Grow Journal of the Month: Jan 2017
Whats up everyone?:lot-o-toke::welcome:

Really excited to bring you this grow, featuring Remo Nutrients, and the same set up were rocking in the current BignStrange journal! For those who were part of that journal, thank you, and cheers to more insanity and fun!

With that, lets blow this tent up XD :party:

Ill start with a little story about how this journal came about!

Ive been growing for about 2.5 months now, with a couple of half assed attempts before buying indoor equipment and going at it. I currently have another grow journal documenting my first attempt at growing with nutes n training and all that good stuff, and its been a really good run! Anyways, Ive been following Swaggs grow and seeing his amazing results, and started watching UrbanRemo on youtube! I kinda binge watched the entire channel and continue to look for new vids, the guy is pretty entertaining :p:thumb:

Moving on, my hair is long, its winter, so I messaged the guys at Remo Brands to see if they'd hook up a hat for a fellow BC grower, in exchange for publicity of course :p anyways it was a couple days later and this showed up at my door!

All the notes Ive taken up until now


12/25
Peat Clones-Remo Hydro Backup
Transplanted into solo cups, still in dome for 2 days under CFL before going under a ViparSpectra V450 until I need to fire up the Mars 192
Watered into solo cups w/ 4mL/G Velo Kelp and 4 mL/G Natures Candy
VeloKelp - Remo Nutrients | Premium Plant Nutrients and Supplements
Nature's Candy - Remo Nutrients | Premium Plant Nutrients and Supplements
.
.
.
12/27 Clone Res Change Remo Grow
In 5 gallons-20mL Grozyme, 20mL Velo Kelp
.
.
.
12/30 Clone Res Change Remo Grow
In 5 gallons-20mL Grozyme, 20 mL Velo Kelp

And that gets us caught up, Ill make sure to grab pics soon :p The Grozyme is the only part of my old nutrient regiment I'm keeping around, until i decide i want to try without it. As far as i know its a completely unique product and its been taking good care of my roots so i wanna keep that going. That being said if the Remo Nutes just kick butt I may try cutting it out completely, the grozyme is definitely expensive.

Lets see what we can do with 7 bottles :3

Cheers yall!

Peat back up clones in the, what will be, a very full mother tent

And the peat stragglers, just barely pushing roots out

They're at 69F so I can't be too hard on em

N then our hydro babes

You can see how they use more energy the closer they are to the light!

Can't wait to see what you do with the monstercrop cuttings Big. Should be epic. Do you intend to throw a few hydro buckets in?

I'm here[emoji111]️
Woo! Glad to have you Newty!

I hope we get 16 out of 19 with strong roots so we can do a full monster crop run. It won't be too interesting as I'm just doing a kind of sog to reduce veg time, but it'll be interesting to see how it turns out for sure.

I'm playing with hydro in the back of my mind, I'll probably skip the buckets and go straight to RDWC as it suits my personality better lol but that's for another tent, and another visa bill lol [emoji14]

Your journals getting me inspired to grab the peripherals tho, if I'm gunna add another cloner, I'll need more gear [emoji848]

RDWC is my next tackle too. As soon as I am capable of running more than a 2x2, e.g, when I move out, I intend to run RDWC in a 4x4 with a 1kw HID

Hehe start aiming for that 1 g per watt n you'll be bathing in trichromes [emoji7]

Can't wait to have more space, lack of space almost prevents me from going hydro, I might be able to convert 1 tent but if I go with my current plan that's all I'll have space for. Well see lol I'm kinda down with learning promix and getting as good as grandpa tokin with my medium lol [emoji14]

All good things shall come with time :3

What really got me into hydro was the explosive, daily-train growth I've witnessed in veg. I like soil because I've been successful in it, but it's the difference between pro-stock and top fuel drag racing when it comes to production.

Seeing what it does for veg makes all sorts of ideas float in my mind regarding overall flower structure and size. It also helps that PH is irrelevant to me so I can just focus on EC and really tune in.

Yea, the growth is unbelievable :S

There's a number of grows I could list that I'm watching, that have made me jealous af. There's definitely a lot of potential with hydro and large scale it's definitely the way to go! I'm excited to get some experience with soiless and sampling some product and then comparing it to hydro. Exciting stuff!

I know you say PH is irrelevant to you but it's not really is it? Like if your ph went to 1 for some crazy reason would that not F you up? Lol like Tunkers frying his DWC babies with an acid atmosphere XD

Anyways ya chelated nutes are dope but I don't trust them 100%

Remo nutes are supposed to be really easy, not have to worry about ph or ppm, just follow the schedule and it's supposed to work! I guess we'll find out. I still like to swing my ph around based on what uptake issues I'm seeing, it seems to help keep them in the zone despite running chelated nutes and adding fulvics for additional uptake. Remo nutes comes with all that stuff in the 7 bottle line up too which is nice, I feel like it would be a great set up.for hydro, maybe with some z7 to keep things clean.

Well yeah any crazy drops or rises in PH would be bad but I made this water up last Sunday, aside from dropping to 5.8 a few times, ph quickly corrects and remains alkaline at 7.0-7.4 regardless of adjustment.

My tap water is a little over 150ppm at 7.8 so I think that helps. They recommend 150 or less. So far working out well, will see once root exudates etc begin altering water composition.

Long story short I trust the chelates so far.

Will definitely give you an honest appraisal by the end. I feel like you have a talented ability to learn from other people's experience hehe. Hope my info is helpful to you Big homie. We gotta chill one day

Z7 is definitely the bees knees. I had light unknowingly in my res for like 5 days. No slime or anything on air lines and what not. Plus roots coming out of cube and bone white fishbone roots
