The Sweetest Thing, The 5th Sweetseeds Competion Grow 2018/19

61 posts in this topic

Right then lads and lasses, this is my effort for the 5th Sweetseeds competition grow, I can remember doing the first three I think but I missed the last one, so hopefully this diary will go some way to making up for that.

 

I will be growing 6 plants from the 12 seeds kindly gifted by Tommy and his friends due to space or lack of it in my 0.8 m2 veg room, but they will be heavily LST`d, this has paid huge dividends in the past and something I should really do a lot more. The seeds are, SAD, a rock solid selection, Black Jack, which I have only grown once and didn`t do it justice but from what I saw others produce it should be a belter, and out of pure curiosity I`ve also chosen Gorilla Girl (GSC x Gorilla Glue) as I`ve not grown either out yet.

 

So let the games begin!

 

I`ve decided to try out a new compost too for a change, its called Vitax and looks divine in the bag, no lumps of wood or other crap like most composts these days, and dare I say it feels better than Erin! Here`s a few of shots

I have popped the seeds into the compost directly, my preferred method. I watered them in with some Maxicrop seaweed plant growth stimulant which has always given great roots, large.maxicrop.jpgI

 

also have some mycorrhizal inoculant to add at potting up time.

and finally a shot of chosen seeds and pots ready to go

They are now sat in a propagator until they pop, and then they will be transferred to the veg room under a T5 for the first week or so, maybe less depending on how much light they want.

 

The tools for the grow will be;

 

Veg room has T5/250hps/400hps as they develop, a SMS hybrid extraction fan controller with temp/light probes, under pot horticultural under pot heat mat with temp probe and a circulating fan on a 5 step variac controller so it`s not aggressively hitting the plants.

 

In Flower they will be in a 1.2x1.2x2m tent with another SMS hybrid fan controller for the extraction, 2 x 315cmh lights and a couple of horti heat mats to keep roots toasty, and circulating fan.

 

Right, I think that`s everything for now, so thanks again to Sweetseeds for doing this fun comp again, and the free seeds :)

Tidy start mate. This comp's gonna be a good one, i can feel it :yep:

 

I fancied trying the SAD, with a view of putting it outside, but went with the mandarin auto instead. Got it in my head someone done well with it outside near me? I hope so lol

 

Will be nice comparing your black jack grown under CMH, to my black jack under HPS, cause everything else is similar (barring any disasters). Compo, 1.2m space under sms etc :yes:

 

Anyway, all the best with this mate. I look forward to wathing it all develop.

 

Nice one :guitar:

I have fungus gnats this current grow so thought it might be the compost so thought I would try this, it`s what some of the local nurseries use so hopefully it should be quite good.

I was pressured lol  Yeah, I`m impressed with the lack of crap in it and it`s nice and fluffy so lets see if it`s a replacement for the future. :)
