Hello RIU. As the title states I'm going to be growing some auto's in a closet and see how long I can go before my gf discovers it. Lol.
The closet is in a spare room, and I'm going to be growing only a few at a time for old time's sake. Set up is as follows:
Strain - Nirvana's Short Rider.
Approx 240 true watts 2700k CFLs used throughout life of plants.
FFOF soil, 4 gallon pots - Nutes will be considered in a few weeks.
Here is the first plant 7 days in.
My goal is to complete this grow all the way through without being discovered by my chick. Not for fear of anything in particular, just for my personal amusement. If she discovers the plants, she will just roll her eyes. Lol if she doesn't find it, on the day of harvest I'll say "Hey let me show you something" LOL
I planned this grow to have two plants about 10 days apart just for my personal learning experience. My first grow was a complete failure; insufficient lighting and nute problems were just the start of it. Now let's never speak of that again.
Short Rider was chosen for a few reasons. Firstly, a buddy of mine grew it and it was fantastic smoke, and the plants were tiny. He averaged an Oz per plant in a similar set up. That is more than fine as far as yield goes for me. Secondly, my buddies Short Riders only began to stink toward the end so that buys me plenty of time to figure out odor control.
Second seed has been soaked and I expect sprout tomorrow, so I'll post pix of that one when it's up.
