Critical Kush 4x4 600w hps grow

Discussion in 'Indoor Grow Journals' started by Clinton Kong, Jun 25, 2017.

  1. This is the beginning of my critical Kush grow journal. X5 Barney's farm critical Kush seeds germinated in paper towel in-between two plates and used my electric blanket to keep them warm to save money on a heat mat! Seeds germinated yesterday after being in paper towel for less than 24 hour's. Potted them straight away using ordinary potting soil. Using a 100w CFL to start with then changing to 600w hps. Done a few grows before, best one being Blue dream where I got 18oz from 5 plant's with the conditions in the tent not very good and ran into a few problems aswell. I've got a better set up now so hoping to do good out of this one [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  2. Forgot to mention seeds broke the surface today and while I'm using the cfl (length of time still not decided) I'm trying to keep the temperature floating around 24°c

  3. Quick update! 4 of the 5 made it only 3 are looking good though. Hope the other one bounces back and doesn't die on me cos 3 plants will be a waste in the space I've got (done 5 before but it got a bit crowded) 4 would be nice Been watering with plain pH'd water at 6.2 with a syringe in a circular motion around the seedling. Will update again in a week or so! Any input would be good [​IMG]

  4. Gonna try and pop this and hope it grows strong so I can either replace the weaker one out of the 4 or have it as a 5th. Moist paper towel in-between two plates again, just put to bed with the electric blanket. Sleep well my little bean! [​IMG]

  5. Sour D seed popped today, going to put it into some all mix soil unlike with the Critical Kush where I used ordinary potting soil. Hoping it will take and catch up with its sister's[​IMG]

  6. So it's been two weeks since the critical Kush broke the surface and one week for sour diesel. Been still giving them a light watering every day and a slight mist but been drying out quick because of the temperature. Had a really busy weekend so wasn't able to check on them much and visited them at 1400 before the lights went off and they were very droopy and looked like near death! After 6 hours had passed I checked on them and and they were looking good again (this photo) still waiting for roots to show at the bottom of the pot then I will transplant them into 75% all mix and 25% perlite. Love my babies, cant wait to see them grow [​IMG]

  7. This is my set up by the way. Not looking very tidy at the moment but the environment when sealed seems to be good, will tidy once I take the CFL out and switch to hps. Will update again soon. Have a good week everyone! [​IMG]

  8. Critical Kush at 3 weeks old. Just transplanted today into 75% allmix 25% and changed to 600w hps (not sure if to start at a lower wattage) input welcome. Unsure on nutrients and how much longer to veg for at the moment.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  9. This one here is the sour diesel at two weeks old. Light probably a bit too high but will that out tomorrow. Temps higher with hps, just hope we don't have too much really hot weather[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  10. Looking great! I'm going to be starting a tent just like that soon. Btw I've ran critical kush and sour diesel before and both are great smoke. My criticals were a bit bushy but produced very well and the sour diesel has a nice build with great side branches. Good luck, subd.

  14. So it's been 4 weeks since they broke the surface (3weeks for the sour diesel) they're looking good. Gotta go to the gardening store to get nutrients and a few supplies today. Will do another update soon [​IMG][​IMG]

  15. Managed to get nutrients today and new ducting etc. Used Dutch pro grow A and B 10ml of each per 5 litre added A first then B then just under 0.5 ml of oh down and managed to get a pH of 6.2. Feed half a litre to each plant. Let's see how it goes [​IMG][​IMG]

  16. Just checked on them and it looks like they enjoyed the feed. Going to sleep soon, will go see them when they wake up and possibly top and train them more. Also got new acoustic ducting

  18. Critical 5 weeks and sour diesel 4 weeks old now. Seemed to like the feed I give them last time so I'm going to give them 15ml per 5ml of the A and B next time. Still unsure about how much longer to veg for.....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  20. First feed today in their 20L pots
    Per 5ltr of water I added 15ml of Grow A and 15ml of Grow B which took the pH from 7.2 to 6.5 so I left it at that. Then I fed each plant 2ltrs which was enough for no run off but will have to add more next time to get some run off. [​IMG][​IMG]
