    Well Now it has been one month and one week. I plan on being in veg stage for a full two months before I flip the switch. I also bought some clear plastic pot saucers and went with the drip method for watering and I really like it. BUT I did buy 12 inch ones and they barley fit lol It's all that Walmart/Lowes/Home Depot has so I had to go online to buy some. I picked up 17 inch ones and they should be here any day. Found them in a nice place and they have a nice deal that you get $10 off your first order so I bought 5 for only for the price of one lol


      Well its now been two months of veg. (just about) They got to the height that I felt comfortable with. Today is the first day of the 12-12 cycle. I'm getting excited, this is my first time ever growing ANYTHING at all lol. Here's some pics!

      When would be a good time to start the next set of plants?

        Check out the link above for when to start your next set of plants.
        I started my next set about 6 weeks before the harvest of my current grow. I have a CFL grow cabinet that I hope will take them to 6 weeks without running out of room. I'm going to make a 3rd grow site "Large Closet". I'll either use T5's or more than likely buy a Vipraspectra 300w dimmable for the closet grow.
        Good luck with your 1st grow, your off to a great start.

      Hey I just threw mine into 12/12 last Tuesday there close to day 1 flower but not yet. Looking very good beautiful looking ladies you got there nice green growth I love it. Mine are stretching over and inch a day I say stretching but there not there growing with the tightest node formation I have ever seen. Only about 1/8 of an inch between on the indicas and about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch between the nodes on Sativa if it keeps up like this we have good things to come.


        Well it's been a month now since my last update. I have a few questions now. I've been feeding my plants the way the General Organic box of nutrients has been telling me to put in the water. For week 7 they call it mid bloom and to repeat for extra weeks of blooming. Well I've repeated this for about 2 weeks now. When would be a good time to start the moving on to week 8-10? Also after looking at the new pics when would be a good time to start growing another plant? I started off with 5 because I want to build my reserve (I really don't know how much I'm going to get from them as well) I just want to be able to grow enough so that I never run out. Anyway here are some pic! Remember this is my first time growing anything so after looking at the pics, some pointers on what I can do better would be grateful! If anyone is wondering I used bamboo pols as the post (real ones) and hemp string to tie up the plants (other than the lone zip tie lol)


          If you have two grow areas I would start germination of the next batch when the 5 you are growing reach 8 weeks. I did mine at 6 weeks and 8 would have worked out better.
