Hey there new grower! Are you excited to grow your first plant? Ready to start harvesting pounds? Well, hold up there homie, you have to be able to get through a full grow from seed to harvest and drying before you can start slangin them bows. Lets makes sure you get off to a good start by avoiding some of these common rookie mistakes bruh.

Rookie mistake #1 Read read read!
The best thing you can do before you ever start growing is reading up and learning. A lot of the questions asked in this section are questions that have been discussed time and time again. This is the boring part for some and I get it, reading a book isn't on the top of the list of things do(getting stoned and pimpin hoes ranks pretty high up there though

Rookie mistake #2 Planning
Since you skipped over the studying part you're not all that familiar with a proper grow room environment(with your non-reading ass). So you didn't take the time to go over what you needed and how to set it all up correctly. There are a lot of things to consider here. Things like heat and air exchange, plant count, vertical grow space, and lets not forget smell 🤯

Rookie mistake #3 Over-fucking-watering
Now that you got a little corner of your closet all decked out with a 14w cfl that you stole from the kitchen, a cut up milk jug with miracle-grow soil, and tin foil taped to the walls you're going hard! So you have to make sure this little bitch goes hard too. Time to pour a gallon of water on half a gallon of soil at least 3-4 times a week, that'll do it! NO NO and NO! The soil does NOT need to be fully saturated 24/7! Go back to mistake #1 and read up on watering you asshole🖕

Rookie mistake #4 Over-fucking-loving
The plant is wilting and the leaves aren't as green as they were yesterday so you flip the fuck out! You start seeing all these deficiencies. Is it P? No, maybe it Ca? Maybe I burnt it? Must be time for a flush! Yea, lets dump MORE water on it to clean out all that nasty shit in the soil,🙄 You go through all this stuff in your head when its probably just over watered. If you stopped trying to figure out what's wrong with it and backed off the watering, everything would've been fine. Which leads to the next mistake.

Rookie mistake #5 Lack of patience
Because you over loved the plant, you never gave it time to fully recover before you created another problem. Most of the time you have to just let the poor plant grow. We get in our own way sometimes by being impatient. Lack of patience can fuck you in more ways then one when it comes to growing. There is not one single stage of growing weed that can be rushed from seedling to vegging to flowering to harvest to drying and finally curing. You should not skimp out on any of those 6 stages of growing.

Reading this will NOT make you a master grower, but I do hope it helps a new grower avoid a few headaches on their journey to slangin bows and pimpin hoes 😜 Growing Cannabis can be a very rewarding experience, but there are some that have gave it up because they made it more difficult than it needed to be.

What do you spray them with? And do you do it under the lights?
PH'ed tap water and 3ml of clonex solution per quart. Not sure the Clonex solution is necessary but it has so much good stuff in it i figured it can't hurt. And yes i spray under the lights all the time (fluorescent light). When they go to the flower room with the big lights i do spray them lightly every morning for about two weeks then none after that.

LOL....I guess my sarcasm didn't make it through on that one.....I haven't misted a plant since my first couple of grows when I was growing under shop lights in early '90. Living in CO/in this dry environment....I just let shit roll. Fly or die, bitches. Heehee....

That's one of the fun parts of this hobby...everybody rolls a bit differently and it all works out.......... most of the time...LOL.

Older thread, but worth the bump to the top of the page!

Adding to the above ... too many new growers have this idea that we can "make it grow faster" with all the extra love and attention. There is a much better concept to try to buy into that will make your grow go much smoother. Our role as the grower is to provide the environment where the plant will thrive (lighting, controlled temperature and RH, soil at the proper pH and rich in nutrients etc).

Here's what all new growers need to remember ...

1) You can't force mother nature. Your plant is going to grow only as fast as it's genetics will allow it. You can slow growth down with improper care ... but you can't speed it's growth up beyond it's genetics.

2) Pay attention to what your new growth looks like because old growth isn't going to heal. The plant is going to put it's energy into replacing those leaves.

3) Don't over-water ... read the OP's original post ...
