1st grow any advice welcome

So Iím on my first grow at the moment; setup is;

1.2m2 tent
1x 600w hps
Black orchid centrifugal fan/rhino filter
2x 6 inch desk fans (a third ready if needed)

Currently running 1 of each of the following;
Wedding cake x gelato 33
Holy grail Kush
Cotton candy cane (emerald triangle)
Crystal gelato
Bubba Kush BX

Hornet hydro coco a&b
Vita link cal-mag
About to introduce AN bud candy from the next feed and also looking at getting AN big bud and b52 (unless anyone can recommend anything better)

Medium is coco coir
Ph 5.8/5.9
20/30% run off every feed

Just coming up to the end of the first week 12/12 (lights on 8pm-8am) everything seems to be going well so far, still awaiting the first sign of flowers to show. Plenty of bud sites forming for my first grow its looking well (to me anyway &#128514 will put some pics on once the lights are on in about 20 mins. Any input is welcome ✌️ - cotton candy cane - crystal gelato Wedding cake x33 - bubba BX - holy grail

Howdee not many people respond to journals more for your own records .That being said plants look great . B 52 i use for seedlings but the big bud works great in coco around 3 rd week or so could prob drop the calmag if using coco nutes . bud candy helps sweeten things up but i found it made all the bud taste the same you could get by with out it. Anyways just my humble opinion and you are off to a great start the plants must be pushing the pistils out by now post some more pics ..

Your plants look good. Coming off of 8 years of hydro nutes I have 1 critical piece of advice. Keep it simple until you have a depth of understanding that each product/bottle offers. Donít add things just because others have had success. There needs to be scientific reasoning behind why each product is added. If you donít have at least marginal understanding of this youíre setting up future problems and complicating the solution youíll need to figure out in the future. Also, if itís got flashy marketing or pretty girls on the label or costs more that $20/quart youíre likely being sold snake oil. Thereís a reason these products donít exist and arenít used in commercial agriculture. Some of the best hydro weed I ever grew was a $10 tub of jacks classic 20-20-20 used from seed to flush. 1 product. Zero issues. Fantastic yield. Itís a plant, it doesnít care if you paid $10/ml. At the molecular level itís not any different then the 50lb bag for $15 bucks at the feed store. When you run into issues (we all do) the less products you use/mix the easier it is to correct.

As you gain experience youíll find you can deviate from this but for a first grow, simple as possible and you WILL be happy with the results and so will your wallet.

A full tent shot would be cool The plants look nice! I'd just make sure to go real light on the additives, although one big burst of a flowering formula seems to kick them into flower hard (IMO), which is fun to watch.
