Hello AFN. :toke: So I think it's time I learn to grow my own :growing:


With the state the world is in, my quickly diminishing cannabis, my lack of $ and excess of time, I don't think there will ever be a better time to start :smokeit:
Luckily I have been blessed with a box full of seeds and the basic equipment for the most part.

I'll be growing in a 36 x 20 x 62 tent and maybe outside if I run out of room in there or my light gives up on me. It doesn't look so good, some of the little lights look black but they glow when its turned on so :shrug:going to do the best I can with it. It is a Mars Hydro 300-60.
There is a fan that is mounted on a plastic plate that sits over the hole in the top of the tent exhausting air.
I have a temp/humidity gauge, the two meters (one of them looks really nice).
I have the following nutrients:
Conex (gel and starting solution)
Superthrive
Lots of calimagic
Fox farm grow and bloom
Fox farm beastie blooms
2 little packs of recharge
Ph up and down
Ph 4.0 and 7.0
Electronic storage solution

I have a crap ton of 1l pots and am going to start in them and see what happens.

For medium I'm going to have to try and use cheap walmart coco. My ex bf bought a crap ton that walmart sat out in the rain over the winter. I have a couple slightly swollen bales here still. I do have a little bit of perlite to add to it.

As far as genetics go the ones I remember liking the most were all photo.
The only auto seeds I have are homemade ones that aren't feminized. I have the following.
White Grape f1
White Grape f2
White Grape f2 x Samsquanch OG
White Grape f2 x Strawberry Nuggets
White Grape f2 x SODK
White Grape f2 x Forum Stomper

White Grape is (White Dwarf x Double Grape) x Double Grape

I am leaning towards the forum stomper cross even though I only have a couple of those.

The tent is set up ready to go. Currently working on getting my coco right. Threw a block in a tub with about 5 gallons of water and am going to wash it and start buffering it this eve after I do a little more reading about how.

I guess that's it for now. Hope you all have a great day! :biggrin: Stay safe out there

Welcome to afn.always lots to learn.so ur in the right place.best of luck and happy growing;)
:thanks:
Sounds like you are more than ready to go! Put your seeds to germinate now while you're buffering your coco. You'll cut out a couple days wait and will really be able to hit the ground running!
Just started them :biggrin: I've been straining coco all morning :coffee2: Didnt really expect so much work before I could start to start. I think I have a pretty firm grasp on making my buffer solution. I have my ph pen tested and ready. Is there a way to test my ppm meter and make sure its accurate?
Now i know why a bag of dirt costs so much and why I had such a huge bottle of calmag.
Welcome:welcome:  Hppy growing
:thanks:

Coco can be annoying but once you set it up, it's good to go forever! The benefits outweigh the cons and as a former dirty girl, I'll never go back!:crying: To my knowledge ppm meters don't need to be calibrated. They measure using a type current so will always give an accurate reading a bit like an electric ruler would. But I'm not too sure. Mine has never failed me but I really don't pay attention to it much. I always start at a low feed and increase little by little as I go up. I'm really not into micromanaging a grow! It's bad enough i have to measure potions with little syringe things!:baked:
