First auto grow!

This is my first auto grow indoors. All seeds came from ILGM. Top left- northern lights auto, bottom left- white widow auto.


Forgot to mention, the 2 on the left broke ground on 1-5-18. Top right- northern lights auto, bottom right- white widow auto. They broke ground 1-15-18.

This is the northern lights auto

Looking good @Bshmstr

This is a pic of all 4. Bigger and smaller plants was started 10 days apart. Is everything looking ok, or do I need to do something different? Got a digital thermometer/hygrometer in tent now, will post what humidity is after I collect data for a day or so.

Aren’t those pretty? During this time of the grow time seems to creep.

@Flyr, @Countryboyjvd1971, @bob31. Does this look right? Had to bend it and tie it down. Getting to close to light.

Yep @Bshmstr , A little LST (Low Stress Training) is what it’s called. You will learn these plants are pretty hardy when it comes to tugging, bending and wrapping.
