I'm not a master grower. I'm not even at an advanced stage yet. I still consider myself a novice, as I learn with each grow. Posting an online journal where I can interact with other growers, smokers, and gardeners is very beneficial to the learning process, and I even meet a few people who are local this way too!
I currently have a couple plants in the early-to-mid stage of flowering. They are:
1 RESINATOR (comes down next week - undetermined)
1 NORTHERN LIGHTS (started flowering on 17 MAR)
1 AFGHAN KUSH x BLACK DOMINA (started flowering on 27 APR)
2 VIOLATOR KUSH (clones, started flowering on 5 MAY)
I might have some people coming over from my previous thread, and so those folks are aware of my soil and watering schedule. I'm running the complete master Roots Organics 5ML program. They get flushed with clean water once a week.
My soil is a proprietary blend. It consists of Roots Organics 707, Ancient Forest, a potting soil, Kelp Meal, Alfalfa Meal, Oregonsim, Worm Castings, and Rare Earth. The soil is perfect to get through a 2-3 month vegetative cycle with just water. During the first week of flower, I start supplementing with the Roots Organics "uprising" blends (you use the 'Foundation' in combination with the 'Grow' and 'Bloom' blends).
The girls get filtered water through a Small Boy filter with a KDF-85 filter to filter out the chloramines. That crap is gross, anyway.
The flowering tent is a 4 x 4 variety outfitted with a Sun Systems 6" Magnum XXXL and a 600w Hortilux Super HPS bulb. My ballast is a Lumatek. I run my girls in 5-gallon Smart Pots.
I am posting pictures tonight when the girls wake up. I just got a new digital camera and I'm interested to see how well the HD works. Just don't make fun of the RESINATOR girl who gets cut down next week... she's seen better days
