Small update since its day 21for most of the girls.

All is well except for three of them , they havent grown allot in lenght, but do have some internodes verry short .. they are like 1 inch tall lol micro plants ? Curious how they are gonna turn out. However there is some food news to , ive germinated six new kingskush seeds and three of them are in jiffys in the tent =) . ( one seedling seemed to have sprouted two roots from one seed . We shal call her the mutant.

All the otherplants are doing fine all between two and four internodes and not verry thirsty as i expected .

My humidifirer died ( rip) so i hang white pieces of cloth in my tents and spray every hour orso . I works pretty good think its about 50/60% .

I think thats it for now ill be back in two or three days when i will feed their ghs powderfeed and some rootstim .

Have a good one !

-UPDATE- Day 30 above ground.

Dat 30 above ground for most girls.

Feeding day gave them ghsc powederfeed, i always start whit 33% of advised dosage upped it to 70% today .

The girls look like shit to be honest and think ive got fungusgnats. See if i can make some pictures whit a microscoop

Amazed how the one of the smallest plants has the biggest roots but is small and pretty yellow , hope its just deficient of feeding and will turn green aggain in a few days.

Will spray them later on whit sprzit R that works agfainst all bugs past etc etc .

The good news is that the plants are showing sings of preflowering and the six new kingskushes which are 21 days younger are doing good potted thdm in 12l pots and lets see what they will do .

Humidity is still low deu to no h7midifier. Kn9w hwere i can get a good one heap let me know

I have found that placing two or three pots of water in the room outside the tent will help tremendously to raise the room's ambient rel. humidity, providing a base level of humidity for air entering the tent.  If you need higher humidity in the tent, then a further pot or two of water in the tent should do.

 

If you are using hanging towels to humidify the tent, you can save on the daily labor of personally wetting them by simply dangling the towels directly into the water-pots.  That way they are self-wetting.

 

For the slow-growing plants, try misting them with distilled water or filtered water every day or two.  That simulates rain, which promotes transpiration (basically the breathing part of metabolism of green leafy plants).  Increased or improved metabolism should increase growth. 

 

Also, double-check the run-off pH of each of your plants.  You may find that the slow-growers have a pH further from the proper range.  The optimal range for MJ-plants in soil fluctuates between 6,0 and 6,5.  For MJ-plants in hydro, fluctuations between 5,5 and 6,0 are optimal.

Happy New year fellow growers !

-Small Update- day 35 above.

ground checked up on the girls , and most seem to do better.

Kingo kushes are flowering for about one week , few of the big bangs go are still not in flower , won't be long tho .

The two plants which are stretching are going towards a meter in length, two days ago she was 74cm and now she is 90cm exact, and the rest is about 60-65cm , she holds some good grow hormone. But skinny .

Rest of the girls are nice short and full-bodied. I've switched from phone e to tablet for the pictures and quality is a bit better .

The new batch of seedlings I've transferred are all doing good , except for fungus gnats. Will mist later whith spruzit r .

The really small plants which are the same age as the rest are growing , and one of them is doing pretty good starting to look like a real plant now lol even though it's 35 days old she is a bit slower I guess, don't mind that since she can join the new batch which is 21 days younger but in the same tent .

Was planning to feed them today , but the dirt is still wet so 2morow will check aggain , and and take some pictures of the plants outside their tent.

For those who are wondering what the white clothes In the tent are, I use them to get hummidity up ,need to buy a new humidifier but draining these in buckets and giving them a good wring does the trick pretty well

Thanx for the advise didn't see your reply till now, but I really appreciate the advise! Have always had one bucket outside the tent but placed a few more and indeed it did good, I always mist whit water but might do it more frequently.

And I will most surtenly try the self dripping to moit up the clothes , that's pretty smart thanx again!

We were obviously writing and posting at the same time.

 

By the way, not self-dripping, rather self-wicking...

Maybe you already know this or maybe you have already seen these charts, but for those who are following this thread who havent yet seen this, you can find many charts online that describe the optimal pH for MJ-plants. 

 

Here is one of them I found especially informative:

 

http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.growweedeasy.com%2Fsites%2Fgrowweedeasy.com%2Ffiles%2FpH-nutrient-deficiency%2Fhydroponics-ph-chart-marijuana.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.growweedeasy.com%2Fph&h=828&w=828&tbnid=gGe6Wl_wzxKr3M%3A&docid=8XipfuBj79JWtM&hl=de&ei=0HeGVvjgBoL5ygOY8IqIAg&tbm=isch&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=1122&page=1&start=0&ndsp=23&ved=0ahUKEwj4iM2N1YjKAhWCvHIKHRi4AiEQrQMIKjAE

 

If it doesn't function as a link, then just copy and paste it into your URL to see the webpage. 

Or just search for "pH chart for marijuana", and there will be many links available to you.

-Small Update day 38 above ground-

The girls are still looking bad , I don't water them enough I've noticed.

I will be checkingking daily who needs water and who doesn't, never had such big difference in drinking behaviour whith clones .

Monday when my neutralizer arrives I wil take the girls out and do a small trimming session and remove the small bottom leaves , some are touching the dirt.

Still have some gnats which cause the yellow leaves , can't be a nutrient deficiency the powderfeed they recieve is fully doses.

The tallest in bloom is 99cm and the smallest in bloom a stunning 24cm lol

Small Update, day 46 above ground .

I'll start whit the bad news .still have gnats not so many as before .

Some good news I've decided to take down one of the small plants since all trichomes where fully milky and a bit of amber on some just after 46 days which is a record for me the rest of the plant will follow soon there's a difference of 13 days between the first answer second batch . And 21 days between the 1st and 3rd batch .

Flowering is going pretty well and buds get thicker by the day the younger plants are getting bigger everyday aswel and are in 2nd week of flowering, and that just after 23 days !! Next batch of kings kushes I will monitor more close,your to see exactly after how many days the show sings of flowering , my said she saw sings after 7 days above ground ..... my wife has a better green thumb then me before we had kids she outgrew me every time in weight

Found out ive been counting the days wrong. Seeds popped up above ground on nov 25th 8weeks ago 61 days . Almost harvest time for the oldes batch . Had to raise the lights since some girls where showing sings of overheating leaves curlin up inwards. Some trichomes are showing a bit of amber. Ill check in 3days aggain. When the flor is dry and they have drank all their water. Ill stop feeding the the the older plants and seperate them from the rest in the tent . Since the seeds germinated abd there is a difference of 9 and 13 days between the plants 21 days after that i planted 6 more .

The plans look pretty bad imo and whit 2 kids i havent got time to do 20 30 seeds and probably will go back to clones 30 and have 5 seeds in the same tent to sharpen my skills . Im really wondering what my yield is gonna be my last yield was 785gr under 1000hps . Ive switched to 1200hps and am curious af !!,

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.
