Seedperson1's GWMFG Run
This is going to be my first journal here on CFC. It's also going to be my first photoperiod run. I have never been in a living situation where I could control light leaks so I learned to grow with autoflowers. Now Im in a new space and I have a dedicated grow area so I'm going to try my hand at a photoperiod run.
Ever since I popped my first seed, Ive been obsessively devouring information about cannabis and growing cannabis as well as the medical side of the plant. For at least a year, I listened to the Growing With My Fellow Growers show on spotify. Then I decided to join the youtube live and found a community of real awesome people who just welcomed me with open arms so this grow is going to be my tribute to the people who taught me a lot of what I know about growing. Fingers crossed I dont let them (and myself) down!
On deck we have:
Amy Aces from The American One
Velvet Punch from Jack Greenstalk/DojaDNA
New England Rock Candy V2 from Kyle Breeder
Snowcaine (Spartan Cut) from Twenty20 Mendocino
I also threw an Alien OG seed down as a back up
We are 9 for 9 on germination! Everyone is looking good. One Velvet Punch ripped a cotyledon coming up but, I think it’ll be fine.
All the jiffy pods are transplanted into a solo cup filled with Fox Farms Happy Frog potting mix and watered with plain tap water. Which, I actually haven’t even checked the ph or ec of it yet in this new house. I need to do that as soon as I find my pen. It’s somewhere in a box. Anyway, I’m gonna let them do their thing a couple of days. Newborns like to be left alone in my experience. Light is at 40% and about 24in. 24/0 light schedule right now. Temp is 77-83 throughout the day and rh is 50%-60%.
Ahh! I want to mess with them so bad but, there’s nothing to do yet. Gave everyone a shot of nutrient mix. Here’s the mix I’m using:
1gal tap water
1ml diamond nectar
1ml Rapid Start
ph to 6.2ish
Each plant got about 1oz or so
So, I burned a couple of them just a touch. It’s all good though. They’re chugging along just fine. I’ve had to make several tweaks to my environmental controls but, that’s to be expected in a new location. Temps are staying around 79-81f and rh is 50%-60%. Everyone is getting plain water from the tap. 6.3ph I’m going to install the in-line fans tomorrow and split the autos and the photos into their own tents.
Things are coming along nicely. Most of them have outgrown my rookie mistake of getting too eager to feed. I’m liking photos more and more because I feel like I can take my time. With autos, it’s a race to get them into their final homes and god forbid if you make a mistake. It could be the difference between 1 oz and 6 oz at harvest.
I’m planning on clipping a leaf off the 6 regs on Monday and getting those sent in for sex testing through Farmer Freeman.
Thanks for stopping in and thanks for all the grower love I’ve gotten from this awesome community!
Took a look at the roots and figured everyone could use a little more room. Uppotted into .8? Gal pots. Not quite sure the size of these. Got them off Amazon and they’re supposed to be a gallon but they definitely aren’t. I still like them for potting up a bit.
The medium is still plain Happy Frog and they all got about a cup of plain tap water and Recharge. At a mix of 1gal water to 1/2 teaspoon Recharge.
Nothing much to report. The sex tests for the Velvet Punch’s and the Amy Ace’s went out yesterday so I’m hoping for results by next Monday. Everyone got a bit of water with 1gal/1mL Rapid Start.
Thanks for stopping by! Grower Love!
Took the first and second branches off and topped everyone but one VP which needs a few more days before it gets topped too. I never really trained much with the autos I’ve grown. I’m having a lot of fun with these photoperiod plants!
Final pots! 3gal fabric pots of happy frog with 6 teaspoons of Growdots. Got one month veg nutes to burn through before flip day. Watered in about 2solo cups of water/recharge @ 1gal/1tsp.
Topped and transplanted within three days and they haven’t really skipped a beat. Maybe it’s the crystals lol
The ladies are looking good! Down to the final 4 in the tent. Giving just plain water and a bit of recharge.
Tried my hand at a bit of supercropping. I haven’t really done much canopy management since I just let the autos go au naturale. I hope I didn’t mess her up too bad.
