Fresh start from scratch low cash

I have these seeds from ILGM
Fem seeds
Strawberry cough
Blueberry
Blackberry

CBD
Kush
White widow
Crit Mass

Straw cough is a fav and blueberry also as migraine relief, in a vape form. I’m trying to learn to grow my own.
Tried 1 each seed-
I keep the seeds in fridge, used metal shot glass and bottled purified water stored in dark place for 3 days.
2 had small crack and a small root peaking out but no tails.
Support said plant anyway so I planted barely under soil in solo cup with black/gold seedling mix on top 1/2 and living soil in bottom 1/2. Wet and drained soil then planted-covered with ziplock with most and holes poked in baggies, placed under 2crappy lights 12inches from cup.
None sprouted.
1 looked like empty shell split open but no growth after 1 week🤨

I will fill out all questions tonight, I’m going now to pickup new to me grow light and new 5x5 tent for fall/winter grow.
For this 1st grow I wanted to do outdoor before Fall.
New to me light will be HLG 600 Rspec

Got it!!:smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I bought it from a grow business that closed, also got a never opened 5x5 grow tent:)
Now I just have to learn how to use the light for each stage and how far away from plants.

I posted the seed packs I purchased from ILGM Berry and CBD. I would like to grow 2 or 3 for first grow, one being Strawberry cough and a CBD plant.
What do you recommend I grow as a first time outdoor, happy frog soil grow in Oklahoma with the time I have left this growing season??

Start with 3-4 seeds.
Outdoor growing, Where? Legal? Neighbors?
Learning your outdoor grow is a process.
Some good, some not.
Good growing to you.
awesome deal on light and tent, Congrats.

Today I started soaking 1 each of the berry mix and CBD mix posted earlier. I used filtered water in a shot glass in dark desk drawer.
Tomorrow I will prep clear cup inside red solo cups with seedling mix top 1/2 and bottom 1/2 living soil. I will wet soil till it drains and set aside for seeds.

I hope to get past seedling stage and move to garden area outside.
Oklahoma, outdoor, yes it’s legal for med patients.

If you like the outdoors stuff like fishing, hunting, lakes and camping it’s awesome! Constitution is strong here, and we have med cards for legal grows but I think it will be recreational soon. Great place to have a family. Most people here are decent. I’ve been here for 15+yrs.
Where r u now?

I used it on my bamboo for spider mites… it worked ok. Switched to isopropyl wipes and it worked better. Don’t know if that would help with Japanese bettles though.

If this works for your veggies, dont change a thing for cannabis. There’s no special cannabis specific pest control product.

DE and Neem oil tend to do the trick for me as well. The only pests I struggle with outdoors are Grasshoppers and Squirrels. I dont live in a spot where I can shoot the Squirrels and refuse to poison them. As far as Grasshoppers are concerned you have plenty of options ranging from benificial insects to Grasshopper specific insecticide. I opted for a literal carton of wasps. The wasps have a done a great job, but I understand many people’s concerns as to why it wouldn’t work for them.

I also have managed to draw in tons of birds and bats to my yard. What im getting at is if you want to get all ecology dork on it, creating the greatest amount of biodiversity as you possibly can while optimising your space will help with pest control, yield and quality for anything herbacious.

But yeah, Jacks is a fine product if you just dont want the hastle.

Your garden looks great by the way. You’ll do fine if your bud is cared for the same as what youre psotikg pictures of.

Welcome aboard. Tagging in a neighbor of yours.
Hey @Roadsideorganics.ok have another outdoor new Okie grower for you. Dont get offended Dd. Panhandle Texas here indoor. The tagged person was.commercial in that dry assed area you live in. We are the same here but I am indoor… He is also organic and that is a cheap way to grow great cannabis. His advice for your area is gold.
Those lights are fine to start your girls but will not grow a plant indoors worth a damn.
