Hello

 

I am a first time grower. And i live far up in the northern hemisphere. So i have decided to try to grow both outside and inside this summer. Therfore i have choosen 2 diffrent strains. 1 is the Peyote critical and the other one is 8 ball kush.

Being that 8 ball kush should only be growing up to 80cm i choose this one to try inside. I have started small and bought a grow tent, and then it started to add up. Lights, ballast, fan, pots, nutritions, ph-meter and ect ect. But still not to expensive, about 250usd.

The peyote critical is in the first week now and i will plant it outside when its about 1 month old.

Here in the summer we have about 18 hours of sunlight and tempratures should be around 15-20c. Planing to plant it next to a river so it should have enough water naturally. 

I germinated the the first 8ball seed first in wet paper towels for 3 days, nothing happend. Then i put it in a glass of clean mountain river water and after 24 hours it had sunk to the bottom.After that it had come out a little and i the put it in soil. Shortly after that it rose up.

The peyote critical i put in water for 24 hours and it sunk and after that in the soil. After 4 days it had come up but it was still struggeling to get out of the shell. So i sprinkeld water on the shell to get it softer and after 2 hours i gently helped it out of the shell. 

I have them now in my window and putting them both soon into the grow tent with stronger light. Right now i have just put the in soil with a homemade small greenhouse made out of plastic bottles, where i have cut off the bottom and unscrewed the top. 

I feed them 0.1 L of water in the moorning. Using river water wich does not contain clorine, and i also microwawe the water, Because i seen that done in an episode of Mythbusters and the plants being watered with microwawed water was getting bigger faster then the plants that was watered with un-microwawed water.

Both plants now is 6 days in the soil and the peyote is about 8cm high while 8 ball is about 4cm. 

Have them both in compost soil in a 1 L pot.

Lovely pics mate! I think you should get them under some proper light with a fan blowing at them now though. Other wise thy will stretch like crazy and fall over

@macky Hello yes...i got two options for lights. One is a 250w hps lamp and the other one is a 36w 6500k LED light. I though maybe it was a good idea for the first week just for them to be in the sun. Wich one do you think i should use first and how high above them should the light hang?

Good luck Berserk. Very nice looking babies. Normally the light should stay 30/40 cm above the canopy.

Taking them from outdoors into the house is risky mate, you can bring lots of bugs in that way and they are a bitch to get rid of./Just keep them inside to prevent that from happening. 

I would just stick with the 250w HPS tbf, Good to use a Metal halide during veg if you can, but the HPS will do fine. LED is too touch and go, could be a good light, could be a bad one.
