New medical grower
Hello and Merry Christmas to y'all. I'm a new medical legal grower in Missouri. And out of all the site's I've read information from about growing, all the videos I've watched. I'm really glad I found this site. As I've already experienced some problems within my first grow and only at day 33, 32, and day 22 with 4 different plants. Read some bad info from Grower's choice were I obtained my seeds from. Their site says to keep your humidity at 75% with veg stage. Which has only caused difficulties, first by discovering I had Fungas Gnat's. Followed the advice given 4 days ago, and added diatomaceous earth to the first so many inches of the soil, some sticky traps to catch any. And going to let them dry out to a slight wilt showing. Then had one of my Gorilla Glue Autoflowers showing a calcium deficiency. Which it started showing two weeks ago right before my Cal mag came in the mail. Slowly been trimming off the big leaves that show signs with the brown rust spots. It's beginning to have a lot of new small growth and so far looking pretty good. Though normally where you skip your nutrients every other watering, I was thinking about adding the Cal mag again to this plants next watering.
I used to grow a little bit outdoors. Which threw research I have found out is completely different than indoors. So many variables that can affect your growth and your yields with indoor grows. So I appreciate y'all having this site and forum, and looking forward to becoming a good indoor grower from experienced people with skipping all the misinformation that you go through searching so many different site's online, and unfortunately that pertains to a lot of different subjects.
Hey there Med, nice to have you. I'm a MED grower up in Canada. And yeah, 75% seems a bit much IMO..maybe for seedlings but not in veg. I usually run round 55%, if I can keep it there... too much water in the air will slow the plant's respiration, as it needs to be able to 'exhale'. Plus, like you said, Fungus Gnats (and other nastier things) tend to prefer a nice moist environment to live and breed in so, best not to have excess if you can help it. I grow in supersoil, and have had fungus gnats pretty much perpetually, in various concentrations. I find predatory nematodes (Steinernema feltia) work extremely well for my situation.. maybe you could try and source some nearby.
And yes, you are 100% correct regarding outdoors - whole different ball game, haha. I ran 8 plants over this past summer and while my inputs were less (rainwater, sunlight, etc.), there were a lot of other things to consider (bugs, washing the dirty bud, hail storms, etc.). Good times though.
We have all kinds of growers here tho - exclusively indoor hydro ppl, lotsa coco, ppl like myself who run soil in both indoor/outdoor, and some exclusively outdoor guys so, no matter what we should have someone who can help out in some way or another.. ?
Welcome to Percy's! You definitely found the right place to up ones growing knowledge and the bonus is..its a great community here ?

The only down side to indoor is no 10foot monsters like outdoors ?

Welcome to the house of fun m8
Hey med and welcome, you get amazing advice here, I’m new myself but the guys have put me right every step so far and I’ve had a fair few booboos along the road, I’m on my third grow now and haven’t got them past seedling stage with any of the previous attempts but ?? this will be the one to succeed. And it will be all Down to this page.
Best of luck with the grow buddy and Merry Christmas ?
Thanks. I should get some new pics. The one's I have on my phone are Dec 11. Is this first one. Definitely not going to get the size I wanted for my first indoor. But hopefully I'll get there.
This is a couple days later of my one that's at day 33 now. A Mexican Haze. Which with the first reply, the smallest is another MH that was germinated late due to some others not germinating. The other two at day 32 now, are supposed to Gorilla Glue Autoflowers. But I don't think they're the same strain. With close up pics it might show better. Though growing outdoors a time or two, so much says different strain. Makes me cautious of getting seeds from Grower's Choice again. But I liked the fact it was an easy transaction, as some of the other companies are not. A lot of different payment methods I don't understand. LOL. I hope I'm adding these pics in the right place. I'll get some new ones tommorow.
Thanks. I have two green thumbs, I grow a lot of flowers/plants, or used to grow more. LOL. So hopefully skipping out so much misinformation, i can get fully lined out and get some good growing going. But I still have to get supplies just for having a veg area only. Right now just a 8 × 9' room set up, and then that again.
Best wishes to ya
