    Hi everyone, I'm brand new to growing and this website has helped me out immensely, so thanks, especially to the site owner and author(s) of the articles.

    I'm currently 3 weeks and 2 days into veg and I feel like everything is going great and like I don't know anything at the same time. LOL. I'm growing in a 4x8x6 tent (low ceiling) in a cold, dry basement. The conditions in the tent seem to be doing pretty well.

    I'm using two 1000w HPS/MH lights turned down to 600w, with 400w (equivalent) LEDs on either end and in the middle. The lights are able to keep the tent warm and I have my carbon filter/exhaust set up with an awesome controller I found on Amazon to turn on when the temp gets above 78 and a heater turns on if it gets below 77 so it stays pretty even in there. It works out well with that controller because neither the heater or exhaust is running constantly, which helps with electricity. The humidity sits at around 40-50%.

    I'm using Fox Farms Ocean Forest and the girls are in 7 gallon smart pots now. I'm feeding them with the Fox Farms trio and CALiMAGic mixed in RO water.

    We're growing all Nirvana feminized seeds. 2 Blue Mystic, 2 Pure Power Plant and 4 freebies of unknown strain (I wish they'd label the freebies)

    I topped them all and I'm trying different LST on 2 of the plants. I'll probably have to do more later as I run out of ceiling.

    I'm not sure what other information I can give on the grow, so please ask if you have any questions and by all means feedback is appreciated.

    The irony in all of this is that I won't be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor, due to my employer. However, my wife has her medical card and we decided to do this to save money by avoiding the dispensary and.... because it's fun!


    Sorry if if this post is too long. Pics of the plants as they sit an hour ago or so.

      Hi Marley,

      Those are some beautiful plants! I do have a couple of questions for you. When did you start fertilizing with the FF trio? And what is the controller you found on Amazon? I am in my first grow also and it's been very instructive.

          Hey BookReader,

          this is the controller im using (hopefully the admin is okay with me posting this link. I'm not affiliated with them whatsoever). https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01KM..._B01KEYDNKK_bi

          my biggest issue when I first started was keeping my tent warm enough because I had my exhaust running non stop and I was using a terrarium thermostat to control my heater, which was pretty much in all the time too trying to keep up with all the warm air the exhaust was extracting. The controller above completely solved the problem and the temps are super stable. Almost a constant 78F, whereas before it ranged from 70-81F.

          I started using the FF nutrients at the second week of veg.

          Hope that helps!

              Here's a couple of pics of the setup. Also pictured is a 4x4 tent I didn't mention in my first post. This is where the seeds started and the plants stayed until about a week into veg. It will also be used for clones and keeping mothers. Currently it's being occupied by a bunch of plants my wife started in preparation for our spring outdoor garden.

              the lights consist of two 4 foot, 6 bulb T5's and two 150w CFL's for seedlings/clones.

                3 days away from flipping the switch to flower. I did some pruning after the last pictures I posted, as well as the constant tucking and moving things around. They seem to be doing well so far.

                Here's the 8 ladies as they sit now.

                  Those are some nice looking bushes, I'm vegging one looking similar under a t5 called Black Dog. If you don't mind my asking what strain are you running? Yes GWE is awesome stoked to be a part of this.

                  All are from Nirvana seeds. 2 are Pure Power Plant, 2 are Blue Mystic and the other 4 were unlabeled freebies they sent, so I have no idea what they are, but 2 are very sativa dominant and 1 is very indica dominant. That's about all I know at this point.

                Oh and I took a some clones 2 days ago. Hopefully they survive. This is my first attempt cloning and my wife used up all of my rapid rooters on her veg seeds. 😫 I did use Clonex and Mykos, but had to put them in dirt.

                    cc I give my mother plant clonex for at least 2 watering s then I take my clones, the success rate is much higher if they have the clone hormone already in there system

                  Day 1 of flower. Changed to HPS bulbs and turned them up to 750w, lowered the temperature to 75, did a bit of defoliation and flushed them. That's a lot of changes in a day so I expect they'll need a while to recover.

                    Day 4 of flower.

                    The plants are growing fine and seemed to have felt naked after the defoliation I gave them because they filled all the open space with more fan leaves.

                    I turned the lights up to 1000w and raised them a little. Heat doesn't seem to be an issue yet as the temps are holding at 75F with them on. We'll see how long that lasts as the outside temps get warmer, but it should help that I'm growing in the basement.

                    1 plant seems to have a bit of a calcium deficiency but I think I caught it early as only 2 leaves were showing signs. It's ironic because I was wondering if I should be giving them a bit more CALMAG than I was and the plants answered me right away. I watered them today for the first time since I noticed the deficiency with more CALMAG than usual so we'll see how she responds.
