Sour Diesel #8 Indoor, 2x600W - Soil - FF Nutes

OK, I am already well into this grow, but its going to be kinda perpetual so might as well go ahead and start a journal.

I am growing sour diesel #8's from clones I got from a friend. I built my own grow room with the 2 600w hps on one side and my veg chambers on the other, small footprint of 8'x7' with a 7.5' ceiling.

I am using Fox Farms ocean forest and ProMix BX soil(less) with about 25-30% volcanic cinder (mahalo Pele!) mixed, and I always add in 1 Tbs dolemite lime and 1 Tbs green sand amendment per 5 gal soil/cinder.

I finished my first batch of 6 SD's about a month and a half ago and I fricken love this strain! I got 1.5 oz per plant average (total of 9 oz) dried and perfect nugs from that run. Hoping to get them up to 2 oz per on this current batch of 6, which are about 2.5 weeks from harvest. I have another batch of 8 that were put into flower just over a week ago. Also some clones getting ready to go in when the 600w opens back up. So its kinda busy in my little room.

More grow space details...like I said, a 8x7 room (2x4 and ply framing), its air is exchanged every 5 min with a pair of 424cfm 6" fans with carbon filters on intake and exhaust. I have two 5000 btu air conditioners keeping things cool, one is on lowest setting and stays on 24 hrs, the other runs at med/high and shuts on and off with the 600w's. This keeps my "daylight" temps at about 76 and "night" at about 68 without having to have any fancy controllers, and the AC's cost just $115 each, so this was THE cheapest way to go that I could find.

I have a 4' veg chamber with 4' T-5 HO and a 2' chamber with 2' T-5 HO to keep my moms and clones.

Oh, and nutes...using the Fox Farm trio right now, dosages straight from the label. I hope to start adding in their dry nutes in on one of the next batches, but haven't been able to afford them yet.

In just a bit I'll get some pics up, meantime pakaloha!!

The taste on it is absolutely one of the best I've ever had, its like a sour/lemony candy. I flushed about 1 week prior to harvest, and cut them about 30min before lights on (end of aphotic period). 5 day on stem/branch dry + 2 day off branch in paper bag, then 30 days in glass burping once a day.....:tokin: oh my frickin god!! Bongs (with ice) about as smooth as a vapo, and kicks your ass without bringing you down...tingly frosty numbies not just in the head but all the way down into the arms/fingers with a really good hit.
Hope ya'll enjoy and tune in cause its just gonna get better, and the next couple chapters are gonna be pretty cool too I hope (teaser....p.nurple is one of them).

Here's the keiki zone (keiki are babies/little ones in Hawaiian, and what we all call non-flowering plants). these are all clones in 4" pots-
10_19_4_001.jpg


Here you can see the stacked keiki chambers, 4' on bottom and 2' on top...also can see the air intake box (center-has carbon filter inside) with fan above, and the ballast to one of the 600w for the flower (lehua) room barely visible on the right-
10_19_4_002.jpg


each of the keiki chambers closes up, plus there are hanging reflectors/dividers isolating the lehua room while still allowing ventilation between the two halves of the whole enclosed space. keiki chambers have both active and passive air exchange involved in the whole scene.

Mahalos brother!
As far as indoor, I started in Jan of this year, this is my forth batch, but the first two where less than ideal. 3rd is pictured above, so I guess I kinda got it down by the 3rd.
I'll be harvesting in a little over two weeks and would be happy to go over my steps then, or if you have any questions let me know.
Thanks for checkin this grow out, very stoked to have you on board!
:peace2:

Just a quick update. All is well in my little paradise. Transplanted the next group of sour d clones from their 4" pots to 1/2 gal pots and moved them under the better light. All but one of these have been topped at about 5/6th node to get them bushier than the last batches.

here's the younger batch in flower (day 13 for them) just starting to form their first budlets-

and a couple real bud porn pics on the older batch (6 weeks today, 2 more to go)-

Well I guess I couldn't help but take a few more shots of the girls, they are SO pretty.

10_23_1_004.jpg


two of the six had these trippy buds pop up out of the tops of a few branches, I cut almost all cause I wasn't sure about them, but left this one to see what it would do. It started off with no leaves, just a puff ball of white hairs on a weird stem, but now its got leaves and looks pretty cool I think-

10_23_1_002.jpg


And finally a shot of one of the girls on the watering stand-

10_23_1_003.jpg


today the older girls got their micros (4 tbs/gal FF Big Bloom) and blackstrap molasses (1 tbs/gal) so they are all pretty happy, and its 4:08 so I am gonna be real happy in about 12 minutes!!
