Hello! I am finally opening my "white garden" journal. My signiture has my first grow, which is still in flower. Having the capability to have one veg room, and another for flowering, i germinated my feminized White lsd seeds and ice seeds from www.marijuana-seeds.nl . I also went ahead and threw down a few white widoow seeds, because since i had these seeds sitting around and will never use other than this time, so this is my second, "white" grow. I also know white widow is in both of these strains genetics (not this particular strain of white widow -but they are very high quality seeds i obtained from a trusted surce a while ago.) I also got a handful of Sugar Bubba OG and am germinating a few as i plan on taking one or two females in if i get any. I took three of the former seeds, one was germinated a few weeks ago and is already showing preflowers that i am pretty sure will be female. My journal will be updated with pictures at least once a week. As many might know , my current journal for the flowering is a very specific and descriptive journal, and was/is my first grow. This being the second, I will be making the entries a little different. Feel free to pm me anytime...i like to pop in here on gc in the morning! OK....lights: Veg room with 400watt ceramic metal halide. Plan on keeping under this spectrum for most of veg. Ice plant may need to flower sooner (read it finishes fast )but each strain will be veg and flower as it needs, not just "8 weeks and done". Flower room: two 400watt ballasts, both now upgraded to hortilux Super HPS EYE bulbs. One moving ceiling track for one light to slowley travel and cover parts that normally are not...this particular light on the track has a generic run of the mill "winged " metal reflector with the metal that appears to be "hammered". Other reflector is stationary, encloses bulb in tempered glass, cleaned once a week, and has either grates on each side to vent air or you can take them off. Mine have been taken off and ductinng has been attached for cooling and to take the hot ait out of the light. Medium/Nutes: This grow the seeds germinated, ALL withiin 24 hours of being put in fox farm's light warrior, and yesterday were transplanted into a mixture of one and a half part fox farms happy frog,one part ocean forest,and half part coco coir added. This first grow in flowering is in undiluted ocean forest. I love the soil, and already got a few grams over three ounces on two autos, and i can taste the benefit of this soil, however, it is very "hot" and a month ago lost an entire batch of northern lights to this as the seedlings just seemed to burn as soon as they touched it. No perlite or anything is needed. I have never ever had anything but instant and even drainage from this brand soils and i figure if i am going to order these neat strains i might as well give them undiluted soil. I added coco as it is supposed to hold nutrients well.. As for nutrients, i am usiing fox farms (suprise right lol) full line except the bush doctor nutes. The micro herd or their "micro brew" is also available in a local form the grow shop and they also have a catalyst like fox farms "kangaroots" that essentially works like molasses, with natural carbohydrates and encourages a lot of root zone activity and i thought this would be perfect for germinated seedlings and they have developed massive roots- they are wild and going everywhere, down to the bottom of the pot though the leaves have not even had their full first set yet! I also use fox farms granular line (open sesame,beastie bloomz,cha ching). I am using cos i used wiith wonderful results this last time and there is NO chemical taste to the end product, but i flush starting two weeks before i want to harvest. It may seem like a lot of nutrients (big bloom,grow big, tiger bloom, open sesame, beastie bllomz,cha ching, root roids, hydrobact) but three of them , big bloom, hydrobact, and the root roids, although helping the plant of course, are really soil conditioners. It replaces the blackstrap unsulphered molasses and it does renew the soil i noticed a huge difference after the first use. Grow room size- i have to havge my husband measurre it lol but can accomodate up to 10 plants. The room is a completely seperate constructed room very similar to the one constructed in jorge cervantes ultimate grow dvd but is made to expand as lights are added. I wanted to get this open, i have seen a LOT of ppls here curious about the White lsd strain and when i saw it the first time i waanted it but to be honest it scareds me a little with the name haha! I also am really looking forward to the Ice as i found i really like the hash taste and it is said to taste like this! I have been out for anniversary and will be back at the end of the week and will have lots of pics...from beginning to current! All water is reverse osmois filtered and bought once a week at the local grocery store in five gallon jugs. Method: Obviously soil..but i dont know what this is called but i tried tying the plants down and topping them this first one and the effects are very nice. I plan on topping one ice, and one white lsd, and leaving the other ones (am only doing 2 or so of each i like to have small amounts of GOOD quality for My own use)-however ALL are gonna be tied down and modified or trimmed to increase yield. If you look in my first journal you will see what i mean. Pics otw!
