Yup, this is my virgin online grow journal. New to the site, but not to gardening. Figured I would share my setup, thoughts, etc and maybe get some useful feedback. So far, what I am doing has worked for me, but who knows, there are always other ways to skin a cat lol
Ok, so, for starters, jumped back into the growing foray a little late this year, but better late than never, right? I grew back in college (guerilla grows for personal), and did ok, then I did some indoor growing maybe 10 years ago and did ok, but it was always bag seed. This go-round, I figured I would pony up for some good seed, and well, that’s where my story begins I guess…
Decided to order seeds online, did a bit of research on who would ship to me, etc etc, thought I had done enough research, and wanting to keep within a budget, and not wanting 10 seeds ea of any variety (just gimme 3 and I’ll be happy), it took a bit of searching to find seed banks with lower quantities. Of course… “He who has the biggest marketing, wins”. And I placed an order thru Pacific Seed Bank in April.
3 pack of seeds each, for : Alaskan Thunderfuck, Sour Diesel, White Widow, Purple Kush, (all photos) and Jack Herer (autoflowers). It took maybe two weeks to get them, but I had all but one germinated by May 18 (trusty soak and into a paper towel in a baggie on top of the router method lol), and they were put into soil then.
They all germninated except one Alaskan Thunderfuck between 5/18 - 5/19, and were planted into starter cups.
By June 1st we had these little ones…
And by June 25th they had grown a little:
(Back row) Sour Diesel, Alaskan Thunderfuck, White Widow (front right) Purple Kush. The little guys (Blueberry, Alaskan Purple and Pineapple Express II came from Seedsman and were planted mid June). These are supposed to become moms… (1 of each)
I also put the other 2 of each outside. BOY did they stretch (12 noon until 7pm direct sun, dappled shade in the am).
Also put the 3 Jack Herer Autos in my veggie garden at the same time:
Had to do a little re-arranging in my grow area last night, moving a few tents around before the girls get too big. The back row is the PSB plants from above, and the front two rows are from Seedsman (2 ea blueberry, alaskan purple, pineapple express II, black cream, blackberry). The blackberry and black creams are autos.
Funny looking plant for 18/6 if its a photoperiod Sour Diesel. HMM. Perhaps its NOT???
Need to finish up my little “space adjustment”, then I’ll snap pics of the girls all in their new homes…
