Welcome to my New Year Grow Challenge journal! This year I will be growing Hindu Kush, Sharpei(friends from Virginia, and Alpen Gleaux(high alpine genetics) in a 4x4 tent. More info to come soon just wanted to get the journal up and running. Seeds dropping into water at midnight, then into coco solo cups then local soil mix

Growing with a gorilla grow tent 4x4

veg under a cheap shop light

flower under 600w Gm4h+v2 (light won in a give away, will be here before flip)

currently no exhaust set up, have a couple fans blowing out and circulating the air. 
Two days ago I started buffering some coco for the seedlings. My plan is to use coco in the solo cups, then once they are rooted we’ll move them into a local soil mix

Cannabis Grow 5316A19D 235F 457F 8FA7 E5C9641E128C

will go solo cup -> 1gal soil -> 5gal soil 

using Earth Juice nutrients

side note tent is in garage so won’t need to worry about light leak however I’m hoping Mother Nature will be good to me and not get too cold for the babies.

By 1/2 10pm cst both of my Sharpei’s popped
Currently, 1/3 8pm I put the Alpen Gleaux 1 and Sharpei 1 & 2 into solo cups with buffered coco. Ambient temps are 75.
the Alpen Gleaux 2 and Hindu Kush have yet to popped.
Only coming issue is in my tent, temps drop to high 50’s(f) at night. Considering moving hps in early for some heat or perhaps vegging inside then flowering outside, in a month or so I assume temps will be warmer.
havent tracked rh so far.
Fed with 30ml after planting
2ml/gal calmag

Moved all the babies to the tent, 6-8 inches below the light.

1/15  8pm 20ml 56f scratched skin off of bbk so she can open

1/16 8pm 20ml 56f

bbk opened up

sharpei 1&2, Alpen Gleaux are all working on second node 

1/17 7pm 62f

had to go up to 30ml each to get a runoff

sharpei 1&2 have a root showing out the bottom

hindu Kush and bbk working on 1st node 

cleaned out 12 gal shoe box with bleach and water, got a niiiice rinse then dried

2 bags of my super soil went into the box,  used 1 gal of tap water to hydrate and start the microbe process. I took hand watering to the next lever by literally using my hand to disperse trickles of water for a nice even distribution. 
closed up the bin and put in a low light area

1/18 8pm 65f 30ml

alpen Gleaux has a couple roots popping out the bottom

i will probably wait until 3rd node is starting to come out for the transplant, giving the soil enough time to really activate.

Watered with tap water, didn’t measure exactly how much water. Was half a solo cup so around 200ml

Accidentally dropped Sharpei 2 a little... hope that doesn’t slow her down at all.

Made new calmag water for the little ones, went down to 2ml/gal as they are looking kinda sad. 30ml each
