Just signed up and wanted to post my grow journal.
This will be my 3rd grow, my first using HPS and I am a noob but learn fast.
The aim of this journal will be to show that growing weed is actually quite simple, I wont be doing anything overly fancy and just sticking to K.I.S.S (keep it simple, stupid!)
On my first grow I used bag seeds, got 2 plants out of it. One male and one female. I didnt chop the male fast enough and he ended up fertilizing the female. I grew under a 125w CFL and a couple 20w CFLs and got a dry yield of 55g inc seeds.
I took a few clones and 2 rooted and are currently in slightly different stages of flower. One is probably a week away from flower whilst the other has only been flowering for a couple of weeks. The flowering was done under 2 125w CFL but 2 weeks ago I swapped that for a 600w HPS. The younger of the 2 clones has grown so much faster than the other will yield way more I predict!
Ok – back to this grow.
My set up is:
600w HPS in air-cooled reflector (yes I am using it to veg – K.I.S.S remember)
8 x 4 Gallon Smart Pots
bog standard grow in a bag soil bought from your local hardware store (K.I.S.S)
bog standard flowering plant fertilizer and a slightly less strong bonsai tree fertilizer (K.I.S.S)
4 x Strawberry Skunk. This is a new strain and I cannot wait to taste it as I think Strawberry makes everything taste better!
4 x Northern Lights
They are grown from seeds.
Once my flowering cycle is done and I start flowering these bad boys I will take the 600w HPS and add it to the other to give me my 1200w of sun power!
The aim is to pull 20 zip from this 1200w/8 plant SCROG set up but would be happy with 16.
