into the serious grow space for veg and flower :slight_smile::100:

I’ve had plenty of frustrations during grows. Some of them made me want to quit and never try again.

Everyone makes mistakes. Most of us make plenty. Just keep at it and learn from the “off” grows.

ohio. not friendly at all. in my head I am going to grow the best super weed. I answered a craigslist add that was advertising used grow tent and equip. this town is so little I think they might have known me and never answered back. of course I wanted it to grow tomtoes. I want to thank everybody for the vote of confidence. I have to go check if my orphan seeds sprouted since I checked them 15 minutes ago.
