    Winter grow journal.

    So I decide to do a little journal this coming winter and beside I'm not going nowhere.... So this week I began to prepare my "grow room". And I'll keep the journal update if I can, and yes with pictures on how the girls are doing. Oh yes, once the girls are grown up they will be my models for my 2021 PlayBud edition .

    Medium : PROMIX organic vegetable and herb mix with perlite.

    Light : Viparspectra P1500 and P2000 Pro series quantum board and King Plus 2000 and 1500 blurple led.

    Strains : Kali China, Kali 47, Mazar Kush, Red Lebanese and auto White Widow. (24 plants)

    Actual grow space: 48 square feet excluding space for vegetables.

    Nutrients. Alaska Fish, Cal-Mag, Ancient Earth , Big Bud and organic molasse.

    Controllers(timer, dehumidifier heater, etc.) to keep the room confortable. Well for me at least

      That's a big grow area and about what I want to set up in the future. Big enough top do 1 grow for the year.
      Subbed and along for the grow. Good luck and happy growing.

      Empty tents got lonely.


        It's a dream of a grow room I look at this area you got and man it's just beautiful. But i get too excited about seeing all these pots LOL i want more than my tent holds in there. I put the breaks on myself really hard not gonna get myself into a cluster grow in my winter tent. Just sticking with my 4 photos i put the 3 auto flower seeds back into bag for future. Nope not gonna get tempted!!

          LOLLLL SoOrbudgal let say I had the blessing of wife, Like I was saying I usually have one grow per year but because of Covid-19 and staying at home I decide to keep myself busy this winter and tried some crazy experimentations.

        I'd subscribe to that magazine!!!
        Have a great grow Amigo- I'm watchin too!


          Wow like very one else already said I’m going to say it myself. I love the grow area I can only grow in my 2x2 and 2x4 tent so I have to grow back to back. It’s not a bad thing cus I love growing but if only I could have 20 plus plants going at once I’d be stoked. I’m subbed and looking forward to the jungle grow you will have.


            Oh did I mentioned the method of growing it's gonna be be SOG and some LST


              After submerging for almost 20 hrs in a glass of distilled water, it was time to put the strains between wet paper towel on a small plate. Room is warm at 24C (75F) the RH is between 55-60 %.

              Just 6 5 gallons pot left to prepare.


                After 24 hrs, tap root are showing in some of the Mazar Kush beans, pics will follow in a few days.

                  I love it when the seeds show their eagerness in getting started - usually come up out of the grow medium just as fast.

                  You are right but there always a bit of nervousness when the other strains are falling a bit behind.

                While waiting I'm making organic nutrient out of banana skin for potassium.

                1. Dry until it's crispy

                2. Grind it into powder.

                3. Store it a a Mason jar.

                And beside wife prefer organic.

                  Farmbuck How do you apply the dry Banana skin powder? For potassium?

                    Cali I use it during the flowering stage. I apply 1 to 2 tablespoons per 4 litres and once a week until I do the flush.

                    For potassium in banana peel I read it aids in the biosynthesis of proteins related to terpenes. So I've been doing it for 3 yrs now. Does it work ? Some claim it does.

                  My Mazar Kush are sprouting real fast... Of one of the four MK you are able to see the taproot growing.


                    Just completed my soil preparation pots. Now I'm waiting for the littles ones to sprout. So far 4 out of 4 of my Mazar Kush are showing their taproot. I believe they will be vigorous girls just like Wonder Woman


                      Very nice Farmbuck. You been busy I see. And by the looks of it your gonna stay busy. 😁

                        Yep PLreef this is my goal since we are staying here in the great white north this winter. Today I'll will try to "climatise" the grow room to a comfortable temp of around 24-26 C with a RH of 55% + for the seedlings. I feel the Mazar Kush will be in their pot soil beds by the end of the week.

                        Thats great news. I went on a cleaning binge in my tent today. Emptied the whole thing, sprayed bleach and water solution everywhere then wiped it all down. Two hours later I did it again... ton of work but I want to make sure I kill all the yuck that might be hiding in there. Lol Gardening is an absolute labor of love.
