GHE is pretty easy to use. GHE flora series. Buy flora gro,flora micro, and flora bloom. Buy calimagic. And GHE web got a pretty easy to follow schedules and amounts. You should start with them now if you want. For the exhaust question! LED lights don't put out that much heat so you could run a test and let your tent reach its max temperature with light on and see how hot it gets of its under 85°f your are good.. of you want an exhaust what I did is I bought a cheap bathroom exhaust fan at homedepot and connect it to the 6in circular window the tent came with that will drop my temperature from 90 that will reach to 82°f i got a 650w LED plus 4 n27 LED bulbs and for an intake I just put a desk fan on another window pushing air into the tent, cheap (under 70$)and works, i don't vent to the outside of my home though. Dark phase during veg keep it to 4 hours when you want to switch to flower just change the schedule I have run an experiment. I once gave her 24hr of darkness when switching and also switched without any dark periods more than the regular 12 hrs.. and there is no difference in how fast it flowers. But the plant with 24hrs of darkness was more pale after I gave her the light again. Once its dark for the plants is better to just leave her in the dark.. of you must check her in the dark tray to do it with a small flash light and do it fast... I got this crazy rule of mine which if I have to check it in the dark I try to do it no more than an hour after lights went off and for no longer than 5 min. But that's me lol. I haven't notice anything abnormal on plants I had checked during dark time though. Hope this helped my friend..

look great.
up to 3 weeks you can not give anything to veg.
you can give a stimulant for the roots.
when it is dark you can look. but not for long

I would not bother checking your plants during lights out. But doing so wont hurt any to be honest. I have done it, but your light cycle in veg should be long enough that you dont need to be in there during that rest period.

I would start feeding nurtients now! Start at 1/4 dose and see how she responds. If no issues then increase again next week. Always a great idea to add plain PH water to your feed at least once a week to prevent a buildup of salts, and will help you along the flowering stage so she can take her nutes from leaves and not rely 100% on your feeding.

If you dont have a load of fans then do you have a window near by? You can run a duct from a window to your tent which will bring in fresh air. Even better if you can connect to to a intake fan. Be sure to put a screen over the duct so no bugs get in the room!

In soil you only really need flowering nutrients , if you flower from week 4-6 , tent temperature should be kept around 25C , with 55% -65% humidity, you need fresh air , plants like it . check your plants in the dark cycle under green light . :+1:

Fox farm big bloom is a micronutrients that's the whole grow.
Grow big is a veg mute give it starting 3rd week.
Tiger bloom is bloom and give it around week 7-9 until 1 week before end.
Then flush that puppy.
If its auto you can not worry about darkness.
If photoperiods dont interrupt darkness unless you want hermies.

Were so happy to have you hear!
There are so many amazing people newbies, up to masters! And they're all helpful and kind. Well the ones I've talked to anyway. :)

Oh a couple oscillating fans and an open port should work good unless you want an exhaust fan
Best of luck!

it all depends on the medium you're using. Is the soil already fertilised or not. Most nutrient companys have a feeding schedule, but be carefull with those. They often indicate the highest dose you can use. So I would advise in the early stages half strenght nutes and see how your plants react. You can always ad more, the opposite is impossible ;) A root stimulator and a soil improver based on natural enzymes can be used from te start. It promotes the accelerated breakdown of dead plant material so they release additional nutrients that stimulate soil life. I also wouldn't recommend checking your plants during the dark hours. Try to keep it to a minimum. And of course your grow room needs a decent amount of ventilation and fresh air. So a ventilator and a tube fan are key!

In soil you won’t need nutes until weeks five or six.
Hawkbo answered grow question 4 years ago
The soil should have nutes for first couple weeks like dude said, but, I would highly reccomend supplementing with a rooting formula as it will def. Speed things up such as roots excellerator by house and garden which is my personal favorite but pricey. Rhizotonic by canna is also good but also expensive and rapid start by general hydroponics is a cheap but solid alternative. You could also consider great white or maybe real growers recharge. Hope this helps best of luck buddy

Growing in soil should allow you to not need to feed for the first few weeks. There should be plenty of nutrients in the soil for the seedling and early veg stages. I'd personally recommend waiting til weeks 3 or 4 to start with nutrients and even then at around 1/2 strength for the next week or 2. With photo-period plants, like yours, you should not interrupt the dark period at all. As Devoke said above, interrupting the dark period can cause hermaphrodites. If it happens once or twice for very brief periods, you'll probably be fine. But definitely do not make it a habit. So far, it looks like you're off to a great start! Good luck!

Do not look at your plants in the dark hours, this can cause hermies! (hermaphrodites) which is a weed plant that can produce both sex parts and pollinate themselves and you will have seeds in your bud,
