Growpito Mixed Strain Run

388

Well it's time for another grow and I've been away from the farm for far too long.

I discovered after having over 6 months of issues with cloning, vegging, and flowering plants that my meters were junk. Also ended up losing my job in September so I'm just now working again after being denied unemployment lol.

In the mean time I researched plant nutrition heavily, c02 systems, sealed rooms, defoliation, and all kinds of other shit to figure out what went wrong. It didn't take all to find out I had shitty meters but I learned some valuable stuff.

So this current grow started off badly with a 2.2EC but I did some tweaking that I'll get to later. I'm find of ergonomics and efficiency so I bought a cabinet for all my grow shit. Shit is cool.

I'm also now a rep for Growpito cause I like the shit even when I grow shitty shit in it.

Started working on my clone game without using an aero cloner. 24 clones in there of three different strains trying to figure my shit out

Let's get to the shit now though.


Day 9
EC 1.4 in/1.2 out

@Jimster @Aqua Man @MIMedGrower @Kanzeon @Funk junky @PlumberSoCal @Srenots @jumpincactus @hawkman

@MIMedGrower you were right all along but I didn't have the equipment to even be right myself with the Malawi x Panama and everyone else thought it was senescence. Thank you so much

Let's get to the grow.

I'm running 18 Mendo Breath clones, 3 Bruce Banger, and 1 Dinafem Blue Cheese.

So I mentioned having a high EC well I flushed them down to a 1.4ec - tap water is .4 EC and I have them the following

Mega Crop+growpito Beneficials
75% strength monoammonium phosphate
25% strength potassium sulfate
Humic and kelp 5:2
Foliar of Fulvic and Kelp 5:2

The 4 seed plants are on the right. This wasn't meant as a Sog so shhh! It's day 9 btw

Here is day 1

Day 11
EC of 1.5 in and 1.5 out
5.6 pH in and 5.8 out
11/13 Light Schedule
82f w/ 2° leaf temp offset
50% RH

The Mendo Breath are starting to stretch while the mother plants are growing pistols. EC and pH are stable finally.

The monoammonium phosphate and potassium haven't burnt the plants so I figure around week 4 I'll do a 50/50 and around week 6 a 25/75-100.

11/13 Light Schedule
84f w/ 3° leaf temp offset
57% RH

Plants are looking good - to me

Foliar fed yesterday and flooded the tray today. EC is remaining at 1.5 for now. Haven't trimmed anything though.

The 4 mothers in the front right are progressing a bit faster but that's why they have their own pot. I had to tie them back away from each other cause I transplanted them too closely.

The Mendo Breath cuts are between 1-2ft tall and filled the table well. Not a SOG imo so don't accuse me of doing it wrong lol. Roots are coming out the bottom of the 5 gallon pots. Tight internodal distance on all of them. Hopefully they stop stretching but I'm growing bud rather than leaves this time.

Somehow filled a 4x4 with a 3x3 so I am pleased.

Stretching looks to be almost over with the mother plants fully focused on flowering. There's some smell already.

Amazed how they filled the 4x4 space. The Mendo Breath are branchy with few leaves while the mothers are dense and short.

These are all reportedly 10 week strains but I believe the mothers may finish a bit sooner.

More or less had a full pH swing so I'll be adjusting the pH back to 5.5 come next flood.

Plants have really branched out and flowering is progressing. Some light aroma has begun on the Bruce and Blue Cheese. 2 inch internodes on the Mendo Breath and less on the mothers.

No deficiencies have been observed and stretching has ended. The larger clones reached 30" while the mothers have remained short.

50% RH

Finally working our way into week 4. The last foliar was day 21 and some light pruning was done at the base of some of the clones.

No deficiencies but there have been some leaves here and there very low in the canopy that abscised otherwise no issues. Pots were moved around with the mothers and shorter cuttings to the right.

Excited to see how the Mendo Breath develop. Light aromas have begun and the mothers are developing frost. The red stems on the Mendo and they are quite beautiful complimenting the green of their fan leaves.

Enough chatter from me. Here are some photos.

Everything is starting to develop really nicely and it looks like the Mendo has some hints of purple to it.

I'm not using Mega Crop as my base nutrient. Bad habit as I am currently using PrescriptionBlend nutrients.

The Blue Cheese has a nice fragrance while the Bruce Banger are still meh. Mendo has no smell yet either so I'm betting on 10 weeks for everything but the BC.

Terpenes are becoming more noticeable. Frost is looking to be abundant. Not much else going on

Still going strong. Around three or so Mendo Breath clones look to have had a minor Ca issue while some in the left corner are getting dark stripes on their leaves otherwise small bit of die off below the canopy.

A few more weeks to go though. Maybe about 3-4.

Finally got my clones to take off after figuring out nutrients and humidity dome. Also used some cloning gel. I'll probably use all these clones for the next grow to keep this perpetual.

I have 10 Sannie's Extrema, 10 Ace Seeds Zamaldelica x Kali China, 5 Ace Seeds Bangi Congo x Panama, 4 Oriental Express x Nepal Jam, 12 Girl Scout Cookies, 5 Expert Seeds Gorilla Cookies, and 5 Dinafem Blue Cheese.

I'll see how I like the Blue Cheese as I'm flowering it currently but these were great for cloning practice. So far I've only lost 3 clones out of 54.

Used a Grodan gemination tray and stuffed there Growpito into each hole. Foliar every 2 days off Fulvic, kelp, and Monopotassium Phosphate. Charged the medium with 1.0 EC of Mega Crop, humic, fulvic, kelp, and Monopotassium Phosphate. Roots organic cloning gel
