5 bag seeds>3 sprouts>1 seedling>1 vegging female>1 Flowering Female
    #195323 - 02/12/09 11:41 PM (7 years, 9 months ago)







Well I got lucky with this one.  Started with 5 random old bagseeds in early January.  Soaked in paper towels and 3 germinated.  Seed with the longest taproot was the only survivor.  By mid January I had one nice seedling.

I had no grow equipment; just a few small pots, extra light fixtures, and casing mix from mushroom cultivation.  So, I made a soil mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.  The seedling was doing alright at first, but started to show strong signs of nitrogen and general nutrient deficiency.  All I had available was the cheapest Miracle Grow liquid 8-7-6.  Transplanted and fed it a light dose.  Growth perked up, but a week later leaves began to get really yellow all over.  Transplanted to a much larger pot for the last time and fed a heavy dose of the 8-7-6 Miracle Grow (nasty stuff to smoke).  This resulted in a rapid greening of the whole plant, much to my satisfaction.
Pics are at a month or so of vegging; haven't needed to water since the last transplant a week ago.

I did all this with only $13 invested in the large pot, because I'm flat broke :thumbdown:.  My very good friend is lending me his light and organic nutes (just got them).

Nodes just began alternating and female preflowers appeared today.  I plan on vegging for another week or two to get the most out of this one plant.  I'm using a 400w hps, 6" can fan, aluminium foil on the floor & walls, and two small fans for circulation.  Temps are constant around 80deg F and humidity 10-15% (can't get it higher, is that bad?).  Closet is 3'x2'x7'.  Light is on 24/0 for now.  Any tips?

ps.  I cut a 6" hole in my ceiling with a small flat screwdriver, and had 2 feet of blown in insulation rain down on my head :crazy:.

Looking good. That is a very bushy plant. You might want to try decreasing the temps a bit by going 20/4 but 80 isn't horrid. As for your humidity, it would be better for your growth rate to get it up but again, low humidity will not kill her. (You will have to water more frequently though.)

All in all, :thumbup:

Good luck!

That plant is a monster! I can't help but feel though that something about her leaf margins is slightly off. What are the temps like in there? How often do you feed? Have you checked the Ph at all?

By leaf margins do you mean leaf size or their placement/density?

Temps are definitely an issue for me, down to 60F at night (lights off) up to 80F late afternoon.  My studio apartment is so small that I have to keep the window cracked for air intake (venting into the attic).  This brings in very cold, dry air from outside that I can barely keep up with heating & humidifying.

I've been feeding about every three days, changing constantly with growth and humidity/temp levels.  pH is probably alright, I'm using neutral tap water and buffered nutrients.  Although the nutes are probably lacking too.  I only have an all purpose fertilizer (2-1-2) and "tricarboxylic acids" buffer.
These two:

http://www.cornucopiaplus.com/tricarb.html
I might be able to get a flowering-specific fertilizer from this line if my buddy still has some left.

update: 1 wk 1 day into 12/12




btw, a while ago I could upload pics straight from my camera, now I have to reduce the image size by 50-75% on another website first.  Did the growery change to a 512kb pic limit or remove the auto-resizer?  (that ? is for anyone who knows)

Day 16 of flowering.  Plant is a hermie, male flowers all over.  Was probably a seed from hermie mother plant.

Day 28 of flowering, in the tub for a flush before feeding.  Buds are small so far, I hope they gain some mass before harvest.
