    Hello Is it too late to start to participate? I have a White Rhino grow diary on this forum, please check out my old started threads, it was 7 years ago, my first grow back then under a 250 HID. I love this strain and i would love to grow it again! Nowadays i grow under 400W, i will have 4 pots of 20 liters each if i still can be selected to participate. Please let me know if i can enter the contest. Thanks! P.S. I attached some pictures with my White Rhino i grew back then. In the first picture the W.R. is on the left, the right sided plant is an A.M.S. n all the rest of the pictures is the White Rhino.

    Nebula is 12.5kg so still a little ways to go before watering/feeding. After a bit of defoliation on the plants, I guess they'll be using less water as well as not being able to transpire as much. Was worried about this set of 'balls' on Nebula below: Below's a Sensi Star bud forming: Dutch Dragon below: A scene with the tall Jacky White in the background, and Sensi Star & DD front and right respectively:

    Hi All. This is my 3rd grow and boy have I come a long way. Im still not a pro, but I have learned alot. My second grow was unsuccessful because of my lack of experience in growing in promix coco coir. Heat also being an issue. Anyways back to the Velvet Bud grow.... Apparently Velvet bud is a descendent of Purple bud. Velvet bud is produced by Seedsman. I didn't pick this strain. It was given to me because of a order blunder from the local outlet...so this is how I ended up with it. My set up is: 800mm x 800mm x 1250mm grow tent 400w MH/HPS 400w digital ballast 100mm centrifugal extractor fan 4 x 20L pots Soil medium : promix coco coir perlite mix 50/50 Pots lined with filter floss Hydroponics system using normal 3 part nutrients system. Grow nutes Micro nutes and Bloom nutes by EHG. Seedling stage: 3 out of 5 seeds germinated. Seedlings where ready for transplanting into the bigger pots after about 2 weeks. Used a humidity dome to keep the fellows warms as temps where still cool. I felt that the seedlings responded well to a temp of 24 celcius. 15% nutes of bloom grow and micro. Two seedlings flourished while the 3 guys lagged behind a bit. Unfortunately no pics of the seedling stage. Vegative stage: Once these guys got into the bigger pots they just took off. Ramping up the nutes gradually to 90 % of the recommended dosage with Grow, Micro and CalMag( a definite must for growing in coco coir). I only topped these plants once, then after a few days I LST the 4 main branches by pulling them down with pipe cleaners. The above picture is after 3 weeks of vegging since I put the seedlings into these pots. Good vigorous growth for Velvet Bud! I ended up using an auto pot for one on the right. I also added an airstone and pump. You can clearly see the difference! Im not doing any testing. Im just following the schedule on the nutrient bottle but dosing slightly less and seeing how the plants respond. I add a table spoon of CalMag to every 10L of normal tap water. 18/6 light schedule with MH globe. Temps where a little low so I added a temp sensor switch to my extractor fan. When the light comes on it also acts as a heater, so when the temp got to 25 celcius the extractor fan would come on and cool the tent and plants down with cool air from the outside. Above is a picture of the temperature controller. The sensor is in the tent, it also has a heating as well as a cooling option. This controller really helps with keeping a constant temperature. The above pic is at 4 weeks veg. Nice lush vigorous growth.Plant is looking really bushy and healthy. Velvet bud is responding well to the nutrients. Grow 20ml/10l, Micro 10ml/10l and Tblspn CalMag. Normal tap water with no testing. You're probably wondering what that piece of acrylic is for....well its a budget way to replicate a ventilated hood. I'm not using the temp controller anymore as the outside temps have risen so now I have the extractor fan running constantly. I had a piece of perspex(acrylic) clear cut to fit the tent perfectly. I used a holesaw to cut holes into the acrylic glass directly under where the globe would be. I did this because when the extractor fan creates the negative air pressure inside the tent, its will pull the tent tight around the edges of the acrylic and force the cool air from the bottom compartment into the above compartment directly over the globe therefore also keeping the globe cool and keeping my plants cool. Its also adjustable. I also have been using a humidifier on and off. I usually only use it weather depending. During this time I also took six clones. I used a rooting hormone and rockwool cubes all six clones rooted after 10 days. Velvet Bud takes good clones!!! I gave 4 away (good karma) and added 2 clones to a fourth pot. I had to leave for a month and had to ask very nicely if she would take care of them. I had to mod the grow to make it as easy as possible for her maintain. So I bought a tray to fit the tent and ripped out the single auto valve I had, stuck it in the center of the tray, chucked the plants in, filled the tray with hydroton balls, made a watering schedule and nutrient mix levels( 20ml/10l bloom 10ml/10l micro 1/2 Tblspn CalMag) 10l and Mondays and 10l on Thursdays and had to leave for a month wondering if my girlfriend would take good care of my babies........ Whoo hooo!!! So after a month of flowering I return to this!!! Velvet Bud is looking so good and really is starting to smell so good. Nice sweet fruity smell ! My girlfriend did good!!! Box of chocolates for her!! I was mostly impressed with the two clones I had planted into the fourth pot front right in the picture. Heads as big as the rest and looking super healthy with fat nugs forming on the stems. Week 6 of flowering and Velvet Buds are swelling up and are just smelling irresistible!! Another wider pic at 6 weeks. Tents is so full!! 😁 The above pic is at 9 weeks flower. Buds are full of trichomes and have been flushing. Trichomes are not completely cloudy though so will defs have to go for another week. 9 weeks.... Buds are so fat they are starting to lean on each other with only the tent sides holding them up! Thats all for today folks.....will continue with this grow story once I have harvested. Its just about ready. Till then..chow

    Hi @slimjim, yes I thought about that (one cancelling out/killing the other) but thought I'd give it a go. On researching the beneficial bacteria, they seem to like a ph of 7-7.2. I was worried about the high ph when I mixed with 5.0 (came to 7.79) so ph down'd it to 4.3 before Enhancer which got it up to 6.25. Now thinking should have simply follow the instructions (and will from now on) as 6.25 might not be enough in hindsight. On the flip side, I've also read that HP (and the unstable oxygen molecule in it) kills mostly 'anaerobic' bacterium (oxygen hating bacterium) but that it aids the 'aerobic' bacterium (oxygen loving bacterium) of which a lot are beneficial. I think Trichoderma are aerobic and Bacillus not sure, some site say aerobic, some say it's now classed as anaerobic [see 1 below]. Harvest day is ~ 6 weeks away for my other grow, so will be popping the White Rhino beans in a week or so.

" " @Jose.gh, what's your take on using Hydrogen Peroxide along side Enhancer?

    Hello lovely people, I was just wondering how much weed does it usually take for you to get high? Personally for me, it takes around half a gram, or less, of some high quality cannabis before I start feeling a buzz. It would be useful for me if you were to describe how much of the amount, quality, and also if you are a frequent or occasional user. Any additional information that you could offer would be greatly appreciated as I am planning on starting a business here in the United States. Thanks again forum!

    Hi @LedCherryBerry, Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for micro bananas. I've not had any males either yet (finger crossed) so don't have any answers I'm sorry. But if someone attacked my balls, .....

    Indeed. "Balls" tend to look much more like micro bananas. No irony in that. It seems your preflowers developed into "full" flowers. I have a question though. Since i never had a male (luckily for some), i was wondering if removing the "balls" from an impollinated plant would stress the plant even more to produce, indeed, even more seeds. Like the reaction you get when you don't "ninja-attack" the spider mites, and they go haywire and destroy your crop. I mean, if you spot "balls" and remove them, will the plant go haywire, thinking of an attack to its reproductive system, and produce double seeds? Anyway, your "babies" have gone crazy! Look at em, so healthy and thick! Keep up the great work Shaggy!

    "hello dear lovers of the holy plant.Here are some photos of the white rhino rushing their last days in the coffee glasses. As you can see in the photos there are 2 of the small ones that demonstrate a more sativa phenotype than their sisters. Greetings from my corner." Sativa Rhino - lovely :-) Good Luck!

    Weigh in's last night and I was worried they were getting too dry (< 12kg) so gave them a small drink/feed with (I could not resist) some GHF Enhancer. Blimey it's a funny colour! ph'd 5l RO to 5.0 then added 5g of Enhancer and mixed for 5 mins. 7.78ph afterwards. GULP! Gave them a dose as below (plants current dry weights plus when Enhancer I gave) : DD 10.9kg +1.2l = 12.1kg Nebula 13.7kg +0.6l = 14.3kg JW 11.5kg +1.2l= 12.7kg IC 12.2kg +0.5l = 12.7kg SS 11.5kg +1.2l = 12.7kg Fed this morning as follows (12ml Shogun Hydrobloom A & B [third dose]; 12ml PK Warrior [full dose]; 12ml CalMag [full dose]; 3ml 12% Hydrogen Peroxide, @ 23°C) DD 11.2kg dry weigh; 12l @ 6.04ph of 755ppm 22.2c and 6ml-12%HP in, 6.70ph 980ppm 20.3°C - ph a little high, ppm a tad high Nebula tomorrow or Wednesday JW 12.1kg 12l 6.10ph 728ppm 23.8c 3ml-12%HP in, 6.21ph 881ppm 20.8°C 2.2l out - OK IC 12.2kg 12l 5.92ph 790ppm 23.8c 3ml-12%HP in, 6.77ph 824ppm 20.6°C 2.1l out - ph a little high SS 12.2kg 12l 6.12ph 830ppm 24.2c 3ml-12%HP in, 6.44ph 955ppm 20.3c°C - OK I did quite a bit of defoliation over the last three days, so now there is lots of air in the middle of the plants (fan leaves in the middle removed) and light can get to the buds better. Question for the board: which is the better time to defoliate; when the plant is dry (nearing watering time) or when the plant is wet (just after watering)? Pics after I've walked the cats. DD drinks like a fish.

    Well yeah it probably had some deficiencies on the way but it must have been a while already, did you feed them a bit during the grow? PH could have been a bit off, or salt blocking the nutes in the pots, try to give them a big amount of water and check the PH of the Runing off water to know how your soil is, if the soil is good then its on the food side probably. Good luck
