Its_420's 2011 indoor soil tent grow
Posted 12 July 2011 - 06:58 AM
I started off with a clone , bought from the local medical dispensary (yes Im finally legal), of Pre '98 bubba kush (Dr.Feelgoods so Im told). This is the bud they have on the 55 an 8th shelf. They have g13 on the 25 an 8th shelf so its apparently the BEEZ-NEEZ. :DThis is the first day of the new little girl in her new room.
The system I am using is all soil, 5 gal buckets, 400w metal halide for veg and a 3x3 grow tent (bought for 20 bucks and a budweiser mirror I had (worth around 80 bucks) I have a carbon scrubber, 6in inline fan and an aircooled hood.
Here she is a few days later. She looks happy!
I gave her 7ml of grow nutes the first'ish week I had her.(may 24 7ml of grow added)
So I decided at this point I would make her the mother (since shes the only one I had) Here she is after the first cuttings were taken (5 clones taken may 27). Shes looking a little thin now but its okay!
(I used "green light rooting hormone" that I got from the local nursery)
I added 15 ml (3 tsp) to 1 gallon of water and gave to the new mother may 31.
I added another 15 ml of nutes on june 6th.
June 10 I put the new mother in (what i think is) a 15 gal pot. She really seems to like it!!! After about 3 days she started taking off!
June 12 I put 2 clones in soil.(also started to LST her same day)
June 13 put 1 more clone in soil
June 14 put 2 more in soil (one had to wait by the cfl's for two days untill it could get water from its tiny roots)
This is when I had all 5 in the pot
June 24 took 9 clones from mother plant. (all of which died, dont have pics but had a kind of gooey brown "fungus/mold" or something. I think from the heat and no air circulatioin except a few times a day opening the top)
June 27 put the 5 clones in to 5 gal pots.
and a few days later
July 1 added 4 tsp to gallon of water and gave to mother.

The plants are looking good. I just need to make another spot for the mother so I can flip these girls over to 12/12. I might actually start topping them before I flip them.
I added some ducting from the tent to the sliding glass door because it was just venting straight in to my room before. My room is a lot cooler now

Added 8 tsp nutes to two gallons water for mother plant.
Added 1 tsp nutes to 1 gallon water for clones. Took about 3 gallons for all.
Pruned some yellowish leaves and took some fan leaves off mother so light would penetrate below.
Clones had some leaves with maybe burn spots . I removed them.
It has been since july 1 since I added water. The leaves were a bit droopy and the clone pots had soil receding from the outside edge. The soil was very dry but I let the water soak from the bottom and it drew up in to the pot.
I have noticed the bottom branches are really stretching on the clones.

Nah man, I just sold the clones I had. Its my girlfriends bday on tues so I wanted to get a bit of cash. Got 200 bucks for the 5 clones, super nintendo, regular xbox and a fuji vaporizer. gotta love craigslist.
Looking good man. Are you going to LST the clones soon?
Planning on starting some more clones either tonight or tomorrow.

Went and bought a prop tray from the hydro store today. $7 bucks for the top and $2 for the tray , I also got another bottom tray and a tray with holes to put inside the bottom one for drainage and watering etc. Also got some grodan starter cubes. spent like 15 bucks and got some samples of clone-x and 3 bottles of foliar spray.
Took 13 cuttings from mother and put them in the starter cubes. I added some before and after pics of the mom. Its really crazy how fast she pops out the new shoots.
When I clone the mom I am in the habit of taking a cutting so that below where i cut there is 2 mini shoots starting. I should have 26 heads in like 2 weeks, maybe sooner. + the little ones shooting up already and the ones I didnt cut.
I have the clones in the dome inside my tent with the 400w mh on them. I think I should just use some floro lights but I dont have any atm. Maybe if I get that mesh stuff that you put over your outdoor garden for shade? I think it will be around the same price as if i get a floro tube.
Im planning on flipping these clones after 1-1.5 weeks of veg. Last time they got pretty big in about 3 weeks.

update on clones - 11 out of 13 have roots. Im expecting the last two will pop any day.
I took 20 more cuttings from the mother today. Should have some decent ones to pick from.
heres some pics.

She has been growing pretty slow since I took 20 clones off her. Maybe too much? Hopefully with this watering she will start shooting up again.
Here's some pics.
Not sure why no one is commenting or if its even getting seen (I never see it under "new posts", ) but any comments are appreciated. Thanks for stopping in.
