Sweet Mango Autos

17 posts in this topic

Its time for a new grow journal for this run of 4 Sweet Mango autos.

 

I will veg the plants for a month at 18/6 and FIM each plant as soon as they hit the 5th node, then once they are a month old I will flip the timer

to 12/12 and get them flowering.

 

Here is the info about the grow kit and nutrients I will be using.

 

Tent

Mars Hydro 70cm X 70cm X 160cm

 

Grow Light

Mars II 400 LED

The grow light is the equivalent to a 250W HPS and the lamp was brand new at Crismus, this is its first proper run.

 

Strain

4 X Sweet Mango auto flower = Green House Seeds

 

Growing Medium

BioBizz All Mix

 

Pots

Root Pouch fibre pots 12 litre

I opened the packaging and put the Sweet Mango auto beans in some spring water in a little plastic container to soak for 24 hours.

All four of the Sweet Mango beans have sunk to the bottom of the little plastic container.

 

Time to place them on damp kitchen roll and place them in a drawer in the dark.

A couple of days later and all of the Sweet Mango beans have germinated and they are now ready to put into the RootIt plugs.

 

I cut four RootIt plugs off the plastic tray and cut the plastic to separate them so they are sat in their own little pot.

 

Then I very carefully popped a germinated Sweet Mango bean into the hole in each of the RootIt plugs and gave them 5ml of spring water.

 

Then I placed them on a plastic plant pot saucer and put them into the grow tent and I lowered the lamp to 18 inches above the little pots.

I am giving the Sweet Mango seedlings 5ml of spring water 4 times per day to keep them nice and damp, and at night when I crash out I switch off the fan so they do not dry out over night, then I switch it back on in the morning when I give them a little drink.

 

One of the seedlings has managed to cast off its shell casing and its leaves are nice and green, one down 3 to go.

Two of the Sweet Mango seedlings have now cast their seed shells and their leaves are nice and green.

 

Still giving them 5ml of spring water 4 times per day to keep them nice and damp.

 

With the two seedlings that have not cast their seed shells they were struggling to get their root into the plug, so I very carefully prized open the plug and then repositioned the seedling so the plug gripped the root and the next day they were both standing up.

The last 2 of the Sweet Mango seedlings to cast their seed shells are now well settled and their tap roots are poking out the bottom of the little plastic pots holding the RootIt plugs.

 

The first two of the seedlings that cast their seed shells have plenty of roots now, so I will let them go a couple more days and then plant them in some dirt in 12 litre Root Pouch fibre pots.

 

I am still giving them 5ml of spring water 4 times per day to keep them nice and damp.

Today it is time to plant all of the Sweet Mango seedlings into dirt in their final pots, I filled the pots with BioBizz All Mix a couple of days ago and they have been sitting in the shed ready to go, I took the fibre pots to the grow tent and I placed a big table spoon of the Plant Magic Old Timer Organic Granules on the dirt in the centre of the pots.

 

I then used the handle of the table spoon to mix the granules into the dirt thoroughly a bit deeper than the depth of the RootIt plugs then I made a hole and then I removed each seedling in its RootIt plug from the little plastic pot and then I planted each of the seedlings.

 

Then I put them into the grow tent in their fibre pots and gave them all about 80ml if spring water.

All of the Sweet Mango seedlings appear to be doing OK and settling into the fibre pots and dirt nicely.

 

The two that cast their seed shells last look to be starting to catch up to the other two growth wise.

The Sweet Mango seedlings are all doing OK and seem to be happy in their Root Pouches.

 

The 2 smaller seedlings I am watering every evening I am giving them about 60ml of water each, which I am slowly increasing to meet their demand.

 

The 2 larger seedlings I am watering every two days now, and last night I gave them their first feed of a mild solution of Plant Magic Old Timer Soil Grow and the Plant Magic Root Stimulant as well, I gave them about 150ml each, next time I will only give them water.

 

Here are some images I took yesterday afternoon.

The 2 smaller seedlings are certainly perking up I should be able to water them every two days in the next few days then I can start to give them a

mild feed as well once they have a few more leaves.

 

The two larger seedlings will soon be ready to FIM they are about the 4th node now.

 

I will update the journal next week when there is something to look at, unless something interesting happens in between times.

Hi Ganja XL

Thanks for the kind words man.

Yeah the root pouches are awsome well worth trying the plants will love them and your dirt will dry out nicely making watering and feeding easier.

The 4 young Sweet Mango plants are all growing nicely and enjoying the new LED lamp the nodes are noce and tight.

They are all around 4 or 5 nodes now so last night I decided it was time to FIM them all to break their apical tendency.

The two slightly smaller plants are now being watered every 2 days now at the same time as the other 2 plants.

Tonight I will give the smaller 2 plants their first feed and for the other 2 plants it will be their second feed.

I love these root pouches the root system is a lot healthier and the dirt dries out nicely too, I am also loving the Old Timer range of nutrients this will be my second run using the full range of organic nutrients and additives, the PK boost is great 3 days after the first feed using it the buds were visibly fatter.

I am looking forwards to testing the GHS powder feed with the Sweet Valley Kush both inside and outside.

Time to update the grow journal with a bit of news about progress.

The 4 Sweet Mango autos are doing great and growing nicely and since I FIMed them last Wednesday they have just carried on regardless.

Last night I gave them all a drink of water, the 2 larger ones got about 200ml each and the smaller 2 got about 100ml each, by Monday night the dirt will be nice and dry and they will be ready for a drink and their next feed.

Here are some images from last night.

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.
