Recently new to the growing game and really new to the forums, ive learned a lot from reading and gathering information from other growers, and id like to say thanks to everyone who has taken the time to post there setups and what they do.

Critique me and give me some ideas/suggestions, you wont offend me if you say how horrible im doing or something like that, i can take it and i want it.

In this current batch of ladies i have: NYC Diesel|Blue DreamXBarberry Brute
(PLEASE KEEP IN MIND IM LAZY WHEN TYPING SO I MIGHT JUST SAY DIESEL, BLUE DREAM OR EVEN USE THERE ABBREVIATIONS SO READER BEWARE)
Medium is Vermifire soil, using General Hydroponics Flora Series Gro, Micro ,Bloom
Lights are DYI CFL, 12x48w bulbs. in the tent 2x Mars Hydro 300W. and i havea 800W Spectrum LED on its way (11/29)

NYC diesel in tent- has about a week left in flowering, stopped feeding it nutrients about 5 days ago. going to be water from here on out. Currently in a 10 Gallon fabric pot, This plant has had a rough life, started out slow in veg as a unhealthy clone and then inadequate growing conditions, but it pulled through and conditions improved, during transition to flowering this plant almost died due to heat and lack of water twice. Was out of town and not able to tend to soon enough as well as under watering and having others care for my plants temporarily. Sometimes got to learn lessons the hard ways right. It has been flowering for about 9-10 weeks now.


one of the times it died :(


After Dead Branches Removed


after Recovery and back on track



taken 3 days ago

Pretty sure the Damage on the leaves is light damage, i raised the LEDS about another 6 inches, seemed to slow it a little. since a week left im just gonna let it finish. dont have intentiions of growing in this tent any more, will be using this LEDS for the next batch of plants that will be grown in a open room


New filter just got hooked up, was starting to stink to much



The Next 5 are still in veg, These are under the CFL's currently, Some in 3 Gallon fabric pots, they will all eventually end up in a 10 gallon fabric pot. These are also getting General Hydroponics Flora Series Gro, Micro ,Bloom every other watering. These have one fan on them. i plan on eventually getting these all under LEDS once the NYCD in the tent is harvested. i also have a 800W spectrum LED on its way. eventually will get more, but budget cuts you know. also plan to have these all inclosed in some kind of room or structure by at least week 2-3 of flowering. probably start flowering the diesels in two weeks, might keep the blue dream in veg for a while so i can clone the shit out of it.


Barberry BrutexBlue Dream Week one after sprouting


4 NYCD Clones, from NYCD in tent


Barberry BrutexBlue Dream at Week 2-3?


4 Diesel Clones, attempting a labeling thing here


Pic of the first trough, 4 diesels and the Blue DreamxBarberry Brute (shitty pic) and also a mint plant cause why not


Better Pic of the 5 in the Trough, blue dream is hidden sorry


NYCD #4 in 10 gallon pot, this clone has always done better then the other ones, it was started in a hard container (plastic pint then a plastic 3 gallon) opposed to the fabirc containers the other 3 were started in interesting.


Happy Blue dream, and NYCD 4 on the right


Upgrade to a bigger trough, this is what i usually leave it like, also added handing tubular cfl in the back for additional light for the clones and seedlings and there is a fan oscillating where im standing.

love, appologies and water lol, there was a ventilation failure one of the times, so i addressed that.
didnt remove any dead leaves or branch until they were crunchy and pretty must just fell off, a lot of the branches a waited a good 7-10 days before i finally cut them off, i was suprised what came back green

all these were taken a day ago.


White Russian day 41 since sprout


Maui day 37 ish since sprout


NYCD clone, growing tall, not getting enough light.


Unfortunately some car troubles prevented me from getting here a day earlier, blue dream and NYCD #1 were not happy and pretty thirsty. They looked better within 15 minutes of watering


BBBD starting to hydrate and perk back up,


NYCD #4

What a night, didnt finish till 2am.
Harvested the NYCD in the tent
Moved the blue dream to a 5 gallon plastic contatiner, and NYCD #1 to a 10 gallon fabric pot
Removed CFL's and hung the New diamond 800w and the 2 300w mars hydro that were in the tent.
Got the BBBD tied up as well.


Last pic before cutting her down



upside down tomato cage for the win. Put into tent after lights were removed, tent is still hooked up to the can filter. Will be out of town till next friday so will cut them up and start curing then hopefully.




such a relief to be done with that plant, as well as being done with growing in the tent, should have a room setup before the next 5 go into flowering. And now i can use the two 300w that were in that tent.


Had this guy pop out as well. im told it is a white russian or a mystery lol.


Maui looking good.


some spots on the maui


White russian


NYCD#1



NYCD#3 some training


NYCD #2 Havent done much training



NYCD#4


found some of this on NYCD#4
i think the last feeding of nutrients may have been to strong, some leaves on all plants showing nutrient burn. Will be stepping down slightly on next feeding


this is just the 800w diamond, hung it solo to show what it looked like by itself


300w mars hydro left and right. 800w diamond in the middle. lights are at about 2.5'. will check on Sunday to see how plants are reacting to the lights.


with all 3 LEDS. Need to extend my panda film higher up, or build the damn room.


best feature on my trough

Why are the lights so high up? I don't have the same brand as you, but the brand I have recommends you keep it between 18" and 22" for the spectrum to mix.

Also how do you get those pictures to work that are taller than they are wide?? 420Magazine turned mine sideways when I tried to use pictures like that..

Nice buds btw!

No justified reason for that height, Just when they were hung and pictures taken was late at night and didn't have means of lowering them closer to the plants, as well as it not being a permanent hang location. Raised the trough another 4-6 inches closer to the lights yesterday. Plants are loving the lights combined with the stress training.

I don't do anything special when uploading pictures, so I'm not sure why yours come out sideways. Using an iPhone to take pics?

And thank you, dried for about 6 days, and has cured for about 7, smokes real smooth now, good 'cbd high' turned out more indica dominant due to length of flowering.

Re: NYC Diesel - Barberry Brute X Blue Dream - White Russian - Maui - Soil - LED & CF

been pretty busy, made the bigger trough into a miniature grow shed, and it is now filtered. pulled out the blue dream, and put in another NYC diesel. plants have been transitioned to 12/12 over a week period, as well as the nutrient mixture. The enclosure can only hold 4 plants at the size that they are currently grown to. Will be training plants better and flowering sooner to allow 6 plants to be flowered in this enclosure at a time. This will be probably temp flowering Enclosure for the next 4-6 months maybe... who knows.




Temp ranges from 75-82 in the enclosure, depending when lights are on. increased humidity around the plants by about 10%, need to invest into humidifier, or start spraying water on regular basis.


added fan to move air around in enclosure. aint nobody got time for hot spots.


this BBBD clone has rooted and is now in soil. this picture was 9-10 days after being planted into dirt


white russian doing good, doing some stress training.


This NYC diesel is the one i put into enclosure for flowering. plant is probably an additional 4-6 inches taller at this time. 6 top colas. should be extremely adorable, interested in the yield from a smaller plant.


Still need to

get temporary enclosure setup for vegging (currently just open, want to control environment)
CO2 Equipment
More fans!!!!
more cfls or swap CFLS out for LEDS for the veg side of things, better lighting
increase humidity
Seal Large enclosure better ( currently has negative pressure, but i want more before putting Ventilation on timer)
Experiment with Additional Flowering and vegging nutrients
Switch nutrients to something not owned by Monsanto (General Hydropnics)
Switch back to hydro(drip feed or dwc again)
Try out some alternative soil mixtures
Faster Root development
Irrigation solution for both troughs
Remote monitoring
Remote Controls
Update diary more frequently
Better pictures

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.
