Torsti

Torsti´s next round: 28 x S5 onder 540 watt T5

Recommended Posts

Dear Growers,

This will be my first fluo-topic on OpenGrow.

 

Let me show you my playground:

It is a custom-made box with the measurements 85cm deep, 135cm wide and 185cm high.

gallery_5351_9678_54994.jpg

I am growing under 540 watt T5-High Output-tubes, this system is made by myself.

gallery_5351_9678_65546.jpg

The last grow was very succesfull. I was using the Advanced Nutrients-line and the result was 1.16 gpw.

If you´re interested, you can read it here:

http://www.wietforum.nl/Torstis-volgende-r...-T5-t67213.html

 

This time I´ll grow an unknown plant (for me), the amnesia S5.

The ladies are standing in 3-l-pots with the medium Gold-Label-Custom-Light-Mix.

I am again using the Advanced Nutrients-Connoisseur-line.

gallery_5351_9678_90906.jpg

But this time it will be different:

AN is busy with a renewal of these nutrient-line. It´s getting easier to use.

This sytem got the name "ph-perfect".

There will be no need to control the ph of the ppm. Here in the Netherlands I´ve got a ph of 7,9 in my water and an ec of 0,8.

During the last grow I was wondering about the ph of the nutrient-solution. It was near the 6.3,everytime . So there was no need 2 adjust the ph.

Some stuff to read about it:

And here are the ladies:

31 nice little girls, these time without spider-mites, burns and they are green! :rofl

This evening I´ve prepared the first nutrient-solution, following this schedule:

Without any acid: ph 6.3 ;)

Thanks for bringing this over from WF side to share. Much appreciated.

 

I had wondered how much hype was involved with that line, but I keep seeing people say the same thing - it actually works ...

 

Looking forward to any updates you throw our way if you are mirroring this journal.

 

 

Be well,

The last round I was growing the Super-Shiva. Normally, I use the biological nutrient-line of Plagron.

At that time I was growing under the biggest (known) T5-system of the netherlands.

With the nutrients of Plagron the results were not bad, ~0,9 gpw.

After rebuilding my grow-box and using mirrors now for the reflection, I was asked to test the AN-line.

With the change of the nutrient-line, my first grow had finished with an unbelievable result of 1,16 gpw.

I´ve got 25%! more that round.

This line is a complex one, but it is very easy to use.

Without controlling the ph and the ec, it´s very easy to use voor beginners.

 

I´ll try to give an update every day. Here, on OpenGrow, I´am a newbie,

but on the other side, the WietForum, I`am the moderator of the Micro/Fluo-section and that is a lot of work.

 

Ontopic:

The ladies survived the first night. Below the 324 watt T5-lamp the temperature was 26°C en the humidity was 40 - 50%.

They are getting 12 hours of light now. I must try to keep these ladies short because they are known as very fast growing plants.

Dear Growers,

just a short update:

The plants are still alive ;)

Since yesterday the plants are standing under 540 watt of T5 and 200m³ activ inlet.

The temperature was climbing up until 30°C.

@Ikke,

Yes, and I´am trying to do my best here.

 

@Weedsitti and the magician,

here is the link, how I´ve build up my grow-box:

Only pic´s:

and the last topic:

http://www.wietforum.nl/Torstis-volgende-r...-T5-t67213.html

 

@The magician,

this isn´t micro, but it is fluo.

If here are the same rules as on WF, there is no problem.

(HPS up to 250 watt or fluorescent)

On WF there is a grower with a 1280 watt pll-system.

Hi there Torsti, best of luck with the S5 and your new nutrients. I'm confident you will break that 1gr/W again, no doubt! ;) It's way to early, but i'm guessing 1,3gr/W :rofl

 

Hopefully your plants won't grow out of your cab, but knowing you've got several bulb colours to play with, it should be no problem.

 

Talk to you soon

Hi Torsti. Enjoying your thread here and looking forward to following it. You did a great job of building your setup. I have been sold on the T5 HO for years and have praised it. I started using the T5 HO about 5 or 6 years ago. I did one complete grow using almost 4,000 watts of it, and it actually was one of my best results for any grow I have done. I still like it and would use it again, just not as the only light though. Anyway looking forward to seeing your results. ;)

@Bazz,

I´ll do my best. I´ll be happy if I can do it again or get a beter result.

1.3 gpw is the next level.

 

@Mildestonerismitis,

thank you! I hope you´ve enjoyed reading the topic´s.

 

@Whazzup,

the T5-guru is busy again! :o

(I´am just a little grower! ;) )

 

@Hupla,

let us see, what this round will bring!

The story of the S5:

There was once…

Someone, somewhere (near nijmegen) had done a selection with the amnesia haze. He was breeding seeds ,let them grow and selected this plants on pheno-types. Now it seems that there was a very nice, short flowering ( 9 weeks) pheno between them . There is no seed from this pheno. That´s is the reason, why there is no further breeding with this pheno and you only can get cuttings from this plant.

A vriend of this breeder, who also was working for him, got trouble with this man. He took revenge and grabbed 5 of the cuttings. He gave these cuttings away, two of these were given to a vriend. These were the shortflowering phenos. (My vriend didn´t know anything about the story). After the first harvest the guy came to my vriend and asked him about this weed. Clear amnesia! Then he told him, that these were flowering in 9 weeks. They had smoked some of these weed and were directly stoned. This weed was so heavy!!!!!

Then he said: " this is S5, that is, what you get at military service testing, if you´re totally crazy, S5!”

The other cuttings were crossed with other strains. Now, there is also one S5 with diesel taste and another one with a floweringtime of 13 weeks.

There are now three different S5-strains.

 

I´ve got 31 cuttings of the 9-week-strain. The original S5!

 

@Maverick,

4.000 watt´s of T5 ;)

What a setup! I would like to see such a room with this light in the flowering stage.

But I have not the posabilities to do it. :lol:

 

Some pictures taken yesterday:

Yesterday morning Twindaddy and I were looking if there were roots are coming out the pots.

gallery_5351_10645_321241.jpg

The first root came out the pot in four days! :rofl

Dear growers,

it is update-time:

All cuttings are growing wel. None of the 31 cuttings died or is staying behind.

Three of these cuttings are standing in 7,5 liter pots. Two are standing in the same soil than the others and one is standing in a new kind of rockwol (it uses another kind of glue).

gallery_5351_10645_452687.jpg

Til now, the ladies aren´t growing very fast. That was one of the warnings, I´ve got about growing this plant.

 

@The joker,

welcome!

 

@Hupla,

I´dont know when this breeding and selection had be done.

For further questions jou´ve got to ask "Bioloog" at WF.

Dear growers,

it´s update-time:

Tonight the plants are standing with the feets in the nutrients.

I´am playing now with the nutrients. With the "Sunday"-feeding, the ph was 6.3 and the "Wednesday"-feeding was 7.7.

Normally, I don´t need to do that, but I´ll try to get the ph on one level.

The nutrients are chelated, that means, the plant is able to get nutrients on a wider ph-range.

gallery_5351_7538_34026.jpg

So, this schedule is not longer part of mij plan.

 

Tonight I gave 2/3 Connoisseur A en B of 32,8 ml.

The rest comes with the "Wednesday"-feeding. The ph was 6,9.

 

The plants are growing goed, tonight I put the lamp down again.

The lights are hanging now 10 above the plants.

gallery_5351_10645_232942.jpg

Space enough to grow, the plants are allowed to grow up to 1m.

gallery_5351_10645_701643.jpg

 

@Topaz,

welcome! Nice to see you here also!

 

@Saxo,

Danke für das Lob!

Schön, daß auch noch ein paar deutsche Grower anwesend sind.

Dear growers,

an update:

The plants are still growing and I hope, that they will stop growing within a week.

gallery_5351_10645_469487.jpg

The temperature is mostly 26°C with the lights on.

The first signs of flowering. :rofl

gallery_5351_10645_292574.jpg

Until now, I´am satisfied with this grow.

 

@a man named truth,

Thank jou! ;)

Still love the attention to detail with your cabinet Torsti.

 

I've been going through the original thread on this build discussion on WF but some of it is getting lost in translation.

 

The one question I have is what are the mirror panels made from? It doesn't look like a normal glass mirror. I dont think I missed a link to it, and it may be obvious to some others, but I simply cannot tell what it is.

 

 

Thanks again for sharing this here,

O_S
