NYGC Coco: Ziggy grows fire. Hopefully.

Hey all! 

New to the forum, and fairly new to growing. I’m currently running a quick set of autos and 2 photos that I messed up, so I figured I would drop more seeds and see if I could get some better plants and potentially eliminate ones that aren’t growing as robustly 

I’ll be growing from seed in coco using GH powder nutes. I’ve successfully pulled some great weight and bud from previous grows using the same method. 


5x5 and a 3x3


Phantom Photobio 640w LED in the 5x5, HLG 300L 270W in the 3x3


Photos - dropped 4 Elev8 Thundersnow and Apple Candies. Will likely only grow 1-2 of each strain to chop. Also dropped a few bag seeds that are years old from some fire Purple Punch that Hermed  - we’ll see what happens there… 

Autos: dropped 3 Forgotten Cookies from Mephesto Genetics. Only looking to run 1-2 of these to chop. 


Pure Mix Coco and Perlite (70/30 mix)


GH powdered Maxi Line and CalMag

Light Schedule: 24 hours on until flip/ 24 hours on for the entire life of the Autos. Aiming to hit 35-45 DLI for most of the grow. Higher in Flower. 

Looking forward to sharing this journey and hopefully learning a lot!

Last round I screwed up germination so terribly… I lost many really great seeds and felt like an idiot.

This round I’ve settled on the following method:

- seeds into water for 12-24 hours

- seeds then directly into a jiffy pellet that’s been soaking in water.

- place those pellets under a dome on top of a heating pad.

Right now I’m looking at 

3 successful Thundersnow sprouts

4 Apple Candies

2 Purple Punch

2 Forgotten Cookies. 

planning to run them and see how they develop, pick winners and move those into permanent homes when my tents open up a bit…

here is a quick update, and a reminder that starting from seed is a crap shoot… 


At this point I’ve only provided a tiny bit more water, maybe a 2-3 oz with a splash of calmag, and a tiny bit of Veg Fertilizer. My PPM was within the 400-500 range for the mixture, PH’d to 5.8. 

I’m going to be growing these in solo cups for a little while. I want to identify the strongest growing plants and then only grow 3-4 of these ladies. Hoping to find a few that really stand out…

Transplant and training day… 


my plan right now is to keep 6 plants. 

2 purple punch

2 thunder snow

2 apple candies


I’m also starting out 2 autos that will be in another tent to finish. 

the plants are all looking a little droopy post training, but they’ll recover quick and start getting exciting.

Training continued. 

I bent the girls over today to get the manifolds in place. I’ll be topping them and removing nodes later on/ tomorrow. 

they’ve all recovered well from the initial training that I did. 

this tent is going to 100% turn into a jungle. Trying to run 6 in a 5x5 is always cramped. 

I’ve got about 1-2 more weeks of growth on some autos that are finishing up, and once they do I’ll flip the entire tent to 12/12


exciting times!!

Starting to recover from their manifold training. I see a few leaf issues, but have dialed in my nutes a little better for the stage they’re at, so hoping to get some solid growth, and I may flip them soon. I didn’t think I’d get 6 plants to grow, and the last 6 plant grow I did in a 5x5 was really difficult during flower, so I may want to keep them smaller by flipping them sooner. 

Luckily my autos are finishing up and may be in the dry tent within a week or so - which means I can get the party started in the 5x5

So I messed up my timing… I was expecting to have an open 3x3 tent, but I’m probably 2-3 weeks away from that. And the new grow is going bonkers. 

they’re all spread out to their final spots in the tent. I am likely going to throw some supports in each bucket to hold up branches that get fat and heavy. 

because of my screw up in timing I decided to remove a ton of lower growth today. I am going to feed them lightly for the next week and hope that I’m closer to an open tent than I currently think.

I’m going to really try to focus on top growth almost exclusively with these photos. Im tired of trimming larf, and with home grown you’ve got enough bud to run hash with that! 

also in the photo - 2 forgotten cookies auto’s that need to go into another tent, 3 Pinot noir autos that will be following their sisters!

bonus shots of Thunder snow and Apple candies - which are around 55 days post flip.  I’m growing 2 of each of these in the current grow!

Went away for a week and they… jumped a bit.


I'm going to run out of tent for sure. Flipping tonight.

Sometimes in life, when you stand too tall, you get smacked down!

Hey all hoping for some advice! 

these two are looking off. They almost look over and under watered, locked out and underfed… I’m confused. They’re getting the same nutes as the other plants in the same stage of flower, but they just aren’t responding. 

I’ve recently upgraded my PH pen and have corrected a PH issue that I was causing. I also keep my EC within the proper range in my feedings as well.

And post a few nice big feedings that were within the right PH and EC levels and the girls are looking perky again. 

Also - preflower before 14 days post flip!!
