Iced Grapefruit 150w Grow (finished 11/14)
    #575984 - 08/01/11 09:19 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

Alrighty. Well, it seems all my homies back for the summer have cleaned me out on my extra bud...I'm down to my headstash, so before it becomes and emergency situation I've decided to start up a new grow.

Unfortunately its horribly hot on the second floor of my house (where my grow room is) so I'm stuck only doing 1 plant and only using my 150w setup. I always veg under 150w of CFL anyway, but I'll be flowering under a 150 HPS too.

On the other hand, this does give me a chance to try out growing in coir! For this new venture, I've decided to setup an automatic drip feeder. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to go about it just yet, but I know I'll think of something. I'd also like to make it a goal of mine to get some practice cloning which means I'll have to veg for a bit longer than usual.

Anyway, today marks the germination of my seed. I've decided to go with the Iced Grapefruit seed I bought...I've always wanted to grow this strain as far back as the first time I looked into growing.

I'll edit all the pictures into this first post...if you're interested in feeding schedules and what-have-you, just scroll through and read. This makes it easier for people just wanting to see progress :]

I'm tolling new strains for a winter grow so I'm going to keep an eye on this one, can't wait. Ive put 4 plants under 150-250 watts which is what you'll be and rotated them methodically and I was much happier with 4 than with 1 or 2, but I had a decent setup that particular time.

Anyway, good luck.:thumbup:

im excited to see how this goes. I have never ordered from rhino before and was always hesitant for some reason, the site kinda sketched me out.

anyway keep us posted and if you have any input about rhino that would great, always wondered about those guys.

Bit of a misunderstanding there. I actually ordered the seeds from Attitude, I just used that link for anyone who was curious about the strain, because it had all the info put into that nifty little chart there :tongue2:

Anyways, I've set my cabinet up and she should be popping out of the dirt when I go check on her this morning. I actually found some older soil that I've decided to mix in at a very low ratio to the coir...simply because I'm worried about fucking up feeding. I've never had to worry about it (in the beginning) because the soil took such good care of it already. I rarely had to feed before I switched to flower.

Week 1 picture [Re: A To The K]
    #578259 - 08/14/11 02:56 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Oops, missed a week by 1 day. My bad.



There she be. Its mostly coir underneath, but it kinda stretched past my liking so I stole some dirt from another pot I haven't emptied yet (fully flushed, no worries). I think that'll help keep the top layer moist too, so thats a benefit.

Me thinks she'll be getting her first feeding today.

I might combine this log with some outdoor autoflowers I've got going...I'm waiting on sexing them before I bother making a log...going to check them tomorrow around noon. 4/5 grew, heres to hoping theres at least 1 female in the bunch.

Didn't update because I had topped her right before day 7, but now its recovered and growing.

Had a bit of a P problem but it appears to be fixed.



Shes getting crazy branchy! This is a nice short plant, a trait I kinda like. Looks like shes probably gonna need a lot of LST.

OK, going against my original plan I've decided to flower her now. I was originally going to transplant into a bigger container and take some clones to setup a sort-of-perpetual thing. I've already decided that I don't care to keep this strain as a mother for a perpetual setup - shes too smelly too early on. Shes not even flowering yet and has already started filling my upstairs with green smell. Not that smell is a real concern...but others in my home aren't fans of the cannabis smell, and I prefer to be accommodating to their needs.

So, this is the last you'll see of her in veg. And, the last update I'll make until I see some flowering starting (2 weeks max probably.)





Updates for my outdoor thread coming tomorrow B)

Alright, an update for the sake of updating...its easier for me to stick to a weekly thing to make sure I keep up with it.

Not much progress...the expected stretch. No more than other plants. No flowers yet (I've named this picture "preflower", I hope it doesn't confuse anyone. Its pre-flowering...not preflowering. Lol shit.)



I'm expecting it to be flowering by this time next week.

Updates to outdoor a little bit later! (once I get up there and back...)

Rigid = bad? :confused: I think it looks pretty healthy, minus the lower leafs that had some problems in the beginning because I fed too late. Always happy to hear another persons opinion though.

Its under a 150w HPS, might be getting a bit close, I raised it up this morning. The temps have been getting up too high, but theres little to nothing I can do about it. Thats why I don't grow in the summer, its much too hot. I'd leave the door to the room open, but then it'd get light from my veg cab at night and I can't count on myself to remember to shut the door every night.

As for a fan, I've got a bigass prolly 2.5 foot wide fan circulating air around. Its a big closet, I usually have my 400 in there, but this was a "fuck I'm running out of weed I need to grow something NOW" plant :lol:

Yea I wouldn't be worried about the rigidness of the leaves, looks like they are just flattening out for more light like they are supposed to.

No pics today, but just wanted to say that she started actually showing flowers 2 days ago. So, I'll call this "week 1" of actual flowering once I get the pics going. Probably Tues or Wednes. Depends on whos doing what...

She could have been showing a day earlier too, so I'ma say about 7 days before she switched. Pretty quick IME.
