Hello everybody I will post this again as I only got 1 reply on it the first time. This is my first grow. I will tell you all about my set up, how I started, what I am doing now and show you pictures. All I ask for is creative/constructive criticism. My hopes are not high on this as is is my first time but I am going to try to create something beautiful. I started by planting a seed (just regs from a decent bag) in to a pot of soil. I left it outside in a spot where the sun hits it for about 8 hours a day. It took about 1 week to sprout and within days it was about an 1/2 inch tall. I kept the soil very moist at all times. Within 2 weeks it was 2 inches tall so I decided to transplant in to a 5 gallon bucket. This bucket I am using has holes drilled into the bottom of it (about 25 1/4" holes)and I placed it into another 5 gallon bucket in order to catch the draining water. The soil I am using is very fine, from my backyard. It has organic mulch (compost) mixed throughout it. I don't know the PH of the soil but from what I hear 'Marijuana is a weed and will adapt to anything as long as it has been that way since the start?' I then moved it to a closet in my house that has an attic vent/fan (hoping to relieve the oder eventually. The closet is painted white and is about 9 feet high, 4 feet deep and 3 feet wide. I started off using a 24" soft white fluorescent light and two 14 watt energy saving light bulbs, I kept the lights about 1" away from the plant. Within 4 weeks the plant was about 3 inches tall and has 2 sets of leaves with the third starting. I just now have gotten two 48" fluorescent with 2 fixtures each. The light I have bought for it are EcoLux bulbs by 'GE lighting', They are 40 watts a piece and produce 3000 lumens a piece (Thats 12,000 lumes total). Since I have gotten these lights the plant has started to really take off (I have the light on 24 hours a day for right now). It is now going on 6 weeks and the plant is about 7" tall. For fertilizer I am using the compost mixed within the soil and Fish Emulsion (2% Nitrogen, 4% available phosphate, 0.5%soluble potash). I just got the fish emulsion today and today is a watering day (I usually do a cup of water every other day and feed once a month?) so I mixed 1 teaspoon with 1 Qt of water and feed and watered the plant. That is four times the water I usually give it so I will hold off a few days before watering again. Right now I have my lights sitting vertically around the plant and have a fan running on it 24 hours. I think I hit everything?......If I did miss something feel free to ask about it. I would like comments, questions.....all of your knowledge. The four pictures below are 1st: two weeks; 2nd: three weeks 3rd: four weeks and 4th: fifth week (the pictures were taken with my camera phone so they are not so good but they do work) p.s. I think I am around 6 weeks. I brought the plant inside on June 30th....It was two weeks old by then I believe.
