Everything looking good, thinking about ordering ILGM WWA so will be following grow. Happy growing my friend​:+1::ok_hand::metal:


First pH measurement of tap water = 7.5-8

Buffered to 6.5 and watered. Hoping that wasn’t a poor choice, just watered this morning.

Tent closed all day, temp 80F and humidity 38%.


Two more WWAF seeds that I’d germinated almost ten days ago still hadn’t sprouted the soil (soaked 24 hr then paper towel until tap root had grown) and when I looked in on them last night, I noticed TINY little mushrooms sprouting :tired_face:Worrying that the soil I had used to pot them in (as well as transplant my two larger WWAFS (Big girl and Little Girl), I had a temporary freak out and decided not to wait to use the new bag of FF Happy Frog I purchased and went ahead and transplanted Big and Little into new five gallon cloth pots with FF Soil. Given that I had been watering with tap water (found pH to Be 8 plus) and the realization that the soil mix I’d gotten at Home Depot was sprouting fungi, I took the chance to move my girls to better conditions. Hoping I have helped rather than harm them, they look fine this morning, no sign of shock.

Fingers crossed that I haven’t killed them. Lessons learned. They did have some really nice roots established, but the soil smelled musty and moldy so I’m hoping I did the right thing.

Edit to say that I couldn’t find any trace of my little sprouts in the small pots growing fungi. I seived the soil a bit, came up with nothing. Proving to be an expert seed killer, have two nice plants growing and one little seed germinating and one still on reserve. 4/10 not such a good record, considering buying one of those mini propagation stations for my next run.

That’s. A great :+1: idea buy the propagation tray with a heat mat and a 7inch dome you’ll want the height
I’m thinking about buying a thermostat for mine also
You should always water with ph water between 6.8 and 6.3 in soil
When sprouting seeds soil needs to stay warm
lights that have ir in them help also just FYI
Happy growing

Thanks! Last night I picked up a Philips Fluorescent plant/aquarium tube light, 13W T8. I’ve got my soaked seed in a peat pot in a small plastic berry container, sitting on propagation mat, with light over the top, resting on some soup cans :slight_smile: to keep it about 3" above…cannot feel significant heat so going with this until my sprout pops. Fingers crossed!

Using DI H2O ph’d to 6.5. (Massachusetts growers, 0.99/gallon at Market Basket)

My 2 WWAF girls look the same since transplanting 36 hr ago. Will post pics tonight @48 hrs since transplant.

Really really want this to work!

New seeds from ILGM arrived yesterday, about 10 days after ordering. THANK YOU!:sunglasses:

The matts are designed to raise soil temp about 10 degrees above room temp also don’t place it on concrete it will suck all the heat out of mat just a FYI in case you where not aware bro
Woohoo seeds arrived
Happy growing

Thanks! Actually set on top of a plastic liner tray on top of a dog crate :slight_smile:

Update 2/20

2/20 update

I estimate that my plants are 40 days from seed. I added a second 300W LED (Roleadro white light) yesterday, and have been watering only with pH 6.5 DI H2O. Plants tolerated their transplant last week to FFHF with no noticeable stress.

Some questions -
Are the pretty pretty growing things in the close ups their pistils? They just arrived sometime today, I think!

I have some LED burn on my smaller plant, and I think maybe some clawing on her fan leaves?
Am I at the pre-flowering stage?

Thanks for following my first Grow! Advice and suggestions welcome!

6 weeks from seed:

Lots of pre-flowering sites!!

So happy, can’t wait to enjoy them :heart_eyes:

Big Girl now 9" tall, very bushy, slight aroma :slight_smile:

Little girl only 7" tall and less bushy but lots of preflowering sites, she’s a trooper :kissing_heart:

Little girl has these reddish dots on her stems today important? She is under full spectrum lamp, artifact or something else?

Edited to add that big girl has red dots on her stems as well, just not as evident.

Big girl grew four inches taller in the past I’ve days, little girl grew three!

I think we are flowering? Being first grow - I’m not sure - Tons of “flowering sites” but no buds yet. Not sure if I need to change th lights? These are autoflowering.

Added 12W LED side lights on each side to help all of the smaller flowers and leaves underneath grow.

Enjoy the pics!



Fed 1/2 strength Cal Mag (sensi)


Nice @Sl1 coming right along, great job so far

Home after 5 days away, had a friend come by on 3/3 and water (1/3-1/2 gallon each) and top off the watering stake bottles

Big Girl is now 18" tall, stems thick and stretched a lot since lights were raised. Little girl has not grown much taller, she is now 12" tall but heavier with buds than Big Girl. First feeding with Sensi Nirvana (1/2 strength), plus another round of Sensi Cal Mag at 1/4 strength.

Nice to come home to baby buds! Cannot wait!

*we had our heat on set back for five days so temps in the tent ranged 73-77, about 5 degrees cooler than what’s been normal - hopefully not too much stress.

Please enjoy the photos, comments are greatly appreciated. Have no real idea when they’ll be ready but I’m thinking April 1. Started these seeds 1/15/16.

Couldn’t have done it without the support here!:heart_eyes:

Compact Little Girl is a flowering powerhouse

Big girl is stretchy, hope she fills in!


Updated 3/8

Big Girl is 18.5" tall, I think she has stopped growing.

Has lots of flowers - are they supposed to be this far apart? I hope they fill in. :relieved:

Little Girl is stopped at 11" for a few days or more, she’s got LOADS of flowers everywhere. I put LED side lights 12W in there and rotate the plants each day twice to get under the canopy.

Things are getting crowded, I don’t know what I’m going to do with the 2 Gold Leaf seedlings?



Those are totally awesome brother,well done,keep up the great grow :thumbsup: @Sl1
