Jackie Daytona's 4th White Widow Grow

Hello!
Well I’m still at it. This time starting my 4th grow in a year and 4th grow ever.
All plants are ILGM White Widow photos. I am going with 9 this time. Six in the 4x8 and 3 in the 4x4.
The plan is to keep them shorter and more well trained So I don’t have a repeate of this debacle over here .
They are going into 5 gallon pots with Promix-Hp and I will be using Jacks 3-2-1 formula with silica blast, recharge and I may pickup some Impello Tribus. I will add some xtreme mykos when I pot them up as well. Just using regular tap with an rv filter on. Was doing Ro but I cant see a difference since stopping and my EC/PPM seems fine.

Here they are in all their glory.


I put them in a cup of regular tap water with a couple drops of peroxide a few days ago and stuck them in one of the empty 2x2s with an HLG 65. 24hrs later they all had tails.

They then went into cups with distilled water Premoistened Promix-hp and I mixed in some xtreme mykos. Then into one of the 2x2 tents that I moved to a different room. Still in flower here in the main grow and the dehumidifier blows directly at the 2x2 area making it a bit to warm. I just didn’t want to deal with the promix drying out super fast and fighting RH or any of that.
I put them in a try with a dome for a little more RH and warmth as the ac is running 12hrs a day here for the plants in flower and I want to keep these babys warm. I have heat matts but i dont trust them as I had some issues my first grow with them drying out the medium when the sensor wasn’t reading right.

And day later they were above ground.
I will keep them under 24hrs of light for a week or so which is yet to be determined at this point. Need to go back and look at my notes for grow 1-2 which were both from seed.
When they are ready they will go into the big tents under the kingbright 240s 4 or 5 inthe 4x8 and 2 in the 4x4. 3000-3500k . AC infintiy exhausts and intakes and basically the same as the last grows.
I really want shorter plants with really defined main branches and less crowded larfy growth. After all we are growing flowers and the added biomass is a headache for RH and air movement later.

Just want to say I would never have been able to do any of this without the great tutelage and advice from the awesome growers here. Thank you.
Thats about it for now. Thanks for taking a look.
Going to tag a few folks if you don’t mind.

here they are 4 days after breaking ground.


Pulled the dome and put them on elevators. I put a wet t-shirt in the tent to keep the RH up and small fan blowing above them to keep air moving and make them just barely twitch.
Rh in the 80s temps between 75-80
still under 24 hrs light with the hlg-65 about 16-18"
Once they toughen up a bit I will probably lower it to keep stretching to a minimum and observe how they react.
I turned on the acInfinity 4" to the “1” setting to draw some air in and out of the tent. Just to keep things fresh. I also put a heater outside the tent to keep it warm with that air being drawn in while the ac is running for the main grow. . I will probably check on it a dozen more times to make sure but I do have two sensor push units in the tent.
Just watering with Ph’d 5.8-6 filtered tap right now.
Ill probably let them go another 3 days before I begin feeding. Maybe till The second set of leaves are bigger.
I know a lot of people say I can start jacks full strength but I will probably start at 1/3 strength. Last time I went full strength on seedlings they did not like it.
I will also add a touch of recharge in there and a little silica.
Put a few mosquito bits in as I have seen a few gnats buzzing around. I will water them in next watering. I also put a couple yellow stickies in there. I live in gnat central with a million gnats just outside so and the bugs are coming out full force this year. I caught a few beatles in the main grow room already.
Anyway thats about it.

Day 12. Some good growth this last week. Ac infinity on 1 setting and a small fan indirectly blowing making them twitch. RH around 55 and temps I try and keep between 72-76F. HLG 65 @ maybe 14"? Not sure haven’t measured it. They did start to get a little stretch after the first week and when the second set of leaves were big enough I lowered the light.

They got a few days of filtered tap water @ 1/3 strength jacks and some recharge.
Yesterday They got Full strength jacks and about 1ML per gallon of Silica Blast. I plan on slowly increasing the silica as they grow.
Ill probably give them a little recharge next watering.
I had seen a few fungus gnats buzzing around then put the stickies in and added some mosquito bits to the top soil. I also Put some ac filter material over the intake tube and haven’t seen them since.

Now had a two leaves on different plants develop a couple spots. This May have been from water dripping on them or the start of something but I see none of that on any new growth so I am not worrying about it. They should be getting everything they need at this point.

And thats about it for now.
