A friend gave me 2 seeds, planted them in organic soil and they sprouted, (satiivas) its been about 5 weeks (1 week indoors) I mostly planted to see if they would take, but I've had some heath problems over the last 3 years and haven't been able to work or do much of anything including gardening, so between that and my fondness for the occasional buzz I thought it would be a decent hobby. So I proceeded to make the most ghetto grow room ever. A 33"x 34" construction paper lined room complete with 6 23 watt (6500K) CFL's and a reflector hood I made from wire hangers and more badass construction paper and they are doing fine, except for some yellowing caused by over watering. I'm not looking to get "crazy ass buds" just harvest a few buds and improve for the next grow, if I decide too, etc. Anyone ever "grown on the fly" like this and have moderate success? Any info from when to flower, how long, tips and advice from beginners and experts appreciated. P.S. I'm gonna try scrog
you can veg anywhere from 3 or 4 weeks to a couple months, just depends on how big you want the plants to get. i like to go about 5 weeks and then switch to flowering, my plants under cfl's get about 3 to 4 feet tall.
they can get big fast photo bomb
I did a ghetto green house too. Chronic pain due to herniated cervical spine. Find it extremely hard to move!! I do work but hate it. The job that is. Work well we have to do it. I think maybe you need mylar over construction paper. May be able to get at a $ store. I saw a utube video today on how to make a six bulb cfl. That's what I am going to try for flowering. Easy to make. I am female so has to be haha. I have one plant outside. Letting it go naturally. Then I have cloned her for indoor grow in the fall. Lots of information out there about small boxes or large rooms. It's kind of what u can afford, space and how handy one is. The hardest part I think is the initial setup up.
