What's up everybody thanks for checking out my first grow journal, this is also my very first grow so I definitely need a lot of help. My temps have been up & down and so has my humidity, plus I think my 3 plants may have powdery mildew and one of them has some really weird growth going on, I'll post pics later and we can get into that then. Its been a little over a week since they've sprouted, so I'll start this journal right then break everything down into sections and explain what I've done so far.

GROW ROOM/SETUP
I have a lighthouse hydro grow tent, it's 2.5'x2.5'x7', it's located in a walk in closet in my bedroom. I have a 4" inline fan and carbon filter, but it's currently not up and running since the hot air gets vented into the closet it doesn't help My temps so I figured I would just save it till flowering. I had a humidifier going for a little while but it was taken my temps even higher, so I cut it off and just left the reservoir setting in the tent which has helped a little bit. Now my RH stays about 45% with lights on and around 50% with lights off. I have the light 36" from the plant tops, my temps usually don't go over 85° with lights on and drop to about 75° with lights off. I keep the closet door shut to keep the RH up and to stay stealthy, because of that I have to keep the tent unzipped and open when the light is on to keep temps under 85°.

GERMINATION
I chose the 6 best looking seeds and threw them in a bowl of water for about 18hrs, nothing happened so I put them in rapid rooters. A couple days later(3-23) the first seed sprouted and within 18-24hrs 2 more sprouted. 2 of the 6 seeds cracked but no new growth after that(I may have dampened them off not sure tho), and 1 seed didn't crack open at all. I named my 3 seedlings Groot, Mary Jane, and Scarlett. They sat in the rr's for about 18hrs after they sprouted, all 3 had tap roots coming out the bottom and almost from underneath.

Placed in new homes
I placed the seedlings in 3gl pots on 3-24 this will be their final pot. I am using happy frog soil and ideal 420 soil, since 420 soil can be too hot for seeds and seedlings I put it in the bottom half of the pots and filled them up with happy frog soil. I mixed each pot at different ratios for a few reasons 1. I don't know how long it will take the roots to grow into the 420 soil, 2. I don't know how much of the 420 soil the plants will need, 3. I want to save as much of the 420 soil for future grows with high end seeds. I didn't measure anything I just eyeballed it, Groot was placed in about a 50/50 mix, MJ was placed in about a 70/30 mix(hf/420 soil), and SC was placed in about a 85/15 maybe 80/20 mix. After I filled the pots I gave top of the soil a good misting and have been watering every 2-3 days since.

Well that's it for now I'll get back on later to explain and post pics showing the issues and problems I'm having with these plants.​
