    Hi Guys!

    I
    've been growing for 5 years now while I was living in Toronto and just made the move back to my home state of Colorado, so this is my first official "legal" grow. I just moved into a house and have plans to build out a grow room in the basement, where I have 16.5 x 8.5 x 8 to work with, so I'm gonna have a pretty amazing room when I can save up for the thing. Right now I'm growing out of my old grow tent that I had hidden in my apartment kitchen the last 6 years. It's sure nice not having to hide my grow for once!

    I was very fortunate to be good friends with one of the old Master growers for Delta 9 here in Denver, whom invented Bruce Banner. So I've been lucky to get the real deal cuts of bruce banner #3 and cuts of the strawberry diesel's from which half of bruce's genetics originate. As the title says the three strains are Bruce Banner #3, Strawberry Diesel #5, and W. Strawberry Diesel #10, which I've been told stands for either whitefire or whiteout. I'm growing three massive plants in my old 4.5 x4.5 x 8 tent. My plants each have a 15 gallon smart pot. I'm just growing for myself now with hopes in future to be able to sell on the side for a bit of side profit. Legally in Colorado anyone can grow 6 plants so I'm planning to eventually build a room that supports 6 super massive pot plants in 40-50 gallon pots. This way I can legally grow a bulk amount of bud without having to have more people pledge to me as their caretaker. Plus the fact that I dont want to deal with multiple plants, and don't necessarily have a desire to clone if I don't have to. If I set up the room right eventually I can choose a new round of six clones from around the city of Denver each time, and have more variety as to what I grow and smoke, rather than re-growing a crap ton of the same strains. I may set up a small mother plant of the Bruce Banner #3 though since its kind of a special plant being an official cut.

    I'll post some more pictures of the future/forthcoming room in some future posts. My tent is set up "pretty" similarly to my past setups if you want to look at some of my old threads to see my past grows. This grow is in soil, im using Fox Farm Marine Cuisine with a sun mix blend. Besides that here are some pictures of my babies now, and as they start to grow you can be sure to expect many updates on this forum! Drop me a line, tell me what you think of my grow plans, setup, etc... I love getting feedback and corresponding with other wise growers. Throw me your 2 cents!

    So I spoke to my friend more and he said the seeds came from Carpe Diem Seed Company which is a private breeder. The white strawberry diesel #10 is actually "White Strawberry Fire Alien #10." I'm trying to find out more information on it too, if anyone has grown it in the past, smoked it, etc... I'd love to know a little bit more about this plant!

    Hey Guys!

    Been a bit busy lately so haven't gotten to pics in a bit. I put the girls into flower officially. And yesterday I moved them from their 5 gallon up to new 15 gallon smart pots so they should really be taking off soon. Can't wait to show you more!

    Hey everyone!

    The plants are coming along incredibly well, they're really stretching out in their 15 Gallon smart pots I put them in. I'm hoping 4-6 weeks left depending on the strain and how much time each one takes. And without further adieu, the only reason you guys read these forums (unless you have a question you need answered) :-P.

    Hey guys!

    Update December 16, 2013!

    Just
    changed out the reflector today for a much better one and a digital ballast to go with. Had some issues with the old light and ballast so I converted from HPS to metal halide (not something I'd normally do for flower, however I'm getting ready to convert this tent into my veg room and build out the half basement mentioned at the beginning of this forum. So basically the MH bulb will be better for my future plants. Plus its a USHIO german bulb so its got extra red spectrum and should be just fine for the last 5 weeks of flower. If anything I have better light coverage now that I changed out the reflector as well. Here are all the bud shots you've all been waiting to see. Can I get some replies up in this bitch? Sheesh!!!! Tell me how they look boys!
