hey there overgrow! long time smoker, first time grower. welcome to the highminwin grow show, where i hope to show you my wins and my losses, my highs and my lows as i work to become a grower of this beloved wheeee-eeed…

- 4" inline fan
- 4" carbon filter
- 6" clip-on fan (non-oscillating)
- advanced controller to control the lights, fans, and filter
- misc accessories
SOIL: fox farms ocean forest
GOALS FOR THIS GROW: learn how to grow. don’t kill too many plants. grow a decent head stash for personal smoke. my grow must be stealthy and not easily noticed. tent is setup in my bedroom. i don’t think i’ll clone, breed or seed for my first grow. though i may reveg some plants at the end.
SEEDS: 3x cinderella mix from fleur du mal and 3x tropical grex from mt zion collective. dropped into water on 4/20/22. originally i was only planning on doing 6, but I couldn’t help myself and dropped 4x durban mix from fleur du mal on 4/21.
i intentionally chose at least one runty seed from each group, although in hindsight the cinderella and tropical runts don’t seem so runty. those two durbans are definitely runty though. they seem to be half the size of their sibling seeds. will that make any difference in the final product? hopefully we’ll find out at the end in a few months time.
dropped the seeds in plain old water until they sank (1 day). then put them in moistened paper towels inside ziplock baggies. fast forward another day and a half and let’s take a peek in on these babies that’ve popped their tails. 3 for 3 on the cindys…
the tropicals were a little more stubborn, with only 1 of 3 showing tails 2.5 days since first soak. we’ll revisit these babies in a little bit with my thoughts on why they might’ve been slower to germinate.
like the cindy mixes, the durban mixes also quickly germinated with 4 of 4 showing tails even though they got started a day later than the others. fleur du mal is having a good showing! just look at the cute little buggers. do you see the runts?
now for a big family photo, 8 days since initial soak. everything is looking quite nice, except tropical 2 and 3 are quite shy, still not showing any activity as of yet. durban 1 is leading the pack in terms of growth while durban 2 is trailing the pack, being the runty-est of the runts.
in my next update, we’ll take a look at what’s going on with tropical 2 and 3.
thanks for joining along on my first grow! let’s go higher!
