Hello! Just looking for some general advice / suggestions on how to progress my current grow.
If you like, you can read my journal (with lots of pictures!) thus far here: Inkfromblood's grow #1 - #52 by inkfromblood
I feel I have a good start on things so far. Here is what I have going on:
2’x2’ Tent with SF1000 - currently has 4 plants:
3 GSC, and 1 Snow White - in Mother Earth 70/30 Coco, in 1 gallon pots.
2’x4’ Tent with SF2000 - 2 plants:
1 GSC, and 1 Gorilla Glue - in Mother Earth 70/30 Coco, in 5 gallon pots.
All plants fed with CalMag + GH Flora Trio + GH Diamond Nectar
I initially germinated 8 seeds, because I figured if some go bad or die whatever, I’d have backups.
One did not make it past germination, an one I gave one plant away to a friend.
All the rest are looking good. The 5 gallon plants, I have topped, and started to LST.
The 1 gallon plants I have topped.
My plan was to just fill the 2’x4’ tent with a nice canopy of the two plants trained, and trellised.
But I’m not sure what I should do with the remaining four 1 gallon pots.
Would it make sense to just try to keep them small and in veg until I harvest the other two?
Does that seem feasible to keep them in veg that long?
Or would it just make more sense to grow them in the space they’re in to flower and just start the next batch from seed again?
I suppose I’m not sure what to expect if I want to leave them in the 1 gallon pots, or if it would be better to remove two, and transplant the remaining 2 into 5 gallon pots, so I’d have two and two.
Next question: My plants are 42 days in from the day I put seeds in paper towels.
But they just got to 6 nodes a couple days ago, which is when I started topping and training.
Based on some other charts and schedules I’ve read, that seems a little slow to me. Am I mistaken? I guess I’m thrown off by the GH FLora charts that list VEG period as only being three weeks.
Well, if you read all this thank you! Hoping to learn more about what I might do from here on out, as well as for next time!
