updated from 7/21/12 *****transplant into 16 oz solo cups
yo guys, i'm doing this in pieces. here are some updates from 7/21/12. Here is one of my first dumb mistakes at trying a method possibly a little too early without knowing or having my tools to do the job (like what i would use for a stake for LST and was still unsure about LST technique).. but I will let everyone in on my little fuck up cause its all a learning process. I transplanted the 3 KC33 into the 16oz solo cups full of Fox Farms Happy Frog (wasnts my first choice but was a little cheaper locally at a shop). Have heard mixed reviews about happy frog but was only gonna have it in there for like 25 days or so cause i've heard you can stay in a solo cup for quite a while with just Happy frog or Roots Organic.
Anyways, I transplanted and after about a week of growth decided to lst with some fuckin scotch tape taped to a big leaf and that taped to the solo cup and no cross stake (dont think thats the proper term but whateva).
Long story short is the wind was real bad the next couple of days and 3 of them taped ripped off of cup and on the KK half of leaf was ripped off.. so know lst was ever started. HAHA
So from left to right kc33#1,kc33#2 in first pic, second pic is Kc33#2&Kc33#3 and the KK#1 third and fourth pics are just reversed. Go ahead and grill me on this one if yall want. ITS ALL GOOD HERE!

Reason: couple of details added
updated from 7/28/12**** Still in solo cups and growing with some problem pics***
So a week later and I've had to move locations from one to another which was planned. No worries on that end. But I actually started to run into some problems with my leaves around this time. I didnt know initially but soon found out that leaf miners were getting to my leaves even after using neem oil/dish soap/water solution every three days since they popped and were taken from window sill to outside. I was really worried at the beginning but more growth kept coming even though the plants looked like shit to me I never lost faith in there ability to over come pests. I actually got the idea to buy KC33 from a thread that was started on here for Best Strains for Outdoor Grow Thread that was started and lasted for a long while and they said that the KC33 was actually one of the most vigorous growing plants from the start and didnt have problems with mold or any bugs... not the exact quote but was the jist of it.
which i was really worried about because it would make no sense to invest so much money into a job that was gonna get eaten by bugs or end up with some sort of loss due to mold. Like i said this is my first real grow and I wanted the fewest problems which was the reason why I decided to go supersoil with these babies after a while of vegging in solo cups. check out the pics.
Both pics the 2 on left are kc33 (top and bottom) and the 2 on right KK is on top and KC33 is on bottom.
Let me know how i'm doing and if im lacking anything??? Happy growing peoples
**********updated from 7/29/12 transplanted 2 kc33's into smart pots****lots of pics*
What up future viewers and hopefully some of yall will join along for the journey! I transplanted 2 of the kc33 to smart pots. 1 is in a 5 gallon other in 7 gallon smart pot with Roots Organic soil on top 65% and subcools super soil on bottom 35% as I didnt want to burn these ladies too early. Saving the heat til the trichomes are perfectly ripe and my buds are ready for long dry and cure.
I also included some pics from my pops' bag seed from some regular shit and a wild weed (regular as well) that my pops found at his mother in laws (dont hate on my pops for not being able to handle the GOODS ! He would look like this all day if I gave him the Good stuff much less the stuff I plan on growing. My main reason for growing is to get the BEST Quality and to have the ability to grow whatever strain whenever I want.
First pic is my dads regs#1 I dont know all the specifics on his grow. He doesnt smoke but once every 2 weeks or so. All i know is that its around 3 months - 3 1/2 months old and is probably in a 20-25 gallon pot I'm guessing and is just Miracle Grow.. lol My dads quote is "I dont take care of my plants like you do. I dont give a fuck about all that shit" hahaha he's a CRAZY OLD MAN.
2nd pic,3rd,4th pic are all after transplant into 7 gallon smart pot for the KC33.
5th pic left KK and right KC33 is solo's
6th,7th pics are top KK and bottom KC33
8th pic is top left KK bottom left KC33 and 7 gallon smart pot KC33 (These are what i call family photos)
9th pic is KC33 in the 7 gallon smart pot
10th pic is the KC33 I transplanted into 5 gallon smart pot and was placed in different part of grow spot.
11th,12th,13th pics are just the regs#2 that was found growing wild in a yard and my dad dug it up with with a shovel with just native soil which looks like mud and is still growing in approximately 5 gallon pot with just native soil. (this is just for fun and to see how hardy weed really is)
14th-17th are all KC33 in the 5 gallon smart pots.
Next update will be there reaction to the supersoil.
Lets go I know a couple people already viewed this. Can i get some subscribers that are along for the whole ride.
ANY FEED BACK WELCOME!
p.s. still fighting the leaf miners. those little fuckers keep leaving there trails on my leaves and turning the beauty to ugliness. does anyone have any ideas what i should do for my outdoor grow? I've been spraying neem almost a month and I'm still battling!
**updated pics from 8/2/12***

First 3 pics are of the KC33 in the 5 gallon smart pot.
4-6 pics are at the top KK and at bottom kc33.

***update 8/4/12**more leaf miner problems and some happy frog bute burn**TRANSPLANT
yo people 94 views and not a single comment? Does my grow look that shitty for a first grow? I hope not cause I still have a lot of hope in these hopeful girls. Even welcoming negative comments. The more feedback the better. Well here comes some more pics of some problems I've been facing but have been taking everything in stride and just taking it one step at a time. not beating myself up . Check them out and let me know what you guys think...
So I just posted around 50 pictures of both my KC33 and KK being transplanted and different problems I faced with them (leaf miners, nute burn, other bugs despite neem oil).
Check them out and give me some feedback.
Happy growing ladies and gentlemen. Stay high

***update 8/9/12 & 8/11/12 plenty of pics***starting to look better
i'll just keep posting away and hopefully some people enjoy what they see. last post for the night...
First 10 pics are both KC33 the one in the top of the pics is in 5 gallon smart pot and one in smaller pot is in 3 gallon smart pot (with 60% roots organic and 40% super soil).
Pics 11-17 are of the biggest KC33 in the 7 gallon smart pot (This is one of my favorites out of the 4) it looks like it is reacting well to the supersoil.
Pics 18-24 I believe are the Kandy Kush in the 7 gallon smart pot <She looked like it was too early for her to get put into the supersoil but i know she will bounce back. I've heard Kandy Kush is a real heavy feeder.
The rest are just the same.
Let me know what yall think?

Learning How To Roll
Learning How To Roll
Looking nice m8
What up Maga0, Thanks for checking my journal out. more to come possibly today.. I will try to upload some pics by the end of the day.
****8/18/12 Update**** any comments welcome*** about 43 days into veg
So I will keep posting my grow journal just in case more people want to comment or ask questions.
So I am at around 42-45 days and I feel like I have gotten through the initial kinks in my grow.. the bugs seem to be gone cause i moved the 2 that were getting eaten by the other 2 plants that were not getting eaten. Now it looks like all of the plants had something we call "hot feet" because i think i put them into the supersoil maybe 5-10 days too soon. Now the new growth on the plants is starting to look healthier with less and less leave roll up/down and less nute burn at tips of leaves. I've been watering about 2 times a week due to 100-110 weather i've been facing.
Also, im thinking about possibly lst'ing these babies within the next week or so. Still deciding what i will use to tie down and to anchor. If anyone has any tips on LST or the easiest way to LST? Let me know. I know theres lots of threads about LST and i have been learning through them. but just to make it a little easier for a brotha.
My pics include all of my plants and a couple of pics of both of my dads bagseed plants. a couple of closeups from the regs#1 bud sights.. tell me what yall think?
