  1. Hey folks. After a break of a few months, I'm back. Ran some beautiful seeds of Dinafem's Sweet Deep Grapefruit. Tier 2 in terms of potency, but Tier one in terms of yield and terpenes. Here is the test run: Here were the keepers I found: SDG #5 - Beautiful is not a good enough word, she is a looker for sure. Smells fruity, with a stinky undertone. Dense, very dense, hard ass nugs. Not full indica, but hard for sure. Any harder and my climate would be disapproving. SDG #6 - Yield is the word here. Slight elements of a hazy scent, but largely fruity and sweaty. Massive colas, no jokes. Not as dense as #5 but more potent and makes up in sheer size. SDG #7 - A branchy yielder, one that does great with a veg time of more than 2 weeks, but is not too good for running from clone or with minimal veg. Least potent of the 3, but beautiful in her own right. Mellow smell and taste, Mellow high. (Sorry the pictures don't depict the attributes of the strain) ----- The grow as of now is a pipe based set up. 3 pipes set up in a 2m x 1m fashion, each illuminated by 2 lamps. I've got 3 of these setups. 1 of them has 2 x 600w Philips Master GP hooked up to 2 x lumatek 600w ballasts. The other one has 1 x 600w gavita bulb on a gavita digistar ballast and 1 x 400w eye hortilux on a 400w philips magnetic ballast. I had these two (gavita and hortilux) lying around and didn't want to waste them. The third setup will be lit by the same as the first one (2 x 600w lumatek with philps GP) So, in one of these setups, I had placed 15 seedlings of what I thought was Mr. Nice's Shark Shock, 1 seedling of World Of Seeds Columbian Gold (nothing columbian about it), and 1 seed of Dinafem's Blue Cheese (basically fucking hemp). The 15 seedlings are most definitely not shark shock, they smell hazy, grow hazy and stretch hazy. I bet Shantibaba was hazy when he packed them lol. Not what i was looking for, really wanted to grow a nice indica from MNS this round, but it was not to be. In the other setup, I put in clones of SDG - mainly #7, but also 5 and 6. Some of these clones got more veg than others. The 5 big plants got their own 400w, and all the other rooted clones got a 600w. Sounds confusing, but the picture should clear it up. Shark Shock on the right and SDG on the left. 2 days after this (on march 25th), they were flipped to flowering. On April 19th, the main power line from my flat to the transformer melted. In the process. something went awry with one of the timers in the flowering room. Till yesterday, this timer was running from 5 am to 9 pm. I have no idea how this happened, it's still a mystery to me. Basically, though, on the 3rd/4th week of flowering, my ladies got veg lighting for a week. I realised when I saw what looked like the plants showing signs of going back to veg and not putting on flower mass. Checked the timers and bingo, the devil was found lurking. Now it's back to normal but I don't know what the fuck is going to happen... here they are now, above. See what i mean by the shark shock being hazy? anyone ever had any experience with something like this? veg lighting during flowering? Here's the veg room: clones (left are grapefruit #6 and #5, but I will only be keeping #6 as the mother plant going forward. on the right we have the shark shock, or as I feel I should call them, mystery haze. These clones will be culled as I dont have space or time to grow hazy beasts indoors.) mother plants - a clusterfuck of #5, 6 and 7. any advice or guidance would be welcome. also any suggestions on good single cola strains. could really use some of those. best vibes El Chupa
  2. Hi all! I recently ordered some seeds from Sannie and decided to sign up here and share my grow. I figured no better place than here if I need help pheno hunting or with questions concerning these strains. This is my 3rd grow and my first run from seed. It's been exciting so far. I'm running 2 rooms. 1 is a 4x8 scrog under 2 Fluence Spydr Xplus 650w LEDs in RDWC I built to mimic the undercurrent system. I love the design of these LEDs as they cover my canopy completely. With Co2 they sit 6" from tops without light or heat burn. The 2nd room is a 4x7 under a Gavita E6/750 pushed to 800watts on a light rail in 5 gallon pots of coco. With the mover I've been keeping the light about 1.5-2 feet over the canopy without issue. Also a clone/mother cabinet under florescents. Co2 in both flower rooms in a controlled, sealed environment. The systems: RDWC is 13 gallon buckets fed by 3" pvc lines, 3/4" return line to a 1200 gph pump through a 1/2 HP chiller keeping my nutes at 65-68 degrees throughout the grow. 2 air pumps keep my dissolved oxygen about as high as possible. The coco is in 5 gallon fabric pots. I used DNA coco w cork and added perlite for extra drainage as by the end of flower I will be watering 3 times a day. I may build a drip system, but for now I'm hand watering 5 gallons am/pm twice daily. Drain to waste of course. Nutes: Like I said this is my 3rd grow ever. First grow I ran Canna in coco with some deficiencies, hermies, etc. This was my crash course in coco grow. 2nd grow I ran Nectar for the Gods line in coco for a more organic type of grow. Results were good on both grows, but the 2nd seemed tastier with less yield. The 2nd run I also had deficiencies, but nothing too bad. The Herculean Harvest just seemed to be clogging the coco at the end. Now, on to this grow... I'm running the full line of Cultured Solutions in the RDWC and the Coco following their feeding schedule. In coco I'm running 3/4 strength. In RDWC I'm very low strength. Anytime I exceed 220ppm I see nute burn. I supplement with 1/4-1/2 strength CaliMagic every feeding. In the coco during flower I've been also supplementing with leftover NTFG nutes like Yucca Extract, Athenas Aminas, Bloom Chaos, and their Guano tea. For PH up I generally use Potassium Silicate and for Down I've been using NTFG Hades Down. At the first sign of PK deficiencies I started adding 1/2 strength Beastie Bloomz (0-50-30). I'm in week 4 and haven't had any real deficiency issues. I guess I finally learned how to "listen" to what the plants are telling me and showing me early on. I will most likely stick with this lineup in the future, but won't know until they've cured and been smoked. Environment: 6000BTU window AC unit, 50 pint dehumidifier, 2 vortex fans and carbon filter, and Co2 tank Strains: I'm running Herijuana IBL, Fem Sugar Punch, Fem Madberry That's about it for now. I've gotta get some pics up in the next post

    DIY RDWC

    So a while ago I was reading one of these hydro threads and we were talking about uniseals and bulkheads, as promised I would pass along how I did mine, here is a small log of my system. I ran this this outdoors and with veggies but you can get the point. I have done quite a few hydro systems (Aeroponics, bubble buckets, superponics, NFT) but I never did a RDWC before and boy results are impressive. If you got space, it would definitely be a way to go, IMO. So enough with the talk heres the real. SO get yourself some parts. I used: Uniseals - (So far I am very impressed, Ill let you know how they work in year 2), I went with 1.5” for bottom connections and 1” for the top. I used PVC pipe and also used the rubber Adjustable PVC right angles for assembly and disassemble. I didnt want all the PVC to be glued together. Get yourself some containers, try to find this type of plastic, I tried some others and the harder the plastic the worse it is with the uniseals, I was getting cracking and blowouts, these did the job nicely. We use them for clothes hampers and I had a few with broken handles (great way to repurpose) Get a hole saw and saw do some work Did a test on uniseals before I got too carried away…. Here is the initial design/layout. Here is what I ended up with, added the extra tank and gave myself 12 sites. Got a strong flow through the bottom and major airstones in each along with 3 in the controller. Heres a peek inside, as you can see, lots of bubbles. Some progress shots 3 weeks after planted 6 weeks 8 weeks. it got crazy, around week 8 as that is when I started getting fruit, it continued for about another 6-8 weeks after, this garden ended in Late October, it overtook my structure and pool deck next years plan is to spread out the sites and allow plants more room to breathe, I lose some yard, but could get more I think, time will tell
  4. My last grow was as close to a failure as a successful grow can be. I didn't even bother to measure the yield. The taste of the buds is nice, but the high was far from satisfying, which can be expected when you are forced to cut a sativa leaning hybrid 2-3 weeks early. Could have been worse though. Fortunately, I made some much needed changes, and I think I'm on the right path this time. Sowed 3 Auto Gambians on 3/12. We all know that the Auto Gambians come from one man only, so I don't even think it needs to be mentioned! Started in Rockwool, the infamous 'white hook' showed up at the surface of the rockwool on the 5th, at which point i put them into the 6" net pots. I think they're 6", never bothered to measure them. They were placed in the setup which has space for 3 net pots in a top feed DWC method in a 40L Rubbermaid tub. To the water I added Canna Rhizotonic at ⅛ of the suggested concentration. Set the lights on 20/4. I went out of town and came back in a few days and they were looking like any other seedling. nice and happy. Here they are on the 13th: And on the 15th: Fast forward to 20/12/14 No change in the reservoir at all. Roots are looking nice and white. There is one bigger than the other two; this is purely because the water beneath its roots is receiving an unevenly large share of oxygen. This should all be sorted out when my new air pump arrives and when i move these three to my small trial top feed RDWC setup: This little "elbow" elevation pictured below is to maintain a minimum water level in the buckets: Will test run it in the daytime hours today for a few hours to make sure there are no leaks and it's all working well and then 'transplant' these autogambians into their respective buckets. But wait, there's more! will be setting up an aeroponic grow in a 12 gallon tub with 5 sites in 3" net pots to see how it works out. This will also leave the initial tub (which the auto gambians are currently residing in) empty for more work/experiments. I am also in the process of building my own LEDs and seeing which works best - 3w diodes or 10w ones. I am going to be using a combination of cool white/warm white. I think I will lean towards the 3w because they generate less heat. and we are done...for now. more later amigos Now for a joint of the best charas in the world.... Boom El Chupa

  6. Hello all. I am new to OG and this will be my first online grow journal. Please feel free to chime in and give advice where it is needed. I have grown in a ebb flow system before, but this will be my first DWC/RWDC system and only my second grow. Tent is and older Big Easy® 80 4.3ft x 2.8ft x 6.5ft Light is a Sunblaze t5 48 with 6500k bulbs, I will be switching to a 600 hps or 1000 hps in flower. 6 and 4 inch vortex inline fans, 6" has filter Constructed a diy current culture system. Basically its 2 black tubs with the yellow lids from Home Depot connected via 2" pipe through uni-seals to a thick new "Kingsford used charcoal" bucket. The pump is a Eco 1056 which should move around 1000g/h, might be over kill but I got a good deal on it. Front of system Back of system I will be using Heavy 16 veg a+b nutrients, as well as GO bioroots. My local hydroponics store advised me on these nutrients because it isn't supposed to leave a film or build up with salts, compromising my system. My system holds about 35-40 gallons of water. I tried to measure it with a 5 gallon bucket and i counted 35g but there was some residual. Strain I will be growing is Blue Og. Best clones I could find, cloner was highly recommended and they are 1st generation. I plan on vegging the 4 for a few months to achieve the size I am looking for. I might flip them sooner due to growth, like I said this will be my first dwc system, but I have high hopes of a lot of growth. One week ago
