Just joined. I heard about this on a podcast so I figure it’s vetted and I’m hoping to learn, learn, Learn and grow.
These plants were started indoors last week of August 2023. Soil is compost that I’ve made from my garden, my yard and food. Contains grass clippings, old veggies plants, compostable food waste, and worms. The compost as a whole is 1.5 yrs old. I turn it use the black good soil for planting and leave the rest. I use city water that sits for at least 48hrs before watering. Lights are LCD. five panels at 200w each and three bulbs around the same maybe a bit less. I have a small fan to circulate air and a heater since I’m in NE and it’s becoming winter.
I posted some of the pictures as close ups because there are some deficiencies or extras. I noticed some crinkling on the leaves in the one plant so I transplanted, hoping to get the space it needs. 3gal - 5 gal.
I switched lights to 12/12 three weeks ago because two of the plants are seeds that came from a lb I got with some regular. Only females have come from all those seeds. Interestingly enough last grow had 4 plants all outdoor. Three indica/saliva hybrid and one ruderalis. I thought that was strange. This time I ran two seeds from a seed bank and two more from that last batch where I got the first seeds. Once I switch the lights only two plants are flowering. I’m assuming the ones that aren’t are autos. I made the mistake and didn’t label. I won’t do that again.
As I’m very new to this, I want to answer any questions needed to get better advice and make changes to get better yield. Money is super tight. I also haven’t used any nutritional supplements other than the composted soil. I’m sure I’m missing tons of information so ask away or advise away. It’s all appreciated and accepted. Much love! Looking forward to the support.
