Veg tent --

Really excited about the 4 LD95 I've got - they've been repotted into 1gallon square containers about 10 days ago and topped - one of them has a weird leaf

Here's a group shot with my karma haze mothers to the right - I think I've narrowed it down to 3 keepers for now but I'm still holding on to 5 while i have the space...

Started LST on the kush clones I've got - I'll probably get 4 into flower in the next few weeks

Karma haze #10 at day 65 --- she's barely hanging on ... burnt all over and dropping leaves from the bottom up
20210423 213058
but still looks and smells nice up top - how much longer you guys think I got? (should be 70-85 days but they've gone from 12/12 to 11.5/12.5 to 11/13... I think shes gona get water only until the end...

This is the same cut of Karma Haze #10 that went in flower about 2 weeks ago... I'm pretty sure she'll do better than the one above

My mystery kush that was my favorite from the last run... whatever was wrong with the soil mix before seems to be sorted or not bothering this girl... she's around day 25

Hi Farmers - I've been a long time inactive member on these boards - I used to be more active as a youth during the OG days but only messed around with growing indoors a few times and failed miserably. Since then I've had a couple outdoor grows which yielded well but the quality wasn't great... I found myself with a lot of time on my hands due to flu and simply can't afford to smoke the amount of grass I'd like. So here we go...

Set-up:
90cm x 150cm x 200cm flower tent @ Day 17- 2 x 200w LED (Crecer) - currently flowering from seed BOG Bubble, Dos-Si-Dos Cake (feminized) - and from clones: gelato33 x birthday cake (T.H. Seeds), Skywalker OG (exact strain and seedbank remains unknown)

60cm x 120cm x 180cm veg tent @ Day 20 split on two levels - 1 x 100w LED veg specs, 2 x 55w t-neon light -- currently contains clones of BOGBubble, skywalker and Dos-si-dos. As well as next generation of seedlings: Karma Haze (Nl5xHaze (dutch cut) x A5 bx). I probably could have vegged another few weeks but I couldn't wait the extra weeks down the line for the harvest... So I just waited long enough to be able to take clones and sent them on their way...

Organic soil: local shops have not had consistent inventory but mainly they're in a mix of Plagron Allmix / Batmix - being fed the full line of BioBizz (fish/grow, bloom, topmax, heaven, algamic) and regular feedings CaMg. I'm doing research to source various organic amendments and dry fertilizers to make my own soil in the long run an brew compost tea.. the goal is to recycle and re-amend soil... some of it will go into pots outside for chili plants - but most of it will stay in these tents.... Tapwater comes out 8.0 - 8.5 - I've been using a home made citric acid solution to bring nutrient solution PH between 6.2 - 6.8

I fried the BOG seedlings earlier with too much light and perhaps too hot of a soil mixture - some of them never recovered and the strongest/bushiest plants turned out to be male.... With the news of BOG's passing I felt obligated to hold onto the male cuttings I took before switching to flower ... the Karma Haze in comparison have been extremely vigorous and the structure is so different - I probably started them a few weeks too early, so I'm doing some significant LST and pruning to make sure they aren't too tall by the time they're ready for flower (hopefully March 1st)

I'm looking into getting a small tent for the drying process - the goal is to set it up next to the flower tent and have a small extractor pulling the air from the dry tent into the flower tent... any thoughts on this? The BOGBubble should finish earlier and I'm afraid exhausting the dry tent into the flower tent might spike the humidity during final weeks of the rest of the ladies.... I may need to install a carbon filter in the veg tent so maybe it makes more sense to set-up the dry tent exhausting into the veg tent where humidity is less of an issue... Im thining either 60cm x 60cm x 160cm or 90 x 60 x 98cm ---Eventually once mothers are established the goal will be to harvest the whole tent at the same time - so im not sure how big I need.... thoughts?

I've read a lot and have seen through 2 outdoor seasons but I'm still a noob when it comes to indoors so happy to have all the help and criticism that you guys are willing to provide!

Definitely love the idea of both going 👏👌🙌😍👍😀I have something like this as well mine is a 4x8 and I truly wish I would have gone with a 4x5 or 5x5 veg instead I got 3x4 and truly don't have the space that I truly want 😢but dealing with it and will definitely get another one soon

I truly love the idea of setting up a separate tent for drying heck just vent each other together and using a intake fan system pulling the air flow through whatever direction you wanted to but definitely interested in seeing what you come up with as well what I can do as well 😀👍😉

Update here - I harvested all of my first run of Karma Haze - they were struggling pretty bad towards the end and the yield wasn't very good... Its dried for over 10 days and is just going from bags to jars... I've sampled some and it seems like it's got keeper potential but I've got to do a way better job.... it's definitely got that coffee shop smell when I smoked a joint, and it's a pleasant change in high compared to the heavy-stoned selection I've been smoking on -- I've read hazes can really benefit from a long cure....

The next one is comin in at Day 31 now and is starting to show some lighter green towards the bottom while also showing some clawing tips... I haven't been giving much BioBizz Grow (N) for the last few weeks as I had top dressed some bat guano with a 3-15-4 and have been assuming they are light feeders --- I'm now wondering if the last ones (picture above) were suffering from being underfed in the last stretch?

I've been having some temperature issues with some spikes up to 85f (my lights go on at 8.30pm but it's been really hot and the room needs a few more hours ( I need to move the time to 11pm - 11am) ... also humidity which was naturally around 45 - 55% but its dropped to about 35% on average now and sometimes drops down to 25%

Any pointers - is she looking hungry or overfed ?? or are these heat stress signs?

My 501st OG which was looking so lush and perfect in the post above also took a bit of a turn for the worse - I think I screwed up the watering cycle and watered her two days in a row last week - I wanted to let her dry out properly and when I checked her at lights on yesterday her lowers were drooping bad begging for water.... this plant still was in an 3gallon fabric pot of my poorly aerated soil and transplanted to a 20l fabric pot before flipping - I feel like that shitty soil is causing the pot to dry out unevenly....

What do you guys think? you can see the curled weak leaves in some of the pics?

things still truckin' along - i'm struggling with temps and forced to dim the lights.. the room where my tent get's really hot in the afternoon and evening (27c before the lights turn on at 8.45pm) ... it's only gonna get worse over the next 2 months or so ... i'm gonna slowly move the lights on time to start later in 15min increments but it won't help that much... I'm remembering why I gave up on growing the first time 15 years ago due to excessive heat in a tiny studio apartment.... fortunately this time I have dimmers and am not sleeping in the same room as the flower tent!

In the pipeline i've started some more top dawg seeds - BG'91 which is labeled BG Chem x Chem '91bx ... My search for some kind of bubble gum continues as I've scrapped the 2 BOG Bubble phenos that I had selected from the first run - I ran it a 2nd time and it just didn't impress compared to the other cuts I have (high leaf/bud ratio, extremely bushy plant that took up too much space for the amount and quality it yielded)...

here's some shots

Karma Haze finishing up - day 63 - been plucking nanners for the past week (I had a brainfart light leak leaving the passive vent open one day - but it could also be the heat or N excess)

well i'm in for a hot first summer grow experience... the day time temperature in the tent (lights off) is up to 30c --- when lights go on at 9pm i have to dim the lights for a few hours to keep things under 32c.... eventually it holds at around 28c for most of lights on...

The rain gods are on my side - temperatures are staying in a healthy range due to the recent cool weather...

I came to realize that my watering practices have been way off - especially when transplanting and moving up to bigger 5 gallon grow bags.... I never really fully saturated my soil and was probably watering too little too often... When emptying the fabric pots of my last harvested plants I could clearly see that the root ball never really took over the final pots....


Veg update - this is what's gonna be going into flower next:
1. Karma Haze - 3 cuts - 2 different phenos .. One that I haven't managed to run to harvest yet in the 5 gallon bag - ready to go in a couple weeks
2. BG'91 (middle) - 6 in about week 3 of veg - just repotted to 1 gallon pot - planning on letting these go natural in 3 gallon bags - maybe even single cola to save space - got a few funky leaves on one (fused leaves, double points), and some variegation in another...
3. LD95 (right side) - 2 cuts from my girls that are in flower -

20210708 113504



Flowering:

Garlic haze - this strain is caked with frost and has beautiful buds - hard to describe the nose on her, sadly a bit 'generic' .. but not at all the typical haze I'm familiar with... not much info about this seedbank (earth witch seeds) ... I've seen some reviews on seedsites that are very positive but mention that it's not really garlicy or hazy... The friend I got it from doesn't even run it anymore ...

Garlic - decided to smell her before the others today.. definitely getting a more complex aroma from her, kind of like a spicy tiger balm smell... very interesting and definitely not generic... I guess weed is kinda like cheese, if you sample the strong ones first you miss out on the nuances of the more delicate ones

501st - she really doesn't yield too well but may be one of the best weeds I've smoked - it's got this really loud bergamote/herbaceous flavor...

Harvested LD95 #4 last sunday at somewhere over 70 days - sadly I found some bud rot in the top of one of the colas the day before - fortunately it didn't spread.... I was able to sample some of what I had to trim off and I am already very impressed (the other LD95 #2 came down today - seems like she yielded a bit less but may be louder in flavor - albeit pretty much identical) -- which says a lot as it was quick dried for only a few days... it's got that tennis ball, burnt rubber, fuelly dank taste that really coats your mouth with flavor that lasted down to the end of each joint...

So next on the chopping horizon will be 2 x 501st OG - this one in a 5 gallon pot should yield well over my 2oz record for this cut... I think leaving some of the lower nugs definitely helped...

I'm getting slightly nervous as the hazey side of my tent is really taking off - until now I haven't really grown any plants that got past half the height of my tent - these girls will be pushing the limits - in a few weeks I'm gonna have to re-arrange my filter and fan to get the lamp as close to the top of the tent! I have dreamed of growing haze (nl5 x haze) for almost 20 years and this plant couldn't be closer to what I had been imagining all these years ... I can't believe I found her in my first pack of haze seeds!

Karma Haze #4 went into flower - making room to transplant two Karma Haze #10 and 2 of the 3 confirmed females from BG '91 seeds -- I had planned on leaving them as single cola plants but may have to top soon as I'm running out of space

Awesome! Well executed and nicely documented grows! Thanks for sharing it! If you wanted my address to send me a sample of each...I guess that could be arranged.

Thanks Mugwort!

Karma Haze seems to have stopped stretching but I've run out of room and they seem to be getting too close to the light - notice some twisting leaves... I've spread the tops away from the light the best I could ...

One of my BG'91 has been showing nice frost on fan leaves pretty early - really nice bubblegum smells off 2 of them...

LD95 dried nug - the taste is almost too overpoweringly fuelly for me but the narcotic effect has me coming back for more... such a pungent peculiar aroma

Rotated one of my lamps 90 degrees to gain a few inches of height and get the tops a bit further away as best I can - the 2 karma haze #10 are in 3gallon fabric pots and haven't shown any degradation on the lower leaves, although there were some twisting leaves towards the top due to heat and light stress (hopeully this is solved by my light adjutment) -- the other cut, karma haze #5, is showing me the same problems I've had in the past, at mid-flower she started showing lighter green lower leaves which deteriorate very fast, losing a few leaves per day... I will check PH run off next watering to see if anything seems off

20210901 225527



BG'91 - I've got 3 phenos that are staggered about 3-7 days apart in flowering (around day 25-30 now).. #1 has crazy frost and a more chem nose, #2 has got a strong sweet pink bubble gum nose - just what i've been looking for in a bubblegum. #3 is furthest behind in flowering and doesn't have the nicest branching and might be the least interesting of the bunch, but she's a week behind, so she could yet surprise me... I've put one bonzai male in a friends greenhouse - planning to chuck some pollen and make my first (intentional) seeds...
20210901 225617



My 2 keepers from my LD95 seed run: #2 and #4 have been put into flowering this week - my friends were a bit disgusted by the filthy diesel terps at first but now they're fiending for it....
