While doing my 1st grow, I took clones off 3 mother plants. And since this is the New Year, why not start it off with a bang and a new grow journal.
This is part 2 of Mota's First Indoor Grow - White Widow, Northen Lights & Big Blue
The clones were taken on November 30th, so they are a little over a month old. Out of 16 clones, 2 didn't grow much taller then 4'' and the soil was very very wet, I think he might of overwatered those two, so I tossed them. The other 2 were fairly tall but the branchs were very small. The mother is like that too, very sativa. I don't want to grow a sativa dominant strain at the moment, so I tossed those 2 and the mother.
After trimming the branchs at the bottom of each remaining clone, I set the 5 smallest ones back in the veg closet. I want them to take their time and stretch a tad bit more.
I then cleaned the flowering room, set the light at a proper height, set the timer to 18/6 and here we go. (They were under CFLs before today, now I have the 400w HPS over them.)
The mothers are autoflowering, so I'll just put them in 12/12 too I suppose
I will transplant the clones in 9'' pots tomorrow and start 12/12 a couple days after that.
The shortest are about 8'', tallest about 12'', I am thinking of doing a SOG grow. A friend of mine has chicken wire, I'll try and drop by tomorrow and pick some up. How should I go about placing the chicken wire? I don't like the idea of having one big piece for all the plants. I think I would prefer one piece of wire per plant/pot. Is that possible?
