First Grow- PUDC & Sunset Sherbet (Soil)

Growing in a 2x2 Mars Hydro Grow Tent with a Mars Hydro 600W light, oscillating tower fan, 1.6 liter humidifier, 4in in-line fan with carbon filter.

Late to the grow journal party but I’ll start with my soil composition and what I’ve done up until this point. The sunset sherbet seeding sprouted within 12 hours, almost too eager to begin life. However despite ideal conditions the pineapple upside down cake never sprouted so I started a new seed on September 3rd that ended up sprouting. 

Each seedling was planted into 5 gallon fabric pots. The Sunset Sherbert was first started in a small cup of Sun Gro Black Gold seed starter on a mat warmer in my office (under a T5 light from Home Depot I purchased several years ago to start my garden seeds indoors), then transplanted to the 5 gallon on September 3rd, when I began to worry about how leggy it had become under the old lights.  

The soil composition I used in each 5 gallon is the following:

  • 3/4 of a 5 gallon bucket of Fox Farms Ocean Forest 
  • 1/2 cup of Dolomite Lime
  • 7 cups of Vermiculite 
  • 4 cups Peat Moss
  • 2 cups Red Farm worm castings 
  • 4 cups mushroom compost

I mixed each bucket by hand and then continued to mix it as a filled each 5 gallon fabric plant pot. I then moistened the soil before placing the SS transplant as well as the PUDC seedling. 

Watering schedule:

I mist 2 times daily in addition to the humidifier. I do one watering every 3-4 days depending on how the soil looks and feels. The water I’m using is from my tap, with a ph of 6.7. ( I “checked” it before using it on my plants. Hoping the soil and microbes would help buffer as needed and the cannabis gods be merciful).

  1. Misted the girls and refilled the humidifier. Plan on topping the SS this afternoon when I wake up.

Yesterday I correctly topped my SS and did some  trimming on the lower branches with the help of an experienced grower. I also switched my SS to the back of the tent so I could focus on lst with PUDC this week. This morning  SS looks a little stressed out. I top dressed SS with Fox Farms Ocean Forest and some mushroom compost. Both plants got a misting and the humidifier got increased since humidity was in the 50’s. The temperature has started dropping and was 22 Celsius this morning when I opened the tent.

SS is starting to pick herself up after topping and sculpting. Planning on training PUDC this week for some lst. Morning misting. RH: 57% Temp :22 Celsius

Noticed an increase in RH this morning ranging from 77-80% Temp was 79F. Only change was opening up a vent screen for more air flow/CO2 paired with the increased humidity due to weather. Lightly misted the girls only in the am. Since humidity was still high I held off on the afternoon misting and also turned off the humidifier which was on low. Observed a little damage on leaves to both plants. I believe the damage occurred when I was attempting to fix the fan and the humidifier became off balanced and landed on both plants. Still no nutes given. 
Also tucked back the larger leaves, trying to train them down for better light placement on the plants. Planning on topping the PUDC soon.

Flipped the girls to flower due to the decreased space in the 2x2. Began using Nectar of the Gods fertilizer. Using NoG fertilizer schedule I mix my nutes in a 0.5 liter container. Using mL instead of tsp/tbsp. Every third water I add nutes. I also supercropped on the 12th.

Trichs have started to appear on the PUDC, the 45 day flower period might be close to accurate. Watered both plants today. They seem to really be reaching up these past few days. RH stays around 65. Temps around 70. The PUDC is also showing some red in its stems and leaves. Excited to see how she develops and how much farther she is ahead of the SS even though the PUDC is a week younger than SS.

Triches started appearing on SS yesterday. You can smell the creaminess of the PUDC when adjusting her leaves while the SS is a little more gassy. I raised the light a few inches up. RH was 70% while temp was 72.3. The outside dew-point has been high which could be contributing to my high RH factor. That or I need a new hydrometer.

Fed the girls a little more nutes than I normally do today to see how they would handle it. Also opened up the vent flaps in the tent as well as opened the doors to the room for a few hours to allow some fresh air flow. The wind was a little crisp but helped bring the RH down to 56% and the temp is now in the 60’s.

Temp was in the 70’s with RH at 44%. The heat has officially been turned on in the main house causing an increase in grow room heat. I closed the mesh windows of the grow tent and watered both 5 gallon pots with 0.75 liters of water due to the soil being dry. Another thing that contributed to the drop in humidity was an increase in the exhaust fan speed. When I wake up in the afternoon I will determine if the girls need more water.

Top dressed both SS and PUDC with 2 party cups worth of mushroom compost, one party cup worth of word castings and one party cup of FFOF. In addition to the top dressing both plants also got 0.5 liters of water. Runoff observed. Temp was in the low 70’s with RH up to 55%. Gently manipulated the main branches to open up the center of each plant and tucked leaves around in an attempt to even out the canopy. Cream and pineapple scents are more prominent in the tent.

Opened the tent this morning temp was 75.3, RH 77%. Opened the tent all the way up and adjusted the lower vent to decrease Rh, RH was reading 54% when I closed the tent.

PUDC is taking over the majority of the tent. I wonder if it is due to flowering time since we are halfway through the suggested flower time or if it is the lst+ sc. SS projected harvest time is an additional 2 weeks more than PUDC. Debating if improving the light in the tent will increase the yield.
