Hi everyone, I have been transfixed as of late with growing my own cannabis, and after reading lots on the internet, I decided to create this tread with some questions I have before starting my very first grow. I will try to give as much info on what I plan to do,and hopefully some of the experienced growers on here can answer some of my questions. Since I live very close to Dutch Passion's headquarters, and I read very good stuff about their seeds, I am thinking of getting auto durban poison and some auto blackberry kush or maybe auto frisian dew, since I don't have any experience growning. I will germinate in paper towels and then plant them in small pots on the windowsill until the nights are warmer and they outgrow their pot. What kind of soil do you use in the early stages, as I read too many nutrients early on can burn the seedlings? Since I live at 50N in Europe, I want to grow my autoflower plants in large pots outdoors in my garden, because we frequently get a lot of rain in April/May and August/september. My reasoning to plant in pots being I can take the pots inside or shelter them when it rains too much. I was thinking of using 35 liter pots or grow bags for this, so the roots can grow. Is this OK? Also, I think growing in pots/grow bags will be better for me, as I want to grow the plants in good soil as natural as possible without adding too many extra nutrients. I have grown up on smoking coffeeshop weed all my life, which is mostly overpowered and grown to yield as much as possible in as little time as possible. This is not at all what I am after. Any suggestions on soil types like bio canna bio terra plus or something else which already has natural nutrients and I can add some things like blood meal, bat guano, etc.. to? Does adding all these growing and blooming additives I keep reading about, make the weed more potent, but also less "healthy"? As in cows being fed on industrial pellets instead of grazing and natural stuff? I am after good quality, not quantity. Regarding placement, I am thinking of placing 2 pots in my garden where they would receive sunlight almost from the early morning al through to sundown. The problem is that they are a little in the sight of my neighbours, which I want to avoid, but ultimately don't think would be a problem. We can legally grow one plant here. Maybe I shall put a couple of tomato plants around them as a cover... I am also thinking of putting 2 plants on my roof, where the would receive direct sunlight from noon until sundown, but are against a brick wall which retains heat well. Added bonus is they are more out of sight and potentially not funerable to insects etc... But their smell when blooming will be more noticable. So much questions! Thank you to anyone who takes the time out to enlighten me a little.
