Hi ladies and gents and welcome to my greenhouse. i wasn't going to do any journal but had been taking pics and figured i have em so might as well share em.
Strains: my first time growing all of them from seed
Barneys Auto Critical Kush-Ruderalis x Indica
THSeeds Auto MK-Ultra Kush-mostly indica
THSeeds Original Bubblegum-mostly indica
HSO Blue Dream-70 stativa/30 indica
Karma genetics Orange bubba-mostly indica
The MK ultra is about 5 weeks into flower while the rest are still vegging. both of the auto were started at the same time but the Auto critical looks to be just starting to flower now.
Grown in a hoophouse which is 12x40 and 9.5' high in the center. The plants are planted in 12" raised beds with open bottoms so have tons of root space. Beds filled with soil blend
1/3 coir and peat blend
1/3 composted horse and goat manure
1/3 Perlite/ vermiculite blend
fish bone meal
neem seed meal
oyster shell meal
glacier rock dust
watered daily with non ph'd water from the hose.
Fed every couple weeks with either an AACT, Rabbit Manure Tea, and soon will be giving them a fermented botanical tea(comfrey, borage and chamomile)
We have been HOT, most days are high 30 to low 40 in the greenhouse with some getting even higher. humidity is around 70% most of the time
nothing serious but have had some flea beetle and a few caterpillars and worms. greenhouse is loaded with ladybugs, predatory wasps and even have a resident tree frog that likes to guard my plants
This is my first time growing anything in a greenhouse and also my first attempt at growing anything organically.
I had planned on just letting them grow and do some defoliation throughout the grow but they got huge fast and i had to butcher them to stumps several time throughout the season. im sure the yield will take a hit but oh well lesson learned.
