LST First grow!

Ok, here it goes. My first grow. Sour Chem Phenom transplanted 11/24 into 5 gal pots. Also White Widow Phenom same dates for both plants. Don’t have earlier dates as they were a gift. I know nice gifts! First LST 12/3 (no pic):cry:. LST today 12/15. Just one hour after training the leaves and pistols are already turning up :grinning:!
Lights are. 600w on veg. My kids got me a T5 600w for my birthday last week. I just hung the T5 today. I’m not sure it is needed as my plants are doing great.
Oh ya 18/6 timed.
Grow medium is ocean forest when transplanted. Only have given them Epsom salt water a week ago. Topped 2wk ago.
I also have 2 clones from sour chem.
Growing on the other side is Harlequin Auto clone its doing good on same 18/6 lighting. Lights are a set of 600 w combined. Will take separation wall away when they are all in flower.
Room is very large 8x 6 to ceiling. I’m only using maybe a third of it.
I don’t really have a question but wanted to talk about my grow. This is so much fun and interesting! I need to feed soon, off to the garden center!

They turned up by morning. I’m excited to watch them grow now without having to do much except feed and water.

Nice work! If you like doing lst, you should look into mainlining! It’s amazing how we can train those little plants.

I’m liking this Main lining. Have to give it a try on next grow. I have many, many hangers so will start making rings. I want to be prepared ahead of time for this. I am learning so much. Who says you can’t teach an almost old dog new tricks! Lol

I can’t tell if you’re using them, but when I’m using my fabric pots, I like to use safety pins (the kind for diapers) all around the pots to tie my branches down.

Yes, cheap, cheap! Works. Lol
This summer I’m going to paint white and maybe sheetrock. Depends on if needed or not. I will grow outside asap this spring.

You must be careful with Emergency blankets. The are designed to reflect 98% heat. It can also create a hotspot on you plants and burn them. Depending on the light. I truly understand the fact of “cheap” setups. But rather use a car window reflector. The are made to reflect light and absorbs heat and cold better, due to the airpockets.

Ok didn’t realise that. I should have tho. So far no problems but could not do the same in the summer. It gets hot here. I always have fans blowing and make sure the temp and humidity are right. It stays right at 68° and 48%humidity. Being in Oklahoma I really have to watch it. Good thing I’m not working or it would be stressful keeping up.
Right now its pretty easy. I will go get some car window reflectors.
This room was rushed because of the wonderful gifts. I was saving for grow tent then suddenly have plants to care for in fall and winter.
Thank you so much for the advice and interest in my plants.
I also check ph in h2o. Its usually real good, well water.
I’m determined to get it all together.
Thank you again.

Q: is Mylar the same as emergency wraps?

1 Like

Always a pleasure to help.
Mylar is more a plastic, that works great. I never used it myself. I’ve always used car reflectors.

I have seen a lot a people successfully using Mylar!
