    Just like the title says I kinda got a little ahead of myself.
    This is mainly gonna be so I can hopefully get things together a little better than I have thus far.
    Started off with 5 bagseed my learning curve with these pellets I was using cost me 4 of them ao down to 1
    I have 2 lights a 400 and a 1000 HP's/mh fan filter combo about 15 feet of ducting .
    5gal airpots with ffof soil and the 3 pack basic ff nutes.
    I make my water a day in advance let it set then add my nutes an hour or so before I water
    Have been giving a gallon over two days or so when it's dry knuckle deep and light
    I water plain water / water / nutes/ water / water/ nutes .
    As of today it has re ieved nutes only twice
    Next watering will be either tomorrow or next day and will be clean water.
    I mix the nutes at 1/2 strength the websites feeding schedule says to.

    I'm currently growing in my bedroom closet.
    I originally had it vegging under the 400 but then my 1k came in and I hooked it up to make sure it worked and didn't feel like unhooking it again. So the 400 is in a box on the floor in another room.
    I topped the plant twice hopefully did it correctly
    Am having a few issues with new growth being weird when it comes out.
    I think I fed it nutes too soon it recovered just fine.
    I want to eventually get a tent or plastic to partition off another room I have to use as a flower
    My idea is to veg in my closet under the 400 then flower in my other room under the 1k.
    Just have to get the other room together
    I've spent so much money do far slot that I didn't habe to sadly.
    Have been keeping a written journal to keep track of everything will post pics once I get better service

    If you're gonna spend all that money you might as Well chuck the bagseed and get some professional seeds. You're just wasting time on bagseed trust me bro.

    I've been trying but having problems finding a seed bank that I can order from with a prepaid card.
    I want to run 5 auto flowers from seedsman but afraid to send cash overseas
    Thanks for the suggestion tho bro
    I agree 100%

    When you water just water thoroughly and let it dry out good in between waterings. Giving it water over a few days and as frequent as you explained above is no good. That size plant in 5 gallons will go several days between waterings.

    Don't give any of the Tiger bloom until full flower has started. Go half strength on the GB ..... the Big Bloom is the only organic of those three nutes. So you can give it at suggested general feedings with no issue. None of this will matter if you don't stop suffocating those roots with constant water though.

    Prince Vegeta,
    Gonna follow along here...looks interesting.

    Nothing wrong with growing a bagseed just for practice and experience. May even get some decent smoke from it.

    You might check out some of the Canadian seedbanks. They are more likely to have credit card options.

    A gallon makes it simple to mix up your nutrients regardless. Just let the soil dry out good in between waterings. Letting your plant start to wilt a little before you give water again is a good way to figure out a schedule for watering. A wilted plant will literally recover in minutes right before your eyes. Where an overwatered plant will be stunted and have a host of other issues along with it. That plant will go several days between waterings. Just water the plant thoroughly and wait until she asks for water.

    make sure you water nice and slow after the soil dries out. I like to hit the soil with some water and then wait about 10 minutes to finish watering. The soil has a hard time taking up water all at once. By watering some and giving it 10 minutes before you finish....The soil has a chance to get the sponge effect going. Biggest thing is to let that soil dry out really good in between waterings. Even lifting the pot can tell you if there's still water in the soil. I however like to water and wait for wilt to get my schedule dialed in.


    Again GL

    The soil is only guna hold so much water regardless. I'd bet you could go closer to 4 or 5 days between watering that size plant in 5 gallons of soil.

    hey as far as seeds go I like James Bean Co. They take card, are super duper responsive and helpful, and I have never waited more than 5 business days for my order. Discreet too.

    My girls are in 3 gallon pots, they drink a 40 ouncer every 48 hours.. on average, with none or very little run off.

    Every third or fourth watering I run 20% through and usually test it too.. (theoretically, at least).. hope that helps with your watering schedule and if you want a good seed bank that takes credit cards check out the Single Seed Centre for great product and customer service ? Good luck!:leaf:
