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...
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...
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...

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...

Day 22, 9/30/2021: Things... got a little out of hand tonight hahaha. Seed 2 has gotten supertopped, not supercropped. (I'm so sorry, my girl.) Aside from that, the plant clips look like they'll work if we really keep on top of them--the rate the ladies are growing, the clips will either stunt...

Day 15, 9/23/2021: Both Seed 1 and Seed 2 were working on pushing out their fourth sets of leaves, so the growing tips were pinched off to break up the apical dominance and promote branching. (Pics were taken before clipping.) Seed 2 shows small signs of worsening damage (more of that...

Hi guys, Nothing special but it feels safe to stay within acceptable limits in terms of temperature and humidity. Getting rid of the summer heat is a great pleasure :biggrin: I noticed the pistils for the first time today. It's obvious that it will take longer to reach the finish line. For the...

Day 8, 9/16/21: Autopot valve from the system reservoir was found to have been left tightly closed this whole time. (I'm gonna do that part of the setup next time.) Dirt was dry and fluffy to the touch, but no wilting was observed. I started off with a fear of overwatering because most of my...

Greetings from the end of the second week:toke: I'm skipping it today as it doesn't need water, but tomorrow I'll fill the res and check if it's rooted enough at the bottom. Maybe I'll start feeding lightly as well. Cheers*

Chaps, This is my third grow. I learned a lot but still struggle to get the feel of watering. So I gotta master that first. However, I am now much less paranoid about the soil, so I dropped the light mix. Tent 80x80x160cm BestVA 600w reflector 2x 15w fans dehumidifier Biobiz Allmix + 10g of...

Greetings again from an unstable weather forecasts of september festival* The humidity was low from the beginning. They speak optimistically for next days but keeping my fingers crossed, because I use a mini humidifier and it is not like those that turn a grow tent into a sauna while operating...

Hey all! As the title suggests, I'm new to all things growing. Mid Atlantic region of the US, which means long hot humid summers. This post is going to be pretty picture heavy (though maybe not idk) since I'm dumping about 2 months worth so just fair warning on that. My first four beans (Purple...
