Strains: Love Stash (x3) and Tranquil Hashplant (x4) 

Tent 1: 2’ x 2.5’ with 2 ~60 watt cobs 

Tent 2: 3’ x 3’ with a 260 watt kingbrite QB 

Coast of Maine soil with extra perlite  

Maybe a dash of organic dry amendments before flower 

RO water with dried Coconut water and Fish Sh!t and the occasional kelp meal or frass tea

seeds just got wet this week and I’m planning to get them sex tested (looking out for 4/20 deals) and cull males asap

ive been growing autos for about a year with mixed results... I stunted about half. Currently on week 3 of my first photoperiods: Putang x Spiced Jack bred by @buddinggardeners and everything is going great so far 🙂

Small update:  I purchased a 10 pack of plant sexing kits from Farmer Freeman during their 420 promotion.  I have 10 seedlings in the tent and sent samples  of each in last week.  Hoping to get the Female / Male results this week. Males will be culled and females will be transplanted from plastic cups to 1 gallon grow bags. 

Love Stash  x 2

Tranquil Hash Plant x 4  

Bodega Punch (East Coast Cultivars) x 3 

Bruces Ball Sack (Dojo Seed co) x 1

I'll post a photo once I get the sexing results. 

Happy growing everyone!

Sexing results are in and these are the females:

Love Stash x 1

Tranquil Hashplant x 3 

Bodega Punch x 2 

Bruces Ball Sack x 1 

 

One tranquil Hash plant was transplanted outdoors to a 20 fabric grow bag. 

The rest are staying inside for now. 5 are potted up to 1 gallon grow bags and 1 (Bodega Punch) is in a half filled 3 gallon grow bag with the sides rolled down. 

I found a couple discounted bags of fox farms ocean forest at a local garden center so I’m giving it a try for at least the veg stage.  Extra perlite added at about 1 scoop perlite for every 3 scoops ocean forest.

Love Stash (bottom right) and Bruce’s Ballsack (top left) are about 10 days younger than the rest. Top right and bottom left are both Bodega Punch.

Here is one of Putang x Spiced Jack at about 9-10 weeks flowering. Plenty of room for improvement but I’m really happy with how my first photoperiod run has gone.

Crowed 2’ x 2.5’ veg tent. Right side are 2 Bodega Punch. Middle top is a defoliated Tranquil Hashplant. Top left is Ninja Fruit x Ninja Smash aka Bruce’s Ballsack. Bottom right is Love Stash and tiny sprout is Charlottes Angel CBD.  I plan to up pot from 1 gallon to 3 gallon fabric grow bags, veg for a bit more, then up pot to 5-7 or maybe 10 gallons bags for flower.

I spent some time yesterday casually reading about other people’s experience growing with microbe supplements. There were a few anecdotes praising fresh earth worm castings as having a superior level of microbiology happening vs the retail offerings so I decided to harvest a cup from the red wiggler worm bin   I started in March.  I made a slurry and split it up amongst the plants in the veg tent.

Yea, I know i definitely notice more soil activity with farm fresh vs anything off a shelf at the grow store.  

 

Looking off to a great start, and looking forward to following along bud!

Started potting up from 1 gallon to 7 gallon vivosun grow bags.   

the soil I’m using is:

1.5 cu ft bagged mushroom compost from Lowe’s 

.75 cu ft rice hulls 

 

then each 7 gallon pot of this mix got 1 cup of:

green sand 

dolomite lime 

coast of Maine stonington blend plant food 5-2-4

down to earth rose and bud 4-8-4

kelp meal 1-0.1-2

 

i potted up 2 before work today and will finish up the others tonight or tomorrow morning 

I’ll upload some pics once everyone is in the big pots and looking more photogenic
