Hello everyone. Im gonna keep a journal of my second grow. I have a grow-closet that is 6'h 4'w 3'd. I will be using a 400w HPS for lighting and a flood and drain system with clay pebbles. This will be my second grow and i will be attempting to SCROG train them this time. I am using feminized Northern Lights seeds.

thanks everyone. I cant wait for them to reach the screen so i can start training them. Might be 2 or 3 more weeks yet. Ive just switched them to Grow A + B nutrients, so they should take off.

Nice avatar, that looks like some juicy bud. I hope mine turn out like that.

ok here is another couple of picures. Its now day 13 since germination, and the plants are about 2'' tall with 4 nodes, Mary's leaves now have 7 fingers while Jane has only 5 (wierd)

Grow-room has been holding up well, temperatures staying at about 83 - 87f. The ph of the resovoir has been very stable, i havent had to alter it for about 4 days now, which is odd for this type of system because of the flood and drain cycle the ph is normally all over the place. It might be because im using filtered water this time.

Yeah dude, I didn't find the herm until after I took off an early bud and discovered seeds. It was then I started reading about the genetics of fem seed and decided against using again. Here's a pic -- Dutch Passion NL Fem from Heaven's Stairway. Sad, b/c they were looking so sugarcoated! (pic)

Not to detract any from your skill. You plants look great. Those seedlings were choice looking thick and waxy. Just a caution.

I still think NL is the bomb, but will probably do 'regular' next time.

Bad news im afraid, im not going to have enough time to SCROG this grow, as i will be leaving in the next few months. So im not going to be able to let them fill the screen. Im just going to let them grow naturally, and as NL is a short plant by nature i should be ok for space. Here is some updated pictures, they are now on day 16 since germination. Is this a good grow rate, could i start flowering them soon? any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Gats.

Yeah, I never agreed with the selfing thing myself. they call it "sex reversal" but to me its an overglorified hermie. Anytime there is male and female on the same plant, its a hermie IMHO. They even say NOT to use fem'd seeds for breeding as the hermie trait will express itself in future generations.


Hey Stoned,
I would not flower any sonner than week 5. Week 3-4 is critical IMHO. and inducing flower is a form of stress Indoors, not like OD where its gradual change. IMHO
