My Second Grow - autumn early winter harvest

7 posts in this topic

Grow 2  - April May June harvest ( Australian mid autumn/ early winter)

 

Days should be 23 -25 range. Evenings 14c , and cooling off. At night the girls will go underneath on their "grasshound buses ( just old free bbqs without the bbq), this time i added some screen to help with the winds and other things. I am excited this time , and a bit nervous as usual with germination.  This time a great range of strains

 

1. Greenhouse Seeds - Super lemon Haze (auto )

2. Greenhouse Seeds -  Exodus Cheese (auto )

3. Fast Buds - Girl Scout Cookies (auto )

4. Barney Farms - Pineapple Express (auto)

5. Dutch Passions - Charlottes's Angel (auto)

 

Soil

 

Searles advanced potting mix,  same as last time but plant to maybe try a different soil next time. I am not sure but i am concerned if too much fertilizer in it, but it is controlled release.  The link is the soil information

Searles Potting mix advanced

from the website in short

50% more fertiliser* – Contains 12 months fertiliser which delivers essential plant nutrients for sustained healthy plant growth

50% more wetting agent* – Delivers better absorption, retention and distribution of moisture throughout the mix so the entire root system benefits from watering and feeding for up to 12 months

Rapid plant response with Searles Flourish® soluble plant food

Excellent water and nutrient retention and release from water crystals

 Boosted with Potash – For better blooms, fruit and disease resistance

 Advanced formulation potting media – For outstanding indoor and outdoor results

 Performance maximising ingredients – Zeolite, Rock Minerals, Activated Carbon and Biostimulants

 

Perlite for better drainage. Pots all have extra holes drilled at the bottom also. I am thinking since cooler time of year more perlite, as during summer the girls would take up more water i would expect in the heat.

 

Seed Raising mix to put in center of final pots ( 2 hand scoop in centre of mix)

 

Containers

 

14L for the black,  20L for the tera coloured ones, and white paint bucket

 

For autos is 14L good?

Transportation to moved girls underneath at night

Germination -  April 8th - Monday

 

Get the seeds from the fridge, sit out a little at room temperature and put in separate glasses (labelled) then paper in opened plastic bags in a dark spot to sprout.

 

Once they sprout directly into the main pot with a little seed raising mix in the center.

Update:

This week the weather is not best to start is cloudy at times, and possible showers.

 

Around 16 hours in water, Exodus Cheese had cracked her shell, and other seedlings dropped when tapped. Now they are in Paper towels, under my speakers, its allows air flow and is dark when closed - around 21c now around 23

 

bit late to make up soil now,  do it in the morning, i have for the centre of main pot , small  7.5cm x 10cm pots, i will add potting mix and remove  small pot then place seedlings in the centre

First to show leaves are the Greenhouse girls Exodus Cheese and Super Lemon Haze.

I got help from another forum, about using dvd cases to fix the curling of the roots.

Currently the girls are undercover from the rain but have been misted and watered , since i had them in full sun this morning

Should i start bloom nutrients yet?  Super Lemon Haze, her white pistels look more developed than the others

 

Here locally i can get Canna 13/14 or Bio Flores for bloom stage

Wow excellent beauties.

 

For the Free-99 route find some rabbit manure and aerate it in water with a cheap aquarium pump (almost free, $10usd). Composted chicken manure for huge and safe phosphorous boost. Add some honey and gypsum to the rabbit tea for real flower boosting effects, flavor and size

i have been growing the super lemons for the last 4 years in a row and the can handle the nutrients quit well ,canna 13/14 seems like the nutrient whe call pk13/14 over here in holland and we only use this at the end as a hardener ,so i don't know it's the same but be careful .if i had to make the choice i will definitely will go with the bio flores ,  and normally you save the 13/14 for week 6 building up till week 9 .

 

good growing and i always had manny and very big buds from the slh and a very nice smoke ,lemony and earthy ,good luck to you 

 

note  !! don't know if auto's react the seem as feminised seeds on the nutrients off course

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.
