Almost finished with 2nd closet grow.
Posted 12 December 2011 - 06:35 AM
I am doing a bubbleponics system using 2X 40 gal Rubbermaid totes. Each can hold 8 plants. I am using Gen Hydroponics Flora Nova Bloom and nothing else. I have 2X 400 HPS and 2 6in exhaust fans venting through my attic. I spray glued Mylar to cardboard and then hung them against the walls hoping for reflection. I do not think it worked any better then not having it.
I have two strains going 5 of what I will call the Big 6 because it was given to me without a name or any history and well, had to call it something. The other is a basic OC Kush, 4 of these. My second grow went in Oct 17 and got their sex 9 days later (Oct 25th).
Out of the 5 Big 6 plans when I turned them I found 1 dead, guessing not enough light got to her and 1 that was seriously stunted. Again I fear she was smothered out of the light by her sisters. So now i am down to 3 of the Big 6 that are full size and 1 shorty that is trying very hard to catch up. The reason they are called the Big 6 is because when we took the clones there were 6, 1 didn't make it. A week after taking those clones my OC Kush showed up so they had to be labeled.
The Kush was a slow starter. She seemed dead at one point and I almost pulled them. They came to me with Spider Mites that infested everything. We are still fighting the cloning room to clean them out. Will have to break everything down after Harvest to disinfect.
I was able to take care of the Spider problem on the flowers by taking everyting outside one afternoon and hosing it all down. Plants tubs and stones. All of it. Then sprayed the plants with BHG. It took care of the problem for a while. This was a pain as you have to spray the underside of every leaf and stem every 3 days. They went mostly away but I am seeing a little bit of webbing at this point so I am sure they are back. With the final flush less then a week away I will take my chances with them though. But now i have gotten ahead of myself.
Nothing very exciting happened on this grow besides the Mites. The added fan noise has been an issue but not really a big deal. The only entertainment has come from the big plants reaching over and stealing the light from the shorter plants. I had gone out of town for 3 days and came back to find the shorter plants had been completely blocked from the light. I have tied back the Bigger plants and they still try to reach over there. I turned them and found the 1 dead and the 1 stunted, well the stunted plant has taken a liking to the lower light next door.
I will post pictures but because this is so late going up I have 4 or 5 different sets of pictures of the grow. I will put them in seperate post to keep the dates right.
Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome.

The first three are the Big 6 and the second 2 are the OCK.
They are about 21 days old in these.

Thanks Tr33z. I was really surprised how easy it was. I am by far tripling my harvest over last time with fewer plants. I am really looking forward to the next one. Seems you learn something new every time.
Yea I hear that! With a little willingness to learn and the right equiptment its crazy what you can do!!!

The first thing we did was grind up the bud I pinched when started my Flush. I know this had not had any time to cure but we smoked it while harvesting. I think this will become a tradition cause it was fun. If that is a indication of what will be after the cure then I know we are going to really enjoy this grow.
We had to build drying boxes. There was just too much of the stuff for what we used last time. He had a regular filing cabinet that has been gutted and has fans built into it. There is a charcoal filter on the back where the fans exhaust. We were able to get all of the OC Kush into that box.
We had to take 2 cardboard boxes and stack them on top of each other. Ran fishing line through it to hang plants and added a fan at the bottom to move the air out of the box.
The entire process has dried and everything is in Paper Bags right now and will be moved to jars probably tonight.
We had 3 plants of OC Kush and 3 of what we called Big 6. Here are the WET weights:
The OCK gave us 438 grams (15.64 OZ)
The Big 6 gave a eye popping 1,126 grams (40.21 OZ)
I will add the dry weights when I have them. I will probably have to make a couple post to list all the pictures.
