I was going to do a straight grow, but at about day 21 from seed, I decided these girls needed scrogging, or else I’d end up really cutting it close with height/light/etc. This is my 4th grow, so I’m kind of getting the hang of it. Kind of.
I’m growing in organic soil using AN pH perfect m/g/b, voodoo, b-52, and nirvana. I haven’t been feeding too heavy, b/c the soil is doing a great job. Up til now, I’ve been using mostly micro & the supplements, and my plants are doing the best I’ve ever seen. Once I started the Nirvana…holy moly!
I am scrogging 6 plants (2 fruit punch, 2 strawberry cheesecake, and 2 o’haze red) in a 2.5x5x7 tent. My screen is 9" above the top of the soil. I didn’t start scrogging until day 34 from seed; I flipped my lights at day 42. I am using a 600wLED light.
Just before scrog/transplanting to final 3gal pots, in veg tent (plants circled are not part of this journal):
First Week progression:
2 days after flip/first application of nirvana:
It’s now 5 days after flip. The rate of growth is astonishing me. Right now they’re doing the growing-so-fast-new-growth-is-very-pale, thing. I am wondering if 6 plants might be too many, but since there are definitely plenty of open spaces for me to direct bud nodes to, I’m going to keep going with all 6.
I’ll post photos of transition/bloom day 6 in the morning.
So far, the plants seem healthy. I’m hoping they stay that way!
