Week 1 of Veg + 1st Low Stress Training!
What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for Week 1 of vegetation for Cody's Agent Orange beginner grow series. So yeah this week we are going to continue with the watering and nutrient schedule that we've been on, we are going to be keeping that same light schedule, we may eventually turn up the power on the lighting just a bit. But we will take that one by ear. And then other than that we might do some LST training in the near future as well, possibly this week. But again you just want to take it day by day. Alright see you at now that you guys know what we are doing and today's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!
Alright hey guys here we are 24 hours later after the transplant, and as you can see the plants have taken really well to it. They don't look stressed out and they look normal and healthy and thriving so good results and it has been 24 hours also since their first watering. And the soil still looks just a little damp and I felt it with my finger and it is a little damp underneath the surface so today we are just going to be doing a good old misting.
And you are just going to keep doing this to two three times a day like you have been. Some downward, looks good. And then as far as the lighting guys, we are going to keep it where it asks right now for a little bit, but as these guys start to grow more and more we are going to turn up the power just a little bit gradually. Or I guess we will see you here for the next update.
Okay guys here we are again a day later, the plants are looking good let's check the soil. It is still moist just beneath the surface or we are not going to water them, we are just going to do a misting today. And it looks like in a week, we are going to be able to do some low-stress training on these guys. But we will play that by ear and we will see how these guys do for the next week. All right we will see you next time guys.
Hey guys here we are the three of the week, we are getting ready to do our second plain watering for these plants since the first nutrient feeding. They are looking really good today, it seems like they are getting more nodes going and another set of leaves each. So we are going to give them some water now, we will give them a misting as well afterwards but for now we're just giving them a watering.
And remember we want to do three of these plain waterings per nutrient feeding. So do one nutrients feeding and then follow it with three of these playing waterings. And then another nutrient feeding and so on. And you don't want to get this wet all the way to the edge of the pot, but you do want to get it decently far out because that is going to encourage root growth. Okay I think that's fair, and then we will do one over here and I think I need to get some more water so I'll be right back with you guys. All right guys so that concludes the watering and we will be back in 24 hours for day 4 of the week, later.
Hey guys here we are they for of the week, so let's check the plants and see how they are doing. And as you can see they are doing awesome, they are in great shape they are really perky and healthy and there was no discoloration. They seem to be responding well to the water we gave them yesterday, and remember that is the second watering we have done since the first nutrients feeding. So today the soil is looking pretty damp still from the top so we are just going to be doing a misting. Alright guys we will see you next time.
Alright hey guys with your we are day 5 of the week, let's check these guys out and see how they are doing. And right now it looks like they are continually remaining healthy, they are growing really tall, obviously some new nodes here on both plants. The soil still looks pretty moist, so we are just going to do a missing again today. So by day one of next week, these guys should be ready for some low-stress training. So let's go ahead and give them a quick misting. And then I wanted to show you guys, my grow Journal here. I think it is really important to keep one of these because I find it is kind of, I don't know it's kind of difficult to remember what you did yesterday.
And so this is a way to you know it with shorthand text just remind yourself exactly what you did that day. And this is going to become extremely helpful when the watering cycle starts incorporating a nutrients more and more. So it is just a good way of keeping organized, and keeping yourself from repeating certain things or forgetting to do certain things. And so one thing we did also as we turn the light up 5% today just to match the growth of the plants. And so something like that is what you would want to record in your Journal as well as want to record in your Journal as well as sayings like temperature, humidity and all sorts of things like temperature, humidity all sorts of things. Watering, misting, anything you do to the plants. Alright so that's it for today guys, a pretty simple one and we will see you next time.
Hey guys here we are they 6 of the week, and let's check out the plants and see how they are doing. So they are looking really great, the soil is pretty, you know it's a little moist but it is pretty dry at this point so we will go ahead and do a watering. This will be the third time we are doing a plain watering since we did the first round of nutrients, so let me just get the cap off here. And then we are not going to be soaking it because like I said the soil looks like it was doing okay, it wasn't like super dry. And you will see now that the soil is getting better at absorbing now that it is not so dry.
And as always you want to get a little bit towards the edge just to encourage that root growth out words, okay so I would say that is good and I basically used a whole bottle this time. Like there is basically none left, so up whole bottle this time and it looks pretty good. So they are thriving and alive and we will see you guys next time.
Hey guys, here we are four day 7 of the week, let's check out the plants and see how they are doing. So they are looking awesome, super healthy and good vegetative growth so we are going to do some LST today. So I am just going to start up here towards the top and you want to use the three-finger technique. Which means take two fingers on one side and then your thumb on the other and just bend the plant over your thumb, using those two index fingers or those two fingers you don't have two index fingers. And just start coax you get in that direction and apparently New Growth is going to be the most flexible so you want to start close to the top cuz obviously that's where the newest growth is going to be.
Okay so take your anchor here, and basically like an inch from the top, you are going to wrap this around it. and just take your time be super gentle here, that's good. And then gently pull it, all right so we have it bent over there pretty well. It looks like almost a 90 degree angle, and it is well secured in one of those holes on the side of the airpot, or what is it called, airpot yeah. So we are going to get the second planet doing it's Alice tea and then we will get back with you.
Hey guys okay so now that we have that second plant done with its LST, we just have a couple things to do before we are all done for today. So for one, just make sure your leaves of the plant now that they are bending over or not in the soil because that can lead to problems later on. So as best as you can just keep those leaves off of the soil or you know kind of draped over the edges of the pot as you see this one over here is. And then the other thing is you want to make sure to give the plants a misting, reward them after a difficult training. All right so that is it for today guys and we will see you next time.
Alright GreenBox Growers, so that concludes Week 1 of vegetation for the agent orange beginner grow series by Cody. And now that we have done that first round of LST, we are going to see a lot of New Rapid growth and all directions so that will be fun to watch. And just a reminder you guys always keep track of things, especially like your first round of LST in your grow Journal. I can't tell you how much it has helped me, just keeping track of things helps me get and the Rhythm a lot quicker and it reminds you a lot more of what you are doing like the mistings, you know how long you should water Etc. And yeah it is also really useful to look back at your old journals from previous grows just to see how you fixed different issues that you might experience with your current grow. So we will be back shortly with that week 2 of Vegetation video, and until then…
