Ice Dream - Outdoor Grow

46 posts in this topic

Day 1:

Hey Guys & Girls, time to start a new Ice Dream journal with the last seven test seeds I have from GHSC.

If you've seen my previous grow you'll know they were indoors under 2 x 120 watt LED panels, these are going outdoor in the ground guerilla grow.

I put them in overnight soak on Sunday evening, put in Root Riot germination cubes on Monday, first three seeds popped surface Wednesday and three more today, just one left to pop up and we have 100% germination rate yet again from GHSC.

The three in terracotta colour pots were up yesterday and the black pots today, they are now sitting on the outside of my open tent just catching the rays on the outskirts from my LED panels. They will go in greenhouse tonight, back under LED tomorrow and then they should be strong enough to stay in greenhouse overnight thereafter.

Using greenhouse because I want them to get natural light cycle as they are going outside want to keep sunlight hours consistent with mother natures plan, I'll plant them out in about three weeks.

That's it Hunters,

Toaor

Day 19:

Hey Guys & Girls, the seedlings are doing well, one got knocked over by my cat but was put back within a few hours, she's a little smaller than the other five.

Not a lot else to say as I've not fed them any nutes just plain tap water up to now pH 7.2-7.4

Day 33:

Hi Guys & Girls, hope all is well with you as you read this journal update.

My plants are now pretty much ready to go out but the weather here for the last couple of weeks has been shit windy, rainy, floods so decided to hang onto them for a little while longer, hopefully get them in their spots end of this week.

Five plants are good but I have one small one that the cat knocked over early days so I think it may have broken tap root coz she ain't caught up anywhere near what the other five are, much shorter, only got tiny leaves so may just bin her she won't come to much don't think.

Here's the pics.

Best wishes one and all,

Toaor

Great looking plants , id say leave her and see what happens , im in exactly the same boat at the moment where i damaged a SLH on replant. Just leaving her for now to see if she repairs herself , normally they very hardy and the usual saying "Its just a weed" , good luck and let us know if she catches up.

Day 36:

Hi Guys & Girls,

Something has been having a free munch on one of my Ice Dreams, bastard !

Presumably a slug or snail has squirmed its way up the side panel of greenhouse about 4 feet and just nibbled what it could from it's position fortunately it's not too bad and she'll recover I'm sure.

The rest have been left alone and the one that my cat knocked over has started to perk up a bit and has some new growth.

I've just taken them out of greenhouse and will leave them out tonight and tomorrow to get used to conditions outside before I go put them in the ground for the summer.

Here's the pics.

Day 44:

Hi Guys & Girls,

Managed to get the girls out into their spots for the summer, it was around 8pm so getting dark so pictures aren't brilliant as didn't want flash to be seen by anyone, I put the five established plants in and left the small one for now till it's grown a bit more.

I won't go back to them for at least a week or two, give them a chance to bed in to the ground, I used hormone rooting powder in the holes before I put plants in so hopefully that will help.

I also threw slug pellets all around as you can see in pics the little blue bits, just have to hope the rabbits and the like don't eat them too but nothing I can do about that unless I put wire around them, I only lost one plant last year animals and one to mould in top stem.

Here's the pics of my baby girls.

Here's the pics of them in their new spots, they've now been in one week tomorrow but I've not been back to them and we've had loads of rain every day since, we've had some sunshine too so they'll either have bedded in nicely or they'll be drowned, lol.

I'll try to go out this weekend to check on them but no promises, if I do I'll stick in some of those nutrient sticks, they are not overly strong N8.5%, P1.8%, K1% as they are competing with roots already established in the ground where they are once they're nicely established i will use GHSC Indica Nutrients.

All the best,

Toaor

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.
