Hello all N00b grower in training here!

after binge watching Mr. Canucks for a month now I finally broken down and have decided to grow.

I have a 2 x 4 tent three mars Hydro TS 1000 grow lights (Will only be using 2). After some small research and watching hundreds of hours of YouTube I have decided to go with organic dry amendments, I currently have down to earth 444 vegetable garden, 731 that guano, 484 rose and flower mix, plants success organics granular Mycorrhizae 312, Real growers recharge microbial super pack, worm gold plus hear worm castings plus kelp and rock dust and
Mother earth Coco 70/30 perlite mix.

I have a Trans-Siberian auto, French macaroons, and a Golosa.

I’ve germinated successfully with Half a tablespoon down to earth 444 and 333.
from my knowledge they look pretty healthy (I started germination January 29)

my question is what nutrient blend and feeding schedule do you guys suggest I have been Phing my RO water to 6 to 6.5. Before a transplant is there any dry amendments you guys would recommend by down to earth or any other brand to pair with what I have. I know I’m going to be needing some calcium and magnesium as well.

Also I am a bit afraid of getting critters in the tent the guy I purchased it from said he had a bit of a bug problem but I thoroughly cleaned it with vinegar rubbing alcohol and bleach. But are there any things that I need to prevent any future bug problem.

i’d also like to know what kind of compost tea blend you guys suggest.

Drop some knowledge for me thank you.

I would get some BTi in some form. Mosquito dunk being most available. I use a higher concentrate but same thing really.
Water it in to kill larvae from fungus gnats. Grab some spinosad as well and perhaps some yellow sticky traps, you may also want to learn up on making an insecticidal soap. None of this is required but it will save you time money and heartache

If your using organics you should just buy oyster shell flower and mix it with your all purpose according to instruction but be sure that the dte doesn’t have calcium or magnesium in it already. If it does I think it would be fine to not use it. Also just make sure your mediums ph stay in the correct range and you should be fine.

Also you can use lift the pot method for watering but don’t let it get feather light. Just water when you notice it’s lighter but don’t let it dry out either. Lol
