    Tika's Fabulous Indoor LED Grow Journal (Jan-May, 2017)




    This is my 3rd led grow. I think 10th over all.
    Beginning with: rinsing Platinum Cyco coco coir & Vigoro perlite mix ( 1 part perlite to 3 parts Cyco coco coir) in 5x5" pots that have been pre-prepared/ mixed & rinsed for the incoming Rapid Rooter with germinated seed. Water pHed to 6 -6.1 input and out put the same. Now they will dry a bit and will be ready for the germinated seeds-slightly moist so I don't have to worry about watering yet. (this is a new test/procedure for me and i am pretty sure it will work.)
    Still deciding on what to germ: Blue dream for sure, Girl scout cookies x White widow for sure. STILL waiting for BC God bud from Seedsman..ongoing hassel
    there ya are.
    I can spoke feed with can in right hand and thumb index finger pinch fan leaves with the left..'cause I'm a girllll.
    I will hope that newbie coco coir growers will pay attention should it apply to them.
    Love my BlueLab! 5x5 pot 1 to 3 mix runoff 12 5x5s input and run off good How I water /feed since day ! 2014
Spoke water slowly, drain to waste

      Hey Tika,im looking to change the wilma due to my growing style (Not that i figured i have a specific one yet) and i've kinda kept away from coco because i don't know much about it,i was thinking of using their Canna Terra Pro soil mix (as it is!?) and fabric pots for my next plants,i don't know what i want to ask directly,i think this thread will give me answers as you progress into your grow!!I've been using this feeding guide from them!

      Hello Tika_ looks like you're using about the same setup, grow medium, schedule etc. Just planted 8 germinated seeds this afternoon. I like the variety I get from planting different strains, the extra planning and tending is worth the effort to me. Have a great grow!
      The germination I just did was weird though...all the seeds germinated within 36 hrs, except the white widow and skunky monkey. let them go another week and they still haven't done anything, and that three seeds each strain!

    Looks like you know what you are doing....Have a good grow......Best.....

      As soon as one changes out of the comfort zone they are..uncomfortable. New nutrients so all bets are off. Happy to have your company

    I'm paying particular attention to your coco-coir grow. I might be heading down that path next grow. Kind of tired of fighting bugs.

      I think it is a little of both. I bring them in the dog brings them in. I've also had them in soil. I have been pretty lucky in getting rid of them. But I just as soon prevent them if I can. But it will be a change from the norm and that is tuff.

      kingfish i live in an area that has mad scorpions...like my friends all wait for "the next good scorpion story". this year's winner was i opened my eyes on xmas eve a.m. to stare one directly in the face on the pillow opposite me. holy shit i was outta there so freakin' fast...WHAT. anyhoo, many hours of intense scorpion research yielded many "solutions" the only one of which that worked was diatomaceous earth.

      i "spritzed" it in every single crack, in the baseboards, around the foundation, etc. haven't seen one since. so when i undertook to grow and set up ye olde growroom in an unused closet a put that ish liberally around the floor hard up on the walls. since then i've read in various grow weed literature that you can sprinkle it on the top of the soil to get rid of bugs. it's completely safe for both humans and pets too. in fact most of it is food-grade.

      Think of them as "The Siberian Express" for bringing in bugs.
      PS. I like dogs more then some people.

    I'll be paying attention. I went the LED route also when I geared up to start my grow. I got a couple buddies who swear by MH/HPS that tried to talk me out of LED. And since I ignored them they're using me as their guinea pig to see how I do with the no name, made in China, found them on craigslist LED's I got. So far I have no complaints. I'm also curious about the coco, especially the part where i dont have to go buy big jugs of nutrients. And I'll have my journal up later tonight or tomorrow also for everyone to see how this rookie is making out.

      Coco does not mean you don't use nutrients...you do use them. But for indoor growing you lessen concerns of over watering, root problems ( if you use smart pots), and in my very very humble opinion...a cleaner grow.
      Looking forward to your journal!! You can check my first one in led grow 2 grows back

    Are you going to post the whole grow through this thread or use multiple threads like some other people every time they post an update which makes it hard to keep track over the course of a whole grow?

      I meant are you going to post regarding your whole next grow in just this thread so we can subscribe to it?
      I see some people create a thread about a grow then when they do an update instead of just updating the original thread they post the update as a completely new thread which makes it hard if someone wants to follow a whole grow or if someone wants to look back at an earlier part of the grow.

        It's the way you give us your plot and the way you talk about what you doing that makes even rinsing worth paying attention to! (I had forgotten all about rinsing medium before planting,thanks )
