Cherry Slyder Mini-Grow (update june 3rd) *COMPLETED*
    #10281 - 04/23/08 12:03 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

* Type of Genetics-- Unknown, strain was a gift from a friend of a local cultivator

* Growth Medium(s)- FF:OF mixed with FF:Light Warrior
* Time Span- Came from clones.  Vegged for a few weeks, now on day 12 of 12/12 cycle
* Light Source(s) and Cycles- 600w HPS on 12/12
* Temperatures and Humidity Levels- 75F w/lights off 80-84F with lights on.  RH ranges from 40-48%
* Nutrient Combinations and Feeding Cycles- FF:Big bloom at 4 tbsp/gal  Sweet + heavy bloom at (right now) 1 tsp/gal.  Feed with big bloom every watering, feed with the S+HB every third watering right now
* Pruning Techniques- Removed some lower growth due to mildew infection
* Problems and How You Solved Them- Powdery Mildew, Neem oil and pruning killed the infection
* Harvest & Curing Methods- Wet trim, hang individual branches til dry, cure in glass jars.

Right now i have 5 plants in flower.  The strain was a gift from a friend, originally i had about 12 clones but only 5 made the cut.  I used a 50/50 mix of OF to LW because OF has proven to be pretty damn hot in the past and i wanted more control over the nutrient uptake.  Right now im growing in a 4x4 hydro hut, added an intake fan to improve air circulation and received a free inline fan from a friend to run my exhaust.  Temps still manage to remain in the 80's for now, i have a remote AC unit but i hate to run it because it's expensive and requires me to vent more hot air.

Everything has gone pretty smoothly, i flipped the lights when the plants hit about 10-12 inches, in about a week or so they've stretched another 6 at least.  Started seeing the beginnings of bud formation of day 3 of flowering, they're now becoming more pronounced and should start filling out here by the end of next week.  Already there is a noticeable smell when you open the door to my grow area, you can't smell it in the house but it's instantly apparent when you open the door.  Time for a scrubber i guess.  Dealt with my first powdery mildew infection.  Low temps + poor circulation + high RH * Low growth on the plant = headache.  Some neem oil and deft movements from my trimmers killed off the problem for now.  A quick dip of the clipped, affected, leaves in bleach killed off the mold spores (on the leaves at least) and a slight dampening of the soil with some neem spray (hopefully) killed off any mold spores on the soil surface.  It's been about a week since the infection and i see no signs of the infection returning.  I'll keep my fingers crossed :wink:

Not much else to report on, i'll get some pics up later when i have some more time.  Things are pretty boring right now because it's so early in the cycle.  Give it another two weeks and things will pick up.  I got a chance to smoke the final product and if i can get it to look half as nice as the stuff i smoked, i'll be a really happy person come june :laugh:

healthy looking plants.

have you ever tried tying them over to get them to branch out?

yes sir, didn't have the time to train though. I wanted to be in and out of flowering by the end of may so it cut my veg time to almost nothing. As it is im already two weeks behind schedule, but, i wasn't planning on moving out until the earliest end of june. So as soon as the clones rooted and put out a little bit of new growth i transplanted, vegged for another week or so, then popped em into 12/12.

I also wanted to see how well the strain performed when i kept the plants small since that's direction i want to go in the future. Id rather have a bunch of small, trained, plants then a few massive ladies.

those will be some nice long colas tho!

it's got a decent amount of room, if i fill it i'll get enough herb to last me a few months at the least. Grow area is 4x4x7. I also have a 4x8x7 version of the hydro hut but it's not in use due to it's massive size lol.

Day 17/18 update.

Not much is going on, buds are coming in nicely, plants have been doing pretty well. The larger ladies are showing sign of an N deficiency so i'll be giving them a nice boost of nutes tonight. Some heavy bloom and cal mag should do the trick. The little one is doing very well, once it got over the initial N deficiency it has stayed nice and green. Gave them a plain watering on sat but i think im going to skip that in the future. This week they'll get two doses of heavy bloom + sweet at full strength for soil, full strength big bloom all three waterings, full strength top max all three waterings, and one dose of full strength cal mag for the large ladies. Trichrome production is picking up quickly. All the calyxes and small leaves are getting nice and sugary. Larger fan leaves are starting to pick up a little as well. Powdery mildew came back this weekend so i used a small paintbrush and some neem oil solution to "paint" the affected leaves. This way i won't spray the new buds with neem oil and i'll also prevent the neem oil from burning all the leaves on the plant. I removed some lower bud sites from two ladies because they were not doing well. I also removed some small, yellowed, fan leaves that had been hit with the mildew. Didn't seem worth it to try and save them.

Anyways, here's some pics, nothing too impressive.
