April 3rd

Saw the first bit of green coming out of the ground on day 3. Weather has been pretty cloudy the last couple of days, but the days before that were sunny so I moved them outside during the day.
Been reading up on nutrients and decided to give Plagron products a try. I'll be using:

- Plagron Royal Mix soil
- Power Roots
- Vita Race
- Alga Grow
- Alga Bloom
- Sugar Royal
- Green Sensation

Only took decent pictures on day 6. Laughing Buddha is a bit behind on the day I took pictures but has caught up by now.

Also changed my mind on building a planter. Using cement tubs will be a lot cheaper plus I can move those around if I want. Looking at 45L or 65L (about 12 and 17 gallons) tubs now. Not quite sure if 45L is enough.
I also realised that because I am using heavily fertilized soil I will have to let my plants get a bit bigger before I pot them in there, meaning I will have to pot them twice because the cups will be too small soon.

March 26th

I put the seeds in the ground on march 25th, one day ago on day of writing. I think I'll be germinating and growing them indoor in the windowsill untill somewhere early May, depending on the weather. After that I will move them to the roof terrace, which is quite small so I will have to think about how I will use my space efficiently. It also tends to get quite warm up there mid-summer (35-40°C (95-104°F)) so I might have do think of something for that too.
Most of this grow will be pretty experimental for me. I germinated 3 White Widow Autoflowers in soil last year (outdoor) in an impulse but didn't bother with nutrients or anything. Planning to do things differently this year. I am thinking about building a planter on the roof terrace for my photoperiod seeds, but I'm not quite sure now much soil they need. Autoflowers will be in 10-12 Liter pots.

Grow Questions
Sauswaus week 5 started grow question 3 years ago
Cant find pH section. Leaf edges are burnt. Working on a student budget, had to postpone buying pH meter. Local tabwater is 7,03 - 7,74 according to internet. Ill be adjusting pH starting Thursday. Can I go to 6.0 straight away or should I go down in steps of say 0.2 to adapt
Resolved
Leaves. Edges burnt

Go straight down man, no need to do it gradually. You can also use baking Sosa to raise ph and lemon juice to lower it.
Sauswaus week 9 started grow question 3 years ago
Lower two sets of fan leaves have gone yellow, leaves on internodes in between haven't changed colour. Not sure what's causing this. Nutes? (3-4 more weeks of time released nutes in soil) Too much water? Did water a bit extra because I wasn't going to be home for a couple of days

Leaves. Color - Yellow

Hey bro! Looks like Nitrogen diffiency my friend, Nitrogen is mobile so it will gradually move up the plant from bottom to top.. You don't want this, especially in veg. Try to raise your N or use some Bio bizz fish mix or garlic beast as a foliar spray, 2ml per litre is good. A couple of times should do the trick. Keep your Ph between 6.3 and 6.8. Water a couple of times with water at Ph 6.5. Then go back to your normal nute schedule. Only water your plants when dry. You'll be fine :blush:

Happy growing :sunglasses::seedling:
