4 x Candy Kush 2 x Madscientist-Jackberry 400 watt HPS
Posted by - 15 minutes ago -Good evening,
Last grow I had Silverfields this is a sativa haze. So this time I will chose the other side of the spectrum. Candy Kush is bred by Eskobar and bought on sanniesshop.
About the setup
I will be using a Hanna Gro'Check for the pH (not needed with the bio nutrients I use, later about that more) and EC. To measure the moistness of the substrate I will be using a Blumat Tensio meter. I will hold on to the 80-150 mBar displayed on the blumat tensio.
The nutrients and substrate I will use:
This is the full nutrient pack of BioBizz and the first time I use this brand of nutrients.
Substrate is gold label special mix light. The pots are 18L.
The temperature will be kept on 20 degrees celcius when the HPS is turned of. With the HPS turned on 26 degrees. There is a fluctuation of 1 degrees celcius. So the hottest it will be is around 27 degrees celcius.
Here some picture of a height adjustment to be able to maintain the control over the temperature.
The light on the little heater is already taken care of with some tape. It would be a shame to get hermaphaudits because of the light of the heater....
So I have a problem with dark-winged fungus gnats. This is a link to wikipedia about the little buggers
This is how I will keep them away:
At first I will give them aptus soil attack (bio) with a watering. Then I hang up some glue strips to catch the flies.
I ordered these ones to take down the larves of the flies (they eat the roots).
And when the plants are bigger I will spray the Aptus dislike. To keep the flies away.
Final step is: A little 2 cm layer of fine sand of the top soil layer. To stop the flies laying eggs in top layer of soil.
About the Girls
Here are some pictures. They are just water with 200 ml each. The 200 ml contained 2 ml BioBizz rootjuice and 1.5 ml BioBizz BioHeaven. The EC of the nutrients watering solution was 0.8 ppm.
Any suggestions or questions?
How long does it take for the Flowering Hormones to show and produce Trichomes
Posted by - 21 minutes ago -Any one know how long it takes for the plant to flower (show trichomes and all that) from starting the flowering photoperiod becasue i dont want to waste time, i want to trigger flowering with the most light time possible and then decrease by 15 mins every week because thats how much the segment timer allows, this will replicate the shortening of the days.
The 12-12 formula has been accepted without question by growers all over the world. Probably one of the reasons for this was my discussion of the technique in some of my early books. The 12-12 regimen was selected because my co-author and I reasoned that no matter what critical period a variety might have, given 12 hours of darkness it would flower. However, most marijuana varieties need fewer than 12 hours of darkness to flower.
If marijuana plants grown outdoors required a 12-hour dark period to flower, they would not be induced to start flowering until September 21, the first day of autumn, when day and night are equal length. They would ripen 6-8 weeks later. In real life most modern varieties ripen between early September and late October. Budding was triggered 6-8 weeks earlier. For instance, an eight-week variety that requires 55 days from forcing to maturity, which would normally ripen on October 1st, would start flowering August 1. At that date in San Francisco, sunrise occurs at 5:14 and sunset at 19:18, a total of 14 hours 4 minutes. Dawn and dusk add another 15 minutes of red light. Plants use the absence of this spectrum to measure the dark period. The total lit period came to about 14:20, leaving 9:40 minutes of darkness. The critical period for this plant was 9 hours 40 minutes. If it were given just 10 hours of dark period daily indoors, rather than 12 hours, it would still flower.
Gardeners growing outdoors who discover the critical time needed to induce flowering can use this information to get more efficient use of their indoor garden. Currently, plants grown under a 12/12 cycle spend half their time in the dark. If the plants have a critical flowering time of, for instance, 10 hours of darkness daily, they can be provided 14 rather than 12 hours of light each day so that they receive almost 17% more energy which they use to produce sugars used for more and faster growth.
GP's 1st grow, Kolossus, JackBerry F4 and Chucky's Bride
Posted by - 32 minutes ago -Seeds in the dirt, nothing happened yet. Soaked them in a glass of water overnight. They are now in the propagator, temps are 26C/78F. Hopefully I get at least 1 female.
Wish me luck!
2 x Kolossus reg
1 x Jackberry F4 reg
1 x Chucky's Bride reg
60 x 60 x 160 tent
250 W MH + 250 HPS for bloom time. I might add a bit more wattage later on in the bloom.
Seedlings go under 85 W CFL as soon as they show themselves. Then into tent under MH.
Plangro Roal Mix, coco coir, worm castings, biotabs kit, bio molasses, 7gal / 26 ltr container, small air-pots.
Next time I'll get some other soil, but this was gifted to me...

Indicans new mix
Posted by - 56 minutes ago -Whats up yall!!!?? Im sorta back, getting setup and the T5 is on. Im growin a variety this time. I had 25 rapid rooters put back so i went to the grow store today n bought a tray and dome, some Fox Farms Light Warrior mix and picked some killer strains for my head.
