Hi All! This will be my first grow diary at Percy's. I've been journalling on another site for a few years. I decided to try and squeeze in a quick run to harvest before the end of this year hopefully. May run slightly over. Dropped 4 seeds straight into moist soil and a couple of days later had 4 babies. 

4 strains in soil going into 5.7 litre fabric pots. This will be a short veg period. I started them in a 40x40cm tent but have just moved them into one side of the larger tent. Haven't decided if I will top and train them or just let them go natural. I will see how they grow over the next week or two. Here they are from the beginning and now on day 13. 

Usually manage to have a laugh and learn something through each grow. Appreciate anyone wanting to follow along and please feel free to ask any questions.

Hi vetsmoke

I would like to follow your grow ? It looks like know what you're doing .

I have a question,  you grow 4 strains do you change your feeding for each plant or do they get the same 

Also why have you chosen those strains to grow ? 

Best wishes let the laughs begin x

@hashimoto Hi mate! Usually I will feed them all the same and only tailor feed to a plant if it really is suffering. As I'm limited with my time I will take a plant not being perfect for the whole grow over messing around with individual feeds. As I'm using Geoflora this grow I don't expect to have many issues like that. 

 

Strain choices is a variety of reasons. None of these have a really long flowering period. I wanted a fairly quick turnaround on these. I've wanted to try the Original Cheese for a while and I got the seeds from Milo at the Product Earth Expo this year. The rest I just liked the sound of or they have lineage of cultivars I've tried before and enjoyed. I'm still searching for a stable of favourites that work for me. I do multiple strains as I enjoy some variety in my medicine cabinet. 

Hope that answers your questions. Happy to have you along for the ride and hopefully we all learn something and have fun along the way.

@woodi2 Thanks bud. Happy to be getting involved here and appreciate the warm welcome. I may transplant them tonight but I've also got to start harvesting the hempy girls. See what I can get done tonight. Cheers!

I went with the transplanting as a priority tonight. Harvesting stealthily is easier at the weekend anyway. Lol. 

They're actually 2 weeks old today. Gone into 5.7L pots of biobizz light mix amended with 3 tablespoons of Geoflora grow. Two got a bit of leftover dynomyco at the base. Wish I wasn't as high and remembered which two.🤣 

I watered in with tap water treated with ecothrive neutralise and a dose of ecothrive biosys for the microbes. I adjusted pH down to 6.3. Some may argue this isn't required but in my experience adjusting the pH has never caused me a problem and ignoring it has. Not like it's a major task anyway when you aren't mixing up nutrients.

Hi Vet

Thank you for your reply . I got my seeds from the product earth festival too

I am much the same as you I like to have a choice of strains and when I grow I tend to feed them all the same unless they getting sick

I will follow your grow with interest 

I just finished a grow and about to complete my grow and smoke report 

My next mission then is to plan next year's grow . I like to mix things up and next year I plan grow a photo period plant to completion as well as my usual mix of strains

Your plants looking good 

Happy grow

@hashimoto nice, I'll have to take a look at your diary. I like to have fun with my grows and try different things. I started about 4 years ago in a bedside stealth cabinet I built. Played around with cloning, reversing with coloidal silver, autos, photos, small pots, different training methods, built my own LED lights etc. I love it all.

Day 17. The girls settled okay into their new shoes. I might top the Purple Dick tomorrow. Got to be careful with watering now. Get those roots spreading out and filling these pots quick.

I’ve very intrigued by this grow VetSmoke. I usually can’t fit more than 2 plants in my .9 x .5 x 1.6 meter tent. Tuned in and curious….

@monkeydo A pleasure to have you join in. I have a thing with squeezing plants into small spaces. 🤣 Just finished 5 in a 70x70x180cm tent. I did 7 autos in this tent not too long ago. In various sized pots and two started a little later. Worked out well as I harvested a couple just as space was running out.

@mix cut side branches off to grow one main cola. She yielded 49g. Not bad for a 2 litre pot.

@mix like a space rocket of bud. 🤣 Tempted to try and do a run of autos that's a load of these at some point. SOG style. She's a White Widow auto.

Day 18. They're plodding along okay. I'll put them in a row under the Mars Hydro SP3000 soon.

@Woodl2 I popped a Jack Herrer seed in this Lego mug. Drilled a few holes in the bottom. Should be fun.🤣

@vetsmoke looks good mate, cool little extra on the run there too with the mug grow. Makes me think I should get some mug grows running just for fun in the small tent. Top stuff bro.

@bubblehok thanks bud. Think I've overwatered them slightly but nothing to worry about too much. It's always fun growing plants in tiny pots. Throw a couple in your tent mate. We'll have loads of little Christmas trees in December.🤣

Day 20. The pots are getting nice and light now so they'll get a drink soon. The Purple Dick has taken off while the others are staying pretty squat. I've topped them all.

  Alright, most excellent @vetSmoke, love them big ole floppy leaves man and your babies are a very nice color too. Looks like you've got this down to a science now and these one will follow in the footstep of the ones before. Cool beans on the Mug grow to, I hope we can all pull it off, maybe some of us might need a second chance though. lol And definitely don't say a word about it to @Bubblehok, we don't need him throwing spanners about, he'd probably fry the poor innocent little creator with his megaton imitation sun blazer, he probably wouldn't want to be a part of it anyway. lol 🤣 

  Come on Jack!! Thumbs Up

@bubblehok You could try filling the hole with cement so no water escapes out the bottom 🤔 🤣

@woodi2 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 well I may need another go as I managed to scoop out the top few cm of soil from the mug with the tent door. Don't ask. 😆 I found the seed and it still looked like it did the day I dropped it in. Could be a dud.

@vetsmoke, don't tell @Monkeydo, he'll make you take it to the Emergency Clinic for life saving measures that could be costly, give it CPR and hope for the best. 👍

Drip I.V. baby! In coco this allows the plants maximum nutrition with a minuscule root zone. One drop every 15 seconds of low EC feed would be fantastic. Not going to say it’s without issues tho as the nutrients want to clog the drip over time.

Day 22 for these ladies. Need to get the SP3000 hung soon and give them a bit more space.

The mug Jack Herrer was born breech so I've flipped it round carefully. Hoping it finishes sprouting properly. I've had it once before with a Gorilla Glue and that turned out just fine. 

Mainlined Gorilla Glue in a 4 litre pot.

Hi bud.

It’s the middle of the night and I can’t convert the size into feet so I can finger myself without asking.

The pic of the tent confuses me it looks like I would be taller than that it is, I don’t know if it’s just the way the pics been taken.

i was expecting a macro grow not monsters like above.

@monkeydo guess there is something to be said for Mainling ( sp ) 

nice pic 👍

@mix That mainlined Gorilla Glue was actually grown in a 40x40x100cm (1.3x1.3x3.2') tent. So not big at all. The same little tent these 4 new ones started in. They're currently sat in one side of a 1.6x3x5' tent.

@mix yes, the mainline plants look almost like solid buds in the end when done right. The one VetSmoke posted is an excellent example of the potential of the mainline and I find a mainline plant faster to trim once dried. There are far less small buds to mess with.

@monkeydo absolutely. Takes a little longer in veg to train it but it makes things a lot easier for the rest of the grow. Can get a similar result with quadlining but a little quicker. I heard on the podcast you were a fan of the mainline. Thats the only one I've done.
