BS's 1st Grow, Cheese, Soil
So here I have another one. With this one here everything was strange.
I putted the seed to germinate at the same time and same method as my Hydroponic one, but this one took much longer to grow. Don't know why but is much smaller.
I decided to leave this one outside with the natural elements of the weather. Already done one topping. Didn't gave any nutrients yet. Because it was outside, one day I went to see it and my cats left a surprise for me and ate some lower leaves. I don't know if now it will affect the growth of the plant or not.
Soil (inserted a layer of expanded clay pebbles on the bottom of the pot and the mixed some organic biologic soil ( https://portal.siro.pt/pt/Store/Product?ref=SR1513000111&codeCat=port_substratos_hobby_especificos ) with some expanded clay pebbles to aerate the soil. I don't know if it's ok to do it but because I didn't had perlite I thought that expanded clay pebbles might do more less the same job)
Size of Grow Area and number of plants:
Do you think it's enough for the whole process?

Plan for the grow:
I'm planning to do some more topping and LST. This one cause will be outside I think that I will not do SCROG.
These photos I took today when I moved the plant next to the others, inside the tent.
Lol, cats apparently love weed too, I dont have any so never had the problem. But it is best to keep pets away from the grow room, as they will carry bugs and things on them that might get onto your plants and cause problems.
These girls look a little yellow too, maybe they're hungry and need a bit more nitrogen?
Today, day 44, I decided to give some nuts to the babies and this one was no exception.
In 1L of water I used 1ml of CalMag and 2ml of BioGrow. I noticed that after inserting the nuts the EC of the feeding water raised to 2mS/cm2. Is that normal or is it too much?. Left the pH on 6,2.
I don’t grow Cannabis in soil, I’m a coco grower, but that EC of 2.0 sounds very high to me. My basic rule is to use a starting dose at only 1/2 the manufacturers recommended amount and sometimes that can be a bit too much as well. If the plants need more feed I’m more inclined to give half the feed twice as often to make it easier on the roots. I’d be curious to know what your starting background EC is and what the actual nute load is.
Today I didn't touched them. Just decided to take some pics to share with you.
They seem to be reacting well to the nuts.
In the beginning of this diary I said that I've done topping but I was wrong. In this one I done Fimming.
During the introduction of the diary I mentioned that I mixed some expanded clay pebbles on the soil to aerate and a layer of them on the bottom to improve irrigation and aeration. Now that I will transplant to a bigger pot do you think that I should leave the expanded clay pebbles like that or should I take them out and buy some perlite to mix with the soil?
My concern is that it may take some space for the roots to grow or something like that.
Another question that may sound stupid. Can I change the medium during the grow process or should I stick to the same medium till the end of the grow and just choose in the beginning?
Transplanted as well this one. I think this one is looking good.
Do you think that the two plants outside the tent will have enough light?
I turned a little bit the reflector towards them so they receive a little more direct light.
I wanted them to grow till time to change to flowering so i can move them outside.
Your plants are going to bend towards the light so you should turn them often. You will probably be OK for a short while but I’d avoid this long term. It’s enough light to keep them alive till you can plant them outside but they will stretch and reach for the light. If they are going to flower outdoors I’d get them out a little early to let them acclimate to the climate and light first if you can, but I don’t know your climate. It would be less stressful to the plants and should keep them happier during bloom. Happy plants make nice dank bud.
I may be a little stoned but can you please clarify something? They will be put outside but are currently in the tent? So what is the lighting in the tent?
LOL. My understanding is that the plant completely inside the tent is your indoor-only plant? And the two outside of the tent but still hopefully getting some of the light from the tent will be going outside when the weather allows? what is your lighting in the tent and is that indoor plant also in soil?
The plant inside the tent is growing hydroponically. The light is 150W HPS. I don’t put them now outside just because of the light cycles. Now they are under a 18/6 cycle and normally sunlight is just during 12h.
The same issue as the my other plant in soil. The soil is still humid after one week of watering and look as well too much stretched and I think it's all because of the lack of light. What do you think? The nodes are not growing symmetrically. Is it sign of maturity, so is it ready to change to the flowering stage?
Today I decided to do some Super Cropping to control the stretchiness of the plant. I've done in 4 branches and in one of them went too far and opened a wound, wrapped with tape and hope to heal.
Yesterday I watered them just with pHed water.
I'm very concerned now about moving them outside. I'm afraid that someone might see them and call the cops. I think they are already ready to enter in flowering phase but don't know what to do.
Day 4 Flowering Stage (Stretch Phase)
I think she is reacting well to the super cropping.
