    ~~~~

    "The Big Dirty"

    Growing Medium: Half Fox Farm Ocean Forest soil and half Coco Coir

    Grow Lights:
    • x3 Sun System LEC315
    • x2 Viparspectra LED1200
    Clones cut mid December, flipped to flowering on 4/28/17. Harvest on 7/3/17.

    Total weight harvested 1.88 lbs (+couple oz tested/passed around).


    Harvest Video on Youtube: https://youtu.be/rbAFAe-jfNo

    Same set up as previous, see signature for the hardware.
    The girls. The Big Dirty. Dispensary bag seed found last fall(top shelf strain), seed germinates, it's a girl! Got couple oz off this one, great smoke, hybrid I'd think on the indica side, smells range from lemony to dirt, high is deep and creeping, awaiting experts opinions...Genetics unknown, local breeder gone awol or has both thumbs missing. Closest relative found is Dirty Girl.
    Clones cut mid December, 9 Big Dirty vegged under t5s. Flip happening on 4/21.
    The scrog. Revamped a bit. I replaced the string (not rigid enough) with some solid green chicken wire, way more sturdy with the span I have. The lights are spaced evenly and at 24" above for now.
    Fogger. The nasty kind, used it last night in the emptied out flower room, nothing alive should remain in there. Once the plants are in I'll fog the room again but with a pyrethrin fogger this time. Beuhbye thrips!
    Floor. It is now fully sealed from the gravel floor.
    Walls. I covered the Mylar with solid shiny insulation panels, dunno if it will be as effective but painted white plywood wasn't in the budget this time.
    Defoliation, we know, I know, it works, if the timing is right. That's my focus this grow, better timing of pruning. Reading Green75 threads and Nebulas tutorials over and over, comparing, thinking, planning...
    Other goals. No more procrastinating on pest control. No more tweaking timers and whatnot while high. No more impatient harvest. No more uneven height on canopy. These caused my skimpy airy sour diesel yield. No more. Battle mode is on. Other than these, my main obstacle on this grow will be heat management as it gets warmer outside the shed. Saving for an ac.
    Alright, another full day in! Eight girls are under the scrog now, there's an extra one in reserve to fill in if needed around stretch time, unless dingus is in the area then we'll just smoke it on top of mt hood. I digress. They got fed right after that. They'll get a couple days adjusting to the new quarters then a round of pre flip defoliation.
    Thanks for stopping by!

        1st round of major defoliation tonight, I'll flip them in a week or so. I will now hand over my pruners to my wife as to not get overzealous again before it's time for the 2nd round.

            Tika Green75 thanks you 2!!!
            yeah it feels good to have a solid plan in mind and a clean orderly space! Decided this week end that no matter what in between grows I'll take a week to rehabilitate the room before bringing in the next batch of flowerers. Clean slate every time.

                Hello GWE!
                So I have decided to focus my journaling on the main actors of this "operation" which are the Scrog and the big dirties. The others might be special guests from time to time. I will also be succinct and refrain from cheeky comments and cheesy humor, keeping it down to business might help in my original goal to share my mistakes and insights with others so that we can all learn.

                Tonight I fed them full nutes. Gave them a round of mosquito bits for gnats prevention. Thrips seem mia still.
                There are now 10 big dirty girls and one ATF. 8 under the scrog and 3 that I stuck at the end of the net between the wall and the Scrog, in front of the T5 panel (4 red, 3 blue, 1 busted).
                Tonight I also went around the whole Scrog and tucked everything to get a uniform height of about 3 inches max above the net for now. The colas are averaging 3 or 4 nodes only so this grow I'll wait to flip till more...

                On Friday I had to raise the lights quite a bit as I was getting some burning. I think I lowered them down 1" too fast at the time, no further damage on the new leaves so I think I'm OK. Everything else is going along well. Temps goals are from now on 77 degrees day and night and 45%rh till flip.
                The big dirties are in their 10 gallon grow bags, sitting on top of drip trays and saucers. There is about 35" between ground and Scrog which leaves me plenty to do my army crawl and the on-my-back-pruning sessions. The 2 HEPA filters allow me to sleep much better at night since spring started, worth every penny.
                Lights are off between 2PM and 8PM. Once I flip it'll be off from 8am to 8pm. One a/c added later on and I'll be fine.

                Our featured guest tonight is Dutch Delight, I'm having a blast building my first not-even-close manifold-ish. She's taken the staking and pruning like a champ. I keep on stretching her out, 16 colas, (heavy yielder supposedly), except for the 4 colas closer to the center going straight up.

                Comments and advice are welcome as always.

                Happy growing and thanks for stopping by.

                Thanks you 3 for the good vibes, they were much needed today, it's been a tough 2 weeks in me nuggen...
                tika, the version by the stones is still my favorite, I love that tune! And i love hanging under the scrog, feels like a much needed tropical forest...
                well green, what can I say, just when I thought I was in the cool club, I'm still a simple tree topper!!! Will look into manifolding a little closer, thanks man for the clarification.

                  Getta room, you two. Just kidding, but I think I learn the most these little exchanges that just kinda happen at the drop of a hat.

                  Open invitation: if you guys catch me saying stuff incorrectly, please feel free to correct me. If you can tell I'm being ignorant, and not just indulging my dorkiness, I love to be educated.
