Heavy Weight Fast and Vast - LED/HPS

11 posts in this topic

Hi All, me again back with another journal this time with Heavy Weight Seeds - Fast and Vast, which are supposedly producing 600-800gms ms2 in just 8 weeks from germination to harvest!

Well, I'm five weeks in with three of them and four weeks in with one and as you can see they are nowwhere near ready and ain't goning to be in three weeks!

Although that may be down to my pH keep rising, up to 7.5 at one point, and they were also getting a bit cold when light was off for 4 hrs each night.

They got some serious growing to do if they are to produce anywhere near 600gms let alone 800gms!

I reckon by the end I'll be lucky if I get 200-300 off all of them but that's not a problem, I'll have some NL autos on the go later this week so 200-300gms would carry me through 6 weeks till they're ready.

They're currently under my Viparled 675w LED light and will get swapped to 600w HPS at the weekend.

Anyway, here's some pics.

Peace y'ole

Hi man good to see you back for some action!

 

Well the strain could probably reach the 600gr per square they claim, but you would need to top them get as many tops as you can fill entirly the tent and flower it, with the 4 plants grown in that display for sure they wont reach as you guessed it ;) but they still look nice and happy I would just use the oportunity to throw some seeds in 7L pots or something like this everywhere you can in 12/12 from seed with these ones, it will feel your missing grams ;) 

 

I will be around to see how these ones finish anyway!

Have a good grow and thanks for sharing

Thanks Dust, I'm just experimenting with these four and then four NL autos, if not enough I'll go back to normal photoperiod strains.

All the best my friend.

Hi Guys and Girls, almost time to harvest these babies, three of them will be 8 weeks on Wednesday this week and one is a week behind.

None of them are completely ready so will take longer than the 8 weeks stated by Heavy Weight Seeds, I reckon another week or so for one of them, another 2 weeks or so for another two and obviously longer for the one that is a week younger.

Here's some pics.

Hi Guys and Girls, time for a little update as I cropped two plants last night.

Measuring only 49cms and 55cms they have cropped 231gms and 230 gms of wet, so should dry to about 115gms. I work on getting 25% of wet weight, anything more is bonus.

So roughly speaking they'll produce just over 2 ounces per plant and for such short plants that's pretty damn good IMHO.

Here's some pics of them before I cropped.

Peace y'ole

Congratz on the harvest man nice frosty buds! Maybe just a liiiitle bit too green next try to stop feeding a few days earlier and give them a good water flush and eat everything thats left in the soil ;) But im sure it will be a great smoke still!

 

Thanks for sharing the pic and hope the next one will go as good or better ;)

They were flushed for about 7-10 days before harvest and yes very nice smoke, very fast hitter in the head too.

Hi Rogering, yes I think that would work nicely.

 

TBH honest I would grow 4 plants per sq metre so you could go with 64 plants, unless you mean your tent is 4" x 4" not 4 metres?

 

They grow as wide as they do tall so no problem with height at all and if you spread across mesh you would get even more yield.

I'm still smoking the last crop got about another 2 weeks worth but I just cropped some RQS NL autos.

 

Well, I cropped one so far and got 730gms of bud, which if I lose 2/3rds in drying I'll end up with at least 8.5 ounces from one plant!!!!

 

Even if I lose 3/4 I'll still end up with 6.5 ounces, which is still impressive.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
