well i have another 4 strains poping up right now,
3 auto and 1 indica strain,
so i might start a new auto g.j soon,
as for the veg shelf, i moved some of the plants out of there and into the flower room,just my nl x big bud and white rhino,
the la .c is popping its head above the soil and most of my auto strains are also up,
ive ordered some new stuff for my grow room,
im getting 4 400w
33 square metres of mylar, for $12(a good buy indeed!)
a ruck fan 280m/hour and carbon filter
2 200w eco lite 6400kcfl's
and a vac sealer!
yea you could say that mental,lol
i cant wait to get the bits myself!
ill have much more peice of mind when i have a carbon filter in there!
and ill have enough mylar to cover everything in the grow room!expept the plants!
ill have the autos running on the bottom shelf, below my veg shelf,
its about 2 and 1/2 foot high so should be just enough for my autos
i think ill breed them this time so i can have a few seeds!
im gona go with 1 200w 6400k cfl and
1 x 150w 6400k cfl
and change them for a 400w hps for the last 2-3 weeks,
and i think ill use the new super special bio in-riched soil for this auto grow,
and ill put the soil to the test with 2-4 in inriched soil and 2/4 in normal soil with the same conditions, and see what the results are!
should be an intresting grow!
im not sure what to call the new g.j ,
any ideas guys?
but i just have a bit of time on my hands!!
well if i dont get any better ideas i just might call it that!
as for the plants,
they are all looking well enough today,
i think one of my kc 36 clones tryed to flash its wang at me today!
and if it does turn out to be a wang, it will be out the door so fast!!
today is watering day, i water every 2 days or so,
today in gave my mothers about 800ppm of nutes, and they seem to like it!
the clones are not that far away from sexing, i think by next week they should be all sexed,
the other plants are loving the extra space since i moved the non rooting plants into my flower room!
heres some pics for you guys!
first pic is of my veg shelf with added seedlings!
the second pic is of my big bud mother, lookin good!
pic 3 is of under my veg shelf, where im going to start my auto grow,
after a bit of cleaning up and some mylar,it should be perfect!
pic 4 is a better pic of the veg shelf/new auto area,
and pic 5 is of my super freaky haze x skunk branch, its growing crazy,
has anyone seen anything like this?not worryed just looks weird!
i was out in my grow room today,
and my clones have started to flower,:dancing:
my bubblish no 1 is a female! its the bigest one of them all!
great bushey growth, this is deff a keeper so far!
i repotted its clone, and put it back into my veg room i think ill put it outside in a few weeks,
my bubblish no 2 is a male
but it is a fantastic grower, i was surprised it turned male on me,
ill be keeping its pollen for breeding projects later,
i have two male kc 36's and 1 female and one still to be sexed,
the female is good and strong, looks like it will make a good mother,
one of the male kc 36 is a monster it looks like another good stud!
the rest of the plants are not developed enough to sex,
maybe in a few days,
the mother plants are well up and ready to give loads of cuts,
just have to wait untill i have all my strains sexed before i take my cuts!
i put the male clones into a plastic bag sealed at the bottom but air holes at the top,and put them back into the bubbler,
to let it develop a bit more,
and the plants they turnedout to be males have been put into my flower room, but just for a week or so,
just before they start to put out balls!
your plan sounds good! JMO but an easier way to collect the pollen is to take 1 or 2 clones from the tops of your best male about 12" clones with 5-8 nodes is good. use the best male if you want short tight plants. then use the male that has tigthest nodes thats how you start your selective backrosses. but let it flower for a week or so let it build up a little. then clone the tops of the plant your using. put them in a cup of water under some fluros for the same 12/12 light period.
or i have even just put it on a window sill and within another week or 2 there yellow and dropping lots of pollen. i either put tin foil around the base or i got the good lids for my net pots that work well upside down and i collect all the pollen and use a small paint brush to polly lower buds. but as soon as i take the male clones i dispose of the rest of the male. this way there's less chance of accidental pollination. i usually do this on the other side of the house. and when i polly i take the fem i want take it across the house to polly it with the collected pollen. i usually polly a few 3-5 lower branches let it stay there for a few hours then i spray it with water to try and get off extra pollen let it dry and put it in the room to flower. that way i never cross pollinate. and i get about 100 seeds from a few branches and still have most of the bud to burn.
sounds like a good method pothead, thanks for the info,
i was planning to let the best males get close to flowering then take them out of the grow room and put them outside for 12 hours then put them in a drak room, why do you suggest taking a big cutting of the male instrd of just flowering the whole plant, less chance of unwanted pollenation?
right today they plants are going well, i dumped my crapy males and i have kept 1 male kc 36 and 1 bubblish male, both are real good, for males!
the rest of the clones are still sexing, i still have 3 skunk x haze clones to sex, but i was expecting the sativa strains to take longer to sex!
ya its basically just safer less of a chance to cross pollinate.
you can either take the clone like i do. or sometimes i take the whole plant trim up all the bottom of the plant leaving the top 8-10 nodes to give you some pollen.
ok so i was hard at work on these 6 strains
so far all have sexed except the skunk x haze (no suprise there!)
and out of the 18 i germed 15 have sexed and 11 where fem,
so i did very well this time!
so i made clones of all my strong fem mothers,
with about 10 cuts from the bubbllish alone!
i think i took about 25 or so,
i took cuttings mainly because the mothers where getting out of control
and way too high for my veg shelf!
so i cut them down to size!
now my skunk x haze towers above all the others!
so here is some pics i took today,
the first three pics are of my mothers before i took cuts,
look at the third pic notice the perfect weed leaf shadow!
pic 4 and 5 is of the clones left in my bubbler, you can see the 3 skunk x haze in there, nice and big!
pic 6 7 are of my two males bubblish and kc-36 in pic 7 you can see my male kc-36 up[ close,i will be using these for breeding,
pic 8 you can see one of my ak mothers in front and my skunk x haze mother in the back,
and in the last pic you can see my big bud mother showing pre flowers
what do I think...
I think your the man.
I just hope when the time comes my cloning skills are half of what yours are!
and didn't I say something like 12 of them were gonna be fem.
One off isn't to bad for a lama!
yea i have every thing nicely packed in dont i,
well if you think that is good,
make sure you pop back and see what it looks like with my veg shelf 100% full + autos and all my flowering plants!
its gona be crazy
the flower room is about 6x6foot and the veg shelf is about 6x2 foot and about 4foot high, i also have a shelf below thats 6 x 2foot and 2just over 2 foot height about right for some autos!
im sure you will get the hang and soon master cloning, it just takes getting used to seeing what to expect,actually doing it is super easy!
yea your where only one off! well done,
you'll have to pop over to me to collect your special mystery prize!
i wasd out today checking up,
i started to super crop the white rhinos and nl x big bud's i have in my
it will take them a while to recover but i think it should maxamize my grow potential in a small grow space,
