- Am starting this journal on day 51 of Veg. I'm growing in a 10'x10' spare room, using 2 HydroFarm Sunburst 400W HPS/MH Convertable lights, have a 6" inline exhaust fan and a regular box fan for air circulation. I have mainly Random Bag Seed, but did purchase 10 Kalashnikova feminized seeds from The Additude (only 8 survived) and three clones a friend gave me to raise.Have just transplanted to larger (1gal) pots and changing up my nutrient regimen . I originally tried to use everything that was recommended and found out quickly that wasn't the way to go. And now use FoxFarm's Liquid Nutrient Trio Soil Formula - Big Bloom,Grow Big & Tiger Bloom and am doing soooo much better. I am trying a couple growing techniques that I'm impressed with. LST (Less Stress Training) seems to be GREAT! and a couple days ago I tried "Super Cropping" on a couple that seemed too tall & bushy. A friend gave me 3 clones to put under my lights & the improvement is unreal! Will post the before & after pics that I have. Since the transplant everything looks lovely! Now if these babies grow into their new homes it will be great!
Here's the first clone I was given to help....saddest Lemon Skunk on earth
And this is today
This is another clone that I was given to raise (BubbleGum) I had it for a couple weeks before I took this (who would think of a camera on their phone? LOL)
And this is same plant today
So, so far so good.
Here's a couple shots of the grow room in general:
(this one is today)
and the better LST plants. I use twist ties on them & secure them to rim of pot instead of using wire to secure them to the dirt. I like my way better.
So, this is my first attempt...at growing & journal. Let me know what you think.
