Straightening The Curve

Greetings and welcome to the first documentation not initiated by a grow challenge. 
As with my PTGC, I will be using two strains from a Purple City Genetics 🧬. 
The seeds from PCG have already been popped and are currently in the latter days of their flowering stages.

White Bubba and Runtz x F1 Durban x Gushers are the current clones I will be using. I have already seen patterns from each of the 4 original mothers being grown now. 2 White Bubba are growing side by side and are growing in very similar patterns. Size of the plants as well as the flowers are very much the same from each seed. 
The 2 Runtz x F1Durban x Gushers being grown from seed at this time are showing two TOTALLY different growths patterns. One is much larger, took longer to flower, and is much lighter green than the other. The 2nd seed is squat with dark green leaves. It started to flower much earlier than its sister. Really exciting to see the different phenotypes in one line. I feel this is worth mentioning at the beginning as the clines have been pulled from each phenotype. 

The equipment Im using is a DIY recirculating derp water culture system. I have 5 plant locations in 5 gallon buckets with a 15 gallon Reservoir. Veg will be under a 400w metal hailde with flowering under the same 400w light but with a HPS bulb. 
Fox farms has been the main nutrient used in previous the grow and will be used in this one as well. The dirty dozen comes with everything I need for a complete grow. I will be using Cal-Mag and silica blast from botanicare as well. 

The clones I am using were pulled from flowering plants. I am curious and hoping to see how monster cropping works. I apparently root a flowering clone and revert it back to a vegging state. By doing this there are supposed to be more than normal branching growth. Both of these strains are a bit long in the flowering times so I had to make cuttings some time ago.

Day 1

Moved rooted clones to temporary soil containers until grow area is clear. Just using a cfl on them 24 hrs to keep them from flowering any more and to help revert them back veg.

Well, looks like I may be switching lights for this grow!  I’ve blessed with the Photontek X465 Pro LED from our PTGC  here at Coco For Cannabis!! Big Ups to Dr. Coco and all the crew at CFC. You guys are awesome! Thank you!! 🙏🌿💚🌿 Big Up’s to all the Growers as well! The CFC community is amazing and just what I need in my life! 

I just received  this news Monday so it’ll be some time before delivery, set up and usage on the Photontek x465. I feel like I’m gonna have some big shoes to fill with this light! 

Really no progress at this point with all the clones. I’ve never monster cropped so I’m not sure how long it will take to see new growth. A small CF light stays on the ladies 24/0 to help with the revert back to a veg state.

Photontek has already delivered the new light!! That was only like 4 days! So happy! I’ve already installed the new Photontek x465w And it looks great! I’m switching from a 400w hps to this LED for the last couple of weeks of flower

Whew wee! How time flies and how time also changes us! 
So here I am thinking about how to best utilize the gift I’ve been given. Whoa! I mean the Photontek light but I guess we are all gifted in our own ways. So, how do I do my best in this next grow? 
i believe the thoughts of upping my game come directly from receiving this light. It is a catalyst for me. We push our plants to do their best but what pushes us to do ours? I believed I was doing my best before. But I lacked vision and knowledge. Normally I’d say knowledge comes with time but in the CFC world knowledge comes by asking. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you will find. I feel like that should be an ancient quote meant to enable us to achieve all of our dreams... Anyhow, I felt an energy push me. It pushed me to where I already am but enabled me to see in a different way. ALL the info I need for success is here in this site. I just gotta forget that I think I know something. Lol 

I went coco. 💯 in. If I received a light from coco for cannabis then I should grow in coco. Give it a shot and try my best to follow all that has been laid out for us by the good Dr. Coco! 
So having said all that... here we go!

10/25/20- After reading and listening to the Doc on growcast I decided to go with seeds as well as clones for this grow. The vigor of seedlings vs. the clones I cut from flowering plants led me to think that the seeds may beat out the clones in time.

Im going to be posting a lot so I can get on real time  (10/31/20)

I lost my coco buffering virginity today. It was long over due. It was a bit awkward at first. You know cause it’s so sloppy and and all. I guess it was sloppy cause I don’t know what I’m doing. Yet!  
Since I will be using four 5 gal fabric pots I went ahead and dehydrated, rinsed, strained and buffered a whole block of Roots Organics coco. I’m using Botanicare Cal-Mag. 7.5 ml per gal for buffering solution. 
After using 5 gallon buckets to buffer in solution for 8+ Hrs, I did it again. 
Onced buffered I added a bag a perilite to the coco at the recommended ratio of a bag to a brick. I don’t know if that wording has been used but I dig it. A bag to a brick, yo! 

As of the 25th all seeds are in paper towels.

White Bubba has popped ! I’m going to let the tsp root get a bit longer before placing into jiffy pellet. 
I had already prepped my jiffy cubes last night in hopes of seeing root today!

White Bubba seed has long enough root to put into jiffy. Runtz hybrid is aldi ready to place in jiffy. One placed in jiffy plugs I will put both in a humidity dome.

Its funny how sometimes we put stuff off only until forced to do it! I mean I MEANT to do it before hand!! Lol 

I had to get solo cups ready for seedlings. I filled each cup with coco mix and rinsed with pure water to lower buffeted coco EC of 730 down to an EC of @100. The coco in the cups needs to be fertigated prior to transfer so I mixed a target 1000 EC seedling blend gallon and diluted down. Outflow on cups ended up at around 338 for transfer. Ph of seedling blend was 6.5

All of this was to be done prior to having tap root emerging from the bottom of the jiffy plug. Surprise!!! Do it NOW!

 White Bubba has tap root 3 days later! That’s Sunday morning 10 ish to Wednesday afternoon 4ish.  50 sumfin hrs later??!! Yeah buddy! 
So I had to transfer into solo. ✊

I use to run DWC before but there is a certain Jen ne sais quoi to crowing in coco. Is it the intimate handling of seedlings swiftly growing in solo cups? Is it the thrill of building a nectar fit for gods and goddesses? Is it that gentle application of this nectar to each baby girl that builds the the relationship only written about in poems and plays? In any case... I LOVE IT! 

Started fertigating seedlings and clones in their temporary solo cup homes. 
•Seedling/clone feed - Target mix EC 1000

Each seedling was fed 25ml of diluted target mix. runoff was 5ml 
EC 400 Ph 6.0

Alright. Fast forward. Nov 7th. Everything has been going as Mother Nature intends. The cannabis is growing in coco at an alarming rate. It’s almost like that Venus fly trap play/movie/meme. I walk in the grow room and there is this green goddess hovering in between the lights and the floor. Her gaze is mesmerizing. It’s as if I’ve peaked on my mushroom ride and the eyes I’m staring into are those of the ancients. But it’s an ancient me along with everything and everyone that has ever been. The feeling begins to lift me up. A deep ripple vibrates and tears down the scene around me. Im left with the fierce yet gentle eyes of a being that has nurtured and coddled not only me but the entire existence of this conscious organism we ate all a part of. The difference in existence for us and others is that we have all starred into these green eyes and felt the power, the desire, the peace, the oneness... the indescribable. 
Each time I open the garden I’m reminded that the sight I see is the same as you see. We have different methods but we all view and share the same beauty. Thank all of you  for sharing your time and passion. I B appreciate it. 
Im not the best at journaling. I’ve skipped days. I’ve gotten lost in the moments. The wonderful moments! I’m following Dr. Coco’s ways and I’m seeing amazing results! As stated previously, I get lost! Lost and living in the green! This is my up time date post. I’ve missed a few days and steps but I’d rather be on real time instead of living in the past. Lol. 💚✊

Woo hoo!! The grow room was upgraded with a new to me ac unit! I’ve been struggling with temps and humidity since I started using this outdoor closet. The ladies are loving the consistency. I’ve gotten all of the seedlings and clones on 1050 EC feed at 6.0 ph.

Consistent temps. Humidity is a bit low. I will be making some moves to get it it up to 65%. It stays in the 40-50% range but it’s not ideal. I up potted the two monster crop trials to their final 5 gallon fabric pots. The seedlings still need to reach 6 nodes before I up pot but they are going strong. 15 days from breaking surface and I’m happy. Clones are really bushing out. I’ll wait a few days to start pruning in them. I’ll root the cuttings and maybe shove a bunch of party cups in there. Lol 

Lesson for the day... even if calibrated, check pens to ensure accuracy. I calibrated my ph pen last week. It was off 2 points this morning! There is no way I was using it that far off but I should have double  checked it when I saw strange leaf spots. Check, check, and check again... 

Still running 5 full bars in the Photontek fixture at 50%. Ladies seem to be happy about it.

Is everybody in? Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin! It’s been a bit since my last entry. Funny how much time I spend in the grow room and chat but never here...🤔

... So let’s see..... I had two in fabric pots last post ..  I’ll post pics from that point. 

Im not gonna get into majors details about EC and what not at this time. I follow CFC guidelines for feeding, testing and monitoring. I have to bump this or lower that but I think we all have a sweet spot we have to find. 
Let the show begin..
