SweetSeeds 3rd Generation
Posted 15 February 2012 - 03:19 PM
Welcome to the second diary of billbud, Captian billbud of the Trichship, UK FourTwenty.
As you can probably tell this one is going to be a little bit different, we will have weekly updates and midweek replies to any comments or questions, hopefully it'll keep the diary more organized and it wont run for pages and pages, fingers crossed anyway.
Flower Room is a DS90 running a duel spec 400w bulb in a 80cm parabolic
Extracting this is a 6" temp/speed controlled In line VK Centrifugal Fan. Fan speed is set to 50% and the temp probe to 28C
Intake is a 4" RVK that pulls from my veg cab with a 6"passive for good luck, (I've still got to much neg pressure).
This all could evolve as the weeks go by as I'm currently looking for ways to best use my space. Thread Here.
Medium will be the same as last time, Plagron Batmix with added Plagron Roots at pot up (just one pot up)
Feed will be OT1's Organic Bloom at no more than 3mlpl and a little veg boost early on, I'm hoping the batmix will carry them through the best part of the grow
Sweet Skunk auto
Mohan Ram auto
Green Poison auto
I've gone for my usual method of germ, straight into batmix pre wetted with Plagron roots at 10mlpl. The beans have had no soaking at all and were kept in a cool, dark and dry place. I'm using 4" pots to start them off and will go to 6litre pots when they are 10 maybe 14 days from germ. Heres a photo strip of my method
Pre wetted Batmix watered in with 10mlpl Plagron Roots
Heres the 'tools' I use
Poke a hole and pop in a bean
and when you have done that nine times you get something that looks like this
Depending on when they pop up, and when my current grow finishes will determine if they'll go straight under the 400w or my little 250w red cfl. My guess is they'll get the cfl for a week then onwards.
