Blue Planet Nutrients: Sponsored Journal

Hello, and welcome to another one of my journals. I will let you know that you should drop your expectations at the door. This journal is going to be my home from now forward. This is where I’ll document anything new I try from mediums, to different equipment and techniques all while using blue planet nutrients line up.
Nothing planned or organized, just growing some plants. Learning some new things, and showing the benefits of a quality nutrient line up.

Im currently running BlueMax 2-part base, Easy weed, early bloomer, liquid blue, and root magic when transplanting. I’ve been using this nutrient line since January. I’ve been nothing but pleased since I received my package. I was struggling with “ph perfect” technology, but not anymore dropped all their bottles in the trash bin and haven’t looked back.

This is my Big Bud girl in DWC she’s in week 7 of flower. When she’s done I have a purple punch, and gelato that will be moving in the 4x4.

Of course, The nutrients were provided from @Blue Planet Nutrients right here on the site. I just responded to the thread they posted at the beginning of the year. Had a brief conversation, sent my info and package was on my doorstep few days later. Everything else I’ve purchased at retail myself.
Ive been working on a bloom room I was counting on being ready at this point, But ran into some road blocks that I just don’t have the free funds for at the moment. That’s put on the back burner for now. So I’m still playing in my 4x4 tent at the moment.

Inside the tent I’m running a 600watt hps lamp and a Mars Hydro TS1000. Another TS1000 over some wire racks housing my veg
Inkbird controllers for Temp. and RH

I’ll get some pictures together of everything, but since I’ve been treating my setup as temporary it’s a bit of a mess and sloppy workmanship. I can’t show that off and be proud of it. :laugh:

Your username gave me a chuckle, Mr. Bong.

I wish when they did the sponsored grows they would do a side by side with a clone using a different nutrient because what does it really tell you other than the plant survived if there isn’t some sort of control to compare against?

I’m really hoping I win POM some month because they are giving away as a prize an organic easy to use two part system so if I win I am planning on doing a comparative grow between that organic product, Geoflora and Mega Crop with identical clones.

Day 55 of Flower:

I lowered the nutes another touch on day 53, .7EC(376ppm) PH 6.0

I tried to get a few pictures through my Loupe for trichs but not clear enough to show. They’re getting cloudy and pistols are still curling in. She may go a little past week 9 we will see.

I'll sub up to this journey. Let's see what kinds of experiments and things you can come up with while using these nutes, will be fun to see!

Hey guys, this journal is still my plan. Just trying to get caught up on the outside. I’m running 5 Original Glue Fems (Photos) in FF Ocean Forest at the moment. I only use soil when I’m planning to be away for a few days. Clones will be taken when I get back and that’s when the perpetual system should take off. I’ll still be using Blue Planet Nutrients only and my 2 new TS1000s from the 4/20 giveaway are rocking the new 4x2x60” veg tent. With the 600watt hps in flower. Slowly getting there, I apologize for the delays.

Did finally get the ladies cloned, took just one clone directly from the top. All clones were approximately 6” long.
Process as follows.
45 degree cut, dipped into clone x gel, straight to rapid rooter, then under the dome. These ladies will be relocated to the 4x4 to start the bloom phase.

The ladies have been moved into the 4x4. My 600watt hps is still the only light I have that will cover my flower area evenly. I really NEED to convert to all LED but the funds just aren’t there at the moment. The temps will be my main concern as we move into the dog days of August.
I’ll be looking into the @Mars Hydro TS3000 for this space in the future.
