assault and battery posted a topic in Sweet Seeds Competition Grow Diaries 2018/19Sweet Seeds® Sweet Tai®, Psicodelicia® & Jack 47® Sweetly Sativa (leaning) Diary Competition 2018/2019 Introduction I chose these three strains (Jack47®, Sweet Tai® and Psicodelicia®) as they are all at least 70% Sativa and It would be nice to have a smoke that boosts creativity rather than renders me disabled on the sofa, I’d like to see how they perform under the Quantum boards which tend to keep node spacing tight and hopefully control any stretch although height/headroom is not necessarily a problem. My intention is to keep a concise diary, monitoring plant health and growth rates and environmental conditions along the way. Many thanks to Sweet Seeds for their generosity and the opportunity to take part in this competition. There’s some stiff competition this year and I hope this will inspire and motivate me to keep a detailed, interesting and up to date diary. Strains: (all info reproduced from seed packs) Sweet Tai® - Fantastic crossbreed between our elite clones of Super Tai and Early Skunk. The resulting hybrid features a very tasty, deeply spiced and exotic flavour that is typical of Asian varieties. The Early skunk genetic side shortens the flowering period, but also allows for denser and more resinous buds, with a more compact structure that turns it into a strain adapted for indoor growing. Produces a very cerebral high. Psicodelicia® - This strain is a cross between a clone form the United States and a plant from Nepal whose spices aromas bring to mind places where coffee is toasted. A mostly Sativa plant with very short flowering period, producing generous buds all full of resin The effect is typical of a mostly Sativa hybrid: energetic, clean and exciting. An ideal strain for artistic and creative activities. Jack 47® - This super hybrid is the result of the cross between wo of the most potent genetics of all time, Jack Herer X AK47. Jack47®(SWS08) is a very productive plant with strong effect that grows with an extraordinary vigour. This allows for big buds with copious amounts of resin. The tastes and aroma of this variety are sweet and fresh, complemented with a lemony hint and tones of incense. As a result of its genetic freshness and hybrid vigour, this plant adapts very well to every kind of growing technique. Besides that, it allows for the production of strong and healthy clones that show roots in only 7 days.

Tape measure MS Excel Two seeds of each strain were put into Jacks magic soil in 0.1L pots, the soil was pre-wetted with maxicrop Seaweed extract made up at 1.1ml/L This solution is now in a spray bottle so I can keep the pots moist without flooding them out and washing my seed away to the bottom of the pot. The pots have been positioned under the 65W Quantum board where temperature is a steady 24.1 C with a piece of paper over the tops of the pots to stop the light stunning them when they initially appear (at which point I'll move the light higher) The plant labels are sticky on one side so that any pests can be detected and dealt with early if necessary. The date on each label refers to the date the seeds went into soil but will be updated with the dates they break ground in due course. Growth rates, Environmental conditions and observations will be tracked and monitored throughout the grow, using Microsoft Excel. If anyone's made it this far through my long post, Well done! and thank you I'm a little intimidated by the quality of contestants in this competition but I'll be happy to finish with some great buds and a smile on my face. Good Luck to ALL
Hi all, im new to the forum and excited to be here, a friend @maverick40band I are looking to start up a personal grow and are looking for some good advice/ information, we are fed up with unreliable, poor quality or overpriced products out there and would like to have a clean tasty reliable source of our own. At the moment we are completely undecided on the best way to set up our tent. Hydroponics or soil grow? Potsizes? Light types? Fan/ extractor sizes? Nutrients? We are looking at a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2.4 tent and would like to grow 8 plants, is this tent adequate for the quantity and if so what equipment is needed to setup the tent to achieve a perfect grow environment? We do have some ideas of our own but would like some fresh ideas from experienced growers to compare notes and to see if we are on the right lines. I won't tell you what we have in mind as i feel we will benefit more from the knowledge and experience of this forum. Any advice on the equipment you would recommend, what and where to buy from, things often not thought about when setting up, recommendations on soil or hydroponics (pros and cons), or just any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated. We are fairly new to this, we have a couple of 1-2 plant grows under our belts, so we are looking for as much knowledge as possible. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to hearing from you all.
