Verbalist’s dream, a Tangerine Dream!
~ Tangerine Dream auto by Barney’s Farm ~
Type: Sativa x IndicaTangerine Dream is a mostly sativa feminized cross between Nevilles Haze A5 and G-13. The THC level reaches 23%, and the CBD level is 1.8%.The plant has a modest size of 90-100 cm. It develops strong colas and side branches overflowing with large fat buds.
It is recommended to support branches in the last weeks of flowering. After about 65 days, a 500g/m2 crop will appear. Tangerine Dream from Barney's Farm grows equally well indoors and outdoors. In the Northern climate, the harvest will be by the end of October. The effect of Smoking is cerebral, long-lasting and ultimately relaxing. This is a fast and powerful hit! The smoke has a citrus taste and aroma.

Had one left over seed and wanted to test something interesting this time. So whats better than DIY dwc system for a micro growery!
I’ll be using mostly the 60x40cm cabinet and depending how big she gets I might move her to flower inside the tent.
First let’s get to the mini DWC setup:
- The bucket I’m using is 1 gallon ”berry bucket”.
- 8" Air stone tubed to BOYU’s 240L/h air pump
Hole for 4" net cup & and inserted hooks on the lid for easier LST.
Made the scale to check the water level. LOL bucket looks lil ugly, duct tape all over the place I’ll cover the edges with mylar film later when it arrives.
Rest of the setup/rig:
- Lighting: 45W Corn LED, 2x 100W LED panels, 250W HPS and probably Mars TS 1000 later in flower.
- 60x40x140cm Cabinet without air venting. Ive an exhaust drill on the door and I’ll be only using small clip fans to circulate air inside the cabinet. Prob opening the door that many times per day so the air wont stay too stagnant.
- Nutrient linear is still completely open. GHE bottles are almost empty and been thinking about @Remo Nutrients
Germination 12/31/2021 - 1/2/2022
Soaked and buffered Jiffy7 coco peat and hydroton in 6pH solution mixed with Hydroguard, Root booster and Seaweed/Kelp extract.
Only couple days later
And later she was transplanted into DWC net cup when cots opened.
First Main-Lining experiment! And before you say anything, yes I do know its an autoflower. But this microgrowery is more like an experimental test how well I manage to combine hydro growing and sucha aggressive pruning.
If everything goes smooth and I manage to keep her small enough to fit in 1.75x2 cabinet it could turn into a grow’n’show.
First Main-lining takes place as soon as 4th node has fully opened and 3rd set nodes are at least half an inch long.
I’m aiming for 8 potential colas, but will see how long she stays in veg.
As she gets bigger and starts to drink more like 1-3L per day, then Ive to consider moving her into 10L (2.5gallon) bucket. Hopefully we can keep it small, neat and simple!
Next up couple pics from the first two weeks:
