GHOST TRAIN POWER

Genetics: Ghost Train Haze - Pellezino

Genotype: Sativa Dominant (70% Sativa 30% Indica)

Flowering Time: 65-75 Days

Height: Medium-High

Effect: Strong, Psychoactive, Level Headed

Taste: Fruity, Kush, Haze, Orange, Citric Hints

For this grow I'll be using soil from a field at my house and more or less the same equipment as the last one but iv got the Aray up and running now in the grow room, I was planning on growing some Indica plants this time and trying topping but at the last minute I took a swerve and ended up putting a Sativa to soak.

25th March I put a seed to soak over night and put it in a wet paper towel the next day

27th I thought I might as well get 2 plants on the go again so soaked another.

I planted the first seed on the 28th and it was out of the soil the next day, put a poly bag over it too.

P3290079
P3290081

planted the 2nd seed on the 29th (its in the box to keep it dark) and it was growing the day after aswell.

This is them yesterday, 30th

P3310093

The first one is stretching a good bit so im keeping the light pretty close to see if she'll slow down a bit.

and this is them now, lanky is in the top bunk.

P3310095

Likely not the conventional way of doing things having a plant sitting on top of a light.... but it does say stootie's grow so dont come here expecting anything normal LoL

@chillbert Thanks bud, I was plannin on usin this cupboard for drying my buds when the other plants are ready, so I'll have to swap things around a bit then and put these ones in the big room. Hopefully I should be a bit more organised when I start the 3rd grow....yea right LoL

Just a quick update, I think they are 10 days old now, I topped up the soil in the pot that had the stretching plant to give it some more support, the leaves have grown a bit krinkly but its stopped stretching now. so far Im just using a spray bottle with an adjustable nozzle to water them round the side of the pots.

The plant on the left is a day younger but its spreading its wings a lot more, looks like a green dragon blowing a snot bubble.

P4070111

The weathers been a bit wintery again so the temp and RH have been bouncing about a fair bit this last 3-4 days but its starting to level out again now Wink

P4070112

Thats about all the excitement so far, just waiting patiently for the gnate to arrive Mr. Green

I was going to do an update last sunday night, but....... im using coffee jar lids as saucers for my pots (which isnt a good idea because I keep picking them up by the lid and the pots arent fixed to them), I set my plants on the bed so I could get a few pics, I was putting the last plant back in the cupboard, carrying it by the lid and banged my hand into the side of the mattress and the pot launched into the air, did a summersault, and landed on its side about 2ft below  I was left kneeling holding a coffee jar lid in my hand. I was pretty stoned at the time too, which probably played a part.haha

It was the stretching plant that fell, luckily the soil was pretty dry and the stuff on the top was a layer I added for support and it all crumbled and looked like it cushioned the blow a bit, the whole plant was dangling by the roots in about 2" of soil that was still in the pot, I scooped the earth up off the carpet, put it back in the pot, by that stage I thought I would roll another doob insted of doing an update. The plant never looked any worse after it so hopefully she'll be thinking it was just a bad dream.

WEEK 3 starting today

I got my first fungus gnat infestation a couple of days ago, I squashed one against the wall and hit the other one over the head with a teaspoon, havnt seen any more since.

They started off growing fast but slowed down a lot when the snow came back, I saw roots starting to appear at the holes on the bottom of the smallest pot so I repotted them this morning into their final home on big bucket street.

This is the youngest one, It started growing massive leaves, they're turning a bit yellow, the RH has been very low in there and I had a fan going to keep the temp up, the soil was always dry like so I just gave them a squirt of water randomly, so im not sure if over or under watering will be the problem or something completely different.lol

P4180145
P4180146

And this is them in their new homes

P4180150
P4180151
P4180147
P4180148

Im hoping the leaves will start to improve now they are in bigger pots and the weather is starting to get a bit warmer too so temp and RH will be easier to control.

P4180149

I saw a Centipede sticking his head up through the soil to have a look around, but by the time I got my hands on a teaspoon he was gone!!!! LoL  

Anyone know if a pet Centipede in the bucket would be good or bad for the plant?

WEEK 4....started yesterday, I got the bottle of fish mix home so im feeding them 1-2ish ml of grow and fish mix in 1L of tap/rain water between them roughly every 2nd day.

P4260176

I just noticed in the pic that this stuff is organic, im afraid thats the level of IQ we're dealing with here chaps....when a photo has to inform you that your an organic grower. LoL   Anyway, its nice to know.haha

Theres a few more gnats buzzing about, was thinking I might get some yellow sticky things, anyone know if theres a best brand to get or are they all pretty much the same?

This is the girls now,

P4260174
P4260175

I think the plant above seems to be doing ok but the first leaves on the other one are still slowly turning yellow and starting to turn up at rhe tips, im still hoping its just because of stress due to temp/RH earlier on and the leaves being so massive and funny shaped. Anyone got any thoughts on that it would be, I was plannin on lettin it do its thing and see what happens, the other leaves seem ok, its also a slightly lighter colour than the other plant.(It looks lime coloured in the pic but thats just the grow light, its not THAT bad in real life.haha)

P4260170
P4260171
P4260172

 

I moved them to the big room too and had them under the Aray, but it takes the temp up to 30c (even after I removed the heater). So im starting the day off by giving them 2-3 hours of Aray till the temp gets to the high 20s, then I put the purples on and switch the aray off... and put the heater back in.lol

I was thinking about topping one of them but with work iv never really got round to thinking about it much, will they be about topping stage now or need a week or two yet. Thanks lads Grin

Looks like 5 nodes to me so top away if that's you desire man. Some people top at the 3rd and some at the 4th, both good so your call.

The yellow leaves look like nitrogen is lacking. Some of that fish juice should fix it.

@monkeydo Would this be classed as the 5th node where I have the yellow line, should I just cut it there or go down one?

P4270177

Im not looking for any super mega eye popping end results, im more interested in seeing what happens. I was just planning on doing the one plant and let the other grow normal and see how they compare at the end Smile

Like James mentioned, we cannot see the whole plant. This is easy to learn tho, from the very bottom of the plant start counting at the first leaf with jagged edges. The very first thing that appeared, the round small leaflet, is a cotyledon and not a leaf so don’t count that. Every set of leaves, 2 leaves opposing each other on the stem, is considered a node.

@monkeydo Thanks mate, thats what I was thinking but just wanted to double and tripple check before I went in there swinging the axe. Normally I would go you youtube and watch someone else doing it first just to make sure im doing it right but now I cant watch weed videos without giving them my card details or ID, I can still download the videos and watch them, its just a pain in the arse.haha Cheers Monkey

round leaves don't count. then every set of leaves after that are true leaves, even the single ones. count at least 4 sets of leaves and if there's a growing tip after that then cut.  peace
