New member first grow diary

Good day to you all. I have two autos,cream candy, growing along with two regular seeds, cereal milk and a random, and I just would like to know how I’m doing, possible changes I should do. My regulars are on week 5 going into week 6 and I’m wondering should I flip the switch, aka the hours, or wait more. I’m not worried about the autos schedule because well… They’re autos and they’ll do whatever they want anyway. I have have done my research on growing but knowledge won’t compare to experience sometimes. My grow tent is 24x24x48 and I have 4 lants, I know small space for 4 plants, but so far they all have gotten along. What would be my possible yield for a space like this and how can I calculate the height of my plants.

here’s each plants journey up to thus far. I have not used Tiger Bloom yet for I haven’t reached that stage but am excited to see how it plays per strain. Again any recommendations are welcome. P.S I just checked the date on my first week of autos and they are a week behind the regulars

Hi @tygergrowx , welcome to GN and thank you for sharing. Looks like you well onto your way to a good harvest. I would leave the regulars for a bit longer, until they get about 2 foot in height until you flip to shorter hours. I see you are already training the plants which is a great and sure you know the benefits. Hard to say what yield you will get, different strains, growing conditions and also environment. Guys used to say 1 gram per watt of light is a good gauge for yield under HID lamps, not to sure what the going rate is now under LED, most probably the same.

Thank you for the feedback @chrisj. Glad to hear that I’m doing well so far. Been a very fun journey so far me and a fun experience. I will keep in mind to wait until their around 2 feet in height to flip the switch on them.

I’m a newbie too. I’ll say I made a mistake of waiting till about 1’ in height to switch and ended up w 4 footers in a 6’ tent. Grew into hps lights. Light height was maxed out and bent and trained all I could before I snapped anything. Even super cropped. So beware, the stretch is real.

Welcome, fellow newbie here too. I was going to wait until 2 feet tall to flip , I flipped at about 16 inches and now shes 37inches tall at the largest cola. Thank gosh preybird told me to flip early…

Use that Humidifier to keep your levels high. I do know what you mean with the foggy part. Let it fog out then turn it off. Give it a fake dew point😎.I used from seedling to halfway through veg, cause it was getting too humid🥲. Switched over to the dehumidifier at and the levels stay from 55-65. I’m about to Start using open sesame for the rest of veg then switching to another fox farm product. Time to Amp up the npk!

Alrighty here’s an update on the plants. Switched my feed to Fox Farm Open Sesame and I’m seeing quick results happening. 6 full weeks on the myster and cereal milk. Cereal milk still hasn’t flourished like I’d like but maybe she’s a slow bloomer. Haven’t been able to find much info on the grow for it.


Onto the autos, bubblegum is becoming my baby meanwhile cream candy playing games but I know she’ll come around sooner or later. Anyways hope everyone day is well.
