Just a noob’s picture of my ghetto-grow

Recommended Posts

Hi I just wanted to pass along a pic of some young plants I started recently from seed.  Man they are so pretty....I got the seeds from the Cannabeizein Garden club.  There are two strains here: 1) Tree of Life BX and 2) Pineapple Haze x Second Sight.  

 

Really I just want something to put me in a stable orbit around Nebulon 5....these look like Indicas or at least a big genetic component.

Sorry I forgot the attachment.....

 

 

Do you have plans to transplant them soon? They are getting pretty big for those cups. Also, have a small fan blowing by them to help strengthen the stalks up. 

Are they going outside? 

 

Thanks for showing them to us.

No they will be staying inside and I never realized that air circulation will work to thicken the trunks and stems....  thanks EK!  

 

I plan to move them under some cfls shortly and to transplant them into bigger pots...this was really a spur-of -the moment idea.

Not too strong right now, They need to have just a slight breeze. otherwise, they could fall over. Just have your fan lightly moving them. Maybe to the side, not directly on them. soon though you can add more wind as they grow stronger. 

 

Its fun to grow. I know this is just experimental. They are looking really healthy right now. 

 

Ask me anything no matter what about growing these out. I'll keep it simple and cheap.

Thank you EK!  I can already see roots at the bottoms of the cups that they are planted in now, so you are right about needing to put them into bigger containers.  

 

I’m a little unsure about what size of container to put them in next.  On the one hand, I like to minimize the number of times that they are re-potted, since whenever I do it, the plants seem to be injured and take about a week to start growing again.  Conversely I don’t want to put them into ten-gallon buckets when they probably won’t be allowed to get very big anyway.  Wow I think I just answered my own question!  

 

BTW in my last grow, the plants were flowered in individual 10 gallon buckets and an autopsy revealed that there was A LOT of root accumulation at the bottom of the bucket, but not so much throughout the rest of the soil volume.  That says to me that I should try and find containers that are taller and less wide than the standard ten gallon bucket, although I don’t think I will be vegging them for that long, given the space restrictions where I am now.  

 

I like using the homer buckets however because the hard plastic of the buckets makes for good, strong tie-down points for doing LST (Low Stress Training) of the plants during the next phase of vegging.  

 

I appreciate and respect the opinions of everyone on here!

I was concerned about that myself. Those cups will not support the plants for long.

A one-gallon container should suffice for Vegging in the house,  You can even flower them in one gal, if necessary.  Use an aerated soil, one with lots of perlites added, this should enable your roots to grow more throughout the soil. It also helps make the soil go further.
