New day, new grower, new TENT!

Hello All!
My name is Hunter, I’m a new grower in Tempe. I say new, but I actually just finished my first grow about 2 months ago. It was a 2x4 tent riddled with problems from little platntlings to harvest (I was gifted some clones!!)

I’ve decided to do a new grow and up my game this time! So I’ve upgraded from my itty bitty Vivosun tent to a fully extended (as far as my ceilings will go) 2x4 Gorilla.

By the end of the weekend there will be two 2x4 tents growing some amazing plants!
Pics will be coming soon, I have a decent amount of space to clear up and move around the office.
Shoutout to GrowersHouse in PHX for the help with the new setup!


Hi @greentomatoes

Welcome to GN and great to have you here. Looking forward to seeing the progress of your 2nd grow, bigger and better. Happy growing.


Welcpme to the forum @greentomatoes


Well it’s been a WHILE.

I have 2 plants from seed started when I made this post.

Both have been growing crazy well, now for the last 6.5 weeks.

However there is a MASSIVE height difference between the two plants. And it seems the shorter of the two is male.

The probably male is untrimmed, and the hopefully female just recently had a major trim…I topped off about 6 nodes in one swoop. And then for some severely ghetto reason… decided to put some Neosporin on the exposed stalk, and plug the hole with a chopped off q-tip. The rest of it’s branches have since improved amazingly in growth.

I’m using a 2pot Autopot system. With a 50/50 hand mixed perlite and coco blend.

So far I’ve been following the bottle on General Hydroponics nutrient line off of Amazon, because I still have a lot left over from my first grow.

The water is going through a counter top RO system, that then goes into my Berkey water filter! It comes out to a clean 6.8ph all the time!!

I have some pictures for you now.


Update to the water system.

I purchased the hydrologic micRO75 a while back. I just now got to putting an expansion tank on it. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. A bit odd in setup though, everything I was seeing said to set the tank pressure to a few psi bellow shut off. I get 60 psi from the tap here, so I figured it would need 57 or so. Turns out I have to drop it down about 8 psi. (I didn’t try higher once I got this to work)

Having on demand RO is a blessing.



sweet as, good to see the qbs in action

Great pictures, but if you didn’t take any pictures of the supposed male, I don’t see one. I see some undifferentiated growth, and some female parts, but no definate males. Did you start with Fem seeds?



The last 4 pics I posted are of the plant I thought might be male. Suuuupppper glad I waited and did not cut her.

Thanks for the input!
