Took clones today for the third run for the business. I might be trying a different nutrient line for this run, but everything else will pretty much be the same as my previous grows.

50/50 mix of Coast of Maine Stonington blend and Sunshine Mix #4
Start in 0.5 gal plastic containers, grow for 4-5 weeks in those containers.
Transplant up to 3 gal plastic containers, grow for another 3-4 weeks in those containers.
Transplant up to 5 or 6 gal fabric bags, veg for 2 weeks and then flip to 12/12 for flower.
The first top will be when the plants get to their 6th node and topped down to the 4th node.
Topping, lollipopping, and defoliation will happen once a week or as needed.

There's extra cuts in there for each strain and some cuts for new mother plants, 31 clones all together.

One week later and these might be the best looking clones I've taken so far after one week in the clone dome.

I've been spraying them in the morning and at night with just filtered well water from the tap. I had the vents closed for the first two days, half opened for the next two days, and fully opened since. I've made sure the Root Riot cubes are moist everyday. Two LED strip lights over them, PPFD 200-300.
RH 80-90% Temp 80-85°F

So these clones had one bad day along the way where I took the dome off for too long and never recovered. I got my 16 clones, but not as healthy as I was hoping for. Give them a week and they'll be fine. I decided I'm not gonna run any Colombian Miracle in this crop. Four of each of the other four strains. Today was day one of veg.

End of week 1 of veg, the back two MAC plants don't want to grow...

Everything else is looking good. Topped a bunch of them today, anything that was past the 6th node got topped back to the 4th node.

Might have to cut a couple more clones of MAC. I have another clone from this series of clones that I was planning on keeping as a mother plant, but it could be added in to this run and I have a The Purple One mother plant too that could be added in. We'll give those two MAC plants another week before they get culled.

I fed these plants with VegaMatrix nutes from Kyle Kushman. I'm going to be using his line of nutes for this run to see how they compare to Advanced Nutrients. I'm a huge fan of AN, but I'm in the process of swithcing over to autowatering systems and the AN nutes do not smell good at all in the reservoir. The VegaMatrix nutes are 100% veganic and hardly smell at all.

VegaMatrix
Grow @ 5 mL/gal
Bloom @ 2 mL/gal
Boost @ 2 mL/gal
Prime Zyme @ 2 mL/gal
Amp It @ 1 mL/gal
pH @ 6.0, 250 mL to each plant


I ordered a gal of Phyre (microbial inoculant) today for $54. Forgot that didn't come with the starter pack. That pack was a liter of everything else including Hard n Quick (foliar spray) and Big n Sticky (PK bud booster) for flower. The starter pack was $290.

End of week 2 of veg. Culled the two MAC plants that didn't want to grow and added in one MAC from my mother plant tent. I'l be flowering The Purple One mother plant in this run as well to get to my 16 plants. Fed them earlier in the week and today so just twice a week right now and they're only getting 250 mL when I water them. Repositioned some of my tents to make room for a 5'×10' drying tent. Everything that didn't get topped last week, got topped today.

Just transplanted these today, end of week 4 of veg. They're in 3 gal plastic containers now. Adding in another The Purple One plant. I was using it as a mother plant for a while. Gonna train it tomorrow to get it shorter.

End of week 9 of veg, not a great week of growth. I was gone for three days and the RH got up pretty high for quite a while during that time. The plants did not like that. Gotta figure out a better way to control the RH automatically. Defoliated, lollipoped, and topped these plants. Added a dehumidifier as well.

End of week 10 of veg, flipped the lights last night, day 1 of flower was today. Did the major defoliation and lollipop yesterday. These plants are too big for this tent, but I'm going to try and train them under the trellis after one week of stretch the best I can and do another major defoliation and lollipop at day 21.
