Hi, so glad to see this site back up I remember when it got shut down by the fed, now states and congress are about to legalize. And now I am starting my first grow
The passage of time, and shit
I have read the growfaq and know a little bit about growing but I have a few ?'s before I start.
I literally just ordered everything I think I need to start which includes the tent (24x24x36), light (600w LED) ventilation (6 inch fan with carbon filter and ducting) aerated 5 gallon grow bags and foxfarm ocean forest soil. Surge protector and extension cord to plug everything in.
No nutrients yet, wanted your recommendations and advice when to fertilize.
Using soil because I hear the final product ends up tasting better, in addition to being easier, first grow in small tent, etc.
Humidity might be a problem with the soil though. don’t live in a humid area and I got the fan so I skipped out on the reader. Ambient temperatures won’t exceed 90 and in my closet it won’t get below 60. The fan I got is 6 inches and looks pretty heavy duty.
I’ll be doing this in a closet, I think I can fit 3 5 gallon pots in there without too much crowding.
Don’t know whether to start with feminized seeds or clones, any input on this and anything you see I may have missed appreciated.
I’ll post pics and maybe turn this into a grow log when everything gets here.
EDIT: Update I moved out of the closet into a 3x3 tent. Also going to upgrade the light to a HLG 550.
