    Here is some "Bud Porn" as @Xena calls it, plus an excerpt from my Journal.

    Hey GWE Forum,

    As promised I am starting to share my grow journal today along with some pics of progress so far. I'm just now about 8 weeks from sprout and planning to switch to 12/12 in about 2 weeks.

    Dec 2020
    This will be my first indoor grow. After much research into current methods and the latest equipment availaqble for sale online I developed a plan to follow for this. My appreciation to Nebula Haze of Grow Weed Easy for the information on that site. Also to Robert Bergman of I Love Growing Marijuana ILGM for the seeds from Amsterdam.

    I chose the Critical Mass feminized strain for this grow due to the medium high content of THC and CBD. I ordered 10 seeds for $114 and received 10 additional seeds free for a total of 20. For this first try I will start 3 to see how it goes.

    I'm using a food dehydrator as a heating source with a pie tin full of water for humidity. I monitored this set up for a couple days and was able to set temp at about 80 degrees and RH at 60%.

    Medium: Mother Earth Coco Coir 70% with Perlite 30% mix. I flushed the medium thoroughly with pHed water and let it drain overnight. I will plant directly into the coco mix in Solo cups.

    I purchased a Bloomspect SS1000 LED light and suspended it 18 inches above the cups.

    As my budjet is limited, I decided to build my own DIY grow cabinet 30x48x62 out of OSB sheathing which I had on hand from another project. I have hobby cabinet making skills. I bought mylar space blankets from Amazon and lined the inside using spray on contact cement.Note: If you try this, I recommend 2 people to stretch the mylar or you will get a lot of wrinkles. A space blanket is larger that a 4x8 sheet of material so just trim the excess after the cement dries. A few wrinkles is no big deal. I think the mylar is more reflective than the inside of a grow tent. I covered all 3 sides, the door and top and bottom.

    Sunday Dec 13, 2020 6:00am
    Planted 3 seeds in 3 Solo cups. Made a hole in the coco about 3/4 inch deep and dropped the seeds in then covered with fine crushed Perlite. I plan to keep the surface damp with a spray mister and water once a day using a pipette about an inch away from the seeds in a circle.

    It's a girl! First sprout. Soil temp is running a little high so I made some adjustments.

    Wednesday Dec 16, 2020 10am
    Second sprout. Already see tiny first true serrated leaves on first plant. Watered both with a light mix of CaliMagic and some Recharge root microbes.

    Thursday Dec 17, 2020 5am
    Third seed died just as it broke the surface. Damped off just below the cotyledon leaves. I think the soil was a little to dry at the temp I'm running. I dug down and removed a 1 inch long taproot. I decided to replant so I stirred the soil but this time I put the seed in a shot glass with distilled water to soak for 24 hours before I plant it. It will be a few days behind the other 2 but I doubt that will matter.

    Friday Dec 18, 2020 7pm
    Planted 3rd seed again after a 38 hour soak in distilled water. The first 2 seem to have slowed in growth. Watered them to very moist with pH adjusted filtered tap water. Soil temp is at a constant 78 degrees. I have a small fan going to keep temo down. My grow cabinet is almost completed now and I ordered some 5 gal cloth grow bags today which should arrive by next Wednesday. I expect to transplant a week after that. I also ordered a reptile tank fogger/humidifier and a controller which arrived yesterday and as it is cold out now I will use a small ceramic heater in the cabinet which is out in my unheated sun room. I will run it for a few days to get the temp and humidity regulated before transplant to the bigger bags.

    Tuesday Dec 22, 2020 4:30am
    Replanted seed sprouted overnight. Exactly a week after the first 2. Happy Birthday Connie! I decided to give the girls names in order of their sprouting. Annie, Betty and Connie. Carrie damped off and died.

    Today is the start of week 2 for Annie and Betty. They don't appear to be growing quite as fast as I expected and the leaves are a little on the pale side. I think they are hungry! I am mixing GWE week 1 of GH Flora Series plus CaliMagic for them. Using filtered and pHed tap water which needs to be adjusted down as it is about 7.5 to 8 from the tap.

    OK, before everyone gets too bored with this, I will stop for now and continue with more later unless you are all sick of it already. I hope you enjoy my "Bud Porn", LMAO!

      Would love to see your XXX Bud Porn FarmBuck. I read your grow journal today, very ambitious! We're just about the same timeline on our current grows but our methods differ a little. I'm really in to the manifold process as it works so well in limited space. With a grow room your size, you have no limits on space and can experiment a lot. I had a similar problem to your yellowing and brown spots and determined it to be a manganese difficiantcy As I'm in coco, I'm using strictly GH Flora Trio and the recommendation was a strong nutrient flush and reducing my pH level to 5.5. My plant recovered quickly. I'll be following your grow!

      I'll will follow you for sure... Curious to see your project till the end. Remember I'm old school when it comes to landraces, my prefer breeder is Ace Seeds and I'm not the only one who grow their strains here and beside you are never to old to learn new growing techniques. Sure I'll be happy to show my type of porn, voila a taste of one of my girls.

      Well I'm wishing you well till the end cuz nothing is better than your growing own.
