Green Fingers' Dutch Passion adventure!!

so after growing DP 'the ultimate' and having great results yield wise and more importantly smoke wise i decided to do a new diary in the DP sub forum growing DP only strains in multi strain grows.

i have 22 'ultimate's' finishing in 2 weeks approx so i ordered 10 beans to do this new diary with. I am planning on making this a rolling diary and doing at least 1 new strain or even 2 each run but i will always have space for 'ultimate' in my groom.

my set up is

3x 600w lumii HPS lights

1x10 inch rvk A1 and 10 inch rhino pro pulling out

2x 4 inch rvk pulling in

4x 12 inch oscillating fans in each corner

de-humidifier on stand-by

my groom is 2.5mx3mx1.7m tall lined with b+w sheeting, walls made from stud and internal doors for insulation with all above equipment inside :)

I am planning to do 18 plants in 6.5 pots in plant magic dirt, and oldtimers grow and bloom, granules and bio silicone

i was using biobizz range with b&q mp compost and the latest gnat infestation has pissed me off so much and i have read on here people rate PM soil higher than BB so only makes sense to use PM nutes with soil

So the line up for run 1 and maybe 2 will be

5x DP 'the edge'

1st Prize Outdoor, Spannabis Champions Cup 2015

If you’re a fan of strong old-school Skunk varieties with bumper harvests then this is a perfect choice. The Edge is a Sativa dominant (75% Sativa, 25% Indica) variety that delivers heavy harvests of top quality cannabis with a strong Shiva aroma which will remind you of the good old days. THC levels of 17% are typical, this is a powerful variety. The Edge has a Skunk-appearance, but with slightly more stretch.

The longer inter-nodal distance and multi-branching allows for extra large harvests. This variety prefers extra nutrients during vegetative growth and requires 8-9 weeks for flowering indoors, typically reaching up to 1m tall and yielding up to 500g/m². The Edge will also perform Outdoors in mild climates and will finish as early as mid/late September.

The Edge delivers a powerful and uplifting high which transitions into a strong stone. This is a robust variety which performs well even for less experienced growers and will tolerate conditions which are not always ideal. Whichever way you grow The Edge you should get a heavy crop of quality pot.

5x DP 'power plant'

As soon as it was released in 1997 Power Plant became an instant success, a heavy yielding and highly stable classic. Power Plant is a mostly-Sativa variety from South Africa and the original version is only available from Dutch Passion. It is a heavy yielder for indoor, greenhouse and outdoor gardens (does well in Mediterranean climates) with bumper yields of 500-600 grams/m2 and is popular with recreational and medical users. Power Plant has been a key part of our collection and has been regarded as a Dutch Passion legend alongside, and on a par with, White Widow. It was only ever inbred by us, never hybridised, and remains a pure and stable strain with a great and well deserved reputation. When it was first released every coffeeshop wanted Power Plant on their menu and it is still found in Dutch coffeeshops today.


Power Plant is rich in THC and delivers a formidable strong „up‟ high with a fresh flavour, smooth/soft smoke and sweet after-taste. The plants reach 1-1.5m tall and the buds are often 30+cm long, with small leaves in them. Outdoors the flowering starts late but the plants ripen quickly and are usually ready around the 2nd week of October. Indoors, the flowering starts one week after reducing the light cycle to 12 hours and a total of 8 weeks is typical.

Because this is a purebred, unhybridised strain it is very uniform, consistent and predictable. Power Plant is one of those uncomplicated original classic strains that everyone should try. Stable, highly potent and with great harvests.

also ill be running 8 DP 'ultimate' from clones that i already have all seeds were put into a mug of room temp water last night and i can already see some of the power plant beginning to open and show that first sign of a white tap root i cannot tell with the edge as the seeds are tiny (as the ultimate seeds were) but im sure they will pop they are all sat at the bottom in the boiler cupboard in the dark and by tomorrow the will be in small pot under the CFL with her clone cousins :)

Cheers @@FTP I hope so, tbh I'm most excited about the edge, I love an old school skunk strain and even though it advertises 17% THC a little birdy told me recent lab tests show 21%+ so should be a tea knock out strain for night time lol

ATB and thanks for looking in

@@greenfingers1987 it looks like a good one bro!

But I'm confused, that looks like perlite, or vermiculite in your pots? Is PM "soil" mostly perlite?

Peace

@@Bubs Smoosh I just pit a little perlite in the top of my b&q soil as its all I had for the clones to stop any gnats landing on the top of my soil, ill treat with gnat off before pot up :), ill be potting up into PM dirt which has fycotel (sure I ain't spelled that right lol) which is another aerating and water retaining substrate without the carcinogenic properties of perlite, thanks for looking in grab a pew and get rolling

@@FTP ot ain't sad, I was growing I a wardrobe doing 3 plants in a micro scrog and moved for a better space, think I will hopefully get round to some of the CBD crew stuff in dying to try some euphoria and some orange hill special, ill be dodging some of the longer flowerers like outlaw as I use my groom as drying room so all need to be done 8-9 weeks if poss :), might run an 18 plant outlaw grow in the future though looks to have some real potential but 10-14 weeks is a long time bet its worth the wait though

@@greenfingers1987 Sounds good to me bro. I don't think it's carcinogenic unless you are breathing the dust off the top of your pots / bag... Even then, I doubt it's carcinogenic... Probably just cuts the shit out of your lungs...

I dunno though - happy to read a link if you have a good source for that :)

You could use diatomaceous earth if you are having a problem with fungus gnats. That is like little bits of glass and chops them up - I don't think perlite will do that much against fungus gnats, other than make them easier to kill on the white perlite vs. the brown soil...

I'm along for the ride - looking forward to the action :)

I'm thinking about running Mango Haze (CBD Crew) indoors over the winter. It'll depend on a few things, but it's getting mighty tempting.

Its just to stop flying gnats landing on soil to lay eggs that's all bud as the larvae burrow down into soil, thanks for the tip though bud ill try to find a link on perlite as you say it is the dust but pm stuff sounds good and uk made, I know what you mean about some of the cbd strains quite like the look of cbd skunkhaze as it has a 1:1 thc/cbd ratio and is meant to be v relaxing without the intense thc stone and paranoia etc...

Glad your on board bud

@@greenfingers1987 the CBD mango haze sounds awesome!

Have you tried topping the soil with a sand layer? Read somewhere about it so it's not bullet proof but just a thought.

My current grow is northern lights X haze #5 .. 11/14 week flower is killing me! Switching to super skunk after for a quicker rotation.

Did you core two 10" holes for the extraction then?
