1) Make sure type 1 seeds from last seasons seed crop will germanate.
2) Grow some various seeds I have. (mostly type 3 with some type 1).
3) Grow for 8 to 10 weeks. I plan to move in April with shit to smoke.
4) Harvest from 20g to 35g per plant.
5) Smoke in 9 to 11 weeks.
Lighting will be my 430 watt hps.
Nutes will be FoxFarm. (My tweeks).
On 1-14-09 I start about 1/2 dozen type 1 seeds and one dozen varous other seeds and oops all ready I mixed up the fuckers.
(1) Type 1 has a tall (All #1's will be in blue cups).
(8) Mysery seeds very ready (All ? will be in red cups).
Three more type 1's are ready for soil.
So goal #1 has been met.
My soil mix is as follows:
(2) 16oz cups of Pro-Mix soil
(1) 16oz cup of Perlite
I use this ratio and mix a big bucket to fill the 16oz cups. I may add some bat guano.
As of now 11 of 18 seeds germanated after just two days. Tomarrow they should poke their heads out of the ground.
Sunday Jan 18
All 6 of the type #1 (Blue Cups) and 9 of 12 type #3 (Red Cups) germanated.
The last one went in soil about 1/2 hour before the night cycle. I put it in eary (see pics) but I wanted all of then to start the 12/12 today.
Here are all 15 under the 430watt hps.
So far 6 Honies have popped out of the ground and are about 1/2" tall (12cm). Not bad for day 1.
(this pic was in the morring at the start of the lights on for 12 hours.)
As this is a 12/12 grow from seed the veg stag and the first flower stag will happen at the same time. 14 of the plants I'll grow the way I know the last one I'm goning to try something new.
To this point I have been only using water (H2O). But now I mixed 5ml of FoxFarm's Big Bloom (0.01-0.3-0.7). This is a one half mix but in a week or so I'll be over full strength.
Pretty much just foliar feed and stand water. For this mix I will give this every time I water for about a week then I ramp it up.
Test Plant (Bat Gauno Soil):
Same as above except I added gauno to the soil I may use gauno water a couple times also will see what happens.
I've done 12/12 from seed grows before. Each plant averages about an ounce, and grows to be 12"-24" tall. But if you want to get a pound, as you said in your other thread, I'd germinate at least 25, but upwards of 30. If half of them are male, then I'd germinate 32, allowing 16 females. 16 females at an ounce a girl is a pound, my friend. Good luck, I have faith in you.
