NYGC Misfit: Pineapple Express/ Alien Tarantula

Back To Top
Page 1 / 3 Next


Really excited to pop these beans and grow along with everyone in the NYGC. Gonna have 2 of each strain (4 plants) in HP Pro mix, in a 4'x3'x7' grow tent with Remo Nutrients, and fabric pots (either 5 or 7 gal). This is gonna be my 3rd time growing, but my first time growing good quality seeds that I picked myself, that last two times I grew clones from a buddy and some bag seed. 

Good luck to everyone!

Starting a bit late (was at my parents house for last couple weeks) but I got my seeds soaking yesterday as soon as I got home. All the seeds dropped to the bottom of the water bottle when I checked on them in the AM. This morning I put them into a paper towel, on a heating mat @28•C until some tails come out. Then I’ve got some peat pellets ready to go.

I checked on my seeds this morning after 24 hours in the paper towel. The 2 Pineapple Express seeds have small tails coming out, the Alien Tarantula have cracked open and have very tiny tails just starting to come out.

Checked on my seeds again after about 29 hours in the paper towel, the 2 Pineapple Express seeds had half inch tails and the Alien Tarantula seeds still had pretty short tails but had grown some. So I put the Pineapple Express sprouts into peat pellets that I had rehydrated with some warm water. I made half inch holes and then carefully put the sprouts into the pellets with a pair of tweezers. Then I put them into a humidity dome on a heat mat under a gooseneck “HIGROW 50W LED Grow Light White” from Amazon. I also put the Alien Tarantula seeds in the humidity dome back into a ziplock bag in paper towel until the tails get a bit longer. I also put some envelopes over the seeds to help keep them in the dark.

Checked on my Alien Tarantula seeds this AM after about 48 hours in the paper towel, and their tails were long enough to put in the peat pellets. So they have joined their Pineapple Express buddies in the humidity dome. The Pineapple Express sprouts have pushed up out of the peat, one has shed its shell pretty good by its self, but the other one has a bucket head and looks like it might need some help.

Checked on my plants this morning, the Pineapple Express are coming along nicely and are growing their first real leaves. The Alien Tarantula are coming along nicely as well and have started to pop their shells off and push out of the peat.

This AM I transplanted all my girls into solo cups with HP Pro mix. Then I mixed 5mls VeloKelp into 2L tap water @ 420ppms 6.0 ph. Then I gave each plant 80mls. I’m really enjoying The NYGC so far and seeing everyone else’s grow journals.

All 5 plants are coming along pretty good, looks like their second pair of leave are just starting to form. This morning I gave 60 mls to each plant of VeloKelp + Water.

Day 10


Plants are looking pretty good, I had to support a couple of the plants because they were falling over. Gave 120mls VeloKelp + water 400ppm 5.95ph. In about a week, once they get their fourth pair of leaves, I’m gonna move into the bigger tent under a bigger light.

Day 13

Most of the plants are coming along nicely. Alien Tarantula #1 is a bit of a runt and has deformed odd looking leaves. Alien Tarantula #2 has a bit of leaf curling possibly because of my low RH, but not sure as none of the other plants have leaf curling. Alien Tarantula #3 and the two Pineapple Express all look pretty good. This AM I gave 90 mls of mostly tap water + a tiny bit of VeloKelp @ 227ppm and 6.1ph. Two days ago I switched the light schedule from 24/0 to 20/4. I ordered some “Real Growers Recharge” that’s supposed to be here any day and then I’m gonna RECHARGE IT UP! #DGC

Day 16

Transplanted yesterday into bigger pots, then watered about 1.5L of light veg feed @ 1000ppm and 6.1ph between all 5 plants. Today I topped 4/5 plants, I’m gonna leave the runt to grow and catch up with the other plants.

Day 20

I watered veg feed @1000ppm @ 6.1ph 500mls each plant 2 days ago. The plants are recovering from the topping nicely, I also noticed that Alien Tarantula #3 was FIM’ed by accident and has 3 tops growing. Pineapple Express #1 was topped @ node 5 and Pineapple Express #2 was topped @ node 4. I’m just experimenting to see if I like one method better than the other.
