    WeLL! Here we go again. New Journal and it pretty much looks the same as the last one at this time. Again doing Word docx for the hard copy then pasting here.

    INDOOR
    Flower environment:
    5 x 9 x 6’ 11” Gorilla Grow Tent (not using extension)
    4-P600 Platinum LED Grow Lights
    Carbon filter/ scrubber
    6” – 435 cfm Dura fan (out take / exhaust)
    Dura fan 4” input fresh air
    VEG environment : separate from tent
    4 2’ (4 bulb) T5 florescent-good for 8 5 gal pots
    Medium:
    Cyco Platinum Series Coco Coir, Vigoro Perlite
    Approx. 3 coco to 1 perlite
    Germination: seed into moist Rapid Rooter or Root Riot plugs, into plug tray, into tray for tray with dome upon heating pad. Grow seedlings in 5” plastic pots for 3 weeks.
    5 Gal Smart Pots : final
    Methods: Topping, LST, Defoliation ,hand feed
    NUTRIENTS : GH Flora Trio, CaliMag, Terpinator (drain to waste)
    Preparation: rinsing coco coir Platinum / Perlite with plain pHd water 6.0-6.1 input and out put. Will let it dry til just moist for rapid rooter with germinated seed-root showing at the bottom of rooter.
    Strains of the following seeds: (Fem) Gold leaf x 3, Jock horror x 2, Northern lights x 3 (photos from seed)
    pH tool: Blue Lab pH pen
    Prep: Mix coco and perlite outdoors, in large CLEAN bucket, load germ pots with mix, and bring indoors. Always have a little left over “ for transplant to top off .

    4/11 Seed drop in rapid rooters under dome on heat mat
    4/13 – 14 Put rooters into 5x5” plastic pots
    4/24/2017 14 day seedlings
    Will pick 8 from the 14
    5/1/2017 Transplant (17 days old) 8 plants into 5 gal Smart Pots
    5/7/2017 had plucked one-chose a back up GL, topped a few
    5/14/2017
    All are doing well. On week 3 of feed chart and will stay there til going into flower. I did remove after this photograph the larger fan leaves-again big fans, and older lower initial leaves. Will top again shortly I hope.
    A stupid note: I dismissed one of the back-up plants and dropped her into my can under the sink. Today I went to throw some more green in and there she was-making me feel like a total asshole- she was still growing.

    5/21/2017 Day 41 from dropping seed (day 37 from sprout).
    Time to LST but will wait a few days. Right now just enjoying watching them grow. Several have been topped twice & minor defoliation of large fan leaves. Still have 2 in 5x5” black plastic pots.
    On week 3 of feed chart and will be there til transition. All pots are taking 2 gal of feed (1x a week) to get the run off.
    Remarkable how time flies by-feels like I just got them going.
    Ordered: trying Seedsman again for the next round offering up enough time for screw ups; Fem, photo-
    Afghan kush, Gorilla cookies and Blue Cheese..just incase J . Waiting for Ghost train haze to come into stock.
    And here we go: didn't put in the environment since it can be seen in the other journals.
