I have never really done anything but a half-assed grow diary here on OG. Typically I lose interest, and fail to document as fully as I should for a proper diary. I am going to try and do better, my motivation is to show that many new growers really over think the process of home growing bodacious buds.
I have been growing for a while now, and over these years I have been simplifying and downsizing my ganja grows, partly because I primarily now grow only for my consumption. Yield is not a concern, quality and diversity are more important to me.
I just started a grow away from my plant headquarters. So, it will be small and simple.
I need to keep it all indoors and stealthy. I also want to harvest by late Feb ‘22.
I only soak seeds or use paper towels if the seeds are older, or if I suspect other viability problems.
I put the seeds directly in the moist medium. All regular photos.
I started 4 KaliBubba (Serious Seeds), 6 Silver Mountain (courtesy of @twistedinfinity ), 6 Cindy 99 mix (FDM Seeds), 3 Super Lemon Haze x Jesus OG (by way of @Scissor-Hanz)
The KB were started on Nov 4, all others on the 6th of Nov.
Ha ha, I certainly don’t have room for 19 plants, so I will be selecting what I think are the most desirable ones… I hope to end up with 5 to 6 girls max. I am using a 2 x 4 tent.
I germinated some in teeny tiny styro egg cartons, others in 8 oz styro cups. JiffyMix Seed Starter for the tiny egg cartons, PromMix HP in the 8 oz cups.
24 hours of light with a Viparspectra XS2000 LED. I have a 315W CMH sorta as backup because it runs hotter than the LED. I have a 4” fan installed which works OK for the LED.
I also have a 6” fan which I may install later on if I want to use the CMH.
1½ gallon containers for final transplant.
Jack’s Classic Citrus FeED-- only nutrients, start to finish.
Today I transplanted most of the wee seedlings from the egg containers to 16 to 20 oz styrofoam cups.
I will make a stronger effort to keep this grow documented better than my previous feeble efforts.
Pictures to follow.
