With the onset of winter, and the low temperature, I am happy to start a new indoor crop, a winter crop. My intention is to make a 100% Natural culture, 100% BIO. So .... What better occasion to try the BIO nutrients from Green House Feeding?
In this crop I will use the new BIO nutrients from Green House Feeding (coming soon). It will be great to evaluate results personally. If you want to see how they work, or have any questions, maybe I can help solve it
This time I decided to use cuttings, instead of seeds. My intention is to grow a lot, before beginning the flowering. Maybe three or four weeks under 400w / 600w metal halide. Then, maybe the flowering will begin on the middle of January (if all goes well).
It is an indoor of 1.2m2
With light 250w / 400w / 600w and 600w SL
Extraction and intraction system of air
Substrate: soil - Normal soil / A little coconut fiber
Nutrients: Green House BIO Feeding
Containers: Smart Pot 12 Liters / 3 Gallons
Ok, it's the first time thats I use Smart Pot containers, so you should have patience haha
First of all, I want to put a little armalite / arlite (volcanic rock) on the bottom. This is to improve drainage, just put it a little.
Actually, how is the first time thats I use this type of container .... I want to see the difference, So I add a classic container 12 liter / 3 gallon.
I put some earth, about halfway. And then I add some Green House Feeding BIO GROW.
According to the indications, 3gr / liter of BIO GROW should be used, for a standard culture of one month and a half, or two months of duration. I start with cuttings, so the growth period is only a few weeks or a month. I Use only half of the recommended dose, use 1.5 gr / liter.
Once I added BIO GROW, I put more soil and put it all together. Be careful not to move the volcanic rock from the bottom. I try to make a good mix.
Also I add a big handful of coconut fiber to each pot. I like to mix it up, to make it a little more fluffy, and keep the moisture better.
Now only the transplant is left. This part is boring and dirty, you have to be careful with the delicate roots of the cuttings.
When the transplant is finished, I water the pots with water. Only water with PH set to 6.2 (about 1 liter per pot).
Once finished, I like to add a bit of volcanic rock / arlite, on top. In this way I can retain moisture better, the soil does not dry out easily.
At the moment, I will use 400w. only. In a few days, maybe 600w.
The volcanic rock / arlite, has a horrible ph. You have to soak for several days, with a regulated pH (a bit acid). So that they stabilize. Always, before use.
For now .... this is it
