Very nice setup on your grow journal!!!! great detail and photos!!! You will find many people here with great advice to assist you along the way!! Your grow area is also very clean and neat looking!!

Is there any specific questions you had regarding your grow? So far you seem to be doing a great job and your plants look really healthy!! I see you are just entering flowering, nice!!! Now all the hard work finally starts to show.

Thanks :)
My lights run 10pm - 10am
Ill get some pictures of the stems to show the techniques tonight

I have a question about the clones though
How big should the root system be before I transplant?
I can see about 1/2" roots coming out of the rapid rooters on 3/6
I was thinking about 3 - 5 more days in the dome
Then ill transplant into small pots like the seeds are in, then into 3 gallon pots

Sound about right?

I do have 1 odd question...
Ive noticed quite a difference in the leafs on the plants
Plants 1 & 2 have slimmer razor edges, Plant 3 has huge leafs with bubble edges
All the seeds were bought from Nirvana in a 5 pack
Is it possible to be 2 different strains?

Looks almost Hybrid and Indica :/

Re: DankyKush Aurora Indica 400 Watt HPS (DAILY UPDATES) (ADVICE WANTED)

I have transplanted 2 clones into dixie cups that I drilled 5 holes in for drainage.
These 2 will be transplanted outside, I have dug 2 holes and at the bottom put a plastic water saucer to work as a pot. Ive been told to put wood at the bottom of the hole so water stops and roots don't grow too far, so plastic should work.
Also here is a current picture of my Veg Box with the clones and seeds.

How long should I wait before transplanting outside?
Also how much light should I give them inside?
They are currently getting the over light from the seeds. (See in Picture)
I was thinking in 2 days adding a CFL each over them then 5 days later transplanting outside.
I will be using my Fox Farm soil, will this be okay?

Thanks Guys

I have transplanted 2 of my clones into pots
I ran out of soil so I have to pick some more up today
To transplant the clones I...
-Mixed B1 at 6.3
-Watered Soil
-Planted Clone
-Watered Clone

My clones in my dome now are getting the lighting from the box but sitting right outside it cause it wont fit anymore
Is this okay?

When can I start watering the clones with nutes?
I need to water my seeds for the first time with nutes and I wanna mix the solution for both at the same time

Hey Danky!!! great journal so far and lovin the setup for your ladies.... I am on my first grow and have read a ton about growing, however, I am still new so take this with a grain of salt....

On my first grow, my first feeding upon clone transplant I used only distilled water, superthrive (similar to your b1) and olivia's cloning solution. I made sure my ppm's were very low...under 400. Upon my 2nd watering I wanted to keep it light with the nutrients since my soil was very fortified with worm casings, guano, happy frog soil and others, so for my 2nd watering, I used a organic tea....(bubbled worm casings, soil, organic compost, peruvian seabird guano) and used that for feedings. A week later from transplant was when I started to induce my earthjuice line...

Now, I have read that many using a fortified soil, will not give any nutrients for the first couple weeks and just use ph balanced water....I started force feeding my ladies early with nutrients, and so far so good.... I don't really know what the best way to do this is, however, feeding them lightly you should have no problems. I would recommend a ppm meter if you don't already have one...helps you keep an eye on how strong your feedings are...

Hope this helps...I would poke around 420's site to see what others have done, but this worked for me!!! Happy growing...I'm definitely here for the ride!!

Yeah I think im going to water with 6.3 B1 water for the first 2 weeks of the clones life then start at 1/3 strength then slowly up it. Thanks for the help ;)
