Biggobelly's - RDWC - Cotton Candy - Wonder Woman - Aurora Indica - 1st Time Grow

Starting out growing with 2 seeds of each:
Nirvana's Aurora Indica (fem)
Nirvana's Wonder Woman (fem)
Delicious's Cotton Candy (fem)

Germination

Day 1-
Three small brandy snifters with Ph'd RO water (Ph - 5.67) - two seeds in each glass
Day 2-
all six seeds now have little white nubs at the end...end of day and roots had started on all the girls. Soaked rockwool cubes in RO water with 1/4 strength Clonex solution and 1/4 strength GreenFuse root for 30 minutes. Shake out excess water gently so as to not compact the rockwool (I loosely cup my fingers, cradle the cube and sweep in a downward arc). Opened up a hole in the top for the seeds and let them sit for 6 hours.
Day 3-
Placed popped seeds in the rockwool and gently covered the holes. Placed them in a humidity dome and gave the inside a misting of the Clonex/GreenFuse water and put them on a heated mat set at 75 degrees.
Day 4-
Misted the inside of the dome. quick light mist across the bottom of the tray for added humidity.
Day 5-
One CC just woke up and is getting up to greet the world :happybday:

My plan is to veg these in a RDWC with drip using AN PhPerfect Sensi Grow A&B - six 5 gallon buckets with a 30 gallon reservoir under a 1000W MH.
 
Day 6 -
Three more girls joined the party last night making 4 out of the 6 seeds, seedlings.

Well...my Aurora Indica's root grew out the bottom of the cube and out the side. Thankfully, I noticed it before the lights went on. Took a pair of sterile tweezers and nudged it over to grow towards the corner of the cube. It has it's first leaves just starting to come out. Hope I won't have to put her in a bucket already... Still nothing on one of my Wonder Woman and Aurora Indica.
 
The second Aurora Indica finally came out to play on December 28th (10 days to break out) and she's got a little bit of an issue...she doesn't look like the other kids. She's shorter on one side and kind of scrunched up.

Day 16 -
Sorry haven't had time to update my grow as I was busy getting the plumbing all together for the RDWC/Drip system. As it was, I took too long and my girls suffered. Running a RDWC/Drip system with six 5 Gallon buckets with 3/4 inch tubing connecting them to a 32 gallon res.

I moved my only living Wonder Woman to her own area.
I put her in a GH Power Grower under T-5 lights and she seems to be happy, but I am not so much so. The Power Grower spits nutes everywhere. Plan is to clone off of her.

Update 011015
Topped one Cotton Candy and One Aurora Indica (she looks like she's leaning toward a sativa dominant phenom) and when I went to top my freak Aurora Indica (which is heavily Indica with really broad, squat leaves and only an inch tall by the third node) at the thrid node...is a three way split. So I'm going to have three mains. Really looking forward to the next few weeks.

I ended up running 35 gallons instead of 30 and started my girls out at 1/4 strength for the first week. My sativa'ish Aurora Indica nearly startved, but all other girls were happy. Second week in veg I bumped it up to 1/2 strength (using AN Sensi-Grow A&B, B-52 and Voodoo Juice). Three days in and the girls look hungry...not as nice and green as usual. PH is 5.7 and EC 1.2 so I bumped it up to full strength today. EC now at 1.6 PH is 5.8 and water temp is 71 F. Room is sitting between 72 and 75F and 40% RH (and rising as I had to add a humidifier to my rooms).

Hope all is well in your world.

Is this grow still alive?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.

Sending you lots of love and positive energy.

Sorry for the lack of updates, but work has me going 80 hours a week now. Being my first grow, this has been a learning experience. The girls are doing well, just getting ready to switch them over to 12s. Here are some pics: (Learned NOT to accidentally douche your plants with nute water...so don't mind the yellow/brown burnt leaves)

yeah...ignore the yellow and brown

And this is my Wonder Woman now...

I've been running full strength on my nutes and only one plant does not like it. My "normal" Aurora Indica. I backed off to 2/3 strength and she is still complaining...I might have to pull her from the group and set her off on her own. I really don't want to back down my EC if everyone else is loving it...

The stalks on these girls are nice and beefy (that is the handle of my hammer to show the size of the stalk in relation:

The bad thing was that my freak Aurora Indica did exactly what she is...she freaked when I switched over her nutes and lights. She lost all of her fan leaves, branches drooped so bad that I lost one of the mains, but she has come back and is producing more new growth that looks nice and healthy.

I'll post more as time goes on
 
My Wonder Woman (on the left) had been turned into a Mother and I have taken about 4 clones from her so far and the Mother on the right is my Kaya Gold from Nirvana Seeds:

My clone from my Aurora Indica Freak is off the hook (can't bring myself to top her):

I have also started two Afghan Kush from seed and both are genetic freaks (two on the left are the Afghan, Cotton Candy clones in the front and right, back middle is the Aurora Indica Freak clone).

Week 3 updates. Pulled my original Aurora Indica freak out of flower after the first week. All of my other plants started developing their first hairs but that one did not like flower and I almost lost her. Here are the rest of the girl...I'll even let you look under their skirts

So the grow is done the girls led to slaughter and now they are drying and curing. Preliminary looks good. Tight big buds, huge colas (leg sized) lots and lots of hairs and resin. here's what some of it looks like.
