NYGC Blues: Blueberry

Ordered seeds, should be here by the 1st. Very much looking forward to learning.

I'll be growing in a 4x4 grow room framed out by me in my shed. Environmentally controlled by a window ac unit and a small space heater controlled by a set of Inkbird temp and humidity controllers.

I have 2 Optic 1 54w COB lights and a Viparspectra 450 led (draws 300watts).

I am a very new grower, in the middle of my first grow. I'm using Nature's Living Soil now, but would be open for suggestions on other living soil mixes.

Planted seed into a jiffypod that was pre-planted into a 10 gallon bottom feed bed planter.

Nature's Living Soil mixed with fox farms ocean forest.

Ok. ... I popped these seeds 30 min ago. I'm old, i need to go to bed.

Day 1.

Let us remember those who are in prohibition states...

This is a felony.... the fight is still being fought.

She seems to be moving along nicely. Vented the humidity dome (took off for photo).

Planted a cover crop of clover and rye from Build-A-Soil, they're loving the environment.

light leaks...

Today I had the day off, so I took the opportunity to check for light leaks at 12 PM when I have the timer scheduled to turn out the lights.

As I watched the lights go out as scheduled, I gave myself the rather uncomfortable task of squeezing my large body into this rather small and crowded space, not to mention completely dark..... or so I thought.

As I locked the door behind me I checked the seal around the door, all seems good. But as I turned my head I was amazed to see a rather bright blue light shining from my humidifier. I had placed black tape over it when I first placed it into my space. But never checked without the lights on. The led behind the tape was still illuminating the white body.

I took it out, dryed it off and opened it up and disconnected the led.

  • 6 days from sprout
  • Plant height: 2 1/2"
  • Average Temperature: 75° f
  • Average Relative Humidity: 50%

This is the first time I've used these beds, and I'm concerned how the top soil does not seem to dry out. I feel this might just be me as a new grower as we tend to over water. I've removed a couple hand fulls of the straw mulch, as the cover crop is growing rapidly. Any advice on this issue would be welcome.

I will not fill Reservoir till the top dries out some more.

 

As a new grower my reference as to how much growth there should be in the first week is still a bit of a mystery, but she seems to be steadily growing.

Growth continues to be vigorous. I topped last week, and her growth never slowed.

ADVICE NEEDED

Should I top again, or low stress train from this point?

Still steadily growing after topping. Did some LST today (last photo).

Will not be flipping for at least two weeks.

Any advice on defoliation? just thinking of cleaning the very bottom leaves?

Flipped to 12/12 today. I waited a little bit longer than I would have liked but had some signs of a Calcium deficiency. Wanted to make sure she was in good health before flipping.

After her first 12 hour nap she seems to have grown an inch overnight.

As I've progressed in this journey, I'm truly seeing the wonder of not only this plant, but also the earth that gave it to us. And as I learn what goes on in the soil beneath our feet, I realize how fragile we all are. Are we beneficial to the earth.... or are we not? What is the planet's IPM system?

Smoke it up!

I'm the Terpgiant

She is flowering nicely.

I had just recently heard that red stems could be a sign of a phosphorus deficiency? (You can see some in the photo above.) I haven't seen any signs of any other issues, growth has been incredible, noticed a inch and a half stretch over night. Sould I be worried?

Peace and love to all.
