So i've been keeping a diary of my first time marijuana grow over the past month.. but I figured this forum would be the best place to post my progress. So I'll include a breakdown of my progress so far.
I bought 10 Carmelicious seeds from Amsterdam online. I picked these seeds because of the 20% THC level, high yield, and they are supposed to be good for first time indoor growers. 5 of the 9 seeds that I germinated made it past the seedling stage.
1.) 72 hours after germinated seed were planted, seedling stage, 400watt Metallic Halide, Hydroponic Drip System. 1 inch tall!
2.) 12 Days after germinated seeds were planted. Hydroponic watering every 8 hours for 15mins.. small amount of nutrients. PH around 6.8
3.) ~18 days in. 4 sets of leaves on primary plants. Moved into larger planter pots
4.) 21 Days in. Increase in leaf size and new secondary leafs are begininning to form on existing branches. Drip nozzle watering 3x a day... Light cycle 19hrs ON / 5hrs OFF
5.) 26 days in. Vegetative room. Excess water drains out the bottom of the container and into the 20 gallon bucket below the table (cant see it here) that contains the pump. Moved biggest plant to a larger planter.. and the other plants have been moved to medium size planters.. Considering moving to an Aeroponics system.
6.) 1 month (31 days) since start. Moved plants to Aeroponics system. Small fan is no longer sufficient.. Will be adding a large box fan soon. Large plants are all over 1 foot tall.. smaller plants are about 5"
