    Wassup Y'all

    I'm back at it with my third grow and this time I'm keeping the plant:bigjoint:. If you have followed my past two blogs I had them growing elsewhere. Now I have my own place, so I am super stoked to begin and finish this grow.

    PC Box: 19"x9"x22"

    1 Passive intake and 1 120mm outtake fan with carbon filters

    Morsen 150w UFO LED(50w actual drawn (I will also be purchasing an extra one in the future)) and two 10w LED china cheepo lights

    Nirvana's Feminized Blue Mystic

    Black Gold's Organic potting Mix and Vermicrop's fire potting mix, Azomite Powder, Dolomite Lime, and Worm Castings

    All Organic nutes, Garrett Juice, worm castings tea

    Without further ado, the plant is on Day 11 and looking really good. The humidity has been on the low side about 29% but it's getting back up to 40%. Still not optimal, but I am spraying every so often and putting wet towels. Anybody have any ideas on adding Humidity to a PC Box?

    I plan on vegging it for over a month as well as buying an extra LED UFO to supplement the 50w. Right now there is 70w which is doable for Veg, but 100w for flower is preferred. However, these things take money and I'm on a strict budget. I will be keeping the plant in its pot for one more week then transferring it. Anyways, here it is.

    ... no? It looks to me like it's growing a little slow, as well I was wanting to wait a little more to purchase my light. Do you think it would overgrow it? How much longer do you think I need to flip it?

    You should look into it, it may seem intimidating at first because there is a fuck ton of information. I am still sorting through it all, but start with something small and work from there

    Day 15

    Wassup y'all

    I wanted to wait a week because I always hate it when grow journals spam me with small growth. However, Betty (Blue Mystic) turns 2 weeks so I thought that I would share some pics and info on her.

    Yesterday I mixed the potting soil together with over three gallons of Vermifire, perlite, a few cups of worm Castings, Azomite and Dolomite. Then instead of starting the cooking process with water, I used Garrett juice. The soil was already really moist so I didn't spray it too much, just enough not to have the soil mix soaking wet but to get the microbes eating. I wanted to cook the soil for at least a week, but this plant is growing really fast and I can only imagine what it's going to look like when it's transplanted. Ipso facto, I will not be vegging for a whole month. I plant to transplant then flip so by tomorrow next week they would be flipping.

    Although these LED lights are on the cheaper and low quality end, this plant is growing much faster than on CFL's, which is very exciting. There is already growth between all the nodes, so that's really great.

    The humidity has been shitty, the lowest was 16 and highest I have seen was like 40. The house I live in is 108yrs old and the below freezing temperatures and wooden floors, just take away all the moisture. I'm using a towel wicking method, but even after wicking and drying the high for humidity was 31:finger::cuss: temperatures have been fine though. All in all I'm satisfied with this grow, and am surprised at the quick growth. Anyways here's the porn:

    Day 17

    I did not transplant Betty today, but watered and foliar fed with Garrett Juice and Hydrolyzed Sea Kelp. I sprayed it after the lights went out so hopefully I'll see the fruits of it here in a few days.

    Transplanting today; I haven't observed any growth in the past few days and saw roots coming out of the soil. I started noticing leaves dropping as well as the cotyledons have turned yellow. I looked up stunted growth and read about it being root bound. so I took out the pot and observed foot long roots wrapped around on the bottom. So will definitely be transplanting tonight. I will post pics in a few day, ready for this girl to blow up!
