Tri_Cho_Me's First Grow & Grow Diary

Hello everyone!

So excited to start this thread finally. Everything is ready and in place. Seeds should be here in the next week. Strawberry Kush and Sour Diesel (ILGM seeds). Thinking I'm gonna go with the Kush first since Indica is an easier plant to grow. Or so I read.

The below is what I currently have, or in the nutrient/water area (since Im not currently growing) what I plan to use.

Media:
  • Fox Farms Happy Frog - 26.4 Liters or .93 cubic ft.
  • Fox Farms Ocean Forest - 42.5 Liters or 1.5 cubic ft.
  • Perlite - 3 dry quarts (both HF and OF already had some)
  • Earthworm Castings - 1 cup (OF already had some)
*This was all mixed in a large Rubbermaid, and will be used as needed.

Pots: 5 gallon smart/fabric pots (seeding in solo cups)
Water: Tap water pH'd & left out overnight
Nutrients: MaxiBloom in veg / Fox Farms Tiger Bloom in flower (molasses with every feeding)
Light: Advanced Platinum Series P450
Grow space: 2x4x7 mylar tent / 4in. intake, 6 in. outake with charcoal filter / Two small 2-speed fans

Don't hesitate to comment or make any suggestions.
Can't wait to get this party started!

I'll do my best to help. I'll start by letting you know that thermometer sitting on top of the light will give you very inaccurate readings. Get that situated near the tops of plants during your grow. In a tent with limited space I may stick a dowel rod in a pot and tape the thermometer to it moving it up as plants grow. Just one suggestion. And I know we touched in it but DEFINITELY don't go from the solo cups to the 5 gallon pots. Id go solo to one gallon to three then five. I must say 5 gallon pots seem pretty big for that tent. Remember, quality not quantity throughout your grow. Bigger doesn't always mean better.

Haha! I knew someone would say something about that. I had just gotten the light up and got excited and threw the thermometer on there for the picture. I'll have to tie it because it's magnetic and there is nowhere to hang it like that.

Have you seen the 5 gallon Smart pots? They're tiny. They actually fit really good in there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arKEsS_ESSk This guy is using a 15 gallon smart pot in the exact same size tent.
Also, I would rather go from solo cup to 5 gallon. than transplant all those times and keep stressing my plant out.

Ok but again I assure you it's difficult to properly water a new root system from a solo cup to a 5 gal pot. Transplanting doesn't have to be stressful for you or the plants. Actually, I enjoy doing it. I get to see firsthand the health of my root system and I notice my plants jump to life immediately following a transplant. It also gives you an opportunity to sprinkle mychorrizae on the root system which is incredibly helpful and beneficial to the plants. If you decide to go ahead and transplant directly into 5 gallon pots I'd be very careful and pay very close attention to what you're doing when watering and feeding.

It will be a learning experience for us both!

Hard to lead you astray if you don't take my advice. No worries though I totally understand. And I changed my mind. I think you should plant directly into 5 gallon pots. The best way to learn is by making mistakes. That being said it's likely you will do just fine and the plants will be just fine however, it is wiser and better practice to step up.

Whats the fun in just being a robot and doing everything someone is telling you to do? I guess that's why I said it will be a learning experience for us both. Chill out man. Don't take stuff so personally.

Just because I ask for advice or suggestions from someone on a forum doesn't mean I need my hand held. I have gardening experience, just not with cannabis.
