    Re: Chump's First

    Thanks gang! I tried to get a pic, but my battery is dead on the camera. So I have my grinder and my pipe here to keep me occupied while the battery charges. It's so awesome to have so much good bud! I'm hooked on growing.


    Nothing really to see, just a little baby girl. Hopefully the other 2 pop! I'll be bummed if one or 2 beans dont sprout. I only have 3, and it took 2 weeks for them to come, so if I have to order some more, they'll be way behind. If only one sprouts, then I'll change my strategy. Maybe use the biggest potter we have, throw all my lights on it, and give it a longer veg time to maximize the size and yeild. I also got some 100w eq. CFLs to go with the floods. I didn't see the kelvin ratings on them, but they are 1600 lumins. Whatever that means.

    Re: Chump's First

    Is it common for 1 out of 3 beans to pop first? Given 3 seeds with almost the exact same environment, planted the same, watered the same, does it sound normal for 1 to pop first?

    "Kelvin is a unit increment of temperature and is one of the seven SI base units. The Kelvin scale is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale where absolute zero, the theoretical absence of all thermal energy, is zero kelvin (0 K)." Whereas Lumens is a measurement of light intensity, ie the brightness or candle power (candelas) of the light. That ends todays physics lesson...lol. 6500K bulbs are in the blue spectrum(bright white bulbs) and 2700K are in the red spectrum(soft white bulbs). The blue spectrum is better for vegging and the red spectrum is better for flowering. Hope that helps in someway.

    Re: Chump's First

    Thanks for the info. Maybe someday I'll know what you're talking about. I just hope I can grow with the bulbs I have, and not have to start over, I thought I picked up the right ones. They were basiclly the biggest and brightest bulbs that Home Depot had in CFLs. 6 floods, and 3 regular with room for 1 more.

    Re: Chump's First

    Well this is a journal, so I'm posting my list of strains that I might use for growing outside next summer. I need to post this, because I'm going to clear my shopping cart, and choose some more strains for a 2nd indoor when this one finishes.

    Next years outdoor strain candidates

    • Green House - The Church
    • Sensi - Early Skunk
    • Barney's Farm - Blue Cheese
    • Green House - Great White Shark
    • Delicious - Northern Light Blue
    • Lowlife - Automatic Blueberry
    • Joint Doctor - Lowryder #2 x AK47
    • Sweet - Big Devil Automatic

    I need to break it down to 2 automatics, and 6 early finishing feminized plants. All of the strains listed finish early, or autoflower. And they're all feminized seeds. I just need 1 more early finisher, and help me narrow down the automatics. Any advice?

    Yep, very normal.

    Some are overachievers, lol.

    The roadrunner autoflower fem looked really interesting - check out Southernweeds last grow. 60 days planted to harvested

    The red devil is a 60 day variety as well I believe but I've never seen it grown

    The auto blueberry is supposedly very tasty but a low yielder - so something to consider depending on what you're priorities are

    The Diesel has popped! Alright! Thanks for the strain suggestion Soniq420.

    Does anyone think I should start this grow in a new journal? Just so it doesn't get too deep in pages and stuff?

    Love the Blueberry auto's, had 3 of them with varying yields, smallest was nearly 2 ozs dried. The AK47 and the AK47 x HinduKush was also excellant.

    Glad ya got another batch startin!! Your light will do just fine, besides, you can tweek them as you go along. As far as starting another Journal, tis your choice, but in my opinion, it makes it easier to follow.

    I think I will start a new journal, just to make it easier to navagate. So moderator, next time you're here, can you move this to completed journals? Thanks, and I'll post a link to the new journal in this journal when it's up and running.

    Thanks again guys! Keep the strain suggestions comming!

    Re: Chump's First

    We've moved your journal to our completed archives per your request Ms. chump stain

    I have enjoyed watching your first grow, even the part with the big shears for the males, which usually makes me squeamish

    We're looking forward to following your next effort, please post a link here for all the people following you and we'll stop back and add it to your signature for you.

    Much peace and respect to you from 420 Magazine
