Alright I started this grow before joining the farm but figured I'd post this anyway. I just popped some Glueberry Muffin, Yeti, O-Face, and Happy Place beans and will do a real journal on those. This is my first grow...
I'm growing in a 7'x7' room using a 600w XL air cooled tube reflector. 6" 390cfm exhaust to filter. Used a 600w Vivosun MH from vege through the first 10 days of flower. 600w Eye Hortilux Super HPS from day 11 of flower on. I will switch back to the Halide to finish off the final 10-14 days. Using Coco and final pot size is 5gal (fabric). I'm using advanced nutrients 3 part, along with various other ingredients seaweed extract, Bio Ag fulvic and humic acids, and VAM. I also started incorporating a worm tea during flowering. Thankfully I have an abundance of fresh quality castings at my immediate disposal... I have 5 plants under a 4'x4' double screened Scrog. Plants were in vege for 6.5 weeks before flipping. I am currently on day 13 of flower.

More recent pics...
These are of my girls that are about 2 weeks into flower. The little one under the CFL's is an unknown seed that ended up being an auto flower. It was topped twice and LST'd pretty hard right before it started flowering in my nursery with 18/6 light schedule.... whoops.

My ghetto and thankfully very temporary nursery room. Currently have a Lav Zelda mother as well as a Zkittles Z3 by TerpHogz I'm thinking about keeping as a mother. Everything else are clones of Z3's, Zelda's, and Lav Zelda. My Glueberry Muffin, O face, happy place and Yeti seedlings are about to go into the nursery. Those will have clones taken from each and go into flower. The keepers will eventually be thrown into motherhood and turned out!

Looking good, I am about to start my 1st. Coco coir DTW grow, my buddy who does super soil is in hospital for gall bladder removal & I am worried complications may push me to regulate this 1st grow & this forum really "cares" & helps fellow budsmen.Cheers.

Looking closely at these Destiny Exotic Genetic strains as I have some on the way.

Great looking first grow and I am certain you ill pull it off no doubt, looks like you have read and absorbed plenty.

You'll have no worries.

Well played so far.

Thank you! Yah I have studied my ass off! This is the first of many grows for sure! I'll be posting the destiny strains soon. I'm excited to see how they grow!

Zkittles Z3, Z, and LZ day 18 of flower. 5 plants under a 48"x54" double screened SCROG. 600w Hortilux super HPS bulb in a XL cool tube reflector. Things are moving along. Frosty flowers are on their way! I will be doing a heavy defoliation on day 21 or 22. I will post before and after photos of that process.

Some seedlings I popped from Destiny Exotic Genetics Yeti, Glueberry Muffin, Happy Place, and O-Face. I'm still trying to develop my best method which is why they're at different stages, in different mediums etc.

Looking good.

Just to note for the future, much better to fill those pots right up before you start seedlings because you have really limited root growth space and also makes it tricky to repot to bigger pots.

They may stretch a bit so the pots could be filled up in a few days time or so.

As for seedlings, all I do is soak in water for approx 24hrs and straight into soil/coco. They usually break surface within 48hrs or so and I've done it this way for decades.

Tissue method and all that shit is just too much handling. The wat I do it my seeds are never touched by my hands. Simply soak, tweezers into their full pots and hello within 48hrs.

Ill be starting in a few weeks with either Glueberry Muffin or Yeti and given the good germination rate you have pulled off I'm looking forward to get started.

Well played.

Thanks for sharing your proven process. Much appreciated! I have been filling them up after they grow up past the rim of the solo cups for better stabilization and root production. Glad to hear this is common practice among seasoned growers! Looking forward to seeing your grow. Thanks for checking mine out!

I'd go carefully with stripping so much 28 days into flower.

Could really cause some serious stress.

I scrog now and again but never happy with it really and I can't remember a time when I've left the scrog net on until finish. It becomes a hassle in the end.

The canopy you have there is not even with lots of gaps which will hinder you going forward such as leaning over to inspect the one at the back and far corners.

Rather than scrog the full lot I've done individually scrogged pots which is better as you have more manoeuvrability.

Scrog is good when done right all with the same strain which are more likely to grow together than differing strains which will have differing growth stages.

Scrog is an every day job tucking, weaving and tying from late veg to say 3 weeks into flower with an even canopy with no gaps.

I find that LST is just as good and you have a far lot more control than scrogging.

I don't have any pics here but I'm under the same name in RIU for the last decade or so and I think there is some pics there of the individually scrogged one I mentioned. I'm just a middle aged grower who grows for myself only and it's been that way for decades. Sometimes I post sometimes I don't and I am new here specifically because I just bought from Destiny Exotic Genetics and the only place I seen them on is here. I'll be starting them soon.

Not trying to sound like a cock but I am certain you will learn a lot from this scrog and do it different next time.

I'm really sorry but I just thought if mention it and tell my to fuck right off if you want.

Just pointing you in the he right direction and no worries either way. I do like helping where possible.

After all, I have the same strains as your young ones so I have both our best interests at heart.

Hope we get something special.
