Greetings again everybody! Over the past few months I have tried very hard produce various grow journals but have failed completion due to a very busy and complicated schedule and lack of "free time" I am hoping to free up some time over the next few months to show some of the little projects I get the pleasure of creating. In an attempt to make up for some previous incomplete journals, here is a peek of a little bit of testing with some new toys and design for you all to enjoy. Once again, all fruits of this labor of love are given away free of charge to those in need. My fee still remains the inner joy of growing and giving. First up, We have had a little room upgrade from a 4ft x 7ft (1.2x2.3x2.0) to a 5ft x 10ft (1.5x3.0x2.3) The tent on one side has a Gavita Pro 1000w DE and the other side a Dimlux 1000w DE. On the left half of the tent we have 4x Grateful Casey (Casey Jones) vegged 3 weeks. On the right of the tent we have 2x Super Critical (Critical Mass x White Widow) vegged 3 weeks. And on the right a C99 mother that has been heavily LST'd and put into flower. All of these ladies are in 8L Rocket Pots filled with Coco that has had Beneficial Fungi hand mixed in. The watering system is a Tropf Blumat system using an elevated control tank. Some lovely root mounding. The Blumat system is using a control tank to maintain consistent pressure. It is simply a reservoir pumping water up to smaller shelved reservoir and overflowing back down to the main reservoir. By doing this the line pressure remains consistent regardless of the lower reservoir level due to the the upper reservoir always being the same fill level. The ladies (except the c99) were vegged for 3 weeks from rooted clone and topped going into flower. They are currently at the end of week 2 of 12/12 They are running on BAC Nutrients for this grow. Recipe thus far has been: 2ml/L Grotek Calmax 3ml/L BAC Coco Bloom 0.2ml/L BAC Silica Power 0.2ml/L BAC Bloom Stim 0.05ml/L BAC Pro Active EC 1.6, PH 5.8 I foliar spray every third day in a cycle: Grotek Calmax + Dutch Master Saturator Dutch Master Liquid Light + Dutch Master Saturator And have sprayed BAC Foliar Spray once a week since 12/12 Girls are currently drinking 40 litres per day. Enjoy! Rose.
Hey fellow growers and showers. Forgive me for my absence, it has been one of those weeks. It seams that I can't strike a good work/home balance at the moment, and it is becoming fatiguing. I hope this small house of Jane I have will enable me to look at going for part-time work this year. I'd Like to show you guys a bit more of my garden, I thought I would add some more pictures in this thread instead of the introduction I did. The strain is apparently Jedi Kush and as it's a clone off a friend and being in an illegal state, i have no way to verify it's authenticity. I'm using 23L rocketpots, with Canna coco. I run the BAC mineral nutrients, my schedule in veg was (it didn't change) 2m/l of BAC grow a 2m/l of BAC grow b 2m/l of Growtek Calmax 0.8-1.0m/l of BAC Root Stim. EC 1.6 PH 6.0 I reduced the size of my pictures down to 1/5th of their original, so we'll see how this turns out This is the 2 girls in veg. 1 growlite og hood burning a solistek 600w 4k bulb week 4 I got a second loaner ballast from a generous friend and put the second hood to use with another bulb. I was changing things around and trying to find what works, those big clear tubs didn't work too well for me. week 5 I skipped week 6 pics for some reason, probably too stoned After I vegged out the girls for 6-7 weeks, I flipped the light schedule to 12/12 and kept them under the 4k bulbs for a few days. The nutes so far 2m/l of BAC flower a 2m/l of BAC flower 2m/l of Growtek Calmax 1-2m/l of BAC bloom stim Week 1 week 2 week 3 and now week 4 (Edit on the above image, a week 1 pic slipped in and i've swapped it back to a week 4 pic) And here's some stem work I've been working on I took Rev's advice and cleaned out a fair bit of loose stuff, there is still more work to be done though. JK1 - named adele, because I thought she was gonna be the bbw. JK1 JK2 - turns out the name miss piggy suits this girl, she gobbles everything. JK2 - Don't be deceived by this picture, I can no longer wrap my hand around the base of the trunk. It's huge. Here is a scale picture, unfortunately in Cm's not inches haha Last but not least is my veg room. I'm hoping to make the flower room the veg room eventually and build a new flower room with double if not triple the floor space. We have a lumigrow 325 in there at the moment from another generous friend. We also have a big bubblegum ready to go, and some more jedi clones. and under normal white light I'm wondering weather or not I should put the second lumigrow in the flower room, just to go 'all out' so to speak. Heat is becoming an issue being in summer. My flower room is roughly 32C at the moment with 72%RH and I can't really bring either of those down, without increasing my power bill with a/c (I wish) I have been learning about white fly, I've had a small infestation for a while but it is becoming a problem now and I have to work out how to eradicate them. I have been using scaridfly but tonight I bought some eco oil which is supposed to be good. So I will test spray a small patch under the canopy and see how it goes. feel free to drop some bombs or advice, I will take it all in Well I'm off to water them now, I'll check back in within a few hours.

Firstly I'd like to thank you for allowing me to become a part of the Open Grow community. Please allow me to introduce myself. ~ I have been a medicinal grower for many years.
