    Wassup to all my RIU family back with another journal here but this will be my only one as I'll show everything I'm doing right here. Growing a few different strains and going to be growing lots more so theres no way I can start journals for each one so this will supplement all of them. This journal will have a lil bit of everything from pheno hunts, testing and some pollen chucking lol. I'm no breeder but I'm gonna try my hand at some crosses and hope for something good. With all the great genetics I have I should be able to get lucky once and make something happen :lol: Just moved into my new house first of the year so thats how I'm able to do this stuff cus of all the space I have now and I'm just super excited that I can really do something I love.

    Here's the setup:

    4 x 8 Veg tent (2x)1000w air cooled
    5 x 10 Flower tent (3x)1000w air cooled

    Medium:

    Fox Farms Ocean Forest and Supersoil.
    Perlite
    Stump Tea and Oregonism XL(myco)
    Solo Cups; 1,3, & 5gal grow bags

    Also 100% Perlite for hydro grow
    Cyco Platinum Series for hydro
    (2x)10gal pot in pot top fed recirculating system

    Most of my plants will be soil grown but I'm gonna grow a couple hydro plants every round cus I like the speed of growth and the ease of the hydro system I use. Since I give a lot away to close family and couple friends the hydro harvest will probably be for them as I'm a true soil man as nothing beats the taste. Just got into supersoil and just made my first batch yesterday. Got it cooking in my garage with a heater next to it to keep it warm cus its still cold out but weather picking up this week. Since I'll have many strains going I'll do my best to put out as much info as I can on each since this won't be dedicated to just one but anybody is welcomed here and can ask, suggest or bring great info to the table at anytime. This was just to get the thread started I'll be posting pics of everything thats going on right now. Stay tuned

    UPDATE

    Heres the test beans I just started a few days ago. The breeder of these beans are Motarebel. Here are the strains I'm testing:

    Purple Urkke Hybrid (Purple Urkle x Purple Indica BX3)
    SFVOG x Longbottom Leaf(SFVOG x (SFVOG x Jacks Cleaner 2)

    Very excited about both crosses. Never grown a OG or OG cross nor have I grown Purple Urkle or Urkle cross. Have heard about OG and crosses being finicky and Urkle being a slow vegger so I believe this will be a good test to my skills. Seeds were dropped in water a few days ago and were planted in plain FFOF soil. I know FFOF can be hot and most don't put seeds straight into it but I haven't seen any problems with me doing it with a few strains I've popped recently. Plus I can't count how many growers off the net I have seen do this with no problems. If it is too hot they'll just have to fight through it but like I said I have seen any problems or burned seedlings yet so I'll keep doing this until I see other wise.

    UPDATE

    Heres the update on theSinCity testers Silverback Jack(GG#4 x Karmas SourJack). They're looking great and really starting to take off. Growth had been slow but cold temps were the reason but no more of that. Seeing some really fat leaves from this one. Dont know what side its coming from but I haven't seen 3 bad leaves when they're small this fat. Could be the IBL of Sour Diesel in the SourJack but we shall see as they progress. These have been topped and two tops have been tied down on each plant. Looking good and growth has been amazing in a week.

    UPDATE

    Heres the update on the Bodhi testers Chem 3 x 88g13/HP. These are doing awesome and really smelling like straight Chem. Theres some hints of a weird sweetness but its like a numbing sweetness when smelled. There are def a few phones in this cross but a lot of them lean to the Chem side in looks of leaves. There def a couple Hashplant phenos as some of these have some major and I mean major fat big huge indica fan leaves. Only thing is the HP dom pheno is male but now that I have space I can keep him for breeding. He looks to be a stud as he has all the right qualities. Stinks to high heaven but not very Chem dom I'm sure its the g13/HP but don't know what if its g13 or HP dom either way I love it and will make f2s with him. Have a Chem dom male I like but only thing I don't like is he was the fastest to flower of all phones but this may be a good thing as these have been very slow to show so he may be a good male to use to speed things up in this cross.

    As of now I have 5 females and 3 males out of 10 and two haven't fully shown themselves but should in next couple days hopefully. Either way 5 females all different phones will be awesome. These are in 1gal grow bags still was waiting for them to show themselves before I transplanted with fresh soil. After being translated they'll veg for another few weeks before they go in flower. Trying to get a nice round of females before I start flower as I'm gonna have somewhat of a perpetual grow but won't be every couple weeks. Gonna shoot for nice harvest once a month. Gonna take clones this week of each pheno this week after transplant. The two that your about to see are the best looking so far. Here they are with the other 3 females to come

    Yea it def is gonna reward me with great yield and that one of the purposes as I'm a heavy smoker. Mrs loves it too as she smokes so that's why I haven't heard any complaints from her plus this is my only hobby she knows I don't go chill with other people or go to clubs and bars so she doesn't fuck with me about growing.

    Sorry about the slow load up man I didn't wanna bombard the thread with lots of pics for that reason so I only added a few on each update. I'll spread the updates around so we should have some convo in between the updates. I won't have a lot of pix either on veg stuff but when the buds are growing well I won't be able to help that :)
