Hi @Organijuana! You're doing great, your grow space is beautiful, you must be a well organized person! Here are a few thoughts after reading your diary: 1/ I hope you have more space available than what wee see on your last two pictures, be warned you're going to have a jungle, and over-crowded grow rooms are not a good thing, plants tend to cannibalize themselves, apical summits will 'fight' to access to light & fresh air, and as a result, some plants will stretch a lot while others will be left in the shadow and will remain short/small. 2/ your pH is a bit high, almost neutral, but you want it a bit acidic in soilless medium so try to stick to a 5.3~5.8 pH range. 3/ are these really 1gal containers? They look bigger. Anyway, 1gal is fine for the 2 first weeks, but soon you will see roots coming through the bottom of the container, this will be a sign that your babies need to be transplanted in bigger containers. I like to repot my photosynthesis-strains 3 times, start them in a tiny container so the roots can almost get rootbound, transplant them after 2-3 weeks of veg in a medium-sized container to trigger root explosion, then transplant them right before flowering in a big container. This makes the roots spread like crazy. 4/ Try to anticipate your veg/flo schedule, think of how much available height you have and how this strain reacts to the stretch phase, if you wait for too long you might encounter space/height issues. 5/ Don't over-think it, you're doing absolutely fine, and there are many growers to help you in here. You seem to have understood that sometimes, "less is more". I'm confident your run will be successful and rewarded with a great yield. Keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hey man you seem more advanced than most at first grow, certainly i do wish i had those organic skills you're flaunting ! will follow. just a suggestion : light leakage is a serious killer. Be super careful about that - even those light sticks will mess up your plants that are not autos... this is pretty tough, but you absolutely want total and complete darkness. Other than that, looks sharp, well thought out and well planned, friend ! good luck :rocket:
