New grower here on his second attempt. It's been a treat. Mr. Cannucks along with debilitating PTSD and manic depression related to my time in were my main motivations. I haven't had many issues in this grow, but using youtube, this forum, and google I've been able to overcome everything thus far. The plants are growing like... well... weeds.

Thanks for helping me get this far.

Welcome to the farm.
I was going to say you should be watering outside the plant around the edge of pot /bag.
Roots grow into moist mediums, so to encourage root growth water around plant, not on plant so to speak .
Nice looking plants .

Looking great. Welcome to the forum.

Is that coco and perlite?

Not trying to be nitpicky, but are you watering just around the stalks?
The plant is top dressed with volcanic tuff which is why it looks weird. I used 40/30/30 coco/perlite/worm castings.

Edit: Here are some baby photos :-P

Nice looking plants, sir.
Are those fabric pots from AC Infinity? I just ordered a 5-pack of them for my next grow of Frosted Altoids.

yes among many other ingredients.
Yeah mr.Cannucks got a good grasp on amending coco and while I recommend against it for other reasons (mainly you can get much faster growth and it changes watering habits) he does it very well

One of the benefits of growing this way is not caring too much about pH. I do not pH anything even when I add cal-mag, molasses, yucca etc. weekly. I believe one or 2 of the ingredients I used act as some type of pH neutralizer that keeps everything at a steady 6.5 pH. The plants love it in this medium. All I do is water every 2-3 days.
