    New set-up new lights

    Hi Growboy, what a great setup! Very clean and very well designed! Just a few questions : about the spectrum, you use the 6500K only for veg and you switch to 3500K when they begin to flower? Do you have dimables drivers for your COBs? it could be very nice to mix 6500K and 3500K at différents currents. 6500K only is not the best for vegetative stage because it lacks of red wavelengths. So for vegging you can use both 6500K and 3500K, with 3500K at 40% power. This way the spectrum will be better, the growth will be faster, and the leaves a little bigger. The 3500K cob spectrum works, but it is lacking of 660nm red. Are they CRI70 or CRI80? I think you have build a really perfect , only the lights can be a bit bettered. My 2 cts greetz

    Hey, thank you for the support guys! good to be here again! the tent today: citra paradiso Chimera at +10 weeks on the back left, front left critical mass, middle in 6L pot hawaian spice, and 2x Z7 + a critical mass one bud waiting for pollen. The newberry female #2 at 3 weeks of 12/12, today i pollinized one branch with the #5 male. Tomorrow i will neutralize male #5 pollen and pollinize another branch with male #1. what surprised me is that this female have no scent on the stems, no odour, but she is already putting out some trichomes, and they have an earthy/flowery smell. The males that are flowering in the small tent, some have strong odor on the stems, especially the #5, it is a red fruit odor. Another one has the same smell but with musk. But this female does not smell when you put your finger on her stems. It does not mean that she will smell nothing on the finishing buds. What i can expect is differents smells on the differents genotypes/phenotypes, and it is great. They show some variations, and it is great, many special thing to find. Critical mass vegging and at the harvest Z7 CBD Hawaian x Sweet skunk The 6 new-newberries, 2 are females, one stretchy sativa girl and one big girl, the biggest plant The stretchy girl, the only newberry that does not make big branches On the left a small indica purpleinzing genotype, and on the left the stretchy sat female before LST. On the left a cutting of the #2 female and on the right the Cheeseberry E$kobar seedling, definitely on the cheese side Greetz!

    Hi Saxo! How are you!? Good to be here! Hi Papalag, Thank you bro I am very excited with this grow. And i just ordered some blueberry Quintessa from Sannie. I will pollinate my old Critical Mass (bag seed from Shantibaba 1998, and the plant is from 2003) with the newberry. I will flower one cutting of Hawaian spice CHIMERA (Kauai electric x Sweet skunk), it is a great pheno with nice taste and nice high. She takes 11/12 weeks under bloom LEDs. I don't think i will have 6 females on the second batch of 6 newberries, so plan B is Hawaian spice, unfortunately it is a feminised, but may be i will try a few seeds, may be she is a true female XX and she will breed. Greetz!

    Blueberry Quintessa CBD

    It seems that some of them will be stretchers! This is a great thread! Keep up the good work. How is the stretch with your BB sativa? Very high? I will do it this year indoor, it could be nice if you could show some pictures of your BBS too. Please forgive me for all these questions! I am a blueberry lover, and a CBD strains grower, and your strains looks very promising.

    Blueberry Quintessa CBD

    thank you Koma, OK i ask that because the structure and nodes spacing is shorter under MH. Do they are still in 18/6?

    I vegged them for 3 weeks, they are in 4L pots (1 gallon). I switched to 11/13 after 3 weeks and topped them at the 6th node. So on the 5 first seeds i had 4 males for one female (the #2). Here is the #1, the biggest male Now the 4 males #1, #3,#4, #5 As soon as they were sexed i removed all the big fan leaves and they go to continue flower in an very small 40x40cm tent, with 80W bloom LED. Here they are at 2 weeks of flowering, they have no feeding, only water. The #1 is on the back left. Here are the 6 seeds from the second batch, they are almost at 20 days of veg now, they all look good and healthy: Many plants are showing some variegations. They all have purple stems. They all want to grow big stems and branches. Here is the only female from the first batch, now at almost 2 weeks in flower: I would like to cross the newberry with the Z7 CBD JGL 2011 cut, i feel it very well. An d after that i will back cross once with Z7. It is a beautiful highly resinous small plant, very fast (7 weeks), CBD:THC 2:1 or may be more. I reveged her, she is will be ready to be gang banged with the NewBerry males in about 2-3 weeks. Greetz!

    Hi! It has been a long time for me without grow journal on Opengrow. I decided to share my DJ Short Newberry grow. Opengrow is a great forum and i miss it. It started 5 weeks ago, with 5 seeds, because i had not enough room at this time. So the plan is to start 5 seeds, wait 2 weeks and start the 6 others. After that i keep everything, cuttings are taken from all the plants, pollen is keeped in the fridge. After that i make an open pollinisation, and other selective pollinisations. I will also cross Newberry males with Z7 high CBD (JGL cut) and my old 2003 Shantibaba's Critical Mass. Unfortunately i had only one female, she is a bit special because she had the first "true leaves" with 5 fingers.

    Autoflowering Gambians

    i had autogambian seeds. I can't grow outside but i gave some beans to friends in west France (Bretagne) and they probably popped them (I hope so!) , with auto columbian (colowryder by JGL) beans too. In next july i will go there and see how they grew, i will take some pictures. I would love to grow those beans myself, i'm so frustrated! greetz Silva

    the scrogs are very well managed, even with teh stretchy SSH, congrats bro! Yes you will harvest tatstier weed with leds, and find some aromas on some strains which you won't find under HPS. The taste is richer under leds. HPS have a huge infra red radiation and it cooks the trichomes a bit. You don't have that with LEDs. Greetz Silav
