Hello folks, I'm Herb. Finally got my arse into gear and I'm growing my own for once. Having a shot anyway! I am usually quite shit at keeping records and organised and such but I've always been sure I want to document the journey, so I am starting this thread now while I am on the computer and can be arsed. I just ordered twelve Real Gorilla Seeds, and some jiffy pellets. The strains I went for were Green Gold and Mighty Gold, half and half. Feminised. I would love to keep it old school and sex the plants and save money and learn more about farming with natural seeds, but I will be working away most of the summer, and want to be able to relax and just leave em to it. I went for RGS because they were a bit cheaper than what I was going to go for, and after reading a few rave reviews I started noticing more tales of their greatness popping up - especially the Mighty Gold. I have several plots on various mountainsides - all with uninterrupted sky and perfect S or SE views. There's absolutely no one about and almost no reason to go to them, but if you did there's no cover for a big plot. Most grows (it seems) is find a spot with good sun that's totally enclosed/protected, and then cram as many plants as possible in there. But my environment, I reckon, is better suited to sparse planting, out in the open for the world to see, but in camouflage. Like a wolf in sheeps clothing! Har har.... I'm talking about tens of square miles of forestry and field, and roughly fuck all people for each of those square miles. I have walked for hundreds of hours around this area, and see another person perhaps once every ten or twelve. Almost always on proper footpaths, that is. Anyway, the essence of my theory is that 6-8 plants dotted in very small groups across this area is very unlikely to be discovered, when you consider how close you'd need to get to smell or spot a lone ganja plant among the other foliage. They're a pain in the arse to get to, all on slopes, with lots of obstacles, all to get absolutely nowhere. I just realised I've actually written a fair bit, my plan was just to put it down to ensure I continued it, not actually write about this. It's 10:40am and I still haven't slept so I'm going to do that now. I will be back soon and give a proper log! Look forward to me crying to y'all for help when it all goes tits up :haha:
What are people doing with this? I have just started growing with soil, using biobizz all mix. I flowered some Black Jack autos and I now have some Whiteberry in veg, after 8 weeks from showing there is one plant at 90cm tall, one at 80cm and two smaller ones, at about 50cm and 60cm. This morning the large plant had dried out completely, was looking a little droopy, and she drank 3lts of water with 1ml per litre of biogrow. The other plants were sitting in pots still a little heavy with water and looked healthy so I will water them another day..... I am not worried about the 4 Whiteberry being different sizes, when I switch the lighting cycle in a week or so I can bend the taller plant and I have the two smaller raised up anyway, so I can get a canopy going. My question is, with organic growing, do you need to let the pot dry out completely before watering again? I understand the organic nutes are not absorbed by the plant right after watering but only when the pot has dried out a bit. How dry does the pot have to be before you should water the plant... ....I am thinking just letting each plant individually dry out until it looks thirsty then giving it water and nutes. I am used to growing in canna, where it is wet all the time, but that seemed to be contributing to some kind of fungus in my tent, which eventually gave the plants stem rot. With growing in soil the problem is manageable, I think because the fungus cannot survive a long enough dry cycle....
