Hows it everyone! So this is my second attempt at a grow this year. My last grow was a 1st try at DWC, that failed when my reservoir grew some kind of slime after I introduced my first batch of nutes. Anyways, this time around is going much better and I went back to good o’l soil.
Strain:Unknown due to the seed company not labeling my order of Fem seeds. It is definitely an indica though.
Started in Jiffy Peat pellet and left to germinate in a covered bowl on top of my cable box. 24 hours later
the shell got stuck so I helped her by using a tweezer and gently removed the shell and membrane. Under 26 watt CFL it looked like this at the end of the day
Day 4 Under 26 watt CFL 24 hours
Day 7 Soil is a Local product made up of Organic soil mixed with perlite. No Nutrients in the soil
Day 9 Replanted in a 2 Gal pot. Started under 2-26 watt CFLs 18/6 cycle
Day 12- she started to look strong and healthy so I switched on the Big Boy Lights. 400watt MH with Vented hood connected to 4" `190 cfm inline fan.
Day 15- She had 4 nodes and a 5th on the way so I started her on some 1/4 strength nutes. 0.13-0-.60 and also added some VooDoo juice to help build some nice roots.
Day 19- 6 sets of nodes and a 7th set on the way. She had minor nute burn so I fed just pH’d water 6.3 for two days.
that night I cleaned her up and got her ready for some Mainlining
Day 20- The two new main stems grew out enough that I could tie them down. Also, I moved her into a 5-Gal bucket. When I moved her I noticed a whole bunch of little red ants started making their way in and around my plant. I googled some non chemical remedies and one was ground cinnamon. For whatever reason ants don’t like it. So thats what the light brown stuff is on my soil.
Day 21- 6/2/15 I accidentally split one of the main stalks a little bit when I adjusted the garden wire. She seems to be doing ok though because the heads of the two new mains pointed up. Also no more little ants. I dunno if they died or ran away, but cinnamon for the win! and it smells nice in my grow closet.
