2nd Closet Grow -- Super Haze [DWC -> Rumple Buckets]
Posted 01 October 2008 - 07:19 AM
Growing the 5 feminized Super Haze... saving the freebies for next round.
One will be kept in veg for cloning purposes, and the other four will start flowering withing the next week. Vegging too much longer could make this closet a forest down the road.
For those that didnt follow the first grow [here] it turned out to be male... hence the frustrated emphasis on female genetics this time.
pH - 5.9
temp - 83F
humidity - 45%
till next time....

PunkNDrublic -3 x 100w daylight CFL's; 1 x 120w daylight; for only 5 plants... it's not much light honestly. hoping the switch soon to the flowering stage (400w HPS, not a mac) will give things a kick. kudos on noting the curling... going to try to fix the temp prob soon. if i can keep it in the low 80's in happy...
Three weeks since germination... insane growth with some perking much more vigirously than others
more to come soon... plan to to be moving four of the ladies to rumple buckets before the weekend starts.

nice grow man, those rumple buckets are the shit. so easy to make and use, and outstanding results your going to have some big ole girls here in a couple of weeks, what nutes you using?
BC Nutes.... Got the Technaflora $19 Sampler Kit. Only comes with so much though, so I'm ordering more tomorrow (by the gallons this time)
Boost + Grow for veg
Boost + Bloom for flower
thinking about using some of the awesome blossoms, or thrive alive that came with it as well.... but haven't seen any real reason for them just yet

Noticing signs of over-nutes i believe.... pics coming as soon as USB 1.0 hurries the hell up, community response would be greatly appreciated.

before commenting.... when i transferred the plants to the rumple buckets i ran out of distilled water (just didnt have 20 gallons on me...) so i had to use 1/2 distilled... 1/2 tap water on JUST TWO of the rumple buckets (the other two are 100% distilled water + nutes.) waited a few hours... added nutes, then adjusted the ph of the distilled/tap buckets to 5.9
ppm of all buckets are roughly 800 (+/- 50)
leaves affected are the lowest nodes
tap water ppm was taken into account when adding nutes
ALSO... in the 5L veg container, some roots got entangled, and knots had to be maliciously worked out. 5% damage to the PHYSICAL roots max (it wasn't tangled much at all, just two "knots" i had to work out), not sure how much this affects the overall plants health though.
im pleading here

the blue & clear tubes hanging supply oxygen to the roots via air stones. 1 dedicated stone & air pump per bucket at the moment.

As far as germination is concerned: Wait for the taproot to appear, then plant in 2in. rockwool cubes. Keep the cubes on a tray under flourescants in a vegetation chamber, and only using distilled water to feed the plants. Once roots emerge from the bottom of the rockwool cubes, time to put into net-pots. I use the same 6" netpot from veg throughout flowering. Once u see the roots, put a 1inch layer of (thoroughly cleaned) hydroton in the pots, then the seedling cubes, followed by more rockwool under the stem is supported.
When moving from veg to flower (DWC -> Rumple Bucket's) i just pick up the netpot (with roots hanging and all) and transfer to the buckets.
Hope this helps!
