Just wanted to update and get some feed back. I'm on my second grow ever. 3 Bruce Banner Autos (Front)
And 3 Gelato Auto (Back).

I have quickly learned that I suck from weeks 1 to week 4. On both my grows so far I have realized I can't seem to get my watering down. I thought that using a spray bottle to spray my solo cups was the way to go, but clearly I was wrong. Regardless, I feel that once I get into about week 5 I start feeling more confident in what I'm doing (Still brand new to all of this)
I'm on day 47 since seeds, 2 days in wet paper towels, about 3 weeks in solo cups and then Transplanted into 3 gallon mesh pots. I have followed my previous grow journal to the T (since I was very happy with my end results). I specifically wanted smaller/shorter/bushier plants. I started some LST on around day 30, added the SCROG last week.
My first grow I went about 55 days with a cheap Bloomspect 1200Watt, dual switch (Veg and bloom) until I introduced my Mars Hydro TSL2000. This grow I only ran the Mars Hydro since day 1 and JUST today I added the Bloomspect back but can only run the bloom(red light) switch or else my Temps get above 90° Fahrenheit.
Lastly on my last grow I Topped all my plants on day 29 and can already tell i have a smaller canopy then before BUT my Buds look bigger to-date vs my last grow on day 47. I haven't defoliated as much either.
This is my last grow of autos 100 percent as we will finally be in our new home in 2 months (I've been on time constraints while we are buying our home hence doing autos). I'll attach my current grow journal if anyone is bored lol. I'll take any good or bad criticism as I only want to get better at this. There are SO many variables that can be adjusted and just when I think I kind of have it down I'm trying out a new strain and can tell that variables need to be adjusted accordingly. We'll if I can get 9+ ounces again of dank herb like I did the first time I'll be very happy.
Thank You all that are always so helpful.
Blessings
