I have a full 4x4 tent that is in various stages of flower, and this next run is on a tight schedule. Currently starting 2 black jack autos from sweet seeds and one barneys farm purple punch. The current plan is 5 gal dwc under spider farmer 1000s and using canna aqua nutes. Seeds soaked 8 hours and in a paper towel. Excited for this grow.

I have come to the conclusion that I need to spend more time on germination. I keep cooking seeds into mush. I have changed from the paper towel method to just going from a soak to a jiffy pellet that is not fully saturated. I have had to redo each of these and have just moved the buckets into the tent. Still using Canna nutrients and Botanicare cal mag

My my I’ve had a busy week. Sorry for not updating. Both plants had a slow start then took off like crazy. Both are starting to develop a root mass so I expect them to pick up speed. So far loving DWC with the exception of both my ec meter and ph meter crashed and burned so I’m using my old school litmus paper and ph drops until my warranty replacements show up. Tent is at a pretty constant 75 degrees and 55% humidity. I picked up another Viparspectra P1500 using the coco for cannabis code so cheers gang! I think I like it more than the spider farmers currently.

Here’s my quick update. Both plants took off and both are starting to show preflowers and stretching. I had to bump up the nutes twice in a week, and they are drinking like crazy. I wasn’t ready for them to take off so fast so my tent is now a bulging solar system. I have a great white shark and a Girl Scout cookies who just keep waiting to finish.

These ladies are cranking but I keep doing everything in my power to kill them. I was doing some lay on the Black Jack and managed to snap the top of it off as it was starting to flower. It seems to have recovered but I will definitely get less yield. I have been starting to learn about trying to reduce larf and tons of undeveloped buds. I have been nervously pushing to see how much cleaning up the undergrowth that I can get away with. Here’s a couple of quick snaps including a Shishito pepper plant just for fun.  I’m really starting to dial in these Canna Aqua nutes. Very ph stable if I do my part.

Well, missed some grow journaling. Life has been busy. Took a well deserved vacation and had no growmies available to help out so I cobbled together a large DWC reservoir with an auto fill. Currently the plants are on the 9th day without me checking on them. Hoping good karma is in my future. A few pics of the set up

Well that went better than expected. Both plants survived, drinking about 20 gallons over 11 days. The only thing that went out of wack was they were flowering and the ph dropped way to low and I had to run some light nutrients at 5.8 to cure the mild lockout for a few days. Both plants are looking great. The Black Jack stretched like crazy and I can tell it is going to take a few weeks longer than the purple punch. I’m still using Canna nutrients

Amazingly, other than taking a few weeks longer than I hoped, these plants turned out great. Unfortunately my documenting skills are lacking due to being incredibly busy in my real life. I should start trimming buds tomorrow or the next day. The Black Jack was fully harvested August 2nd 99ish days and so far is knocking my socks off. The Purple punch was cut July 31st 99 days. I did a combination of wet and dry trim since I only grow for myself and I’m seeing what works best for me.
