my first grow, so far so good, mmm heady budz... *COMPLETED*
    #18069 - 05/03/08 03:06 AM (8 years, 7 months ago)

this is my first attempt at serious growing cannabis. a friend gave me 7 different bagseed. 6 of 1 strain and 1 of another. 5 of them germinated, 1 showed to be a male at 31 days. out of the 4 left 3 are definately females and one is still undefined.

because it's my first grow i wanted to go small and quick.

the setup is 2 roughneck tubs, half assedly spray painted white on the inside. with 2 26w cfls in the blue spectrum for veg. and 4 50w cfls in the red spectrum for flower.

seeds were sprouted on march 17. on april 17 they were put on 12/12.

on one plant i tried LST (the undefined sex one), another plant i did a mini scrog, another i topped and another i tried to supercrop but it didn't work and the bracnh healed back up straight.

one plant suffered from some yellowing on the older leaves. those were pruned and it was lightly flushed.

today i can definately see some pistils on 3 of them.

i have a 4" booster duct fan hooked up to a homemade carbon scrubber, about 12 inches long, 6" wide. 2 x 4" intake holes and a small circulation fan inside.

so far so good.

opinions/help and constructive criticism encouraged.

Awesome! :smile: It looks like you have fun growing and experimenting around. What's really cool is you gave me a great idea with those roughneck tubs, to be used for clones and seedlings and the like. :thumbup:

Good job so far buddy, I really like your use of the Macro in those last couple pictures :smile:

They look like they're in very early flower, right? I can't say for sure, but I think that plant in the 5th picture might be male....

thanks guys. my camera is actually pretty shitty it took a while to get some focused pics. the 5th pic is the male that showed his nuts at day 31. one day after going to 12/12

i am excited about my first pistils. if i can get my new grow hut up i will transfer the grow into there.

    #19224 - 05/04/08 04:52 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

yesterday i noticed some burns on a plant and decided to just build my new grow hut which will soon accommodate my hps. it's running the 4 CFLs now.

so i went to lowes, got some 1x2s and 1x3s and 4x4ft of plywood. i made a plywood top and bottom and a fairly sturdy frame with the 1x3s and 1x2s. then i installed 2 6" flanges for the reflector cooling, 1 4" flange for the carbon scrubber and 2 4" flanges for intake.

the measurements are 33" W x 20" D x 60" H. those measurements were taken to fit a space in my closet or else i would have gone deeper. also just right to fit through the closet door. although after i installed the flanges (all on the front), it wouldn't fit thru the door, so i had to bend all of them in and also remove my closet door to get the sucker in.

i got a 4" duct booster fan for the scrubber, and will get a 6" booster fan for the reflector. i also have a 4" circulation fan in there. it seems to be working and temps usually don't go over 80 too often, but this is with CFLs...

anyhow, i think the plants are much happier now and can even stretch oout some more.

so all of them came from a really good bagseed. and the pistils just showed a few days ago. it looks more indica. how many weeks should i expect to wait from now?

your plants look healthy so far :thumbup:

hopefully you get a good number of females out of those

3/4 females so far. there's technically 2 strains in there, maybe the one that hasn't showed sex is a different strain?

i have a 400w HPS on the way. do you think it's an easy transition from the CFLs to an HPS or will they get burnt? i'm kinda curious to see how weel they'd finish with only CFLs but on the other hand i want to use the hPs and get bigger buds...

return your 400 and get a 600w youll be much happier and get better results. and fuck the fluros for the finish just veg and clone under them. rooted plants should have no problem under the Hps just keep it a foot or so a way UNLESS its not an air cooled hood then just stick yer hand between plant and light and feel for it.

don't bother growing only CFL, you won't be happy with the result, your yields will suck, bud density will be crap, and you'll have a host of other problems for sure.

If anything supplement your HPS with the CFL's, use the CFL's to help light the lower and side areas of the plant which don't get as much light as the top. That's the best way i can think of for you to utilize the CFL's throughout your entire grow.

by next week i should have the biggest improvement, the 400w super hps with a cooltube. got some sour diesel sprouts in the works too and some clones coming my way in a few weeks. so many more grow logs to come... although it's my first time and i made some mistakes, it feels very good to be growing my own medicine.:mushroom2:

Butters: looking forward to see a grow log! we need to get these forums going

Since you went with the cooltube you really should have went with 600 watts, but there's no turning back now I'm sure. :hehehe:

yea i know. it's a hard decision to make, but it allows me to grow in smaller spaces which i like. i shall be doing some outdoor plants this summer to satisfy my desire to see christmas tree-like plants

now with the new setup i get better temps (around 70ºF). also more space for them to strech. my lst attempt failed because i did it too late, so i took it out and just tied the main stem to a bamboo stake so the under buds could get some light.

everything seems to be going well so far, i already learned a whole lot, but one thing that still bothers me is the possibility of hermaphroditism. how soon can i tell? does anyone see any male preflowers in my pics? and also are bagseed more likely to be hermies?

i'm thinking the flowering might take longer than i expected, so i took some clones which i am trying to root and reveg. btw, if have seeds that came from a bag of sour diesel, can i say they are sour diesel or are they bagseed? i just don't get the whole seed thing yet.
