high all (lol pun intended) i figured id do a journal on my first attempt into organics im doing a los mix (living organic soil) from buildasoil.com. I wana go all natural so no bottle nothing jus a plain soil mix and ssts (seed sprout teas) and acts (aireated compost teas) and plain ro water ftw:cheer:

lights: in my flower forest aka the fire forest im using 4 mars hydro 150w led cubes and 2 t8 ballasts added to the front for side lighting at 12/12. And for my veg tent im using a 250w hps tht will be 18/6 on 18 hours off for 6

size containers: final container will be 5gal buckets.

strains: bagseed

and here is my big girl i call her my wmba star lol she is so fukn long i wuda thought she wud b a male if i didnt have fem seeds. can u still get a male even tho the seeds were feminized using the colloidal silver method? but yea hopefully she will produce sum big fat buds atleast i hope so:cheer: but yea thts it for now not to much going on rite this second but soon things will start firing off lol and :Namaste: to all who stop by and any helpful criticesem will be appreciated :thanks:

Hey there Blaze.. poppin in to see whats happening. Congrats on the harvest always good to see bottoms up eh? :high-five:

I was looking at your last journal. That sickly plant was over-watered. Harvest her ... she will attract the Borg if you let her go like that. Not worth keeping un-healthy plants around, they cause a lot more grief than they are worth. She will thank you when you fire up the buds.


Lets go organic... FTMFW!

I'm admiring your energy. Keep it positive and the goodness follows. :Namaste:

What genetics are you going with here?? .... Oh and post a link to this journal in your sig so others can see what you are up to!!

You're going to like organic and the medicinal effect of your buddage... props bro for taking the turn man, I'll be here watching and learning.

I love organic buds... Can't get enough.

Oh ... for purple buds ... wait till later in flower. Keep the room warm ... don't worry, the purps will come. Cold early will slow growth.

Think about what happens in nature - colder temps at the end of the flower cycle. patience... try and keep the temps in the 65-85F range for now if you can until you are on the back stretch.

Nothing wrong with green buds... Chemdawg looks like blah blah blah greens.. until you smoke it! Then you get to see colors~~~! :48: :smokin:

Beauty in the eye of the be-holder, right?

Good shit, Blaze. I also use a living soil. All organic too! Thought I was the only one who stood by this. Lololz...

I was going to use the Gro-kashi too but I decided on a compost tea instead to start cooking my soil up. There's not too much info out there on it either. Atleast from a rols standpoint anyways.

How'd you apply it?
Is your bin covered and does it stay covered while she cooks?

Thanx bro um quick question what is an egder?? Also do u use acts (aireated compost teas) or sst (seed sprout tea) during there life time?? Also I use ro water to water my girls I got a ro water filter system so I can pump my own water wenever I need it no tap water for my girls only the best:cheer: lol but I heard people saying they dnt ph there stuff any more wen doin organics n tht the water shud b a ph of 5.5 wen doing ro water but mine is 7.0 to 7.2 so I'm wondering if I shud still ph balance my water 2 feed my organic girls?? And if I do still need 2 ph the water then wud my ph down concentrate I have work in organic growing or no??

I use Fox Farms light warrior. It's soft enough not to harm the new roots. I transplant from my root cubes into solo cups. Once they root in their cups, I'll transplant again directly into my super soil and they do just fine.

The Borg = spider mites. They ruin a good party. You need to watch for them. The only bug that kills a harvest IMO. Brought on by HIGH temps (85F+) in flower room and humidity.

What's seeds are you going with? Seeds from a friend all good... what genetics are they?

On your journal link.. it's hard to figure out whats what... cant tell!

genetics are all broken up these r all his experiments sum succes and failures the seeds got all mixed 2gether but from wen he was doing a bunch of crossing these are the seeds so far its looking very white like buds smells kinda sourish but dont know the true genetics and as for my journal links its the third one but everytime i try to change it it keeps putting it the way it is it wont put the name like my first 2 journals idk why??

Hey there Blaze... nothing wrong with yellow leaves at the btm of the plant. I usually do not trim chop top or otherwise mess with my ladies with one exception. The laf at the btm of the plant I trim away until I get to the first set of branches that are long like 9" or so and are going to become part of the canopy and buds.

Trim all that little stuff including the large yellow leaves and any small ones and any small short branches that aren't going anywhere. It will improve air flow and you can see whats going on better as well. We want to keep all the big branches at this point, they turn into buds.

Looks like you got it on the white bucket that has some training going on. I just tried the training method you are using without topping.
2 plants exactly the same - clones .. same soil same lighting same everything. Guess what? The untrained plant is bigger by about 5" tall and same exact branching... they look like twins cept the trained on is a little smaller... not by much tho.

I will dry and trim the buds and weigh them and see how that turns out. Never know.. maybe shorter slightly fatter buds?? We will see in a week or so as its harvest time once again!!

I'm about to chop them.. waiting for the torrential rain to go away with the humidity. I don't like to chop when it's raining ... just me on that one; superstitious.

I will take them out set them up side by side and take pics ... and weights after drying.

Looking good ... experimenting with seeds. You should sprout a bunch like 20-30 and pick the healthiest 5 from the cups that have 3-5 nodes and grow them out. There's going to be a gem in there, always is! "Mining for greens"

The only problem with tht is I'm running out of seeds and I have no way 2 get more since the person who lets me use his card to order stuff online is all paranoid so won't let me order any seeds with his card n the guy who I got these seeds from is no longer around so yea I'm tryn to take it slow n hopefully I find a way 2 get more b4 I run out
