Hello Everyone and Welcome to my 3rd grow.
My first grow taught me just how little I knew about growing. My second grow was in my eyes a very good one and I learned to grow better. This 3rd one is a continuing effort to learn to more about my favorite hobby, growing mmj.
Hopefully all of us can pick up some helpful ways to do things better. Please, all of you tuned into this grow I hope you pick up some useful info and If you spot me doing something totally wrong will you please chime in and tell me what I am doing wrong and tell me what I should be doing to make things better.
Now let us get into the nuts and bolts.
A little side note here. Here in Hawaii the mmj laws are not the same for all islands, each one has different rules. I live on Oahu and can have a total of 6 plants. 4 real giants, say from 8 to 12 foot tall and 2 smaller ones up to say 5 or 6 foot tall. There has been no word about clones or new spouts, so that part is hazy at best. Determining sex is not mentioned at all, so I am probably pushing things a bit.
At the moment I have 6 plants germ'd. All of my seeds are female. A White Widow is in 12/12 right now, She is a left over from my second grow and hasn't finished yet. A very disappointing plant. She is more like a Bonsai plant. More on her later.
I should be telling you all the following Information according to 420's Forum guidelines.
Is it Indicia?, Sativa? Actually they are hybrids , What SeedBank?
1 Super Silver Haze , Sativa, Greenhouse
1 Super Lemon Haze, Sativa , Greenhouse
1 Columbian Gold , Sativa Brazilian and South Indian, World of Seeds
1 Moby Dick , Sativa , DinaFem
1 White Widow, Indica , KC Brains
1 The Church , Sativa , Greenhouse
Is it in Veg or Flower stage? All are in veg at the moment, except the White Widow which is in Bloom.
Indoor or outdoor? All were started indoors and have been put outdoors at times. I put them all out in the sun for 12 hours and then put them in my grow boxes for 6 more hours. I then put them in the dark for 6 hours. So they are actually getting 18 hours of light and 6 hours of dark for a true 18/6.
In the end they will all be outdoors when they are in Bloom. :439:
Soil or Hydro?, This will be a soil grow
I will be using only Fox Farm Ocean Forest soil and Fox Farm Happy Frog if needed.
What size pot? All are in 6" plastic pots except the White Widow which is in a 3.7 gallon AirPot.
All plants will be in 3.7 gallon AirPots while in Bloom, The AirPots will be described in detail a bit later.
My two grow boxes will be described a little later on, with size, lights.
PH of media? I will try to keep the pH level between 6 and 6.3 measured by runoff. Unless someone tells me different.
Any Pests ? Only some strange small invisible worm that make marks on the leaves, but do not hurt the plants. I use Neem spray when needed. I also spray where they rest with NeeM with every watering as a precaution.
How often are you watering? When the pots feel dry.
Type of nutes used?
The complete Line of Botanicare for soil Including:
Pure Blend Pro Bloom
Other Nutes and additions:
This concludes part 1 of my Introduction to this grow. I will post part 2 as soon as I get it ready. It will cover AirPots.
