My new grow and first Percy grow diary
Hi all welcome to my journal, I’d like to say my first grow but it’s my second. I’ll start off by telling your my grow area Is in a metal shed so I envisage a lot of temperature issues throughout any grow I attempt to do. Before I set everything up I insulated the wall where my tent is going to be. I’ve raised my tent off the floor and also insulated underneath that.
My grow space is a 60x60x140 cm tent I’m using a Marshydro TS1000 led will be really it’s first run as I only got it halfway through my last run by which point it was too late. I have a black orchid 4 inch exhaust fan and a 4 inch swift air carbon filter. I have 2 4 inch fans one at the top of the tent one that will be at plant height. I also have a 4ft and a 2 ft greenhouse tube heaters in there and a pure mate humidifier which is taking up far to much room
For this run I am hopefully goin to grow 3 stains by 3 different breeders. all 3 seeds went into the water yesterday and are now in paper towels and I’m waiting for them to sprout. I’m doing 3 different ones because my last run I grew the same stain with not great results, so hopefully at least this way I’ll know if it’s my fault or not if I don’t get much of a harvest
strain 1 is Auto Jack Herer by advanced seeds. http://www.advancedseeds.com/en/auto-jack-herer
Strain 2 is Super OG kush by pyramid seeds https://www.pyramidseeds.com/super-og-kush
Strain 3 is Auto Big Brother from Hazy Daze genetics. https://hazydazeseeds.wixsite.com/
I am using 3 gallon fabric pots and on this run I’m using everything biobizz. I intend to put All mix in the bottom 3rd of the pots and the Light mix in the top two thirds. I have got the Root juice, grow, bloom and top max and I also have the ph +/-
Now I do have a few questions:
1 Do i need to add more perlite to the soil?
2 Should I use the root juice when I’m pre watering my pots or wait for life first?
3 Do I need to concern myself with EC? Even tho I’m growing in soil?
I think that’s it, hope that’s not too much information for you all. I welcome all comments and if any of you have any concerns with anything you’ve seen please pull me up on it. I look forward to learning from you all
Awesome, good luck with the grow mate!
surprised you don't have any yet! lol, your collection has started 😉
I've always been told you dont need to worry to much with ec if your doing soil, just made my last one more hard work, I've not checked any ec and my tap water was very high before I'm using same soil apart from the light mix, so should be good not tracking ec
Lovely little set up you got best of luck bro
All bizz seem to give a good mixture of perlite too already
If its salt based nuits, you should the ec mate.
Dont check EC on organics, because that's not salt based 🙂
Thanks gents you’ve confirmed what I was thinking. Second guessing myself after last run 😂 anyone used the root juice before and should I wait till they are up out the soil? Also thinking I done my home work I’ve just realised that I have 2 indica dom and the jack is obviously a Sativa Dom. Does anyone see me having problems with growing all 3 together? Also not related to the grow if I’m answering someone do I just copy a paste what they’ve said and attach it to my reply then they know I’m answering them? ✌️
What ever it says on the bottle, never go over half lol. They always have high doses on the nuits.
Use 1/2 of the recommended dosage for the root juice mate, feed it to the plants a couple of times a week
Its a valuable lesson mate, a lot of problems come from over feeding, always take it lightly
What was the nutes ratio for biobizz? i thought they was half sensible with there recommendation not like dutch pro etc
Id personally use the root stim once a week mate, its good through out the grow, but use it at 2ml per litre. They will be fine with that 🙂
A quick update. I’ve pre soaked my pots, 2 litre of water in each also added 2mls per litre of root juice. My PH was at 6.1 after mixing. The Auto Big Brother and Super OG are now in their pots, I’m still waiting for the Jack Herer to sprout. It was 12 hrs behind in sinking so its to be expected. Hopefully when I get home tomorrow it will have sprouted. I have also left the lights off for the minute, is this the right thing to do?
personally id leave the light on as ya dont know when they will pop through and you dont really want them in the dark when they do
Ok👍 Light is on ✌️
How exciting 🙌 congrats on getting started! Jack herer is one of my favourite strains. Look forward to watching your grow 👍
