Heya folks!

Im a lazy fuker, but I resolve to finsih this diary and keep it updated. Phew!

So im finally gonna try growing out a proper seed from scratch. I think I have a fair understanding of Coco. I am currently also growing out a rouge seed from a hermied GSC that is being helped along by you folks in another thread around here. That grow has kinda gone soso, its messy and big and thin and meh. But we shall see.

So, current tent is 4x4, will probably get replaced by something much smaller as soon as the big plant in here is done. Lights I have available to me a 240w LM561 and a 120w LM561 board driven by Meanwell HLG.

Nutes are a self made blend with expected resultant ppm's at full strength attached. I also have a CalMag concoction. So far they seem to be not killing the plants. Nutes will always remain an unverified element and we will just play along making adjustments. pH down is a phosphoric acid dilution.

Seed is a freebie from my first and successful order with Herbies seeds. Thanks to them and I can vouch for exceptional customer service. Seed is the Gorilla Glue Automatic.

Im a lame grower, who wants it all to just happen on its own. Im learning the hard way thats easier said than done. So help me along while I kick myself in the butt over and again. 

Let us begin.

Nutes A+B expected ppm, EC @ 1.3

N (NO3-) 145
K 200
P 50
Mg 50
Ca 99.95
S 39.744
Fe 1.25
Zn 1.5
B 0.25
Cu 0.5
Mo 0.05
Na 0
Si 0
Cl 0
Mn 0.5
N (NH4+) 5.848

 

Coco :

Brick. Cleaned and washed well, then buffered overnight in a CalMag solution with an EC of 2. Flushed to bring EC down to 0.1

Strain Name
Lighting

Lm561 Quantum boards

Breeder/ Seedbank
Nutrients

DIY concentrates

Seed goes into a paper towel, and the damn thing has a tap root showing within 24hours. Moved it to the grow bag a bit late, tap was an inch long and hairy. 

Gently moved to the coco and she pops up a day and night later! Smile  

Day 1. 21/04/2021. 

1ml CalMag + A+B EC 0.6 (background 0.2)

1

Day 2.5 (Now)

She was putting on a bit of a stretch, left her overnight under a dome. Light brought closer to bout 30 inches (i dont have a dimmer on this board)

The spikes are part of a drip watering system i hope to implement.

1ml CalMag + A+B EC 0.6 (background 0.2)

2
3

 

All looking ok for Day 2 ? Lights ill run 18/6. Its gonna get hot in the coming weeks. Mid to high 30's. Let us see.

 

Thanks folks!

@galandil hehe! Yup. Thats the next time. My past 2 attempts in soil failed miserably. I could not even get tomatoes to germinate. So whole plan needs a revisit with help from here.

@meisme well as in everything soil is not always soil, I use soil from BioBizz and never had any issue. Just make sure you store it correctly, nothing really hard to do, dry, dark, room temperature place.

Alright, quick adjustment in. Earlier today evening I brought the light closer as I thought im seeing a bit of a stretch. Can anyone verify ?

Forgot I had a lux meter around and I measured. At seedling lux read at 13K, and I read thats a bit much. So adjusted to bout 7500 lux now. Or bout 38".

Help me get me some juicy buds folks.

Cheers!

Good day folks! 

Day 3 routine over earlier today evening. She is getting leggy?
Bout 2¾ of an inch tall now. Mild feed with an EC of 0.4 (Bg 0.15) base nutes, pH 5.8

Im using RO water and I wish we could edit earlier posts. No relevance to anyone, but I have mixed in a new recipe for the nute concentrates to try out. 

Also lightly misting her a cople of times a day with plain tap water which has an EC of bout 0,6

All ok? Take care folks.

Hey folks! Hope you all doing well.

So day 4 today. More of the same. Waiting for the root ball to take hold I suppose.

Feed today was 1ml each of CalMag+Fe and A+B base nutes, for a total EC of 0.58 (background EC 0.15) and a pH of 5.8. Runoff was EC 0.615 and pH 6.15, so I think ill let her be for a couple of days bwtween feeds, or do I still continue to feed daily ?

She is 3" tall now, and I have lowered the light a bit for a reading of bout 9000 Lux on the plant. Is this ok ?

Cheers folks and thanks a ton!

You want to water a bit every day in coco but this early skipping a day probably wouldn’t hurt anything. To promote root growth water in a circle a bit away from the stem and the roots will reach for the moisture. You have it right, the focus right now is building that root system. Once she has that you will see a faster growth rate. If you have any Rhizotonic or other root stimulator now is a good time to use it to speed root development. Looks healthy right now, good work.

Ok cool. I have 3 products with me, please advise what to use and how?
I asked wife her last trip to the UK to get a few acclaimed products, but honestly haven't got my head around how to best use them. Could you please so kind and have a look at these products and advise ?

From the Nutrient company. 

From a local manufacturer :

Might need some other eyes on this as this isn’t close to anything I’ve used. The Mycorr looks to be for the rhizosphere so that would be good now. I’d go 50% of recommendation

@meisme Iv only just start my 2nd grow so I dont really know shit about plants yet LoL   But to me it looks like shes coming along lovely Cool  

The only thing I did wonder about was your RH and temp, In the guide on here it says the RH should be 60-70% and Temp should be 20-25c

But that maybe depends on the grow too. Good luck mate, she'll be a big lady before you know it Mr. Green

@stootie yeah, nowhere close to ideal on the environment. But to do anything around here would mean using an aircon, and the electricity expense im unwilling to accept.

Let us see. For the humidity, I could possibly get a humidifier, but then that too would add to the temps, so...

Hey Folks! Day 12.

Seems to be keeping up fine. Lemme know if anything amiss ?
Feed today after a days break @ 1ml CalMag + 1ml base nutes or a final EC of 0.6 (BG 0.15) and pH bout 5.9. 
RH is still low and temps are now curtailed to the low 30s

Light is a 120w LM561c HLG driver quantum board 3500k @ 31" for 10,000 lux.

Funny how it grew a second set of first leaves (the single blade one, what they called) before I got the fan blades. 2nd pic. Any concern ?

Cheers folks! Be safe.

Any concern ?

As long as they look and feel happy and healthy, I wouldn't. They are living beings and as such each it's different even if from same parents.
