NYGC Coco: You choose
Hello All - this is my first diary at CfC so thought I should jump straight in to the NYGC 😇

- Wilma Large 4 pot, 18ltr plastic pots that have been heavily drilled
- 2x 80w tube heaters
- Bud Box pro - 1m x 1m x 2m
- Phresh Hyperfan V2 – EC fan and GAS EC1 controller, passive intake
- Inkbird environment controller
- Canna Pro coco, and canna clay pebbles at about 60/40 coco/hydroton
- Airstone in in the res
Grow Genius Monosilic
Growth Technology Calmag
Remo Velokelp (foliar use only)
(cant remember my grow or bloom A&B will update later)
The tent sits inside a room I built with wood, plaster board, insulation, doors etc… the location is outside the house so it is well protected with two layers of insulation prior to the tent itself. I will get some pics up when I find them of the Build inside the garage to show what I am waffling on about.
Temps: 18 to 25
Humidity: 45 to 55
Water res temp: 20
So as of writing, I have two plants waiting to finish out in there, a Blue Mystic auto and a subby seed which is a cross between BlackJack Auto x UK Cheese x Blues. I was hoping they would be done by now but a little to much LST and topping earlier on slowed them down by a couple of weeks but will be worth it. Ultimately these are out as they were planted a long time ago and will be finished this side of January.
The question now is what to diarise for the NYGC?
There is a Auto Northern Lights from Seedsman, and an Auto Zummat (which is a name I gave it as I have no idea which packet the seed came out of 😆 they both shed their helmets on the 5th of December, I also have a Auto Jack Herer which showed leaf on the 10th December.
I shall pop some pictures up when I get the chance, or when I am not so high to get this diary started.
Happy growing all 👍
Hello All - so here they are. As mentioned it is a bit messy in the room as there are two plants that should have been done by now but are busy packing weight and most of teh space at the same time.
The plant in the small green pot is the Northernlights and the one in the black proper Wilma pot is the Zummat (unknown)
They are both doing fine, maybe a touch too much nutes but just topped it up with water to bring them back, 10 days in - they were both planted in to the pots you see them in after the wet tissue treatment.
Very light on nutes for now with Tribus (few drops per litre), Formulex 5ml p/l. once I see a little more shrubbery I will get them on to the auto feed and a more grown up regime.
Normally I would set the timer to feed starting 12 times during lights on for 1min a time increasing to 3 minutes then 5 minutes so they get fed a lot - but as it is coco and a recirc system it does them no harm, in-fact I think they grow better then when I used to do 1 or 2 longer waters a day.
anyhow, time to roll one up - take care all
hello All - there is some space now so will be moving the Jack Herer in to the tent later.
here is what it looks like now
Being hand fed for the time being until the last flowering plant coes down then I can change the res to grow nutes.
They are getting, 5ml p/l Formulex, couple of drops of Tribus and topping it up with CalMag to 1.2EC and a PH of 6.
Take care all
Hello - just a quick picture update. All looking good the first couple are taking off now and the Jack is starting to get a grip with the environment so a few more days and that should get going
Auto Northern Lights
Auto Jack Herer
The nutes have been upped very slights to 1.2/1.4 EC and they are still being hand fed due to the other plant still in flower in the tent.
Temps and humidity are very stable, just a reminder the larger two are now 16 days old and the small lady is only 11 days of age.
They look deroopy, but not to worry I drown spray them in the morning with Remo Velokelp - that stuff is amazing especially after toping, training, breaking - they bounce back same day, a spray a day really helps get the roots going.
Take care all, merry Christmas/holidays all and happy growing
Hello All - I hope you had a grand old Crimbo if you do that's, otherwise I trust you are all well, fine and dandy!
Just a quickie today to bring things up to speed.
All being fed the same now - still hand watered (annoyingly)
The humidity has been a bit sketchy over the past few days and has reached over 60 for a couple of points, with the combination of the Inkbird and EC1 controllers doing their thing so it is not a major drama just a tad annoying that it is not bang on...
Today they will go on to full 'Grow' nutes as they are still on their starter mix of formulex, Monosilic, Tribus.
The Auto Zummat really has taken off now and is growing well, I have trimmed her down a few times as I will only keep a few main heads for this one. She will maintain the head Cola and the bottom/first four, and it will shape out like a Christmas tree. She is happy, a few leaves/branches off, a drenching of Velokelp and she is up and running.
The Auto Northern Lights, is copying the Zummat all the way just in mini version as it is in a small pot. and with the bigger flowering plant in its way, I have little access to it to trim it down - I did pull it out the tent and give it a once over.
And finally the last addition the Jack Herer Auto, not a lot to report, she is a good little girl, growing well in the shadow of her much larger cousin.
I am hoping the older lady to finish up very soon, but she is packing on weight and really looking tasty so it would be criminal to chop her now.
Take care all - stay safe
hello one and all - I trust you all had a pleasant Christmas or any other celebrations you may have had.
As of right now after catching up with the other entrants for the NYGC I feel like a bit of a gibbon....New Year means new year, therefore the plants I already have in the tent will not be my submission. The final flowering lady is half down and the other half should be down by this evening freeing up space for one more lovely lady which is the one I shall diarise here.
I have some seeds coming from Super Sativa Seed Club - Auto Bourbon, which is what I will crack when it arrives - so from being an eager beaver and forgetting December 21 isnt in 22 🤣, I will be one of the late starters.
Happy growing all
Right then , right then - my seeds have arrived from SSSC so to try to catch up with the plant that I will be running for this grow I put 1 straight in to a ramekin with warm water and H2O2 where it will remain until the morning and will be moved to w wet tissue until a tail arrives and it shall be moved swiftly in to her final pot.
The other plants although no longer part of this grow are doing really well - the Blues x UK Cheese x Black jack is down and is now curing after a 10/12 day dry, the smell is intense - cant wait to open the grove bags in a months time to roll up a fat one. The unknown plant named Auto Zummat is trooping, she has not missed beat.
Cant seem to upload my pictures, not that exciting but the start is now - yipee 😎
Take care all
Hello all - right then, right then, right then - finally I am getting my shit sorted.
so lets try this again.... so I have just worked out the issue. My phone decided to change how it was saving photos - they are now saved in .heic instead of .jpg or .jpeg. So when trying to upload photos it wouldn't do it. It seems to be the thing thats on its way so I assume websites will adapt to accept that file format - the pics are a bit cleaner and the file size is much smaller, so I do for sure see it as the way forwards in next iterations of gadgets.
As mentioned, and as to stay in teh spirit of a NYGC I stopped what I started in terms of the plants I started in December and waited for some seeds that were kindly donated by the SuperSativaSeedClub SSSC. I have some Sweet Bourbon Auto Kush.
As they arrived I popped two, and the pics will bring you up to date.
They were put in water and h2o2 to soak on the the 11th January, and they soon popped to life.
I had a bit of a funny one - after they broke their shells and ready to be put in to a root riot, my partner reminded me that we had to go to visit my parents the following day. The following day came and I wrapped up the propagator in a towel and put it in the back seat of the car. In the meantime I made up very weak ltr of water, PH down, and Formulex - this I managed to forget at home. Anyway, after the 200 mile drive I arrived at the airBnB near my parents place and plugged the prop back in and all was well.
The next morning I realised I forgot the water I had made up, so I had to find a shop, get down there - I found some Bio-down, and canna Start.
Then 4 days later I drove them home again and got them in to the tent - well travelled ladies they are 🤣
Another thing going on, the Northern Lights and other Unknown are not flowering, they sre great looking plants and are taking up too much space, they are at however many days and teh Jack Here that was planted a week later is flowering full pelt already. In order to make room for these two, I will cut on of those down.
Anyhow - happy growing all
Not much to show - in final pots now as I made space
just a couple of snaps to show where they are today
The temps outside have been rather cold, which the first evening I was not ready for and only had one small rad connected to the Inkbird, I have swapped it out for a larger one and the temps are all back tp normal and within a nice small range.
Take care all
Good day one and all - i hope everyone is well!
So the two SSSC seeds are slow but surely rooting out - this morning I saw a little spurt so I expect them to start taking off over the next day or two. I must admit the slowness surely came from myself, I took them out of the prop and uncovered completely all a tad too sudden...
Anyhow - the news today is I planted a Mephisto seed after being so pissed with the Northern Lights from Seedsman - they grew and grew and grew, the most healthy looking plants but never went in to flower so binned the pair of them. So the Mephisto seed in question is a Creme De La Chem X Forum Stomper, hoping for it to catch up the other two then I can simplify my watering and remove hand watering from the equation totally.
The Creme De La Chem X Forum Stomper, is showing leaves now and is sitting in the prop under a little LED which I use just get things going until I put them in the final pot in the tent.
Finally, a quick snap of the Swwet Bourbon - doing its thing.
The flowering plant in the background is the Jack Herer Auto just chugging along after bringing it back to life.
Happy growing all
HELLO HELLO HELLO. - hello all, I hope everyone is doing well!
The ladies are doing well, I would say they are running a little slower than normal for autos but nothing out of order.
Watering is still being done by hand and the res sits at 1.2 EC with a PH of 5.9.
I have to go to Portugal for a few days so I have a bit of a dilemma to sort out, I have 3 plant on hand watering and 1 on auto, I need to move the three on to auto watering and find a way to feed the flowering plant alone. I have a full Blumat system but I don't have time to test it etc..before flying out.
I think I will order one of those blumat singles that pull water up from a tank instead of using gravity to pull it down - this way I can change the res water from flower to grow, put the young ladies on the Wilma auto dripper and have the single flowering plant in being drip fed by a blumat...
anyhow - a week later than the above pics they look decent enough, but still really waiting for them to flourish.
Take care all - happy growing
couldnt resist - either I am so stoned I have no idea what on earth, or this blew me out of the water laughing
