Good day and welcome to my first grow journal of 2020.
I’ll start off by saying I’ve been out of the grow game for a few years & I say “grow game” loosley as I’ve only ever messed around here and there and never really grew any type of “weight”. Lol I’ve learned a lot of things along the way ,but with that being said I still have a lot to learn and am always eager to do so, so don’t hesitate to chime in! I’ve recently purchased some new equipment and am going to try to start a perpetual grow hopefully harvesting at least 1lb dry per harvest every 2-3 months if possible.

Alright let’s get to the important stuff...

STRAIN: Dr. Seeds-Gorilla Alien (Alien Technologies X Gorilla Glue #4)
Dr. Seeds-Indie (Chronic X Black Domina)

GROW MEDIUM: Pro-Mix HP
Fox Farm Happy Frog
Perlite

POT SIZE: 5 Gallon x 4

NUTRIENTS: Green Planet Nutrients Starter kit


GROW SPACE: 48x48x70 grow tent (Veg/Flower
12x48x35 (x 2) seedlings/clones

LIGHTING: Mars TS3000 (Veg/Flower)
6 x 100w CFL (seedlings/clones)

GROW TYPE: SCROG

Additional Equip: 12”Oscillating Fan
6” clip fan
Vick’s Vaposteam Humidifier

ENVIROMENT: (set up & test)
80-82 degrees
35-40% RH

Right off the hop I’d say I’m going to have to do something about that temperature and humidity but I think that should have most of my basis covered. lol I look forward to hearing from you all and seeing what this light can do, Happy Growing!!

Picked this up today to hopefully get a better handle on my temps and humidity before moving anything into the tent.

was previously just using a Vick’s Vaposteam. Was thinking maybe the warm mist could have been contributing to my heat problem?

this one is cool mist and is programmable up to 65%

Just a quick update on the girls, I really slowed down 1 Indie during transplant but she’s finally starting to come back. Other than that I’m thinking they’re looking pretty healthy to me.

Thinking I should top them in another week or so?

Been just watering with tap water that’s been left out for 24 hrs and pH’d to 6.8.

Nice start. I'll follow along. I have some Dr seeds strains going at the moment and am curious to see how yours turns out. I have gorrila glue and chem dawg 5 weeks into flower and power plant and C99 X Blueberry in the veg tent. So far I've had 100% germination across the four strains that's pretty impressive to me. I hope they turn out to be good genetics as I have purchased 10 different strains from them already. I don't have a journal going because of the lack of free time. I have been growing perpetual for the last couple of years and harvesting close to a pound every 10 weeks so yeah your goal is very doable.

Nice, thx for your input! I had bought 5 strains from Dr Seeds ,1 being the Auto Lowryder which none of the seeds germinated. The plan was to grow the Lowryder while vegging my photos but that didn’t pan out. Since then I have cracked Indie, Gorilla Alien & LSD with 100% germination

Nice. I was interested in both the gorrila alien and lsd. Hell I was interested in all of them. Lol.
I thought I would share some pics of my current grow.

Very nice selection of seeds! I think I’m going to try their do-is-dos & 24k down the road sometime, next one I have on hand to try after this grow is their Jackie Girl (Jack Herer x GSC) it seems like it should be a tasty cross lol

Is that a 4x4 tent?

The flower tent is 5x5 and the veg tent is 4x4. Are you growing the lsd now. I prefer indicas but the wife likes sativas. That lsd sounds wild.
I started 1 LSD but I think I might just veg it out for a mother plant, cut some clones for an all LSD grow next, and have them vegging while this grow is flowering...in a perfect world, but we’ll see how it goes lol

How are the plants doing.
Going to burn one now and go take some updated pics... I’m thinking I’ll do photos every Sunday, I work throughout the week so I don’t get much time to do anything other than regular maintenance until the weekend. But I’ve done some topping and defoliating this week so stay tuned, I look forward to your input !!

I was thinking about buying that mars ts3000 is it a good light? Love the pics of the little girls. I'm wait on seeds to start me some new baby's GSC.
This is my first grow with it but I’m very happy with it, I’m still early in my grow but I’ll upload some side by side pics to give you an idea of what it is doing for me so far.
I really like that I can take the drivers Off and mount them outside the tent to help keep temps down..oh and it’s bright as f**k! Lol

I would adjust your pH.. at 6.8 pH you are at the upper end of the 6.2-6.8 range used in soil, and it drifts upwards from there. Try instead adjusting all of your incoming fluids to 6.3pH... I think this is the cause of all of your deficiencies.

My first question would be did you mix the two together or did you use FFHF for the seedlings and they are now in Promix?

Been just watering with tap water that’s been left out for 24 hrs and pH’d to 6.8.
I wouldn't pH the water that high. Typically Promix is buffered at 5.6 so you need to bring that number down a bit.
