Yeah, my goal is in any living situation to at least have a "hobby," room to be able to grow in. A Garage would be very difficult in Arizona unless it was temperature controlled and insulated and all that shizz. But yeah, I would even turn my living room, into a bedroom to help facilitate my Grow hobby haha.

A lot depends on whether or not I kick this current slutbag to the curb or not. She is the mother of my son but she's got some issues. Our lease isnt up until the end of summer so I have some time to figure out wtf is going on I suppose.... and start saving money for my down payment lol

It is looking more and more like I will end up renting a 1 bedroom apartment somewhere cheap and turning the bedroom into my grow room and the living room into my bedroom

Im loosing patience with her.

no.. and your fine, hopefully around the 5th week we’ll be able to tell you, the earliest.,
they are only in veg if you really needed to which you don’t yet, you can put one just outside the tent..
i don’t think i’ve ever had my tent completely closed for any grow, though dark time is completely dark..

I had/ am having the same issue. I am down to 4 plants in my tent and right now I am thinking that is the absolute MAX I would ever do in a 3x3 again. Depending on how the next 2 months of Flower go, I could change my mind but I think 2 plants would have easier/better for my 1st grow.... I would have benefited from the extra room to work.

Your plants look good though. I would say flip to 12/12 in about a week.

Thats what I am thinking as well, I just received my autoflower seeds today and after a convo with one of my close friends. I believe ill only do two plants per grow in this 3x3 as well. I can experiment more with LST, Topping, and FIM.

I landed on 8pm-8am as my Light ON hours.... a little funky but it helps with energy costs and easier to keep cool at night in Arizona.

I should have done more like 12am-12pm but oh well. I will learn the hard way. I will likely have to start getting up at like 4am every day that I work in order to tend the plants before heading out to work. The not-so significant other isnt a big fan of me working in the Tent and running the Wet Vac at 9pm, which I understand.

Well hopefully soon you wont have to deal with her. Yeah, 4am wont be bad.. youll get used to it, im up at that time every day, ha. I personally need to come up with a plan myself, my office is in the same room as my tent... and then i need to take time in the AM to water them or give nutrients in the beginning of the day since i work 730-4 but im at the gym at 5 am.

Yeah, I am sure I will get used to it. Those 4 days will just be LONG days. I work 7am-7pm, 4 days a week. BUT 3 days off in a row is nice

What do you do for work? Sounds like medical field?

Social Work. I work with people who are chronically homeless, usually with severe physical or mental health issues, and try to get them into long-term/ permanent supportive housing.

Oh I definitely have some clients who make me earn my paycheck, that is for damn sure (and we make poop). But the ones who are actually grateful for your help make it all worth while.
