Himalayan Gold and White Widow, 2x125W CFL. First Grow! [1 of 2 harvested]
    #274864 - 09/03/09 11:06 AM (7 years, 3 months ago)

I received my feminized Greenhouse seeds last week. Ordered a mixed bag with 5 color coded seeds. My plan was to grow one plant, since my space is limited, 55x55x160 cm. However, I decided to germinate two seeds, since I figured all might not sprout.

However, four days later my pots looked like this:



I'm growing these in a nutrient low soil for seedlings containing:

55% low humidified peat moss
35% high humidified peat moss
10% sand

Added nutes (g/m^3):
Nitrogen: 125
P: 60
K: 135
Mg: 240
Ca: 1800
S: 70
B: 0.3
Cu: 1.1
Fe: 0.8
Mn: 1.4
Mo: 1.8
Zn: 0.4
pH of soil is 5.6 - 6.4

I'm planing to transplant them to the following soil mix later:

60% low humidified peat moss
35% high humidified peat moss
5% sand

which I'll mix with about 10% perlit and maybe some vermeculit(?).

This soil contains the following nuts (g/m^3):
Nitrogen: 210
P: 105
K: 225
Ca: 2000
Mg: 250
S: 120
B: 0.7
Cu: 2.8
Fe: 5.9
Mn: 3.6
Mo: 3.3
Zn: 1.6

and should have a pH of 5.6 - 6.4.

I haven't got a pH-meter yet, so I haven't check the pH of my water. But I would guess it's about 7-7.8.

I'll repot in two 11 liters pots, that should just fit in my cabinet.

Day 5




Day 6






I have been having these under one 125W 2700K CFL and one 125W 6400K CFL, but was recommended to unplug the red-spectrum one to lower my temps some (was 28-30 C in there with lights on). So for now they'll be under just the one 125W CFL.

I'm really excited! Maybe a bit too much so, my girlfriend is getting a bit jealous from my shift of attention :wink:

[edit]
Took some pictures of my setup!
Everything is computer controlled. Although I have everything on manual control at the moment (lights on normal timer). I have a usb cable in there too, for connecting a web camera. This way, if I'm on vacation I can monitor and control the whole setup remotely :smile:

Best of luck. I have nothing but gut good to say about green house seeds, I'm sure these plants will not let you down.

Give her a look of shock and awe, like this...:chong:

Let her know that the first few weeks are critical! That she should think of the seedlings as little, defenseless babies that need your care!

Then give her a look JUST like this,...:yoda2:

Get another cfl in there, it will double your veg. It doesn't need to be 125w. Just divide the wattage into smaller bulbs, the temp will stay cooler dividing the watts into seperate circuits.

The red light is all right for all around sunlight UV's, but is not necassary. The plant in veg only uses the blue light range. Wait until flowering for the hps.

:ganja:
peace

Greenhouse Seed Co. comes highly recommended.  They have a very good reputation for acquiring the best strains on the planet.  They are very dedicated to traveling the globe and searching for the best old-world strains and landraces.  Some examples would be Kush's from the Hindu Kush region and Awesome trippy Sativas from Africa, to the densest Indica around from Alaska.  These are just some examples of their ongoing determination to be the best, and it shows.

Anyways it looks like you are doing ok so far.  Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

Also, WELCOME TO THE GROWERY!

Thanks for the feedback guys, and thanks for the welcome :smile:

I'll see if I can pick up some more CFL to stuff in there. I've got a couple of UV-lights (probably UVA) laying around, maybe I could use them?
[edit] Okay, I researched some more and came to the conclusion that the UVA lights are out of the question. Guess I'll have to go buy some more CFLs somewhere.

I think the yellowing/lime greening has reduced some since yestarday :thumbup:

Day 7

Overview of my babies home. Used a couple of CDs to get them close to the light. Finally those CDs are good for something.


I think the HG is looking better today, it is being outgrown by WW though.


This baby is looking really healthy and growing fast(er than the HG)!

I should get my pH-meter next week. I'm a bit concerned with watering them with water of unknown pH.

Also, could someone experienced comment on the growth speed here. It's been a couple of hours from 1 week of growth, and as you can see, the leaf span of the first real leafs is 4-4.5 cm. It feels like they are growing slowly, but then again, it might just be because I look at them like 10 times a day and as they still are babies, a big percentage in increase in size looks smaller to me eye.

I'll switch to a weekly update from now, not too flood this thread with more or less identical pictures :smile:

Peace and love!

I couldn't resist updating the log today again :smile: WW is growing at an impressive rate, and the limegreenish color on the HG is gone now.

Day 8

HG is not growing much at all, stalled? Maybe the pot is too small? It's about 8cm wide and 8cm tall.


WW has totally stopped growing in height and is putting all energy into the leafs, which has grown over 1cm in a day!

I hope both of these babies are going to fit in my closet.

Day 9
I woke up this morning to check on my babies, and noticed that HG had not grown at all since yesterday. So I decided to transplant her (hopefully) to a bigger pot. I also took the brave decision to transplant her to a more nutrient rich soil.

My theory to why she stopped growing is that the soil, which had a pH of 6.5 initially, got its pH increased because of my probably high pH water. This probably depleted the pH buffer in the small amount of soil (2.5dl), while the WW which has a lot more soil still has a lower pH. So if my theory is correct, WW should stop growing soon too :frown: I'll hopefully have that pH-meter before that happens though, and I might even transplant to the final 11 liter pots.


So, here she is in her new pot. Grow baby grow!

I received my pH-meter today and measured my tap water pH, 8.0 - 8.2! So I've now prepared some water with lime concentrate, pH down to 6.4. I hope my soil will level out to around 6.5 in a couple of days, before it hurts the plants.

Day 13
It's been almost two weeks now and my babies are looking healthy!

I transplanted them to 11 liters pots yesterday since the roots were coming out of the bottom of the old pots. I'm amazed how fast the roots grew.


I wish I had another one of them veg.-lights in that empty socket :frown: Think I might plug my cfl-flower-lamp in there soon, it has to be better than nothing.


HG has some catch up to do.


WW is doing really well. Time to start LST soon perhaps?

Indeed! I can't wait to see these little girls grow to ladies! I really want to invest in a better system now, HPS and bigger grow room, but because of security issues that's not possible :frown: My 125W CFLs will have to do for now.

I really hate these stupid laws, let me grow whatever plants I want, let me do whatever I want with my body and mind - it is not your business Mr. Government!

Day 20
So, it has been one week since last update, and my lovelings are doing great.


A side by side from last week.

I've also installed two CPU-fans to cool down the lights, which now seems to have a peek temperature of 50C (that is on the glass surface of the bulb). They also provide some nice breeze for the plants.

Thanks for all the encouraging words guys! And now for the weekly update!

Day 27
HG has been doing really great and has almost grown to the height of WW. I decided it was time to play some bondage with my plants, and here's the results.


Before


After


Closeups

I'll try to get them even lower in 6 hours when the lights are back on again. They should be a bit more thirsty then, and that will hopefully make it easier not to snap them, which would be tragic to say the least :/

It's been a month since I planted my two seeds now! So far it has been a smooth ride. Without further a due, I bring you...

Day 30

They're so bushy you can't see the stem anymore :smile:


Himalayan Gold top. Beautiful if I may say so myself!
