    First Grow/Lowryder#2/Soil/CFL

    So, I started this plant the beginning of April. She's a feminized Lowryder #2. I chose her because of her harvesting time and lax light cycle. I began by planting the seed directly into Ocean Forest in a plastic beer cup. I put a plastic bag over the cup until she sprouted on April 4th.

    This is her on day 6. She is under 104W 6500K and 23W 2700K for 24 HOURS A DAY.


    She outgrew her beer cup and I transplanted into a larger pot with more Ocean Forest. She is very compact but growing fast. I have only been giving her distilled water. The temperature has been in the mid 80s in the cab. I fear the worst.

    I have still been giving her distilled water and have now changed the lighting to 20/4 to stimulate some vertical growth and flowering. I changed some of lightbulbs to 2700K. She is looking healthy.

    Day 49. New light setup. I am trying to get light to hit some of the smaller buds. I try and rotate the plant 90* every few hours (4-5).

  8. One of the best lowryders i've ever seen, I hope mine come out like that. :bongin::yummy:
     

  9. Thanks man. I should have done SCROG to get better development of the lower bud sites, but I was just trying to get a successful grow out of this.
     
  10. ya my lowryder 2 seeds should be here tomorrow, i cant wait to get going :D
     

  11. Are you using CFL?
     
  12. Some great pictures there. Nice low cost system. Congrats man.

    Gave her some UVB. I have a pet tortoise and I snatched his 100W UVB light. Maybe this will do something positive? Let's hope!
    Also gave her some molasses with her distilled water yesterday.

    Day 52 light setup with UVB(not shown).


    I was worried that she would not make her 9 week mark because of the things I read with CFLs and some Lowryders. However, I think she is on time for her June 6th harvest.
     

  14. yea 206 total watts over 3 plants, the seeds came today !!!!!:D:D I'm waiting for my grow box paint to dry for awhile before I germinate.
     

  15. So are you trying to get a really short plant or did you just choose LR because it is quick and autoflower?

    I was surprised when my LR didn't make it past 12 inches haha but also happy because I wanted it somewhat short.

    I really want to try and grow a plant that is a single cola, like a bonsai type one. Any suggestions? I know LR probably isn't the best strain choice but I got some freebee seeds too.
     
  16. Hi Fat_Angel!
    I'm also growing LR2, it's great to see some pictures of how it should be done.
    The older of the two plants I have is at day 17 today, but is nowhere near as developed looking as yours was at that age.:( It's in peatmoss and perlite under a single 125w CFL. It got light burn around day 6 & 7 and I think this may have stunted it. I have a backup that's 7 days old, we'll see how that looks an ten days time.

    Anyway enough about me! I hope you get more visitors to this thread, I know there's a lot more people growing Lowryders now and they could all do with seeing your progress.:D

    That's it for now. Good luck with the rest of your grow!:smoke:
     

  17. Thanks man, those were some kind words. I bet yours will do just fine. A little light burn shouldn't hurt much. Hell, I started getting deformed leaves and weird spots on some leaves early on and I thought she was a goner, but she did alright in the end. If you have a grow journal I will be following it now, if not START ONE!!
     
  18. And also my temps throughout the entire grow have been mid to high 80s so heat is definitely not a huge deal, as you can see.
