Vasco de Gama

My little grow.

Recommended Posts

Verry nice topic and grow!

 

Some nice genetics in there 2, you've peaked my interest and i'll probbaly take a peak now and then :wave:

 

PS: NIce lil greenhouse you got there, a bit small if you consider the amount of air to catch all the water those ladies are ganna put in there whille evaporating..

in your opening post you wrote:

Airflow in is passive from underneath and also passive outlet which creates negative pressure.

 

What on earth do you mean? How can both be passive yet a negative preasure be formed?

I think he means, as the hot air exits the top it creates a vacuum and pulls in the fresh air in the bottom, I'm no scientist but if the top vents were large enough with the right temps, it could create a negative pressure as the heat escapes.

@Justcozz, exactly that

I googled how to ventilate a area without fans and that popped up.

In theory it looks perfect but with ever changing temps and humidity also not stable it might not be as effective.

@oezzoes I've also taken your comment into consideration and decided to install a extraction(active) fan which will pull the air in from the bottom(through negative pressure ;) ) and out the top despite the temp.

(also to drop the humidity as I don't have a opening in the greenhouse roof.

I built this greenhouse this spring and this is also the first grow in it.

One would only expect that not every detail has been perfected.

I am grateful that there are (experienced)growers willing to help on here.

 

If anybody has a follow up comment on this issue please don't hesitate to post it.

Ive build a greenhouse about 20m2 big, to last me a lifetime only to realize i forgot the roof windows ( and the way its build makes it semi impossible to put them in now:p

 

How hot does it get in there. Temps of 42 degrees are common in myn..

I had temepratures today of 33 with outside temp at 32.(I open the door a little when it reaches 30 early morning)

This week is a good one for dutch growers.

I don't think my blooming autos would enjoy 42 *C too much.

I also live in a flat so the smell must not be strong enough to cause trouble with the neighbours 2 meters away.

I'm also thinking of fitting a carbon filter to the extractor fan if the plants smell too much.

You can always add a couple of vent fans in the ceiling set up on a thermostat, so they will kick on automatically when the temps rise. That way you are not cooling it down when you shouldn't, and you don't have to race home on hot days. I installed a few in a family members attack a few years ago, they work like a charm.

Quick update:

The cats destroyed all of my seedlings. :'(

I am on the other hand happy about this, I can now focus more on my few plants that I still have.

The critical will most probably also go out(heavy nutrient burn and extra stunted growth)

I will post some pictures today/tomorrow.

 

Greetings Vasco

In one of my grows, mice ate 4 of 6 seedlings. They were punished, though, and never did it again.

 

For some reason I thought this fit into the conversation.

Hi Opengrow,

Big-ish update,

First off, the clones were a huge success as all of them made it with roots white as snow.

gallery_22915_6022_1965415.jpg

This is how they are looking today, sunbathing for a while until I go to work.

gallery_22915_6022_2225346.jpg

P.S don't mind the mess

The stems are also thickening nicely

gallery_22915_6022_1107190.jpg

I have four Thai haze autoflower seedlings left which will probably show sex in the next 3 weeks.

gallery_22915_6022_1007981.jpg

My inside grow area is comprised of two TL 865 and two 18W grow lamps off AliExpress

gallery_22915_6022_1729840.jpg

Now for the real garden---->

The critical has recovered and I hope she performs so I can harvest a little for the winter.

gallery_22915_6022_3020184.jpg

The Hindu Kush have been flowering for 3 weeks now and smell awesome

 

One is nevertheless quite unusual

gallery_22915_6022_625219.jpg

I think a freak pheno and I also have one that is 1.70 and still not blooming.

The preflower confirms its a female but it has yet to flower.(I will get some cuttings soon)

Some burnt tips

gallery_22915_6022_1357132.jpg

I have lowered the dose to 1ml/L for the Hindu pot despite the fact that she is still growing vigorously and producing lots of resin.

The blueberry is also fattening quite nicely

gallery_22915_6022_2943475.jpg

The 707 is getting near uncontrollable and I'll have to trim her soon.

gallery_22915_6022_2010044.jpg

The lavender I have decided will stay but I will not pay too much attention to her.

I topped my mint plant and she also recovered nicely

gallery_22915_6022_1617167.jpg

The last harvest was 3 weeks ago and the plant yielded 11 grams dry

The buds

gallery_22915_6022_1140803.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_421650.jpg

I was impressed by her resin production so I revegged her

gallery_22915_6022_3345601.jpg

I wish you all a good day and BEE happy

I love it all, but the bee picture is definitely my favorite. I guess on the growing forums you really appreciate the change sometimes! :P

Hi OG,

Quick little update for you all.

(WARNING!! I broke my phone and have gotten and old 5S from a friend and the camera doesn't focus.

First off: The Blueberry by DP is my favorite between the two autoflowers this summer.

She is getting nice and thick and smelling absolutely amazing.

gallery_22915_6022_65808.jpg

The complete auto-side looks like this

gallery_22915_6022_1411571.jpg

The hindu kush which isn't autoflower is getting HUGE, its about 1m70 now and I had to tie the top sideways.

gallery_22915_6022_862591.jpg

The critical is also going strong

gallery_22915_6022_511631.jpg

Now the 707

gallery_22915_6022_132403.jpg

Its dusk here so leaves are hanging all about

The Lavender

gallery_22915_6022_866990.jpg

You will have noticed leave damage on almost every photo.

This is because I have a caterpillar infestation.

Yesterday I sprayed some pyrethrum solution on the vegging plants as the autos only have about 2 weeks to go.

I also still have a thai haze auto which I also transplanted into a smart-ish pot.

gallery_22915_6022_360118.jpg

The cuttings are also still growing like kale

gallery_22915_6022_1045523.jpg

I went to Amsterdam the past weekend and got myself a nice poster

gallery_22915_6022_254379.jpg

I also had my first experience with 10x Salvia Extract which was pretty amazing but lasts only about 15-20 minutes.

My kitty also wanted to wish you a nice day!! :)

gallery_22915_6022_488459.jpg

 

Until the next time.. Peace out Opengrow

Bacillus Thuringiensis is what you need against catapilars. I use dipel for this but i got this trough work. But im sure you can get your hands on it with the help of google.

 

It stops the catas from eating as soon as they ingest BT and kills them in a couple of days. BT is harmless for humans or other animals.

In your first post, the plant you weren't proud of...

 

I've had that happen to plants. It happens here when a plant goes into flower but the lighting is for veg and the buds start stretching and not producing tricombs. I had 14 6' tall plants that did that a few years ago.

 

We call it Gone Squirrel. If it goes squirrel like that only thing it's good for is feeding the squirrels.

Hi OG

I'm in the last two weeks of my autoflowers and it seems as harvest comes the other plants will start their flowering period.

I took some photos with my potato for you guys.

I have however got the close up pictures through a jewelers loupe so they are clear-ish.

First off the Blueberry #1

gallery_22915_6022_720410.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_768125.jpg

Blueberry #2

gallery_22915_6022_582379.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_929452.jpg

Blueberry #3

gallery_22915_6022_1034575.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_1170899.jpg

And the Hindu Kush are next, NOTE a single Hindu Kush is not autoflowering but photoperiod

Hindu Kush #1

gallery_22915_6022_626113.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_1182221.jpg

Hindu Kush #2 (the foxtail pheno, extreme foxtail but very nice trichome production)

gallery_22915_6022_767602.jpg

gallery_22915_6022_420681.jpg

And finally I have a quiz.

Who can guess which plant/strain has these types of buds

gallery_22915_6022_673519.jpg

 

Greetings to all

Hi OG,

A little update on the 707 in the 100 Gallon pot

She is getting absolutely HUGE

Check it out

gallery_22915_6022_1619946.jpg

She has about 30 main branches which will be filled with sweet, sweet nugs over 9 weeks

gallery_22915_6022_1998280.jpg

I also have some nice water lily's growing in the pond

gallery_22915_6022_1051534.jpg

And a last photo from afar, I am very happy with her performance.

gallery_22915_6022_1067128.jpg

She is very bushy and grew about 40cm in height in the last 2,5 weeks.

I've been smelling her regularly and the odor is to die for.

It's been quite wet here the last few weeks so I haven't watered her at all.

Today I placed some top dressing supermix as it was forecasted to rain later on.

Another update on this plant when blooming begins.

 

This has been Vasco in the garden...

Peace out everybody. :lol:

Vasco, she's a beauty. Have you thought about using the pond for a aquaponics set up. Maybe a diy octopot to feed from the pond?
