    Scarlet Grapes STANDALONE...journal?

    Been contemplating this for a few days, so I'm just gonna go ahead and put this in a topic over here.
    No offense to Gingerbeard. I just do not wish to crowd the community forum of his. But I will still be there.
    Though i will frequent over there, the plan is to make more detailed updates here. Resulting in this becoming somewhat of a journal. It's something I've never done before. Let's see how this works. Wish me luck!

    Starting off, for those of you just joining us...
    More information and the beginning of this operation can be found here:
    https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...t-family-album
    For those who are, or will be doing the so generously provided Scarlet family...
    This is where you'll find what I got for ya about the Scarlet Grapes. Produced and provided by Going2fast. Here's some information from the man himself:
    https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...et-grapes-auto
    https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...potency-report
    https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...e-grapilicious
    Though I can't seem to find the actual breeding process. It's probabuly just mixed in with many of his other topics. πŸ˜‹
    Lineage:
    Scarlet Sunset(Gas Reaper)Γ—Double Grape(Mephisto)

    Catching up with 8 Scarlet Grape seeds...
    Soaked in paper towel - 1/25
    All have tails-ish and put into soil - 1/28
    8 girls in the light(some sooner than others) - 1/31
    Gonna call February 1st DAY 1

    Quick recap of the last 17 days...
    After the domes were removed they seemed to take off. The ladies are thriving. They were being fed about one cup of plain pH'd water daily around mostly the base. With a couple heavier waterings on the outer perimeter to keep the lower soils moist. On the 9th they were watered heavy with a BTI tea and light Mykos dose. Two days ago I started feeding two cups of plain water daily. Tbh, a couple of the watering inputs were way outta range. Once I watered with 5.8 and once with 7.5, meh. My watering practices are under evaluation, lol.
    I've also started some tough love early with these girls because they are happy and appear quite strong at a young age. This has led me to begin numbering them. It will help us all later. All of these girls will get the LST and be pointed right back at the light within hours. Plant number 4 is already showing sex at day 17! The soonest ever for me. Very impressive actually.

    Fast forward to now...
    DAY 18
    Though the leaves started small and mutated as most autoflowers do, pushing single, two, three, and four fingers; most have achieved seven finger fans by node four.
    The plants are numbered in order of assumed maturity aswell as their training order. As of today plants 1, 3, 5, & 6 are also showing some wispy white lady parts.
    All my water comes in cold at 120ppm or less and is left to off-gas aswell as reach room temperature. This time of year it can have a pH as high as 8.5. All pH adjustments are made organically. Today they were given a generous amount of water with a small amount of molasses. I've been slightly concerned about the bio activity of my lower soils mixture.
    The light intensity has been at 80% for about ten days and the distance has stayed at 28 - 30" from the top of canopy with some heavy training. The temps have been low to mid 70's and my pathetic RH is generally 33% +/- 5. The average leaf temp is 71.5Β° F. For those of you doing the whole VPD thing, yeah, way outta range. Meh, I dont even try. I do with what I got and make it work!

    Up until now, I have been training two at a time one day apart. Today I actually did LST on three and decided to go ahead and top the remaining plant # 8 just above the fourth node. Number eight appeared to be the youngest, but perhaps strongest and most vertical specimen. All the others are either at or showing the sixth node. I know I know...topping autos debate...let's hear the backlash!

    This is where we are and what we got for now. Yes, I can be somewhat long winded on occasion. And yes, I might have bit off more than I can chew. We're all thinking it! Lol.
    πŸ€ͺ
    For the TL;DR crowd - Eight healthy Scarlet Grapes. Day 18.

    Pictures and updates will follow.
    Thanks for participating!

          Looking like happy plants glad your running all Grapes. I'm saving the rest for outdoor runs this summer. Those look healthy mine are slowwww but your setup conditions are far better also. Best wishes with the grow going forward

        #5
        Really SoOrbudgal, you think so? I always thought my conditions were to cold and dry. But I manage.
        In the past I think that these conditions have resulted in slightly slower growth, but apparently not this time around.

        Thanks for the response! πŸ™‚

          I think your right as far as how fast they grow in best conditions with autos. I just gave mine another feeding today last one 3 days ago maybe it helped and i started a fan blowing into the lower half of the tent so hope that helps dry out the pots. I was getting green slime on the bottom of outer pots and they are under elevators. It's alway hard for me with autos during winter not so much photos.

          @SoOrbudgal
          What is your average temp and RH?
          Since the very begining of this grow with my well deep cleaned space, new light, and the new genetics, I have had two fans going.

          One is a 6" clip at a ∠EBD(<- Look I learned something today! https://www.vedantu.com/maths/45-degree-angle), about a foot away blowing across the board and through the drivers. This really helps generate some warm air.
          The other is a standing 12" in the same position as the 6", but from the canopy. This one stalls in the corners, so it helps with the circulation of said warm air. It's been on its highest speed since they could take it.
          Though it's a catch22 for me unless running more variety of equipment. Because raising the temp always lowers the RH. πŸ˜‰

          What's crazy is I've had like six flowering photos here in this same wintery condition, and was scrambling to get a dehumidifier going. I was hitting like 75%! I really underestimated the amount of moistens that dense flower can put in the air, lol.
          Great learning experience right there.

        Less that ten hours later, all perked up. After the dark period. I know your asking yourself, why is the dark period so short? I currently have a houseguest and my space is in the spare bedroom. The lights on time was moved to day hours and reduced to 16. They'll go back to 20/4 when my MIL checks out, lol. This another great advantage for autoflower plants. πŸ™‚

          Ok, quick update. Had to check due to curiosity.

          About three hours later numbers five and seven have already flipped back up toward the light.
          I know, no pics no proof! But apparently I forgot to take one, and I'm not hobbling back down the stairs.
          Every girl except # 8 is now showing sex. I did see some center yellowing this morning. But this is assumed wake-up face. I doubt they're thinking of bloom yet. Thoughts?πŸ€”

        Looking good man. If you can get that humidity up they will really take off. You got a fat two weeks before they hit flower. They are just letting you know what's up.

          Hehe, yeah you're probably right.
          The plan at this point is the have then all lay horizontal over the exposed soil or their neighbor.
          Though this can only work for so long!

        Blowdout2269 Right now my humidity is 45% temp. at 75f I have a ocillating stand fan about 6ft from the door of the tent pointed downward at the base of the pots. I had it on for about 4hrs then turned it off, it really cools the tent down. It's 68 in my house. First thing i do is start coffee and check the tent and it's without light except for the warming CFL with reflector and temp gauge says between 60-65 f and 70+% Humidity. All mine are in flower now but grape is not as " fast " as the others with blooming but my soil an conditions aren't the best. I had recycled my old indoor pots and added fresh bags of worm castings along with some potting soil left over. They just don't seem happy as they could be. I'm not throwing nothing unusual at them not overwatering or feeding but boy for 3gal pots this soil stays wet longer it seems. Not liking the slime growth on these pots. Sorry for the windy post.

          I think all my fans run 24/7 atm.
          Oh, and I also have a 12" stationary fan in the opposing corner of the entire room. It sits high and points upward at the centrals vent. There's quit a bit of air movement. Almost negative pressure entering the room I think.
          You made me think of something.
          Essentially I could use fans less and likely raise the humidity. But eww to stagnant air. That's where critters come from in this old house.
          Funny you say that about SG.
          And yeah, funny you say that about the soil and watering. I think I'm having the opposite problem in 5gal.
          Slime growth? On yours or mine? Lmao
          We'll talk about soils soon

          Yes i have stagnant air without the fan going even with all the vents open floor and port holes. I leave the zip door partial open during all times. I just felt bottom of my fabric where they sit on the elevators cold as heck an slimey, i'm always shifting them around the tent. Before light just came on the humidity was 60% temp was 63f my curley CFL should be replaced with my chicken heat lamp LOL

            Ok, here's # 8. I definitely slowed her down by the very least a few days. Time will tell.
