    I have a real mixed bunch of genetics this time around.
    Currently vegged for two months under 130W CFL and flipping to flower under 600W HPS in a couple days.
    2 x Cream Caramel
    8 x Bagseed


    Additionally I now have a fresh supply of beans from Sensible Seeds-a batch of which have now germinated and are two weeks old today.
    2x Melon Gum
    2x Blue Mataro
    1x Landysh
    1x Lost Coast Hashplant
    1x Lucky No Slevin

    In two months when my current vegged plants are harvested I will put these in to flower. Rolling harvest. Roll ON!

    Are the plants in front of the first pic the ones you vegged for two months? I cant tell how big they are but wont 10 plants be a lot for a 600w? They look pretty healthy. Wish you luck with them.

    Yes thats right Lesso- the 2 month old plants are nearly 30cm high now. I suspect you are correct that 10 maybe too many -however I figured on a percentage of them may turn out to be male - which would leave some elbow room for the remaining girls. If it gets tight for space I may have to cull further - not ideally what I want to do . Thanks!

    Thanks Johnnybuds! I had a minor infestation of whitefly which threatened their health for awhile - but all under control now as you can see - I used Chef Derek Butts organic insecticide recipe which took instant effect! I can certainly recommend his organic formula to anyone with insect pest problems.

    Sure Rose! The recipe is really simple - The ingredients are organic castille soap mixed with neem oil with a 3:1 ratio of soap to oil. Mix and add to water and spray evenly over plants once, then again a couple days later. I mixed 15mls of soap to 5mls neem oil into 1 litre of water.
    I use Dr. Bronner's liquid soap with peppermint as Derek Butts recommends because the peppermint really repels the bugs . Here is the youtube video with his directions

    This should work great with any soft bodied insect infestation.

    I can't tell you how relieved I was to get rid of my whitefly problem as I am only days out from switching to bloom and I wanted to eliminate the pests before the switch

    Thank you. I hope that did the trick. I haven't found white fly to be horrible...Looking forward to your grow. Us organic folks have to stick together.

    I had the whitefly in my first grow. They are a pain in the neck. I used a foliar spray soap and it seemed to work.

    Into week two of flower now.

    No evidence yet of males amongst my bagseed plants..It feels like things went out of control for a bit when I switched. Some plants took nutrients well and others not so much. Also some heat stress occurred in a few -until I got my airflow and temps under better control.


    Transplanted my premium seedlings into compost and worm castings and have them hardening off outside. The wind in the last couple days has given them a bashing but they are taking it well.

    Yep thats right Mountain209man-I don't have a separate veg tent so im harnessing free light plus taking advantage of good spring conditions -warming up and regular showers - the constant airflow will strengthen the trunk which I tend to prefer to do along with some LST eventually. With them outside for now at least it's almost zero work for me - let nature take care I say
