Soft farms pink lemonaid and lemon jones coco/LED

Back again after a break from social media!

 I am starting this diary just before I put the plants into flower I did have issues with the coco  getting too hot temps got to 37°C  suffered a lot of root rot so I tried to take cuttings and forgot to put them under my strip  lights left them under the LED and cooked them thankfully I didn't totally destroyed the plants so I invested in some CX horticulture Regen-A-Root  which worked wonders they are a picture of health I have 2 pink lemonaid and 1 lemon jones.  I also have 4 tangilope DNA genetics and 2 cotton candy cane seedlings and I'm about to pick up a cutting of ice bomb and candy unsure of breeders.  I am using spectrum king LED 300W and 400w in flowering as outside temps have dropped! I am feeding them with, coco nutrients The cuttings I'm picking up are potted  into Canna terra soil so they will be fed With guano kelp potash and worm castings with occasional feeds of ecothrive charge and biosys.  I will put pictures up later as my data is very low speak to you soon

Hi @mungbean79, good to see you at it again.

 

Like you previously have done, I am taking a break from social media as in grow dairies but I still have a flower tent full, 3 weeks from harvest and veg tent stocked ready to go in.

 

Nice to follow your thread along and you have some lovely healthy plants there to start with.

 

Good to see that you are using LED's........I seem to be doing good with them.......GPW, reliability and consistently is all I ever need and more.

Hi @I'm Sal good to hear from you! I love my led however I really want to try 315w cmh seen  and heard really good things about them. 

I will be putting the big ones into flower tonight! Putting up second tent to veg the seedlings and cuttings hopefully be able to put cuttings in flower tent in 3 weeks and put seedlings in flower 5 weeks time! The lemon jones I have already smells strong in veg so she'll be putting my filters to the test!

Got busy earlier after all the house chores gotta keep the misses sweet lol. Put the seedlings and cuttings into a 2x4 tent leaving the big plants in 4x4 and have put them into flower now hoping to move the 2 cuttings in their in about 3 weeks time. I was Thinking when the big ones are finished I'll move the others in but would be better off putting them in big tent and moving 2 cuttings into small tent to finish off! I'm looking forward to this one already!

@Cannabissapean Yea I know I know! I had issues with the big one severe root rot didn't think they'd make so I took cuttings off them to the extent there was nothing left! I was going to throw them! I put some seeds on incase the cuttings didn't root as it was my first time. I cooked the cuttings left them under my LED and fell asleep forgot about them! 

I will be putting 2 cuttings in with the big ones and flower 4 of 6 in this tent they are in 7 L pots give them short veg them flower them.  

Not ideal  but at least they will be flowered! I would love to do perpetual grows but I have to pack up every 6 months for house inspections

@Cannabissapean landlord! 😏 I have a place to own but need to sell it not in an ideal location and I can't as yet technically not mine just waiting on details being transferred and his contract to run out! When I say not an ideal location it's based on a row of flats for students studying to be dentists so may be some good gas and air parties lol. Plus the 3 week break is good to spend time with family. 

Years ago I used to flower 9-12 plants from seed in a 4x4 tent with no problems they were AK47 given 2 weeks veg in coco. Only issue was flavour suffered a little.

Been a week into 12/12 for the pink lemonaid and lemon jones the 3 of them have pretty much filled the tent they have stopped stretching up so hopefully see some flowers forming I have upped their feed to EC 1.4 may go 1.5 next week see if they wil take it! maybe able to squeeze 1 more in their but it would only be drowned so may not put anymore in this tent l. The other tent cuttings are doing well and growing fast tangilope and cotton candy cane seeds took a hit I changed my bottled water source and didn't test it! It has an EC 0 so I've started to up it with calmag to EC 3 before making the mix and they are now picking up I have spoke with a friend who is going to house 3 tangilope for me so I will squeeze 3 in this tent for flower they are getting a short veg so hopefully get away with it! I like this bottled water as after mak My the mix and thoroughly mixing for half hour and letting stand with airstones for 2-4 hours the ph is 5.97 and takes 5 drops of PH down to 5.8 and stays like it for 3 days

Day9 12/12 and stretch has slowed and first fruit formation is starting to show so I'm going to say day 1 of flower ( I look at it best to be a week over than cutting too short) this is the first time I see the plants react to the light before I put on flower I used to open tent lights out and see them fast asleep! Now in flower you can see them fast asleep soon as lights come on but after half hour the leaves are praying for the light after 10hrs light they are getting ready for sleep time.  Group photo is taken about 40 mins after lights on. I've got a sample bottle of terpenez as these are citrus strains I'm goinf to try it but a bit dubious about trying it on tangilope and candy cane and ice from the smell coming out of the unopened bottle smells like it will enhance the citrus smell but worried it will give say a Chem og a sweet citrus flavour instead of the gassy fuel. Would do side by side test but already making 3 different mixes is a chore in itself in the limited time I get to spend with them. Outside temps have dropped so in tent temp has levelled to 25c lights on and 20c night. Debating whether to mix hps with my led which will help raise the temps a little bit make temp difference between day and night a bit wider so may not be a good idea plus I've got a lot running off one circuit so don't want to over power it!

Thankyou @Jose.gh they had a rough start but pulled through beautifully if anything I think it has done them a favour 😂! They certainly have hit bloom the girls are lapping up the good and even after 24hrs of flower the hairs are coming thicker and faster love this bit feel like you've missed lots in 24hrs

Went to look in my tent yesterday safe to say they are flowering! When I was taking cuttings off them I was heavy handed and stripped nearly bare! However on one I left a bit of branch about 6" in 2 places they have gone soggy and floppy no doubt they will turn mouldy. I was wondering if I snipped them down to nearest joint and rubbed some sweat on them to help it heal would that work as sweat is a natural body healer or should I just ship it back and leave it.

When trimming cannabis, it is best to take branches off just above a node.  In other words, don't leave long stubs.  Long stubs will not survive, and they contain lots of water that could turn mushy or moldy.  They take longer to dry-out.

 

But don't cut too close to the node.  Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

 

If cut too close to the node and a pathogen gets into the cut, then in no time, the disease can enter the node.

 

If the stub is 1/4 to 1/2 inch long, then there is enough stem there to fight a pathogen before it gets to the node.  As well, it is short enough that it can die and dry-out rather quickly.  Once a stem is dried-out, then it acts as a sealant to the node and stops the travel of the pathogens.

@Cannabissapean it all goes back to almost discarding them these I should have tidied her up! It's my downfall laziness telling myself it'll be alright when I know it's not. 

I've taken it down now left a little stump where it's not as soggy nearly normal I've increased airflow down there for a few days too.

Day4 flower and they are very happy doubling up in size every day now the lemon jone is very strong smelling now a lemon sherbet type smell the pink lemonaid not so much but does have a nice finger rub off stem smell. They have been loving my feed I've increased EC to 1.5 where it will stay for a week maybe 2 and increased the PH to 6

Today I'm going to give them a top dress of ecothrive charge (insect frass) and ecothrive biosys microbe tea get those macro and micro nutrients topped up! I've also bought a bottle of terpenez to try out debating whether to start using it with my feeding schedule at week 3 at a low dose or just use it for the flush!

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.
