Welcome to my first grow!

This is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a teenager. I waited 20 years for this day. Wish me luck!

I’m starting with Blackberry Auto by FastBuds. 100% organic. KindSoil + Coco Loco + carbon filtered tap water. Absolutely no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals!

As for training, I will top her in week 3 and start LST shortly after. I’ll keep her nice and tidy with occasional defoliation.

My setup consists of:

• Spider Farmer 3x3x6 tent
• Spider Farmer SF-4000 LED
• AC Infinity S4 Inline Fan
• AC Infinity 4” Carbon Filter
• AC Infinity S9 Airplate (suspended above drivers)
• Genesis 6” Clip Fan (x2)
• SensorPush Wireless Hygrometer

Growing medium:

• 5 gallon fabric smart pot
• 5lbs of KindSoil in bottom of pot
• Topped off with FoxFarm Coco Loco on top

Day 1: Welcome to the world! :hugging_face: She finally broke through the surface overnight and almost dried up. :anguished: Luckily, the plastic cup was over her and still had a tiny bit of moisture left by the time I woke up. That was a close call! I gave her a nice big drink of room temperature carbon filtered tap water.

Day 2: I gave her two small drinks today. I’m trying to keep her roots consistently damp during these early days without overwatering. She seems to be doing perfectly fine with her 2nd set of true leaves already starting to develop!

Day 3: The end of day three and she’s happy as can be! :blush: I lightly watered twice again today. Her leaves are already filling up with trichomes! :star-struck: After researching, I believe they are specifically “bulbous” trichomes. I’ll get a microscope soon to confirm this. Enlarge today’s photo to see them!

Day 4: Lost power at the end of the day while she was in her normal dark period, but the light would have normally turned back on by now so hopefully the power is back soon! :pray:

Day 5: The power has been out for more than 24 hours now. Her normal 6 hour dark period turned into 11 hours of darkness before I hung a small LED flashlight over her. The flashlight was on her for another 9 hours, and then I was able to move her outside. Definitely not ideal, but she is loving the sunshine. :sunny: She’ll have to stay outdoors for now.

Day 6: She started day 6 outside and was moved back into the tent after the power finally came back on. I’ll get her back into her normal 18/6 light schedule. She’s been getting one drink per day.

Day 7: Very pleased with the progress at the end of week one. She is looking great. The 2nd set of fan leaves are developing nicely and the 3rd node is already starting to show! The ride got a little bumpy because of the power outage, but that didn’t seem to faze her. Looking forward to week #2.

Thank you for following along on my first grow!

@Anetxu420, thanks for the heads up on my humidity. I’m keeping a close eye on her and playing it by ear. I’ll add a humidifier if needed. She’s currently in day 2 and looking healthy. Best of luck with your grow! :+1:
