    I started my grow back on November 28th. I used the 3x3 shower in the basement for my area. I have a Bestva 1000w led, carbon scrubber, 4 inch inlet fan and one small fan that blows above the plants. The plants sprouted on December 5th and kept them in 18/6 light until January 21st. They are now starting to fatten up the buds and I covered the area pretty well with 4 plants in 3gallon smart pots. I’m completely new to this and learned quite a bit in my little experience this far. Here is a couple of pics of them currently.

    @Disrupt thanks! I get a little obsessed with my hobbies sometimes. This one is just so rewarding.

    I have been watering every three days with a half tablespoon of Cal-Mag. I feed them fox farm Nutes trio with two regular ph’d waters inbetween feeding. When I first started the nutrients about two weeks from flip I not knowingly fed them way too much. I was giving full strength the bottle suggested. I had to flush my babies and that was a lot of work with four 3 gallon pots. They recovered beautifully, actually think they really loved the flush. Anyone have any advice for me on my next grow? I understand fox farms might be overrated or maybe there’re is a cheaper option just as good or better. I use the general hydroponics solution to test ph. I’ve gotten pretty good at knowing how much ph down to use. Still takes quite a bit of time though.

    Some shots from the Sea today. She’s looking like she’s picking up some frost. These little rewards each day :cry: I just get so proud of them.

    I raised the shorter plants to match the tallest yesterday and it seems like it helped a lot already.

    Looks like you're expecting quite a harvest. Considering it's your first grow, are you prepared for that part of it as well?

    @Disrupt Yea I’m really new to it all. Ive been reading at growweedeasy.com. I think I have the dry and curing process down. That is the only part that has been scaring me so far.

    Do not use boveda packs learn how to do it correctly..........using your tactile senses.
    I will walk you through it when the time comes if you would like.

    @arb I would appreciate that very much. Is there anything to purchase other than jars?

    Trimming might be more work than you expect.

    Excited to see those flowers swell up! Are you planning on drying your flowers in your tent, or do you have another spot?

    Yea I was planning on drying in the grow area. The humidity is at 64% without the light on though. Would I need to bring that down?

    I would say yes. Where I live we never see RH that high, my last crop dried at 55F / 45% RH and it took almost 2 weeks. I hang my plants with fan leaves and all, so that contributes to the slower drying.
