BGL-LSD Journal

Thanks for looking in. I have a new 4x8’ grow tent. If you followed or saw my other threads you know I have 7 different strains going at the moment. I had seed sprouting trouble and had to plant the last seeds of 3 strains I had to finish a replacement order.

So I am going to grow 8 plants in the 4x8’tent. The GL-LSD and Maui x LSD are around 4 weeks old. The 2 GL plants and 1 LSD are in 5 gal pots with soil and I will be using FF Trio and CalMag. Those are the plants I will have in this journal. The other 5 plants will be in a separate journal and grown with Kind Soil.

So back to the GL - LSD. 1 GL sprouted 3-3-19 and the other GL and the 1 LSD sprouted on 3-4-19. I will use 3-3-19 as sprout date for all plants.

I am going to look up some pictures of beginning and start from there. I hope to get them and stats up to know by this weekend.

Good Luck RAP. Just finishing up #4, started #5 (New mother plants) and planning grow 6 for the summer. I think I have way more fun growing than anything! :slight_smile:

Eight plants will get pretty busy! Especially at trim time!!! :pleading_face::grimacing:
If you are going to be on that pace maybe a bowl trimmer? I picked one up and I am sooooooo glad I did.

I will definitely look into that. @Reticence Any links to a decent trimmer? I am trimming buds now on the Maui-NL grow I just finished. That was just 2 plants but scrogged to 3.5’ x 7.5’. I just got home from work so going to move the plants now and take down the 4x4 tent and put up the 4x8 tent. I will take pics for both journals later after move is completed.

Ok 4x8’ tent is up. I did it solo. took longer than with 2 people but doable. I have the QB260XL’s on the left side and the 600w HPS on the right side. Right now all the plants are still under the QB’S and I am going to see if I can maintain temps with the HPS on. It is in an enclosed vent hood and hooked up to the charcol filter and The fan on speed 4.

The 2 Bergmans Gold Leaf are in 5 gal orange pots and the LSD in the 5 gal black pot.

I plan on moving them under the 600w HPS for their grow in a day or so.

Do you use it for popcorn buds or for all your buds?

I am going to use a dose of FF Trio tomorrow and then top the 3 plants in a day or so.

My grows are for personal use so I use if for almost all of my buds. I do hand trim some for giving to others in need. (Or I just feel like doing a bit of manual trimming)
Do you FIM or do the regular top? I do both, but lean more towards FIMing.

I generally just top. I have not tried Fimming yet. My try it to see. I have seen the pics and descriptions but still as I have not tried it yet not sure I 100% understand it.

In theory it doesn’t stunt the plant as much to FIM. I use my thumbnail to FIM. I have read that a straight cut can take longer to heal than just pinching off the top for a FIM or regular top for that matter.
With FIM you either get it right or end up with a regular top! Hard to go wrong.

I’ll give it a try. I always pinch when I top so that’s good.

Ok I moved them to their own side for their grow and put under 600w HPS.

Thanks I have read all of yours and @SilentHippie journals over and over for inspiration. This will be my first FF Trio usage so I am sure to need help. The other side of the tent is my first Kind soil grow.
