Hefe's back. 250w MH/HPS closet LST jungle (COMPLETED)
    #492108 - 10/26/10 11:42 PM (6 years, 1 month ago)

Seeds:
-4 heady bagseed (one supposedly Maui Wowie) - All 4 beautiful females.
-6 midgrade bagseed - 5 were female and force flowered from seed.

Soil/Nutes:
-Fox Farm Ocean Forest in 3gal square pots (heady) and 16oz solo cups (midgrade).
-One of the heady bagseed was grown in shitty $2 soil from Kmart as a test to show the benefits of quality soil (You can really see the difference).
-Pureblend Pro Grow / Pureblend Pro Bloom / Liquid Karma

Lighting:
-250w MH for ~3 weeks of vegging.
-250w HPS for flowering.
-42w CFL above force flowered plants.





The germed seeds were planted in their pots 9/1/10. 3 of the 4 plants were LST'd producing between 4 and 8 tops per plant.

(There are 6 solo cups in this picture - 1 out of those 6 was a male and was destroyed immediately leaving 5 females)




The lights were flipped to 12/12 on 9/25/10 and the plants are looking and smelling beautiful. The supposed Maui Wowie is really exploding with crystal production and smelling fruity as hell.

One plant seems to be mainly Sativa, as it continues its stretch while the 3 others have all been finished with their stretch for awhile now. Also the buds are much farther behind than the buds on the 3 other plants. In order to keep the taller plant on the same level as the others, a supercropping technique was used for the two tallest tops

The force flowered plants are looking decent for only being fed water and being in 16oz solo cups. Not expecting much from these, but a few grams from each would suffice for sure.

Here are a few pictures from 10/26/10 (after 31 days of 12/12 lighting):






Maui Wowie:



Heady bagseed that was planted in Kmart soil:



Supercropped Suspected Sativa:



Force Flowered plants under CFL:





Harvest is expected for all plants besides the Sativa around Thanksgiving, with the Sativa harvest happening about 2-3 weeks later. Should have started the log earlier and taken more pictures, but the veg stage is boring anyway. I'll keep it up to date throughout the rest of the grow.

The Sativa is just exploding with growth. I supercropped it yesterday and its already turned up toward the light and grown another couple inches. I'm going to have to tie it down pretty soon so it doesn't get burned.

Plants are all looking great though. The Maui Wowie is so fucking frosty. I get hard just looking at it, not to mention smelling my fingers after fondling her.

Thanks man.

Ya I started using PBP after Magash suggested it a few years ago. Always had great results.


The Sativa grew up past the light again, even after supercropping, so I bent the main stem again in a different place to keep the canopy somewhat level. I figure the Sativa will need to flower about 3 more weeks than the rest of the plants so it'll have plenty of time to heal and kick up the bud production.


The Maui Wowie's trich production is outrageous. Crystals going out all the way to the tips of the smaller fan leaves.

And 2 days later the Sativa buds are just blowing up. The supercrop wounds are already healed into nice big knuckles, and i decided to give it another little bend to keep her canopy nice and even.

Coming up on 6 weeks of flowering, tomorrow is day 39.

I'm hoping to harvest by Thanksgiving, but I'm waiting til they're good and ready.

Then the Sativa and the force flowered plants will have the closet all to themselves until Christmas, for my happy holiday harvest.

I purchased a $20 closet air ionizer to help with the smell and it's worked wonders so far.

Gonna wake up tomorrow just before the lights come on and snap some good pictures without the HPS light to fuck up the color. I'll pull out each plant individually to get some better angles.

43 days of flowering. Looks like the Maui Wowie and Kmart soil plant will be the first to be harvested. They've got about 20% brown orange pistils and the other 2 plants have none so far.

My guess on harvest times..

Maui Wowie and Kmart: 2-3 weeks
Uknown Heady: 3-4 weeks
Force Flowered from seed: 4-5 weeks
Sativa: 4-6 weeks


Will probably start flushing the Maui and Kmart one day this week and then continue watering them with R/O or distilled water until harvest, giving them a drought for the last 5-7 days.

The Uknown Heady and Sativa will continue to get Bloom + Liquid Karma, and the Force Flowered plants will continue to get straight h2o.


I haven't decided what to do with the trimmings. I'm going to dry and cure all buds including popcorn buds. I'm thinking about doing an ISO wash on the majority of the trimmings and using the rest for a small batch of brownies.

Will update with pictures whenever I get my lazy ass around to it.

Added a 13w CFL about 2 inches from one of the Maui Wowie tops last night. Every little bit helps.

Anyone with a micro grow that doesn't have proper ventilation, I strongly recommend a closet air ionizer. $20 shipped online and it has completely taken care of the smell, unless of course you're in the closet.

Thanks Stoneth, I appreciate it coming from you.


The Maui Wowie is looking as delicious as ever, at about 30-40% amber pistils at day 52 of 12/12. I'd say she has about a week and a half to two weeks left.

The Kmart soil plant is about half the size of the others, and wasn't LST'd, so she's a little runt. Looking like she'll yield around 10g, which is more than I expected. A lot of her leaves are yellowing and drying out, but her buds are covered in trichs. She'll be harvested along with the Maui Wowie regardless of whether she's fully ready or not. She just needs to get the fuck out of the way so the Sativa can explode.

Looks like the Unknown Heady is growing some foxtails on her main cola. I was hoping one of the plants would have this trait, so I'm pretty excited. Barely any amber pistils on her, so I'm thinking she still has 3-4 weeks.

The Sativa has been supercropped a total of 6 times, and continues to grow up past the light with swelling buds. This thing is gonna be a monster once the first two plants are harvested and she has a little more space in the closet.

The 5 force flowered plants are hanging in there. 4 are about 9 inches tall while one is only about 5 or 6 inches. 4/5 of the plants have this weird leaf twist going on, which I'm thinking is more than likely because they're rootbound as fuck. I was curious as to what the yield would be on plants force flowered from seed in solo cups, so I won't be transplanting them. They'll probably be harvested along with the Unknown Heady in about 3.5 weeks.


I'll get a few shots up here of the Foxtailing on the Unknown Heady, and probably a few other pictures.

Decided to get the Kmart soil plant out of the closet early so the Maui Wowie can get as much as light as possible during her last few days.

Pulled exactly 7g dry off the Kmart soil plant, which is honestly more than I expected, and gives me really high hopes for the other 3 plants. Judging by the weight of this plant, I'm guessing at least 1.5oz per plant for the remaining 3.

The leaves on the Maui Wowie are starting to yellow, and the pistils are about 75% amber, with the bottom buds having about 90% amber. The trichs look mostly cloudy, I could only find a single amber trich yesterday, but I plan to check it everyday until harvest. Hoping to harvest her this Sunday, but only if she's ready.

The Sativa and Unknown Heady look amazing. The main cola on the Uknown heady is soo fat, and the buds on the Sativa are so delicious looking - lime green and frosted. I'll get pics up here when I harvest the Maui Wowie in a couple of days.
