Hello, Its that time again.

Grow area, 4 1/2x 4 1/2 DIY tent.
Soil, FFO,H Frog,Warrior mixed even
Water, Five stage R/O system P/H 7.0
Style of grow... Scrog baby..
Plants age, Six months in counting.
Pot, Smart pot 7 gallon.
Light's, Znet4 and Spider. Might be changed soon.
Strain, ICE Bomb
Info on Ice bomb. The strain is full of flavour and a heavy coating of ice white crystals. It is a three way hybrid of Vanilla Kush, White Rhino and our original Bomb #1, making it extremely potent and one of the most exciting new genetic crosses available.

The finished buds are incredibly resinous and are covered in a thick bed of ice white crystals full of THC. When cured they have an intense flavour and smell that is an appealing blend of chocolate with hints of vanilla. Ice Bomb is indica dominant, staying quite short but also extending outwards to form a fantastic bushy plant that will tend to produce a large single kola, whilst still producing heavy yielding side branches. During flowering the buds and leaves can develop a purple sheen making it particularly attractive. Ice Bomb is very consistent and hardy and it will grow well even in difficult or less favourable conditions.

This strain is ideal indoor & out and will thrive in SOG and SCROG systems. Indoors the plant is a good producer with yields up to 500g/m2. THC and CBD are both very high (THC +20%) making it ideal for medical use with relaxation in mind.

Plant Height: Medium (90-140cm)
Indoor Flowering: 7-9 Weeks
THC: High (17-22%)
Harvest Outdoor: Sep-Oct
Yield: High (500-600g/m²)
Stoned/High: Relaxing Indica Stone

Here is Miss Ice under her scrog.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you all here threw the grow.

Outstanding my friend. Always nice to see you stopping by.
I get what you're doing, (not saying I can do it yet) but what I need to understand if it works with my set-up. I'm wondering if I'm ready for a full scrog like you do, or maybe I'll just start with some type of hybrid with the milk crates holding my 5G smart pots. From what I understand, and correct me if I'm wrong but you basically lock in the plant with a 'true' scrog. And, I'm wondering if having the ability to rotate the plant(s) and/or get some light and air all around is the best, for me -- right now. I can see myself doing something like you do but I think I would want to veg for four months or so, and while there are benefits, there are drawbacks. But, being able to see what you're doing is priceless to my development as a grower.

Hello my friend. Sorry some how I missed this post. When under the net and plant grows in you can not move it. The net is now supporting the plant. If doing a one net scrog then that is just support plant and let you grow her out as far as the net go's. The double scrog is used for that and the top net is to support the cola's. The top net is where you want no more then half of the cola growing threw. when the buds get heavy they have something to help hold them up so you do not have to use a ton of yoyo's. It is important to keep all cola's standing straight up and not leaning over. No different then a outside grow when vegging a long time is just letting the plant age like it does in the outdoor life. The only real draw back would be if using soil with nutes in it, over time they will be gone so making the grow a little harder if you are not use to adding nutes that are needed. When planing a good scrog you need to look at everything the plant or plants are going to need and get that in place. Like fans to move around air,Lights, How the intake and exhaust is going to be setup. Everything should be done before plants go in. Really with any grow the more you plan the less problems in the long run. The fun for me is trying. Some things work for me and some don't. We all have our own style and prefer things a little different.

The D.I.Y tent is in its finale months of flower. So far it is out growing all the other plants in flower. I am waiting on the Mars 700 to add to the other two lights in the tent. Right now she is growing with only 300 true watts. The bud development is outstanding and just putting on weight every day. The resin growth is outstanding but expected with the strain. I will try and get some true color pic tonight and get some close up pic to post.
