Dinafem OG Kush

94 posts in this topic

Hi all 
Right, I wasn't going to do do a diary on my current grow as I am really busy with a lot of things and have an outdoor diary up and running. But @Dinafem-Mark asked me if I was going to document my OG Kush so I've decided to do this for him as he does so much for us all :)

 

Originally the grow was going to be solely Ugorg Killer Skunk with the hope of having 6 females from a pack of 10 that would fit nicely under my new LED but I had germination issues and only ended up with 5 plants make it to seedlings. So in the hope of three of these being female and taking a  a Blues clone for back up I decided to germ two freebies from earlier purchases of Dinafem beans from another vendor. One Afghani Kush x Black Domina fem from World of seeds and one Dinafem OG Kush. I didn't decide this until the KS seedlings were nearly two weeks old so these were vegged for two weeks longer than the OG and Affy by the time they hit the surface. 

 

I had 3 definate females and a possible female that was very late showing it's true sex but I decided to pot it into it's final 11L with the rest of them instead of waiting, because the KS were at about 8 weeks veg already and the other two at 6. I had kept a male KS in a 3.5L for some F2's so I decided to pull this male and put the Blues back up clone straight into the same pot to fill the space. So this Blues only had 2 weeks veg in the 11L before going into flower with the KS at 10 weeks and the OG and Affy at 8 weeks. First thing I thought about was watering probs with this not having been potted up through a 3.5L like the rest of them but I thought at least it will fill the space and I'll just have to be careful with the watering. So I have been feeding it every 6 days instead of every 3 like the rest of them and little bits in between. It is looking quite good considering, but the flowers aren't as advanced as the others.

 

Anyway, that's the history out of the way and this diary will be about the OG Kush from 3 weeks flower. If anyone would like to watch the progress of the others I will be posting pics to my gallery :)

 

OG Kush

 

She poked her head out on 9th Feb and grew for about 10 days in a 1L pot of Levington's original with a touch of seaweed extract liquid added.
Then potted up to a 3.5L square pot for a couple of weeks, grown to the 4th node and topped to the 3rd. I didn't start LST at this stage as she was a little bit slow to recover enough for the side branches to be long enough to tie down. 

 

This will be the only pic in the diary of the whole bunch because I forgot to crop the OG out which is the back middle one @ 19 days old.

When she was potted up to her final she bounced into action and now the LST could begin to spread her out and even up her canopy.

Here she is in her final at 30 days old. The damaged leaf is one of the fresh tips that was damaged with the scissors when I topped her.

And here at 43 days old with nice strong branches and healthy leaves :)

The veg pics stop from here until the present, at just over 3 weeks into flower. I do have some pics on my mobile but they are a bit crappy.

 

Additives have been the odd 1/2 ml of seaweed and Bio silicon. I didn't feed any CalMag until I saw a defficiency and then gave her 1ml/L Humbolt equilibrium and then 1/2ml every feed from then on. Also 1/2ml Rootstim every feed until 3 weeks in and the stretch has stopped. 

Feed has been the odd 1/2ml of Fishmix through veg and early flower onset. PM bloom was started sometime in stretch at 1/2ml/L and has been upped to 2ml as of now. I have kept notes but they're up there in the grow area and I can't go up til lights on so this is a rough guide from memory.
I have pruned most of the lower suckers at 21 days, leaving some that look to be receiving enough light to be of anything useful. This should really have been done at 2 weeks to get more energy to the tops sooner but I have been really busy with work and other stuff.

 

Temps have been around 72 lights off, 81 lights on, root temps around 73-78 and rh between 30 and 50, coming down gradually. She seems to be loving the LED which is a Vipar spectra 900, meant to be the equivalent of a 1000w sodium and draws 418w both switches on. I started her out vegging under a 150w cfl in the veg cab for a couple of weeks before the main tent under the LED with just the veg switch. But that didn't last very long at all before switching onto full power just to make sure :) I've been a bit apprehensive with the LED and was thinking of firing the 600 sodium back up for flowering but then I'll never know how well they do under LED if I don't try.
The more she flowers the more I'm liking it so if this grow works out well then it's the way forward for me. No more worrying about leaving the house with hot bulbs burning away, and reduced leccy costs :)

 

The branches are nice and strong so look like they'll carry some weight so I never put any stakes down the sides of the pots like I have the other plants but I think I will do that one night this week just to spread the colas out and allow more light to penetrate ;) Tempted to do some more defoliation after seeing @MeanGreenScouseMachine's results but I think I'll leave it this time around and see what results I get before pushing my luck lol

 

So here's the results of her progress so far at 24 days flower which were taken last night. The next feed will be upped to 2.5ml bloom

Thanks lads, she's loving her environment with the LEDs. So much more forgiving :) I'm upping the bloom by 1/2 ml every second feed (6days).

Looking just so happy in there, you should do fine with the Vipar just keep an eye out for bleaching the tops of the plants. Should be plain sailing.

Thank you so much for getting another Dinafem grow diary going and I think you will like our og kush. She is a strain we have worked on for many years and now with the white fire cut being used our og is one of the best on the market and will not disappoint. 

 

 

Good call on not doing the serious deflation with this harvest. Let's see how she grows under semi natural conditions then maybe next grow try the @MeanGreenScouseMachinetech on the next plant?

 

So far looking great and again thank you for documenting this grow and thank you for the added picture very much appreciated! 

 

Until the next update :bong:

 

All the best 

 

Mark.

Cheels dude. No worries, I'm on the ball with

this one after stressing them out on my last grow with a new halide bulb too close. I started this off with the led 30" away then dropped it steadily  to 24". Since then I've just let the plants grow up to the light in their own time and now the highest top is 17" away ;)

 

Thanks @Dinafem-Mark

 I'm really looking forward to this baby :) I might take a few more leaves off as she flowers, see how it goes ;)

looking nice brother... yeah they stripped down good, all in all I'm not sure what difference it made for me but I certainly weren't disappointed with the results.. I'll be in and out here to see how you get on...

 

good luck

@Green-trialist

Cheers bro,  it certainly gave you some nice tops ;) I didn't want to try too many new things at once, leds and extreme defoliation. The only reason I partially defoliated this one early on is because I think defoliation saved my arse on the last grow. Was thinking of doing a comparison with my KS but waste of time really from seed because of phenos. Ideally a clone run comparison would be best but even that is a tall order at the moment with all these new strains and free beans floating about. Too much to try, not enough time lol 

All the best

Great first post mate and seems to be loving all that LED light, funnily enough I popped an OG Kush auto into dirt just yesterday and am looking forward hugely to trying her :) 

 

Best of luck with both diaries! :oldtoker:

Morning all,

 

Just a quick update at 28 days flower.

Last feed was 1.5L of 1/2ml/L Humbolt Equilibrium and 2.5ml/L bloom.

Temps are nice and steady within the ideal range, 70 to 80 F

Root temps even better, 73 to 78 :)

RH has risen slightly, between 35 and 56

Since the last update I've staked her colas to try and get more light penetration.

 

So here she is from Wed night at 28 days.

Happy growing and keep it green :)
