    Hello everyone, this is my first actual grow. I’m using cheap soil that I mixed up from Home Depot with a little bit of worm castings I harvested myself. Seed is a blue dream bagseed I believe and am growing it mostly to build the soil life.

    Seed germinated 9/16/18 and was planted in half peat moss and half worm castings with some rice hulls. I plan on growing organic no till. I’m starting the seed with a 45 watt led light than will switch to a Mars Hydro 240 watt reflector led light. Light schedule is 16/8 for now.

    Strain: Blue Dream
    Tent: 2X2X4
    Light: 45w Led/240w reflector led
    Temperature:77 degrees Fahrenheit
    Humidity: 47%

    Let me know if there’s a better format to post. Still new to this.

    Today the seed popped up. Temperature with light in is about 81 with humidity around 40% outside the humidity dome. Probably higher inside. All I’ve been doing is spraying the inside of it with water. We’ll update more as more things happen.

    Day one seedling
    Temperature: 81
    Humidity: 40%

    Day 3
    Temperature: 80
    RH: 38

    I planted some cover crop on the 3 inch pot. Clover to fix nitrogen in the soil. Some germinated already and should sprout in the next few days. Soil is still moist. Open the humidity dome a bit. Tomorrow I will open the holes completely than remove it completely. I plan on making an ewc tea and giving it to my 5 gallon smart pot and the seedling. Just to brew some bacteria. Will post more updates as they come.

    Day 6
    Temp: 81
    RH:52%
    I planted some cover crop on the 5 gallon container. Crimson clover as cover crop. Still in the 3 inch pot for now. Plant was falling over so I used some hemp wick to keep it up. Have a fan in there so hopefully it will strengthen the plant stem. True leaves have sprouted.

I’m currently in day 40 since switched to flower. Still has white hairs and almost all trichomes are clear. I predict I have about 3-4 weeks left. Maybe more. The light is about ten inches from the plant and both veg and bloom switches are on. I’m hoping to get at least half an Oz but idk if that’s gonna happen. Also thought about taking the small branch down earlier in flower but decided to keep it

    DAY 43 since flipping to flower and the buds are swelling up nice. They’re feeling really dense. More amber hairs than before. I’d say about 50/50. Trichomes are now mostly cloudy with very little amber and some still clear. I’m thinking another week and I’ll chop but I’m not sure. If anyone reads this, let me know if it’s too soon. I’ll post pics leading up to chop. I’m hoping to get at least half oz. 795AC325-3E90-44C2-A0FF-F315027708C7.jpeg 2F000608-1F49-4F2B-800C-FA0F1B78ED2A.jpeg
