My First Grow

Hey guys just thought Id share my first grow with you all. I am new to all this and invested a lot of time studying about everything I needed to know about growing. I have a spare bedroom that I am using as my grow room. The LED lights that I invested in are the HIGROW 600 W 5W lights and the duct fan system I am using is the AC Infinity T6. I have it taped onto my screen so it doesn't suck in bugs but it cools the hot air brought from outside to the inside grow area so it's temperature controlled. I'm gonna invest in another light after theyre about 1 week away from being put into flowering because the space they will occupy once attached to the tomato ring with 8 main colas will be substantial and I really don't want 3 plants about 4 once the the little seedling catches up to be fighting for the light when they are in flowering. I have 4 different strains growing in my tent. Chemdawg, Durban Poison, Trainwreck, and the seedling that had a late start cause they were 1 year old seeds and was really hard germinating is the Amnesia Haze. I named them all according to the first letter of the strain so theres Ashley, Courtney, Danni, and Tilly and I also play music for them, it's just my personal preference ranging from opera to sonatas to soothing plant music. :) Here are some pics and if anyone has questions or advice, it'll be gladly welcomed. All the plants are developing wonderfully, I haven't run into any problems yet knock on wood, leaves are greener and healthier than ever, and they are loving my light. I feel a great harvest coming this fall and I will keep you all updated.

Nice clean setup and very healthy and happy looking plants! Great job, thanks for sharing and welcome to FC 👍🌿
I can't wait to see these in bloom! 🌻
One question, what's the bag hanging in the grow tent - I'm guessing for humidity?

Progress thus far. 3 Main plants have grown the 4th node working towards 5 now, will be topping at 6. Just added silica to my nutrient regiment and also a root booster. Looking forward to seeing results this coming week.

As you can see, theres no droopiness, they are being fed accordingly, I I tend to go about 2 days and half with one watering, then allow the soil not to be too try but just dry enough so I know my roots are getting the oxygen they need. Thought I would have a problem knowing how to water when I first started but I think I got it down packed.

Heres some Pics, I transplanted the seedling to her final pot, and shes doing pretty well. Adjust another hanger to the lights in the middle so I can start adjusting the distance between the plants and the light, and also 4 additional ones Im deciding to keep on the edges incase the rope breaks, really don't want an accident like I've been seeing in other forums where people's lights have fallen on their plants.

gonna wait till the two mains branch out more and gonna use the slim soft ties to bind them down to the trunk. I really want the Flex muscle look that the manifold grows into instead of just a round shape when other growers just tie them down with soft wire to the sides of the pot. So really gonna see how much I can push my mains without breaking into them.

So this the progress thus far. Danny seems to be growing slowly, unsymmetrically but surely she is growing. Hopefully the other main catches up. Tilly is doing pretty damn good for the size she is and shes dealing with topping quite well. But Courtney omgosh Courtney is my strongest one, shes literally been beasting thru being topped and her new mains have just been shooting out faster than the other two but gahdamn she gives me a boner. Cant wait to top them the 2nd time hopefully soon. Also I've taken the two tops when I topped just Danny and Courtney, and I decided I wanted to clone them, so far its been 2 days later and the leaves are still looking good, no wilting. I used my own rooting solution that I bought along with some distilled water and I'm just waiting for them to root. As for Ashley, I'm not gonna be able to train her the same way because by the time the other plants go into 12/12 Im gonna have to put her under 12/12 as well so I'm hoping to get her as big as I can.
