I am beginning my first ever grow! Picked up a beauty of a clone for $20 up in Tyendinaga, Ontario.

I saw the clones as soon as I walked into the dispensary on 4/20 and I had to grab one

20190420 154133 (1)

I also got an OG Kush for my buddy back in the city, I might be able to hustle him onto the forum as well. 

SAM 4548

Strain: Mataro Blue (50:50 Hybrid)

SAM 4550

Medium: Going to be using regular soil for this grow, similar to the organic living green (I don't have a pic right now)

Size of Grow Area: As big as this plant can get. Only doing one plant right now, sort of an experimental first-grow for me, see what works well, what doesn't.

Lighting: 600w Sunlike LED ( https://amzn.to/2WgWSlm )

Pot: Black Fabric Smart Pot (5 Gallons) ( https://amzn.to/2VmyPUJ )

Other Equipment: Fan

Nutrients: Not 100% sure yet

Plans For The Grow: I plan to see how big my first plant can get. In Canada, there is not really any need to keep the smell under wraps or to worry too much about your neighbours seeing that you have a plant or two in your house. I am planning on giving her a little bit of natural sunlight every day once she has grown a bit more under the light which I am installing on Monday.

 

Stay tuned, once I get back to her tonight, I will do some more pics because I bet she has grown in the past 3 days since I have seen her

Oh yes I forgot to mention I was able to sample the end product from the mother plant and this is one of my favourite day-time strains. It reminds me a lot of Blue Diesel if anyone has ever tried that and never had Mataro Blue

Cheers Macky, Fu, and Buddy! I'm so excited, I have never been able to have a plant before so I was just looking at it for about 2 hours when I first bought it home

You will spend a lot more than 2 hours 'just looking at it' during her life mate, believe me 😂😂 it's an amazing hobby, you get lost for hours in admiration 😋

My first plant was in a 5gallon pot so dont be shocked when that shit gets massive.. mine got to 15 oz of one, i was thinking 2-3 at start..   

Went very badly tho. thin buds. if it went thick couldnt of imagined how much of 1 plant would of been, amazing haul regardless for my first tho very happy just went to big for my space. loads of issues came with that. alot of top burning and stressing 🙁 ruined the quality!

At Least four mate, if you give her a good veg, you could fower her now and get an ounce or so off her lol. four week veg, should get 4/5 ounce of her, maybe more, depends on feed, medium, light, all that kind of thing. But id aim for four with her..... or veg her for a couple of months, and then youll get over ten lol

getting them to slow down on the stretch was the main issue!  when they said it double/triple in size within last month. they're not kidding..

Hey bud, just checking out your light. its a 150w panel huh. just my opinion but your gonna be limited to about 60-90cm square using just that one light alone for flowering. its got a comparable rating of a 1000w HPS par out put, but draw is still 150w thats what its really using and putting out. its will cover one to 2 plants but you may just be a lil disappointed at the end if your looking to fill a big space with that light finishing plant. 

 

you can only play it by ear but ill keep an eye on ya dude 😉

Hey Gmo, cheers for the advice mate! I am not too phased about how big she gets TBH, I just want to do my first grow and then learn more from that so I can do a bigger one when I have the space 🙂 

 

Really appreciate any sort of advice though, so thank you, ( I also had a long chat with Macky before I purchased the light, he said it will be ok for what I am looking to achieve)

 

I'm transplanting her into the 5gallon pot today after her sleep, and she'll get a few hours of natural sunlight  before I put her under this new light, will add a pic later today too, as she has definitely grown a bit

so, today I transplanted her into her new home and also set her up for a permanent home 🙂 

I realized this picture doesn't have the bottom tray set up I threw under it to give some aeration at the bottom, but you get the gist i'm sure

looking very good dude. leaves praying to the light nicely too, a very good sign that the pot up went effortlessly 😀 

 

slow and steady as she goes and it'll be topping and training before you know it
