"Fall-Back Plan '15"
I'm falling back indoors and going for a hat trick; three harvests before springing back outdoors.
Full disclosure: I hope this will be a high brix grow but I am NOT using Doc's kit this time around. I love Doc's stuff and greatly appreciate his efforts. I've had this soil in totes for months. It is left over from my previous grow and until I use it, I don't have a good place to cook my next batch of kit soil. This is my solution. Use what I currently have and get to cookin' my next batch of DBHBB soil. I already have my next round of DBHBB ingredients.
The line up is one each of:
Ace of Spades
Shark Shock CBD
All plants started as clones with the PB and AS cuttings coming from my outdoor grow. I'm very interested to see how they compare inside to outside. All plants were up-potted to 1 gal pots on September 14th. They were then up-potted into 7 gal pots on October 4th. Currently running 18/6, I plan to flip them to 11/13 this weekend. They are all growing like weeds . I hope I didn't wait too long.
My soil is a mix of local potting soil which is similar to our beloved ProMix HP (but about half the price) - 70% peat moss and 30% perlite. To it I added the same amendment I used outdoors: feather, kelp, alfalfa, soy bean and bone meals, worm castings, rock dust, potash, BSM, liquid kelp, sea salt, azomite, humic acid, oyster flour, and myco. My plan is to add water only. We'll see how that works and I will adjust on the fly as needed.
The big challenge is my limited space. Those of you who followed my previous journal have seen it. For any newcomers, it measures 33" square and is a shower stall. I run a 600 watt HPS fixture with cool tube and a 6" 420 CFM inline duct fan. The fan and a small heater are on thermostats to help control temperatures. I do not have any controls in place for RH.
Welcome to my shower
This is what the crew looked like about one month ago.
This is them last week (gawd, I hate pictures under HPS or LED)
This journal got off to a bit of a rocky start due to harvesting my outdoor grow and non-420 stuff. By the end of October I plan to be back at it and give this run the full attention it deserves. I hope you will join me! Updated pictures this weekend and more soon...
