Followed the Mephisto guide for germinating the seeds - four folds of toilet paper, dampened and enclosed in a DVD case - keep warm. Checked after 24 hours and could see the Double Grape and CDLC showing progress. The Auto Amnesia wasn't showing any signs of progress. Flipped and returned...
I planted the seeds one week ago today. This is my first time using HPS and I started with the light too far away so the seedlings got a bit spindly. When I moved it closer, a couple of the seedlings fell over and three didn't. I raised the light just a little bit, but this is good because it...

Hi AFN! Here, summer continues its effect, albeit with a delay. I hope the days will come when we will realize that global warming is not a joke. I couldn't help saying it because it had been on my mind for a long time. As for the plant, I think she needs a flush now. Although I managed to...

Day 36, 10/14/2021: Filled another 4 gallons of water with cal-mag added. Increased cal-mag to 16 ml per 4 gallons (4 ml per gallon) because new growth still shows slight discoloration between the veins. Worked out a good system for measuring and transporting water using a garden cart, my...
I put the seeds in two-gallon pots two days ago and they all made their appearance today.

All five seeds sprouted. I guess whether they float or not is irrelevant. I put them in 2 gallon pots in Happy Frog media in an auxiliary location under a 1000 watt HPS just because that's what I have. In a couple of days I'll receive an Optic LED Optic 2 GEN4 200W Dimmable COB LED Grow Light...

It seems that the blog doesn't become visible until you post the first entry. So I'm reposting the front page here. Apologies if I'm wrong and you already saw it in your feed. I soaked a 3-pack overnight (that's actually 5 seeds) of Double Grape yesterday. My intention is to choose one to...
Now moving on to week 10 - still drinking lots of water. Water 5L each, every 3 days, giving them a good wet / dry cycle. I think one more week of nutes then will move on to just water until those trichs start to change. I didnt think Sweet zz would out do the banana blaze at the beginning...
Day 29, 10/7/2021: Busy night tonight! Started off by checking the reservoir and seeing it needed to be refilled in a hurry. I added 4 gallons of water and dosed it with cal-mag and FoxFarm Tiger Bloom, both at half-strength. Like a dummy, I didn't check the analysis on them until after I was...

First entry for this grow! I've got my four seeds popped into red cups, each buried to the same depth. Soil was well watered before, a few drops on top of the seed and now sitting in a nice light (but not direct), warm place. Let's see if these girls make a showing soon!
Only posting this evening to say that I discovered that my light was not set at 50%...more like 30%. I must have bumped the knob inadvertently at some point. I correct that and will post pictures tomorrow to see if upping the light level has made an appreciable difference.

Again, not much change, but you can definitely tell that the girls are growing. Temperature has held steady at 73F with light remaining on 24/0. Planning to get them into the DWC reservoir this weekend so they can get their veg on.

Not a whole lot going on, but the girls are standing up tall and have a baby pairs of leaves. The temperature in my tent is a steady 73F without any ventilation turned on and the light has been running 24/0. I continue to give them a little squirt of the seedling nutrient solution each morning...

Hi guys! I couldn't take care of the plant for a while and I had to give up my weekly update habit. Sadly, too much work to do. Since I do not know much about the problems that plants can experience and I did not have much trouble in the previous ones (somewhat by chance), I am seriously...
Looks like Frieda, the 11 week old in the larger model (Farm 12XL) has not only caught up but surpassed her older sister Sadie. Her leaves started falling off sooner and she has more amber pistils. I have a loupe on order as what I bought (looks like a little microscope) is just too hard to...

Quick post to detail the germination process of my first grow... I used the paper towel method with untreated tap water with two ILGM Grandaddy Purple Auto seeds. I placed them between two damp paper towels and packed them in a small Tupperware container and set them inside my tent with the...

I thought I’d give this blog (journal?) a try, so please bear with me as I try and navigate this system. Hopefully I’m on the right path to starting a Grow Journal. Ok so a little about me . I medically retired in 2016 after a severe spinal injury, whether that’s a permanent ”retirement” or not...

First and foremost, I want to say hi! I've always wanted to grow cannabis but have never lived in a state where it was legal to do so. Now that Virginia has legalized recreational marijuana use, I'm happy to be able give it a go. This blog will detail my first grow, two ILGM Granddaddy Purple...
