This is my first grow journal, so if there's something I'm leaving out, let me know.
I'm getting back into growing meds for my wife again after several years and I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it.

The strains:
Bubblisious, Ganesh Spirit, Grape Skunk, Cheesus* and Chocolope*. (* from seed)

The cuttings were started in vermiculite On a warming shelf Attached File  IMG_0108.jpg   222.24KB   12 downloads Attached File  IMG_0109.jpg   347.6KB   17 downloads
The hormone used was Garden Safe Take Root
100% success with rooting and after 14 days had nice 1"+ root ball and were ready for 5" pots.

The soil used is Attached File  IMG_0110.jpg   1002.36KB   17 downloads Attached File  IMG_0111.jpg   410.26KB   17 downloads

I'm supplementing with Botanicare Pro Grow, Pro Bloom and Cal Mag.
I'm also adding some liquid minerals we take ourselves, but wont do that more than a couple times.

Lighting is 400w HPS and 4 105w CFL at the corners. Attached File  IMG_0096.jpg   430.73KB   18 downloads

Also using a home made carbon filter for 6' duct for exhaust. Attached File  IMG_0097.jpg   359.34KB   20 downloads

The clones and seedlings were potted on 10.3.13 in 5" pots. Attached File  IMG_0088.jpg   251.7KB   16 downloads
One Ganesh Spirit and the Grape Skunk were given to me in 4" pots, so I potted them in 5" at the same time as the others.

Today 10.29.13 all were transplanted to 5 gal buckets with drain rock in the bottom. Attached File  IMG_0092.jpg   432.15KB   15 downloads Attached File  IMG_0094.jpg   429.45KB   12 downloads

I'll post separate pics of the plants later.

Peace,
E

Yes indeed. Oh and speaking of bugs, the nematodes I bought seemed to had gotten rid of the mites! Definately reccomend giving it a try, along with some leaf spraying of something non toxic. Here are some close-ups. My plan it to let them go a couple of weeks in the 5s then flower. I also plan to "harvest" then re-veg for a quicker second crop.

Looks like a nice mix but remember that the Indica's will be shorter and wider rhan the Sativa's and will likely need to be raised to keep an even canopy.

Well... I'll like growing it at least. MJ doesn't agree with my "crazy brain", the meds are not for me. Although I'll do a few drops of tincture for my glaucoma and TMJ, but I'll do right brfore bed and try to fall asleep before it hits - I'm such a lightweight! lol

Yeah, it'd be nice if they were all similar or I had a bigger grow space. I'll move the sativas to the walls also. You start off with a couple different seeds then you get a couple cuttings and then... I wish there was a way to long term store cuttings for later grows.


Thanks!,

I did notice yesterday that a couple plants looked like they were getting too much N. Unfortunately it was after I up-potted the into 5gal and watered them in with all the supplements. I'll use just PH'ed water for the next couple of waterings. I don't think it's going to be a problem - maybe just slow things down a bit. I think the soil has enough and i was just making it a little too much with the Pro Grow. Is there any thing else I should do, or not do? E

With high N just do the flush, you should/might only get a bit of leaf burn on the edges but considering it's only a one time oops it probably won't even be noticable.

Would that also wash out a lot of the goodness from the soil, i.e. from worm castings, bat guano, chicken manure, my nematodes ect? How much water to flush the 5 gal? Thanks, E

Yep, anything water soluble but like I said, unless it's really burning the leaves it shouldn't be a problem.

I guess i missunderstood what you meant by flush. I thought you were talking about running "x" times the container volume of water thru the pot. Would you use the CFLs as well as the 400w HPS when flowering, or turn off the full specktrum CFLs? The 400w HPS seemed enough before - probable not optimum though. Thanks, ND! E

More light (to a certain point) is always better.

Here is the weekly update; All the plants are looking good with maybe the Chocolope that has some clawing and edge rolling - it may get worse before it gets better. I watered twice since last week, once just around the base of the plants until it ran out the pots. The second time was today and am soaking the whole pot. Both time PH'ed water with Cal-Mag (no nites).

Yeah, When they were in small pots I let them get nice a light/dry before I watered them - to promote healthy root system.
I'm thinking maybe Chocolope is more sensitive to N than some of the othere plants, but some of them have fairly dark green leaves as well.

I think I'll go ahead and flip them today. Time's a wastin' and J may run out of meds.
