First grow: nothing fancy

Recommended Posts

I got 10 regular lemon haze and 10 regular durban poison seeds about a year or so ago, was to scared when I heard it grows quite high, but I want to go for it now....

 

My plan is to first soak it in water like the supplier told me, then just  get regular 321 flower potting. Soil and I have some bone meal and that water crystal stufff that goes like jelly and just stick the seeds in there and put it outside and just hope for the best, I don't have the capital for a growbox and all the equipment that goes into that, but I have the seeds and I figure it's not called weed for nothing, 

I want to keep it as simple as possible, so any advice will be much appreciated, there's tonnes of YouTube videos, online articles and everything where they make shit crazy complicated to increase yield and potency, but I just want to try something very basic and so I'm asking for advice with that in mind.

I would suggest having a look at what Freedom Farms has to offer, their soil is the choice of many and simplifies things so much.

No worries, you ask and we'll see where we can help. Other than the soil, a ph pen and some nutrients and you'll be flying. Don't make the basic mistakes of over watering, feed at the correct PH, keep it simple initially and don't be shy to ask.

 

Keep us posted.

Ah.... here's this thread, so I got the freedom soil and the breathable potting bag, I think I might just pop in tomorrow......

 

Is it ok to sommer plant directly in that bag? I'll probably stick it outside and hope for the best....

 

Or I can first put it in small seed starter container....

Evening there CLD, you can soak in water for 24 hours and then into soil or into paper towel till you see a tap root then into soil it depends on which you are most comfortable with, myself I do the soak and into soil thing or paper towels first depends on my mood....haha

Depending on your end pot size I would consider planting up in stages. Like a 1litre pot to 10 litre to 20 litre. This gives you the opportunity to get a nice root ball going. You also would need to water less at a time and will allow you to flush the soil from time to time to negate the threat of salt build up in the soil. In other words every second or third feed ensure you have some decent run off to ensure salt build up is washed away. All good to perhaps have 3 feeds in a row and one just plain water to assist. Glad to see your journey has began, good luck

:'( no... Nothing yet.... I put it in water for 24 hrs and both seeds sank, put it in the soil and gave water and checked daily if comes up and the soil isn't dried up or too wet. Don't know how much longer I must give it... I do have some more seeds of both....

Did the seeds sink immediately after being placed in the water? Usually that's a bad sign

The seeds both floated and sank after touching them when the 24 hrs was up...

 

I'm just gonna go full out on all my seeds that I have

 

Maybe they went bad, but I think I'll order those autos from biltong and buds if nothing happens

Sup okes. I hope the seeds didn't burn to death. Which medium did you get from Freedom farms? I know the premium organic soil is too strong for seedlings. Says so on the site and the bag.

I've used the premium mix for seedlings and clones without issue. Just feed water

I use it for clones too and they are fine. Seedlings, I wouldn't risk it. I've had seeds die in said medium...

Suppose I've been luck then lol. Attached are some seedlings currently in their premium mix. Do do however give the soil a good flush before using them for seeds58ac479ab3bdbfbc2d491e6d27def8db.jpg

I've chatted to the oke from biltong and buds, he reckons it can still germinate, but said I should actually keep it in water next time till it cracks and then  only do the paper towel thing till the tap root shoots out. He's actually really nice and I can't wait to get hold of his seeds when he gets  his new shipment arrives. I feel kinda silly not knowing his name......  I told him you guys recommended him.

It's starting!

Thanks guys! It's in the FF and I only give tap water at the moment, but read what you said about nutrients and filter water, I'll buy the nutrients and monitoring pens and stuff on payday, but so glad to see at least one seed come up, my other seeds are all still soaking. 

 

I signed up to flickr with an anonymous email, still struggling to get it to show the pics, been trying since Friday to share this pic, but I'm now just going to try plainly pasting the url without the image codes which hasn't been helpful.....

Why do you not post directly to the site if I may ask

Dunno, think the site's data capabilities has some bad juju..... keeps on blocking cause: file size....

 

I haven't got around to it, but will take new pics tonight.

 

P.S. keep us posted on today's concourt, I can only catch the highlights tonight

It's because your  images are massive resolutions, downsample/scale them.
