So decided to post on a grow journal to share my experiences and to get opinions on how I am doing. This is the 1st time I grew anything so everything is new to me and is part of the excitement. I’m 33 days into my grow and have kept a detailed grow journal in excel sheet. I have made some mistakes and have learned a lot so far. I have much more to learn.

Well 1st I will go into the gear I pick out.

GEAR:

  • Tent 3x3 Vivosun.
  • AC Infinity CLOUDLINE T6, Quiet 6” Inline Duct Fan with Temperature Humidity Controller
  • 6” carbon filter
  • Lighting is HLG 260W QB V2 RSPEC LED KIT controlled by digital outlet timer
  • Humidifier and Space Heater controlled by Inkbird 1800W Temperature & Humidity Controller ITC-608T Pre Wired Plug Thermostat Humidistat Digital Temp RH Probe 2 Stage Outlet
  • Vivosun grow tent fan 6”
  • Apera Instruments PC60 Premium 5-in-1 Waterproof pH/EC (Conductivity) /TDS (ppm) /Salinity (PPT) /Temp. Multi-Parameter Pocket Tester Kit, Replaceable Probe
  • Professional LED Light Meter, Dr.meter 1332B

Other Grow stuff:

  • Mother Earth Coco Plus Perlite Mix | 50L | RHP Certified Natural Plant Growth Media
  • General Hydroponics Flora Grow, Bloom, Micro Combo Fertilizer set
  • General Hydroponics GH1352 Diamond Nectar
  • Botanicare CAL-MAG Plus Plant Supplement 2-0-0 Formula
  • General Hydroponics pH Control Kit
  • Organic Laboratories 100-021 Lab QT Organocide 3-in-1 Garden Spray

What strain is it? I’m growing 2 strains. Purple Haze and Sour OG
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? PH is a Sativa and the Sour OG is a 50/50 hybrid
Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Veg
If in Veg… For how long? As of today I’m in my 33day of grow from seed.
Indoor or outdoor? Indoor 3x3x6’ tent in my basement
Soil or Hydro? Coco Coir which is considered a hydro medium.
If soil… what is in your mix? 70/30 Coco/Perlite mix
If soil… What size pot? Used 1L air pots starting out and transferred to 5gal fabric pots
Size of light? HLG 260W QB V2 RSPEC LED KIT
Is it aircooled? Yes
Temp of Room/cab? Temp is maintained at 75-77F in temp controller. Room is a steady 62f so space heater and the heat given off by light is used to maintain temp.
RH of Room/cab? Hum is maintained by a humidity controller and humidifier. Hum started out at 70% for the 1st two weeks and dropped down to 60% where it is kept now.
PH of media or res? Target 6.0ph.
Any Pests ? none yet
How often are you watering? 2-3 times per day
Type and strength of ferts used? General Hydroponics

So I decided to use Coco Coir as the grow medium. I learned a lot about Coco on Cannabis Grow Guide - Coco For Cannabis - Science and Practice. For water I’m using RO water from my home system.

So here is my Nutrient schedule/guideline.

So some week 6 thoughts and observations.
One again for the size tent I had I would only grow one strain at a time. I am struggling to keep the Sour OG high enough that the PH does not tower over it and block the light. I ended up putting the Sour OG on a milk crate to offset the height difference.

The PH is growing crazy. Week 6 is a transition week so i switched over from 18/6 to 12/12 lighting. By end of week nice buds were forming. Only issue i have is the PH is already too large for the 3x3 tent I have. So end of the week I purchased a Vivosun 5x5’x80" tent and an additional HLG 260 LED lighting kit. Which I custom built a linkage to make both light into one fixture. It came out mint and i will go into that further in week 7 if anyone is interested or even reading this journal.

Week 7 here just rapped up. Some thoughts! When i switched to 12/12 lighting the Purple Haze shot the hell up crazy. Buds are forming and plant is huge. The Sour OG is still in veg and I had to continue feeding her the Veg Nuits because she was showing signs of stress with the bloom nuits. She doing much better now and looking nice and bushy. Even after defoliating the crap out of her.

So because I am feeding both different nuits I am changing how i o my log. I split the excel sheet for each plant. I moved the girls on Sat 12/14 into their new home (5x5 tent). much more space. I also added the 2nd HLG 260 LED lighting kit that I custom mounted together with the 1st unit to make one light.(see pics).

Anyway, here is week 7

Wrapping up week 8. My observations this week was interesting. So the P-Haze is in full out Flower for 2nd full week. It is using more nuits and water than the Sour OG. Both plants for half the week were burning through nuits like crazy. I had to bump up my concentrations a little. My goal was EC around 1150. My runoff was in the mid 900’s (EC) even with inputs nuits as high as 1400. End of week they built up a little and I dropped nuits to normal values for now. The leafs look very healthy with no issues. Best solution for me would to be to water a 3rd time a day. But with my schedule there is not way to do that. I’m most likely going full hydroponic on my next grow so i do not want to invest in an auto watering system.

So that Sour OG is lagging behind about 2 weeks from the PH. Week 8 was more a transition week for her and she started to flower and stretch by the end of the week. I had to take her off the milk crate and she just boosted up on a cardboard box about 3" now.

The purple haze was stretched the hell out and tucked every few days to keep the buds as level as possible. She is looking nice, buds are getting on in size and smell amazing.

Week 9 is finished. The purple haze is starting the 4th week of flower and the Sour OG the 2nd week. PH is smelling super strong and very sweet smell. It is amazing! Buds are getting big and very sticky. I have to start wearing gloves cause it gets on your hands and its like sap. Got i little buzz off of it too.
Really nothing more to report. Leafs all look healthy and just watering 2x a day with nuits. Going to up the nuits to

CAlmag 2.5ml / Mirco 4ml / Grow 1ml / Bloom 6ml / DiaNectar 2.5ml (all per gal)

Week 10 is done. Nothing exciting happened. I bumped up the nuits and plant seems to be fine with them. PH went super high EC reading of 1738 on day 65. I just made sure to heavy water her for a couple of days and she went right back to normal level. Sour OG is still 2-3 weeks behind the Purple haze. She is going through her flower stretch right now. PH is all done stretching and the buds are just getting bigger and heavier. I defoliated the lower leafs a couple of times.

Not much to report for week 11. Looks like I had a few leafs on the P-Haze look to have CalMg deficiencies plus all the leafs on both plants show what i think is light burn just on the very tips of the leafs. The light was around 18" and HLG recommends +24" for the light i have. So i bumped up the CalMg and the light height. Buds are growing nicely and i’m still watering 2x a day about 1 gal per plant (5gal fabric planters).

Just going to post logs for week 11 and in a few days will post logs/pics of week 12.

Week 12 is done. Purple Haze CalMg deficiencies has stabilized now that i added more into the Nuits. The buds are getting thicker and longer. Smell has become overpowering. I had to vent my exhaust to outside. Smell is much more manageable now. The Sour OG seems not to be using as much nuits as the PH did at the same stage. The EC out measurements are spiking over the 300 differential (see measurements in red). Every time i water I make sure i’m flushing 1-1.5 qts through the coco so the Nuits do not build up and my PH is always around 6.0. Going to lower the nuits till the EC out measurements are within range.
