Hey all, first grow

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

You got this champ. You got enough room just to space'em. Make your tent accessible from all angles if possible. My first couple of grows I flushed my tent against a wall and found myself struggling to access my jungle lol. Anyways mate your shits up to Par and its smooth sailing for you.

Shit I even grew some tomatoes this year. I haven't ever been inclined to plant a thing in my life. Hope you learn as much as I did from everyone here

Much respect for this forum and it’s members:d5:

Anyway i low stressed again some more today but no securing down yet, if I even decide to... bending and tucking each day working fine so far.
Was reading about these Exhale Co2 bags to increase carbon dioxide in the tent, sounds good but is it snake oil, anyone use these personally? I like the idea, especially with the hot weather I’ve been getting recently but not willing to pay out for something unnecessary or useless lol

The pots on most are still a little damp and not as light as I remember last time so gonna leave watering till tomorrow morning at the least or maybe tomorrow night, l’ll finger check and weight check again in the morning to be sure, here’s some pics after training them some, they look horrible after training:rofl:

Never used them but to efficiently boost the co2 to a level that the plants would benefit from significantly would require a proper co2 system. Heard they are a sham but hey you could throw one in there and see how it works for you. And as for the part about us, you grew those beasts and we had nothing to do with it. You sir are going to enjoy a feast when this is done, you give and you get. The girls like what you're giving apparently!

I have been reading into these to, have read you can easily make your own with yeast but haven't read enough to know for sure. If they do work you would have to vent outside and make sure your ventilation went onto a timer

After reading and watching more on the bags and the budget airbombz Co2 dispenser, I agree with you both. I would need a proper system and controller to be of any efficiency as the ventilation system will just suck out the poor amount these budget options produce and that’s not even mentioning the tent size I would need to fill... that idea is out the window lol
The way I have my ventilation setup wouldn’t be good for me either I assume with it being in my bedroom and venting into the hallway of my house, my lungs are screwed up enough :rofl:
So no Co2 for me then, just need to pay more attention to temps but hopefully that’s the heat wave done...
Next grows will be done in the nice cold basement and should be much easier to control temps :biggrin:

Day 26

These girls just keep amazing me every day with the size they gain
:jawdrop:
Watered all but the two smallest today they seem to be drinking slower, makes sense.

They got watered until I seen run off with:

1ml root juice per litre (tapering off usage)
1.5ml fish mix
1.5ml heaven
0.5ml Alg-a-mic
1 tablespoon Epsom salt per gallon
1 teaspoon calcium carbonate per gallon
0.2ml biobizz ph- bringing from 7.2 to 6.5ph

I always empty out the run off afterwards too, just in case anyone was wondering.
Checked lights height and adjusted to 18-20”
Temps better today 81-82f lights on and 78 off and 58% humidity

I will do some more lst soon get those leaves tucked and branches bent to make sure the light is getting to the good bits.
So far happy days:smoking:
Stay tuned troops!
Bill.
