Man Eater, FFOF, 400w HPS, Seed to Mother to Flower
    #688696 - 10/11/13 02:51 AM (3 years, 1 month ago)

Strain: Man Eater
Grow Medium: Fox Farms' Ocean Forest
Light Source/Wattage: Veg'd for two weeks under138w 6500K CFL Finished veg and flowered under 400w HPS in a cooltube.
Veg/Flower cycles : 20/4 Veg 12/12 Flower
Temps: in the day stayed a constant 73F-78F at night they dropped as low as 55F

Nutrients used were Fox Farms' Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, Beastie Bloomz, and Cha Ching. Blackstrap molasses was used during the last month of flower at 1 tbsp/gallon.
LST'd to an extent, these plants were too vigorous to be tied down like other strains, although it really did help a lot! Scrog will be used next time for sure!


The sole purpose of these plants was to take clones, find the female(s), designate mother, and then use appropriate clones later in a DWC SCrOG.

There are 3 plants, all Man Eater.
Plant 1 sprouted 9/14.
Plant 2 sprouted 9/15.
Plant 3 sprouted 9/16.
(I number the plants in the order they germ'd/sprouted.)

I realized I was infested with gnats the day the final plant sprouted, which affected them slightly, but now the problem is resolved. :thumbup:

Day 9


Plant 1


Plant 2


Plant 3




Day 20
(Day of transplant, by this time they were desperately in need of transplanting.)


Plant 1


Plant 2


Plant 3




Day 25


Plant 1


Plant 2


Plant 3




Day 27


Plant 1


Plant 2


Plant 3




Day 32

(LST'd; Moved to 400w HPS)






Day 36

(Sorry, didn't get any pics in regular lighting.)




DIY Cooltube:




Day 74

Plant #1


Plant #2


I didn't intend on vegging them this long, (And I know to expect rootbinding being a problem.) but I had to wait until I knew for a fact that I'd be able to have rooted clones from them. Plant #3 turned out to be a male.

Here are the clones in the cloner. (They all took root!)


From here, I'll be posting the flowering updates. :yesnod:

Day 6 Flower

Plant #1 (Green Bucket)


Plant #2 (Red Bucket)


Day 17 Flower


Plant #1


Plant #2




Day 23 Flower






Day 42 Flower


Plant #1



Plant #2





A few close-up trichome shots. :wink:




I'm going to try to get hold of a better camera for future updates, I REALLY want to get some nice, crisp, bud shots. :drooling:

Day 69 Flower

(Harvest in 2 - 5 days!)

(Couldn't find a better camera :frown: )









No Pics yet, but the dry weight is in!
Harvested on Feb. 14. :love:
Put in jars Feb. 20.
Plant #1 = 75.7g dense tops
Plant #2 = 50.9g dense tops
Exactly 28g of popcorn buds jarred up, I've smoked about a quarter of the popcorn bud leading up to the weighing.

Total weight of the dry, uncured bud is 154.6 grams (5.52 oz!)
Even freshly cut, when most strains taste green, these were sweet enough to smoke and love it!
After a week of drying, it's already better than any of the local "high grade" $20/g shit around, and that's before it's had even a day of curing!

Roughly ~3 oz of trim, which is gonna has made some awesome oil. :cool:

BUD PICS!

(There's more bud than what is pictured, I just picked the best looking tops from each.)

Some of #2:





Some of #1:



Most of the tops had to be cut in half to fit in the half gallon jars, so they were actually even longer than pictured!


To be continued...

dont smoke cigarettes and touch your plants without washing your hands first... you can poison your plant. or at least parts of it.

Thanks everyone! :thumbup:
The cigarette pack was just for size reference, 90% of the time I'm handling the plants, I treat it like I'm performing mycology. :wink:

Thanks man. :thumbup:
The tube was a Pyrex Bake-A-Round, so it can definitely handle the heat.
I forgot to get a pic of the thermometer, but the temperature at just level with the tops of the plants is staying 72F-74F, so it's working great! :awesomenod:

Yeah I don't think the bulb is supposed to be pointed straight down for the reason you said. (Not enough light reflecting in the right direction.)
If I were you, I'd get a basic wing reflector cheap, ($35 or under.) and then use the socket that comes with it and build the tube. Then get the reflector over the tube fairly close to it.
The tube came from eBay for around $15, you could probably find a cheap wing reflector w/socket there, too. :thumbup:

Pyrex Bake a Round:

And here's a cheap reflector, just choose the "GW19" model for the cheapest one:

(Make sure you choose which hangers you want, as it won't update the price until you've chosen everything.)

Google "DIY Bake a Round Cool Tube" and there are tons of threads on how to put it together, I forgot to take pics of the whole process and post it here. :sad:

:shrug:
I'd considered it, but didn't want to stress them out cutting branches off, and these weren't originally intended to be flowered, they were meant to be mothers. But after failing once to get clones to root, and then succeeding the 2nd time, I figured I'd flower these and keep the clones to be mothers.

So I wasn't actually 100% prepared to flower these when it happened, the REAL grow is up next after this; DWC SCrOG :yesnod:

Thanks man. :awethumb:
Shouldn't be much longer now before the swell, and they're already exceeding anything I could've expected. :yesnod:
Overall, they're pretty damn happy, but where I let them get so rootbound there are a few signs of stress; not many though, hardy plants for sure!
