Looking good man

Is this your first time using TNT nutrients ??
Good luck with your first photo grow !!!!
I'm growing skunk #1 btw
 
Re: Crocodocs First Photoperiodic - Ice Kush & Cream Caramel - 250W DS-HPS - Daily Up

Thanks stonecutter,

no i used TNT Complex on my first Autos before. But it doesnt seem to work with autos well. With my 2nd grow i switched to BloomComplex from the beginning with them and it worked out fine. But i will use TNT Complex on these Photos, i plan a long veg with a lot LST to prepare the,m for a Screen with beginning Flower. So i think TNT could be useful because of its lower amaount of P and K.

Skunk #1, what a smell, what a taste :love:

I had to fix the Stems with Toothpicks, because all 4 Ladys hanging to one side of their Pot. In my Opinion, Light Bulb was to close to the Plants, they tried to avoid heat Damage. Pictures where taken after 2 Hours of Light after fixing, and it worked out pretty well. I just have some Problems with Cream Caramel #1, look at her Leaves. Anyone have an Idea?

Pot preparation for transplanting

Step 1:
Put a ground layer of Hydro-Clay at the bottom of the Pot, i used 4-8mm granulation here


Step 2:
Wash everything with clear Water. There will be a lot of Dust in your pots now. we don´t want this in here


Step 3:
Fill your Pots up with Soil. There are a lot of buckets in Air-Pots, make sure to fill them all up properly. Otherwise your Air-Pot will not work as intended.

Day 13


Temp: 22,9-26,4°C, 73,2-79,5°F
Humidity: 45-65%


Today i had to transplant the other 3 Ladys, so i prepared everything i needed for it.


I made sure absolutely everything was there ;)


I took the Hydro Clay and then washed it first to remove all of the Dust on it.


Then i put on some gloves and grabbed the Plant like this...


... and then turned it arround


After that, it was easy to remove the old Pot. I checked the Roots and everything was fine


Now i had to put the Plant into her new Pot...


...and fill it up with Soil


To make watering more easy i put a final layer of Hydro Clay on top of the Pot


At the end i just watered my Ladys carefully and slowly, to make sure that all the soil is moist. I used a solution with 2 drops Supervit and 25 ml RootComplex at 10l of Water

Re: Crocodocs First Photoperiodic - Ice Kush & Cream Caramel - 250W DS-HPS - Daily Up

Are you gonna keep the girls in those pots for the rest of the grow? Just curious cause it looks like it could be a pain in the ass to try and get them out of there if you needed to transplant again. Sorry, I always look at things like that. (though I dig those pots, very cool looking)
 
Re: Crocodocs First Photoperiodic - Ice Kush & Cream Caramel - 250W DS-HPS - Daily Up

I´m gonna keep these girls into this pots. But if i decide to move to bigger Pots for whatever reason, it would be absolutly simple and easy to transplant with this Pots. Here is a quick Video i found on Youtube to explain :)

How do you think they compare to fiber-pots/smart pots?
 
Re: Crocodocs First Photoperiodic - Ice Kush & Cream Caramel - 250W DS-HPS - Daily Up

How do you think they compare to fiber-pots/smart pots?
I do think that they compare about the same. Booth are working with Air-Proning, what means that when the Roots grow out of its Container, they come in contact with Air, causing the Root to die back, causing the plant to build a massive amount of new roots.
