Well I'm off with a new grow for the new year ... popped 3 pineapple chunk from Barney's farm on Jan 1st. Using the wet paper towel method, all 3 cracked on Jan 3rd and were planted in 8oz cups with just promix-bx. Watered with distilled water and supethrive for the first 14 days.
Now I don't know how you guys do it, but i don't consider veging till after the first 14 days. So when i transplant at 14 days i count that as the first day of veg. I transplanted into 1 ltr pots and started watering with liquid Karma, pureblend pro (grow for soiless) , cal/mag plus and a drop of superthrive.
wish i could have takein pics of them earlier but i'm old and forgot lol anyways here are the 3 girls at 2 weeks in veg (27 days from seed )
I have them under a 4light T5 , the veg box is covered in mylar and i have a couple of led panes for sidelighting
All the plants are bottom fed because they will be transplanted to the wick system .. just my experience they seem to grow a little beter if they were bottom fed from seedlings?
I use distilled water i guess for piece of mind .. i know whats in it lol
Always have used PureBlend pro as my veg fert, but i found that the bloom is somewhat lacking and you need way to many additives so with all thats out there now i might try something new for flower ..
any comments / suggestions welcome
those are some fat arse fan leaves
knowledge is power the more you know the better you grow.!!!!!
thanks shadowdarker .. first time growing this strain so I'm not sure what to expect ...
Well the transplant into the wick buckets went well. They seem to be filling out nicely.
These were taken on feb 3 ... 34 days from seed .. 3 weeks into the veg lighting cycle
When I transplanted they went in my secret jardin drII 90 tent under a 430W sonogro light, inside a 6in cool tube vented seperately from my carbon filter , which is mounted in the top corner of my tent.
Temps are 75 -79 lights on , 65-70 lights off. I also have a inline fan on my lowest vent blowing some fresh air into the tent.
My wick buckets are just kitty litter pails , stacked , with a net pot in the bottom of the upper pail. It is filled by way of a pipe into the bottom pail which acts as a small rez.
I add 1 liter of chunky vermiculite to the bottom of the top pail, enough to fill the netpot and bottom of pail, which acts as my wick. Then i add 5 liters of promix-bx soil on top of the vermiculite, when i transplant.
Another PC Grow, Sub'ed for this one!!
