The Devil's Arse Welcomes Dinafem Critical+2.0

Twoscoops indoor diary

 

Hola and welcome all to my first Dinafem indoor diary. A big thanks to all involved in putting this competition together and I wish everyone the best of luck :lucky:.

 

Backstory:

I took a 24 cell tray of Critical +2.0 clones 6 weeks previous using Canna coco pro medium, Growers Ark First Feed (2.5ml / L) and Root tonic (5ml / L) and then placed them in my Secret Jardin Dp90 propagation tent under a 96watt 4 x 2ft tube T5 Lightwave fluorescent light on a 18 / 6 light schedule.

Here is a photo of the medium / nutrients I used for propagation:

Once the clones had roots I selected the best 9 and potted them up using Canna coco pro medium into 10cm square pots.

I sat them inside my Vitopod heated propagator set at 24c, still under my T5 light and feed daily with Growers Ark first feed (5ml / L) and Root Tonic (5ml / L).

Here is a photo:

So that's the backstory of taking my clones, selecting the best nine and potting up and cleaning / getting ready 'The Devil's Arse' grow tent ....

I like to rinse the Canna Aqua pebbles off under the tap to get rid of the dust / debris :

After the pebbles are nice and clean its back into the tent to start re-potting the plants.

Back in the tent the 11 Litre plastic punch pots were filled with 3 inch of Canna Aqua pebbles at the bottom for better drainage.

Next I filled the 11litre pots up with Gold label 60/40 mix growing medium. when potting up I always like to sprinkle a little TNC Mycorr Max into the pre made hole before inserting the young plant, see photos below:

I purchased a new 600 watt metal halide bulb to get them going and its just in a standard euro reflector.

Now time for a feed:

 

I like to hand feed for the first week, so I gave them the following feed / strength :

Growers Ark coco Grow 3ml / L

Growers Ark Root Tonic 5ml / L

Growers Ark Trace Elements 2ml / L

 

After mixing this in my tub, the E.C was showing 1.2 -1.4 and PH reading was 6.0 :yahoo:.

 

I gave each plant 300 ml of this and here is a photo of the girls under the metal halide bulb:

Hello and thanks for popping in :) , grab yourself a brandy or three squire.

 

I plan to veg them a good three weeks at least maybe four if they need it with this cold weather we have been experiencing. 

At the moment the plants are under a 600watt metal halide bulb on 18 / 6 light schedule.

As they get bigger I will nudge the pots outwards so eventually the plants will fill the floor space and by that time I will be increasing the light to two x 600watt metal halides :yep:.

So when the areas covered and they look healthy and happy, I will then flip them to 12 / 12 bloom phase.

 

I might start pinching a few tops out soon if they pick up abit, I want them as big sideways as they are tall :guitar:

Once I get the area covered I might put my super duper homemade 'hot pink' scrog net over them, it's a sight to behold lol ..

 

I will update any growth / changes on here as much as I can, so I can get some good advice along the way too.

 

Thanks ...

Hehe lol ,

 

Aye the tent does look clean, and I don't want to be spilling no Growers ark root tonic in there, that stuffs like concentrated raw sewage :soap:lol .

I did notice some little fly thing buzzing around the other day so I hung some yellow sticky traps to see if they catch any 'space invaders'.

 

cheers ..

 

scoops :)
