So! Here we go, welcome to Mackys Jack Herrer Grow Diary! This is the grow diary for the Seedsman Jack Herrer grow off.

Jack Herrer is one of my personal favourites, I have grown the Seedsman variety before, and it was incredible. When Seedsman asked what strain we would like to have in a grow off, this had to be our top choice.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone grow some of their own, it is a very enjoyable strain to grow and smoke. Your going to love it!

Let’s get down to business, and talk about how these seeds are going to be grown.

Lighting

Invisible Sun LED Light Used, ISH 480

Invisible Sun, specialise in horticultural LED lighting. They are the UK’s number one supplier of high range LEDs for growers.

The ISH 480, is a model of light that spreads across a length of 89cm, and 56cm in width. It has amazing coverage, ensuring all corners of your tent can get the light it needs.

This is perfect for growing cannabis in a screen of green (scrog) as the footprint of the light is much greater and delivers a much better quality of light, not only to more places at the top of the plants, but deeper into the canopy too.

With a 450w draw from the wall, but an output equivalent to a 800w HID light, we should see the ISH 480 perform well!

The Equipment

Though the ISH 480 is best for a 1m x 1m tent, I will be flowering the Jack herer, in a 1.2 x 1.2 (4 ft x 4ft) grow tent. This is because i will be scrogging the plants, but leaving ten centimetres space around the edges to avoid the buds touching the walls.

I will be using a standard 5 inch RVK extractor for my extraction, with a carbon filter. There will be fans in the grow tent too to keep air well circulated.

Medium and Nutrients

I’m going to grow the Jack Herrer in Canna Coco Professional, and use the Canna Range of nutrients. I have been growing in coco, and using canna for a while now, and always had great results. So this will be my chosen method for this grow too.

Medium, Canna Coco

Always a quality medium, pre treated and ready to grow in. If coco isn’t treated properly before using it to grow cannabis, you will suffer with Cal/Mag deficiencies early on. CANNA coco, has already been treated, and buffered. This is my prefered medium, and what I will be using for this grow.

Nutrients

Though I have used many different nutrient ranges, I have been using CANNA for my last few grows. I figure, if they make the coco I always use, I should try their nutrients too. I have been impressed with the results, and the price of CANNA.

Additional Nutrients

I like to use a silica additive from around week 3 in veg, up until week five in flower. This helps keep the plants growing strong, and healthy. My favourite brand for silica is Buddhas Tree Solar Green

Also, just incase I might need to top up the cal mag to prevent a deficiency, I have Vitalink Cal/Mag.

And of course, to help with adjusting pH level, I have pH up, and pH down.

EC and pH Meter

You can’t underestimate the importance of accurate pH and EC, so I have good reliable meters. To measure my pH, I have a Blue Lab pH Pen, and for EC, I have the Hanna Groline EC Meter.

Jack Herrer, The Strain

Jack Herrer, Seedsman Seeds, JAck Herrer Grow Diary

The Jack Herrer strain was named in honour of the late cannabis activist, polemicist and author of the all-time classic “The Emperor Wears No Clothes”. It has become established as something of a classic marijuana strain itself combining as it does the out-there euphoric, cerebral effect of a pure sativa strain with the resin-producing qualities of a pure indica. It was originally created by Sensi Seeds by crossing a Haze with a Northern Lights #5 x Shiva Skunk cross.

The Plan for the Jack Herrer Grow Off

I plant to grow these plants for their whole lives under the ISH 480. The light is intense, but I think if I leave a good distance between the plants and the light, the plants can gradually grow into the light, and not be stressed too much.

I would really like to see, if it’ll work. Maybe it’ll be too much, and the ISH 480 is a strong light. But I have to try it, the type of light given out by the ISH is far better than any other light I have, so I want the plants to be used to it asap.

The plan is to let 4 x Jack Herrer grow to the third or fourth node and then top them. They will be fed on just Canna A and B, with the occasional bit of Rhizo, and a small amount of silica.

After the plants have been topped, they will be trained for a week or so, to get into the right structure. The will then be trained into the screen, and veg until around 2/3rds of the screen is full. At this point the plants will be flipped to flower.

There will about 2-3 weeks of ” the stretch“, the plants will be trained throughout the stretch, until flowers begin to form. I will lollypop the plants and this point, level off all of the branches for a good even canopy, and then let the plants flower.

The plants will be harvested probably past their expected date, as I like to have a little bit of amber trichomes on my buds.

Updates

I will be updating the dairy here, a few times a week with pictures. I will also be making videos of the progress once a week for our youtube channel.

If anyone would like to grow along with me, you have links to everything you need in this post, so feel free to click and buy from the links provided.

Germination

Here are the seeds:

Seedsman Jack Herrer Seeds, germinating Jack Herrer

5 of Seedsman Finsest Jack Herrer. I will be popping four of these.

They will be soaked for a few hours n water, and then planted straight into coco.

Should see a shoot with in a couple of days.

jack herrer seeds soaking in water,

They are soaking as we speak. I am now going to prare some coco in the posts, and plant them.

Next update will be done later this evening, when they are happy in their new home.

Good Luck Everyone!

Just want to say, good luck everyone, I really hope you enjoying growing the Jack Herrer. It really is a quality strain, that you will want to grow again and again.

Big shout out to Tom at Seeedsman too, for giving us the oppurtunity to run this aweosme grow off. Rememebr, they was not only geneorus enough to provide us with free seeds, but they will also give a €250 vouchers to the best dairy at the end of the grow off!!

Entry is closed!! No more can enter. I have sent all addresses to Seedsman, and your seeds should be with you already, or on the way.

Have fun everyone!

  1. Have 3 JH been saving to use, want to make sure I know what I’m doing before planting them. After seeing yours, will be tough to hold onto them lol. How’s the flavours and potency? Always heard it was a fantastic strain.

  2. Yer man, such overly weed too! 

    Had a couple of different phenos. The flavour differed slightly. One was more of an aniseed kind of after taste, the other like those “love hearts” sweets.

    Only one, half a seed found, so maybe my worries of hermie was way premature and just over cautious because of Twisted and TG having issues.

    Quality weed as usual! Ive never been let down by Seedsmans Jack Herrer. 

    Nearly over now with this grow off i think? 

  3. Excellent work u old wizard, pure class👏👏👏seen 1 before like that video 😉but that was even better 😁when u germ a few more beans next put in a wee auto for me , what to see what the ish would do for fishes autos. 🤔

  4. SO!! It is done 🙂 Final harvest weight, ( after me picking bits of popcorn for a couple of days 😉 ) Is 524 grams. 18 1/2 Ounces! 

    Not too shabby. 

    I have made a video of the whole grow as a montage right here 🙂

    Hope you like it!

    Ill get more info up tomorrow, its late now 🙂 But it has been smooth grow, and so far, no seeds found, maybe only one plant had the so fingers crossed on that note 🙂 

    Blaze one up and press play on that video! It took a long time to put together 😉 

  5. Buds looks good man, dense, no obvious sign of seed so at least they aint busting out the sides lol. 

    Smells delicious! 

    All these hermes I’ve seen recently really makes me consider going to regs and getting me a good stable mom! 

    What dyoull think about that

    Also, good an epic montage video of the whole thing coming soon 🙂 

  6. @macky well….here is the upside….you can potentially run them again if love the crop! But cant wait to see the final product seeds or not. That was an incredible looking grow man. Seeds and all I’d be happy. Do you think seedsman will help you guys out?

  7. Well, after a long a gruelling harvest, which is still going on with the help of Mrs Macky, I can confirm, that my Jacks hermied too 🙁

    There is definitely seed in some of this bud, i just don’t know how bad it actually is. Is it full of seeds, is it just a few? 

    Fuck knows, either way, so far we have ha 3 hermies from this Jack Herrer Grow off!

    Shocked man, I recommended this strain, and seeds man so you’ll could see how good their strains were…… It definitely didn’t go according to plan lol

    No signs of nanas, balls, nothing, just seeds in the lower buds. 

    It seems to be more prominent on one plant that the other three, so maybe they will be ok, but I doubt it. 

    Not the end of the world of course, buts its still a bit shit! 

    Feel really let down by Seedsman. I have grown Jack many times and never had any problems. Now we do a grow off and this collection of stick is faulty as fuck. not cool 

     

     

  8. Wow those look amazing. So is everyone getting hermies? Man I hope not. Like Macky said this stuff smells so good, and I cloned all the phenos so I’m hoping to keep the best one or two around for a good long time. 

  9. Take a look at the colours on these. Five days into the flush, yellowing up nicely now. 

    The grow has been a good one, the smell of the jac is sooooooo good! Really looking forward to having jacks in the jars again. 

    You can see three different phenotypes i think. From the screen the plants at the bottom left, anf top right, seem to be very similar. But the one at the back left has bought out a lot more purple that the others, and the one of the bottom right, has really orange pistols compared to the others too. 

    With the flush, the smell is really coming out. The plants are ripening nicely. Going to have a check of the trichs this evening and see where we stand there. But these plants are not long for this world lol.  

  10. Going to Start the flush tonight. They have been in flower for about 8 weeks, ten days maybe 14 on the flush and then we will see if she is ready for harvest 🙂 

    Don’t want to push them too long seeing as balls have been found on some of the Jacks. Ill get a pic up if i could find my fucking phone again lol

  11. @lovetoflyfish I know I love this guy! Humble and helpful. That’s what Percy’s is all about. I actually think I love growing weed just because of this forum. Makes it so much more rewarding to have a group like this. Sucks he wasnt my neighbor tho to be able to try some of that Jack lol
     

  12. Jack Herrer Update!

    Plants are now being fed 18L a time, between four plants.

    In this 18L of water goes:

    10ml Cal/mag
    25ml Canna A and B
    20ml PK 13/14

    That’s all. A couple more weeks until flush

    On of the Jacks seems to have been overfed, as the pistils look much more orange than the others. A fine example of how a plant can look done, but still have plenty of time until the end. 

    The screen is a beast now. Scary lol. I just water it and get out of there before it wants to devour me 😉 Jumanji like

     

  13. Welcome to the jungle lol. 

    Not much going on other than flowers growing 🙂  Going to add anther fan to the under side of the canopy blowing upwards tomorrow i think. Just too bushy and I don’t wanna take unnecessary risks 

  14. @macky that’s a THICK forest top there man. Wow!! I would not want to have to trim that canopy again but you may be right….and have to. Once more wouldnt hurt them too bad I dont think but you’ve got more time in on this than me lol. Cant wait to see them in 4 weeks!!! Lol
     

  15. Diary update

    Nothing much going on now, after all the time ive spent in there over the last month, I feel bored lol….. need to pop some more beans soon so i got plants to play with lol 

    Flowers are boooomin. I love growing Jack Herrer. 

    Food is staying at:

    per 15L

    20ml canna a n b
    20ml PK 13.14
    5ml Cal Mag
    5ml Buddhas tree

    Ill see how they do at this level, but i’ve been feeding it this for a week or so no, and they seem happy with it.

    EC come to 1.6, come out 1.65Ph in 5.8-6.0, depending on how much I can be bothered to fuck around with it lol. But comes out 6.2, everytime

    Perfection, everything is going really well, can complain at all!! 

    Take a look:

  16. Really nice job man. When I showed people at the talk the slide with the first pic of your SCROG they were jacked that it was only 4 plants. I said ‘just you wait…’ Probably would have shit their pants if they saw it now. ? 

  17. That day has come, the final train and defoliation! Took me three hours!!! 

    3 hours!!

    But you can see in the video why. 

    Everything under the screen has gone. If it didn’t reach the canopy, it was removed. What did reach the canopy, anything below 3 nodes wa also removed. 

    This leaves (hhaah) me with just an even canopy at the top, and load of space for airflow underneath. It also removes all the shit that wont get enough light, and the plant can focus its energy on the good top buds above the screen.

    This is it now, training done, trimming done, just feeding until harvest time, lets see how they go!!

     

  18. @macky!!!! Wow man. Took some time away from this place and BAM. Those look incredible. 
    Also….I 4th the voice notion lol
    Gonna be getting my seeds ready for my outdoor this year again. Given my lovely amazing wife doesnt scold me too much for paying TOO MUCH attention to the plants lol

  19. Posted by: @hart

    Training at the back of tent must be tense, hard on the back?

    I unzip the side of the tent so i can get to it easily. The side on the back left is the hardest to reach, can get there, I have to reach for them lol. worth it man, training is just about done now so Im done with all that shit lol 

  20. Right, done a big trim on these girls a few days ago. Finished all major training and will let them grow for a few more days. 

    After that, final trim under the canopy, and last train to get all the stems in their own space. 

    Flowers are now forming, and I have changed the feed to 

    For 15l of water:

    15ml canna a and b

    25ml Canna PK

    5ml Calmag

    7.5 ml of buddhas tree. 

    They are hungry girls, gotta monitor the feed for a while now to make sure they are getting what they need 🙂 

    Loving it

  21. Here is a look under the scrog, you can see how man branches and stems have grown. Its getting a bit tangled now. But Ill sort that in the final trim 🙂

    Here is the, well one of the big stems i broke, i took the other on off is it wasnt going to come back, and now i cant find where the damage was done lol But here is an example of one of the break,s pretty big, but i just left it supported by the screen and she was fine after a couple of days.

    And A pick of the scrog, just four plants! Ten weeks and it’ll be full of ripe buds! 

  22. Though I would update you all on the feed, and get some pics up….. im typing on the PC as i hate typing on the phone. and its easier to add pics from phone, so i got choices lol

    Anyway, Mixed up a new feed to day to try and push them a little harder. here are growing alot and could do with the extra food. 

    In 15L of water, I put:

    20ml of Canna A and B ( each)

    15ml PK, They will be needing it soon

    7.5ml Buddhas tree silica

    10ml Cal Mag

    10ml Rhizo

    This bring me to an EC of 1.4.

    Then i pH, and feed the plants.

    Also, the water i feed to them is 18c in temperature. They seem to like it when its that cool 

    Had a few breaks, which ill show in the pics below. And still haven’t lolly popped them yet. There are plenty of smaller shoot trying to make their way to the screen, i think ill give them a week or so before the massive trim to get rid of anything that doesn’t reach the screen. 

    Eventually, the aim is, to have an even canopy, that sits around 2 inches above the screen, and nothing at all but stem and branches underneath it. 

    This gives perfect light coverage over the whole grow, instead of just a few tops.

    Don’t look at this and think it is complex!! You can all do this, it just takes a good screen and some good lighting. It is the number one way to maximise your yield indoors. Try it! 

  23. I made a video the other day and didn’t upload it, so might as well make a new one for today, considering how fast these things are growing! 

    Getting a bit hungry now, need to bump up the food to give them what they need for the stretch that’s coming. 

    Been flipped for about 4-5 days now, not sure, i don’t keep count. But when flowers start to form, training will stop, ill do a trim, and then let them do their thing. not far away now! Another week of training maybe? 

    How many heads here you think? lol 

  24. Fucking hell, look at the difference in just 3 days! 

    A fine mix between quality lighting and epic genetics!! Going to be flipping in the next few days i think! Moving very quickly. 

    Feed is very much the same. Mixing 15L of water, and into that goes:

    7.5 ml of Buddhas Tree Solar Green
    10ml, Vitalink calmag
    25ml Canna A
    25ml Canna B
    About ten drop of pH down. 

    Stopped the rhizo on these now, as as you can see in the video, the roots are filling the pot now. Need to flip soon, because i’m cant transplant these gain lol. 

    Very happy plants, can’t complain at all 🙂 Hope you are all enjoying growing your jack as much as i’m enjoying this one 🙂

     

  25. The screen is up!! 

    Snapped a branch whilst training the other day, taped her up and she seems to be recovering well, other than that, just normal healthy growth! 

    Things are looking real good, growth rate is good too. 

    I have put the screen up now, and will start training them into it for about a week, maybe ten days, before flipping them to flower.

    The ISH 480 is doing a great job on these too! The plants love it. I got a good feeling that this light is going to make a very impressive show when the flowers come! I cant wait to see what it can do with a scrog! 

  26. Trimmed the top off these pots today, they were stopping the fan from getting to the lower parts of the plants, so snip snip. 

    things are coming along really nicely. Stupidly fast, I am going to get the screen over them in the next few days, I think they are ready for it already! 

    They are absolutely flying! 

    You might be able to see that I have done some training today. I hate training the old school way ( string ) when using fabric pots. Its hard to find a good stable anchor point. so i like to use these things called ” bends”. You can see them in this pic:

    Great little things, but they can easily break stems, and take practise to use. These things will stay on until the branches become  more wooden, if i take them off before then, the branch will snap. 

    When you take them off, it’s like the branch is super cropped too. Hated them at first, but with some time, we have grown to be good friends and i think i need more lol 

    Haven’t fed today, giving it a day to settle and let them stretch them root into the new medium a bit. But back on daily feed from tomorrow. 

    Just incase you were wondering, right now the feed is:

    Canna A and B: 1.6 ml Per litre Each
    Buddhas Tree Solar Green: 0.4 ml per litre
    CAL/Mag: 0.4 ml Per Litre
    Rhizo: 0.8 ml Per Litre

    This gives me an EC of 1.26, ph at 5.8

    Next update, will be the screeeeeeennnn!!!!! Moving fast with this grow! Hope you all enjoying the show!

  27. Posted by: @scottishmac

    you might have me with this fan

    don’t worry mate ill take it out when the screen goes in to make it fair 😉 lol 

    It all looks nice, but I started in a 60cm x 60cm, and a shitty light and fan. just upgraded over time lol. One day you might have your very own am o2 as well lmao 😉 

  28. Time for an update, and things are going really well 🙂 

    Roots were growing out the bottom of the pots again, roots grow quick when you use rhizo. So I decided to get them in their final pots now, let them settle and get some training done. 

    This mean they need more space, so they have been moved into the flowering tent. 

    They won’t be flowered for a while yet, but im prepping them for the screen asap! Here is a quick video of how they are coming along:

    feed is 5ml per 3l for canna a n b
    1.25 ml of Silicone per 3 L
    And 1.25 ml Cal mag per 3 L

    EC comes up to: 1.26, haven’t checked the run off yet as they need a couple of days to settle in the new medium for it to be accurate. 

    Ph going in at 5.8. 5L each until i got run off from the first feed. Im sure it will be less next time 😉

    Ill be leaving them again, every other day for waterings, jus to encourage the roots to grow a little faster then back onto daily waterings. 

    Im hoping to have the screen mounted by the next update. Eager to get it up, but it’s not time yet lol. 

    You can see as well, i have the pots raised, this is to make it easier to get the runoff out. Once the plants are in the screen, there is no moving them, so you have to prepare for this. Another reason why i had to move my tent today, I need access to the sides to properly train. 

    Its a mission, but i know it’s all gonna be worth it when that screen is full of fine jack herrer flowers mmmmm 

    Long one, thank for reading 🙂

    Unsure whether to stick with canna professional

    yer man, ill keep you informed mate. I’ve had no problems at all with Canna Coco, awesome medium. But you gotta try these new things right 😉

    Usually im against the use of perlite in coco. Tried it before, didn’t really seems like ti was worth it and have used 100% coco for a while now. Lets see how things go 🙂 

  30. @mackyThat eco thrive new coco I got last time I went, like you I though nice one is already mixed with perlite and added microbes. But I didn’t really think I just used it like I would the pro canna coco that’s pre buffered. And it fried my seedlings. I only fed them ph’d Water with the tiniest bit of root stim. I’m sure I run water through the pots after to check the ec and it was too high for seedlings? Probably user error though haha. Sure it was the same stuff ? was brilliant for transplanting my bigger girls but let me know how you find the coco ?? Unsure whether to stick with canna professional.

  31. Got some new coco today!! Went grow shop to get some canna coco, but saw that new shit, by eco thrive, coco, 30% perlite, with microbes added n shit for better root growth. 

    Heard about it a while back, and knew it was coming at some point, so had to snap it up!! 

    Think ill be putting the Jacks in this, but im gonna test it on my Cindys first lol 

  32. Well, I fed the girls at 1.0 Ec, and thought I would check the run off EC, and see where we stand…. 

    0.5…..

    Yer they are hungry lol. More a n b in tomorrow’s feed, im happy with how much cal/mag they are getting. 

    Ill see how they look tomorrow before i decide what they will get in the feed 🙂 

    This is the beauty of growing in coco, you’re able to monitor the feed like this and know what your plant is lacking. A nice boost in A n B will make her much happier. 

    Ill let you all know how it goes 🙂 

    Oh and BTW, i know I said they are hungry, and they look yellowish in these pics, but they have a nice healthy shade of green, just the ISH 480 is a monster lol. Ill get light off pics for the next update 

  33. Ok. They plants are doing well, but they are getting hungry now. 

    I always keep the feed low, easier to fix an under fed plant than an overfed one 😉 And they are asking for more now

    The feed has changed. 

    I mix nine litres of water, at 18-20c

    I then add:

    Canna A n B, 10ml of Each
    Cal Mag, 5ml
    Rhizotonic, 5ml

    This brings my EC up to an even 1.0, they have previously been held at 0.8 

    I will be monitoring the EC from now, to see how the plants are eating. They could maybe do with a little bit more A n B, just to get some extra nitrogen in there. 

    The Grow Tent:

    The two at the back are auto colorado cookies, the smaller ones on the outside, are Cinderella Jacks. The Jack Herrers are in the centre of the tent. As you can see, they look a bit hungry, but not as yellow as this lol. Under the light they look a lot lighter than they are under natural light. 

    Jack Herrer 1

    Doing Lovely, no complaints at all, really coming on nicely after the topping and growing faster than expected. 

    Jack Herrer 2

    She seems to be suffering more from the lack of food more than the others. She is showing sing of cal deficiency i think? I have upped the amount of calcium, and we will see if there are improvements over the next 48 hours. 

    Jack Herrer 3

    She is my favourite, but don’t tell the others lol 

    Jack Herrer 4

    Doing very nicely as well. Such a lovely strain to grow 

     

    I think within a couple more days, training will begin, the side shoots are already growing out nicely. There will be no defoliation, only training. The plants are getting a lot of good light, and the more leaves they have, the more it can use this light. I don’t do a trim until closer to flowering time if it is needed. For now, make use of what the plant has, leave it on, and train the plant. 

    If there is no improvement on number 2 after 48 hours, i will look into the EC levels of run off and feed, and see what the potential problem could be 

    Thanks for reading everyone, hope you’re enjoying the show so far!

    Well there’s plenty of width but height might be my problem with the one at 20″ inches now. The other one is 15″ and should be ok. I should of wired the bigger one down. But I wanted to try my first without the LST and wiring them over. Though I have been giving them the bend behind the inner nodes. Next time I’m topping at 3 nodes again or 4. My smaller one that I did top at the 3rd looks really good with branches reaching out every where inbetween (in the middle) the main stems. 

  35. @macky
    So Macky. With my two Mexican Haze sativa’s, one being at day 53 almost to the full 8th week and the other one at day 41, tommorow makes 6 full weeks. Do you think I should go ahead and switch them over to flower or try and stretch them a few more days to get the smaller one a little bigger, it was topped at the 3rd node. The bigger one was on the 7th node. Yesterday it was 21&1/2″ in height and the smaller one was 15″. I’ve been getting anywhere from at least an inch a day if not 2″ in growth some days. 

  36. They are on the fourth mate, I did notice at the end that it wasn’t mentioned lol. I dont even check any more really, they get to a certain size and im happy. Topping, then training. Just gotta leave them for a week or so to grow them shoots out….. but these jacks seem fast, so maybe a few days lol. We shall see. 

  37. @macky
    Did you top them at the 3rd or 4th node? I don’t think I heard you mention it in the vid. 
    With my first grow and 4 plants, two sativa MH and two GG autos. I topped them all at different nodes, from 7 down to 3rd. To see what I can get away with when it comes to height. I only have 7ft ceilings. 
     
     
     
     
     

  38. Another video update, with a cameo of some autos lol

    They are doing well, not bother from the transplant, growing well so i thought it would be a good time to top them. 

    Feed is still the same. For every 3l of water, i use 2.5 ml and Canna A, 2.5 ml of Canna B, and 1 ml of cal mag. 

    They got some rhizotonic in yesterday feed too, just a ml per 3L. They are looking lovely. I’ll be introducing the buddha tree solar green next week. Maybe start training soon too 🙂 

  39. Well, everything is coming on really nicely!! This light really does make a difference to the way the plant grows compared to HID and other LED I have used. The structure of the plants are perfect, great internodal spacing, and will be bushy, you can already tell. This is going to be an amazing scrog lol

    Anyway, transplant day. Roots are growing out of the bottom of the pot.

    At this stage, I will transplant the plants into bigger pots, but not massive yet. I do one more transplant with photos, at around a week before I flip them. As these will go into a screen , they will go into bigger pots a little sooner. So i’m going to give them maybe three weeks in these, then transplant into their final  pots and start getting them into the screen.

    Feeding them the same, just more water now for bigger pots. Did a big feed on these as they were freshly transplanted. 

    2.5ml A n B per 3 litres

    1ml Cal Mag per 3 L

    Little bit of Eco thrive (about a 1g per 3 litres) in the water to get some microbes in there for the roots to live with. 

    And that’s about it.

    Be topping them very soon i think, maybe a week. Lets see how they do 🙂 

  40. But dont take the piss 😉 lol. we don’t wanna see you veggin in 6 months lol. A normal grow 🙂 5-6 weeks is enough usually 🙂 We have other grow offs to do you know Ned 😉 Youre gonna need space for the next one lol 

  41. So, with the end of week one, nothing has really happened, but they survived the ISH! 

    I had them around 5 ft away from the light initially, and they stretch badly. I took them out of the pot, and reburied them at a decent height. They seem to be well settled now. 

    The light still seems a bit strong, but I would prefer them to get used to it asap, and start booming in growth lol. 

    To feed them, I get 3l of water, and add 2.5ml, of A, and 2.5 ml of B, ph the water, and feed. Right now i’m doing this every other day, to try and encourage root growth. 

    Another week or so like this, and they will be ready for transplanting. 

  42. These girls stretched!!! Which tells me im too far away from the light, that’s good, it shows the seedlings can handle it, its just about finding the best distance now. 

    I took the seedling from the coco, and re buried them deeper as they were like 2 inches tall. I’ll get a video up tomorrow of their progress. They are now much closer to the ish, lets hope its not too close. Maybe 3 ft now 

  43. Ok, threw together a video of me planting the seeds, its late, so its dark, lighting isnt great but i did what I could lol. If any of you’ll want to add some youtube vid to our channel then let me know we find a way to get them on too 🙂
