Indoor 400w HPS Soil - Greenhouse's Chemdog & Dinafem's Critical Jack Auto's ~-=Completed=-~
    #589367 - 09/29/11 02:24 AM (5 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, I've just started my first grow.
Being my 1st time I decided to do a grow journal, to help out other noobs, and also so some of the more experienced growers can catch my mistakes before they become unforgiving and costly, (xX my fingers are crossed Xx :laugh:)

The seeds. Five Feminised Chemdog seeds from Greenhouse.
Cost $33 delivered to australia


Germination
Used a plate, some damp paper towels, large snap-lock baggie




Seeds were put on the top shelf of my closet which was room temperature, then into the large baggie.
Twenty-four hours later, the seeds were just beginning to crack.
At fourty hours all seeds had germinated.
They were carefully planted, roots pointing down, into pots.


Soil used was a plain potting mix with no fertilizers.
I then put the pots outside, as my growroom isn't ready yet. Should be ready by next week I'm hoping. Waiting for some rainbow foil and missing reflector bracket to be delivered, and need to install an intake vent and my 150mm centrifuge fan.


-=Edit=-
Some of the earlier photobucket photos have been removed by me as I forgot to untag the GPS locations, but the majority of photobucket pics were removed from the servers by Photobucket. Pics uploaded to Growery still work fine though :laugh:

Should I be putting the pot in the sun yet? Or should I wait for its first set o leaves?

Also, do you think i should fill the pots drip trays with water?
So it doesnt dry out as quickly outdoors?

keeping them in the sun is fine. and just make sure the soil is damp. you dont really need a drip system. if the soil was wet when you planted it shouldnt need a watering until the plants sprout.

Big night at the club last night, I ended up sleeping until 1pm, lol
Anyways, when I woke up I noticed it had been raining.
The drip trays under the plant pots were full of water so i removed them from the trays.
Is all that rain water bad for the seeds(too much)?

On a happier note, I've seen the first signs of sprouting on one of the plants.

Two plants in total are starting to sprout :laugh:

Should I collect the rainwater? I think I read somewhere that rainwater is good to water with, is that right?

Also, all that stuff you see in the pot is not part of my potting mix.
Its been really windy lately, and there are several large trees surrounding the property. So all the bark, sticks and bits of leaf end up falling into the pot. That shouldnt have any ill effect on my plants, right?

Cool. Any ideas on the best way to store it? I don't have an aerator.

I just throw a black rubber made bin outside in the rain let it fill up.  when it stops raining I put a lid on it and put it in the garage.

Germination Update

Four out of five plants have broken soil! I wasn't expecting 100% germination so I was quite happy with that.

Anyways, it turns out that I had planted the last one too deep.
I gently dug it out. The seed pod has almost come off, though its stem seems to be lying down from the weight of the soil over it. Hopefully she rights herself up. Fingers crossed for five healthy ladies XxX
But even four puts a smile on my face :laugh:

Just watered them now. The plant in the last pic, top left, fell over shortly after watering as if the stem could not support the extra weight of the water :frown:
I propped it upright and added some soil to the pot to stand it up. Come to think of it, all pots soil levels look much lower then when i first planted them. Should I top up the soil in all the other pots?

well that could be a result of how airy the substrate is anyway. you have alot of sticks in there and the actual dirt could just wash away you know?

and soil compacts on its own anyway. like when i fill a pot to the brim after about a week or two its an inch or so lower.
