First Grow: Bubble buckets, multiple strains w/ pics

Discussion in 'Hydroponic Grow Journals' started by jmj1024, Sep 25, 2010.

  1. So trying out growing for the first time started out with 1 clone of Oreo (Durban Poison x SS) in a 5 gallon DWC bucket in a 5.5 inch net pot under a 5500K, 10,500 lux, 156 watt fluorescent array. I am using advanced nutrients sensigrow, tarantula, sensizym, botanicare zho, sweet, liquid karma, canna rhizotonic and sm-90 I also added AN voodoo juice in the last few days, also I use distilled water. She has been in veg for about 3 weeks now on 24/0, she keeps a bit of nutrient burn but overall is growing like crazy. Here are some pics:
    When I first put her in the ground:

    Day 3 again:
    4-73 hr.jpg
    Day 4:
    5-97 hr.jpg
    Day 8: also when I first get my ph and tds meters on day 7 and realize I need distilled b/c my tap is 430ppm and 8 pH, corrected these issues and you can see the plant respond.

  3. So I got a 1000 W HPS and moved the girl under there since I want to free up the other lights for some other projects and I want to start her flowering soon anyway and will as soon as my tent arrives. Here are some more pics to show how she is doing, I cut 10 clones off of her between these two days and 5 more right after the day 21 pic, so here we go:
    Day 25:

  4. So I should probably make this thread actually live up to its name and add another strain, so I am gonna post up some pics of my perplex lady, she had a little trouble at the start as she was about to flower when I got her from the club :eek: and showed signs the next day, but after 3 weeks of 24/0 she seems to be revegging and turning into a serious bush:

    More to come soon and I am germinating 6 black nelli(black thai x willie nelson) beans, 3 have broken ground so far, should be some bomb old school sativa, but a pain to flower as based on the parents it looks like it should be in the 13 week+ range, hope its worth it :p, also germinating 3 bag seed and trying to get a chem D clone going.
  6. Awesome start man I really like the picts with the into Iguanas...I am looking for another 1 to replace the one that died after almost having him for 10 years.None of the pet stores around here have them anymore.
  7. Just finished assembling my new 3'x3'x6'6" grow tent:), so will be switching the Oreo to 12/12 today:smoke:, seedlings are coming along nicely 3 of the Black Nelli's have broken ground and one is forming its second set of true leaves already :D and the others have germinated, no germination yet from any of the bagseed :(, will try to post up pics when I get off work.
  8. So finally got a chance to post up some pics:
    Oreo Day 29 pics, got tent and changed to 12/12:

    Oreo Day 30:

  10. Awesome man , keep it green bro and thanks for sharing mad K+

  11. Thanks man, doing my best and learning as I go :smoke: hopefully I will get some nice bud out of it as well.

    I had an Iguana growing up and have always liked them and reptiles in general. Sorry to hear about yours dying, that is always rough:(. As far as a new one goes, if you can't find one local I have had good luck with in general and have heard they do a good job of shipping live reptiles if you wanted to try them out.
  12. So I open the tent today just after lights on and what do I see? Preflowers on the Oreo after only its second dark cycle of its life, looks like she was ready to go :D.
  13. Looking great mate... good job..:cool:

  14. Thanks man, checked out your journal, that is one crazy SoG you are gonna have, can't wait to see how it turns out :cool:

  15. Thanks man, an honor to have you check out my journal :hello:, learned alot from your journals, probably gonna try out that bubble cloner soon, since my clones aren't doing as well as I would like with the traditional method.
  16. And a little update from the flower closet:
