Oldschoolsg's Garden

Recommended Posts

hello guys!

 

I've been around on Opengrow for a while but never made a grow report so here it is :)

 

telling you guys right away, I am not very good with a camera, all is done out of a phone cam so sometimes it's good and sometimes its crap...I'll try and do my best. I find it hard to do justice to the ladies as the colors never appear on screen as they actually are because of the flash, but if I remove it my pics are no good.. :l

 

anyway :) been growing indoors for a little more than 2 years and a half, many rounds already time flies!

had a couple plants outside couple years in a row before that but I had no knowledge of their needs back then so it was very poor results.

 

A friend back then showed me his set up and "taught" me the basics. saw him go for many years around his set up and learned a lot. I was very interested but did not have the option to do it myself. he also taught me a lot about strains and linage. my friend's the one who introduced me to sannie's seed and opengrow and donated me seeds he made (chucky's bride f2 and blue rocket x selene ) and some other ones I did outside(can't remember what it was :blush: ) I am very thankful for that. ^_^

 

My first "real grow" that sustained me stash-wise and started it all was started outside. 3 chucky's brides (all diff phenos) and 1 chucky's bride x sugarpunch. they were vegged and started flowering outside. I then got a 4x4 dr120 tent, a 600 watts hps,an octagonal reflector (that's since been replaced with an adjusta wing(witch I love )) , a 6 " vortex fan and of course a carbon filter! ;)

 

And it was on! :dribble: I then took the ladies and moved them inside, everything went well, had a decent yield of awesome buds but I did bring some spider mites inside with the outdoor plants witch was less awesome :P..rookie mistake..oh well! got rid of them entirely after that round.

 

From that point I really was hooked to this hobby seeing all you can produce from a simple seed , That was the start of my passion for growing .then really got into Og and started acquire seeds like a madman B)

 

I made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot from them, made some adjustment in my equipment, my equipment set up and my techniques overtime. I learned so much and know there is still much more to learn. I will be happy to share with you guys in this thread what I do and what are my results.I am very open to any kind of feedback, suggestions or questions!

 

will be happy to share,learn from you or to help in any way I can :D

 

So here's how I roll, I usually always try to aim for 4 plants flowering in my 1.20 m tent I did clones on many occasions but for now,I want to go back to full seed rounds (cause I got so many to try and use before they are no longer good..say what you want 7-8 years go by fast! ;) )

 

last round I started 1 seed later then the others and she started flowering much later so now the timing is a bit awkward but it's ok my boxes of hanging head candy x silverfields cohabits in there so the smell is contained . when the lights are out I also put some jars open in the tent for smell reason also, just starting to cure, it smells amazing! some nice treats to come! :dribble:

 

last round I ran bluerocket x selene, cheeseberry, headcandy x silverfields. only sugarpunch is left, she still is running and has a few more more weeks to go. I may trow in some pics upon requests of my last run but I think it's been well covered in the budporn thread :P

 

so for now got the future run starting in my "nursery" witch consist of a closet with 2 x 24 watts t5 :rolleyes2:

left row from top to bottom silverfields f2, twisted fruit f2, lady cane f3

 

 

so that's total 6 babies. In the best of worlds I would like 4 girls but anywhere from 1 to 5 would be fine.

that will be the most sativa leaning run I will have made with all runners from 9.5 to 12 weeks. I'm in no rush I do it for me :) I enjoy it and all of the stash is for me and my girlfriend :icecream:

 

here's the looner in the tent sugarpunch

happy to make the big jump..cause sharing... is caring! ;)

Nice nice!

Light radiation on the buds or jars will decrease the potency.

Even u do not see UV radiation, it is there.

It is very important u dry and cure in total darkness.

 

I like your big crates.

thanks! me too man! very interested in the nepalma, ran 2 seeds previously on separate runs and they both turned out to be males so hoping for a lady now! :shifty:

appreciate the heads up :wave:

 

I was aware at any moment after cutting they should not be in contact with the lights whatsoever., usually my boxes are next to the tent in complete darkness, but this run I had place in there and the smell was a little overwhelming so shoved it in there. I removed it for the pics but I also have something on top of the boxes to make sure no light whatsoever get to the buds, I open the boxes to let the extra humidity get out only when light are out. jars are in there only when lights are out as well, otherwise always in a complete dark spot! are you saying uv's can affect buds through the cardboard or were you refering to the open crack you see on top of the boxes?

 

thanks love the crates too! been useful a lot, but still next round they are getting replaced with 15 gallons root pouches :)

Anything that blocks light will block UV. Even untreated glass will filter 10 - 30% of UV. But you definitely don't want to expose clear glass jars of weed to light for extended periods. I don't know if it's true, but I've heard light will reduce weed potency more than storing weed warmer than optimal temperatures.

once again, my jars are never exposed to light.. they were put in the tent for very temporary amount of time. the lights were always off when that happened. temperatures are low in there.. turned it to 400 watts last night.

 

few more days in there and the head candy x silverfield hit the jars :)

I'm confident there's no problem as I mention the bud are in the total dark even tough the boxes are in the tent.

 

have a good one!

transplanted the little ones in 2 gallons root pouches, threw them a bunch of stuff in; bone meal blood meal, dolomite lime, mycorizzha, guano, worm cast, some bacto, some kelp meal. feather meal...

 

twisted fruit, sannies jack f8 and hammerhead been topped.

 

waiting on nepalma, silverfield f2 and lady cane f3 to show their 4th set of real leafs to top them.

 

mainly stalling until the sugarpunch finishes :) should be right on time for them to revel their sex and for me to know where I'm going for this round

 

so this is it, now let's wait and see

I notice some rusty spots on your Lady Cane. Perhaps a little foliar feed of Mg would help her grow faster?

;) noted

 

she's been slower than the others from the start. they are all in the same mix and have all sprouted the same day

 

wanted to give them a little foliage spraying with some yucca in there but my spraying bottle died on me, will have to get another one shortly. the newest growth is green and healthy, I'm not that concerned about it.

 

thanks for stopping by and giving me a head's up :wave:

Mg is a mobile element, so if there's a deficiency, the plant will take it from older leaves and transport it to the top. So in this case the healthy new growth doesn't mean all is well. It doesn't look like anything serious (yet) though, may have been a hick up in the early stages.
