Malana bomb,Strawberry nuggets, Purple kush and a Northern cheese haze
Well my 3rd grow is well underway and as I’m off work ill I have time to start my next diary. So originally I was only going to grow 2 plants in 3 gallon pots and a solo cup to see if I could better my last one, which I have, but because this will be my grow for Christmas smoke and I’ve now smoked all the Northern cheese haze which was the best of what I last grew. I decided to grow some more this time in a 3 litre plastic pot. So the plant total is upto 4 now.
Mars hydro Ts1000
Soil & Nutes:
Biobizz light and All mix soil with the Root juice,Bio grow,Bio bloom and Top max. (Using these nutes again because I have them and before I try other brands want to use these up).
I am using 2 3gallon fabric pots, 1 3litre plastic and a solo cup.
I am growing in a metal shed outside in a 60x60x140 grow tent. So sometimes its hard to battle humidity, temps especially in summer as I found out on my last grow!
So now down to the important part the strains ? so first up as a thanks to Barneys farm and ironically The Vault as I think this was a free seed from them, I’m growing Malana Bomb: https://www.barneysfarm.com/malana-bomb-auto-39 i have put her In one of the fabric pots.
Next up is Strawberry nuggets from mephisto: https://www.mephistogenetics.co.uk/strawberry-nuggets she too has gone into the other fabric pot.
next up is Purple Kush 1:1 Cbd from seedeman: https://www.seedsman.com/en/purple-kush-cbd-auto-1-1-feminised-seeds this is in the solo cup as I wanted to sample this before giving up any large grow space to it.
And finally, she only went in the soil mon so is a good 20 days behind the rest. But it’s Northern cheese haze from mephisto: https://www.mephistogenetics.co.uk/northern-cheese-haze she has gone into a 3 litre plastic pot.
So I started my grow off on the 5th of September that’s when the strawberry and the bomb went into just plain old tap water. The pink kush went into the water the day after. In my pots I’ve put the biobizz all mix in the bottom half of pots and light mix in the rest with added perlite this time. And the solo cup is just the light mix. On my next grow I’m going to add a third soil to it and have the seeds put into a seed compost first as I believe the light mix is a little hot for the seed and my first few leaves show this, with distortion but soon sorts itself out as the plant grows. But if I can stop this happening hopefully I will get better growth and yield. So will try that next time.
By the 9th the strawberry and the bomb had popped above ground and the purple wasn’t to far behind.
we are now at day 22 for the strawberry and bomb and 21 on the kush and so far apart from something having a nibble on some leaves(stopped now tho) and me slightly under watering the solo cup, all is going pretty well so far. I’m going to have to stop typing now as I’m using my phone and I’m going cross eyed as it’s taking me ages but below is some photos of the grow so far and I will update about the cheese haze soon. ✌️ For some reason can’t put in photos will try again shortly but not losing this so will post it. Watch this space peoples ?♂️
All them strains sound amazing mate! Damn, youre gonna have some lovely jars in a few months lol. Good luck mate, looking forward to watching the grow
managed to upload few photos now ?
And a couple from today, my purple kush is looking sorry for herself I thought she was under watered so I gave her a drink and no improvement today hopefully she’s drinking slowly ?
Root bound mate.... you got a hole in the bottom for drainage?
Coming on lovely ?
Another quick update for those interested. The pink kush at 28 days and the strawberry nuggets at 30days have both started to flower ? The malana bomb at day 30 hasn’t but I think it is slightly longer in growing times so not too concerned. Although the pink kush is root bound it’s not doing too badly the foliage tho smells amazing! To be fair the whole tent smells better this time around must be down to lower humidity and slightly cooler weather. The northern cheese haze tho is causing me problems this time around. The first seed i germinated even though it had sprouted failed to push through the soil after 6days and when I fished about to find it it hadn’t grown much so it got binned. The second seed I’ve popped had a nice long tap root before it went in the soil and has come through but still with her hat on as you’ll see in the photos. I wasn’t sure what to do for the best so late on yesterday evening I operated on her! I carefully teased off the shell with a cocktail stick and my finger and as I did the two little leaves unfurled and in the middle I could see the next set poking through,so fingers crossed when I check on her tomorrow all is well or no Northern Cheese for me at Christmas ? Also yesterday I gave all but the cheese a light feed of Bio grow just 0.5ml/l Just because I thought the bomb looked a bit hungry. Now on to the Malana bomb it is defo the strangest one I’ve grown yet. I can see all sorts of different leaf structures, sativa and indica! And some leaves have 3 fans to them some 4-7 on others it looks pretty mad and I think she could be a beast ?I couldn’t take many photos as the new iPhone is out. So for a bit, somehow apple max out my storage and cause my phone to do all sorts of weird shit till I either buy the new one or download the new iOS version!! I don’t think I’m paranoid, but who knows ??? Hope you enjoy what little I took ✌️??
I've had to operate on occasion too... I think they definitely appreciate it though. Makes me feel like Richard Attenborough on Jurassic Park when that raptor is hatching in the lab... ?
A little update, unfortunately I’ve not been able to tend to my garden as Ive wanted to meaning I missed giving my ladies a cal/mag boost when they needed it and the malana bomb and the solo cup are not looking their best. The strawberry nuggets though is not looking too bad and the colour on the purple Kush is looking amazing and to be fair it has a nice smell about it. They’ve all now had a cal:mag boost hopefully not too late. I’ve not fed the girls half as much this time round, only putting nutes in every other watering and been keeping ph around 6.4-6.5. But I was reading a biobizz article and they recommend when using there soils to ph at 6.2-6.3 so that wouldn’t have helped the cal/mag issue and that I’m using leds. When I have managed to get into the garden I have taken a few pictures and hopefully will be able to get back in there soon and more regularly and take proper care of my ladies. Happy growing people ?✌️
Looking good still mate! That purple is a beauty, even if she is in a small pot lol. Hope you're feeling better soon mate
Looking good brother! That solo cup grown is a beaut nice work!
Love it mang... ? Beauties.
Well it’s been a while Percy growers I can only apologise I’ve got a lot on. So while I got a min thought I’d update this diary and throw in a few photos as well. I’ve now well harvested these ladies and only got a bit of the cheese haze left ? but saving that for next month as it’s well nice ? infact all the flower was nice this time round just very little yield. But as they say quality not quantity!
So they strawberry nuggets was a very squat plant and gave me just short of 20g. Smelled very fruity as did all the plants except the cheese. Every time I opened the tent it smelt of fermenting tropical fruits it was awesome. That was mainly down to the malana bomb which gave me an oz so was to bad as she looked battered in the photos. According to the blurb it should have smelt of pine, far from it so fruity and tropical smelling?
My solo cup cbd 1:1 kush was a poor attempt this time round giving me 3.5g again hint of berry on this one with that earthy kush hint. Also nice will definitely give it s go in a bigger pot next time.
Then the stinking sticky 15g of Northern cheese haze ??? she was grown in a 3 litre plastic pot and grew really well again will grow in a bigger pot at some point.
Again sorry for the absence, I’ve started my next grow and getting an office sorted so a new diary is coming just bear with me. And should be a belter as my son built me a computer for Christmas so no more using my phone when doing this yayy ? hope you are all well and thanks for reading ?? ps will put up more photos shortly ✌️
