Yea I'll put up a report when the time comes. I like at least three weeks cure but I will be testing these Green House as soon as the buds are dry. I'm about to pot up the next round of clones and I need to find out which strains are worth keeping ASAP.im looking fwrd to hearing how the GWS it is, i hope you post or pm me after that first try mj! ,how long do you cure for?
mared nutes list please! i wanna copy you hahaha.
Nice, I like to take them all cloudy.Right on man. The trichomes under the scope are almost all cloudy but a few clear left and no amber so I'm thinking about a week left.
I think you explained it quite well. And it looks like you've got everything dialed in perfectly.OK, it's kind of complicated to explain every little subtlety of my nute regimen but I will try. To start off, this works awesome in coco between 5.5 and 6.2 ph. If you change either of those conditions nute uptake happens differently so I can't guarantee your success. For veg I use Botanicare Pure Blend Pro. But that doesn't have enough P for coco so you need a fair amount of Ionic Boost. Start clones out at 6mL/gal Pure Blend, 2mL/gal Ionic Boost. As the cutting grows it will need even more P so by the time I hit flower I am using almost equal parts Pure Blend and Ionic Boost. Usually like 12mL/gal Pure Blend, 10mL/gal Ionic Boost. This will seem like a lot of Boost but I've been tweaking this formula for a while and it works. For seedlings you will want to be more gentle obviously.
Now flower is where the magic really happens. Look at this chart --> http://www.advancednutrients.com/nutcalc3public/ Bookmark that mofo. On the pulldown menus at the top change the Nutrient Base to "Sensi 2 Part", change the Formula to "Plus Program Bloom - Medium Levels", change the reservoir size to 3.79 L so the chart will display in mL/gal. This is the chart I follow. I know it pretty much by memory at this point. You don't need all that stuff they listed. Most is not necessary. You will only need to look at the Sensi Bloom A & B, Big Bud, Overdrive, Carboload, and Barricade. There are two ways in which I deviate from this chart. I don't use Bud Blood. Tried it, didn't notice much of a difference. So instead I use 10mL/gal (1 g/gal) Big Bud in the first week. Also I do not use Overdrive which is 1-5-4. I think Ionic Boost at 0-5-6 works much better and it is almost 1/2 the price. Use 8-10mL/gal until you start flush.
Another note is that I've been trying out this B'Cuzz Hydromix HP as a medium. For 30% more of the price of a bag of coco I get 5+ times the usuable volume of Hydromix (it comes in giant compressed cubes). It is a spaghnum moss and perlite mix. I've taken what would be almost two bags worth of coco off of the Hydromix cube and I've barely made a dent. So far I am treating it just like coco and my first round of plants in it just went into flower. Looks good so far.
Yea I like to see just a couple amber trichs. Like 5-10%. Flush for a week max. I use to not flush at all and that was cool too but the deficiencies associated with flush bring out the colors in the strains with that tendency so it makes for better bag appeal.Nice, I like to take them all cloudy.
Must be honest, I don't let them amber too much because that's on the down side of potency.
Not less, just different, ... I still like a bit of 'upidy' in my indys.
So I pick 'em cloudy.
What I love about coco is the shortened flush time.
I hardly flush at all in coco, 2 to 3 days most.
What's your theology with flushing in coco?
It really doesn't hold onto a lot of salts, like soil, in my world.
Thanks Jerry! I hope I covered everything.I think you explained it quite well. And it looks like you've got everything dialed in perfectly.
Right on. I'm thinking about starting a new journal once these Green House girls are chopped. I ordered some Subcool/TGA seeds so that should be a nice starting point for a new J.just read like 75% of your journal, loved it, those buds are massive! As a result of ur chem tweaks and ph knowledge i suppose. should really update ur tags from newb to like.... general or something! props + rep
So pretty much you mean what smells the best, right? The smell is really the best gauge of potency I have right now. I would say it is still Great White Shark but White Rhino smells great too. GWS smells like sweet rotten mangoes when you put your nose to it but when you rub with your fingers it leaves a skunky diesel smell on them. White Rhino smell like a hashy pineapple and also leaves a bit of a skunky smell on the fingers but not as strong. Lemon Skunk also has that strong lemon candy smell and it looks like it's growing trichomes on top of trichomes at this point. All these smells are continually changing so it's really hard to say which will be funkiest in the end.as far as your are now out of the greenhouse seeds, which is strongest strains? gws?
Yeah, Mared got them from attitude. (page 95 of this grow thread) https://www.rollitup.org/grow-journals/67992-newb-closet-coco-grow-400w-95.htmlsounds great, im sold lol. did you order from attitude seeds? and what seed bank sells roadkill? oh and if you did order from attitude seeds what free ones did you get?
absolutely amazing! glad to see that lemon started to fattin up (still small imo but worthy)
My bad dude..... I have other forums I belong to and sometimes I completely forget about journals for months at a time. Looks like we left off when the first round of GHS plants were still growing so a lot has happened since then LOL. Turns out Great White Shark was not really the best bud at all. It was fucking Lemon Skunk WTF?!?! The Lemon Skunk was most potent by far and the taste is some of the strongest I've ever grown.... but it doesn't taste like weed really. It tastes exactly like an apple. It's crazy, you can taste the peel in there and everything. The yield is shit but it is one of only three of the GHS strains I continue to grow. So here's some pics I've accumulated and also some final thoughts on these strains.ok man whats going on it was just getting to the good part. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jos5pOIQMQ4
Thanks man. I forgot that I had some more cool pics saved up from Bubba Kush and BC Roadkill grows.Great update Mared and report on the strains.
Good work mate.
Look forward to what your gonna do with Subcools genes.
Those little ones look real good already.
