Well I harvested my first grow and finally smoked a small nug from it today while the rest is drying/curing. For being bag seed it got me baked and it smells and tastes nice. My thread was here My first try. I've learned that I have a lot to learn
and my first smoked bud is here. I wish I knew how to tag people from that thread…
I started with 6 plants of bag seed and 3 turned out to be males, and most of the grow I only used a 65w grow light lol. I started adding more lights a bit into flower.
So this one hopefully will go better as far as size of plants and yield. My friend provided me with a Northern Lights Auto, a White Widow Auto, and a Critical feminized photo. They came from a seedbank called Royal Queen?
2 Fecida 130 watt led lights
2 Fedica 65 watt led lights.
Plan to add more over the next couple weeks.
iPower 4x4 tent
Vivosun 4" fan and filter
5 gallon Fabric pots
Fox Farm OF Soil 70%ish
Fox Farm Happy Frog Soil 30%ish
I watered the soil a long day before planting the sprouts, and pluffed it a bit before planting the seeds. Not planning on watering until they are dry for sure. I overwatered my seedlings last time. Hopefully not this time!
Thanks man! I’m definitely ready to keep learning and this one should be fun with 2 autoflower plants and one photo. I have a smaller tent to put the photo in when its time. Very excited this is addictive lol!
I put some Wendy’s cups over the 2 autoflowers yesterday. The critical photo didnt get a dome. It definitely brings in the moisture. I only sprayed thge inside of the cups with a little water. The leaves on the plants are collecting beads and drinking I reckon…
Approaching the 3 week mark over the next few days, went up this afternoon and they were hot and dry!! So I got a vent and fan going and then turned on the humidifier. I decided (perhaps a bit early) to go ahead and do some lst on the auto’s. The critical in the center just got transplanted. I was blown away by how nice the roots were in the cup it was in. They were big, white and covering the bottom of that cup big time.
The critical feminized is about to go into its own 30x30 tent and I didnt picture it on here this time. I am about to order some new gear, including a better light for the 4x4 tent so I can grow more than a couple plants. I will use these fecida 130w lights in the small tent and I think I might go with an HLG 600 rspec for the 4x4 tent so I can grow more on the next grow. Still looking though.
Thanks! They are nice lights for the price. They seem good for growing on a budget or just testing the waters, but the need for more and better lights is already here for sure. I will check out your grow in the forum for sure. Its an addiction lol.
I wanted to grow 2 plants and when I unboxed it I knew that wouldn’t work. I may still be a little underpowered but I figure I can add it in to help out if I need to. Yeah man, come on over check it out, i’m just stumbling along. Definitely addicted though!
Plants look nice and healthy. Congrats on all you learned from your first grow. Im in my second growing season, and i think i enjoy watching them grow as much as the end product. But both growing and partaking will always be my biggest hobby.
