Getting a place holder to start sharing my grow log.
details:
I run 3 tents
2x2x3 with cfls for clones, seedlings and small moms
2x2x4 with a 100 watt hlg 4k led panel
4x4 gorilla tent with a HLG 550 rspec for flowering.

I grow in soil but I’m not loving it yet and/or haven’t sorted it yet. Promix BX mixed with FFOF

biobizz nute lineup for nutes

fabric Grow bags 1/3/5 gallons

Current challenge is in veg, not sure if the led is overkill and/or if I don’t have my soil/nute routine isn’t right. Plants seem to struggle in veg and take off in flower.

Here are some pics of what is in flower / soon to be harvested now.

Feedback and suggestions are always wel

I’m super intrigued by the idea of running some things that are great for the head and are highly unlikely to hit the Commerical market - I wanna find “that Sativa high” and here is where I’m looking so far.

Beans taking a bath tonight before getting the “fall” Sativa experiments going

* 3 Mekong High cut x Jalabad Star #1 reg - kind cabana member)
* 3 Asian Beauty x Puna
* 3 Asian Beauty Reg - Lieu Hahn (Vietnamese Black x Nevilles haze) x Vietnamese Black (another kind cabana member)
* 1 Dr Grinspoon fem (Barney’s) -
* 1 Kali Mist fem (serious seeds) - Lineage: Sativas that originate in Colombia, Thailand, and Cambodia and Afghani Indicastrains.
* 1 Super Lemon Haze Fem (green house) - rumored to be Jack Herrer x Lemon skunk, not ssh - more of a hybrid but should place nice with the stretchy nld girls

The slh was a “pick and mix” fem from attitude - hopefully it breaks the soil. Grinspoon is the first one up.

Outstanding lineup there

the Jalalabad Star is good smoke and they finished by September 30 which is great for 38 degrees latitude eastern Colorado

we have some JS crossed with a G13/Black Widow x C99 which started to flower a week ago so looks like they will also finish out here

do you know the approximate finish times on your crop?.....I’m guessing you will harvest before Christmas....just kidding...but yeah , as you know , some of those sativas grow forever..

it’s good that you have a tent and patience..

I hope they don’t stretch to much for you

These are all first time runs for me - I am super excited for them though as I haven’t toked on any long flowering sativas in recent memory. My current harvest will keep nugs in the jars so I’ve got all the time in the world.
Yes to the tent and while I don’t intend to veg for more than a few weeks and will top/train them, my LED panel in the tent could be hung vertically on the side wall to give them more room.

I too am a sativa lover. I have grown Dr. Grinspoon before and just received some more seeds in the mail. The strangest looking pot plant that I have ever grown. Really liked the smoke.

Thank you for stopping in AladinSane - I’m all ears on tips for the Grinspoon as it’s a first run for me. How long did you veg for and what types of training kept things in line, I prefer topping to a lot of LST etc... but I’m open. Did you post pics?

Great looking grow. I love me some HLG also!

I’ve had troubles vegging with the HLG100 in roughly the same area. Plants grow slow, leaves are pale green and droopy. Some twisted even. Luckily my tent is a 2 in 1 so I took down the divider and shelfs to make it a 2x3x4 instead of a 2x2x4 and it’s helped a ton. Plants look happy and growing quickly again. In hindsight I think the HLG65 would have been a better choice for this size space.

Strange you are having issues in veg. Everything in my veg tent is on automatic pilot. So much so I sometimes forgot to water and feed them. I have done both 18/6 and 24 hrs of light and can't tell a difference. To much water maybe???/

thank you for sharing this, that is exactly what I’ve been seeing and I’m convinced it’s the light. I was debating on switching to T5s or going with a 3x3 tent, seems like the extra space is the ticket. To be fair to HLG, they say flower in 2x2 and veg coverage in 3x3. When I bought it I mis-read and thought it was a dimmable driver

I’ve been removing variables as best I can, different soil mixes, feeding (or not feeding), PH, air flow for temp humidity etc... but still the same. I am good about letting them get super light between feedings so I don’t think it’s that. I think it’s just too bright until they have like 6-8 nodes

I made the same mistake with the 100. Could have sworn it had that hidden dimmer on the underside of the driver! It’s been a learning process with these new white light LEDs for me. They are deceptively bright for the power they consume, especially when coming from the old blurple LED.

Decided to go the 65 watt hlg to fix this, got a good deal on it and will find something else to do with the 100
