Started a stealth grow for mother and clones
    #653877 - 01/05/13 07:05 PM (3 years, 10 months ago)

I built a stealth cabinet for mothers and clones.
This is what I plan to do?
I got some seeds from one of my buddies he said it was some good weed we will find out.Germinated 5 seeds on 1-3-13.I want to grow 6 of these plants to about 6-10 inches or to what ever they need to be? So I can force them into flowering to determine there sex. Kill the males force back to vegetation, then keep the females as mothers and cut clones. I want to try this process.I want to get the best female clones for this spring.Here are some pics of the stealth box.





Here are some more pics there is no light coming out . Thats a job.




The last pic was one of my temp/hum. been long time since ger. any seeds!

Build another bigger box for the mothers, well depending on how many clones you need to be taking and how often.

I would just flower the first few clones rooted honestly.
Some plants don't like revegging, and can take a while to do so.

I need to sex them before i start cloning right? or should i just take clones and sex 50 of them later. The reason I wanted to make sure there fem before I plant them.They will be 10 miles in the woods and I wont be able to look at them alot?

That should work well exactly how you describe.  There will, of course, be a period of slow/no growth while they adjust and re-adjust to the changes in light cycle.  But you have time to do it and I know many who use this same process to sex all their plants.  Some strains/individuals will be less willing to re-veg, and rarely some never do switch back from flower mode. If you only keep them in 12/12 long enough to see a couple pistils and then switch back I think you should be good to go.

I wouldn't reveg. Just continue to veg them all until you have good size. Label them all, make clones right before moving to bloom. Label and record all the clones as to which parent they came from. Then once in bloom for about two weeks the males will show and you toss them and their offspring, keeping only the female clones. I would turn those into your mothers because you can make notes and keep the best of the second generation for mothers. Based on your spring timing that makes more sense and trust me on that getting to second generation on the clones will greatly improve your mothers because you will have more experience with their genetics. I hope this helps.

awesome, wish i had this much space to work with. those seeds are gonna love the FFOF :thumbup: good luck

i would use more cfls though, or just stick 2 125watters in there as opposed to all the small cfl bulbs, takes up too much space IMO

im sure others have other sources, but i got mine from here within 3 days of ordering and i ordered on a friday night.

http://growace.com/advanced_search_result.html?keywords=compact+fluorescent&x=0&y=0

they have grow (veg) and bloom (flower) bulbs. 125-200W cfls. $40-70. great price i think.
then once you have the bulbs, you can go to your nearest hydroponics and get a Sun System Bright Wing reflector for $35. looks like this:

http://www.growwurks.com/bright-wing-reflector-fluorescent-grow-lamp-fixture.aspx

ive noticed hydro stores also have the bulbs, but theyre usually more expensive in store as ive noticed. shipping online and getting all the bulbs you need at once would save you a lot of money in shipping.
