Hello fellow blades. I believe it is high time for me to start my own grow journal now that I am back up and running after quite some time. So let's get down to business! Background: I have started out with my two favorite bag seeds that I had. One of them was from some 'Trainwreck' and I grew out one of those seeds on my first grow and that was a great learning experience. Also some pretty decent bud for having to chop early and get the hell outta there in time. This grow OP will be a perpetual one that I will harvest every 2-3 weeks. I have two plants from seed that I hope are girls and will be used as my mothers(hopefully), from which I have taken two clones so far with one starting to take off so I am off to a good start. Specs: Soil: Just using some boring old Organic Miracle Grow without anything added. I have each of the mothers in a 6 in. pot and will probably flower the clones in plastic cups until I find a good micro solution to grow the clones out in. Nutrients: Using some 5-1-1 fish emulsion currently and plan to add in some Blackstrap molasses more towards flower. For preventative maintenance I am using neem oil about every two weeks. Using RO water and a tap water dose every once in a while for the hardness in it. Ventilation: Two Yate Loon 120mm case fans with a carbon scrubber Grow Box: Filing cabinet that is 13.5"W x 18"L x 24.5"H. I am using the two drawers for separate chambers instead of opening up the whole space for one taller chamber. Each drawer has about 12" of usable total height. Lighting: Veg/mothers: Three white LEDs. Two of them are plain 3W emitters while the other has three diodes on one emitter. Currently I run a 24/0 schedule but once I get some timers it will be more like 20/4. Flowering: Currently I have 16 3W emitters in the flowering chamber, which calculates out to 30W actual usage. 6-660nm Red, 4-630nm Red, 2-Warm White, 2-445nm Blue, and 2-465nm Blue. Light schedule is obviously 12/12 for flowering. I plan to double the amount of LEDs which should fill out my driver capabilities quite nicely, some of these will include UV chips. Here is me building the flowering LED. Goals: I would like to do a more comprehensive study on LEDs and devise a good spectrum that will produce a good amount of dense bud that is full of trichs. In the plastic cups for the clones that are flowering I am aiming for a quarter out of each cup after 2-3 months. I think producing a Half O a month would be plenty for me. On that note has anyone grown out of the Solo plastic cups all the way through flower? How big did you get them/what issues did you encounter? Is my weight estimate doable? And now for the pictures! This would be Day 1 of growth on my first clone. Day 2 And here are the two hopeful women. One on the right is the 'Trainwreck' seed and I will just call it Hobbit Weed and the one on the left is going to be called Sage Weed because that's my buddy's name who is the one that found and gave me the bean. Well hope you guys enjoy! I am going to attempt a day by day picture journal with some thoughts as well so stay tuned! I can't think of anything else at the moment so I will just go have a toke. Comments/criticisms/questions are always welcome.
