Caramel Candy Kush | KO Kush x Chocolate Rain | Some clones
Posted by - 53 minutes ago -Before we get started, here is some pron from Chuky's Bride my last run of clones.
Such a beautiful flower, don;t think I can ever thank Esc0b@r enough for bringing us this....
Anyways, onto the new grow.
Cabinet - overall cabinet height 42” x 34"w x 24" l, with grow space of around 18-24” between light and top of res.
Hydroponics, “superponic” arrangement, DWC, with some drip and airstones in the res. 12 site
SCROG net for stretch management.
400W digital ballast with a Red UFO LED for supplemental that cycles in 2 hour on/off cycles during flower light phase
Chucky’s Bride – 2 phenos + a Male
(3) Caramel Candy Kush
(1) KO Kush F4 M x Chocolate Rain (pheno b.) - (still trying to decide what I would call it - thinking Fists of fury (raining KO) | KORain) hoping this is carried some of indica of the KO and can make it a KO leaner, wife finds the KO to be great for pain, and I like the rush from the rain, time will tell)
Planning to do some breeding this round with the water droplet technique I read about here.
Water rests for at least 24 hours with airstones applies, comes out of the tap with (avg: ec: 0.2 / 0.1ppt / 6.68 – 7.1 ph), I add some ph down to get me in the 5.6 – 6.0 range.
Jungle Juice (bloom / micro) – 1st try at running lucas
Cal Mag Plus
Snow Storm Ultra
Veg Reviews on growth, welcome input from anyone that has had these as to phenotypes:
CCK1- Plant is bushy and in veg seems to have more sativa influence when compared with others. Has pleasant odor, cannot put a name to the smell, not skunky, fruity/woody. Female verified, so she will be kept. Topped at 5node and bushed out wildly. Taking over left hand front side of chamber. I believe this to be a Ms. Univ leaning due to bushiness and leaf structure
CCK2 – Plant was not developed as long in system, as I had to make room for it. So this one is a bit smaller, but has strong tendencies that look very similar to plant 1 in structure and growth pattern. Aroma is similar to CCK1. Topped at 4th node. Verified Male. I believe this to be a Ms. Univ leaning due to bushiness and leaf structure.
CCK3 – Plant grew out exact same time as CCK1 but was smaller in size, but not stature. Same amount of nodes, just grew much closer together. Plant is significantly more compact with very tight internode spacing on branches, even after topped. Leaves on this plant are the most broad when compared with other two CCK. I believe it is Bubba leaning, due to more compact stature of plant and broader leaves compared with others. Not realizing same stretch as CCK1. Also a Female!
2 out of 3 CCK female, great ratio and I couldn’t have planned that any better. - Anyone that knows these plants/phenos, please share as I am going purely on guess from reading other journals and such.
KOK/CR –Cross of a KO Kush F4 M x Chocolate Rain F (Pheno was my heavy crystal plant, had hook leaves and more sativa finger style). Veg - Plant has leaves that lean to KO Kush dominance and are much broader than the original CR mother. During early growth grew like KO Kush, however, once topped, this plant took on more CR characteristics with significant off shoots and lots of growth, becoming the bushiest of all the seedlings. Verified Female!
3 out of 4 beans popped are female
I have already started this grow, and will add a few submissions to catch you up to where I am currently, starting second week of bloom. Anyone with notes on CCK to share, please pass them along as I am learning these beans still, beautiful structure on both pheno I have and some different aroma between both, very exited to see what she does.
On with the show....
How long does it take for the Flowering Hormones to show and produce Trichomes
Posted by - Today, 09:28 PM -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.
Indicans new mix
Posted by - Today, 08:50 PM -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. Heres what are bein popped...Esko's blueberry #2 pheno, 8 Herijuana x Double Koosh, 4 Double Koosh f2s, 4 Kronicaine, 3Anasthesia, 2 Sugar Punch, 3 Selene. Theres gonna be some winners fer sure! Oh, if anyone needs a roommate in Colorado let me know! I have a job there I just need a place to sleep, grow, and of course I have a beautiful Labrador, best stoner dog ever...alright...game on!
Posted by - Today, 08:21 PM -Hey everyone,
Time to just start a new Grow report, figured I would just make one big one that will just keep going not to have a new topic every time I start something new.
So now I have a decicated veg tent and a flower tent this should be more interesting.
Right now there are some of the Silverfields x Boucida seeds that have been popped. As stated before I am not sure which was pollinated by which male so these seeds I am going to affectionately refer to as " Maury Povich". If you have ever seen the show you will understand the name.
The temps have been pretty damn cold here so they aren't doing great but they are going. Temps with lights are haven't been above 59 F for their entire life. Hopefully this cold front will move out soon and allow them to grow a bit.
Whole tent 2x2x4 feet
The youngest ones
The older ones, they have been in dirt for the last month maybe a bit more
Then in the flower tent we have some seeds that were given too me by a friend...
Strain hunters line 2 Damnesia and 2 Moneymaker. Both are Fems.
In a 4x4 tent with 600 HPS
Temps at night have been down in the low 50's so they are kinda getting stunted for sure but nothing I can really do about
Sorry for the HPS lighting, really need to find a preset on LR to fix that.
Questions/ Comments/ randomness is more than welcome.
Western Hemisphere Grow
Posted by - Today, 08:14 PM -After growing Sannie's Shop selections for the past five grows, this next one (seeds are soaking) is the work of Dynasty (Pineapple Fields - not sold in Sannies Shop for some reason, maybe too pricey), Jordan of the Islands (Blue Hawaiian), Peak Seeds (Northern Skunk) and Indican (double koosh x Herijuana).
Blue Hawaiian and Pineapple Fields should be high flying sativa doms. Northern Skunk is a hybrid, and DK x Heri is part of Indicans plan for world Heri domination. This could be a long flower period for the BH. JOTI only says "65 days+" for flower time, and then they go on to almost apologize for the long flower time. Since it seems Canadian breeders are allergic to reporting flowering times greater than 9 weeks, it probably took a lot for them to spit out 65+ days. I'm guessing more like 80 - 90, but I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. A good sativa with a decent yield is worth 13 weeks to me, but an 11 or 12 weeker sure would be nicer.
A pack of God Bud is racing its way to me right now. Esko's thread about it got me interested. Depending on when it gets here, a couple of those might end up in the crowded room, too. If not, it will wait until next fall.
Since a couple of these are strains that no one has reported on here yet, I'll try and do an actual JOB of this grow report. I can't promise a GOOD JOB, but you can count on it being at least kinda mediocre. In other words, an improvement over my previous work. The pics will still suck, don't get me wrong. Miracles will not happen.
