So, I'm experimenting with Sea of Green (SOG) in a 4x4 tent using double big gulps (DBG) as pots under 700w of LED. Usually I'm a SCROG and HPS kinda guy but it's time to experiment
To start, DBGs can hold 1.89 litres of soil/medium, damn close to a #3 pot. My thought process in this is that the roots will have more room to grow down rather than out and being much skinner pots I can comfortably stack 60 in a 4x4 tent. That being said, I drilled about 10-12 holes in the bottom of the DBGs along with about 2-3 inches of hydro clay balls at the bottom of each cup to assist with drainage. filled the rest of the cup with Down To Earth (DTE) grow medium (about 1.5 litres after clay balls) mixed with a healthy dose of DTE Granular Root Zone Mycorrhizal Fungi.
Got the genetics from Grumpy Gardens, Northern Berry is a cross between Northern Lights #5 x DJ Short Blueberry. She flowers for 60ish days. Suppose to be large single colas(info from Grumpy Gardens and Leafly)
About 85% of the clones have vibrant/healthy root structure, the other 15% or so weren't bad, just noticeably less vibrant than majority of others.
Transplanted 60 from solo cups to DBG, checked 10 HRS later and all were reaching for the sun lookin happy as can be.
Ill be brewing up the girls first round of tea tonight and will update with pictures after first feeding.
