Hello fellow opengrowers :)

It has been some time since i last posted a journal here and now i feel i have been quite for to long so i thought its best to share again. If new growers are reading this i encourage you to post journals of your grows and my reasons for this is it was forums that kept me in that learning state as i was always busy reading and learning from other mapito growers and also as i was documenting my grow, it was giving me that extra boost to stay on top of my grow and get every job done that needs done as when you have beeen growing for as long as i have the enthusiasm can go at times but if you are coming on the forums every day other growers will inspire you to try new things in your room and this is the only way to really learn trial and error, i can remember when i thought i couldnt hit numbers like a gpw as back then it seemed so far away yet growers like Limbo Holland, Eskobar and other growers from Hennepedesk made it look so easy but i stayed at it after every grow and alot of disappointing results it would always motivate me to do better on my next one i believe this is the attitude that is needed to get good results the knowledge and experience will come in time. 

So this will be my grow journal i hope to speak with some old friends and new ones :) i will document it from start to finish you will see the good, bad and the ugly hopefully it will be a good one for yous all :verrygood.

I will post pictures tomorrow and explain how i do things now. 

Hope you enjoy the show.

Now how i prepare the mapito I'm not as strict as i used to be with this part any more but that came from trial and error.

1. After i have harvested plants i remove the root ball and any leafs.

2. I pour about 20 litres of water with h202 added and ph4.5 over each crate. I read run off of ec if high i dump water then pour another 20l over crates i let this soak overnight.

3. If ec is reading round 1.0 to 1.2 I'm happy with this so i dump water out.

4. I push a crate down on mapito by standing in it to get excess water out the wet and dry hoover comes in handy to hoover this out also take reading of ph and ec of this it will be more accurate anything up to 1.5ec i will allow but 1.2 would be better.

5. Break up old roots just by putting hand in and turning it up if ive used enzymes all the way through the grow i leave all roots in there you can remove big ones if you like tho. Now the mapito is also fluffed up so good to plant in.

6. Now i plant i like to use plants grow in small 0.7l pots of coco as i grow bigger plants i grow 1 plant per tub.

7. Water each plant with 2l of nutrient solution at 1.2ec tap water 0.2ec + calmag til 0.4ec then a&b till 1.1ec then i ph down to 5.5 add enzymes and superthrive ec rises to 1.2.

8. What determines what ec and ph i water with depends on what the run off after washing the mapito is reading if its reading 1.2ec and under 6.0ph i give 1.2ec 5.5ph if it reading higher ec and ph then il bring ec and ph down to compensate.

Now some pics :)

Very curious to see what the following weeks will bring.

How do you deal with the heat of the 4 x 1000W? Do you vent it outside? Do you have some kind of lung room? I am very curious how you handle your environment. Any infos on how you handle humidity and temperature would be greatly appreciated :)

Best wishes for your grow!!

Great set up : ) how much h202 do you add ?

Thanks ifish hope you stick around :) just what the bottle recommended for flushing systems i think it was 750ml per 100l :o the 5l bottle didnt last long.

Hi RoofTop, i just upgraded to a 3250m3 box fan witch should deal with summer months as my ducting is only like a meter from fan to chimney where i out take and no bends in ducting. Ive never really bothered with humidity ive had it as low as 30s and still produced gpw VPD is something i would like to play around with now see how it affects grow as long as humidity not high thats the main thing. Lights on at night keep temps usually 28c to 30c then when lights off i use blow heater in room if needed so temps dont follow below 23c i find a 5c swing is optimal always best grows done in this range.

Hey, thanks for answering. Do you also use an intake fan? Otherwise your tent is probably bent inwards a lot, no?

Also it is very interesting to read about your temp and RH as it is not in the optimum range as they say in theory but you still get good gpw results. At the moment I am looking into dehumidifiers and split air conditioning units so thats where my interest comes from. Just trying to optimize things as much as I can and always trying to learn something new. :) I would love to see some RH and temp numbers as your grow proceeds. Best wishes

No intake never have used one i always have passive air coming in from either under door or window on latch then i leave zips slightly open at bottom of tent lets in plent of fresh air :)

Yea i see alot of growers playing around with trying to dial in whats meant to be perfect temps / humidity i think do what works for you and for me this way is working maybe in future i will play around with the vpd :)

Hope that helps.

: )

Normally once cuts rooted i pot up into 0.7l pots of coco keep them under t5 for upto 2 weeks then pot up into mapito normally only need to veg 5-7days max for 6 plants per 1.2m under 1000w and yes id top sometimes before potting up or sometimes just when potted up depends how big plant is. I always suppercrop all the way through the grow up until stretch stops. Yes one plant per crate help keep plant numbers down :)

Have you ever yielded 1 on 1 with this set up? 

Do you mean GPW? If so yes i find 1000w per 1.2 with 6 plants works really well with little pre veg.

Looking great. They are about to explode and fill that tent.

What size is your tent, might have missed it above. Looks like an 8’x8’x8’....that would be awesome to have one that size.

Yeah, looking pretty good.

 

1000 watt or 600/750 DE Gavita's in there?????????????????? I also ONLY run Gavita's, I run the 600/750 DE .  If these are the 750's what is your hang height???

Once I had 1 grow on the Gavita's, I sold off all my other 400-600 watt MH's and HPS lights, bulbs, ballasts, never have regretted it!!! Gavita for the win!

 

BTW...............NO WORRIES about not having enough light in THAT TENT!!!!!!

Hey JetDro,

Yes the gavitas are really something ain't they since I started using them about  4 years ago I haven't used any other light in fact I'm still using the one i got that long ago now :)

Yes these are the 1000w ones the tent is only 2.0m high as room only slightly higher would prefer the 2.4m tent for the gavitas but i make it work by pinching plants to keep a certain hieght. Yes light hits all of the grow area every bud will be fully developed if i manage to keep at all one level <_<
