howdy partners appreciate anyone stopping by and reading, this is something like thread number 10,672 in this here New Growers forum so thanks for clickin' on mine. for a little more about me and my reasons for starting my own garden, here's my introduction; https://www.autoflower.net/forums/threads/time-for-change.66427/ i debated starting a journal for several reasons, but in the end i've decided it will be beneficial for both me and the girls, and perhaps it might even help others, just as so many journals here, old and new, have helped me to have a bloody good go at this myself. i'd be here all day shouting out individual growers that i've borderline stalked over the past 6 months or more, so i'll just say thank you to everyone who's detailed their grows past or present; it's been truly inspirational to this passionate smoker. enough rambling! here's what i'm up to; Lights - 4 x 55w Citizen 3500K CLU048 Extraction - 6" Presh Hyper Fan and Rhino Pro carbon filter - not yet installed Fan - Secret Jardin Monkey Fan 15w Medium - Plagron Lightmix Soil Nutrients - AN Bloom A&B, Voodoo Juice, Carboload, Overdrive and Density CalMag Pro. Will look in to some kind of "finisher" once that becomes a nice problem to consider. 12L Air Pruning Pots Grow Space - 120cm x 50cm x 180cm Strain line up: Creme De La Chem Sour Livers Double Grape very excited to finally try some Mephisto genetics after reading countless reviews of their stuff. One of each seed was germinated just over a week ago and a couple of days later the Double Grape was first out of the gates. The next day, the Sour Livers popped up, and lastly the CDLC. Double Grape at day 5 - she's stretchy. cobs made out to be so powerful i ran them too high up and on maybe 30% strength for fear of damaging the fragile seedlings. I have since lowered to 40 cm above the pots, and up to 60% strength. stretching stopped, but leaf development not quite as rapid as I hoped, and whilst my pictures are indeed pants, you should note the paler yellow of the new growth. i noted it! no idea why it's happening at such a young age though? Sour Livers Day 4 - let her stretch a bit too and she exhibits the brighter growth more than the others. CDLC Day 3 - slower seed to pop, slightly steadier pushing through the soil. lights were lowered before she managed to give us a wave, so she's not stretchy. less yellow than the others too. any comments, criticism, bad jokes etc are very welcome. i haven't grown anything other than my hair so i'm genuinely surprised i had three seeds and i now have three seedlings.
