I am back with yet another grow log.

I will be tied to the land until October;

it will be an outdoor grow.

 

I planted:

 

2 White Widow seeds

1 Sour Diesel seed.

 

The Crop King fem'ed seeds are 1 year old for the WW and

2 years old for the SD.

There is a 1:6 chance of a 3 year old WW seed being drawn.

If I get a dud start I will still have time to replant.

 

Yesterday I started by scoring the spines of each seed with a course wet stone.

I soaked the seeds in 2 saucers of RO water, 2 WW in one, 1 SD in the other.

Today I planted the seeds in clear drinking cups 1/2 full of

Fox Farms Ocean Forrest cannabis growing soil.(FFOF)

I planted each seed 1/4" deep.

I keep the light off the roots by placing each cup in a larger black cup.

The WW's are planted in 16oz cups, the SD in a 12oz cup.

 

Last year's grow was very successful, too successful.

I matured the plants until brown.

The weed kicks my ass, tanking my blood pressure in an uncomfortable way.

It is rather strong.

So this year's plan is to veg up some plants in pots as big as I can carry.

My inventory of weed is such that

2 big WW and

1 big SD will be plenty of weed for this year.

I might not need to grow next year.

 

I have scheduled:

 

70 days veg

80 days flowering

 

I will veg under 40W CFLs until they are big enough to transplant.

Then I will start moving the plants outside for the day,

and inside under CFLs by night.

 

Let the games begin.

Only one WW seed has sprouted.  I have started another WW seed and SD seed.

White widow was one of my favorite strains to grow. I liked it better than it's crossed sister white rhino.

I think I like WW best so far too, as well as a friend of mine.  I hope I get a good, clean crop this year.

 

Here is the first sprout, White Widow #1

WW1 May 6, 2018 (1).jpg WW1 May 6, 2018 (4).jpg  WW1 May 6, 2018 (3).jpg

 

It stretched, as expected, so I filled the cup with FFOF to the top.

 

I will plant the second round WW and SD a little later today.

The seeds have not soaked 24 hours yet.

The new seeds sprouted. 

The SD1 is small, but good. 

The WW2 is struggling to get its cotyledons out of the husk.

The WW1 is slow to get going.  I had the lamp too close and it was heat stressing.

I hope to see it get growing faster soon.

I think I will give her sun tomorrow.

The grow is now underway.  Now I just have to try not to cook the plants under the CFL.

The biggest and the smallest are the WW.

I think I heat stressed the poor thing.  It is bouncing back, I hope I didn't hurt her too much.

I am not sure what is going on.  I thought it might be staggered leaf growth.

I have been letting them enjoy the sun for the past couple of days.

The color looks good to me, so the plant is just growing around maybe a tip burn. It certainly looks like its taking off just fine.

The plants are much happier now that my lazy ass setup a fan to keep the light cool.

I will post pics soon.

The is a little bigger than these 2 day old pics.

I now have an adjustable frame to hang utility lights from.  I can

veg the grow under it at night.

The cross bar slides up and down and is clamped in place.

This should work great for vegging up some big plants.

 

I hope...

The grow has been enjoying a few days of clear Southern California sunshine.

The two smaller plants got bent over yesterday.

 

I am watering with worm casting tea with a little Humax and molasse.

 

The bigger plant will probably need a transplant in a few days.

WW 2

2018 Grow a few days before solstice.

IMG_20180619_192752.jpg

 

I transplanted the older WW 1 yesterday.  She is vegging along

The typical June Glume has made for

mostly over cast grow days

with 4 hours of full over head sun.

 

The night lighting is 2 23W and 2 40W CFLs.

I will switch to 4 40W CFLs when

I transplant the younger 2 plants in a week or so.

 

I need to start an over due shroom log,

so cannabis pics to follow sometime after.

This is the grow last night.

Grow 30Jun18 at Night.jpg

 

I transplanted the Sour Diesel yesterday morning.

I transplanted the second White Widow an hour ago.

So all plants are in 3.5gal pots.

 

Today I will probably transplant the first White Widow into its final 5gal pot.

She is scheduled to flip to 12/12 in 12 days.

She has been in this pot for almost 2 weeks.

There should be enough roots to hold the ball together.

 

I'll try to post a pic after the TP.

I am watching World Cup first.

Go Danmark!

Watch out Croatia,

no one can drink as much as a Dane.

The 5 gallon pots are going to make for some bigger plants,

but damn, they are heavy.

I think I need a dolly.

A low rider sort of wagon would be ideal.
