Hello Gardeners and Farmers, I'm Shadowfax and together with my friend, Mr.R and his trolley, we're going to grow some cannabis for home consumption. I hope some nice folks here will follow my Diary and help me with my many questions and challenges on this my first grow.

August 8: paper towel/plate germination complete; planted my 4 for 4 germinated Northern Ligghts/Skunk from homegrownseeds. Same day placed in a mix of some of my home-made compost and FF Happy Frogs mix. and placed them in solo cups.

I am using an ViparSpectra XS 1000 light (120 watts) at about 45% power 16 inches over canopy--some nice guy on Youtube did the "par" levels on this light: he measured 16 inch off canopy 25 %=Par 158.6; 50 % Par 273 (said start of veg. which he gave as being in 270 to 300 Par range for smaller to teenage plants.) 75 % = Par 430 and 100% was Par 578 --and said that anything Par over 600 was good for flowering. He measured 100% and 12 inches over canopy Par at 863. He had a really fancy meter and seemed pretty knowledgeable--- I intend to use these numbers as a baseline. (If it matters, he measured in a 27 x 27 grow tent and not a 24 x 24 like I have--I'm thinking that may slightly impact Par values)

My first question, and the most important right now, is do my 3 day-old plants look leggy already? To me, a neb they day, but I also think they are newborn babies, and that it's okay at this time. Please advise.
Second, my temps seem to stay in the 77-80 degree range--too high? And my humdity in the 50-60% range--okay, or too dry?

The plants look pretty healthy. Have some gnats though. Will de take care of them? They don’t seem like they harm the plants though…
Light 16 inches above 100 %
When can I start lst or fertilizer?

Just added some earthworm castings to top.

Love checking on the girls. I mist them once or twice daily. That okay?


Curious, can I flip them to 12 12 now? If so what would happen? In terms of yield.

The 4th plant is outside in a three gallon bag and is so much less bushy.


Any tips appreciated

By the way, I have a bag of yeast and have been occasionally adding sugar and yeast and warm water in a cup and placing in tent— my thought is that it will increase co2 available to plants. Silly?
