First Grow (literally going with the flow)

Indoor Cheap setup

All 3 pots are Vivosun 3 gal, soil is Fox Farm ocean forest with added perlite, currently using Cal-Mag and fox farm trio nutrients (Big bloom, Grow big, Buds & Bloom) I created a grow tent from a Tall wardrobe box(24”Wx24”Dx44”H)- I lined the walls of the box with the heavy duty aluminum foil shiny side out, and cut necessary holes! Currently using 3 Great Value LED 65w light (3 are more blue spectrum and one more red spectrum, but all 4 cover necessary parts of the spectrum. And finally for fans, I ripped out a cooling fan from a computer tower and sliced the cords with a old u.s.b cable and I use that for induction(fresh air). Had a blower fan before but kept getting too hot, so I bought a clip on desktop fan(way better)

3 unknown Seeds(from random bags I’ve saved)

volcanobag Sweet I’ve got one of these tents

Cris•Co

Cris•Co I love it so far! Only problem I have is temperature. I can only run one of my 1200 watt lights, temp likes to hover around 80-81 degrees! I put in a clip on fan and opened the bottom right vent...

Cris•Co

Cris•Co Do you think it’s possible to add a mini ac unit outside facing through the vent. Only thing I’m worried about is it raising the humidity levels to high

First plant is doing great, definitely gonna get bestva 2000w rather than 4 65w grow lights!!! Second plants spots are getting worse but plant is still moving along just fine! Have her extra cal mag hopefully that solves the problem

So first plant is moving along perfect! She is focusing on buds. Second plant is moving along a little slower n starting to worry about it. About 3 days ago these tiny brown spots started popping up on all of the leaves. The plant is acting healthy but these spots are making me nervous and I want to chop it down n harvest before it gets too bad! What should I do???

Cris•Co

Cris•Co So it’s come to my understanding that these brown spots is calcium deficiency. SO! with that being said gonna go 5 maybe 6 ml on her separately

So both of them definitely slowed down on the stretch and leaf growth. Plants are focused on bud growth. Got jewelers loupe in and took some rookie shots! Will have better shots next update!

ogeast Looking good. Looks like you might have about 2-3+ weeks left. Rough guesstimate of course.

Cris•Co

Cris•Co Thanks ogeast I’m hoping the buds might plump a little more but still happy I had the plans of waiting until mid feb They will be exactly 3 months

Soo white hairs are starting to turn orange! Buds are starting to grow in size! Trichomes are super heavy on bud and moving down leaves on left plant. Right plant is not as bushy nor does it compare in trichomes! Left plant developing a cheesy earthly smell and right plant smells like purp not sure how else to describe it other than purp lol... oh added dual light sockets, love them

Long White hairs everywhere😁! Not stretching as hard anymore, bud sites are increasing and getting bigger, hairs getting longer! Leaves are starting to get frosty! Kind just letting them do their thing, going to water again 6.0 ph cal-mag bloom n buds

Buds sites are coming in, nice long white hairs! Went a little hard on the nutrients so I’m going to give straight ph’d 6-6.5 water. The bigger of the two has some tips burning on leaves! Also- chopped down the male! Starting getting nervous! Sacs was getting huge could not risk pollination

Day: 35

What Is This!?!?! From a distance it just looks like a white tip but up close it’s a bunch of tiny sacks. I’m completely lost help!?!?!?!

blueherbalist

blueherbalist Looks like either a male plant or a hermaphrodite. Be careful those could release pollen and cause your other plants to produce seeds. I would recommend killing the plant if you can

Colalition Kill it. Male plant.

Day: 35

Thank you BlueHerbalist!! Moved this guy into old box. Really don’t care if he lives or dies just want the pollen honestly!!! These other two still are not showing sex, but all 3 where put on 12-12 at same time.. kmales definitely show faster and get bigger , only took one week on new light schedule for him to show

blueherbalist Happy to help! Keep growing 👌

Day: 34

Moved the lights to 12:12 about 5 days ago now. The biggest is starting to look white on the very top of the cola ( not sure if it’s starting to bud or I’m missing something). The growth since the switch has been very vigorous! Also still don’t know the sex of any of them!

TwoScoops152

TwoScoops152 Your are going through what is known as the stretch. Sex of plants should be soon! Stay patient

CrisCo91

CrisCo91 Cool so anxious lol But thanks TwoScoops! Hopefully I will see what they are by next week.. there are nodes there but cannot tell if it make or female yet, too small

Decided to buy some clips and dye-chemical free string. Gonna try some LST(light stress training) I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing, literally hrs of research online and going with my babies flow

jlieffering

jlieffering Try using a pruning method on one!! You’ll see a big difference. LST is goo if you have the branches to pull it off. Aim is to make the plants lower so they have more height to grow and to spread of the vegetation so the plant absorbs more light. Looks good so far to me!!

CrisCo91

CrisCo91 Thanks but pruning?!?!?🤔 what exactly would I cut off All of the lower smaller leaves 🍃

jlieffering

jlieffering If you cut the peak leaves about 3-4 down, leaving just the lower section of the two leaves. (Small ones coming right out the top) you will make the plant produce another branch, instead of coming to a peak with 1 bud, you’ll have a peake with 2 buds. And you can do it more times, which gives you more branches.... which gives you more buds.

combatmedic81 Why not just buy a tent ?

CrisCo91

CrisCo91 Well I already had a lot of the material just laying around besides the box pots soil and nutrients And this is way cheaper until I can buy the tent I want This set up would never work in a decent tent lol I’m trying 😁

ogeast

ogeast Although this is not the ideal growing environment, i gotta commend you for being so crafty. You went through a lot of trouble, my good goodness. Best of luck 🤞

mystrain420

mystrain420 It’s great your such a craftsman/woman 👍🏾. Try the $1 pack of solo cups, roots die from light so the clear pots will hurt in the future. U also need stronger light also or bring it a lot closer the node spacing shows.

CrisCo91

CrisCo91 Thank you soo much And definitely going to get some solo cups for future And there is a light I want to buy but money isn’t balling lol Using 3 great value 65w grow lights Thinking about adding one more But next month I will be getting a 2000w can’t wait
