Cosmic Queen and 24 Carat
Hey guys this is my first grow journal on here so a little about grow experience. This is my third grow total and second indoor grow with. My first grow was one Cosmic Queen and one 24 Carat that each yielded about 3 ounces. This grow Ill be growing out the freebies I received from that order that are Beary White x 3 Bears OG which I have heard is sometimes referred to as 4 Bears OG :) I put all 5 seeds in a damp paper towel inside of a glasses case, wrapped up in a hand towel and stuck in the side pocket of my grow tent. 36 hours later all 5 had germinated so the grow begins.

Quick info:
2x4 grow tent
260W Alibaba QB 24hrs on
3 gal fabric pots
Pre amended coco peat product, that I added some extra earth worm castings, perlite and gaia green amendments
4" inline fan with carbon filter
Oscillating tower fan (off for the first few weeks) and 6" clip fan pushing air down from the top

All 5 seeds germinated so I made up 5 pots and got them planted today. Temps are quite cool in the spare room the tent is in so I had to add a small ceramic heater (one for reptiles) to bump up the heat a bit. Temps are ranging from about 78-80F in the day and 73-75F at night with humidity in the 70% range in the tent. I've got it set on a thermostat to turn off at 82F if it ever does rise that high. Took a quick picture that I added below. For people wondering what the small pots in the top right, those are Sundews that I just split and repotted. They'll be coming out and moving to a windowsill once the autos start taking over. They do a great job at catching any gnats etc in the tent and do well under similar conditions as cannabis.

That's it for now, I will try and update this weekly or so. Any questions or comments please post away and I'll be happy to respond, thanks!

5 for 5 cant beat that either . How far you keeping the light from em?
Definitely! I have my light mounted a few inches from the top and its a 5' tent. So they're probably about 3.5 - 4' from the light with the light set to about 50% on the dimmer switch. I have a cheap lux meter and its reading about 8-10k lux on the top of the pots.

Day 7 Update

All 5 are growing and progressing well. Just watering with a light seaweed solution and only watered twice so far. Another 7-10 days and I can start pulling them over.

Day 14

All 5 still growing well about 12" across. Bent them over to start LST in order to keep them a bit shorter and encourage more colas. Once the new shoots start growing out Ill pull them in towards the middle and even everything out. I actually intended on planting them a little offset to give me more room for the main growth point but I forgot when I planted them, oh well. Probably update again in a few days when everything looks more normal again.
