Hello Overgrow community.
I am a recovering attorney. I was once a public defender, but after experiencing some fairly nasty stuff, I no longer practice law.
A couple of years ago, my wife and I moved to recreational-legal state and I have been growing my personal stash ever since. Even though it’s legal to grow in the state, it would be a lease violation if the apartment management company were to discover it, so I don’t grow a lot. I also don’t use a lot, so I only grow a couple of plants or so per year. If my wife and I ever get around to buying a house, I will probably expand my grow a bit, but probably not by much.
Right now, I have a small tent 2’ X 2.5’ X 7’ (60 cm X 75 cm X 210 cm). I have a 135 watt Quantum Board light. I try to keep things as simple as possible. I started this most recent grow with Advanced Nutrients, but, I started seeing problems, so mid-Flower, I switched to Mega Crop. I’m not sure the plants have recovered, but I look forward to a Mega Crop only grow soon.
I have grown in soil and now in perlite/vermiculite hempy buckets. I may try other things down the road as well. I’m just trying to find the way of growing that gives me the fewest problems.
I have only grown autoflowers so far. I am a big fan of Mephisto Genetics, FastBuds, Dutch Passion and Dinafem - in that order. I haven’t grown any photoperiods yet. I’m not saying I won’t grow photoperiods, but I don’t see myself doing it any time soon.
I am a member of most online grow-related communities because I like to read and research. I also like to see the real world application of that research. There are some very inventive people and they are producing some phenomenal results. I have been able to learn a lot from the other boards, and I hope I can continue learning here. More importantly, I hope that I can contribute to this community.
