Looking good, my those plants are bushy :)

Thanks for the tip. By coincidence, I think that they are made not from from where I live, my local growshop stocks them. The trouble I have at the moment is, the only space I have to erect such a tent is under a pitched roof and I couldn't find any secret jardin tents that fit. I did find these though http://green-qube.com. I hope they work as well. Cheers.

That link didnt work but i google searched the name of the tents and got it that way. yeah those tents look nice and hardy. whats the price range on those? i know on ebay you can find some really cheap ones. just make sure you dont get ripped off :D theres alot of cheap fakes out there ;)

happy highs bro

Oops yeah sorry, a "." found it's way into the link. I edited the post. Thanks for taking the time to check it out. I found the Roof Qube's here - http://www.chrissiesgarden.co.uk/roof-qube-86-c.asp

seem to cost 165GBP for a small one (120x120) and 275GBP for large one (120x240) plus shipping. I think the small one would fit in my space :) Cheers, and continued good luck with the grow!

All systems still set to full speed here!! :) Amazing growth man!! I noticed though that you have your pH set to 6.2, from what I know for hydro grows in general, unless you are growing a sativa, it is not normally recommended to go higher than 6.0, and that is towards the end of the grow. If you are growing in soil then 6.2 would maybe be preferred at this stage but not for hydro. Just my thoughts and tryin to help :)

Peace

ALRIGHT HUNTERS!!

Im back again guys bring good news with me

:)

So i have seen a lot happen in the tent in the last week, the group of ten Sweet Mangos Autos has split into two groups

One being the tall bushy girls and then the smaller compact girls ill try to show it in the pictures and ill do the same as i did last time and

split them into groups of photos with some information below them

:)

I Also made a decision on what i would be doing with the LED light and so far its back up in the tent with the 400w and the 250w hps lamps

I might try veg my mothers under some weaker lights because the girls seem to be loving the led light and the plants that directly under it seem to "taco" there leafs like there enjoying it BIG TIME!

:D

Anyway guys! to the PICTURES!!

gallery_22080_1018_156307.jpg

gallery_22080_1018_135735.jpg

So In the first two pictures guys you will see how big the roots have gotten in the last 27 days, now what i wanted to show you in the 2 picture of the roots is how much water i have left in the bucket now the reason its so low is i have been taking a page out of Franco's and Arjan's books and letting the plants water levels get really low so that the roots get lots of oxygen to them. The dry-wet-dry-wet cycle in the buckets is what maintain the plant metabolism at optimal levels. And after Ive let them dry and changed the res they seem to explode in that next 24h of growth.

In the last pictures you will see one of the girl side branching has gone a little crazy, it seems my tucking of fan leafs has really paid off because shes looking now like she has 2 apical heads ( main colas) , most of the side branching on the other girls is pretty nice but not as nice as this girl

:) had a few people asking if i topped them. last pic you will see how wide they are almost reaching 1 meter in width.

gallery_22080_1018_96840.jpg

gallery_22080_1018_146661.jpg

In the last pictures guys you will see the first of the two groups of sized mangos i have. this group being the taller bushy ones theres 6 in total there and they all are pretty uniform with nice tall side branching there all about the same height being around 55cm each not including pots. i wouldnt call these sativa phenos because there still very bushy and the fan leaves are quite fat on some of them but they really have a nice mixtures of both genes

:)

gallery_22080_1018_100374.jpg

gallery_22080_1018_143290.jpg

Now clearly guys this is the other bunch of girls i was talking about they are a bit smaller then the other 6 i showed in the earlier pictures its almost like they havent started stretching yet but its hard to say because they have started shooting pistils, maybe these girls are bound to small and compact well shall just have to wait untill the next few updates

:)

i love surprises!!

Now as the same as the last update the last few pictures are just of the girls sitting and chilling in there home

ive tried to create a stadium effect having the taller girls on the outer sides smaller ones in the middle:)

thanks for your time hunters it was a biiiiiig update so i appreciate that you took the time to read it

:)

Ph @ 6.2 PPM 700-800 ec 1.1- 1.3

Thanks for the kind words buddy :) yeah i was wondering if that was maybe a bit too high too early, but they have been on there a week now and seem like a very " hardy " strain if they do start to show signs of stress from it i will lower buddy i may even just lower half the group a little just to see if there is any change. But great info buddy and thanks for " watching my back " :D

Cheers thanks again smokey :)

Hey John :)

Your SM's are looking great! Don't worry about the size, they won't get too big :) You will love this strain once she starts to bud-out :) There's some taller phenos but not too tall :)

Have a good grow man :)

Hello Hunters!!

So its been a few days since the last update on the girls and man has a lot happened, I have a lot of pictures for you guys so much that ill post them in groups and

have a brief description of the pictures

:) its easier that way.

As i was told by a few members all the auto girls showed me there lady bits on the 21st day of veg! ( YAAAY!! )

so after that it was time to switch the girls into flower mode so i adjusted the light schedule to 12/12 and added the 250hps into the tent, so now the lights

in there are 400w hps,250w hps. At the moment i havent got space on the roof to add in the LED light & it might be going into use to grow some mother plants for

the next grow after these girls so i will have to decided that today or tomorrow what i do with it.

Now Hunters!! to the pictures!!!

gallery_22080_1018_140608.jpg

Alright so in the first two pictures you will see how big the main stem is getting on these girls thats a AA battery in the first pictures beside the stem then in the next picture i placed it behind it. you can just make it out if you look hard enough.

Then in the pictures under that you will see how much the roots have grown & also what it looks like when i take them out of the pots.

gallery_22080_1018_113374.jpg

Now in this bunch of pictures guys there are the same 3 plants i showed you in the last picture update. You can really see how much they have grown in just 4 days! this strain is really amazing ( iknow ive said it a lot ) but they really are growing so so fast! cant wait to see them buds! the smell is getting very strong in the tent and even if i leave the tent open for 5 mins the room is full of the plants aroma, smells great!

What you will see here guys is i have split the group into two different sizes with the bigger looking girls to one side and the small girls to the other side first two pictures are the taller bigger girls last 2 are the smaller ones

:)

AND NOW FOR THE FINALE!!!

Heres all the girls sitting and chilling in there home

;)

Thanks Mr X!

My level of growing is no where near yours!! so that means alot to me

:)

Alright Hunters! Update time !!

Well what an update i have for you guys , these seeds and nutrients just keep amazing me everyday the growth I've seen in the last 32 days is incredible

Just 14 days ago these girls were about 20cm tall they are now giants @ 125cm tall with amazing side branching, even the runt of the bunch has shot up

and is no longer the runt anymore. What can i say.... AMAZING JOB guys @ GHSC!! i wont be trying any other nutrients after this thats for sure

;)

So hunters the girls in the tent have been drinking a lot and stretching a lot too!.

I think they are finally coming to the end of there stretch it seems to have slowed down in the last day and they have started to produce more and more pistils now.

It was really a good idea that i flipped to 12/12 when i did because im pushing it for space now.

The girls are starting to get a nice root ball so i have pushed up the PPM to 950 with no problems.

Today was res change for the 4 slightly small girls so the pictures i have of the plants out of the tent are the smaller ones

;)

Bigger plants res change is in a few days so i will update with pictures of them then, they are HUGE!

:)

Anyway guys enough of the reading lets get to the pictures!

Hey Hunters! Update time!

What a battle i have had with these girls in the last week , they have been kicking my ass ( in a good way! )

It looks like im going to have a pretty sativa Pheno'ish group on my hands! now that they have started to show there flowering leafs im seeing lots of nice and skinny ones

:)

also they have really shot up like every day growing a inch or two maybe even more!

They have grown so much in the last few days that i have run out of space !! rooftop wise, with a few girls growing past my lights haha ( INSANE!! )

I tried tying them down but they just wanted to grow and grow... i guess they showed me who's the real boss in the end

:D

I never thought that autos could grow this big & boy was i wrong.

Thankfully i had a easy solution, well semi easy.......

Flip my tent back upright

The downside to doing this, about 3hrs of moving things around and also losing space in width, but the upside being gaining that much needed height i really needed

So i began the move!, heres a few pictures of what it looked like before i moved them/during ( was getting a bit crammed )

3hrs later......After i pulled everything out of the tent & took apart a loft bed that was over top of the tent,then i flipped the tent upwards and then it was time to put the girls back in

;)

and im mixing 8g of Powder feeding with 8L of ph 6.2 water

;)

Enjoy guys!!

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.
