    619ster's First Grow: Pure Royal Kush July 2010

    Well, after reading many journals and being intrigued with the 420mag community, I have decided to start a journal of my own. Originally was only planning on doing a grow with no journal and just lurk around seeking info. But with all the positive support I have seen on this site, I think a journal will help me get the very best out of my grows as I learn and experiment. I still have much to get in order before I can give full details of my grows as I am still in process of completing my grow room, but nonetheless I started on the grow already and surpassed my expectations and still running strong. I will post pics leading up to what I now have going on and let you all see the progress for yourself. All tips, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome. More details coming as well as pics.

    High 619ster!

    We are glad you decided to start a journal! Not only is it a lot of fun to be able to show off the fruits of your labor but it also makes asking for help a lot easier when we can see what you have been doing and how the plants are looking! I for one am eager to see what you have going on over there! You have me waiting on the edge of my seat in anticipation for your photos!

    Best wishes and good vibes for you and your garden!

    Welcome.

    The community is what got me. I'm registered to several forums, but I rarely visit the others these days and then only to clean up some posts and replies. I think this is the best learning forum of them all.

    I'm looking forward to following your grow.

    Well here we go! Time for the details of my grow as of now. Like I said it is ever changing, and I'm still in the process of establishing my designated grow space. So details of grow now, will be different in a week or two. The strain I am growing is a Indica dominant hybrid consisting of Pure Kush crossed with Royal Kush. Right now I am using 6 inch net pots with Hydroton as my medium. I used a regular Sterlite tub/tote as the res. Cut holes in the lid myself and placed net pots side by side. Using a dual outlet air pump and two small airstones for aeration. Nutrients being used are General Hydroponics Flora Series (Lucas Formula 0-5-10, will move up to 0-8-16 when I get my new light). Lighting as of now is cfl warm whites 2700K (about 150 watts) since I am now flowering. During veg I was using daylight cfl 6500K (26-100 watts) starting with one bulb and adding more as growth increased. Currently I am expecting my Spectra 180 LED lamp from ------------ as I expect to save energy, and dont want to deal with heat issues. If theres anything I am missing or if theres anything anybody would like to know feel free to ask. Pictures coming!

    I grew from seed and did not really expect to make it this far so no seedling pics. Seeds were not feminized. Here is my fresh setup once seedlings vegged for a week n a half or so. I sprouted from rockwool, then just burried it in the hydroton rockwool n all.

    As you can see, one of them is a monster compared to the other. IDK why but growth has always exploded from the one nearest the wall. Maybe mother plant characteristics?

    And they're off!! I vegged for about 35 days total. all pics are about 3-5 days apart. Pretty nice growth rate for my first try at hydro huh? At least I seem to think

    And here is the most recent pics of my emerging forest. Foliage getting dense. 12/12 lighting is now underway. Can't wait to see flowers! I'll be dumbfounded if any turn out to be males. But everything about em screams females!
