Nice tent

You make it yourself? Or is it a prefab jobby?

Seems this tent thing is all the rage

Waiting for more

thx tap, migro, mr niceguy

the tent was a prefab migro, its a good place to practice training of all sorts for me since im looking to run something a bit larger than this grow atm. i think i might be forced to keep them in small ass pots till they show preflowers, since im only gonna have space for one plant, and these seeds werent feminized. will be posting pics every week-ish, to grab some pointers on my training skills.

stick around!

Veg em for about 3 weeks (roughly 7 nodes) and force them.. just select final potsize based on number of females.. If you only get one put it in the biggest pot that will fit and veg it some more and LST it.... those little rubbermaid style boxes that hold around 14L (3.5 gallon) are perfect for these style grows.. If you get 2-3 flower them all in appropriate sized pots... 2-3L (1/2-3/4gallon) each. 2-3 smaller plants in smaller pots will yield better than 1 bigger plant in 1 pot under that lighting IMO and need less veg time too, which would mean a faster yield You have plenty of headroom which is nice

Not that I'm telling you what to do lol. Thats just how I would approach a similar grow.


Another option is just to pot up at their first set of true leaves into the biggest container you can find that will fit and leave vent space.. when the plants are about 3 weeks old you can force them to flower.... Same again - more fems - less veg. Cull the males and train whats left to fill the space...

A bit like I have in this pic... I was lucky and got three fems in this one, I LST'd them starting from when they begun to stretch and yielded almost 2oz from the three plants Dunno if I could've done that with just the one.

Its a 24L rubbermaid style box that I just drilled drainage holes in.



The plants were trained to fill the spaces...

yea i think i'm gonna veg em out, and transplant em into pots that will fit all three. if i get a male then i'll get larger pots before i flower? or veg em for a lil before so they grow some roots..

regarding their stature, i want em to be bushy and have multiple heads.. just not sure yet which method im gonna use. i'll prob top + lst em.

i dont know if you could see it in the picture but i have the 4 lights situated on the four corners of the tent, with 1 40w CFL hanging from the top. i think this will allow me to have an ultra bushy plant(s) without having to worry about light penetration... so taking this into account... bushier plants > one main head right?

will take some more pics once they get taller

Default this is jsut a suggestion..

but if you get more than one female i would just put down some plastic and find a rubbermaid that will fit and is deep enough to hold em . You could get 2 plants in there man, but yeah more than that is pushing it.


Anyways, good start with the grow man. Good luck.
