Grow Montage (Pineapple express, Hitch slap, Blackberry Kush)
Everybody loves a montage, right!?
Doing this in reverse as i've just cut down the final plant.
I dont have many photos of progress or knowledge of time lengths but i do have information ? so lets go.
My setup is a 900² tent and i use Autopots. My main aim in growing is to make things as low maintenance as possible as like the rest of you i'm sure, i have a pretty busy life with kids, work, training etc, which doesn't leave me enough time to spend sat in the tent as i'd like. Thats why i like Autopots and the water butts, i can fill once a week with a quick plant check every night.
I have two butts so if the Autos get out of sync or finish earlier than their sisters i can have 2 different water qualities at the same time. I also have the airstones at the bottom of the pots. I also have a separate water container that i just run an airstone in for the straight from tap water to oxygenate it.
For soil i use Plagron light mix and i add more Perlite, i use clay balls at the bottom of the pots.
Nutrients, i use Advanced Nutrients, Voodoo Juice, Grow & Bloom A&B, B52, Big bud, Overdrive and Bud candy. I use these as the first guide i followed had these as the schedule and its always worked for me (although my first grow was just with molasses).
My lights are purely LEDs, I have one invisible sun quantum board, 2 cob upgraded Mars hydro 300w and my old faithful Frankenlight which is my old fish tank light adapted to growing plants instead of corals. this is 3w warm wight leds but the number and powers i'm unsure of at the minute as i'm stoned on the sofa.
Onto the plants
I grew Barneys farm pineapple express, this is the 3rd time i've grown this, its a personal fave.
Dutch Passion blackberry Kush, i grew this before christmas but it had issues early on so didnt quite bud properly, still got me wasted though so cant wait for this one.
And Hazey days Auto Hitch slap, this was a very kind free sample i received before christmas but took a while for me to get it in the soil.
Now for some pictures
Hitch slap at the front right Pineapple at the back.
A few weeks on
Blackberry on the front left as it was a few weeks behind due to being a late call up due to some dud seeds
Pineapple was the first to bud
Hitch slap wasnt far behind and Blackberry was really early (more on this beautiful lady later)
Pineapple was the first to finish
82g dry, Happy with that
Meanwhile Hitch slap was coming on strong!!
Forgot to take a picture once i'd trimmed the fan leaves (again stoned)
Its nearly cured so i havent weighed it all yet but when you compare it to the 82g of pineapple its been a beast, i'm guessing 5oz but watch this space.
Now back to the beautiful blackberry kush, i'm in love with this plant, absolute stunner with little black leaves that look like beetles ?
Always fade out on a montage................
Epic Jonny! Those Blackberry look amazing! They always bring out the colours, I might have try some of them myself in the next run
Very nice...also loving that Blackberry Kush...whats it smoke like ? deffo have to get me some of that
I'm definitely going to go for a coloured variety every grow now, wish i'd got the SLR out for some proper pics now.
I had it last year and it was a really nice smoke and that had the tiniest buds so i'll let you know soon as this is ready, only chopped it yesterday :).
The black leaves did make viewing the trichomes weird though
Thought I had a blackberry Dutch passion buts its a blueberry, I do have tho a fastbuds blackberry. I’d already decided they were going to be my next grow but looking at your pics they defo will be! That’s a proper harvest that mate and from what I can see from the pics some nice fat buds. Top job mate I bow to you sir ??✌️Surely there must be a bud of the month in there somewhere ?
For sure! Get a sign up mate, put an entry in
