Hello all, it’s been MONTHS since I’ve been here! I didn’t mean to disappear (and sorry to have missed the Fantasy League), let’s just say I got distracted by a girl . . . ahem
I had 3 great White Widow Auto harvests, and I’m about 4-5 weeks from harvest on my first Gold Leaf. I’ve got it isolated in a trash can grower I made. I’ve got a TaoTronics 24W LED, two 14W 2700K CFLs and two 23W 2700K CFLs attached to the lid. I had to add the CFLs as supplemental because the angle on the TaoTronics is only 30 degrees, so it wasn’t hitting the outer edges. They have a new 36W bulb with a 60 degree spread though, so I’m gonna pick up one of those AND a 12W (they make all 3). The plan is to have 3 Autos going at a time, one month apart, and as they grow, move them up from the 12 to the 24 to the 36 to finish!
And I just flipped my SOG/SCROG into flower last week. It’s a single Gold Leaf in the middle with 7 clones from 6 weeks in that I grew another 4 (including rooting time) before hitting the bloom cycle. Only one clone didn’t make it, and I think it was poor choice of medium. I used peat moss and perlite, and I think it burned it up, too acidic. Next time I’ll just do clones like seeds, peat pellets and then straight into the pot after sprout (or rooting, for clones).
Finally, I started 3 Maui Wowie seeds I got from a friend (I traded my last 3 WWA seeds). I made this little incubator from an old walker. I just put some white cardboard on the sides and have one of those Mylar car window reflectors draped over the top for the back and easy access flip up front. The light is just a 4-socket outlet with four 13W 6500K CFLs (56W total) with a disposable aluminum baking pan for the hood.
It’s great to be back and share my grow and READ and catch up on everybody else’s grow! I know there are a couple of SCROGs I was watching . . .
