    Grow Journal Girl Scout Cookies

    Started project on 080518

    Girl Scout Cookies (Purple Panty Dropper X Girl Scout Cookie Bx4)

    Comments are appreciated but until I catch the timeline up will be used as a reference on future grows. All input is appreciated.

    Years ago, I had several successful grows indoor using dirt. I scroged them with a 2-inch removable wire screen. Read completed grows from what forums were available (overgrow) and learned a tremendous amount from the users.

    Stopped growing and using years ago but decided to pick it back up. Knew I had to get good seeds from the get-go, it took me forever to find a seed worth anything when growing in the past. Intro…. Girl Scout cookies, but that’s another story another day.

    Had to design both a veg and flower in a small area approx. 2X4 grow area. First Step, clean and paint. Run new power lines with each side on its on breaker. Needed to bring fresh air in from under shop and then back out. Design with removable bottom tray and space for clones, seeds etc.

      Added and suspended 1000w Led Light (Not sure what I can put here and not advertise) Pretty sure this is over kill for size of space, but if it works well, will enlarge flowering space an addition bay.
      Trimmed sides of tray for easier access sliding in and out. Starting to rethink this, not sure this was my best plan. (Easy to come back and edit in afterthoughts :-))
      Growstar 1000W led Grow Light Optical lens, 12 band Full Spectrum Beg and Bloom. Coming from HPS 400W and never used LED.

        You ain't advertising, by saying what kind of light your using. Nebula loves all the information.

        1000 LED light-does that get very hot mate or make the tent hot? Been thinking about LED`s for a bit. Subbed onto this grow, been tempted by this strain for ages but difficult to get over here at the moment

      Not going to post all the pictures for this, but i planted six bag seed into the AG one sprouted.... Was not confident in my seed starting attempt so left the one that did start and some cloning attemps in until I received the good seed. The big plant in the back got ballsy on me so I cut it down and planted 4 seeds, hoping one would grow. All four sprouted (3 more than I needed, but good to make sure I had a female mother.

        I had never seen it before either, but in the past I rooted with a bubble stone and the adds stated it was used to seed out all sorts of stuff. As far as seed starting, I will have to say its awesome, but I'm rethinking the cloning, may go back to the bubble spare. Im at day 17 on 6 clones, and only one has started roots. It was the one suspended highest of all three from the water line. Tip barely touching, will add pictures showing on this post

        Lesson learned on this, you can tell on both rows the last clone is doing exceptionally well. Even in the non ph adjusted water. I cut all the clones the same length so they would be in the water, but on the back row I scraped along the side, above water line. Used Clonex on all three and along the scrape. As you can see they took the full 14 days to show, but then exploded. All rooted, but by far the back row was best.

      Moved all four seeds to a aftermarket DWC (Think that's the correct term), dripped from top. Have to say they looked awesome after seeding.

        holy sh$t
        I just looked that up - enough back pressure for an 8' deep tank - very nice. I bet the plants are loving that breeze through their roots

        I haven't done anything permanent with my upgrade yet, take it out of the box and look at it. still using 3 pumps across 8 buckets (2 aquarium pumps, but much less than the whisper, and the EcoAir Commercial 1)

        I noticed that oldjarhead100 hangs his pump with a ratchet cable. OJH - how big is that air pump you have hanging in your garden? and how noisy is it? is hanging it an effective muffle?

        Can not believe the bubbles, thinking about changing to just one stone per bucket. I never realized how loud my light fan motors were until I plugged both of these in. And I believe I can just use one per two buckets. And in the big scheme, relatively cheap.
        As far as the old pump, I could handle all the vibration related noise, the filter material solved that issue. But the basic operation of the pump itself is louder than a three year old with an ant bite.

        LOL

        I actually found a thread or maybe a youtube (will find and post) where a guy was explaining why they are so loud from factory (had to be a video) and he walked through opening it up and tightening up all internal. that made more of a difference than putting a pipe on the intake (which was one of the vendor solutions)

      Plants filled the little tub with roots, had to expand (Really have to stay withing the existing space) Built a "Home made bucket" yada, yada utube video kinda thing.
      and separated.
      Advance Nutes at 550 PPM and hoping they keep PH acceptable, getting good measuring equipment to verify AN's guidelines. In the old dirt grows I found less is better until its not. 550 PPM is where I started.

        Everyone seemed to enjoy more room, both took off roots look good (think bring cool air from below is helping keep the tubs cool, Changed to larger pump (Noisy little gripper) but pumps out the air. Attached hose to bring in cooler air, not sure it helps cooling but did help in the noise area.

          Thanks guys, besides being clean as possible in the tubs, and after seeing a little brown adding hydroguard, not sure why they are doing so well.

        Plants were out growing the room I have, moved two into a fresh built flower chamber. I have given up on the tub, good on paper, hell to execute. Have seem several ways to train the plants, so have a new plan. In the mean time have to figure out who is male and female, built a tent on the right side, installed a zipper and separated them. 2X2, still have not figure out what to do with the extra plants.

          Found a boy hiding in my flower closet, escorted him out imediately.... I know how guys are around your daughters, I try to catch them young, before any damage. Everyone is growing well, not going to try to train on this grow, just get a base line.

          Still using AN, but at 750PPM on flower side, still staying around 500PPM for veg. PH has been holding around 6.10 and I complete refresh all nutes weekly. Plants are feeding well based on reading prior to refresh. Veg is around 390, flower is 680 just prior to complete refresh.

            Did not plan on training but plant was just leaping up at the light, not sure if its the type of seed or the light, but seems to be stretching a lot. Veg side is just blowing out of the bucket, roots are still looking good. Noticed a little brown so added 2m hydroguard per gal (12ml)

              Timing on this grow is all screwed up, going to have to convert veg to flower and see if I have any more males in this group. They seem to be doing well, will move PPM to 800 on flower side.

                Buds doing well, grow doing well. Seems to be a lot of stretch, but again may be the trait of this seed. Started process, but not going to enclose per the "Flower side" finished Veg side for flowering also, only using the 270w
                Actually this gives me a opportunity to compare the lights side by side.

                Note: I see through the forums folks trimming all the leaves out from under but not confident I know what to trim. I use the 2 inch wire, because thats what I used in the past, will change in the future, but the wire allows me to slide out in in. The designs I see on this forum are much better, and will change in the future.
                For now just call it old fart screen.

                  Roots looking good, but upped hydroguard to 3ml per gal (18ml total) Starting to trim a little of the underbrush. Seeing some PH issues or possible a phosphorous deficiency, in dirt I would bump up a little, ph is good so not thinking that's the issue.
