This is my first official post to GP and what better way to start than with a grow journal?
I'm a 21 year old (handsome) male. I was in a car accident which rendered me a paraplegic. I'm paralyzed from the waist down and so I am confined to a wheel-chair. As wonderful as the compassion centre is, that I belong to, the prices are still high in my books. I never thought I would be able to grow my own medication because of my disability. I don't want to get all Oprah here, but it was for no reason other than the fact that I thought it was too much physical labor and that I wasn't capable. I am happy to say that this is not the case at all! you can do it. Of course, for me, I needed help with certain things like carrying equipment and setting things up. If you can get some help with that, you're set.
I'd also like to add this is my first grow -- of any kind. I have no horticulture experience whatsoever. I am so interested in all the new things to learn, it's like a whole new world with new languages and cultures. So really, if I can grow (well, keep an eye on this journal to see if I can) then anyone can.
Yesterday, I officially received 6 clones.
4 x Sno Dawg and 2 x JackTheRipper. They are quite sizable already.
I am growing this in an extra bedroom in my apartment. Currently I have the vegging area setup; the vegging area is a small 3x3 closet in a room that is 11x12, which will be my main flowering area.
The closet (vegging area) consists of:
-- 36" T12 Light, With Daylight Bulbs.
-- 6 CLONES
-- a small coffee table
-- spray bottle.
I am not sure how old these plants are, of course I will definitely find out asap. For now, they are in the vegging stage; I mist them a few times a day and turn them slightly at the same time.
Also, 3 of the plants are in hydroton, and the other 3 are in ProMix.
How old do you guys think they are? The light is touching the biggest plant in one of the pictures, I simply moved the tray so that the big plant is on the higher side. Unfortunately, I can't adjust the light myself and will make-do until I can get some help. Now, the goal here is so that I can do this as independently as possible, and so in the future I hope to set it up in a way where I can adjust the height myself.
That's it for now.
Please don't be afraid to criticize, give pointers, ask questions. I want to do this for the rest of my life and I want to learn as best as possible.
