I short vegged these and had only planned on two plants, I could just as easily gone with a single plant and filled the tub it would have just meant a longer veg and a much bigger pot. So many options in growin and I hope to try everything eventually
All in due time and it was merely a suggestion please take nothing to heart your knowledge to what pleases you is how the world turns my friend if that's what you know an works best for you don't change everything because some old head says so just a suggestion to open your mind a bit to easier ways of growing what's easy for me might not be easy for some but I've worked an tweaked my methods for years an have full proof outcomes every time except my first hydroponics grow it was a disaster though hydro is great I find it better suited for most vegetables and not cannabis too much water in the plant during flower leaves me with bud rot Everytime I've tried hydro though cucumbers tomatoes lettuce strawberry have thrived in my hydro experiments I say experiment cause that's what it really is aquaponics really isn't my thing either there's still the introduction of un natural fertilizer for water treatment and the ammonia from fish waste just doesn't sound good in my cannabis I keep it as natural as possible I know if I share my smoke there is nothing to be harmed I don't feel guilty for giving someone bud that has micro chemicals or micro plastics used to grow the plant left behind from using synthetic nutes

My hydro experiments were born from the desire to build me a pot growin machine usin water. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Got a butt load of airy Bubba Kush buds of pretty decent potency that have lasted me well over a year. Will I do it again? Probly one day since I have all the stuff. I have a lot of stuff collected and will be researchin the organic approach because by golly I wanna try that too. If only the weather here was more suitable for growin outside I wanna do that too. I gotta lotta wannas!

I suggest if you wanna grow outside throw 150 towards a high tunnel hoop house there light modular easy to put a heat light or oil heater in when temps drop black plastic can be used to control light for phenos and it helps hold that water in the ground as well mine has three windows on each side after I figure out to upload photos I'll send one figured it out don't know if they will show

Oops I replied to that twice all I have is a house garage I can't use a shed I had to build cause I couldn't use the garage an my little veggy garden already mulched up everything ready for next year I have tomatoes that came back from the tomatoes I mulched that I couldn't use or give away ones with the worm bites here or there or was just too lazy to pick but they will get chopped up again before winter and sit on top as my thermal barrier I could keep it above 65 with a heater if I wanted too but don't like having an extension cord running in the brittle winter snow not a good combo but all aside I grow some pretty good tomatoes for my 5th year run with tomatoes I grow other veggies you name it it's been in my garden but tomatoes are probably the easiest to grow for seasoned vets and the hardest to grow for newby gardeners I say that cause new people tend to forget to water or over water so I like maters cause there more of a challenge I think even more so than cannabis and I'm no season vet by any means when it comes to gardening though I have done allot of research like more than most grad students on Thier 4th year of college and still haven't mastered everything I blabber too much have fun good luck and God bless all

Haha yea it has its advantages livin here, I was social distancing long before it became fashionable. I appreciate any input good, bad, indifferent, funny, pics of dogs. I used to get hollered at by an admin all the time for sneakin guns into my pics I’ve learned to behave now. I consider myself an advanced noob and I am open to everything

People have whined oops I mean said that this part of the process seems painfully slow. After watchin the veg and early flower cycles with the pdq building of the structural stuff watchin the buds develop is like watchin water evaporate in a sauna. I don’t look at em every 45 seconds so I really notice the daily changes, little by little a much more complex process than makin stems and leaves is happenin. I gave a little squeeze on one and my fingers came back wet with resins, AWESOME! Ok so calm down and let the time tick by they are workin on it, and don’t do anything stupid
