Grow Update - Dec 6, 2021 Planting

IMG_0160.JPG

The humidity was only 12% with the pan of water so I added a humidifier and I've been experimenting with various fans and light settings. The water I use has the chlorine and fluoride filtered out but it still needs to be ph adjusted. I fill a gallon jug with that water to a fill line I've drawn near the top. The glass on the left is just the water and the one on the right had 2 ml of vinegar added to the gallon of water. Hope I've read that right.

That's 3 Gorilla Glues and 1 Banana Kush. As you can see, they're at different stages of growth. That was not my intention but there were some early setbacks.

Originally, I did a direct sow into 3 pots, 1 GG and 2 BK. i used a mix of organic soil, compost, vegetable fertilizer, mycro., pearlite. Forgot to add the azomite. Anyway, I had those things on hand and didn't see why it wouldn't work. Two weeks passed and nothing at all was sprouting, damn.. I stopped watering it thinking it was a bust. So, I put the blame on the medium and bought Ocean Forest and two more weeks went by.

I start to replace the medium and when I get to the 3rd pot I see a sprout. Saved it and in the picture above, it's the plant with buds. The two similar sized plants were planted a month later and are both GG. I just realized that the plant with the buds could be GG or BK...huh.. have to look closer now. :)

At this point I still had some BK seeds left over and that's what went in the 4th pot. At least that's what I thought. The plant in the foreground is the 4th pot with the BK as I switch the plants around and rotate them. What an odd looking cannabis plant I thought but the dog really likes it a lot and started to take a bite. Becoming more suspicious by the day, I remember I have an app on my phone to help me identify plants, PlantNet. It was Catnip. No, I have no idea, it's destined to become a cold case.

Pulled the Catnip and found a home for some garlic.

Future plans: Adding to the grow room with another light on an open grow space. 7 gal fabric pots to grow regular cannabis. Have to build a light stand and buy a light. Any recommendations on lights for a 3x5 coverage? Any scientists out there. :)
Jack Herer and Super Lemon Haze, both autoflowers will go in the tent when harvest is over.
I also have a vegetable seed starting station upstairs. Planting begins next week.

Hoping to develop a best practices list as time goes on. A daunting task with all the different opinions out there but there's no substitute for experience and being able to have 3 or more grows a year should kickstart the learning.

Kind regards to all.

Catnip!! Lol that is epic. You should plant that around the house. But be warned, perhaps you knew this, but that stuff grows like a weed! But you will have the coolest cats on the block lol
