    2. how often do u water ur plants on average?

    well you are 16.. so your options only consist of growing outdoors, unless you want to be a little punk and jeopardize everything your parents ever worked for..

    ya no problem, kid.. I did give you advice.. Coming from someone who has grown indoors for 4 seasons.. It is not something you can just do in your closet and hide from your parents!!

    As a side note, if you really want to try and fail.. then go to www.overgrow.com and read the FAQ section all the way through! Read, ask questions later..

    here is a great soil list that is 15-20 bucks.. organic.. and can be purchased at walmart.. BOG AKA Bushy Old Grower uses this mix..

    Sam's Choice, Magic Earth with fertilizer

    Mix 2/3 cup of blood meal and 2/3 cup of bone meal into each 3 gal. pot

    2 tbsp. of dry lime

    10% perlite

    First, watering also depends on the plants stage. If it is still a seedling you should water it every three to five days..or yes until the top is dry.

    Second, great soil=great plant..Don't be too cheap when it comes to soil.
    I would probably use 100% organic soil. You also have to keep in mind if you are doing a hydro or soil grow...in this case soil.

    You NEED lights. I would advise 250 W HPS lights. But if this is your first grow then that may be a little expensive...so you could just use 80 W Florous..for the first of the seedling life..(about 2 weeks of its life).

    Now your strain. I would advise NORTHERN BERRY. This is an EXCELLENT strain for newb growers due to its stability. It can handle a little stress.

    After you have been growing for a while, and get more xp. then you can move on to harder to grow plants. ( blueberry for example)

    WELL GOOD LUCK!!!

    Peace In complete harmony.

    1. Regular soil (organic soil not Miracle Gro shit), mix 10% perlite, 1 cup blood meal and 1 cup bone meal to every 5 gallons of soil.

    2. When soil is dry.

    3. Why don't you choose one yourself and be creative. I mean come on are you to lazy to choose what strain to grow?

    well i mean first of all there r like 100000 different kinds of seeds and some r 150 dollars and some are 10 dollars and i dont wanna go spend 50 bux on seeds that r really sensitive then fuk up my whole crop and then get nothing out of it
     
  13. use bat guana-bat shit-and use a predominantly indica species of plant cuz it is more likely to repel the pests and stupid mites and shit that want to chomp on the leaves and leave your bud severly damaged

    Peace In complete harmony.

    Northern Lights is a newbie plant. You could go with that. Or why not some Lifesaver by BOG? You gotta love white buds. :D

    Northern Lights....or Northern Berry.

    HOW ARE YOU PLANNING ON GERMING THESE SEEDS..?
     
  17. Jetblack

    Jetblack Senior Member

    if by germing u mean by making them "sprout" im going to use the wet paper towels meathod
     
  18. blazer326

    blazer326 Member

    That is an ok method..but i think the best method is putting them in a cup of warm water and let it sit in a warm place for 12-24 hrs. But you can use the paper towel method if you want.

    o really? i have never ead about or heard of that warm water method is it better?
     
  20. blazer326

    Honestly, yes. I think the warm water wethod is the best. But that just me, other ppl think its the worst and others think its an 'ok' method.

    If you have at least 2-5 seeds, try different methods at the same time. Like you could try the towel method and the warm water method at once.

    I have tried the towel and I really didn't get anything to sprout. But maybe i did it wrong, who knows.
