    first time grower here from Massachusetts where it is now legal to grow 6 plants per person and 12 per house. I've never even smoked in my life but I think it sounded fun to grow and I could help out my friends haha

    I started out with 3 seeds: Jack Herer, OG Kush, and a purple hulk. The purple hulk didn't germinate but I later realized it was auto so I wasn't too upset.
    I planted them on Feb 26, the picture of them sprouted was march 4th and I transplanted them into the containers on march 7th

    The grow space I am using is a 4x2x5 Millard grow tent. The light is a viparspectra 600w led, and I have a small clip on fan in the tent. I am using Coco Coco pearl as a medium

    March 14 and I got more leaves

    My seed order came in from attitude with 3 new strains. I decided to germinate these by putting them in a shot glass with distilled water for 12 hrs then placing them in the jiffy pellets

    March 17 and It's been cold in Massachusetts and keeping the temp consisistent has been a struggle in the garage. As you can see the temps drop considerably at lights off even with the heater

    March 19th and my seeds sprouted and my other two seedlings are plugging away. I am feeding them coco nutrients at half strength since coco has no nutrients

    March 25 and I realize that the plants are not as healthy looking as they should..combination of too small container and over watering I suspect is the culprit so I move them to their final destination, 2.2 gallon air pots.

    March 29 and the plants are loving the air pots. The leaves are pointing up and I decided to top them. I am hoping I did it correctly

    Thanks,

    After reading about the limitations on my current light I have decided to upgrade the lights for the flowering stage. I ordered a 400w Citizen Cob set up from Timber with 8 Citizen 1212's in alternation 3000k and 3500k order. Should give me plenty of light for my 4x2 setup. I also ordered a 2x2 tent for clones/veg so i can set up a perpetual grow.

    Replanted my 3 seedlings into airpots today. Got all my ducting run and my carbon filter hung. I'll get the fan tomororw and I can hook it up. That should help take care of the high humidity I've been having
    Td silent series 100xs
    Phesh 4x12 filter

    Also threw in a bag of exhale co2

    Really need to get my humidity under control. Fan won't be here till tomorrow now. Ordered a dehumidifier as well in case the fan doesn't solve the problem. Otherwise everything seems to be looking good to my newb eyes. I only watered the two established plants today as I am letting the seedlings dry a little to promote some root growth after a heavy water yesterday when I transplanted them

    Worked 12 hours today but came home at 9pm to my fan being delivered. When I left this morning the humidity was still out of control so I opened up one of the vents to increase circulation. I hooked up my fan so hopefully this will
    Solve some of my problems

    td silent series 100xs with a phresh 4x12 carbon filter.

    The two plants I cropped have developed two terminal buds as planned. How much do I allow them to grow before I top them a 2nd time?
