I bought Super Skunk seeds from ILGM. When they came up
one of them looks completely different than the others.
They are 40 days since germination and it looks like the one
that is different is starting to flower. They are all between 12 and 13 inches tall. The light cycle has not been
changed everything has been the same on all plants. Light cycle 20/4.
It obviously has to be a different strain just done know what it is.
In the beginning I tried some commercial organic compost and I had bugs like
I have never seen in my life gnats,aphids,root aphids and thrips. The plants were all
about 3 weeks old when I noticed the infestation. (lost 2 seedlings due to root aphids) I immediately removed them from the
grow tent dumped them out of the commercial organic compost. Cleaned the tent top to bottom. I have a compost area at my house so i decided
to use my own mix. I took my compost baked it in the oven then added 1/4 FF Happy Frog soil conditioner
1/4 pete moss and several handfuls of perlite (I didn’t measure the perlite), mixed 2 cups of Dr. Jimz tomato Secret and
32oz of Dr. Jimz diluted per instructions Chicken Soup for the soil. Placed all plants in 5 gal fiber pots.
Checked my PH its right at 6.8 to 6.9. I was using tap water but I live in the country and we have
rural water and it is extremely hard but the PH is 7.0. I have since added a RO system to my water.
Probably not the best but I
giving 35,000 Lux to the plants right now. ( Haven’t Measured how far the lights are from the plants just go by the lux reading and how the leaves look)
They have 2 switches one marked veg and one marked bloom only using the veg right now.
I have used the Bug Blaster, Neem Oil, and FF Miticide. But I still notice little flying bugs sporadically showing up.
Guess insects will be a fight for life now.
The first picture is 2 plants that are the same second is the one that looks like its trying to flower.
Any comments suggestions would be appreciated. Not my first grow but it is my first grow from seed. Have always grown from clones.
I am a beginner with a little bit of experience. Still have a lot to learn.
