NYGC PBreeding: Kinda new, but I read a lot!

I am sooo happy about this challenge. We are all together so many problems may be shared and answered. CMB! (Newjack city reference). 

My first grow had CRAZY problems. I learned many things. Patience among them.

Lessons learned:

Vent OUTSIDE OF ROOM! ( I was wondering why my tent stayed so hot). 

Perfect basic grow principles before going "expert". (I went from bubble bucket to RDWC in the same grow cause it looked fun). 

Don't be a MORE ON! (I fed and burned the hell out of those girls) 

I like DIY so I will make that auto water system. I dont know about the drain system. I thought I would water just enough with no overflow.

STATS:

Coco and perlite 70/30 maybe. 

3x3 tent

Mars Hydro 900w (I know, blurple right?  Planning on the Mars hydro ts1000 since it's kinda cheap.)

Venting out window. Intake from room (is that cool?) Do I need forced intake? Let me know. 

Thinking of fabric pots. Was going autopots but you guys talk so much shit about them..... Discuss

I'm verbose so I'll try to calm it down a bit. The growing life is lonely. Lol. 

Peace and CD grease.

How many Seeds to pop?
  • Got a quick question before we start. I have room for 4 flowering plants . (3x3 tent, LED Mars hydro) How many seeds should I pop? I've been reading how people pop more than they need and do culling as time goes on. But these seeds are ALL precious, right. Do we have enough to be picky like that?

I will be a little late with germination but i'm in it to win it. 

I have made some last minute decisions. 

      I will flower with my original Mars Hydro 900w Blurple special, but by the time I am into flower I will be          switching to the Mars Hydro TS2000.

 

Thinking of going perpetual so I can see a smaller tent in my future. The first is 3x3. Thinking of something to hold clones and first stage plants (red cup girls). I just cant see a large tent yet. Its a personal grow.

This is going to be great!

ALRIGHT! I'm in the game! Just got my seeds (my fault) and I am about to crack them. What comes after the paper towel? Into Jiffy cube? Coco mix and beer cup? Or are you going straight from box to jiffy cube or coco without first germinating in towel. I've read so much stuff lately its giving me last minute indecisiveness. 

PLEASE HOLLA BACK QUICK. They are soaking now and I am a work. Gotta do something in 6 hours.

On "Grow from you heart, Podcast", Rasta Jeff says put the seeds pointy part down into jiffy cube or mix. Another guy says after the germination with the towel, put them root side down into a jiffy cube. 

Whats the best?

WHEW! I was getting worried and feeling the pressure! As I was delayed with the seeds (again, my fault) I procrastinated in preparing my room and materials. Thats what procrastination does for you. I'll post pics later. I'm only a week behind, so show me the way fellas!

Girls are germinated and in their beer cups with Mother Earth Coco-Perlite 70/30 mix. It said it was pre-buffered but I put it through 2 rounds of CalMag buffering anyway. 

The girls are in, tip side down as much as I could. Those little buggers like to curl up and you cant really straighten them. I calibrated my Blue Lab ph meter last minute, but got it done by the help of youtube. After playing with the water, I finally got to 5.5

DOME SET-UP

The dome is in a tub (didnt have a way to elevate light that close). They are to one side of the dome, I sprayed the inside walls with a mist of water, placed a germinating dome heater to the other side as not to put direct heat on the girls. My mat is heat controlled at 75 degrees (if it drifts 5 degrees, I'm still golden). 

My next hurdle is waiting for the girls to appear. Oh the pain, the pain. (original Lost is space Dr. Smith quote)

When I tried my humidifier at 70, something happened and the t6 kicked on at full blast knocking my temp to mid 60s trying to control the humidity. temp is set at 70-80 on t6. I have to finesse this setup to dial it in. I am exhausting out the window and pulling air from the room. intake is 4 inch, didnt think I'd be pulling at full blast.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT PPMS THEY ARE RUNNING!

I burned my girls again. 

Here's what I am doing and why:

Using GH 3 part, I'm trying to start them off with 1/4 strength.

I fill a bucket with 4 gallons of RO water.

I use the GH schedule for small veg - Micro 4 ml, grow 5 ml, bloom 1 ml (for 1 gallon)

I added Armor Si at 6 ml total for strength and stability.

4 ml total Rapid Start for the roots and because GH said to.

Okay, I added Diamond Nectar at 6 ml total because freakin' GH said to.

Floralicious Plus for the same reason at 1 ml total

Finally, 14 ml of CaliMagic

I know, I know. I ended up with 437 ppm and ph of 5.9

That sounded high to me but but I thought Armor Si, Calmag and the like didnt count because they were for support reasons.

Pictures are embarrassing but I'll add them later.

I just keep burning them. People say use half strength nutrients, but I am using 1/4 strength.

Environment is on point, I just need help feeding these girls.

Thanks.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! 

Current details: 

Temps: 70-80 degrees 

Humidity: 45-55

Week 6 day 4

Nutes: GH 3 part (following DrCoco formula for Early veg since they are so small)

Light: 18-6 Mars Hydro 900w Blurple. ( I hear it's really only around 450)

10 inches from canopy

Nutes in: 480 ppm/1021 EC

Nutes out: 486ppm/1034 EC

Now, with is this? Light color leaves

Cannabis Grow C54325C9 48F1 41F0 BFEB F0D0A3BE0AB0

And leaves look at little "bumpy"

Cannabis Grow F21B0501 9610 442D ADC7 41142B6619E2

Roots look good, I think.

Cannabis Grow 8D56EC39 404D 4A46 8F9C 9BD2365C2874

Oh Yeah, look how they are reaching for the sky. Some leaves are pointing straight up. Why?

About to built auto watering system, just looking for alternatives. I know there has to be another diy or turn key solution. Any clues? I like Dr Cocos diy, just want options to choose from. 

Small plants, I'll just have to veg a little longer.

HEY!!! Good times. I was freaking out there for a minute but I just opened my tent and spent some time with the girls. We've been through a lot but it's much better now. Environment was a big thing to me since that was my downfall on my last grow. I threw so much money at it I neglected my nutrient regimen. Just sitting and listening to the girls solved all that. 

We up-potted them with plenty of white shark microbs. There was NO transition lag, they just got up the next morning praising the light as usual.

I'm vegging a little longer to make sure I can get some nice clones. I say 3 each will do nicely. It would be a shame to find out I had the FIRE and let it go. 

Thanks for all the help. 

Growers Love

Oops, forgot to post pics.

I raised the light to about 10-12 inches, lowered the humidity about 5 degrees each week.

They loved the re-potting and the new milder nutes.

GADGET ALERT!!!

I saw someone else talking about these so I compared the cost of building the diy featured by Dr Coco to buying these and it was about $30 so I bit the bullet and ordered them.
