Grow Journal of the Month: May 2019
Hi this is my first journal. I grew a few crops in tents now I would like more room. I need to poly and set up my room. So here's what I have going on.

Pots -3.5g
Medium - promix hp
Nutz - quickgrow part 123 and royal bloom 0-1-0
Strain - Raspberry Kush
Not air cooled
Temp - 27 day - 18 night (I grow in winter use the outside room at 15c to cool grow area)
Lights - Advanced LED Diamond series 650XML, Ex-oil diamond series and a KIND 750 on a 3ft light mover. I'm waiting for my 900 arc series light from advanced to show up. I tried to order the Sun Plus COBS recommended on my first post but their not available right now. I am noticing the 650 XML is bending plants from the kind to it.

WW auto
RH - 22% (I only have 5 plts when I get all 20 growing I expect this to increase) there is a humidifier running daily.
13 clones Raspberry Kush (raz) in rock wool just cut 1 day old in dome 2 of the clones are the tops of the 6 week old lady's.
2 Raz approx 6 weeks from seed in veg getting tall topped yesterday
2 Lemon Juice Express(LJE), 1 Fruit (F) and 2 White Widow (WW) autos 1 week from seed
1 WW auto 5 weeks from seed just started flowering.

1. I would like help to set up grow room to take CO2. I had great results with the one crop I ran CO2 through in a tent.
2. I have a water cooler and did not have great success with my RDWC system maybe some advise or suggestions for help with that. I was looking to make watering a non bending over with buckets process.

3. At this stage of trying to do better with potency, yield and reduced the workload of watering.

If naming my pics didn't work
First two are the clones
Third pic is the old girls ready for flower
Fourth and fifth are my grow room
6 is an auto WW

Ok day 4 I put a drop of bloom nutz into the clone water. I read somewhere that helped. The first two days the water at the bottom of the tray was full since last night the water is emptying the dome ribs every few hours. I hope that means their rooting! Time will tell. The Raz clones are not as perky as the past few days but still look living. I for some reason have a hard time with Kush clones.

I put up the panda poly in my grow room. I will put the Mylar up once I know where. Anyone have suggestions for how to have a table set up so I'm not on the ground all the time?

Day 5 Nov 16, 2017
Today I super cropped and LST. My new sun plus arrives tomorrow so I will be able to start flower on these two soon trying to keep them down! This may be the only time I've ever had the opportunity in the future to LST to the middle. All the stems are off to the sides. There's only about 8-10 tops after the topping and taking 6-7 clones off each. I have to now put up poly to split a grow and veg area. I ordered an irrigation system for when all 20 go to flower.
420-magazine-mobile1947507752.jpg


I lowered my day temp to 24c. RH is from 24-17%.

I see the beauty of the Ras strain. It just likes being bushy and is very aggressive. Without any fim it had 16 tips all close to same height with a massive stalk. I love growing and seeing differences in strains.

I tried to put better lights for photos but I still have work to do there. Thanks for the patience.

Day 6 I believe my clones are starving to death. I pulled one out of rockwool cube and found the cut area turning brown/black with no roots. I made a new cut at more of an angle through where leafs intersect and jammed it back into rockwool. I sprinkled rooting hormone on everything. (Plant prod STM-root #1). I put the other half in a glass of water.
420-magazine-mobile377008223.jpg

I subscribed to the thread tips for hard to clone plants page to prepare for next time.
One clone is wilting over so I propped it up.
420-magazine-mobile439151632.jpg

Sigh this strain is hard to clone.
420-magazine-mobile1370067777.jpg


It's possible that due to cloning a different strain before, that would root in 2-3 days, I'm a little too critical. I will take these to the end and try my best. In a few more days I'll pull another out if I don't see progress and post photos and ask for help.

Day 8 I installed my new perfect sun COB. Whoa bright! The shipping was incredibly fast!!!
Today I mounted a fresh air intake 6in fan. My temps were climbing to 31c this lowered it to 28c. I lowered my garage heat to see if this will work or if I need a larger or second exhaust. My rooms 7'x7'x8'. I'm still struggling with humidity but less than half the plants are in the room so I still need to fill it to see. It was water day and down to 15rh. With that airflow through the room, and my winter Rh looks like air will be my only solution.
I want to flower the two old girls I moved them under the COB and I'm following the website instructions.

autos coming along.

Also, my ARC from advanced led is in. I'll mount in a day or two.

The clones have no roots but are still perky and taking water. Some leaves are turning yellow, I'll try read up more if I should put grow nutz in or perhaps my silly move of sprinkling growth hormone in the clone tray or putting a drop of bloom nutz in the clone water burnt them. That's the problem when you do too many changes too close together. Lesson learned.

Day 11
I tried to check the clones if the were rotting or growing roots. All except the two tops are not letting me pull them out of the rockwool, so I think they are starting the root growth. I bough a tray and raised the grow area so I'm not always bending over. This tray can be used as an ebb and flow system in the future.
Clones looking good! I think. Just keeping them wet and kinda dry. Maybe the two I topped were so big they can live longer without pushing for roots.
Anyway, small win for myself as I've never had cuttings live this long with no roots. I must be paying more attention to them, or the help I had cutting them was a good luck charm. :)

Hey bruh. Greetings from Alberta. Nice to see more ppl close by up on here. You're set up for great success. Great lighting choices. I'll stick around and see how u rock this grow.

Thanks Swag! I can use some hints here and there. I've only had good yields when I used CO2,
Thank you for the kind words. Looking forward to the day I get the rest of these clones in dirt! I'll checkout your posts for some tips also!

Day 15 today we LST'ed some more branches on the Raz. Two days ago I FIM'ed all the sites and I can see there's two new shoots at most if not all of them. Tomorrow I will lower the sun plus COB to 20in then in a day or two flip to 12/12! I'm excited.

I planned to be close with having these clones rooted and two weeks old, however no roots have sprung yet. I said Kush was difficult for me but now I think it's such an amazing strong plant it almost doesn't need roots!! They are still green and healthy. Two days ago I snipped the leaves off to try force roots out.

420-magazine-mobile1939310555.jpg


I read through my last clone notes and noticed I didn't put a light on them. Not sure if that helped force roots out or not but near the end of 7 days there's going to be a timer added to give some night time to them.
My room today got some work too. I put mylar all around the girls and formed a latch to hold it in place. I put more fans in to move some air around and put some water that once it warms add yeast and get a bit of co2 in the room. There a fan under the plants to pump air off the floor up, there's a fan by the intake cool air hose to move that air around then there's another to make sure the whole grow area is moving air.
Temp - 26 day 17 night
Rh - 20-31

Now that the timeline is pushed out due to these clippings taking so long to root, I have to make a veg and flower area. My watering system didn't work with my initial design so I'm going to change it so once the pump lifts the water it's all down hill to the plants.

Wishing you luck bro. Setup looks good; I'm rooting for your clones to be stunning before long!

Day 21 5 Clones are potted one was limp after transplant I propped it up with a pipe cleaner. Hooked up auto watering system still need a timer for this system.

The WW I have in flower is looking good. I took a few pictures of some leaves to see if I need to worry.
The lady is day 50 of a 65 day auto. I think I'm going to wait just a bit to flush as there are hardly any orange hairs yet.
Temps 26d 17n
Rh 20-38 on water day(going up as plants get larger)
Nutz quick grow 5ml/l pt 3 bloom 5ml/l part two.
It's on 18/4 lights
The yellowing blotches I think are from when I water and splash some drops because they look like drops.
420-magazine-mobile1555691497.jpg

The brown rust isn't much but it's there I am not too sure.

Here's my irrigation set up. It's coming along!! Just need to adjust the flow rate. I used a 750g/hr mag submersed pump to a manifold and hooked one pipe to return to the source water so I didn't build too much pressure when I dial the flow to work.

Header with one return hose and the adjustable 8 hose thing.
420-magazine-mobile1618934543.jpg


Barrel and a valve if I want to pump all the water out. Also another valve to regulate flow back to barrel if required.

Day 23 9/13 Clones in dirt!
1g pots
I've yet to see roots grow up however I did sprinkle growth hormone on the rockwool a couple of weeks ago. I have more respect for that hormone now!!! A couple are still weak but things are getting good. I just powered on the self watering system and loved it. I only had to hand water nutz. One more clone will get planted today so I hope to start the 2+week veg soon! I want to keep these short this run. I've not tried that yet and my pots are really small. 1g

I agree, nice success on the roots....
You know what's too funny. My wife was expecting a delivery of boots today from some online shopping she's been doing......well it so happens that I've also been waiting for my cloner to show up. When I saw the Amazon wrapping on the dining room table I ripped into it like a kid on Xmas morning.......then the delay.....then the disappointment.......then the......oh shit, this isn't my stuff......lmao. Oh well, she'd already seen them lol.

Ha I had to stop being OCD as I'm not as kind and end up maybe getting my way but def having the other person now want to communicate further...i was in discussion and was told they would make it worth my while so either way a gift is coming! So I'm thrilled!
