    Re: setting sun's second lowryder grow

    Thanks for the encouragement Weedryder and Droxster!


    I'll update the journal on Wednesday when my plants will be at nine weeks.

    I'm in no rush to harvest as I have some meds to get me by until they are ready.

    The only rush I have is that I'm anxious to start another grow. I have some Top 44 seeds that I'm thinking of growing next.

    regards,

    setting sun

    Cool. So how is the BHO? The potency of that will answer the recurring question of whether males have any value.

    The fact of LowRyders not autoflowering seems to very common lately. Never should a seed be sold for a supposed autoflowering plant if that trait is lost. Sounds like the breeders need to do sample testing to assure people are getting what they want, or loose credibility.

    It probably depends somewhat on the strain, but the BHO I've made from lowryder males is quite good. Expands like nobody's business and after 2-3 hits I'm done. The potency of lowryder males is quite decent. I've been smoking some really good Jack Herer, G13, trainwreck, and bubba kush from the dispensary I usually go to, so I have a pretty good frame of reference.


    Yeah, sounds like there are a lot of unstable seeds being sold. I ordered some LR2 seeds from a different seed bank to try as part of my next grow because I was curious about the autoflowering thing and didn't get to see it through two grows now.

    here's some pics of the potting soil that grew the healthiest and biggest plants. I'm going to use it in all my pots on the next grow. It doesn't need the addition of perlite because it has little chunks of lava rock in addition to lots of other good stuff.

    Re: setting sun's second lowryder grow

    My ladies are at week 9 since sprouting now.

    I had to stop using the 250 CMH bulb because after tending to my plants my arms would feel all prickly and sunburned. The grow tent is very reflective (one of many things I love about my grow tent) andwhen you open it, there must be a significant amount of UV bouncing out. If I was only going to open my grow tent up briefly once or even twice a day to tend to my plants, it probably wouldn't be an issue, but like many of us, I like to spend more time with my ladies than that.

    In any case, I switched to a 250 HPS bulb and the sunburn problem was gone. I was worried about stressing my plants by changing their light at this point, but they seem to like the HPS than the CMH. They showed no stress at all, perked up even perkier, and the buds seem to have gotten less leafy.

    I'm thinking they need at least one more week, maybe two, until they're ready. Any comments or suggestions would be very welcome. I probably come off as some kind of know-it-all, but all in all I've got less than 10 grows under my belt, and the 60-70's being what they were, I don't remember much about 8 of those.

    Funny thing, one thing I did remember was how to sex plants. Must be like riding a bicycle.

    these are some week 9 pics:




    My other plants got jealous because they didn't have any names, so this is Dew.








    This is TC, my biggest plant. She's up to 24" now.


    She wants to be pollinated so bad.



    Trippy is starting to get frosty.





    Trippy


    The Four Musketeers. They're inseparable. Literally.


    Again, comments and suggestions are very welcome.

    That's so funny res!

    Believe it or not, when I started my journal, I was thinking of calling it "setting sun's second highryder grow", I kid you not.

    Maybe we can come up with a name for this lowryder variety of mine. Let's see, they're not small and stealthy, and they don't autoflower.

    We could call it:

    "Screw this, time for 12/12".

    or maybe......

    "biggie smalls"

    or.........

    "Lowryder LST"

    take care res, and thanks for your support,

    Looked at the ingredients that make up your "soil." Seems like pretty healthy stuff. +REPs.

    Yeah, MHs tend to throw off UV in quantities. I would guess that switching back to it would net you a higher number of trichomes as the plant attempts to protect itself. Downside would be a good pair of shades (which you would want regardless for indoor gardening), long-sleeved shirt, and sunscreen whenever you want to hang out with your girls.

    Will be especially interested in learning how many grams of dry well-trimmed bud you get off of the 2-liter plant.

    That potting soil is available at our local OSH (Orchard Supply Hardware). It's made by the same company (Sunland) that makes the OSH house brand potting soils, but it's better than the stuff they make for OSH because of the organic ferts, microbes, etc. It's the most expensive potting soil in town at $10 a bag, but that's still less than a lot of decent mixes. I wish I had a pic of TC and her companion males before I chopped them down. They were much lusher, greener, bigger and healthier looking than the rest of the plants.

    Thanks for the reminder about the shades, sunblock and long sleeve shirt. I'm going to put those things right next to my grow tent so I make a habit of using them.

    I planted two plants in this grow in 2-liter bottles. I was originally going to do a hempy bucket style grow with the soda bottles, but being a newbie, I didn't want to introduce too many variables for me to screw up. I could fit two of those soda bottles into my cab (where I started my grow) along with two 3 gallon pots, so I drilled holes in the bottom of the soda bottles and filled them with potting mix.

    I did learn a bit from this grow about growing in 2-liter bottles. If you use green bottles, you don't have to worry about algae. It's very cool to be able to watch your root system develop through the clear (green) bottle. It's really easy to know when to water because you can actually see the soil at the bottom of the "pot" and the soda bottle just feels really light when it gets dry. The only downside is that when plants get bigger they suck the bottle dry every day. I have to water that plant daily because it goes from fully watered to almost bone dry in 24 hours. If I couldn't attend to my babies every day, that plant would be in serious trouble.

    I will keep a careful record of the yield from each individual plant.

    thanks for visiting and for your feedback TorturedSoul, I appreciate it.

    regards,

    setting sun
