My first grow

131 posts in this topic

Ideally you want your extraction running 24/7 as the plant still needs fresh air with co2 but at this stage with only one seedling you'll be ok. When the plant gets bigger and you add your mate's plant in there the humidity will go up ;)

Here are a couple of pics from tonight.

 

im a bit worried about the spacing between the nodes, are they a little close together? Should I raise my light a little? It's currently 10" above  her. Also, the way the leaves are pointing down. I've had a fan blowing on her which I think could be the cause of this so I positioned it slightly  to the side so as not to ruffle her too much

 

ive given her two feeds today, once at 0600 and again at 2000. 200ml each time, ph6.0 ec0.5  large.921BEA91-1D80-47C4-A146-3B0FC0FA2348.jpeglarge.43FC69C9-72CA-4C95-9B85-61BE9C8144F5.jpeg

Cheers for looking in @CASHMONEY28G

Good to know she’s looking healthy.

 

It’s been a bit of a slow start but looks like she’s gonna start to fill out now.

Everything is looking spot on mate :yep: the internode distance is perfect :)

 

Let her get some root structure and we will see a much more vigorous growth phase kick in :)

 

She looks super health and happy  :)

 

Nice work so far and thanks for the update and added pictures, much appreciated!

 

Until next time mate  :bong:

 

All the best

I'm not letting the pot dry out, just feed when the pot feels half the weight from the last feed and making sure I get decent run off. I made up a litre of nutes including silicon and calmag, and once this is gone I'll give her a flush of just ph adjusted water before making up another litre. If I make up a litre at a time then it's not sitting around too long rather than a big batch and leave it sitting for weeks. 

 

Im struggling to keep temps up above 17-18c when the lights are off. Sometimes even as low as 15! I think I'm gonna have to get some kind of heat pad for her to stand on and at least try to keep the root temps up. But to be fair she doesn't look like she's feeling any ill effects of it. Blue cheese is a pretty hardy strain as far as I've read and the silicon should help a little too shouldn't it?

Well done pal for a beginner your dialled in,much much better than my first grow.

 

my first grow was 1 plant in 1.2m by 1.2m 50ltr bucket hydro,

never ph'd it from tap to bucket my tap water ph is 7.2.

it was in a loft in winter my nights of temp went down to +5c

no aquarium heater in tank

my ec went to 3.9 miscalculated my nutes.

dident flush before harvest,straight chop.

cheese cuttin veged for 4 weeks and 8 week flower.

600w hps 

 

results,

 

16oz dry rock hard buds

dark smoke and black ash

tasted like tare my throat was real fucked

ended up giving a friend my 16oz for 5oz of his cheese.

 

i reckon if I flushed it for around 10 days would have been a lot better,but you live and learn.

 

well done pal all the best.

Cheers for the tip @CASHMONEY28G, I might try this just before I give her a flush. Let the pot dry up a little, flush with ph’d water, then back on the nutes. I was planning on flushing every 2 weeks anyway, just for 1 feed so this routine could fit into my schedule

Cheers @Nitro420. If I can get anywhere close to your first yield but with hopefully better quality then I’ll be ecstatic! Haha 

 

im so sick of paying top dollar of shitey weed that I’m willing to put a lot of time and effort into making this a success. If I can manage to get her all the way through to harvest without fucking things up I’ll hopefully never have to pay for weed again. 

 

Its why I joined this forum. So I could learn and get advice from experienced growers to give me the best chance of maximising yield and quality. I knew if I made a diary and regularly updated it with pics as well as writing about what I’ve been doing then people would be interested and hopefully they might impart some knowledge along the way. And I must say it’s been amazing so far. I feel like I’ve learmed so much already and the photos of her prove that she’s coming along nicely. I may not follow every bit of advice but I take it all on board. Most of it I follow though. Things like the gas lantern lighting routine I found in @Green demon‘s signature. I’d never even heard of that before. I’d always assumed 18/6 then 12/12 for a photo cos that’s all I’d ever heard. But now I’m using it and with any luck the results will show at the end. 

 

Didn’t realise I’d rabbited on quite so much there.  I’m off for a smoke and a munch :skin_up:

Wish you all the pal.happy growing our much needed medication,better than going to the doctors who are happy to make these drugs companies billions in using us as guinea pigs,all I can say to these cockroaches is go and FUCK yourselves you evil bastards.

 

peace.
