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.

looking great only thing i can suggest is move the feeder lines on medium further away from stem to prevent possible stem rot this will help stop the fungi growth Also i would carefully remove the infected area before it spreads through out

its always better to have roots search for the water rather then having it go down right by the plant this increases root growth and vigor other then that well done

Having just read a pro - cop article about

how Australia is growing the worlds strongest weed.

 

Why would any Auzzie grow indoors

just baffles me, unless its heat

if so grow sativas and make the best of what you have

 

Although its a very nice grow

more time spent on this

would get you to complete at least one journal

Thank you Saxo.

 

A platter of various nibbles and refreshments will be by shortly :)

 

What a beautiful setup Rose. Thanks for sharing your inspiring technique and mission :)

Thank you Reverand.

 

It is nothing short of a pleasure to have you along as always *bows

With the 8L pots only having a 20cm base, it is a little tricky inserting the Blumat 50/50 in the pot and retaining a 7-8cm dripper length.

 

Having it slightly offset by an inch has worked well so far in tests.

 

I certainly wish not to destroy and fungi :P But the root mounding you may be unfamiliar with?

 

This is very characteristic of efficient Blumat systems (if I may so myself hehe)

Thank you Vostok.

 

Australia does indeed produce some excellent quality, but we also produce some of the worst due to unregulated ornamental chemicals and lack of quality education on behalf of users.

 

Outdoor and indoor growers face their own unique strengths and weaknesses, but regardless of environment we all face time constraints at certain periods.

 

Nice! Clean and happy ladies in there. Good job.

 

Thank you Elwin.

Thank you for your confidence Mr Dirt.

 

But I was somewhat delighted that Fool on a Hill pointed this out so quickly.

 

These 2 photos were taken in a more deliberate way than they appeared to point out exactly what was mentioned.

 

Yes the connections are secure, but accidents are not premeditated.

 

Both power board and connections are (now) both wall mounted and away from the risk of water leak.

I guess i should of rephrased my answer did your coco come with thricoderma ????? if you let that continue the way it is it will end up eating away at the bottom of the stem and become infected, maybe buy a little fan for blowing along the bottom of the plants as well as the tops, good air circulation is what is needed here, as its usually caused by poor air circulation, and high humidity either way its a fungi disease if you coco didn;t come with thricoderma which forms on the roots not on top of soil , and is good.

what you got going is a fungi disease forming on the surface where its wet and humid or possible salt build up

either way its your show good luck and plants are looking good :P

The Christmas grow ended well, I just didnt get a chance to snap the end result :(

 

Nice set up, it look's like those root's like the blumats, good luck.

 

Thank you Gregster.

 

excellen grow :)

 

Thank you Greek.

 

So we are at the end of week 3 of 12/12.

 

The ladies are blossoming along lovely and I am very pleased with the BAC lineup thus far.

 

They are consuming about 50 liters per day with no waste so they must be happy smile.png

 

It never fails to amaze me what can be done in such a little rocket pot.

 

On to the girls...

 

Enjoy!

 

Rose.

@Rose, amazing grow, great work and clean setup. Nice sized area you got to work with too. I am a hydro guy, but fascinated by this root mounding. Never experienced any of that in my grows and boy do I want to. Looks amazing.

 

I have not used Bluemats, is that typical or is more the mix of nutes and the rocketpots? Do you find that mounding to be a strain specifc trait of just your superior growing skills?

 

Big roots = Big Buds.

 

Keep it up and keep'em green

Thank you Saxo.

Thank you Bigun.

 

Every box of apples has one.

 

Sometimes the way people speak can be misinterpreted in forums, but use of emoticons helps to prevay the tone of the comment. :)

 

Positivity and constructive comments are why I joined this forum.

I have been hoping you would drop in sooner than later ;)

 

A little hard to be conclusive as to why the roots are going crazy.

 

Blumat mounding is typical when the sensor is dialled in, but usually not to this degree.

 

I speculate from experience that the reason the roots are so aggressive is due to a combination of:

 

a. A very hungry Casey Jones that has a "moar!" appetite.

 

b. Mixing in so much Beneficial Fungi into the coco prior to planting.

 

c. The B.A.C Nutrients have a very strong emphasis on root health/pressure which is creating a monster like root system of efficiency. The new variable Im using is the B.A.C Pro Active that may contribute also.

 

:wtf2: Never seen roots doin' things like that! Crazy!

Nice happy lookin big garden... :popcorn:

 

boOm

1o0%

 

Thank you 100% Pure Resin.

 

They are some freaky roots indeed in my "little" garden. :)
