Hello fellow opengrowers It has been some time since i last posted a journal here and now i feel i have been quite for to long so i thought its best to share again. If new growers are reading this i encourage you to post journals of your grows and my reasons for this is it was forums that kept me in that learning state as i was always busy reading and learning from other mapito growers and also as i was documenting my grow, it was giving me that extra boost to stay on top of my grow and get every job done that needs done as when you have beeen growing for as long as i have the enthusiasm can go at times but if you are coming on the forums every day other growers will inspire you to try new things in your room and this is the only way to really learn trial and error, i can remember when i thought i couldnt hit numbers like a gpw as back then it seemed so far away yet growers like Limbo Holland, Eskobar and other growers from Hennepedesk made it look so easy but i stayed at it after every grow and alot of disappointing results it would always motivate me to do better on my next one i believe this is the attitude that is needed to get good results the knowledge and experience will come in time. So this will be my grow journal i hope to speak with some old friends and new ones i will document it from start to finish you will see the good, bad and the ugly hopefully it will be a good one for yous all . I will post pictures tomorrow and explain how i do things now. Hope you enjoy the show. Snydgrow
So here it is my first grow report... I was going to backdate pictures etc to the start of my grow but i figure its a semi perpetual SOG so it will be all the same soon enough anyway. About the grow cabinet: 1200w x 600d x 1800h (8 square feet) DIY CXB3590 lights on 2 fixtures, set apart so there is 1 COB evenly over every square foot running at 50w each (50w per square foot) on at midnight off at midday flood and drain system table is flooded 9 times per day for 5 minutes, 2 hourly while it is cooler at night and hourly during the day. 4 inch extraction fan with carbon filter 5.5 inch square pots fits 31 in the tray and a space left for the overflow/inlet Strains: Dinafem- Big Kush G13 Labs- Pineapple Express Sannies Shop- Herijuana, Jackberry, C99xBBC freebies. Big Bud- Gifted cuttings Now for some pictures I guess: Light and pump timers attached to the roof of the cabinet and the extraction outlet hole. 6 inch oscillating fan and one of the DIY LED modules. Light trap for the intake on the left and reservoir on the right. Mother/clone setup with storage and a drying rack, this has some extraction from the 4 inch fan used by the flower cab. Flowering cab in full view. Sannies gear in flower regime from seed with some Pineapple Express in the background. Big Kush that was cut a couple of days ago. An experimental graft to rootstock while taking some cuttings to see if it will heal and grow faster than clones. One of the midget Big Kush plants was pollinated with herijuana. Any criticisms are welcome, and i have some questions to come but thankyou for reading my first log entry.
