Going From Seed This Time Around.. L.a. Kush Cake, Blue Gelato #41 & Secret Cookies X Kush Mints #11

Discussion in 'Grow Diaries' started by Bubba kush, Jan 14, 2019.

  1. This is my first run from seeds. The reason I decided to go this route was due to having spider mites on my last run. I got the clones from a good friend and did no preventive maintenance, my bad. I left the room empty for a year. I am resetting and changing things up.

    First run with LED, Spydrx Plus. I was running 6 1000’s in Block Buster hoods.

    First run with coco running Cocotek compressed bricks. I ran a Current Culture and loved it just wanted more plants than 12. Ran Sunshine #4 in the past and loved it due to hand watering and being able to do it every 3-4 days. Ran flood trays with rockwool and hated it.

    First run with GH Cocotek nutrients. I ran Flora Nova, Dutch Masters and AN

    Strains are...

    Barney’s Farm Blue Gelato 41 feminized

    Seed Junky Genetics L.A. Kush Cake feminized

    Seed Junky Genetics Secret Cookies X Kush Mints #11 regular seeds

    All the Barney’s popped

    3 of the Seed Junkies did not pop.

    Most are doing ok but I have a few stragglers that I am trying to work with as I am going to pick a couple of each strain for mother’s. You never know one of the stragglers might be the one lol.

    My room is 9 x 15 with almost 8’ ceilings. I have used the entire room before but that was a pain crawling under the plants and having no work space, yet it was the best results. I now have some built in trays I made and have much more room now.

    I will be using this as my flower room moving forward and vegging in a 8x4 tent.

    I read online that it is necessary to buffer with Cal Mag and I did.

    I popped the seeds in a paper towel then placed in Root Riot Plugs. Next time I will go straight to Coco due to the amount of water the plugs hold after transplanting into the solo cups with coco.

    They stalled a little due to over watering in the beginning. They started to have issues and I think it was to over watering and the PH being a tad low and not getting enough CalMag. After I raised the nutrient PH to 6.0-6.2 they started to take off a bit.

    I am giving the strugglers 25%-30% nutrients and going to let them skip a watering and see if they pick up some steam.

    The T5 is on 24/7 for now and temps are consistently 79°-81° at the leafs (have not turned on the ac yet) with RH around 60%-65%. I turned on my CO2 4 days ago at 800ppm as this is a sealed room.

    I will be putting them under one of the Spydrx in the next week.

    My last run was a nightmare due to letting some get too big and not putting in the work.

    This run I will put in the time needed.

    I have a ton of questions but will start with only a few.

    1. Should I run my CO2 PPM less or more at this stage, they seem to like it?

    2. Do you think the twisted leafs where due to PH?

    3. Since I am going from seed and do not know these genetics should I not top them and not do HEAVY defoliation

    Any help/advice I can get will be much appreciated.

    Thank you everyone in advance, much love

  9. Here are the ones that stalled out. My fault
  10. Was going to wait to transplant them but I might be going out of town for a day or two and can not leave in the solo’s.

    Some before and after shots

  11. Would have liked to get more roots but I will take what I can get especially if I do have to take off for a couple days.

  12. I plan on doing multiple feeds per day but do you think these pots are going to be big enough. I am only going to veg probably 2-3 weeks from this point

  18. I didn’t sleep the two nights ago because I was cleaning the garage and room from 8pm till 7 am. Feels so good to have it about 90% ready and more space to move around
