    I'm starting a new grow. I was thinking about a scrog, but decided to go with topping/lst to keep the cannopy even. Just don't like the idea of my plants being stuck in my closet. Could do individual screens i suppose, but nah...

    Setup: same as last time. 250w hps, 180m3/h inline fan, matching carbon scrubber, passive intake, pc-fan for circulation. Closet measures 60x60x200 cm. I do have two more 70w hps, but since it is summer the temps are allready a bit high, so I will not use them this time unless the weather turns bad. Which, at the moment, it seems to.

    I will raise three girls. One pure power plant, one blue mystic and one strawberry cough. PPP ang bm will be grown in 10l pots with coco and the sc in 10l pot with soil. Sc is from clone (girl of course), others from feminized seeds.

    A few questions. I have only used basic nutes in the past, trying to keep it simple. I now feel confident enough to try some other stuff aswell. I was thinking of getting some pk13/14 since it seems to be the most common additive that people use. Any oppinion on this? There are so many, and I don´t know wich one helps the most.

    I also had some smell issues in late bloom last time. Not much, but I would like it to be 0 smell. So I'm gonna get me one of these vaportronic things. Are they a good copliment to my carbon scrubber or am I just wasting money?

    Oppinions are appriciated.

    I feel so good being back on track again. Basil and peppers are fun too, but it's just not the same. And they are slooooooow...

    Cheers/

    I'm sure i've seen you talking about ia Power Plant pheno on the sativa side with really long side colas from lower branches?
    Mines the same is all :p
    Was it you????
    If it was what seed bank cos i'm sure i'm noticing a trend, anyway, sorry, your thread.

    Anywho as far as nutes i did the same and kept it simple first time round with good results then switched onto PK 13/14 and found it ok but not as they instruct to use it.
    I'm now on to
    P1010460.JPG P1010459.JPG
    3ml to every 1L of water and of course your coco A+B.
    :)

    A quick cheeky 2 pics to show off my hard work

    I like the superbud additive and for whatever reason i think it has the edge on the PK 13/14 :p

    Thank you for replying guys! I will go with some pk13!¤ then. That will have to do for this grow, keeping it simple has given me good results in the past.

    newb bud: Yes, it is from seed. And yes, it grows loooong sidebranches, like a sativa. Which it is. But nirvana, where i got them from, has changed their description from pure inbred sativa to some sort of hybrid.

    I knew you were gona say Nirvana, thats the one to have i think, i took some 12 week into flower looking for amber and they just kept swelling. I have a **** good mother of this pheno too, dear girls tough as old boots lol.

    I agree on the keeping it simple too, all i've needed as yet is the standard A+B and an additive.
    If you go with the PK 13/14 you may want to think of a little booster of something else towards the end of flower but thats entirely up to you :D

    I have grown 4 seeds before I think, and they finished between 9 and 10 weeks. Mostly milky, but a fair amount of amber. Hope This one finishes early aswell, I'm sad to say I'm not a patiant man...

    Will take a booster into consideration.

    Oh yeah, your plants are wicked! Those colas are huge! I'm pleased with the yield mine gave aswell.

    I bump my thread since i did not get an answer to my question. Is the vaportronic any good or would it just be a waste of money. I will not use it alone, my carbon scrubber is still running.

    Also, if I decide to get it, what would be the best way to istall it? Outside of my closet or inside? I imagine putting it inside by my passive intake would be the most efficient way to go, but i'm not sure at all.

    Here are some pics of my small ones. The bm and ppp popped out of the ground about 10 days ago. I got the sc as a clone from a friend. It was not in the best state, but it's getting better. I just topped it after being in new soil for a week. I think it will turn out allright.

    Oh yeah, for those of you that perhaps followed and remember my last gj, it was not strawberry kush I was growing, it was strawberry cough, the same as this one, but different seed, thank god. It was a hermie.

    Another question. I veg under a 250w hps. Worked great in the past, so i don't see any reason to buy a mh or lots of cfl's. But what distance would you have at this point? I just lowered it to about 25cm, or 10 inches. But I gpt a feeling my seedlings would like a little less light for another week or so. Can it kill them right away or should i be cool and just watch how they react and take appropriate measures if they show signs of feeling bad?

    I'd just keep an eye on em, my clones were rooted, vegged and flowered under hps until i built the new veg room and had good results.

    I'm using 250w CFL now though set at a few inches, CFL's genuinly do produce better plants ( for the veg stage ) but your much better off with the big proper grow CFL's than 20 crud house lights.

    Anyway,,, Vaportronic? Dont even know what it is :huh: lol

    Carn't coment on pics cos carn't see em, **** ruddy server lol

    This is a vaportronic, works like a ozonegenerator but with some sort of chemical instead of ozone.

    Hmm, come to think of it, my gib-ballast is supposed to work with both hps and mh. A mh bulb is not that expensive. Perhaps i should buy me one of those.

    Thanks for input!

    take care/

    Gonna use this thread to post pics of my grow and just go bla bla bla... It will not be a well updated, thought out growjournal, but if a mod think it fits better in that forum, please move it.

    pic one - pure power plant, nirvana femmed, coco
    pic two - blue mystic, nirvana femmed, coco
    pic three - strawberry cough, cloned female, soil

    Looking ok I guess. The ppp's and bm's leafes are slightly folded at the edges. Think I might have my lamp a bit too close, it's about 25 cm from the tops. Might be too much for these small ones, A bit over two weeks since they popped i think.

    The bm is smaller than the ppp. Are indicas slower than more sativa dominant strains? Never grown an indica before. I currently feed these two with canna coco at half recommended strength. This might be a bit high as well, but no burns yet, so i'll continue.

    The sc was in a pretty lousy state when I got it, but she's getting better. Allready been topped! A bit pale after twoo weeks in new soil, 3,5l pot, so i gave her some nutes today. Might have been a mistake, will have to check closely, but so farso good.

    I have set up some goals this time. Aiming for 40g/plant, which will result in 36g more weed than last time, a respectable improvement. I will be more carefull with flushing to get a better taste from my ppp. It was not the best last time around.

    Well, you can talk here aswell, see you around/

    Which end of the scale?
    On my charts and bottles it sais 20-40ml.
    I dont usually go above 25ml on full grown 5 footers.
    Plants look well to me mate :D pic three may be a little yellow if i was being picky :p
    My opinion would be that she looks hungry for nutes, just my un-educated opinion but it is working for my girls so far.
    Will advise however that i have no previous experience with seeds just clones :peace:

    ATB mate :aok:

    I give 20ml/10l water.

    I don't think you need to be picky to find the last plant a bit pale, but she's getting greeen as wee speak. Oh, how I love this.

    My sc seems to love getting nutes, even though she is rather small. Roots are starting to come out of the bottom of the pot, rapid growth i would say. Will transplant to a 10l bucket in about a week.

    Hwe do you dispose of your runoff from coco? I was thinking of buying some sort of tap and use that. It's quite a hassle to lift the pot from plate and empty it, especially when the plants get bigger. Otherwise i love coco. Makes growing easy.

    Take care/

    Things are getting better all the time. My seedlings are so happy and my sc-clone is getting greener. Soon she will look like a normal plant! The bm is still behind the ppp, but she has not stalled in any way, just not that fast.

    I'm gonna celebrate by smoking my last piece of hasch.

    1 - bm
    2+3 - ppp
    4 - sc
    5 - my last piece...

    Ok, a bit more then 3 weeks since seeds popped out of the ground and almost 3 weeks since I put my clone in the 3,5L pot. It was repotted like 4 days ago into a 10L bucket and she is loving it! The colours on the photo are a bit strange, you will have to trust me when i say she has a very healthy green colour.

    1+2 - My blue mystic. Looks like she will be a natural bush. Thinking about letting her grow naturally. I have never done it, and this is a good candidate since she stays low.

    3+4 - I topped my ppp 2 days ago and i think she is responding well. Will top her once more and do a bit of tie-down before 12/12 in two weeks.

    5 - SC is looking better. There will be lots of tops on this one. Straight lst on her from now on.

    Temps are a bit better. 23-24 lights of and 29-30 lights on. But this will change with the weather. RH is good for veg, but i would like it to drop when they start to bud up, but that will happen i think.

    Take care/
