LED Multi-Strain Grow - 2016

Thread starter #1
This is my first journal but my 3rd grow. My tent is 4x4 gorilla lite line. I started with 1 GB450 and 1 90w red from Dorm Grow, on 12/11 I added another GB 450 and 2 90w red. I have a hurricane 6" vent fan hung from my ceiling and a generic carbon filter inside the tent. Active Intake from a 6" duct fan. Im still trying to figure out my intake situation but for now its working. The fem cheese seeds started 11/3/15, clones in soil 11/11/15, Fem Afghan seeds started 11/18. Seeds are from AMS seeds. The cheese is super frosty, at least compared to anything else I've grown. Ive only grown generic clones though. I also have another cheese plant I am keeping as a mom in my closet with an apollo led ufo. That cheese was started 11/3 from seed and is under 24 hours of light. I plan to buy rockwool soon to take clones and then I will put the mom to flower.

Having some issues with mama cheese. I watered on 1/7 with bottled ro 1/4 tsp cal-mag + 1/2 tbsp big bloom + 1/4 tsp grow big. Water phed to 6.5 run off 5.5. I was having problems with burning. On 1/12 I used plain bottled ro water. It's ph was 8. I didn't adjust and the run off was 6.5. Today it looks like this



It's time to water but not sure if I should just do plain water or maybe just FF big bloom today.
 
The new growth looks to be healthy, I'd start with nutes

I think this is the 2nd or 3rd watering with ph solution and the first time I only ph to 6.5. That's when I noticed my runoff ph was low. I'm not sure if the soil isn't buffering any more or if I'm just doing something wrong.

Mom cheese before pruning

Mom cheese after pruning and water. 1tbsp big bloom + 1/2 grow big

Clone supplies and clones

Afghan watered 1/2tsp tiger bloom + 1/4 tsp grow big + 1tbsp big bloom. Plain water was given 1/22

Cheese got the same nutes and plane water on 1/22. I think this one is about ready I'll do plain water from here out.

My plants are about two months into flower so I got some damp rid. Humidity went from 60% to 40% pretty quickly and it's staying there. Shit was cheap too.

I got tired of my noisy 6" duct booster for intake. I got two 8" elbows and two registers. Some fernice filter. It seems to work better. Temps went down by a degree or two I was able to turn down my big inline and unplug the duct booster but the side walls do suck in more and I can definitely tell there is less airflow... But it's working and working better then before so far.

The cheese I was keep as a mom was just put into flower as of today. I was going to transplant into a 7gal and veg for a few more weeks but decided to just flower. We will call this plant cheese #1. Cheese #2 has been in flower since 12/2/15 and is about ready to harvest. I will flush in about 4 or 5 days. The two Afghan where put to flower 12/24/15.

Cheese #2 harvest in 2-3 weeks

Harvested cheese #2 it could have gone a little longer but was in a rush for buds. Dry wait is 14 grams. Cheese #1 is doing ok and budding. Having some problems with both Afghan but the buds look and smell nice. All the clones I took rooted. One of them didn't have roots showing so I opened it up and saw small roots. I decided to toss it. So technically 90% success. I put 4 into 5 gal containers. I'm not sure why I didn't start them in smaller pots. I normally would start in 1 gal. It's ok I'll just give them small amounts of water and see what happens. 4 I put into 3 gal containers. I'll wait about a week longer and flip to 12/12. The rest of the clones are on top of hydroton and get low doses of Fox farm grow big, big bloom, and azos beneficial microbs. Pics to come

Clones from cheese #1
Potted 2/10. I'm trying the gas lantern routine for veg. Lights on at 1330 off at 0130 on at 0700 and off at 0800 as of today 2/18. Hope it works. Just want to save on the electric bill. Plants watered with ph water and Azos. 8tbsp per gal 2 cups of that to each plant. The clones that aren't potted got a small amount of Fox farms grow big. I hope I can keep them going until I have the space and money for a coco grow. The Afghans are still putting out hairs so at lights on I'll decide if I want to flush in a few days or feed.

Both Afghan flushed with tap water. One plant is still pushing out new hairs so if I need to give it more nutes I will. I'm not using Fox farms nute trio, as of yesterday I bought flora nova bloom. I totally forgot about cheese #1. No water. No love. Watered yesterday with 1tsp flora nova bloom 1 tsp cal mag. I might just cull that plant. I have 8 cheese clones in soil and another 4 i put into coco as of 2/21. I'm more focused on the clones. I'll start a new thread for the coco clones later. The 8 clones will go to flower as they become ready. Don't want monsters only have a 4x4 tent. The clones are doing great so far with the gas lamp routine. I have a few gnats in the closet but hope keeping things dry will fix that. I'll water those in a few days with azos.
