Posted 18 August 2012 - 07:40 PM

This is grow will be all fem’d seeds. Same set up as before but with a little twist learning hempy.

My Setup:
1. Grow Medium: Canna Coco Coir (pre-washed and fine consistency)
2. Water: Tap (central water) pH's at 7.9 out of the tap (ph down is my goooood friend)
3. Temps/Humidity: Will document when needed
4. Lighting: 400W hps w/cool tube & Ballast

5. Ventilation: Dayton 273 blower/exhaust
33 - 13 Carbon Canfilter
2 fans to circulate air in the tent

6. Nutrients: (changing my lineup from the Canna line to GH Maxi Series)
GH MaxiGro
GH MaxiBloom
Canna PK 13-14 (have to find out if this is needed when doing hempy and the new nutes)
Canna Rhizotonic (gotta check my notes if needed)
Sludge Remover
Molasses
(this is a whole different approach doing it hempy style…so a learning curve for sure and need to check on a few things….then document as I go…..yep get ready for brain picking again KD!!)

7. Indoor/Outdoor: Indoor
Veg Tent 16X16X 36 and light in veg was 175 MH w/reflector
Flower Tent 20DeepX36WideX63Tall (am looking into a bigger tent down the line…but for now will be using what I have used in the past)

* added a 2nd tent along the way, old flower tent is now the veg tent and new tent for flower is approx 21"deep, 47" wide, 58" height

I’ve heard such good things on going the hempy route and am already knowing its less costly than what I was using before…, I am a creature of habit but now its time to learn more!

Seeds:
La Pipa de la Pau (great peeps truly….. they’ll help you in any way possible.. and with a smile too!
Destroyer – Cannabiogen
Prozak – Medical Seeds (started 2)
Fruit Automatic (a freebie from a past order with Attitude)

The Plan:
Keep them alive thru to harvest!!
Learn Hempy

Still Need To Do:
Prep the pots for hempy….got my soldering iron ready to make the hole in each, 2” above base of pail for drainage (will measure repeatedly till I got it all lined up on each pot)

Glue a length of hose or pvc pipe to the inside of the pots…. So I can check the amount of water in the resevoir with a dowel or something (still have a week or two to get it done lol)

Hang a calendar so I can keep track easily with their progress and feedings and prob’s if any (or should I say when there are probs lol)

Wash off the rocks that will be in the resevoir (not up to that right now but will get it done soooonish….usually the veg tent can hold the little girls for about 2 wks max and then they’ll shift over to the big tent for flowering.

8/14 they hit the water for a 24hr soak
8/15 Fruit Automatic showed its pretty head (but needed a little help losing its hat)
8/16 All 4 are above ground (yippee)
8/17 Lightly watered w/ph’d tap

All were put in my little 5 X 5 pots which will usually last for approximately 2 weeks and then get relocated to their final home in 2 gallon pails…..one up pot and that’s it. Am looking forward to doing this (sorta/kinda lol) and seeing if it is not only easier for me to handle, but also to see if I have better results! The Fruit Automatic is going to stay in the small veg tent thru to flower so that the other 3 have enough space to do what they need to do. It’ll be interesting to see if I can possibly go a day longer between feedings/waterings…. And I still need to figure out an easier way to get the plants to drain into something without the lifting and removing plants from the tent. Had a wire shelf in at one point with trays underneath, but that was a p.i.t.a., so am still figuring things on that one!

I am also going to do my best at cloning from them….. I’ve put it off long enough and if I can skip the seedling stage then even better!

Get ready for some serious brain picking KD….. have already misplaced or lost all my notes from the dead laptop… so will be looking for reminders on what you’ve already said. If you see anything done incorrectly just jump in and let me know! I just got around to ordering the Maxi Series today (yep last minute as always).

Light Feed (using what I had on hand till the new nutes are received in a few days)
prep'd 1 gal tap
2.9ml CannaA
2.9ml CannaB
5ml Rhizo
few drops of cal mag
Ph'd to 5.76

Pics of the tiny babies:
Fruit Auto with her helmet still on lol....fixed it without any damage!

It feels so darn good to have coco back under my fingernails! Didn't realize how much I had missed it.... no more unplanned breaks... gotta keep it going :)

KD if you are peeking in..... what ph range am I looking for when they get up potted into the hempy pails?

So far so good.... they live & I smile :)

Hugs all around!
:::am going to try my best not to chicken out of doing hempy... may be rinsing rocks tomorrow... maybe...... and I'll try and keep the journal under 100 pages!!!::::

and Cloning must be attacked this grow.... I can clone off fem'd right?

ok got a joint with my name written all over it and its calling my name..... come smoke me pweeeeeze ha ha

UP DA FIRST TIME HEMPY BUCKETEERS.. bit like D'Artagnan but no swordies... now thinking if the 3 musketeers were billy bullshitters cus how many times did they go bang bang? I cant remember a single occassion.. even in da last film they was giving it large against proper muskerteers who had muskets and they had swords.. so why the feck are the called the 3 musteteers.. fecking charlatans lmao.. woot woot and all for one and all that.. :)

Nice baby pics Poet i'm gonna pull up a chair for this grow too.I would send some good karma for an all girl grow but you already took care of the so the karma is for a happy healthy grow.Oh and guess what I turned my other lappie on the one I split water on and it now works.So I was thinking I don't have the money to ship it to you but if you do it's yours.It might need a new hard drive because you have to press enter on a DOS looking page but when you do it starts right up.I even played a few games on make sure it was working.It will be cheaper than buying a new one at the most a new HD.If I could afford it I would send it so if you can it's yours and it's less than 6 months old.If ya want to check it out it's a Compaq Presario CQ57-410US Notebook PC.

I'll just roll with whatever you think on it lol
Hugs!!! up da hempy!

Hey medi :)
oooohhh dynamite + coco.... sounds yum! have you grown in coco before? I do love my coco.... couldn't imagine lifting soil. Funny you said you wanted to see the difference, because I was going to do 2 in hempy and one in just coco.... but will keep it all hempy so I don't mix my head up!
Hugs!

Will be tagging along to watch the show,if you don't mind.I have been thinking of doing hempy here pretty soon myself.
Hugs,
Blue

It wouldn't be a journal if you weren't along for the journey Blue!!! rofl..... the only way I'm going to be able to do this hempy is by picking KD's brain lol.... so hopefully he'll be checking in (I'm sure he will) and letting me know when I do somehting wrong or bizarro!
Hugs!

Good to see you growing again Poet and I think you'll do well with Hempy. As for pH you treat it like hydro with a pH between 5.6-6.0 with 5.7 as your target.

Hey bonghead! glad you joined the party! KD is teaching me the ropes with hempy.....I'm just going to try and follow his directions :) Are you doing hydro now and then may try coco? I love growing in coco, but am always looking to make things easier and hopefully this will do the trick! Only problem I had with all coco had nothing to do with growing and everything to do with price.... nowhere local to get the one I use and the shipping was double the price of the actual 50 lb bag!!! (Canna Coco Coir) and no precharging/prewashing.... so was easy! will get over to visit your journal.... you have one right?
hugs!

Got it... so ph is basically the same.
? When I'm mixing a gallon of water (when I get the new nutes... any day now) do I still add CalMag in the beginning....and do I continue to use the Rhizotonic (root growth thingy) I only added a small amount of the Rhizo on the first 1/2 dose feed and well you can see above what I used, and will prob do the same tonite (assuming they are dry)....I know there are lots of notes in pm's so willl re-look!

:wacko: glad you're here to keep me straight!

I couldn't resist the urge to go peek in on the girls....... had thought they'd be drier and had prep'd a gallon w/ light nutes (few drops calmag, 3mlA, 3mlB, 5Rhizo) but they were still damp and will do a feed/watering tomorrow. am pleased to see they aren't real leggy yet, and have the fan blowing on them to strengthen up the stems.

ooooh how I missed visiting the tent!!!

so far no fatalities lol..... nice and green and healthy!!!

::::I can be rediculous with my feedings (totally admit it)... I usually make sure the water is kinda room temp... but since I had already mixed the batch and they were still damp....grrrrr... might be my first time letting a water jug sit overnite.. going to mean it'll be cool temp water and think it'll make 'em shocky... I always end up making a new fresh batch! told ya... rediculous no?::::

So glad to see you up and running with a journal again, Poet! There's been a certain degree of quiet on the boards without your energy and daily entries. I'm wishing you great karma on this one and big healthy girls at the end of it all. Hope the hempy style fits you and serves you well! Hugs, Scoob

Thanks for stopping by everyone!!! Forgot to write down that they got fed/watered last night with the prep'd gallon of water & nutes.

all 4 girls + 2L feed 8/22

one of the prozak is looking a little off in color... would that mean I should start increasing the Calmag a bit more (was only doing a 1/2 tsp in one gallon to start)... or just increase everything up a bit more. Was doing a light feed cut in half the amts listed in the cannagardening guide.

let me know!
:::scooby am trying to keep it to posting every 2 days or so.... ha ha as if that'll work!:::
