All dry amendments, living soil custom blend

Coast of Maine (CoM) stonington blend
CoM organic plant food mix (kelp,lobster,EWC)
CoM earthworm castings
Fox farm jump start
Fox farm buds and bloom
Perlite
Vermiculite
CoM buds and bloom just added as a top dress
Great white shark myco

Added 1/10th fox farms happy frog just because I had some and it would cover me for neuts through seedling and start of veg till me dry amendments begin breaking down during month 2

Also did a tea with all the dry amendments mixed 3tbs of each in 3 gallons of water and aerated For 24 hours at weeks 2 and 4 coming up on week 6 they’ll get another tea

Should have plenty of nitrogen, just looked eerily similar to nitrogen def, but also mag at the same time, epsom salt should be here tomorrow but had to water today so it’ll have to wait another day

E/ they are showing signs of improvement I’ll probably hold off on the epsom salt, new growth is looking better so I’ll give it a bit and feed the epsom salt in a week if I see it appearing on the new growth
I don't use a lot of cal mag until pistils start showing, maybe every other feed...But I use RAW NPK's entire line. I don't know dick about organics, sorry...I do use enzymes and microbes, algae, and aminos. I won't do a grow without them Heres my grow feeding chart plus I add 1 tsp of grow or bloom depending on stages, 900TDS for veg with indica, 700 tds for sativa, 1200-2000 tds indica during bloom indica, 900,-1500 sativa... Can you enlarge this?

Ok so been battling the PM as well as fungus gnats, i seem to be slowing the PM if not stopping it, been spraying foliage at lights out every 2 days with the southern AG fungicide as well as doing some leaf dripping, primarily the infected leaves, threw a bit of DE down on the soil, sucks for the microbes but I gotta get the gnats and PM under control I’ll re-feed and inoculate in a few days, gnats seem to be coming under control as well since the DE has been but down, getting less and less in sticky traps, replacing every day to day and a half to see the progress.

With that being said the plants do seem happier, the little Barney’s farm cookies kush that was topped is coming along, but I believe Huston, we have a problem, one of the cookies Kush autos… might not be so auto haha, we’re about to close in on 2 months and she’s just barely starting to show sex. Lowered her down off the stand onto a box she looks like she was starting to hide from the light, so now I’m being nuts but… she’s in it for the long haul, these lights aren’t changing from 18/6 until this auto run is done so she’ll veg for at least 3 months, same with the cookies kush when she is ready to flip in another month and a half or so that’s when I’ll charge the light cycle,… might need to start thinking of starting some different training on her

Last 2 pics are the that forgot it’s an auto lol we’ll see if she stretches out with being lowered from the light now

Yeah I can get it to where I can read it that looks similar to my last run when I was feeding, but using all fox farm lineup

On the upside the monstercropped clones are starting to veg took about a month from cutting to now to get to this point, left to right is Congo mystery strain then Cinderella 99, then a cutting from a plant I liked the bud structure from, either a white widow or another Cinderella 99 not sure, last one is unknown strain

I have one more just barely starting to show signs of growth, we’ll see who’s ready for the flower tent by the time the autos are ready, will probably keep that tent at 12/12 light cycle and the veg tent in 24/0

Pulled all of them out for another fungicide bath, don’t mind the droop she’s out of the light early plus just got a soaker lol. Precautions, she’s not showing any PM but gunna keep up on her, but you can see the progress of the topping on her so far

They got another dose last night this time with 50/50 water to peroxide, then just did another infected leaf strip this morning, it’s still there but I think it’s slowed, I removed a bunch of lower buds off one of the plants that had PM on leaves too close to the buds for my liking

Looking good, sounds like you got the pm under control, that stuff sucks.
Working on it, once I’m through this auto run about another month probably, I’ll be into all photos, upside they’ll all be in veg to sill treat them for PM for at least 2 weeks after the autos are out to make sure I don’t see any recourring before I flip to flower, the candy kush that forgot to auto, she’s gunna be a monster lol, but I’ll do some training and maybe scrog her to try it out

Yeah that candy kush completely forgot it was an autoflower lol, plant farthest to the right, just getting huge, she’s got another month at least before I plan to switch to 12/12 I may have a scrogged out monster on my hands. Between her, the cookies Kush I up-potted to a 3 gallon pot last night, and I have to up pot a few of the clones and get them to really start pushing up their size so they’ll be ready to flower when these autos finish

Girls are all looking happy today, PM has slowed down to a halt, will spray them all again tomorrow night, haven’t seen a gnat in a few days so I think those are knocked out as well

Considering up-potting the failed auto to a 7 or 10 gallon, gunna scrog most likely not 100% yet but topped it as well so we’ll see how it goes, she’s an experiment now, hopefully a happy one, gave her a full feeding yesterday now that I know she’s gunna keep going

The auto-non-auto candy kush is doing great today, topped what 2 days ago already showing new growth, so went and decided to top the cookies Kush again, would have done lower branching as well but I’ll wait till they catch up then top all again might go for 16 to 32 tops haven’t decided yet


Same bud from previous post but this Hindu Kush is completely different than the same seeds from the last run same pack too, those buds are wayyyy denser, last run both plants had very airy buds, gunna contribute that to the FC-E8000 I lowered it down about an inch today the seemed like they where starting to stretch for the light

Just looking at this most mature Hindu Kush, gunna grab the scope later, she’s really fading out in 75% of her leaves, gotta take that first trich check, she is getting some purple going though

All of the autos are right around 9 weeks old so she is right in the maturity range, but she matured much faster than the others, she’ll just open up space for the other plants once she’s ready to be cut, then I’ll start some heavier training on the cookies Kush and bring over the one Cinderella 99 clone that’s really starting to grow good

Quick few shots of a lower bud I plucked off, stripped the leaves and got in on the bud. I’d say she’s got some more time to go

Definitely agree
+1 on that.
Pay attention to your watering now more accurately.
She will drink less when finishing. I know this for photos more than autos. 🤷‍♂️
If you have been keeping track/measuring [ I know OCD ] you will notice when she slows.
C99 looks real nice. 👍

Thanks guys! Glad I know a LITTLE more than my last run although I’d say it turned out alright, the yield on this run will be smaller but that’s fine, may put that cookies kush in a 7 or even 10 gallon pot, I plan on topping that C99, cookies kush, and candy kush that forgot to auto and go for 16-32 tops before I switch to flower the candy kush is only 1 topping away she’ll be a monster,

Here’s the Hindu Kush and candy kush from my last run with a 7 week cure, major difference over the weeks

Went ahead and topped the Cinderella 99 monstercropped clone on all 4 main tops, did the same on the cookies Kush a few days ago, and the candy kush, gunna bush these 3 out and flower them out in a scrog, 2 more monstercropped clones one either white widow or the Congo strain are starting to reveg heavy as well so might have 5 plants scrogged, we’ll see how it goes and if I can get a scrog set up. I have string just need some poles and I can rig something up in there, if I can fly just buy what I need by then or find it

Here’s the Cindy 99 that’s really revenging crazy and has been topped and she’s still in the 1/2 gallon pot, might up-pot her tomorrow
