*COMPLETE* White strawberry Skunk (RIP) + Damnesia

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Sorry got a late start on the journal. The last two months or so was a bit crazy and had some issues to deal with but back now and hopefully all smooth sailing from here.

I managed to swap some seeds with Kali so am doing one of each for this journal. I have put the specs of the tent on the pics and will try and put enough info on the pics so its nice and easy to read.

Had some problems with germinating a couple of WS and finally got one to pop but it seems like a slow starter aswell. Not sure if anyone else has had slow growth with these.

Okay so soaked the babies for 24 hours and the had them in a biltong maker (pic below) until the first fan leaves appeared. That was about seven days. Nothing special with the germinating method , pretty standard (water,paper towel,jiffy pots)

Got a new tent over the holidays aswell (crazy postage costs but I was tired of my small home made box) Trying DWC again and used 25 L buckets each with a nice big air stone. Using some 35% H202 on a weekly basis as my temps are not ideal at the moment. Its still summer here so 31 Degrees in the tent at the moment. Using a homemade co2 system (standard sugar and yeast setup). Also got my first 600 W dual spectrum bulb so hoping to see some good results.

Oh and if anyone knows the best way to take pics with a HPS light. Is there a setting on the cam I can change to help. Not much of a photo Guru and hoping someone here is ;-) Hate that HPS yellow lol

Below is a pic of a biltong maker ;-)

My WSS seem to be growing at a normal rate, compared with the last GHS I grew. Have got a couple with strange crinkley leaves. But other WSS growers had the same with no problems. Best of luck.

Regarding the photo's under HPS! Either get n 5 mins before your lights due on or I found the multiple shot function the best. Where your camera takes a pic. Every second. Burst mode!

glad to see you're here man!!!!

let me ask u, what sort of problems with the wss?

wish u a good grow mate, peace!

Hey hey , i had three that cracked nicely and started showing tiny rootlets after the paper towel but did not go much further than that after two weeks in the jiffy's. Maybe it was my big fumbling hands planting them after that hurt them but i am pretty careful and then the fourth that i put in just seems allot slower than the DH. But don't mind at all and hoping she will catch up soon.

Will have to lol , checked online for some tips and found this aswell. Maybe it will help.

"Finally figured this out last night. Its quite simple, its all in your F stops and Shutter speed.

So, If you have a camera that will let you manually adjust the iris and shutter speed here's what you should have it on....

Iris: F 8 (most iris' go to 11, if its still to bright you may want to stop down)

Shutter 1/1000 - this is about as fast as some shutters are and the faster your shutter speed the clearer and darker the picture will be. Finally, the power of your HPS will have been all but canceled out so you'll want to turn on your flash. You'll get a well lit, but not trashy looking flash photo. Like these...."

Will give it a go tom when i take some more shots :superblue:

What is that "billy" thing? I did not get it what it does.

:)

Sure looks like a fine start to matureness.

Not much to say this early and i await eager until next update.

Hey Mr Tokage , Biltong is like American beef jerky but a million times better as it is spiced to perfection and a very traditional SA food. All that biltong maker is for is for drying the meat and now a propagation box ;-)

Hey Guys

I know its very soon to post again but i just took another two shots with the HPS off so you can see the color properly. WSS, looks like the next set of leaves are slightly crinkled but im sure they will come out fine and hoping it catches up with the DH which seems to be going at 100%

Hey Guys

First thanks to all who have popped in , loads of journals going around so thanks for stopping by.

Nothing to much to report, today marks the end of the first full week in the tent. They are growing well and i expect the usual DWC boost as soon as the roots get down to the water. Hopefully early next week we will see a growth spurt. Going to change the water tomorrow and up the nutrient to 1/2 strength. Been struggling a bit with temps but at least it has got no higher than 33 degrees and that was on one occasion, otherwise they averaging out at 31 to 32. Winter is around the corner so waiting for mother nature to drop the temps for me. Going to get another circulating fan this weekend just to help for now.

Oh nearly forgot to add humidity lol , its been stable at 50% with out having to do anything , lucky me ;)

great i come back and find you with an awesome journal and new gear for your coming back :D

Great presentation and nice looking babies already!

Best of luck for the cup and make us some pretty babies ;)

For the HPS light you can also go in your setting and try to find your white balance options, you will need a white shit of paper under your hps and take a picture of it when it asks you too and it will balance your white for hps ;) but i saw you solved it with another method i didn't know so always good to know :D

Have a good grow!

Was wondering how you took shots under the HPS as only a matter of time before it becomes a problem moving my plants to photo. Worked ok with the multishot mode, but still have that nasty yellow tint.

What a pleasure to watch a really vital strain like that Damnesia !That i fast to grow and is very easy to handle as well. I had such crazy weak strains recently, ould not believe it - they germinate and start out just to wither away.. crazy .. so will drop by often to see a real good strain !

Thank so much Bam and sorry to hear about the bad luck you have been having. Must say i agree with you though. You can see how well she grows. Going to put some more pics tomorrow but i think if all goes well she will be a keeper.

Hello all , hope you guys are well

Nothing to much to report , there roots are finally dropping down to the water after breaking through the jiffy pots (ill take some root porn soon). Added 1 teaspoon of cal/mag per DWC bucket yesterday when taking some photos. Temps are still averaging 31c but not to concerned (they seem to be coping), the temps should be coming down as it gets colder and topped up my homemade co2 yesterday and they seem to be handling.

All the rest of the info are on the pics ;) but to explain the nutes , there on 9g power feed which brought them to 380ppm and after the cal-mag this shot to 490ppm.

DH has grown 5 cm in 4 days and WS has grown 4.5 cm
