SAFC Misfit Autos: Fruity Pebbles x Banana Tangie

Hello,

For my debut grow I decided to step out of my comfort zone and  go soil rather than DWC. As strange as that sounds I have never grown in soil 🤣  Due to our quarantine situation keeping me from my job I had to choose a cheaper method but didn't want to let this keep me from growing.

I am using genetics from a home breeder I traded with saving some money but was assured I would not be disappointed. 

I m using 600 MH/HPS. This is my first time growing outside of LED so there's gonna be a bit of a learning curve.

Using Fox Farm Ocean Forrest soil.

I made up a batch of F.P.J to feed with.

Still waiting on soil and a replacement bulb in the mail but thought I would check out the progress on my fermented plant juice.

This is my first attempt at this but over the past few months I researched it heavily and thought why not??? It's still snowing here in Michigan but during a few of our warm days I took a walk and picked the early prolific growers to be a part of this natural fertilizer.

I used my mushroom grow tub to germ in because of its controlled heat and humidity.

Still waiting on my new light and fabric pots. I have never used fabric but decided to go with 3 gallons.

I found a artesian well near by and thought I would fill a few jugs and see how  my plants respond. It seems to be only slightly alkaline and PPM is only slightly higher than my tap water. 

Update: Far too many minerals plants immediately showed signs of disapproval

Alright finally got them in the soil 😎 

Also have my new MH light set up. Totally stoked for such a great upgrade to my grow. Still trying to find the right distance from light to plant. I have ballast turned down to 250 watts and seems to be about right and gave them their first drink of water.

The 2nd set of leaves have started to appear. One runt is still kicking but not sure if it's going to make

Having a bit of trouble maintaining a balance of air flow to heat. Light is putting off more heat than I anticipated. Might have caused a bit of heat stress??

Things seem to be going well. My experiment with water was a failure. I switched to distilled water and now all is well.

Added additional fans and a better humidifier

After a bit of research I discovered that my droopy leaves is most like caused by low RH The plants are transpiring more than they uptake. To remedy this I am trying foliar misting and going to run humidifier full-time. Hopefully this works.

Transplanted in to 3 gallon fabric pots. Changed to watering with distilled water with a bit of calmag added.

Plants have been much happier. The lower leaf wilting has stopped.

I m tempted to try some LST but I have no experience. I have looked at a few of the other grow journals in my misfits team and I am still a bit Leary. I may attempt with one plant and see how it goes. I am going to give them a chance to get rooted in a bit more after transplant before I try. Maybe if a fellow misfit sees this post they may lend a bit of Insight.

Aphids have become my nemesis!!! Trying to avoid using any insecticide. Because of the season most places are sold out of ladybugs or charging ridiculous prices. A fellow CFC grower gave me a bit of insight on the use of ladybugs via podcast and I have opted not to use them. I m researching alternative's. Other than this my plants have been incredibly slow growing. The breeder I obtained my seeds from informed me this strain is slow-to-start. Practicing patience 🤔

Training

First attempt at LST. It also gave me a chance to look over each plant and pick off the aphids. The infestation is not as bad as I thought. I sprayed them with insecticidal soap and neem oil for precaution.

Turned up ballast to 400 watts and raised the light to accommodate the added heat. Trying to keep her under 80F

Aphid battle

So I thought I would use some sticky traps as a preventative measure. Even though I removed all I am sure there are some strays hiding so hopefully this will catch them

Sticky traps are a success!!!

Plants seem to be free of bugs. Traps show the body's of the brave who tried to beat me LMFAO 

I also mixed distilled with a bit of tap water to bring my EC to a comfortable level. pHed water to 6.8 and turned ballast all the way up raises light a bit and all seems to be going well. Training is going well also. The bottom leaves that touched the soil during training have started to die so I am assuming that should be avoided in the future. 

 

Very happy with improvements.

Plants are finally starting to bush out. LST helped a lot. Feeding at 50%. They are emitting the most pleasant smell of any strain I have ever grown. Super stoked!!!
