    Finally growing again

    Right!
    In the picture are six of the strains you see in my grow information. Plus two 'marigolds' that are a new strain in the 'marigold' industry. The others are either tomatoes or basil or a mystery seed a friend gave me. Said it might be leek. You see, growing more than six weed plants is unlegal in CA. And I sure as heck don't want to break any state or federal drug laws, by gumb!
    7 of 8 seeds cracked in water, then paper towel on or about Sep 27. Coco on Oct 1. Poked through the soil on Oct 2. Moving up to 1/2tsp of veg nutes and CalMag per gallon of 6.3ish pH'd water. The one that didn't crack was a Black Domina. The one that made it to coco is the runt. I tried growing Black Domino from MSNL. That was the grow that learned me that FFOF was too hot for seedlings. Maybe I'm not meant to grow this one.
    The coco and nutes are new to me after hemming and hawing about changing my setup. Who changed my mind was our magical, mystical, Mrs. Haze in a grow journal she posted in the 'New Pages and Updates' section on the homepage, in August.
    5 hours a day in sunlight. 21 under a Viparspectra 360 LED. As the days get shorter, and the sun is lower on the horizon, I'm getting more sun, every day. Not a lick in summer.

      Is that a type of leek or marigold? Magic Hawaiian. I like that. Sound's like a Polynesian witch doctor.

      In California you may grow up to 12 immature plants so you're still golden. If I ever go over, I make sure that they're clones. Twenty clones from the same mother are still only one plant. Right? Hope I don't ever have to test that theory.

        That's for medical patients and caregivers. 12 immature and 6 mature to keep a perpetual grow. Regular stoners only get six plants because we're just trying to get stoned.
        I think your stoner twenty-clone logic makes absolute sense. Until a dope plant starts looking like a dope plant, sprouts are basil, tomatoe, leek, and marigold.

        I'm near the TN/NC border and I've never had fried green tomatoes but plenty of people here love that, and fried green tomatoes are on many restaurant menus. Even have a sign out front that advertises them.

      Before I looked at your handle, I knew you had southern influence Smoklahoma . Never been but to a southern restaurant or truck stop where I saw fried green tomatoes on the menu. Them places and my first mother-in-law's house. Green tomatoes need to be red as God genetically engineered! Most folks who ain't been east of El Paso don't know tomatillo from green tomatoe. Do you have a Fry Baby, Fry Mama, or Fry Daddy?

        Isn't a tomatillo a little green corn in a husk? No fry family here. Wife says were getting older need to switch to air. Oh yeah,

        Sort of but not really. It looks like a small, unripe tomato in a husk. Only ever had it in salsa or tomatillo sauce. They look too much like green tomatoes to be appetizing. Same-same with green apples.

      To the left are 'marigolds.' They were planted on or about September 24.
      Then are the G-13, GDP, Zkittlez, and the single Black Domina. I forgot which, but one is or isn't a leek. The mystery seed wasn't looking great so it got gone.
      Started out with a CalMag issue. Got it back to snuff.

      Almost in the saddle crucialbunny . The work that has been going on around the complex was supposed to be over, this week. Every A/C in the place is having new condensation drainage installed and some sort or other pump. Since it would be some gawdafwul work to use the existing drain pipes, new copper pipes are being run on the outside of the building. We are, essentially, a big Faraday cage. We have a steady flow of homeless, nuts-o's, recyclers, transients, and vandals. They're mostly harmless save the odd, worthless punk who tags. I'm giving it mid November before someone has at least attempted to remove the pipes in exchange for a 4-Loco.

      Since the external pipe work was not expected, much of the painting has been put on hold. Every day, now, I don't know if someone is going to come into my apartment or pull a man-lift up to my balcony for pump, pipe, or paint. I've had to leave my plants in my tent for a few days because I was told someone was coming in. I can only get my plants outside if I dab myself into believing I won't get invaded. I'd like to be in 1-gallons within a week. With all this other shite, it's real iffy.

      My foot is in the saddle but I ain't mounted. Can't stand for fear of death to ride a horse, anyhow. Beautiful creatures but I'd rather wrangle an ostrich for a run in the country!

        Jeez Gingerbeard, maybe your scrappers aren't quite as desperate as the ones we have up here in Canada...copper pipes visible to the curious bike rider at 3am is fair game....doesnt matter if there's power lines inside or not....she gone. Hows dabber dealing with being displaced for so long?

        We've been back for a month HG. The two weeks we were gone, Dabber didn't want to be more than 6" away from me. Even slept with me all night. Busy streets with narrow, boulevard sidewalks. At home, you can drive a car down one with enough space to miss pedestrians.
        I want to rip the piping off the building just because it's so damned ugly and screws with my TV reception.

      First time growing in coco. A calmag issue is threatening my plants although I am using full strength calmag. At least, I believe it to be CM. It's nothing I can take a picture of because it is only looming. A funny splotch or two. Started getting a little lightening of the fan tips. You can see the issue in the previously posted picture on the plant on the bottom row, farthest to the right. Growth is as good as you see. pH'ing to about 6.2.
      They got their first foliar spray with recommended foliar spray amounts of nutes and calmag. We'll see how it goes.

      Does coco need more calmag than soil?

        Yes Gingerbeard coco needs more cal mag. The coco actually binds calcium and magnesium so it needs to be saturated with cal mag before use, or buffered. The premix is supposed to be buffered already. If you would use the brick then it should be soaked in water with cal mag at 10ml/gallon and ph'd for several hours. It is a PITA. During feeding I use 5ml/gallon for the first 2 weeks then 2.5ml/gallon thereafter until flush.
        Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

          Stupid brain cells must be collapsing. Was in a class with a guy telling how bad drugs are for your body. One thing he said was your synapses get covered in resin and can't synapsicate, or whatever. He got beat down by the class but never backed down because it came from somewhere on the internet. Might have to revisit that one.

            My crystal ball says you were using 1 teaspoonful/gallon. That would be 5ml/gallon or 5ml/3.79L. Imperial units suck. The world should be on the metric system for everything. Funny how one's memory on such things drifts about.

            Out of the blurple and into the light! About tootin' time. The works on the apartments are wrapping up. Only thing left for me is to paint the inside of my door. Which I don't want because I have a different color paint and will paint over whatever they paint. I'll complain more about that in another thread.
            The two fabric pots are the 'marigold' experiment and G-13. The single plastic pot is GDP. The four 1-gallon pots are Black Domina, GDP, G-13, and Zkittlez. The four just got topped and will be the residents of the 3x3x6 and the HLG. The other three are going to spiral and will wind up in my 2x3x4.5 tent with the Viparspectra. Untopped.

              What can I say !! I couldn't resist anymore !! The potency is there, I say this sucker (the hash ) is 3 X stronger than the colas. Thus from stoned to narcotic sensations.
