    First plant trimmed, jarred up and starting to cure.

    Definitely could have got a higher yield but not mad at it for my first ever harvest, and still have the other plant maturing. Just grew a couple Gorilla Glue autos for the first grow. The first plant's yield weighed in at 16.4 grams after trimming buds today and the second one should be just a little more than that after it dries. Going to be growing Tropicana Cherry photoperiods for next grow and am upgrading my setup to a 48"x48"x80" tent with 2 spider farmer sf2000's, an AC infinity cloudline system with climate monitor and ill be using FFOF in bottom half of pots with FFHF on top half. I also will be switching to top dressing with dry nutes as opposed to the FF trio I was using this time. FF trio seemed a little too hot. Anyway just wanted to show my first ever harvest post trimming. lol
    - 4'x4'x6.5' tent
    - 2 Cookiedawg, 2 Ice Cream Punch, all photoperiod, Sprouted Jan 25th
    - 5 gallon fabric pots raised about 1.5" for airflow and easy runoff cleanup
    - 2 spider farmer SF2000 at 85% 2ft over front plants much closer to back plants
    - Soil is FF Ocean Floor bottom 1/2 or so and top is FF Happy Frog
    - Water in veg was about 6.6PH and 78 degrees Fahrenheit, 6.3PH for flowering
    - RH usually around 50% Temp ranging from 78 Fahrenheit to 83 Fahrenheit
    - 6" Oscillating fan clipped to tent pole for air flow within tent
    - 6" carbon filter and fan for exhaust, 4" carbon filter and fan for intake​

    Congratulations Sleepy, pretty buds! Bet they will taste good in a few weeks

      Try to keep the RH at about 58% during the dry and cure and put Boveda a pack in each jar. I like the tiny humidity guages to so it's easy to monitor. Good Luck!

    We've all been there grow friend. It's kinda funny some people's first grow is pretty small, while other grow monsters. And vice-versa on their next grow. My fist indoor grow I was harvesting autos. My biggest yielded was over 7 oz off one bushy plant. Second grow I had a tiny harvest! Auto are assholes except for when they're not. Good luck!

        Very nice, especially for a first grow. By grow number four, you will be a truly good grower. Something I learned after my first grow is to keep a grow log. Nothing complicated, just the date and then what you did to each plant day to day. If you did nothing write nothing. The log is for you so that you so that it some plant issues comes up, you can easily look back and see what you did previously. This has helped me to prevent over feeding, watering and see whether how adjustments I made worked or didn't work or caused an issue.

          @ oldmangrower A grow log is a great idea. I use an app on my phone called 'Grow with Jane'. Free. Allows me to put in all the information and more then I would ever need. I'd recommend that to a new girl.
