GanjaPreneur Tackles The Octopot System #2!


Well-Known Member
Well, here we are again, let me start by saying we are well into this second grow and I am already starting to prepare for my 3rd grow. I will preface by saying this will be the final grow with the Octopot system for now as I will be setting up a full hydro system moving forward. This change is by no means a fault of the Octopot as it is doing fantastic and always has(you will see below) :D.

Here are the basics...

Started this grow on July 8th, 2019 and placed the seeds into show glasses to begin germination. As you will see below we started with a few others and ended up with only 3 that survived. Pretty disappointed considering the 1st grow I had 100%. Meh live and learn.


The Blueberry, Obi-Wan, and Wedding Cake all made Germinated however did not make it out of the soil. A second Gelato was successfully germinated a day or 2 after this photo.

Seeds were placed in soil on July 10th at approximately 10pm.
Plants were switched to Flower on Aug 30th, 2019.

Below I will post random photos of the grow up until today Sept 9th, 2019.

Do-Si-Dos will be the Sativa-ish looking plant or the biggest one through-out the grow.





Trying to get a natural light picture of the colour.

Had to add a second net.. Still trying to manage my Scrog abilities.. You will see a 3rd net added once into flowering. Each net gets progressively bigger the higher it gets.




This would take us to Aug 26th.

More to come.

Some more pics I took today. The Gelato's are starting to produce their bud sites. The bad news, they are getting tall.. Last grow - Short bushy, this grow - too tall.... One of these grows ill get it on point :reading420magazine: Other than the height I think everything is looking pretty decent.

Did a feeding on Monday Sep 09 brought the ppm to 950(ish) the Do-si-dos got a bit higher at 1050. Ph ranged from 6-6.3.

Each plant drank about 4 gallons of water/nutrients and the reservoir was topped up to 6 gallons.






^^^ That was a horrible photo.... :(


Next round of photos will come sometime on the weekend.

Stay medicated my friends, :Rasta:

Here are a few more pics as promised.

From Friday,



(Added a bit more Cal-Mag to the regular feeding of the back left Gelato as it appears to be a bit low)

Now the rest are from Today after the defoliation and feeding.








Will do a midweek update next,

Until then, :Rasta:

Look forward to seeing how your Do-Si-Dos from Canuk Seeds go, as I’m into week 7 of veg with mine. Training got a bit away from me but coming back around to what I originally wanted to do. Hope you get a good haul from everything
Thanks, yea it is definitely the furthest along. Liking the grow you got going on, I would be way to scared to grow that many in a 4x4 tent.

Looks like a tight setup.
Ive thought about the jump to hydro myself but not quite ready yet :nervous-guy:
Yea I hear ya, honestly the only reasons I am switching is I purchased a new car and dont want to put a pale of soil in the backseat...:rolleyes: Also a lot cleaner in the tent and I find it easier to manage nutrients.

It was feeding day so I decided to do an update while I was at it... The Gelato's have blown up. Anyone who is curious as to when to flip, I would flip asap haha the damn things grew crazy. The top budsite is literally touching the quantum board...Should be interesting to see how that one turns out haha

I have raised the light as high as I possible can. (next build will have a different layout for the carbon filter).






I will post a mid week update,

Smoke 'em if you got 'em. :lot-o-toke:

Oh that top one is going to be crispy for sure... The others below it are looking extra frosty though so they might be in a nice position, we shall see. :popcorn:
