Hi there,
I join you towards the end of my second indoor grow. These plants were germinated from bagseed on the 26th of July. It's been 4 weeks since I flipped to 12/12.
This is my second grow indoors.
The first grow in the tent was 2 monstercropped clones from my first outdoor grow. They took ages to re-veg and didn't turn out very well because I used hardware store potting mix. Lesson learned.
Anyway, I got some decent soil (living soil from easyasorganics), and some coco perlite and nutrients,
Calmag,
Coco a&b,
Fulvic acid,
Flavor savior,
Bud burst,
Crystalic,
Guano,
PK heavy,
Dyna-gro bloom
And some other hardware store fertiliser.
I got pH up, pH down, and a digital meter to read the pH and EC values.
My tent is 3x3 feet, and my light (a gift) is a 100w cob.
My ventilation consists of 2 pc fans and a homemade extractor fan, made from a car heater blower. It's a bit noisy but it works well.
The temperature is around 20°c most of the time, but it has been as low as 15°, not ideal I know, but it's not all the time.
Humidity is 50-60% most of the time, it has been in the 70's, and I'm acutely aware of bud rot, so I try to keep it in the sweet spot.
I have 5 plants in the tent (too many for 100w, another lesson learned for next time lol)
One plant is in soil, around 2 gallons or about 7 litres. 2 plants are in the same size pot, but using coco perlite. 1 is in a 1 ltr pot (coco perlite) and 1 is in a fabric supermarket bag with around 20-25 ltrs of coco perlite.
I use a combination of training techniques, topping, lst, supercropping etc. I'm hard on them, but I keep them as healthy as possible while I'm doing it.
I'm still learning and seeing how things work out with different substrates and training methods etc.
Currently I'm setting my nutrients pH levels between 5.5-6.2, aiming for 5.8 but letting it drift so nutrients can be absorbed.
I'm aiming for EC values around 2.2 at the moment.
I give the soil plant water only, or water and guano, or flavor savior (organic), no salt based ferts.
Anyway,
I've been babbling on enough for now, so here's some pics.

I've also got an outdoor girl and a bunch of clones.
The outdoor plant is in around 30 ltrs of living soil. The pot is a washing basket with a fabric supermarket bag inside. It's 15 inches high and 15 wide. I added straw mulch, around 3 inches.
It's early spring here, so we've had a few cold nights, as low as 9°c, and she's doing ok apart from some insect damage so I sprinkled diatomaceous earth around the pot and on the mulch. Seems to have worked.
The clones are 6 in coco perlite and 5 in soil. I plan to run a sea of green with some and put some outside, haven't decided yet.

Today's nutrients for the coco plants is EC 2.2, pH 5.8, and temperature of 21.9°c
I make up 5ltrs at a time, the water I'm using is pH 6.4, EC 0.0, and these are the nutrients I'm using in 5ltrs of water,

Coco a&b 12.5 ml
Fulvic acid 2.5 ml
Calmag 7 ml
Bud burst 15 ml
Flavor savior 15 ml
Crystalic 10 ml
Guano 20 ml

I gave them a dose of PK heavy a few days ago and I'll give them another dose in a week or two.

Looks healthy👊
some nice pics.
what’s the light source? Wall wattage?

Thanks,
My light is a luma 400. It's a cob led with twin bulbs and it's passively cooled (no fans).
It draws 108w from the wall at 100%
It's realize it's not enough light for the size of the tent but for now I'm working with what I have.

Ya. It’s enough light to make the plant healthy, node spacing would be better with more light, and buds won’t build to potential.
nice job regardless.

Yeah, I'm learning all the time. It might be my veg light in future, once I upgrade to a dedicated flowering light. I'm thinking of the hlg 100 rspec or similar. I live off grid and use solar power so every watt counts. If power wasn't an issue, I'd probably go for 300-400w led. My jars are empty and it's around $20 per gram here and hard to find decent stuff, so a couple of oz's to me is like winning the lottery lol.

I’m with you on limiting power use. Have found with led 30-60watts/sqft required for good results. 20$/gram???! You must be seriously remote.

I'll get there sooner or later. I need more panels, bigger inverter, more batteries etc. That's all before I can upgrade the light.
I'd probably get a better deal than $20 a gram if I knew the right people.
Remote? Yes, I live in rural NZ, so we have ideal growing conditions outdoors in summer, but it's frowned upon by our government. Hence the reason I moved my growing indoors. I still have the occasional stealth grow outside though. Can't beat real sunlight.

The sun is the best resource. ☀️
I've come to really prefer my indoor controlled environment cannabis better tho.
I know what you mean, I'm enjoying the indoor growing too, I'm sure I'd be liking it better if I could manipulate my indoor environment properly, that'll come in time, but it will be a slow and ongoing process.
For now even some larf will be better than nothing lol. If I get a couple oz's I'll be happy.

You have the abilities. For sure.👍
Tough when equipment holds you back.
gl with it!

One of the plants keeps getting too close to the light so I had to bend the stem again. I hate to do it while flowering, but it's better than crispy buds.
I also removed around 20 leaves, some that were covering bud sites, and some from the center to help with air circulation.
I can't stop smelling my hands lol.

The stem I bent is looking ok, it didn't stress the plant at all.
I've noticed a few pistils starting to get darker, and they're frosting up nicely, it's almost time for the buds to start bulking up.
It's about 4 weeks since I saw pistils, 6 since I flipped, I'm guessing another 3 weeks or so. One plant looks more sativa so it might take longer.
They all look healthy, one is slightly darker green than the others, I believe that's because I'm feeding them all the same level of nutrients, and the darker one doesn't need as much as the others. I'm too lazy to make up multiple feeds haha, so as long as it's not really bad it'll have to do. I'm giving them around 2.0-2.2 EC and pH 6
Some pictures for ya. Not the best camera on my phone.

Today's feed,
EC 2.2, pH 6.1
Soil plant got a good drink of water, pH 6, EC 0.0, been giving her a feed of bat guano once in a while, either that or the flavor savior, both organic so they're just boosting what's already in the soil. I'm not going overboard with it, but I do like the flavor they add to the end product, and the plants love it too.

Here's my outdoor girl with some clones, hiding in the long grass, and some pics from the tent.
Buds are getting denser every day.

I supercropped my outdoor girl and tied her down. I'm trying to get a ring of budsites around the edge of the pot and keep the center open for airflow.
