Since I am just about done building my cabinet, I figured that i'd start a journal. I will probably edit this first post several times until I find a format that I like.
First, I'll introduce myself for anyone who hasn't seen my other introduction post. I'm Jelly, funny thing about the name, I got it because I used to be fat. It stuck with me even after I grew outta the chunky state, and started using variations of the name ever since. It's not legal in my home state to grow, but I don't have to worry so much about stealth because I live out in the middle of nowhere. 30 minutes to the closest town of any size, 10 miles down a dirt road. I grow mainly because i'm tired of paying top dollar for bottom shelf shit with no taste. And, because I like to smoke too, but I only smoke when I've got plenty of extra for the Wifey and I. So anyways, that's my shortened story, and here I am.
I built a 2x3 cabinet, and crammed 480w of potential lighting in there. I don't have a specific growing style in mind, but eventually i'd like to get to semi-organic/no till type beds. I lean towards hydro because it's what I know, despite my shitty local water quality (300+ppm and 8.0 ph out the tap) i've been able to get a few harvests already.
Currently i've got 6 seedlings, but we are only going to count 5 of them.
2 are Super Silver Haze from an unknown breeder. (Gifted to me from a friend in the UK)
3 are random bag seed from various "halfway decent" bags we've had to resort to purchasing.
Of these 3, one of them broke it's little tap root but has successfully re rooted itself and is just now starting to grow. (bottom right cup)
The one we aren't counting is a White Widow Auto from Nirvana, however it appears to be frozen at the "I just broke the surface" stage. No fans are growing, just green cotyledons.
So, Stick around, Ask questions, I'll adjust my first post until I start getting more into growing what i've started.
All seeds were started October 30th, 2017. They are in my own mix of CoCo and Perlite (about 70/30) and i'm using some Emerald Harvest 3 part nutes.
Here's what they look like 23 days later.
