So I says to myself, "Bob, (my name really isn't Bob) Bob... everybody's doing it. It really can't be all THAT hard... Why not just have a whack at it!"
So here it is.
My grow journal.
First one ever.
Ariel is a cheese clone I received in trade for a phish ticket. The ticket was for a show last summer (Great Woods) and the clone was delivered at another show (also phish) at the Centrum last December.
She was delivered to me inside the show, swaddled in a hard-shell eyeglass case. Sorry, no baby pictures. She was firmly rooted into a moist rapid rooter plug, about six inches above the plug and three nodes tall. Big leafs trimmed and healthy.
I brought her home to Boston and wasn't sure what to do with her. So I stuck her in a coffee mug and put her on a sunny windowsill for about two weeks, watering when the plug went dry.
Finally got my act together, stuffed her in my own spin-off of Ed's coco combo. It's about 80% coco coir, 15% perlite 5% worm castings. A little Epsoma Garden Lime mixed in for Ca. Put the whole thing in a 1 liter Air-Pot for the duration.
Stuck it in my ghetto CPU/server box from last spring. Basically a big tower CPU case. Lined in a cheap army/navy mylar emergency blanket. Lit with 3-26 watt CFl's. Ventilation by 4" target brand desktop fan.
She took off like out of a cannon, but showed Mg def. pretty quick. Dosed her heavy with epsom salts and her explosiveness redoubled. LST'ed/pruned her into a fairly flat canopy @ a height of about 6" above top of coco and threw her into flower.
That was about twenty days ago. It took her 4-5 days to show sex and she started to flower with vigor to match her veg state.
That's about where we're at now. Here's the pictures. Tell me what you think.
