t0ad's adventure in gardening... a grow journal.
    #129622 - 10/06/08 07:18 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hey all.

Nothing special, 5 seeds from bag of some decent weed came across recently; planted in peat pods and three days later 2" sprouts.  Will include basic pictures soon.

STEP 1:  Seedling
========================================

Went to the Depot of Homes & purchased those jiffy caps (peat pods) which i think are great to start off w/ your seeds.  A neat trick is taking a matchbox, removing the rough side (strike pad) & gluing it on the inside of the box.  place seeds inside and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.  This can help thin the edge of the seed allowing for more water penetration.

Subjected such seeds in peat pods, added warm water & closed the lid and watch it create its own greenhouse effect.. OOOooOOooo.... AaaaaAaaaahhh...  then into rockwool




Step 2:  Vegetation
========================================

(1) 85W CFL + (2) 32W T8  = for right now, just to get the seedlings started on they're journey to eventual happiness.  Cups holding seedlings in special box w/ reflective material so enough light bounces around.  Expect veggie stage in a week


Steps to COME!
========================================
The actual "vegetation" period will last about two - three weeks + 6-7 expected flowering times.

Flowering Stage : HPS 400W.  I have included my closet plans in a separate thread of this forum.

Thanks for viewing, check back for updates ... probably just weekly or randomly to answer any questions or to respond to comments to better my grow.  It's been a while since I've had such luck :frown:




and the last time i grew weed it looked like this... in my bing (mini bong)

That's what I was wondering, haha. I have already decided that once I get my setup figured out I am going to just find a way to get feminized seeds.

online 8-)  feminized if i remember correctly are when a light/enviromentally stressed plant turns hermy it pollinates itself, has to be a female first on the gene pool though.

or spend $$$ online.  If I get more males than fems in this run again I'm sticking to fem seeds

i feel like i had stunted they're growth and they have finally reverted back to normal growth.  This is about . . . two weeks old?  From here is the actual veggie stage now i have 2-3 sets of norm leaves & i had started juicin' them 2-3 days ago, and they are doing much happier since.  I came home from work and it smelled like weed in my grow room :smile:  new growth is expanding in size and a lush green.  So far, so good!

looking at a week and a half ago (11/22 when i updated the 1st post as my restart date) to now, they have grown exponentially, so i don't feel as if i have dangered their health too bad. :smile:

just an update.  After changing the tea mix the plants have been reacting very positively. 

i'd say a week and a half and i'm going to start to put 12/12.  plants should have increased in size about 4x by then since this is the period of rapid growth...  I am going to purchase some mylar, clean the top of the tub & mylar the surface to reflect light up as I only have a 400W HPS.  I am going to be building my grown screen soon to help w/ reflectivity & light disbursement.  For now anyway.  I have a lot of extra cash coming to me in the next few weeks so i'll be making a way to get the odor to be displaced when it comes to the ripening stage. . . . assuming i have at least one femm out of the now 4 plants.  I removed one, it was suffering an failing on life support and I Felt that even if it survived I wouldn't want to smoke its bud if it were a femm, bad genes at that point. 

I hope to at least get 1 or 2 of these four.  Last time i had 3 plants were all males, so, i was not happy.


Has anyone ever used the product ONA?  Odor Neutralizing Agent...  it's a gel that is supposed to help mask up other smells

so I have switched over to my hps light (24hrs), it has an agromax bulb with supposed +30% blue spectrum. But how much blue is that as these are reddish lights???  30% of standard can still mean squat!  Still have my 85w CFL on to just add to the mix.  Hoping to get these guys to stretch, dont want to vegg them much longer than a week or so.  keepen'em short & gonna make a small screen for them.  I figured, hey, i'll switch to the more intense, lumenated light for a week and a half and the plant will start to think about node production and onto preflowering we go!
:awesome:

found a MH-to-HPS conversion bulb online  $32 super excited (hooray 1000bulbs.com), asked for it for xmas from my old lady lol we can see where my priorities are better bud growth and a stronger veg stage.  Been happy with CFLs but fiending for MH. :smile:  gonna pick up some flowering nutes & other things this weekend.

well, hopefully right after work would have to make it to the hydro shop before 6  which can be done.  Next paycheck as it gets into the flowering stage I am going to get the soluble tri-pack from FF which is Open Sesame, Cha Ching & Beastie Bloomz along with a standard treatment of Big Bloom & Tiger Bloom.  Im gonna have some sexy ladies! 

I hope i get at least 2 / 4 females.  I'd hope and love for them all!! but, realistic I deserve at least 2 females from the last time god flipped me off and gave me 3 males.  You would figure at least one would be female, and i was sure that it was!  until i saw two...then three staminates on one node bundled together and eventually extend outward freaking balls!!!!!

will take pictures tomorrow, the babies have doubled in size.

I've begun to notice nodes or primordial staminates on the plants (pre flowers) --- I am actually unhappy at this stage that this has occurred, i feel it may be due to some unwanted stress the plants have had.  They seem to be flourishing now, but i have begun to notice possible zinc deficiencies & a leaf with necrotic scars. I contribute this all to ph irregularity; this problem is fixed, though, so i dont fear the worse.  I come home and a plant had wilted, gave him a big boost of nutes from the top and was set; i get i need to get some sprayers in the tub afterall, was hoping to not have to.

Plants have the feeding roots established in the tub now, this may be my biggest issue yet but as i had said, problem solved.

I have seen a big issue with zinc absorption this entire time, my new leaves come out curled up and twisted but as they grow out they turn to normal.  I have noticed nitrogen deficiencies as well mainly starting with the oldest leaves first, which can be related to a lack of zinc, as zinc is vital for nitrogen absorption.  I had this problem once before and i had corrected it, but i guess I will have to recalculate the formula inside the tub.  Zinc doesn't appear to be on the thin side of any spectrum, so i dont see why zinc would have that issue and the rest of my plant be a bright green.

NICE!  I am eager to see the difference a week of HID produces.  So you're going to use one 1,000 watt bulb?  Keep up the good work my friend!

i just went ahead and ph balanced everything.  The excitement im having right now is endless, i only bought ph UP as i had ph Down already, and without a ph meter / drops / strips i was afraid to burn my plants to death, so, i had found a solution and i expect a full recovery within days. :smile:
