NYGC Peat: Blackberry Auto
Day: -1

This will be something a bit different for me and should be a fun little NYGC grow.

This grow will be a single blackberry auto from fastbuds grown in fox farm ocean forest in a #3 airpot under a 140w led. I haven’t grown in peat in years,  so its back to the future when burples were in style, with full spectrum this time.

The light is a FTG Infinity Board single 140w and was a prize from a DrCoco giveaway, it is small but the enclosing room has another tent and cant take more heat.  There’s plenty of room in the tent so it won’t be filled up, if conditions allow it I may add some side lighting during flower, I dont expect a very big plant.

My nutrients will be Jack’s Hydro synthetics with some customization for the medium and other additions.  Previous grows in peat have been organic so that will be new.
Edit: I plan to grow organically. I will be using Down To Earth brand fertilizer among others, probably mainly the 444 liquid and langebenite.

The seed will be started tonight, New Years Eve. 😀

The seeds were dropped into water on new year’s eve. By the next day, they had sunk, then after a day in paper towels the radicle was peeking out, one seed is a day behind the other but they both have germinated.

and then into the rooter plugs. I don’t usually use these for seeds because i have had problems with the roots twisting. I thought i would give them another try. The shoots are up and leaves are showing. Sure enough one plant has a twisted root i can see thru the opening. D’oh.

the plant on the left has a visible twisted root.

I have a tent set up now. There sure is plenty of room for a planned small grow. The light I planned to ise has no dimmer, why would they design a light without using the dimmable power, there can’t be much cost savings. So for the seedlings i will use my qb board. The amount of power i can run in this tent will be determined by the room temp so its still tbd.

heres the light

heres the tent with two lights and the seedlings under the qb, dimmed to the lowest and adjusted to 5k lux. They are getting a weak feed at about 400 uS ec, which is my usual feed diluted with purified water. The pure water is another change, i will use half tap and half ro till the plant gets bigger.

Transplant day. Usually i might wait for more roots, but this will do. I like to give autos plenty of root space. They look a bit light so i want them in the media. I added some granulated mykos (Down To Earth brand) to the Fox Farm Ocean and watered with half strength nutes and yucca to treat the peat. I expect they will need water only for a while.

End of two weeks, the seedlings look fine. These have been watered once since transplant, using my tap water, no nutes but that will have Ca, diluted with ro to 250 uS ec and added a drop of powerSi to pH it down to 6.7.
Its slightly cool in the tent and the fan blows on them, theres a little ripple in the leaves and they look a bit light but overall nice and healthy so they seem to be taking up the amended nutes in the ff.

Watered yesterday, and added some Roots brand Oregonism XL microbial innoculates to one of the plants. I wanted to see the effects in comparison. Interestingly, the plant that got the microbes is drooping today, as if overwatered. I tried to water just till runoff on both, and adjusted the pH, so it’s not clear why this reaction would occur. The plant on the right got the XL.

Also raised the light and increased the intensity. Its at about 20k lux now. The tent was slightly cool so that will warm it up a bit. I decided to use organic nutes for this grow, when the time comes.

Time to transplant. Only growing one, so the larger plant is getting up potted into one gallon. Usually i just go right to the final container, this time i will use a one gallon intermediate for week.

I have decided to use organic fertilizer. I have some Down to Earth nutrients from previous grows, it looks like the all purpose is needed in a weak dose to bring out some green. Later i will use the bloom for more P and langebeite for K. Watered in with 1/2 tap, 1/2 ro, and 2 ml fert per 250ml water which give me about 1000 ec and 6.6 pH.

Its interesting that the plant that got the inoculant is smaller, they were the same size before the treatment. The roots on the treated plant are smaller but show more branching. This will be an experiment for another grow.

I potted up the second plant. The roots had filled in a bit. I dont plan on flowering it out at the moment, but it’s easy enough to keep it going. Didn’t have another airpot so this one gets a 1g nursery pot. Also gave them both a foliar with some calcium, magnesium, and the 4-1-3, at about 1000ec with pH 6.6. That should help green then up a bit. 
Before pot up,  heres the roots, and both plants in one gal containers.

Their color is a little better, the foliar is helping. They look like they are about to show pistils soon. I am second guessing putting them into intermediate containers, it probably would have been better to go right to the final #3. They still look a bit hungry too, next time in ff i will start feeding right from the begining.

Transplant day. Preflowers are showing. The daily foliar is bringing some green.  I am going to try amino acid foliar because the 5-1-4 liquid odor is too strong.

The roots are peeking through the bottom, not completely filled in but i want to avoid any constriction. Some dry sports in the medium, I will add some yucca to the feed and water more slowly.

The size difference is noticeable. Still plan to grow out only the larger one.

Moved them under the bigger light. The qb is lowered to the minimum, and both lights are tilted to provide some side lighting. I will monitor the temp and see how much power i can run.

The other seedlings in the tent are for an unrelated project and will be removed in a couple weeks.

The growth proceeded rapidly into flower. Feeding a liquid 2-6-4 with some amino acid for N and aded langebenite for K and magnesium. the lights are at a considerable tilt to try to get the side lighting.

All set for flowering. The power is about 200w, which keeps the temp around 82f in the day. If the weather cools off i can go a little higher.

I culled this plant out. Just no room. This will be the last time we see her.

This plant doesn’t look too good but it is flowering. The nutrients i am using are not a good match, and it shows a lot of problems. Interesting purple tho.

This isn’t the same grow, but i dont have a journal for my other tent so i will stick one pic in here. Just finished the full 2x4 tent, here are the flowers. I am happy with the product (its royal highness kush photos in coco) and the yield.

I started some more of these blackberry autos for the freed up tent. i will do them in coco and expect better results. The aroma of the blackberry is very fruit, with slight undertone of earth of skunk. Blackberry is a good strain name for the aroma an the color.

I will probably start another journal for these, the next generation.

Back to the blackberry auto in ff. This will be ready in a week. Smells great. I am not totally happy with the result, but it was an experiment and its an interesting plant.
