A micro-grow journal where I run a few beans at a time to produce a variety of tasty smoke for me to choose from. I grow in Mordor, where the shadows lie, and the Eye of Sauron scans the landscape for tiny Hobbits growing that Longbottom Leaf. They lock people in cages for this, can you believe that shit? Barbarians! Right now I'm running a tap water only organic soil I've amended with some stuff, mostly Espoma *-Tone products in Black Gold Natural and Organic base. Black Gold Natural And Organic, 2 cu. ft. (12 Gallons) I add about 3 gallons of chunky perlite. 1.5 Cups Plant-Tone 1.5 Cups Garden-Tone 2 Cups Holly-Tone 1/2 Cup Bone Meal 1/2 Cup Blood Meal 1 Cup Horticultural (Dolomite) Lime If the base mix is dry I add a gallon or two of water so it is moist, but not wet. I mix it up in big Rubbermaid storage bins, then I stir every few days and let it cook for at least a month, preferably 6 weeks. I don't plant seeds or cuts directly into it. It seems to work. I use 5 gallon smart pots for flowering, and I usually veg in a size or two smaller, I may start going from 16oz keg cup straight to the 5 gallon Smarty. I need to buy a few more, and another small tent to dry flowers in. Odor is a real concern for me, so my early-flower tent, finish-flower tent and drying tent will all need to have carbon filters. I have four plants two weeks into flower, all grown from feminized seeds: 1 Scott's OG from Rare Dankness. Triangle Kush x Rare Dankness #1 1 Devil's Harvest Strawberry Sour Diesel Both of the above germinated on March 28. In the back left and back right, shorty and the tall bitch of the tent shot, respectively. 2 Freebies I got from Delicious, called Candy this year, Cheese Candy last year. Their Caramelo x Exodus Cheese. Both of these Germinated April 1. They are the two in the front of the tent shot. I flipped them all to flower just over two weeks back. I also have some in veg, HSO Blue Dream Elemental Honey Bananas Cream of the Crop Purple Paralysis Bomb Seeds Cherry Bomb I've attached some of the pics I have on hand, I'll add better ones going forward. It is about time I started this thread. The plan is to harvest two plants, then move two plants into the flower tent every month. It will probably take me some practice to make it happen, and I realized just now I'm going to need another tent, but that's the direction I'm headed. Peace for now, and forever. Yada yada y'all, I'm out. I've been using Blumats in the flower tent, but the plumbing gets in the way of pruning and plant maintenance, I may switch to hand watering. I'll continue to dial in my process. Hand watering sounds like a lot of work compared to keeping the reservoir full and ignoring everything else. I like to automate things as much as I can justify.
