PERPETUAL.12/12 FROM SEED.250w.BLUE CHEESE & BIG GRAPEFRUIT IN COCO CHECK ME OUT!
thanks alot for coming through to my thread. i want to start off by saying this is a project that is 8 months coming now, and due to fairly poor planning at first and also a lay-off which made it impossible to financially accommodate the mistakes i was making, this will be the first time this entire year i will actually be able to take a plant into flowering. lol. ALSO, this is my first grow ever. or more technically my first collective effort at growing.. because during the past 8 mo. i have probably grown about 15 different plants at different times using different methods. only killed about 3. and i even was growing quite a few females. but to make a long story short, i was never able to accommodate for flowering any of the plants ive grown and i was forced to get rid of them at a certain age.
8 months later. i feel soooo good where i am today. ive had alot of practice growing bud now. ive used various photo periods, growing mediums, seeding methods, nutrients, temps and environmental conditions, etc. im very comfortable keeping seedlings healthy, transplanting plants, utilizing EC/PPM meters for maximum feeding, PH, etc.
but.. no experiance whatsoever producing fruit and keeping the plant healthy and thriving untill harvest. soooooo.. i decided to come to rollitup and see if any kind and interested stoners out there could help me through it!
so enough prefacing, heres what i got living in my closet!
im growing in 50/50 coco and perlite.
250w Hortilux Super HPS in 6" cooltube (after day 14)
110w 6400k T-5 florescent light fixture (pre day 14)
canna coco nutes : A+B, rhizo, cannazym, boost, PK 13/14
9oz solo cup day 0-10
2gal felt grow pot till harvest
12/12 from seed
PERPETUAL !!! my closet is cordoned off into 2 areas, one with the T-5's, and one with the HPS. the plan here will be to add 2 plants every 30 days with the maximum capacity of the area w the HPS at 4. and 6-8 seedlings/clones under the T-5's. this allows me to have 3 different age groups each 30 days apart.
goes like this ..
add 6-8 clones/seeds to the blue room .. pick the 2 best looking ones after 14 days
transplant to 2gal felt pots and into the red room they go.
day 30 i add another round of babies under the T-5's and pick the best after 14 days
transplant those into 2 gal pots, stuff em under the HPS with the older 2 ..
day 60 i add another batch of youngn's ..
day 74-80 i will harvest the oldest 2 in the red room and replace them with the 2 best looking youngest plants
THEN FROM THERE JUST RINSE AND REPEAT! lol
now for some pictures. these ladies are 22 days old and have been 12/12 since birth. only 2 days under the HPS tho. 400w was too hot and i had to order a 250w. i just got it 2 days ago. they have been under the T-5's untill now. 10,000 lumens of 6400k aint bad but not the right spectrum this late on 12/12 and i might suffer on some yield for that. day 30 is coming up and i will be starting more seeds soon. let me know what you think so far, sorry for all the text i promise i will bathe this thread in pictures and many updates as i get this perpetual ball rollin!
so this is what im growing this month ...
BLUE CHEESE (indica) and BIG GRAPEFRUIT (sativa)
im growing 2 of each but i will only keep 2 total. probably one of each strain. the other 2 i will use for clones on day 30 and then discard the plants when the clones are ready to go under the HPS. im actually debating if i want to do that and use clones for next month or start some new genetics ..
either way tho here they are. the grapefruit are the really healthy bushy looking ones. and the blue cheeses have some leaf curl going on and also arnt as bushy because they have been in 9oz solo cups up untill yesterday (day 21) .. i transplanted the grapefruits on day 14 so they're looking good.
SO THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT MY SHIT!
LIKE I SAID ILL UPDATE FREQUENTLY AND UPLOAD LOTS OF GOOD PICTURES SO SUB UP AND LETS SEE HOW THIS ALL TURNS OUT! IM GONNA NEED HELP GETTING THESE GIRLS TO THE END OF THE ROAD SO I HOPE YOU GUYS STICK AROUND.
IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IVE MOVED THIS THREAD TO THE GROW JOURNAL SECTION OF THE SITE .. YOU KNOW .. WHERE ITS SUPPOSED TO BE. LOL
