Ive got 6 different strains that Im planning on cycling for now. Im just going to cut a few clones before I put it into the flower box so I can preserve the strain. I have Grape Ape that is in this box now. This seed Im not sure if its male or female yet, but all the others I got are feminized seeds. The other seeds are Spicy White Devil from Samsara seeds, Tangerine Dream from Barney's Farm, Critical Kush from Barney's Farm, Vanilla Kush from Barney's Farm, and Super Lemon Haze from Green House Seeds. Im planning on spacing them out about 2-3 weeks.
This will be a 100% coco grow. I will be using all General Hydroponics Nutrients and following the FloraNova Expert Drain to Waste feeding schedule. I used that schedule for bloom on my current grow and am more than happy with the current results so Im going to stick to it. For lighting in this box I chose CFL's and so far they are working more than fine. I am planning on cropping the plants to be shorter because I do have height restrictions in my flower box too. The pots Im using are 8 inches and Im not planing on transplanting into anything larger yet. The way I want these to grow is more like a bush or shrub. I planted the grape ape a little to one side of the pot. When it got tall enough I bent it all the way over across the top of surface. as it grew back towards the light I bent it again. As soon as it gets to the end of the pot Im going to top her and then train the 2 off shoots to wrap around the the contour of the pot in a circle. Then the stem of the plant will also be now producing additional tops as well and that will fill out the middle.......In my head that sounds like its going to work haha. But I guess we will see!
So the Grape Ape is starting week 4 of veg right now. I started it from seed so its been about 1 month since seed. There is also a autoflower in with it. It was a free seed so I just decided to throw it in. That has been going for 5 days total since germination.
Sorry this was so long! I update often, so follow along. I am going to start a thread on the flower room too once I get the plants in cycle and Ill link it over too.
