  1. Finally, either fashionably late or sneakily waiting to steal everyone else's ideas before I start? Actually I've been waiting for space in a flower groom but equally happy to see what else has been going on with everyone else's pots Plan changed/ evolved many times till now but I think I'm settled on; organic, no-till(meaning worms and wood louse) and some extra little helpers like water retaining crystals. This has been mixed and has been sitting/cooking for a couple of weeks. My soil is a mix of Irish moss peat, e.w.c, rice hulls, kelp meal, alfalfa meal, Epsom salts, trim from last run and some water retaining crystals Also I plan to "pot up/on" from the standard size to the king size(any objectors please speak now or forever hold your ) This extra little bit of soil will have more water retaining crystals, e.w.c and a 1/4 bio tab for when the plant is a little more able to take more food. credit to @crticalcontent for the biotab idea Will also be using/copying @leapsure skemor idea of the tights and collar to help hold it all in and with watering Already thought of the need to hang my pot and have noticed this has already been done too. All going well I'm going to veg for 1-2 weeks then pot up and flick within a few days of that. All this^^^ for a flippin pot noodle Some pics... Beans were soaked in warm water for a couple of hours to bring them up to temp from being in the fridge then popped into pre-soaked jiffy thingy's. Some of the bits and mods... some holes Hopefully back in a few days with some baby bubbas
  2. First off. Thanks to@HSO-Markfor sorting out the beans.... after all kinds of weird things going on during germination .....we finally have a little Bubba princess. She's gone from the jiffy into her noodle cup in a mix of 80% light mix / 20% Coco + volcanic mineral powder, and Charge for good measure. The pics will have a purple tint to them as I'm running a quantum board and a viper 450 side by side. Day 10 Day 15-20 ish. She's very slow going, but I've read that is to be expected... Very compact at the moment, runt? I don't care.... She's special! I've been training this H.S.O. Green Crack clone to create a throne for the little princess... All for now.... Good luck fellow noodlers! Zabz.
  3. Afternoon Uk420, Right then I decided to crack on, as I couldn't remember when the start date was, or if there was one,but needless to say I remembered the important part, I am in I am going to run no medium, except a root plug, I was going to rig up a bubbler but the pump sounds like an undersized person with the fastest hammer in the world, possibly even the universe,so unfortunately that is a non runner, instead I am doing something similar, only using one teeny weeny small pump,that's all I am going to say. What I will say is that I solemnly swear that no roots will be growing out of the pot.Not on my watch. I'll update every week or so with progress reports and pics of full pot, bottom and top shots and hopefully some amazing root structures. So I have a bubbas gift from Hso cheers @HSO-Mark put into soak this very day, Properly prepared pot products preform pretty pukka, peachy,Jj
  4. firstly i will start off by thanking @HSO-Mark for the free seeds for entering this competition. thanks mate i germed the seed in a little 1" pot with seedling compost and covered it with cling film and it broke the surface within 48hrs, that was yesterday, iv started it in a little pot because i'm going to pot up into a half liter pot and once that's rooted out i'll go to the pot noodle pot, iv still not decided what pot to use yet, iv got a normal one here already but i wouldn't mind trying the kingsize pots though, it will maybe add an extra couple of grams to the final weigh in at the end with them being a little bigger. i have it sitting at the bathroom window atm but i had it in beside the flower room during lights on last night, i'll keep it in the flower tent and just keep moving it when the lights go off in the morning until i can get my new tent set up in 2 weeks time, i will update at least weekly from now on but it will probably be more than that once the baby takes off, i will finish up with a couple of pics i took earlier today, sorry about the quality, they aren't the best.....
  5. Peace and light to all who visit this sacred grow chamber. Thus begins my HSO diary many thanks to @HSO-Mark for sending the seeds and organizing the seeds for diary doo daa. I am a simple man with a simple grow for me and my good lady. It consists of a 250w hps in 75x75x160 budbox for late veg and flower. The seeds are started under a t5 in a 60x60x90 green cube on its side. They will start life in some house and garden light mix then into the bat special for super veg growth. They will be fed lots of PM root stim early on and no grow nutes as the bat special is good until flower. Biobizz bloom 2 weeks into flower until the end. I have some fishmix on hand too. See Simples!! heres what happened about an hour ago....... So fingers crossed for some signs of life soon i will be misting the plugs twice daily until they go into the lightmix. Take it easy folks and remember ...... smoke some grow some smoke some more!! lil d.
  6. Hey guys. I'm back with another HSO diary! After loving the Sapphire OG's so much from my last run - with BOTH phenos coming out cracking, I decided they deserved the RDWC all to themselves for another run. This time they're getting the SCROG net all to themselves. I've upgraded my tent from 1.2mx1.2mx2m to 2mx2mx2m. The difference is massive. I have an 8inch vortex fan and carbon filter (variable), with a 5inch fan for the cooltubes and lots of passive intake holes. Plenty of fans for air movement and plenty of light. Thanks again to @HSO-Mark for providing me with these awesome seeds (amongst some others). Lots more diaries from me to come! Nutrients being used (at various stages). Never used PK boosters before, going to take it easy with them and introduce to my res for a week or two, from about week three post 12-12. This is the SCROG net I'll be using. The string you see on it in this picture is NOT the string on it currently. I've upgraded to some mason line. So off I was! Only problem is... when I originally took the seeds out of their lovely wooden block for my first run, I ended up mixing up the vials and not knowing which strain was which. As I had 3 seeds left of each strain, my only option really was to pop two of each, let them grow a little in the bubblers, then use my eye and experience from last grow to identify the strains and remove the Green Cracks from the system. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Green Cracks, but I loved the Sapphire OG's much more! I'd planned to transplant the GC's from the RDWC system into soil as soon as I was able to differentiate between them with certainty. Here's a photo from just after I'd transplanted the Green Cracks into soil. They're the ones sitting in the slightly larger pots on top of the buckets, far left and bottom right (not the fabric pots). They didn't like the transplant too much, and sulked around doing nothing but looking hungry for about a week or so. They soon recovered in time, with a little TLC. Thankfully they had a good head start in the RDWC, so they've ended up at least as large as the other soil plants. Here they are in larger pots, about a week before the flip... So now the Sapphire OG's have the large RDWC to themselves, they can spread their legs a bit and crack on! IIRC this photo is about a week into the flip. Flipped on 28th May. I vegged the lot under a 600W MH conversion bulb, added a second for the first week of flower, then swapped the bulbs out for 2 600W x Omega Super HPS's, and added the MH back into the centre as a third light. Here's my lighting... Did a bit of tweaking with the ducting, trying to shorten the distance that the hot air is travelling. As you can see I've swapped my MH conversions in the cooltubes for the Super HPS, and added a MH back in, onto the cheap winged reflector. Here's the current canopy....coming along nicely - although it's been hard to train this time as the shape I'm working with is coming from a line of two plants, rather than a nice sqaure of four plants. Not much more training left before they stop stretching. These aren't big stretchers at all, so I've still ended up with quite the bush rather than flat canopy. We'll get there, but I'm debating how much to strip from the underneath. I'd appreciate some advice from anyone experienced in these things. Here are my current ambient and res temps. I snapped a top branch from one of the Sapphire OG's while I was training it, so decided to see if I could save it as a cut. Three weeks later she's showing some nice roots. Thanks for stopping by, until next time! SVS

  10. Hi ALL, Firstly thanks to @HSO-Mark for the seed,all arrived well, im currently popping the seeds ready for my grow, gonna nip out an get the pot noodles today and pick up some peat moss. Big shouts to Mark for this and ill be back soon with pics and updates
  11. Hi guys, my seeds have just landed today, big thank you to Mark! I really hope I can do you proud and smash out a well deserved diary for you. I am going to be germinating them Saturday and due to issues at home i.e the missus won't let me have any indoors .. They will be germing round a close friends house under T5's until mid may and will be planted out into 1 or 2 plots.. I have DinaMed CBD, Critical + 2.0 and Blue dream auto. I'm planning on popping 2-3 of each along with some other genetic's but we'll keep them separate. Also if you like Mark I can make a new topic for the blue dream's in the HSO category I just wanted to save my own confusion haha. I will update when I have germinated them and when I'm doing any prep work on the plot but for now there's not much to show as I'm being restricted to only being able to do the vegging around a friends house.. Also for the HSO pot noodle challenge that will be flowered in his setup so no worries on that one I'll keep you all posted thanks for popping in!

  15. A quick video shot a couple of years ago showing how our packaging is made and how your seeds will arrive from HSO The seeds are super protected in a beautiful wooden package, lazer etched/burnt with all the strain info and logos creating some of the more beautiful packaging on the market Kind regards HSO-Mark..
  16. Hey, so I posted this yesterday in the grow diaries section, totally oblivious that this section was here. My bad, sorry. anyway.... I will be doing the diary in here as its specifically for HSO seeds. 5 fem Bubba's Gift all be soaked, and planted. I did this yesterday 02/02/18 I'm just going to run them in my test tent (I do this whenever I go from seed) they are under a 600w HPS I've seen some good reports about these guys on here, and this strain in particular. hope you guys enjoy the show.

  21. HSO Black D.O.G @ The House of Freax I thought it fitting to start this diary with one of my alltime favourite tunes, Black Dog by the mighty Led Zeppelin. So ive just popped 3 BDOG beans into some Root Riot cubes First up is a huge thank you to @HSO-Mark and all the guys at the office who made this grow possible by supplying me with some very nicely packaged HSO beans. So i decided to get these in now ready to take the place of my Dinafem girls that are in the tent at the moment. I moistened the top of the cubes with a small drizzle of warm water and shook off the excess before putting the seeds into the cubes. As soon as they show themselves they will be put into the Aerogarden for a few days to help bring on the roots before i put them into 4 inch cubes ready to be put onto the NFT tray when they have developed enough of a root system to get them started properly. Ill be using Ionic nutes and additives throughout the grow as usual. Just gotta wait till they pop their heads up now and then i can carry on with this diary. Cheers for looking in. To be continued.......... Freax
  22. First of all, big thanks to HSO Mark (sorry won't let me tag) for providing me with these awesome seeds. I've never grow anything from HSO, so I'm excited to experience their genetics. I've heard great things about the Blue Dream, but after spending some time reading up on and drooling over a few of their strains, I decided to go with these interesting sounding ladies. Arrived in the post on Wednesday. So into the rapid rooters they go! I'm going to be growing them in my 4 bucket (with 5th control) RDWC, under a dimmable 600w hps, in a 1.2mx1.2m tent, with scrog. For now they're staying in their dome in a warm cupboard until I see those first signs of life. Wish me luck guys!
  23. Welcome to my HSO seeds4diary and many thanks firstly to @HSO-Mark and HSO themselves for the chance to try some of their genetics. I've titled it Sheep DOG trials since I'll be running EWE-2 and Black DOG. As I explained to Mark I will be doing mostly a pictorial diary with the odd bit of commentary but it will (after this initial monster update) be mainly pics. Firstly the scene setting as it were; A quick run down of the environment etc so everyone knows whats what. Environment : Nursery Cupboard with 125CFL and small fan ! veg tent and 1 flower tent (1.2m*2 each) (400w MH and 400w HPS respectively) 2 x 5" RVK extraction fans (passsive intake) 1 12" floor fan 1 35" tower fan 1 x 6 litre capacity humidifier in veg tent Nursery Stats - 23 -25 c temps 50 - 60 RH (125 CFL lighting) used for slow veg Veg stats - 21 -25 c temps - 40 - 70 RH I'll be using rainwater and some Biobizz bottled Grow and Bloom but otherwise I'm trying to reduce the bottles to a bare minimum. My soil is All Mix until final pot up. I am using TNC Mycorrmax for the first time with this grow as well. I have also taken to a regime of regular foliar sprays weekly to add seaweed and clean water I am also trialling a trace micro-nutrient solution with amino acids as a once weekly foliar as they progress. Aside from that I will only be adding molasses and Aloe occasionally along with Biosys for micro herd. With the potting up regime and a good soil mix especially final pot up I am hoping to keep the NPK additions from bottles to an absolute minimum or at least that is the idea Right thats all the science mumbojumbo out of the way now on with the most intense initial update of a diary I will likely ever do.... Picture diary from seedling to 2 weeks before flipping, I'll start with the obligatory soak shot and things will develop in rapid fire style since the veg period is critical if rather uneventful. I will highlight as I go any training etc but for the most part I top and create 6 head bushes in a manifold type style. I have in fact intended to do that very thing with these 2 girls. So for your viewing pleasure (soundtrack not supplied) the HSO Sheep DOG trials are underway! Space and time issues combined with my need to identify some strains for my daughter means I could only run 1 of each but that should not detract from the fun . As you can see we are off to a great start with both up and loving life inside 5 days! moving on to the first pot up which took place at day 17... EWE-2 is off to a flier and I thought Black DOG would be the faster developing but, that is not the case straight out of the shell. As you can see BD is a little behind her neighbour but there is always time for that to change... Now on to the following week... So, first topping for both and they are very similar in structure thus far and they are loving the Aloe feed too EWE-2 (above) is a real beauty and BD is too to be fair... Its all a bit sever at first but I need the extra veg time and I want them to have some nice airy space to develop. Now on to the next week..... Black DOG loved the topping and is really having some spurt... I could not be happier with how well they have taken to their training ... next week up... Well I was a little early with this pic update but I thought what the hell Well, That brings us up to nearly the end of November and I will be updating from here to current day this coming week. The flip is planned for just around Xmas so I'll do 1 more BIG update before the holidays then back after New Year for hopefully a very frosty finish. To anyone that made it this far and is still awake I suggest a big fat one cos that's what I'm going to do now Peace All Breezus
