Monk's 4th: 3 chem dog and 3 gorilla glue

part of the confusion on the soils to me is that the mother earths coco peat soil would let water just run right thru it if you poured it on the soil. i had to use a sprayer to keep water in the soil media. with the super soil it would soak up any water poured on it.

inspecting the plants yesterday gg1 looked like the first plants from last grow. it is turning yellow eating up the leaves. i used only 15ml of buddha grow 4 days ago so i will use more on the others plants as they go thru the beginning flowering.

Ive stumbled upon your journal and was instantly intrigued! I ve set to watch if you dont mind.

May i ask what distance you are running your lights at for seedlings and veg?

4 Likes

yes you are welcome to my journal @DefNSmokn. this is my fourth journal and 4th try at growing. on this try i went to a 2ft four light t5 for my seedlings. i did this because i like to fawn over my seedlings and i have my tents at a friends house now so i needed to do something here at home so i could have more access to the littles. i run 6/2 light schedule. as you can see from pics below that i have about 8 or 10 inches to the seedling. at my veg tent in town i have a sunsystem 315 LEC and run that about 18 inches from top of vegging plants.

sorry for the light splash, it is why i don’t typically take pics of the seedlings.

watered gg1 a gallon at 6.5ph with 20ml buddha grow, 25ml of buddha bloom, hydroguard, regen a root, and fish sh!t that i got a new bottle of today. i dumped out the last of the previous can of fish sh!t because it had about 30ml left in it and it was a year and a half old. btw. i paid 75 bucks for the lil bstard.

watered gg4 a gallon minus one solo cup that i split between cd5 and cd6 at 6.5 ph with 20ml buddha grow, regen a root, fish sh!t, and hydroguard.

Hey @monkman, I see you’re fairly consistent in getting through the seedling stage. What makes you decide on switching to flower?

I’m actually second guessing if I should plant one or two plants in my new big pot… do you control for size?

2 Likes

second question first. i am a firm believer in one plant per pot. what sized pot you got?

first question… on my first 3 grows i went by number of veg days. first grow was 35 or so. second grow was 30 because they were blue dream and i was afraid of them out growing the tent. third grow i let go longer(35 to 50 days) to see how much pot i could get and did run out of room. because of my experience of the first 3 grows i have now decided to go by height. i now have two different height tents, one is 76 inches and the other is 96 inches. for the short one i’m going with 21 inches tall, for the tall one i’m going at 31 to 35 inches tall.

i will try to give some insight though. Amanda at treehouse grows in 5 gallon and 7 gallon pots, but she has a room that she uses for growing not a tent. i have deconstructed each of my pots after i have cut the plant down and have always had room left over for more roots so i think that 3 gallon pots are fine for tents which is what i use. if your pot is bigger than 7 gallons then it should not be used in a tent unless it is a really big tent lol. Amanda also sells bigger pots than the 7 gallon ones, but they are mostly for those who want to grow outdoors.
