Hey Folks, hopefully i can post pictures here easily and do a minimalist thread. Yes, been away from the plant for 9 long grueling years. so, i had gotten gear ahead of time waiting for a window of opportunity to grow again. I HAVE NOT USED ANY OF THE NEW STUFF, NOT READY YET. Except for some grostones used to pot up the rooted clones. rooted clones in order of size biggest to smallest they are 1. Green Crack pulled out of hydro rooter with very long tap root etc. : I wanted the green crack because of great taste and speed of flower and also to do some pollen chucking eventually. 2. Master Kush a small rooted cut that was done in a sponge type rooter : Master Kush is tried and true, stands alone as good puff and makes nice crosses too. 3. really small AK47 done in same type of sponger rooter and from the same source : Ak47 needs no intro at all. i wanted power with out too much of a indica type stone even though i prefer indica's. Yield is god and flower time is not too bad. makes great crosses if you choose a good match for it. Hopefully it will be an AK47 worth keeping around . I've never puffed AK47, and by the time i actually wanted it the bomb ass AK47 was not easy to find from serious seeds and in the community was held closely by only a few and not shared much if at all. Back then my targeted strain from Serious was their Chronic. I tried a small sample from a tiny plant i grew as a tester. it was very flavorful in a citrus type of way that stood out. i can't recall much more that long ago. the stone was excellent too. i had to kill two beautiful big moms that were going to be flowered easily yield 3 zips a piece. it was not to be because they were fucking mite magnets extraordinaire and were running my whole situation. i tried to treat them and i was forced to save the rest and kill them. i almost cried too smdh. pt. 2 are fresh cuts that were put into a groClone far too late and have suffered because of it. mentality that isn't sharp like before is not easy to deal with and quite frustrating to say the least. fresh cuts were as follows 1. Blue Dream which i made 4 cuts from the one big BD cut = somewhat iffy but one decent one still 2. Blue Dream that was already yellowing and is now already 86 3. Green Crack looks ok so far first snafu was the pump was dislodged from the side of the cloner. i went to check and noticed the water was real warm, i got ice to adjust it. so when i pulled the lid up i must have dislodged the pump. I'll be looking for a couple of stoned bubblers to add some more OXYGEN. even if it's only to use later for clones that will be used to put in the tent. So, basically will run them in a gorilla shorty tent ($$$ smdh lol) because if a move has to go in the basement a regular height tent won't fit. grrrr. medium will be coco coir and brought grostones to aid aeration and also because i might run a couple hempy buckets eventually. i already have perlite left over but need to find that damn bag. it's not small so duhh . running coco specific Botanicare nutes = CNS17 Coco Bloom Formula 2-1-3 CNS17 Coco Grow Formula 3-1-2 CNS17 Ripe 1-5-4 I wish they had kept the original formula as it was great and very economical too. they figured a way to dial it back to make more money and add a 3rd component for bud development = hyped/bull shit. i grabbed 1 lg grow, 1 lg bloom, and 1 small container of the hype bloom stuff too. So, will compare with or with out with the same plants being equal Lighting = 600 hps digital non- adjustable (i might have gotten and enhanced spectrum bulb since i will only use one. the 400 hps i wanted to use in early veg went ghost. I'm hoping my 250 mh works still as that is supposed to be my main veg light for clones and moms. as long as i know the strains i'll run veg light 20/4 or 18/6 if and when i use seeds so they will declare sex sooner. standard type nursery pots, some oddballs, and maybe some plastic bag type pots too. to be determined soon. no need to have pots more than 2 gallons using coco.
