Happy Easter my fellow canna lovers, and welcome to my 2021 grow diary....so here we grow again as time is edging nearer I thought id better get this up and running while I have some time on my hands. Firstly wishing all my fellow guerrillas who followed my grow last season, and any newbies who have joined the community since, the very best of luck for the season to come. I look forward to reading your diarys, learning and getting a better idea of what you folks plans are this season. So let's do this... right for me a few changes have been made to how I normally go about my business. I generally only ever run photo fems but this season I have taken a somewhat diff approach. I will be running a mix of autos, semi autos (fv) and photos in attempt to have a bit more variety as well as an early prize with some cheeky autos. The vars I have going out are as follows autos.... Cash crop ...cream of the crop Narco purps..cream of the crop Guerrilla glue ....fast buds Sweet cheese... expert seeds Runtz xl... sweet seeds Semi auto/photos..... Affiedaze...real gorilla seeds Purple freeze BX1....real gorilla seeds Fast zkittles....real gorilla seeds Opg x freezland...real gorilla seeds Serious 6...serious seeds Exo mob spurt..... @flighty Purple urkle....pyramid seeds Mwf....alfemco @Amarillo slim plots... knotweed plot Most of the photos and semi/autos are going on my main plot, had this plot a few years now and it always seems to produce some big trees so with some shorter strains going in there this year it will be interesting to see how they get in. I extended this plot last year and have also done another small extension this season to cater for the mwf.. I have had to open up a bit more of this space but it has come at a cost as im now not so well hidden at 1 end. My plan to get round this is once the knotweed grows up I will did some of it up and relocate it giving me back my cover all be it a lil further back. That shit grows rapid so im sure I can safely get myself well hidden again once the season gets going. Also new holes have been dug and are ready for filling in a few weeks time. auto plot... The aim for this idea is to get an early bit if bud and give me the much needed break from smoking last years rewards. This is a cheeky lil field that has been abandoned for a year or so, used to have horses on but is now overgrown so I'd say it deffo has the potential for some small autos. It has a footpath that runs to one side so its a bit of a creep and sneak stylee. Maintaining is gonna be difficult as I could be easily spotted on the land in daylight so it will be a bit of unsociable hours activity if needed ie watering feeds, supports and so forth. Holes have not been dug yet as im waiting to see how much the vegetation grows around the spots I have in mind on the other side of the field, 30 meters from footpath in some rough..Once I know this I'll wait for a full moon one eve and go get that done. regs plot This is still undecided, seen a potential 2 spots but still unsure of the safety of both so once again waiting on the growth of vegetation before deciding on what 1 to roll with. This plot is for flightys exo mob spurt as these are regs and don't want any hiccups with pollination should I not get a chance to visit for a while before they show sex.. (lesson learnt last season) wasn't gonna run these for this reason but they have some nice genetics in the mix so there may be something nice to find. Method.. So all my girls will be going in the ground into 2x3 foot pre dug holes. I have made a few changes this year as I cant be doing with trying to find decent comp and having to ammend the native soil that is prob 70% clay based. So I have been harvesting some topsoil and wood humus from a few unspoilt woodlands that I have been scouting out over the last month or so, although these were not good for growing that certainly had something to bring to the table. I have been doing lots of research into humus this last year with a plan to replicate natures way as much as possible. This should give me everything I need in order to provide my girls with the best possible start to life in the wild. My plan is to premix this with some coco coir, native soil Perlite, and water absorbing crystals and creat a perfect airy mix that drains well but also holds water and is full of nutrition and microbial activity. The main plot has already had some fbb and a coco block added to each hole but still work to be done here with regards to being ready for plant out.. im stock piling top soil from a nearby forest at this plot ready for when the time is right.. this will get mixed up in 1 big batch and holes filled once again when the time is right.. only other additives being used this season are maybe bio bizz fish mix If needed, FBB, and some SOP for later on in flower. Will be sticking to the bottomless builders buckets, cages, and tin towers as well as the perimeter fence for added protection against wildlife pests and so forth. Hopefully it isn't the bug fest we had last season as we had a pretty cold winter but will be using neem oil from the get go to try and stay in control should they decide to dine out on my girls once again. I will be watering from the nearby brook as I did last season the also extends to where the auto plot is so they will be getting the same if and when needed. The regs plot is gonna be tricky depending on what 1 I choose for those as only 1 of the 2 potentials has a water source. I have already created a new route to the water source at the knotweed plot and built a small dam to give me a higher water level so I can fill buckets much easier for watering. germination... Anyone who followed my grow last season will know i don't keep any equipment at home to aid the sowing or raising of seedlings. I normally just use my window cill so no lights have been nessaserry until now.. I figure as I have semi auto and auto vars I will need to creat a better light regime, something more stable so to avoid any stress issues or onset of early flowering. My plan for this is to build a small propagation box that will be placed in my lock up for this process. I will be using root trainers this year for the first time too so im thinking wooden box with a tube heater at the bottom then a shelf with 2 32 cell root trainers sets both with there own 30 cm t5 sunblaster light, and a small pc fan installed for some air movement.. will drill some holes for ventilation too so should be all good.. I have already bought the bits just need the fan still and build the box. I plan to get this set up to see how well it works down in a dark cold garage temp and rh wise. Will still be using the paper towel technique for germination after a 24h soak in tepid water, was thinking been straight in the trainers but some habits are hard to break That just about covers everything for now guys and girls will be updating all progress from now on right here for anyone following along..this is gonna be an interesting 1, full of excitement to get cracking but holding out a few more weeks. I Plan to germinate all photos and semi autos on 4/20 and plant out 1st/2nd week May depending on the weather. My autos i think will get wet around the begining of May and plan to have those out 3/4weeks later.. Let's all pray for a great season and may the ganja gods reward us for our efforts. Wising you all the very best of luck dudes and dudettes Much love Revive
