TempleGrower Grows Seedsman, Barney's and JahSeeds Autos
- 2x Dark Livers (Dark Devil x Sour Livers) (JahSeeds)
- 1x Malana Bomb (Barney's Farm)
- 1x Sweet Tooth (Barney's Farm)
- 1x Zkittlez (Seedsman)
- 1x Blueberry (Seedsman)
- 2x Strawberry Cheese (Seedsman)
Size of Grow Area and number of plants:
1.2m x 1.2m x 1.8m (4' x 4 'x 5'9") Secret Jardin Dark Street 120W tent with 8 plants
Starting/seedlings: 4 x 36" SunBlaster T5 HO 6400K fluorescent tubes in rack- I have these attached to a shelving unit and/or a Mars II 900 at about 24" (60cm) above the plants, veg mode only.
Veg/flower: 1x MarsHydro Mars II 1600/2x Cheap amazon LEDs
Exhaust: 1x Vivosun 195 CFM inline fan out through my chimney to the great outdoors
6x 12L (3 gallon) round black plastic pots, 1x 12L (3 gallon) fabric pot, 1x 6L (1.5 gallon) black plastic pot
The supersoil has all the food built in so besides a weekly shot of liquid kelp, nothing additional. Actually, I suppose I use pH down to bring my irrigation water down to a decent level, so there's that. And maybe a shot of molasses every few weeks if I remember. But nothing else.
- pH/EC pens - just some basic $20-$30 Amazon ones. Our water here is quite alkaline (basic), with a pH out of the tap of about 8.1. I have to treat my water with pH Down.
- Small pump/air-stone - Used to oxygenate/equilibrate my irrigation water prior to adjusting with pH Down.
- 6" Clip on fan/12" oscillating tower fan - blows the air around and keep everything fresh
- Watering cans
- mp3 player/speaker
Plan for the grow:
No training, no topping, no nothing. Just au natural.
Won't be popping these for a few days yet here, but there they are.
Sweet! New Diary TG! Good luck mate
Nice selection there TG, Cant wait to watch this grow good Luck Brother
Mar 26 (Day 0) - Well I lied. I started the soak today. Hahahaha. I'm using a muffin container to soak/paper towel. Should work well - 6 spots for 6 strains. The label is even kinda accurate, having had Blueberry muffins inside before lol. Too bad I didn't have some Auto Chocolate Chunk too. I've never heard of a Raisin Bran strain though, lool.
Thinking i might pop a few for a guerilla grow, see if we can get lucky considering itll be quiet out lol
Mar 28 - We have life! 4/8 beans have popped so far: Both Malana Bomb & Sweet Tooth (Barney's), Zkittlez (Seedsman), and 1/2 Strawberry Cough (Seedsman). The Blueberry has a bit of weird orange-y looking discolouration on it.. hopefully the seed was just stained or something b/c bright colours often indicate bacterial colonization. Not the growth I am looking for, lol. I don't think it's that though.. it's a fat seed so maybe she's just lazy AF. I am more worried about one of the White Skunks - it cracked the shell and poked out a teeny little root but, hasn't moved since yesterday so.. we will see. Really hoping they work out though.. Anyways, got the 4 in their 3 gal pots in the super soil today, and they're now under the Mars II 900 upstairs along with the photos from the other diary. GROWING ROOLZ
Fast bro, them beans are Eager! lol
April 7 (Day 3) - So as of April 4, all the beans are sprouted and growing. I ended up binning the 2x White Label Super Skunks (from my French buddy), as well as one of the Blueberries, and one of the Strawberry Cheeses as they did not germinate. I ended up starting another Strawberry Cheese, another Blueberry, and 2x Dark Livers regular autos from JahSeeds.
The DLs are a cross of Mephisto Genetics' Sour Livers and Jah's Dark Devil which itself is a Lowryder #2 x Dark Devil cross.. I think. I didn't post a link because they are no longer available! They are regs too so, we will see how that goes. If one is a male, I may use some of the pollen to selectively fertilize a couple of branches and see if I can make some of my own autos. All in time tho.
For now, they are still very very small. The Blueberry has some serious bling tho - seed shell necklace. Pretty cool. The Sweet Tooth with the single cotyledon is growing normally by the looks of it as well. Excellent.
Currently in the 2x4 under the Mars Reflector 144 under a 20/4 schedule.
Awesome mate, lets hope for one male them lol
April 13 (Day 9) - Well things are growing along.. some quicker than others. The Seedsman Zkittlez and Strawberry Cheeses, as well as the Dark Livers are coming along very nicely so far - all are about 6-8cm tall and getting noticeably bigger every day now.
The other three, the Malana Bomb, the Sweet Tooth, and especially the Blueberry are all very very small compared to the others, maybe 4 cm at the tallest. The Blueberry looks the weirdest though - some fucky looking leaves on her, like wings lol. Hopefully she'll pull through, or else it's to the gallows for her. I have a few replacements on the go (my Kevin's Lemons) so if the original plans end up not working out, I'll have some subs at least.
April 19 (Day 15) - Growth has begun to accelerate now. The Barney's Malana Bomb and Sweet Tooth are still small but growing much more vigorously now. I hope they are able to catch up to the others. These Seedsmans though - wow! Especially this Zkittlez. It is at least twice as big as the other plants, and frickin huge already for only being just over 2 weeks old. She's showing some stigmata (love that word) already so, that's fast. Lol. Flowers may come sooner than later. The Blueberry though... not super sweet. Probably gonna pitch that one and substitute in a windowsill Kevin's Lemons, which is currently growing beautifully under the T5s.
The Jah Seeds' Dark Livers are also looking very excellent - super fat leaves on them. Not sure if I still want a male or not from them though.. I want seeds but I don't want to harvest them 🙃. We shall see. They will be getting some kelp juice and a bit of molasses tomorrow, along with the photos downstairs. Yummy.
The State of the Grownion
May 4 (Day 30) - Well what a difference 2 weeks makes. Remember how I said I was disappointed in the runty Malana Bomb and Sweet Tooth? I think they heard me because they grew like absolute psychos. I actually had to move the Malana Bomb (and the Zkittlez too.. holy SHIT is it BIG now) to the 4x4 b/c they are at least double the size of all the rest. The Zkittlez is probably 90cm or more now so. God damn. I hope it chills out soon, and pumps that energy into some pHaT bUdZ.
All in all I am happy with the overall health of the ladies, but one of the shitty things about growing many different cultivars is their inconsistency in beginning flowering.. I have one Strawberry Cheese, the Malana Bomb and Zkittlez all looking like they have about 2 weeks of 'flowering' growth on them already (thinner new growth, pistil production, resin, etc.), while the others haven't really started yet. Oh well, I guess harvest will be a bit more staggered.
I've also pollinated one of the branched of the Zkittlez with some pollen I got from a male JahSeeds' Dark Livers regular auto I grew out (Jah's Dark Devil x Mephisto's Sour Livers). Hopefully it'll work out and I get some more reg autos to mess around with.
Gave em all an nice watering with their weekly shot of kelp juice and bi-weekly shot of EPSI. Smells kinda bad but looks oh so good.. Also did a prune and trimmed some larf branches/opened up the canopy.
These are all in 3 gal pots in super soil in a 2x4 under 18/6 using a @mars-hydro Reflector 144. The Zkittlez and Malana Bomb are in the 4x4 now under the Mars II 1600 + 2x No name LEDs, under 12/12 (there are photos in flower in there as well).
Dick Pic - Dark Livers
Awsome as always Brother
May 6 (Day 32) - Just some more better quality pics I grabbed with the light off. Amazing these are only ~4 weeks old. I will try to get a pic of that Zkittlez in the other tent later on too - it's HUGE.
