Hasta la Vista, Baby! Sweet Seeds Multistrain Comp Grow

135 posts in this topic

Welcome Amigos! :D

 

As a sort of tradition by now, I'll start by thanking Sweet Seeds and their entire team for hosting another edition of the greatest comp in the weed net! :yep: You guys rock, especially in those "challenging" times!

Now let's get to business... :naughty:  I received a few new strains and still had a few more in my stash box, just waiting for the comp to start.  There will be two batches: one batch containing fast flowering strains (8 week flowering) and the other with regular speed strains (9 week flowering). I'll be growing 2 seeds of each strain.

 

FV Batch (8 weeks)

  • Gorilla Girl FV - I've grown the normal Gorilla Girl version a few times and enjoyed every time.  Some strong and tasty smoke and wonder how the FV will compare.
  • Crystal Candy FV - Same story the Gorilla Girl, done the normal version before...
  • Green Poison - This is the first strain I ever grew during the first comp back in 2009.  I remember it being a good smoke - looking forward to travel back in time.
  • Sweet Cheese FV - One of my favorites from the catalogue.  Never seems to disapoint.

Normal Batch (9 weeks)

  • Sweet Zenzation "Zkittlez" - First time growing this strain.  I've just noticed the name change... are the original packs more valuable now? :upside:
  • Red Hot Cookies - Hoping for some colourful phenos, but my first with her as well
  • Psicodelicia - I think i've mentioned this strain a few times, but keeps returning to my grow room and for good reasons - I just love that strain!
  • Black Jack - Actually, I wanted to get the CBD version for my gf...  sadly, i did a mistake while ordering.... well, the normal Black Jack is still good in my books. Sorry :rolleyes:

Nutrients and Additives

 

  • Biobizz All Mix Compost

 

  • Grow - in use only during flowering

  • Fishmix - mixed into every other feed during flowering
  • Topmax - mixed into every other feed during flowering

The way I  germinate the seeds

 

Always under the watchful eyes of my trusted accomplice. :cat:

 

large.4.jpg

 

 

 

I place some Biobizz All Mix compost into a seedling tray. 

 

large.5.jpg

 

 

 

The compost is evenly spread and slightly compacted, not too much though.

 

large.6.jpg

 

 

 

Water is sprinkled on the top of the tray and then small holes are made about 5mm deep.

Seeds are then selected and placed into holes with the pointy side up! The holes are closed with a pinch of compost.

Never forget to label!

Tray with the lid is then placed onto a heated pad in the system.  I actually left the light off during the first 24hrs.  I also leave the vent holes closed until first seedlings appear of the ground in a few days hopefully. :guitar:

I plan to keep both batches in this system during vegetation and then seperate them when entering flowering.  Possibly flowering the FV batch sooner then the "regular" batch.  I might also only pot up the FV only twice while i will pot up the other batch 3 times.  They will certainly be topped and cuts will also be taken...

 

System used for vegetation

  • Bonanza Box (110x78x160)
  • CXM 320W LED light, courtesy of diyled - dimmed all the way down atm
  • 125mm TD Silent with PK Carbon filter - passiv extraction

 

The FV batch will remain in this system until the end of flowering, while the normal batch will move into another system.

 

System used for flowering of the "normal" batch

  • Darkbox 120 (120x120x200)
  • 400-660w hps lumatek - mostly dual spectrum light bulb
  • 125mm TD Silent with PK Carbon filter - passiv extraction

 

 

All the seeds have been placed into the system just about 2 days ago and hope the first seedlings are going to appear soon.  In the meanwhile, I wish all the contestants some good luck and for all to stay safe out there... :v:

Thanks, buddy!  Haven't been much on this site the past few months and had to catch up with your diary. When are you finally participating in this comp? A few Sweet Seed strains would suit you well. Btw, I also ran some smottie x mango ssh this year.  Flavour was alright, but nothing crazy though.  Killer skunk was great as ususal and still one of my favourites - i hope the KS makes a return to the shop. :)

Thanks, Clumsy! My accomplice has been along the ride for 11 years now...  He doesn't help much... more like an observer.   Sadly, my other cat disapeared this year.  She used to help me trim the lower leaves by munching away.

@AustrianToker. Great stuff man. All the best for the comp. I ran a Green Poison CBD last time. Very, very nice indeed. Something maybe for your GF next time seeing as you like the normal version? Your friend certainly is a cutie?

Yeah, she was a little disapointed about no cbd from sweet seeds, but i did germ a CBD strain (just not from Sweet Seeds, but a freebie).  Thanks about the Green Poison CBD recommendation, it does sound really nice.  I've smoked some ICE Cool CBD, which was really nice as well.

Pictures were taken a day or two ago and seedlings will be transferring the seedlings into small pots (~0.5L)  today.  They will also receive their first dose of rootjuice, once in the new pots. :flex:
