Ganja Plant 2
|||||Beck - Black Tambourine||]|
Hi everybody! Welcome to my grow journal! I'm sure you're anxious to see the plants get underway, I'll try not to disappoint you. :)
First, here are the details of my grow:
- Cinderella 99 (C99) seeds purchased off of Heaven's Stairway.
- Indoor (I live with two very open-minded parents, lucky me!)
- 250 Watt HPS Light purchased off of Inside Sun, just got here yesterday!
I've had the seeds for some time; first I tried germinating three of them unsuccessfully, ended up just tossing them all in small containers of 1/2 garden soil + 1/2 Miracle-gro potting soil outdoors, that didn't go very well:
Yeah, I planted marijuana and ended up with bean sprouts. :P
Anyway, I still have faith in the quality of the seeds (Heaven's Stairway was recommended on the prestigious overgrow.com) so tomorrow I'm going to try germinating the seven that are left and after a couple have sprouted, I'll transfer them into 12 oz. Dixie Cups with drainage holes and place them in this nifty cabinet I constructed:
It's actually just an opened cooler with my light + reflector placed in front of it, but hey, it gets sufficient ventilation and goddamn does that white color reflect the light well. As the plants grow bigger they'll get placed in bigger pots and eventually a bigger space, that's a bridge I'll burn when I come to it.
For now, I'm just letting my seven seeds chill in the refrigerator overnight, which is supposed to increase their germination rate. After that I'll fold them into a damp Kleenex, place it into a ziploc bag, blow in air, and seal. I'll place the bag in a warm, dark place (probably a cabinet in my garage) for about 3 days, and with any luck a couple of the seeds will be looking like this:
Like I said, from there I'll just plant 'em in the Dixie Cups with the tail pointing UPWARDS and it's on with the show!
That's about it for now, I'll update as soon as some of the seeds germinate. If you're an experienced grower and have something to offer, please do so, as this is my first time. :D
Again, thanks for watching everybody, I look forward to this.
