Thank U,Rampage!!!

 

it´s not recommendable,i would say!

They took 13-14 weeks from pop to chop. after 4-5 weeks the first pistils came out,than they took another 9-10weeks to finish.

with 2 weeks 18/6 in the beginning and 9-10 weeks to flowertime i´ld take the same time,maybe i could even save a week.

it was not a advantage for me,i guess the plants will thrive better with 2-3weeks 18/6 B) ..... think,i don´t do this again ;)

 

Thanks for the advice man, so maybe a 1 month veg and then flower for 10 weeks(depending on strain) is the better option?

 

However with that said, I still would be very happy with the results you have achieved :lol:

 

Would also be awesome to hear a smoke report on the Dutch Toxic :D or the S.A.D :)

Hey Rampage,it depends to the Strain.Some huge+long flowering Sativas you can pobably run 12/12 from Start with good results,but with Indicas(mixes) you should give 10-15days(should be enuff,depends to your growspace) veg.time.

I've done a 12\12 from seed grow a few months ago and from my experience you better let them veg for 3 weeks before going 12\12.

12\12 from seed would still make the seedling veg for a while and the lack of light hours would just slow the growth.

I can link you to my grow log if you'll throw my a PM.

 

Anyhow, if your going to flower them ASAP use at least 1gallon pots.

 

 

Cheers.

 

I disagree B) depends on genetics, Killing Fields, Jackhammer, Lady Caine, even Sannies jack and SHACKZILLA these can all be done from seed with very impressing results. Sannie has proved it in around 13 weeks with about 3 days 18/6 just for the seedling tap root to develop.Hell I myself with Sativa genetics have been impressed with this method.Only Indica dom genetics, I'd say need more root establishment in the media, therefore more Yield with only 2 weeks growth when flipped to 12/12.With the genetics mentioned they still grow as if in 18/6 for the first 3-4 weeks 12/12,this is how we end up with good results still, however I can not comment on the SWEET SEEDS genetics as I know very little about them.Here's Sannies resent thread enjoy with results Sannies 25 Killingfields and Shackzilla 12/12 from seed. .I know its a bigger output lamp :) but so what,! on a smaller scale it can be done as I no it :D

Actually, it's not that simple.

First, ya have to know that the auxin, the hormone responsible for the growth, is destroyed by light ; which means that the "growing phase" is the dark period in your setup. The light period is kind of a "stengthening phase". So the longer your dark period is, the longer auxin can do his job, but the shorter your light period is, the less strong your plant will be. Consequently, going 12/12 from the seed will lead to taller but weaker plants (in theory).

Secondly, there is a huge variability in the number of copies of the gene coding for the production of auxin (high number in sativa strains, low to very low and recessive in indica strains). This genetic trait, as well as others like the vigor of the plant/strain, or the root developpement capacity, is to take in account. That's why going 12/12 from seed with vigorous strains like KF, JH, LC and affiliates will get you good results.

IMHO, going 15/9 or 14/10 the first/two first weeks could be a good compromise...

 

Anyhow, when I look at your results, seems like in your case 12/12 from the start was the way to go :lol:

 

Congrats !

 

My 2 cents

Your not wrong Superbeasto, B) the point I was getting at is sativa dom genetics out weigh Indica dom 12/12 from seed thats all,! without it getting too complicated.Hell SAXO, some nice variety U got there, sorry I haven't been around , just been sulking and looking into my empty space for now, well lets hope soon enough I get back on the road again.Getting back to growing with a 250 watt HPS, I learnt that less plants with a more veggy time was the way to go, unless U wanted something off a variety like yours, either way nice work.

Hallo all

 

Thanks for the kind words,ES

.........Anyhow, when I look at your results, seems like in your case 12/12 from the start was the way to go :D

Congrats !.........

...but as i already wrote above,i don´t do this again....it´s better to give them 18/6h for good Growth,bevor they flower. it just was a test to see,what time they need and wich results they give.....we´ll see in a few days ;)

 

Sbasibo,Brother Bodd B) Thank You!

hoping too,you´re gonna be back on road very soon! hold my Thumbs for you,my friend!!!

 

in the meantime they all chopped.

Thank You vrey much,Rampage!! glad,you like my grow :o

no,got no wet weight,but i expect more than 0,5g/watt ,as it looks like :D

 

the next babies are LowRyder 2 fem(self-STS-Test) from a fellow grower....i have to try this beans myself finally !!

156grams of dank seems like a good haul to me.

 

I must ask though, how long will your crop last you?Can you make it to your next harvest?

He Fuzz,it should last a few months,as it looks like :specool .....since i quit smoking Joints and started vaporizing,i don´t need as much weed as bevor,when rolling joints.

so it should be enuff to run the tent 2times a year,maybe 3 times/year :lol:

 

sometime,to remember the times bevor the Vaporizer,i´m smoking my old Chillum........ :tu

Some amazing buds there SAXO :specool I think some ppl underestimate the power that 250 watts can do. I think the secret is the near perfect temps it can give without much equipment, no excessive heat and gud environment they cause which give gud results. I'm not saying that 240 watts is better than a higher powered lamp by far , just the less stress of a bad environment which always pays off with what U have providing U maximise the light out put OF THE 250 WATT lamp, u can still get some gud results CONGRATS :lol:

Hehe Bodders,Thank You,my Friend!!!

 

have to agree,250W is enuff to grow out your own Stash,although quality is better when grown under 400W or more <_<

 

some pix to finish these Topic:
