1. The grey looking dust, around the seed and on top of the soil, is the root inoculate known as "Roots." (See the kit instructions for more specific details.)

 

2. Most of the time... In this grow I plan on using up to 1.5x strength doses.of the kit "Drenches" ("Growth Energy," "Transplant," and "Cat Drench.") For the sake of information: half strength is about 2.46ml, full strength is about 4.93ml, 1.5x strength is about 7.39ml, 2x strength is about 9.86ml, and 2.5x strength is about 12.32ml

 

3. Mixed into 16 fl oz (1 pint) of water about 1.85ml (a quarter strength dose) of Transplant plus the 2.5 ml of tea.

 

4. At the moment, I have my main light source about 30in (about 76cm) away from the top of the soil.

General update: Day 3 (Germination: 3)

 

- The seedling is pushing it's cotyledons up through the top soil. I am hoping the seed casing stays in the soil.

 

I will have more photos with the next up date when the cotyledons are showing.

New photos will be added with the next post.

 

Day 12 (Veg. phase 9)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 800g

 

- Eight days without food or water.

 

- Just for the sake of information: the water I am using has a ph of about 6.5

 

Day 14 (Veg. phase 11)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 760g

 

- 10 days without food or water. 15 days was the longest I have taken a grow without food or water

 

Day 15 (Veg phase 12)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 740g

 

- Day 11 without food or water.

 

Day 16 (Veg phase 13)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 726g

 

- Day 12 without food or water.

 

Day 17 (Veg phase 14)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 710g

 

- Day 13 without food or water.

 

- I flipped the "Bloom" switch on to for the infrared exposure, in addition to the UV radiation. If I recall correctly, with the "Bloom" switch on the LED array gives off a 2700k color rating.

 

Day 18 (Veg phase 15)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 694g

 

- Day 14 without food or water.

 

Day 19 (Veg phase 16)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 676g

 

- Day 15 without food or water.

 

Day 20 (Veg phase 17)

 

- The container and seedling weighs 664g

 

- Day 16 without food or water.

 

Day 21 (Veg phase 18)

 

- Since the cotyledon leaves were yellowing, I gave the plant a good drench using full dose of "Growth Energy" (about 5ml) plus 2ml "Tea" mixed in water. (Technically: I used 10ml Growth energy... 5ml was directly put onto the top of the soil and the other 5ml was added to the water. According to kit instructions "Drenches" are made with double the chosen amount of food added to the water)

 

- Before the feeding / watering everything (the plant, soil, and container) weighed 664 grams (about 1.46lb).

 

- After the feeding / watering everything (the plant, soil, additional water, and container) weighed 1.922 kilograms (about 4.24lb).

 

- At the moment, the plant is showing signs of over watering, however that will resolve itself within the next day or two.

 

- With this feeding and watering the longest I have let a plant go without food or water is now 16 days. With each feeding / watering I am expecting the plant to need food and water again sooner than last time.

Just for the sake of information... Granted I do not know when I was born, nor do I have a birth certificate... I can remember having to use a "Dial up" connection through AOL to connect to the internet. Back then there were no web forums just chat rooms and anytime a phone call came through or if someone picked up the hand receiver the internet connection was lost. I also remember when "Prodigy On-line" was the only dial up internet service. I remember using a rotary phone to make a phone call... I remember having only 13 television channels to watch. I used to play "Frogger" on the old Atari 2600 Video Computer System.

Details:

 

Day 63 (Veg phase 60)

 

- Day 2 without food or water

 

- The plant is about 30cm tall

 

- The main light source sits about 51cm above the canopy.

 

Day 64 (Veg phase 61)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (.5ml to .5fl.oz)

 

- Day 3 without food or water

 

Day 65 (Veg phase 62)

 

- Day 4 without food

 

- I gave the plant 2 liters of water hoping to resolve possible nitrogen toxicity.

 

Day 67 (Veg phase 64)

 

- Day 6 without food. Day 2 without water.

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (.5ml to .5fl.oz)

 

- I added a small space heater to grow space.

 

- Last vegetative phase night.

 

Day 68 (Flower phase 1)

 

- Day 7 without food. Day 3 without water.

 

- I completed the pruning I had intended on doing for this particular plant. The next Afghan kush plant will have more pruning done. This first one is just to see how the strain might grow if left alone. My last Mad kush grow produced an ounce "Dry weight."

 

- With outdoor grows, cannabis begins to flower when the length of day becomes shorter and the length of night becomes longer. Which makes it a "Short Day / Long night" flower. With the beginning of the flowering phase. I am going to follow a diminishing light schedule that begins with 11 hours of light and 13 hours of darkness.

 

If I were following the standard indoor grow methodologies the standard 12/12 lighting schedule only gives the plant 84 hours of darkness per week. With the diminishing light schedule this first week the plant will have 91 hours darkness to begin flowering under. Using a diminishing light schedule I can give short day/long night plants seven more hours of darkness every two weeks.

 

By the time my last plant was harvested, at week seven, it was flowering under 16 hours of darkness per day. At the time of harvest the plant was given a total of 826 hours of darkness.

 

With the standard 12/12 lighting schedule, at week seven, the plant would have received 588 hours of darkness and would needed at least two more weeks to mature.

IMAG1663

IMAG1665

 

Details:

 

Day 70 (Flower Phase 3)

 

- The plant went eight days without food and four days without water.

 

- Food / Water: 1/4 strength Transplant in about 4 liters of water.

 

- The plant seems to have recovered from Nitrogen toxicity.

 

Day 71 (Flower Phase 4)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress ( .5ml to .5fl oz)

 

- Pistils are showing.

 

Day 74 (Flower Phase 7)

 

- Raised the light up about 10cm

 

- The plant is nearly 50cm tall

 

- Day 4 without food or water

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (.5ml to .5fl oz)

 

- Diminishing light schedule: It is the end of week one, for this week the plant will have 13.5 hours of darkness. The total amount of darkness for the week is 94.5 hours. Last week the plant had 91 hours of darkness

 

Remember cannabis is short day / long night flower. Meaning it flowers best as the night grow longer. It's critical night length is eight hours. When night arrives switching the phytochromes means the total darkness comes faster and the plant can begin it's flower (calyx / pistil) bud production sooner, which then leads to bigger colas. Longer nights means more time to produce more flowers.

 

Day 75 (Flower phase 8)

 

- I turned the plant around 180 degrees. The floor of my closet is slanted toward the opening which causes the plant to grow out at an angle. I'll fix the issue with the next grow.

 

Day 77 (Flower phase 10)

 

- Six days without food or water.

 

- Food / Water: 5ml Transplant with 1ml Tea in about 4 liters of water.

 

Day 78 (Flower phase 11)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (.5ml to .5floz)

 

- I added an additional liter of water to the tray to help resolve any residual nitrogen toxicity and pruned off the lowest secondary branches.

I will post more photos another day.

 

General update:

 

Day 79 (Flower phase 12)

 

- The main light was raised about 10cm.

 

- The plant is about 63.5-66cm(25-26in) tall.

 

Day 80 (Flower phase 14)

 

- The main light was raised about 8cm.

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (1ml to 1fl.oz)

 

Day 82 (Flower phase 15)

 

- Turned the plant 180 degrees

 

- Reduced the light schedule down to 10 hours on / 14 hours off. This week the plant will have 98 hours of darkness.

 

- Food and water: 1.25ml transplant in about 4 liters of water plus another 500ml of water in the tray.

Day 88 (Flower phase 21)

 

- Food and Water: 5ml Cationic drench (aka: Cat Drench) and 1ml Tea in about 4 liters of water. The "Cationic Drench" heavily favors flower production since it contains a lot of flowering hormones. The "Transplant" drench favors flower production also, just not as heavily as the Cat drench.

 

- Turned the plant 180 degrees

 

- The plant is over growing my small space so I pulled a few branches back closer to the main stalk.

Technical Update:

 

I have ordered and already received some of the parts I need to build a four COB fixture. Including some needed tools, any shipping, and miscellaneous taxes I spent about 300 USD altogether.

 

Major parts List:

- Four Citizen(aka: CitiLED) CLU048-1212 3500K 90 CRI COBs [Typical Foward Voltage(Vf): 34.6 each]

- Four Ideal Chip-lok holders (50-2204CT)

- Four Ledil angelina reflector adapters (50-2100AN)

- One sided thermal adhesive pads (1 pack of 10)

- Four Mechtronix Moduled 9980 heat sinks

- One 200w MeanWell HLG-185H C1400A driver. Maximum voltage output: 143v

 

Miscellaneous parts list:

- Ideal Luminaire disconnects (1 pack of 5)

- Self tapping, Hex head, M3x10mm screws (1 pack of 100)

- Self tapping, Hex head, M4x12mm screws (1 pack of 25)

- Rivets

- 18 awg solid core wire 25' (about 8m)

- A 125 volt three prong plug

- Angled aluminum 3.175mm x 1.22m (1/8th inch thick, 1" x 1" x 4')

 

Personal thoughts:

 

At the moment I am still waiting on the self tapping, hex head, m4x12mm screws. At the earliest, the screws should arrive on the 18th from China. Until the screws arrive I have just about everything ready for the installation into the grow space.

 

The driver is not going to be mounted on the fixture, but left near the ground of my grow space. I went with the Ideal Luminare disconnects versus the more popular Wago connectors, due to my knowledge of wiring automobiles and one connector for both the positive and negative leads is easier to deal with. The whole fixture has two separate disconnection points to make the installation easier. One point is just off of the fixture and the other is directly off of the driver itself.

 

To power all four COBs the fixture needs 138.4 volts of electricity from the driver. With a 143v maximum output the driver is 4.6volts away from being maxed out.

 

Relative to overall operating temperatures, I am expecting to get about 19000-21000 lumens per second(aka: luminous flux) with all four COBs running. The COBs will be more efficient and put out more light with lower operating temperatures. I could have bought the same model COBs with a higher luminous flux and lower CRI (Color rendering index) however I am using the fixture for plant energy rather than brightness to human eyes. My current LED array has a luminous flux of about 7000.

 

Depending on how well this fixture does, I may end up building another fixture using the newest and larger CLU058-1825 COBs, the same CRI, and color temperature, that have about 15000-16000 luminous flux per COB. Or I might just upgrade the current COBs with the newer, more efficient CLU048-1818 model (about 10000-11000 luminous flux per COB).

 

The websites I bought the major parts from:

CobKits.com (For 10% off: Coupon code: RUI)

CDI Web: LED division (A great deal of their stock is out, if you are not in a rush for parts it may be worth while to ask for a quote.)

 

I bought the miscellaneous parts at a local hardware store and off of amazon.com. The most expensive parts were the COBs, the heat sinks, and the driver.

 

Going off of what I have read on another cannabis related web forum it is possible to out perform a 400 watt HPS/MH system with a four 36v COB fixture. For those who are competent at soldering, there are seriously high powered, high bay, COBs on the market being used for horticulture purposes.

I'll let the pictures "Do most of the talking."

 

The frame pieces were cut using a hack saw.and bolted together with rivets. Although you might not be able to tell, I know I would have made a better frame with a dedicated drill press and cut off saw. Oh well, I will have a drill press and cut off saw for the next build.

 

The needed bolts arrived, from China, earlier than expected. I only managed to break two bolts heads off while tapping the heatsink with them. The last picture shows the array at 75% power. At full power, light gets all the way down to the soil level and the CFL UV A/B bulbs do not look like they are turned on.

 

Other than waiting for parts to arrive and the planning, the most time consuming portion of the build was making the frame.

I am digging the build, Rayne. I have been itching to put together a cob rig and go for max penetration. The citizen cobs look like the way to go for sure, just a matter of working out the logistics of which to get for a 3x3. Reading all the info on another site has my head swimming with numbers that don't mean anything to me (yet).
