Barney's Farm Tangerine Dream Ebb & Flow MicroGarden Grow T5 New Wave Lights
Thanks for stopping in. This thread is dedicated to the Barney's Farm (BF) Tangerine Dream (TD) strain. Please do not use this grow journal as a place to vent about BF or TD. Everyone has heard or read the stories that are going around about this strain; let's not rehash them here. If you do not know what I'm referring to, good, that means that you can view this grow without any pre-conceived conclusions, as will I.
Everyone is invited to share their own personal experience with TD if they are currently growing it or have in the recent past. Please feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, jokes, observations, whatever. Just please keep it civil and pull up a seat, because it is going to be a long grow.
The seeds were previously acquired from Attitude seeds. The cost for the seeds was in the neighborhood of $60 and one of the freebies was a G13 Pineapple Express; the 10% off 420 coupon code helped as well. I was really excited at the time I bought the seeds, as I love citrus fruits. I love tropical flavors as well. The description was so mouth watering for these seeds, that I could literally smell the oils from the tangerine, as they sprayed from its tearing skin.
I decided to go with Rockwool this time, as peat pellets have been giving me issues lately, and, these will be growing in hydroton, in an ebb and flow MicroGarden. I pre-soaked the cubes in distilled water, PH'ed to 4.0. This is to counter the extremely high PH that new Rockwool has. I used about a quart of water and poured it into my handy-dandy propagation tray. The tray is on a towel, which is resting on a germination heating pad.
seeds. Only one seed took to the bottom like a true champion diver, the remaining four seeds clung to the side, floating , as if they couldn't swim and were holding on to the edge of the pool. I playfully pushed them into the center, using my 5ml plastic pipette, coaxing them to let out their breath and sink like a stone. Eventually, one of them gained enough weight to sink.
I placed the Jigger on the warm towel in my nursery and covered it with 4 stacked solo cups, to keep the light out. My nursery is strictly CFL and T8, and T5s that stay on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I'm waiting for the Microgarden to show up, so I can get it ready for some TD ladies. I also have an RO unit ordered so I can quit lugging 15 gallons of distilled water home every week from the grocery stores. I currently have two monster Bubblelicious plants scrogging in my flowering tent that drink almost 3 gallons a day between them. The link to that grow is in my sig if anyone is interested.
