SAFC Photoperiods: Green Crack - Bagseed
gonna try and get something from nothing 😉 got these seeds from a batch of green crack i got early this year, have 8 germinated, these were all started on 4/20, was gonna do an auto grow but have an existing grow that won't finish even, need the tent for drying so, here i am...
got lots of pics but will host them all on Imgur, links here:

DWC: now: 8x 3" netpots in 70l tote with 2x 4-outlet 15L/m air pumps, 8 stones (4 cylinder 4 round flat), will switch to 2 gal pails then 5 gal pails for each in 6" netpots (drop the 3" in the 6" with extra pellets) each 2 gal pail will have one stone, 5 gal pails will have 4 each (and one pump each) my water temps are high (24C) so i keep it very well oxygenated
2 tents in my setup, 3x3 (now) and 5x5 (later)
3x3: 3x Sunraise 1000w (150W full spec blurples ) (2 in 3x3 now) and a 5yr old unknown @300W LED Blurple (came with the 3x3 from a friend) as backups
5x5: Mars Hydro TS1000W and QB 240W LM301H 3500K +UV+IR (gonna have to get another Mars for this grow as these only cover 3/4 of the tent, have 3 plants under them at the moment)
was planning on having 4 total, if more are females (autos or feminized), well i ain't killing em 😉 will have to get creative with my space 😉
Germination: plopped in water for 2 hrs then paper towel in ziplock, started using rapid rooters upside down ;), i split the bottom and clip the edges off the top (now bottom) to insert back into the tray they come in and use the clipped pieces to wedge that crack shut, that hole at the bottom provides airspace where it soaks up water, works great (i had heard that that hole was too big and we had to cover it, so i came up with this method instead) https://imgur.com/cFFMw6I
Nutes: using Megacrop (older formula) for the first time also (@800EC right now, started at 400 EC w2 and slowly climbed her up to 800 EC) on it's own for veg, got sweet candy for flower add-on (Had Advanced Nutrients before, currently using that in my other grow)
Man these seeds are on crack 😉 the growth is unlike anything i've seen yet (which ain't much) even more vigorous than my current autos, was very surprised to see this...

could there be a chance these seeds are autos?
bagseed from a MOM (Mail Order Marijuana) up here in Canada, really nice buds, excellent strain, could they have grown autos on a big scale for this type of market?
ps: got @35 seeds from an ounce once, never again and been getting this regularly...but not anymore 😀
Growth is too fast lol , every morning i wake up to less space
cutting it close, my other tent grow's harvest day is this tuesday the 12th according to my journal, but may go a few days more still... clipped a piece off the buds to check trichomes with a microscope and mostly milky with some clear on calyxes , bit of amber on the sugar leaves
gotta move'em soon, the roots are gonna start tangling up in the tote, if they do, can i chop'em without killing them?
separating them in the 3x3 won't work, not enough room, guess i could take out 2-3 into buckets but would be quite restrictive... may be an early "sativa heady high" chop 😉
also: the good news is it looks like they will actually finish together (Cheese are 2 weeks older than the SS on the left)
My babies are doing great, working on a plan to have all 8 going, crossing my fingers they are all female, gonna prepare for it 😉
my 5x5 is only 3/4 used, if my harvest can't be done by friday, i will move the 2 biggest 'CrackBabies' to the 5x5 with another light (blurple)
thank god i had spares, don't have the extra mars light yet (coming soon, next week i hope) will put both plants in the 70L tote currently used for seedlings then switch to 107L tote (deeper) rest as planned, with 2gal-5gal
i can put 6 2gal buckets in the 3x3 and the tote in the 5x5 (2 plants) till autos are done,
gonna be tricky, need that 3x3 for drying, so will do it all at once, chop, hang, move, trim, hang, smoke a fatty 😉
well i bit the bullet and got another 240w QB for the 5x5 instead of the extra mars 😀
will use the mars for the 3x3, so now i can start'em in white light too...sick of using green lenses to take pictures, i wanna see my babies with the naked eye
INSIDE a CALYX
was taking pictures to check trichomes this morning and saw this,
scared the crap outta myself thinking a pollen sac just opened :O , took those pics...but then remembered that piece i cut off 2-3 days ago.....well... that piece i cut off checking trichomes a few days ago had a little sugar leaf still hanging on that bud (pic 1 bottom right, you see it there), and there was still a calyx, that i FIM'd when i cut it off, stuck to it.... sliced it right in half...check this out ... INSIDE a CALYX
here is a shot of that sugar leaf, 3 trichome types in here 😉
ROOTS (...Bloody ROOTS!!) 🙂
still haven't moved the crack babies, just not enough space till my harvest is done, so I'm pushing it in the tote.... MY 4X2 (and other gear) ARRIVES FRIDAY SO WILL HARVEST THEN, AND SWITCH EVERYTHING OVER TO THE 5X5...oops caps on lol
didn't have enough gear for the switch right now (air pumps and netpots that are in use)
getting a little crowded in there and those roots are getting massive and won't fit thru the hole soon...
Trichome check on Autos in 5x5
FYI: images won't rotate VERY FRUSTRATING, SOMEONE PLS FIX THIS ASAP !!!!!!!
worst is: some will rotate and right away too, some won't till hrs later and some will never rotate....i just deleted whatever doesn't rotate immediately...
till this is fixed, you're getting imgur links only for more than a few pics from now on
Super Cropping on the 4 in the middle, before and after shot...
they were ahead of the others and lst didn't really work out(using tape on the leaves, they outgrew the pull down faster than than i could adjust and ran out of surface very quick lol, so bent them big branches down and outward from each other Kushman style (super cropping/chiropractics), should do it for now...
Question: i know this is a mostly CoCo growing group, but does anyone know if cutting roots to separate them in a DWC setup will harm them, will they recover like when you super crop???
gonna have to do this soon, and if i can't, will have to look at a SOG of some kind, and keep'em in the tote :/
gonna be tricky for DWC, gotta lift that cover to add water etc every day!!! (i move the cover to the side of the tote a bit with roots still in there to do my thing)
