New Member
Hello 420 Magazine followers, this will be my first serious grow and journal I have ever posted. I put a lot of my time and effort to try to get the best out of everything.

What strain is it? Bag seeds that are apparently Lemon Haze X9, Blue Cheese X5, Lemon Kush X3, random X1, Barney's Farm Feminized Blue Mystic X1 and Nirvana Feminized Maui Waui clones X7
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? All three
Indoor or outdoor? Indoor
Photoperiod times? 18/6 from seed. 18/6 to 12/12 in one week when I begin to flower. Week 1 12/12, week 2 11.5/12.5, week 3 11/13, week 4 10.5/13.5, week 5 10/14.
Vegetative time? This detail will be provided next to plants in the pictures
Space used? I have 3 tents which are MarsHydro 4x4 X2 and Darkstreet 90 3x3. Currently use 4x8 total.
Soil or Hydro? Hydroponics non recirculating DWC 5 gallon buckets with hydroton as support and 6" netpots
Type of water? Tap water at 150ppm
Air pumps? Hydrofarm AAPA15L 6-Watt 15-LPM 4 Outlets X4, currently using 3.
Lights used? All the equipments I have are MarsII 1200W 560w draw, Mars Reflector-192x5w 420w draw, Mars Reflector-144x5w 315w draw x2, G8LED-240W 150w draw, Mars300 Old model 130w draw, Chinese UFO 110w draw X2, T5HO 24inches 24w X4. I add lights as plants get bigger and take more space (40 to 60w per feet square)
Temp of Room/cab? 70F cold weathers, 80F+ hot weathers
Reservoir temps? Between 68F and 75-80F. Had it running at 77F for some time without any issues.
Fans, intake and exhaust? All my 3 tents are in one big room that has windows, Honeywell TurboForce 6" Fan HT-900 X2 intake from the windows and an oscillating 15" fan in the middle of the room. The room has a small cutout on the wall to the floor for air ventilation (used for exhaust). The room's door will be opened sometimes with a 20" exhaust fan when it gets hot (like above 80F)
RH of Room/cab? Depends on weather, 30%-55% RH
PH of reservoir? 5.7-5.8
How often do you top off? When the water level is below the 6" net pot. Every 1-3 days for large plants.
Do you change your reservoir? No, unless the reservoir looks dirty, cannot see crystal clear water and has many heterogeneous little particles, easily distinguishable in water with bare eyes
Fertilizers used? General Hydroponics MaxiGro for vegetative and MaxiBloom for flowering. PH Down 12.5% phosphoric acid. Baking Soda for PH Up. Epsom Salt if needed. I don't use HydroGuard or any additives to combat root fungus or problems.
PPM levels? Seedlings, Early Sprouts 100 to 250
Early Vegging 300 to 400
Full Vegetation 450 to 700
Early Blooming 750 to 950
Full Mature Blooms 1000 to 1600
Training techniques? LST using twist ties holding weights, pinching tops and not sure if to defoliate or not

I may or may not add much descriptions. Pictures will already have some details in them. Feel free to comment, help or critique my work! Hope you guys enjoy my ever first real grow!

What a beautiful grow journal lol, I'm enjoying some OG cookies and checking out your elaborate photos. Keep them coming! My buddy came and defoliated my plants. One person was like wth, and another told me it's what your supposed to do. It made my plants bushier. Your plants look plenty bushy so I'd do some research and listen to the pro's. Great work so far!

I defoliated heavily today. I'm convinced that it's the best way to have a good yield because you want light reach all the way to the bottom of the plants. It will also make the stems of each shoot thicker and stronger. Big fat compact colas is what I want!

Hope all is well in your world.

Is this grow still alive?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

If you need any help with posting photos, please read our Photo Gallery Tutorial.

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.

Sending you lots of love and positive energy.
