    Hey fellow lovers of the GANJ, this is my third grow operation. That being said its the first one where i put this much effort and $ into it, the first two were when i was a teenager. It's been a long battle up to this point , hence the title of this journal. I'm trying to get the phattest nugs i possibly can and i know that you good folks here at RIU can help me out with that. So you guys are more than welcome to tag along and all comments , tips, and criticism is welcome. Here we go!


    Strains : 1 gsc , 1 afghani kush (so i was told) begining.jpg begining 2.jpg begining 2.jpg
    Soil: 50/50 mix of FFOF & Happy Frog
    Techniques: SCROG (1st time) super cropping , and topping
    Nutes: General Organics Base line and Bio Bud
    Light: 1 600w Led
    Grow space: 5x4x3 grow tent (craigslist $30 SCORE)

    About 1/2 way thru veg i realized i had a spider mite problem
    sprayed the shit outta them with azamax and had some lady bugs roaming around in there for a few weeks.
    should have kept spraying because i hadn't realized they were back until
    after i flipped the switch which was less than a week ago.

    12/13/16 : lights out for 36 hours
    12/15/16 noon lights back on 12/12
    12/16/16 :realized spider mites were back did some spraying & pruning
    12/18/16 sprayed with dish soap and fed GO Bio Thrive Bloom

    canopy.jpg canopy 2.jpg canopy3.jpg The one on the left is the Afghani and the right one is the GSC.
    GSC was a runt at first, just wouldn't grow but then one day it kicked it into high gear and took off canopy.jpg
    P.S. Sorry for the pic quality, i have a crappy phone

    curling.jpg so in my war effort against the mites i sprayed them down dawn dish soap. Not doing that again , my plants didn't like that at all . All the new growth came in curled , uneven and wilted.

    Besides the curling and wilting i realized i had some sort of nute deficiency or toxicity , so i flushed them down . I ph'd my runoff and its at about 6.8 and after some research it seemed that i had a cal mag deficiency, so i added some from the GO line. The last pick is of a leaf that looks like a middle finger. i thought it was funny but its also one of the leaves with the more extreme curling.

    Ok so fast forward to 1/1/17 (Happy new year guys:bigjoint:) All new growth seems to be coming in normal, no wilting or curling i'm at week 3 day 4 of flowering, continued spraying with azamax and habanero pepper concoction. Starting to see the first signs of nuggage, hopefully the mites are gone . I will remain on high alert. These pics are from a few days ago, i cant wait to see my babies (been outta town for a couple days for the holiday).
