First Harvest







Just harvested my first grow.

I had decent growth at the tops but not so much at the bottom.

Didn’t fully understand training but hopefully I get it better the next go round.

Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

Hey thanks for the welcome. I don’t have any questions right now I guess I was just looking for some feedback regarding the pictures I posted how does it look for a first grow what does it look like I did right or wrong… That kind of feedback.

You have smokable bud, that’s as good as a 1st grow can go. Don’t worry about the bottoms, they don’t produce well, and as you go you’ll start getting rid of that stuff early.

@dunbar is right, forget the bottoms, I installed two side lights each 4ft x18" 40,000 lux trying to get the bottom buds like the top ones, I had heard the reason is that they don’t get as much light. Well only to a certain extent, they will get bigger with bottom/side lighting but not enough to make it worth the electric bill. Been there done that.

Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been watching videos on training hopefully that will help my next grow so it doesn’t just grow straight up but outwards and a little bit fatter

You got bud, that you grew. I consider that a success. I have been growing for many years and still consider myself a newbie and always will.
You will learn how not to do things again each grow, I still do.
For your first grow, I believe that you deserve a pat on the back.

Welcome to GN @noblesavage , nice pictures and harvest. Great to be smoking your own homegrown.

Since you are learning about growing cannabis ,I can highly recommend doing the Cannabis 101 course on GN University. The online course will definitely teach you more about growing eventhough its essentially an indoor course. Try it out.

I think i got those same jars, do the humidy detectors from amazon not quite fit in them?

Haven’t used any of those. But plan too next time. So many things I realize I needed to do but didn’t :laughing: my plan is to grow about 10 plants next time and do it with all the extra things I left out. Like humidity detectors etc.

Thanks so much! I tastes and smokes pretty good but a little on the dry side. Need to control humidity better next grow I think.

check out Boveda 2 way humidity control packs… more of a curing process item, but really nice to have. 2 cents

Can you elaborate a bit on this one? Add fruit to the jars after I trim :thinking:

an old trick tobakky smokers use is to put a piece of lettuce, or apple, or my favorite (because it doesn’t add a taste really) is the heel end of a loaf of bread. shift it around each day, the wacky tobakky will absorb the moisture. after a couple days, take the piece out.

Well after a whole lot of over thinking… I stopped using any food items to moisten my plant material. I don’t want to add any kind of sugar or anything that could cause mold. I also feel that it is best to bring the moisture up in your flour slowly. So I use a little bit of water on a piece of paper towel, a ring as much water out of it as I can get and I put the small piece of paper towel in the jar overnight or half a day. I usually take a couple of days and bring it up in small increments to prevent getting any wet spots. Basically just creating moist air in the jar. After 12 hours when you check it usually the paper towel is dried out completely and if the flowers not to the desired moisture content, wet the paper towel again ring it out all the way again and repeat. Takes a minute to do this but the end result is very desirable.

Sidenote. With jars as small as you’re using I would just cut a square of paper towel a little bit bigger than the opening ring it out as dry as you can get it after wetting and then just cover up the flower with it and put the lid on. :+1:t3:

Nothing but the boveda packs for me!

Boveda is great IMO. I have weed from my very first grow in 2019 stored with it that is still smokable and not dried out. Quality has gone down some but hell its 2 yrs old. Highly recommend.
