    4th Grow

    After a few months off enjoying the buds from my last harvest, it’s time to start my 4th grow. I’ve only ever grown 2 strains as I’ve been living off my bud seed for the past 3 grows so I’m buzzed to grow all new beans! Consistently harvested over a pound last 3 grows so I’m hoping these strains also like my set up as much.

    5 plants this grow: Gorilla Zkittles, Mimosa Orange Punch, Blue sunset sherbet, pineapple chunk and stardawg. All are from barneys except dawg, can’t remember the breeder of these as I’ve had them a while.

    Growing in a coco/perlite mix. Using a cheap led for seedling and early veg stage in my veg tent. Will be under variable hps once transplanted.

      Hey MagicMike66 good to see you back in the grow! I have a little more than 2 months before I can drop a seed due to climate here. My very first harvest (6/1/21) was relaxing sleep med at best. Already know why and will correct. I'm thinking I can do an auto grow with photo seedling ready at harvest and repeat. I'd really like to build a decent stash for oil and hash. Maybe like Farmbuck I will try for some of that old 70's hash! Sorry for dreaming on your thread, lol!

      Started 9/9/21: 2nd grow: Hawaii Sativa MAUI auto x 3
      Finished Grow: Critical Mass photo - fem x 3 plus 1 clone same
      Medium: FF Coco Loco plus 30% Perlite in 5 gal cloth bags
      Space: 30x48x62 DIY cabinet lined w/space blankets
      Lighting: Bloomspect SS1000 Quantum board x 3 - 300 watts actual draw total
      Soil Supplements: Worm Castings, Guano, Crab Shell, Oyster Shell, Neem and Karanja Meal, Volcanic Basalt Dust (for minerals), Recharge root micros, ACV for organic pH down as my filtered tap water runs over 7.5 pH
      Ventilation: Vipospar 4" Exhaust Fan w/RH controller, 12" Carbon Scrubber
      Reptile Humidifier/Fogger w/same RH controller, bottom intake fan, 6" heater
      Cabinet on screen porch. N AZ @ 4000 ft.

        Good for you sir TOKABIGONE !! Same here I'll wait for fall before I do another grow. I may even throw a few Red Lebanese beans for Hash, not the most potent compare to today's strains but hey I like the aroma and the taste of the old 70's.

      Big tent’s been cleaned out and seedlings have been transplanted into their final pots (3gal fabric). Light switched to hps and set at 250w for now. If you zoom in you can just about see the plants 😂

        I certainly will be overindulging on them in about 6 months time 😋

      I’ve never really paid attention to the night time temps when I grow so this grow I’ve also added a day/night thermometer so I can monitor how it is.

        Time for an update. I always find this the boring part of the grow where nothing really happens. Everything seems fine and growing well. Fed yesterday at half strength - only 1ltr of water per plant so not to soak the roots whilst they’re still bedding in. Couple more weeks and these will all be topped and start training them into the shape I want them to be

          Nothing really set in stone, just gonna leave them and see how they go. I usually go for about 4 weeks veg but this time I think I’ll leave them a bit longer to open up the middle of the plants and get more light down inside.

        Since feeding I’m starting to see some nice growth now. Took off a few huge fans today. Missed the smell of a fresh plant. Another couple of days and they’ll all be topped. Light has been increased to 400w as well

          Few days since topping. I’ve got at least one fim (dawg). All responding well to training. Now it’s daily checks and tweaks to shape them before flipping in 2-3 weeks time

            Plants starting to fill out now. Just waiting for a couple of the smaller ones to catch up then it’ll be flipping time soon. I thought I’d lost a top off the Mimosa Orange Punch but she’s repaired herself and seems to be starting to grow again. I almost gave up on it and pinched it off yesterday, glad I didn’t!

              Do you not worry about the plants' leaves touching each other? I feel like I baby my plants too much, I only do a couple at a time so they dont ever touch- but I would like to do more. I have a 4x4 tent, but only 2 plants in 3gal pots

              Tbh not even once have I thought of that. Long as you give them plenty of good airflow you shouldn’t have any probs. I’ve done a small amount of defoliation by just removing huge fans at this stage. I found last grow that too much during veg can stunt them a bit so I tend to just leave them alone. Before I flip them they’ll get a heavy defol ready for flower

            Before and after defoliation before flipping to 12/12. Wanted to leave the pineapple chunk a bit longer to catch up but the others are getting too big. Hoping for just nice tops on these plants with no larf

            Loving these plants. Showing pistols yesterday, just 4 days from flip!! By far the fastest I’ve seen them coming in. Hopefully that’s a sign of a quick harvest 😋

              The stretch has begun and first sign of little budlets forming today. Training has paid off as they’ve filled the tent nicely.
