    Schwer's First Grow Evah! Planning, Prep and Grow

    Ha, thanks HeathenFarmer. You know, having too much bud will be a nice problem to have for once. I look forward to making gift packages for friends 😁 I'm not 100% settled on genetics and have some time to think about it between now and mid June when I plan to start the grow. Any suggestions?

    The ventilation equipment arrived today so I had some fun putting that together along with the lights. Good times! I was not prepared for how bright those LED are. I mean damn. I may have temporarily blinded my wife because she was looking in the tent when I accidently turned them on. Sorry...

    Coast Of Maine Supplemental Feeding Schedule With Stonington Blend Plant Food For Autoflower

    I find it interesting that your chart differs from the one I'm currently seeing on the back of the bag. 🤔

    Thanks again for the replies Sparky and dire wolf. Super helpful. The Gorilla 4x4 arrived today and I had it up a half hour later 😅. I was able to do the full set up on my own without too much trouble thanks to a few handy velcro attachments. The only hard part was getting the top on, but...

    Damn dire wolf, thanks so much for all the info! Regarding pests, just last night I happened to watch a video where a guy's soil was PACKED with soil mites and little worms. It was absolutely horrifying! Like horror movie material under a microscope. Apparently those particular critters...

    Hell, I wouldn't have even thought about the lights on a humidifier or dehumidifier. Thanks. It will be interesting to see what I'll be able to get away with in this room with the central A/C. I would expect it to be on the dry side even in VA's summer, but I guess we'll see...

    I'm not 100% sure about the legality of growing outdoors in Virginia with this new measure in place, but the law does require that grows "aren’t visible from a public street and precautions are taken to prevent unauthorized access by minors." Sadly it doesn't really matter in my case because my...

    I still more questions than answers, but man I've learned a lot in the past several days. But okay okay, I think I'm finally ready to accept that I may be biting off more than I can chew for this first grow by trying to go with my original choice of 2x Strawberry Cough and 2x Blueberry Kush...

    I did a little scouting today and all of the items listed above are available a couple miles up the road with the exception of the CoM Stonington Blend. I did manage to find the Stonington at the other nursery in town so that remains a viable local option too. Any thoughts on using the...

    Tentative Soil Mix Plan The base mix I’m considering in split thirds of peat moss, EWC, and perlite for water retention, nutrient availability and drainage respectively. Here are brands I know I can get in my area. You may see a lot of Coast of Maine stuff, but that's mostly because I know the...

    Tossed together a little comparison I found of the two in ilgm.com. Looks like the timing works with the biggest issues being the tall vs compact. Hopefully that could be mitigated by SCROG and giving the Strawberry Cough a bit more floor space? Or am I just setting myself up to be a bad father?

    Thanks guys! Yeah, about that Blackberry. I was looking at seeds last night and it seem like Blackberry Kush autos are the only seeds available. Are they only autos? I have no idea. I have my heart set on doing a photo run for my first time out so the Blackberry might have to wait for another...

    To not be taken so seriously. Well, not that part anyway. My grow, that's will be super serious but I'm more questions than answers right now. Still figuring that part out.

    Hi friends, Now that home cultivation is legal in VA (come July 2021) I can start planning for my new favorite hobby. I mean okay, not gonna lie. I’ve been planning this for months but my wife didn’t want me to make any purchases until we knew for sure which way the wind was blowing, and now we...

    Newbie from VA! Woo hoo!

    Yeah, still 2024 for retail distribution but I wouldn't be surprised if some of those donation-only delivery services cropped up like they have in DC. Not sure how VA would react to that kind of operation but I guess we'll find out! We'll try to find some way to make your walk through the woods...

    Newbie from VA! Woo hoo!

    Ha, honestly if I didn't have some long-ish vacations planned in May and June I would. Also, knowing what the hell I'm doing should probably take some precedence. Not at all, my friend. As the title implies this is a much an introduction as it is a celebration. So happy for VA!

    Virginia: Legalization of Adult Use and Home Cultivation effective July 2021

    Newbie from VA! Woo hoo!

    Half way there 👍 "Virginia delegates have signed off on a proposal from Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to legalize marijuana statewide this summer instead of waiting until 2024. Senators were still debating but expected to vote later Wednesday afternoon."
