Hi all!
I just started growing Lemon Haze seedlings in May.
On May 16th, I was given a dozen feminized seedlings (as a surprise so I wasn’t expecting to grow). Today, June 9th, there’s 9 left but only two are in good shape.
I am currently struggling to learn as I go (grow). I have been turning to a lot of online forums for help and I appreciate any and all advice.
Reading some threads get confusing with the lingo and abbreviations. To help me better understand, could anyone post some common lingo/terms/abbreviations used in the growing community and what they mean to help me better understand?

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to interacting with this new community.

Check out this link:


But more importantly, post a pic of your setup and your plants and the brainiacs here will help you out.

Welcome aboard

Here is my smaller setup- a 4’x2’ grow tent with spider farmer sf-2000 lights set to 70% (I just moved my plants from a GE 30W bulb yesterday).
I plant in fox farm potting soil and have their fertilizers too. I also put some earthworm castings in my soil mix. The black plastic pots are 13inches and the one fabric one is 7gal sitting in a milk crate. I have put “greenhouse shelving” on the floor of the tent to keep the plants elevated.

I did that with my carbon filter originally as well but had to move it and raise the light all the way to the top once the plants got happy. 😕

I’m hoping my plants get happy! I don’t mind moving it. I just set this up yesterday and will definitely need to make adjustments as I learn and they grow

Looks good broham.

Your height is going to be an issue, I would move the carbon filter to the side so you can get your light all the way at the top. You are probably going to need to do some low stress training and super cropping to keep the plants out of the light.

Edit: Braniac beat me to it.

I did buy netting to try SCROG method. The ceilings in my basement are 70inches and it’s made finding a grow tent above 60in difficult

In a pinch you could use this:


and some duct tape to make a room that is exactly the max size you can possibly get. If the tent turns out to be too small.

Unless you get a bigger tent you should try autoflower plants in the future grows. They typically don’t grow tall, but they can get pretty bushy. You might have better success with those in that environment. Good luck. Enjoy the hobby.

Thanks for the advice! I wasn’t even planning on trying to grow any time soon but was given seedlings by a neighbor as a gift. I’ve been rolling with them since but in less than a month, could only come up with so much budget

Got to work with what you got, and it’s why I recommend auto flowers for next grow in that size tent.
