Xmas Auto Rush 2014

21 posts in this topic

Ho ho hoe time to get this grow show on the go.

So my set up has been the same since the drove was born but here's the run down

Drobe

250w HP's

5"extraction fan

Passive intake

Clip on fan for circulation

Now then what have we got in store for this years winter stash? Let's see;

2x Fast Bud (6.5ltr pots)

3x Cream Caramel (11ltr pots)

I have around an oz of Think Different left that I'm trying to spread out until a fast bud is worthy of chopping down, will sacrifice the weaker of the two and then plan to chop the rest around Xmas.

Looking forward to this winters fruits :-)

I will post pics shortly the young ones are 10 days old today.

Hi sonofdavid,

They are all 12 days old today, I plan on chopping the fast buds between 7-8 weeks (15th - 22nd Dec but will let the CC's go longer as that's my favourite smoke and the flavours increase loads in those final weeks, along with the crystal formations. They will be 10 weeks come the 5th of Jan and that's when I'd usually chop them.

I've never grown cream caramel in 11ltr pots before so not sure if they will need longer to see the full benefit of bigger pots? Plus I've only got about 9 litre of medium in the pots anyway so shouldn't be to different.

Nice one bro, hope they finish in time for ya then. I reckon you'll be fine, as long as your environment is favourable. I keep hearing good things about the CC and how it smokes. I'm gonna order some auto seeds today so I reckon I'll give them a try too

Haha yeah too right Sonofdave, at the rate my jar is emptying I'll be chopping the first fast bud as soon as its worthy. Only enough room in the drobe for 4 flowing ladies anyway.

Well the girls are looking happier in their bigger pots and I've started them now on the PM biosilican 1ml per litre.

With regards to Chopper,

Jimmy, if you keep stabbing me, you're going to kill me.

love that film

Cheers godofgreen, that cream caramel is something special, this will be the 4th grow I've done with the CC's. The fast buds are looking really good plants to.
The plants are 3 weeks old tomorrow and the stem is thickening up nice, very little stretching and an even canopy. This is the first time I've used a 20/4 lighting cycle and I think this has prevented the plants stretching.
Here are some photos when they were 15/16 days old;

Will add new photos tomorrow,

Ok so the drobes looking nice and bushy. Girls are now 23-25 days old and I've raised the light a little as one of the cream caramels at the back of the drobe has started to stretch a good 60-70mm above the rest.

Anyway here's a few updated pics for your viewing. Not the best pics will turn the light off next update.

This was taken before the light and fan was raised. Two fast buds at the front, 3 cream caramels at the rear.

Well the girls have now been in the drobe 32 days and boy are they making themselves at home in there.

Old stretchy(CC) has a small amount of heat damage at the top of tge main cola but hopefully wont effect it too much as I caught it early, fingers crossed.

I fitted my new carbon filter today and its almost twice the size of my old one, luckily managed to squeeze it in there. Should of checked dimensions before ordering but never mind alls gravy :oldtoker: look at the difference in size below.

new mahoosive carbon filter

Here are some more updated photos.
