Hi guys! Long time smoker, first time grower here. My state finally legalized it for recreational use!!
A little background: My mom, sister, and girlfriend have all had medical use cards for a while. I probably could have gotten one myself but honestly it was cheaper for me to get it from friends. I smoke around 1lb of flower per year myself, and the ladies of my life prefer the edibles. Now that it’s legal, I decided to take up a new hobby, and save myself and my family some cash!
My girlfriend and I both enjoy gardening, and last year we really got into it. For a while there food was pretty scarce in the stores, and the nurseries were all shut down at the beginning of gardening season. So, I started buying some seeds and building an indoor grow room to get our garden going. I never dreamed I’d be growing weed in there! Legally!!
Our grow room started out in a small “bedroom” - which was really more like a large walk in closet. This year we moved it to the basement, into a larger 12x12 room we had down there.
The racks and shop light LEDs along this wall were the “old” grow room:
After the move to the basement, we added a pair of 5x5 tents (veg + flower), some budget lights from Amazon, and the rest of the necessary goodies:
But I guess those pics will have to wait! As a noob I can only upload one at a time!
So I guess I’ll get on to my noob question. I started some NYC Diesel and Lemon Kush seeds - from Homegrown of course! - a little over two weeks ago. The plants are pushing out their 4th node, but they’re only around 4 inches tall. Stems are getting sturdier but still only about 1/16” thick.
Too early to top? They’re photoperiods of course.
