I am getting more supplies today I am transplanting from these little pots to the 5 gallon fabric and need to get nutes today also


Is there a question here? Seeking critique?

I tell you what i see:

  1. You started out by posting a well filled out support ticket. Thats awesome! The guys on here will be able to help you out with issues better because of that.

  2. Your using happy frog. Also excellent. This means you wont need any nuted for first several weeks(4 or so. But this varies)

  3. Fabric pots are also a excellent choice. 5 gal size should be good. These will help keep you from using too much water. In my experience i can get a little bigger plant to grow in fabric vs clay pots.

  4. Environment looks good for this stage of grow. As the grow progresses your gonna want to start creeping that humidity down some. Google a vpd chart for cannabis.

  5. PH could come up a bit, i like 6.5 to 6.8.

  6. Looks like a decent light. Im a LED guy so ill keep most of my thiughts to myself just because its not something im up to speed on. I will say its not going to be enough to flower out 7 healthy plants efficiently. My guess would be 4 tops but like i said i havent used that light so maybe @dbrn32 can contribute here.

6… get a tds meter and learn how to use it. It will come in handy. Maybe not on first grow just because of info overload but a skill that a good grower should have.

That ac is for the whole garage yes???

Those are my thoughts. Overall looks like your off to a good start. Better than most.

Beginner advice:

Water is your best freind and worst enemy. Too much is bad and not enough is bad, however too much is worse than not enough. (Wow that was a real stoner way to word that huh?).

Patience, patience, patience. You will make mistakes. Dont let them get you down, the best growers on here foul up plants all the time. Whenbyou make a mistake come here and tell everybody exactly what you have done and they will help you out and quick. We are on this thing around the clock!

Last but not least, remember god gave us weed so we could heal ourselves mentally and physically. Every time a mistake gets you down, burn one and smile about it. This is the most fun you can have growing anything… except maybe children but they are the reason most of us started smokin in the first place. Lol

Damn, sorry for such a long post… im so high rite now…:woozy_face:

Lmao you’re good man it’s my first time inside I’ve done some TREES outdoors but that was about 5 years ago and yes the ac is for whole garage I want the are that my tent is in to get to a stable temp so I can fluctuate it with the heat inside the tent but I really appreciate everything guys I’m in the middle of transplanting them but here’s what I have so far as of now


Yes cmh and the tent is 3x3x6

Also I started training them today also is it bad to start training as soon as I transplant to bigger pots?


You’re fine to start training about that size.

I just transplanted about an hour ago so I have 5 that are put in 5 gallon felt pots by black magic and 2 aren’t ready to transplant just yet


Nice light for 3x3. Although next time I would say with 4 or more plants you don’t need pots that big. 3 gallon fabric plenty big, could probably even go a little smaller.

I’m no expert expert, BY FAR, I’m a beginner, and I’m learning on the job, but I will say this, don’t give your babies any nutes, JUST YET. Just water them with a balanced ph’d tap water (get a ppm meter asap), and keep a very close eye on them until they’re dialed in. Until you feel confident enough, and comfortable with your setup, you will have to even TALK to them, then you can relax…good luck, and they’re absolutely BEAUTIFUL btw


…from my experience and understanding, you can start training them

Where should I top this one? I just did the very top should I top it more or just the very top?


Should I top after every 4th node?

I chronicled the 2nd topping. Maybe it will help
Northern Lights Second Topping Illustrated - #20 by LSGrow.
I can’t really tell where the 4th node is. Above the 4th is good.

You can top wherever you like, then train the branches that come off the sides. You will learn what works in you tent by trail and error, everybody does!
One thing you may want to do is reduce the plant count? Maybe 4 max! But hey giver your best shot. This will come with time. Some guys could sea of green that tent wit 10 plants and fill er full of bud! But for the beginner I would suggest a few nice plants and a scrog net once you get some side branches going on there. Have fun! Cant wait to see how it goes for you!

How are these looking so far team? This is my first time indoors so go ahead and critique all you want lol. We’re all stoners here anyways so it’s all for fun

is it me or does this color look bad?
And last but not least my little baby Gelato Cookie😎


Here’s a closer pic of the color


I think your ok. Stems will lighten as they get thicker.

Ok cool thanks man. I’ve had a couple plants outside do that and the buds were huge but once they dried it was all air🤣

If it dont clear up tho, get back on here and let us know. There are deficiencies that can cause putple stems.
