Gorilla Girl and Crystal Candy, Bondage style in Jacuzzis

Hows it going everyone? 

 

Firstly a massive thanks to Sweet seeds and everyone here that makes the like of this possible. What an unbelievable competition!! You'd be mad not to throw your hat in!!

 

I think choosing the strains was for me the hardest decision I've had to make since naming the kids lol . Being a professional bun chef the strains and the descriptions had me salivating!! I love a sweet taste in my vape. After hours of deliberating with the wife and the shopping cart changed many times over we decide to go with the following photoperiod strains.

I couldn't wait to get them going!!

 

They will be grown in my tent in the loft and I will be training them the same as my last grow. I tried mainlining my plants to 8 mains and for a first attempt I was really pleased. So these girls will be getting the same torturing!!

 

Equipment And Nutes

120x60x160 Tent

2x19l OxyPots with pumps and heaters

600watt HPS

Ive always wanted to try a girl scout cookie strain so I went with two Gorilla Girls first. I honestly don't know why i didn't pick two different ones. I sort of got caught up in the moment lol So I plopped them into a glass of water for 24hrs

24hrs later i tapped them and they both sank

I then placed the seeds into rootit cubes that i soaked in ph'd water. Then the cubes are placed in a prop and wrapped in a black t-shirt, sat on top of my veg cab to keep them warm.

A couple of days later and Hola Amigos

Two very healthy seedlings soon emerged. I transplanted them both into net pots. Then sat them into some solid pots to block out the light and catch run off. I top fed them with rootit first feed at 3ml/ltr

I thought they were looking so nice i decided to try and move them closer to the lights.:g: Not a good idea. I fried one of them and just about got away with minimal damage to the other :wallbash:

I took it as a sign from the Canna Gods (should of had 2 strains) and immediately placed a seed in a rootit cube. No soak this time. And up she popped to save the day. Mrs Crystal Candy ladies and gents

The Gorilla Girl soon got going again and she was crying out for the bubblers but i had to wait till my last run was chopped.

 

large.IMG_0759.jpglarge.IMG_0630.jpg

 

She went into the bubblers with an ec of 0.6 from a background of practically 0. Ph set to 5.8. Water temps 19 degrees

 

large.IMG_0777.jpglarge.IMG_0778.jpglarge.IMG_0871.jpg

 

I grew her up to 5 nodes and began the torture training. Firstly the operation! All equipment cleaned well!!

 

large.IMG_0872.jpg

 

large.IMG_0874.jpglarge.IMG_0875.jpg

 

Topped at the third node

 

large.IMG_0879.jpg

 

Then everything below the 3rd node cleaned leaving only 2 fan leaves

 

I want this manifold to be as flat as i can get it whilst these 2 nodes grow out so i tie them down as they grow out to 4 nodes. Im limited for height and this worked out last time with a bit of planning and a tape measure.

 

large.IMG_0888.jpg

 

Well thats the big girl up to date.

 

Mrs Candy has come along nicely in the wee veg cab an i just transplanted her into the bubblers. Im glad they are a couple of weeks apart as thats how my last grow went and harvesting was easier also.

 

large.IMG_0885.jpglarge.IMG_0884.jpglarge.IMG_0890.jpg

 

She's looking a bit sad but i bet she'll have perked up after a day or two in the jacuzzis!

 

large.IMG_0892.jpg

 

Thats me all up to date and finally managed to get a few hours to myself to get this diary up and running. 

 

Im still very much a noob and this is my 3rd grow in the bubblers, 2nd time mainlining so please feel free to help me out along the way. 

 

Thanks for looking :chef:

Nice start and I'm doing the same strains at the minute :)

 

Does that size tent not get too hot with a 600watt bulb?

@Exile420 nice one man. I’ll nip in and have a look at yours. No problems with it being too hot. I’m trying to keep the temps up with a heater fan. I’m in the loft lol and it’s pretty mild outside so if the temps drop I’m in for some fun. The fish tank heaters help keep the roots happy. Just the airflow temps I try to keep in order.

Thanks for the opportunity. I hope I can do them justice. I’ve a real good feeling about the gorilla girl mainlined. She’s responded really well to the heavy trim session. Already grown out another node each side. :yep:

Thanks very much fellas. Well happy to be here. Only my second attempt with the training so hopefully all will go well.

 

Another week has went by and the two ladies are coming along lovely

I have started training on the Crystal Candy. She got her first hair cut tonight.

 

large.IMG_1039.jpg

 

She has responded really well to the bubblers and is laying down some good roots

 

large.IMG_1043.jpglarge.IMG_1042.jpg

 

She got topped at the third node and stripped the undergrowth leaving only the fans

 

large.IMG_1045.jpglarge.IMG_1047.jpglarge.IMG_1048.jpg

 

She is a very squat plant with short internodal spacing.

 

The Gorilla Girl has been bombing along. Responded really well to the training. She has larger spacing between the nodes. She is almost ready for her last topping and then i shall create my 8 mains. The only trim she got this evening was the two lower fan leaves

Both being fed Ec 0.6 Ph set to 5.8 allowing to drift up.

@The PadawanA nice bit of root porn there dude and that topping on the Crystal Candy is brutal, is that so you can make a manifold in the trunk? 

 

This is will be an interesting diary to follow so good luck dude.

@jadenugs cheers buddy. 

 

@Smokebelch it is indeed the start of the manifold. It’s a barbaric trim session at first but I love the end structure to the plant.
