Hi everybody this is my first grow ever in my life Learned a lot from reading on here in just a day. How is she looking?
the lime is your ph buffer, so get your mix right.OK cool… That’s When I was planning on doing it. Don’t see any roots coming out of the bottom yet. What type of food do you recommend? I was planning on going with the Fox Farm trio starting at 25% potency. Do I need to add nutes right away I read the soil is good for 3 to 4 weeks. Will be adding 25% perlite and dolomite lime to the mix am I missing anything.
Go real easy on the n with ocean forest. Lots of people burning up plants with it trying to feed too much because it has available nutes in it already. I’d wait for her to ask for food if it were me. Also i had thought it had oyster shells in it to do the same as lime and dolomite but I can’t find that now

The light is a eBay/Amazon VA 600what gnick said, wait till it is a bit dry (like not sawdust that falls off the root ball! lol) and it will love it! in a few days you will see her wanting out of there! lol. you will know.
keep up the good work and youre on your way! she does look nice and perky and a good green.
if you have the time, watch her for a while and lower the light about one inch or dial up the intensity just a bit and see if she points her leaves up, not straight up, just a little up. you will see what i mean, it takes a little while, but not so long. if you have the time to watch you can dial the light in just right! too close and she will say so, the tips will curl under or the leaves lighten up or they point up too much... but it is a lot of fun just to see the changes and the way they respond.
is it the purple light? or the p series? they have a few 600w ones. i use viparspectra and they work well. as a matter of fact i just got a couple more during the sale, ive gone a bit light crazy, lol.
keep the thread going with more pics as she grows and grows!
what strain is she? are you set to see her through? think about what you will need to provide a 12 hour dark period if she is photo. read up on topping and lst (low stress training) so you can decide if you want to do that. you will have a few weeks to study on what will happen. you can look at grow diaries to see what other plants look like along the way.
you might want to look into a few threads that are stickied here, like the watering one and the ph one and ... well there are too many good ones to note them all.
i guess what i am saying is, she looks good and ive found that reading and watching helps pass the time so you dont over mother! lol
