GREEN O's HSO Desert Diesel, Lost Coast OG, Bubba Kush Organic grow VEG Day 21!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello Hunter's ,


 I seem's it's that time again, for me to crack some new bean's!!! Staying true to my nature i am switching thing's up a little bit yet again, this time around i am doing a full organic grow. I am starting the seed's in beer cups in standard pro mix , they wil be in the cup's till some nice root development goes on then transplanted into a rich organic mixture.

I plan on using only pure water for this grow but since i am using a new organic mixture i am gonna play it by ear to see how the development progress's. 

the rich organic medium i am using is something i will most likely be working with for a while as i have mixed a bunch of it , the organic mix is pretty simple. I mixed ruffly 60 L's of promix with 40 L's of Fertilo ( composted chicken manure) and with 30 L's of Sea compost with Peat, seaweed and shrimp. i have been told this is sort of a hot mixture which is ideal for my purpose's i plan on layering this mixture the bottom 60% of of my 2 gallon pot's with the organic mixture the top 40% with pro mix so as not to burn the new root's after transplanting . i also have a bag of bone meal that i haven't decided if it's necessary to use or not. I am open to suggestion for anyone with organic growing experience indoor's in pot's as this is somewhat new to me i used to make my own soil outdoor's but for bed's and the plant' i put in it where always well vegged. 


Below is some picture's of the Fertilo and sea compost bag's and a list of the analysis of the content's,






Composted chicken manure


The analysis is achieved with final product at maximum moisture capacity 
Total Nitrogen (N) - 1,2%

Soluble Potash (K2O) - 1,2% 
Maximum moisture - 48% 
Organic matter - 33% - See more at: http://www.fafard.ca/en/produit/fertilo_composted_chicken_manure/#sthash.0hircasp.dpuf


Sea compost known in Canada as Bio Soil




Composted manure, sphagnum peat moss, shrimp flour, seaweed


The analysis is achieved with final product at maximum moisture capacity 
Total Nitrogen (N) - 1,2% 
Available phosphoric acid (P2O5) - 0,7% 
Soluble Potash (K2O) - 0,6% 
Calcium (Ca) - 1% 
Organic matter - 33% 
Maximum moisture - 55% - See more at: http://www.fafard.ca/en/produit/sea_compost_with_peat_seaweed_and_shrimp/#sthash.PU0lWOzs.dpuf


As for the promix it isent the name brand but the same basic thing,

the company i am using instead of promix is Berger's and the line is BM1



ingredient's and info:

Incubated pH = 5.4 - 6.2 Coarse peat moss; Horticultural perlite; Horticultural Vermiculite; Dolomitic limestone; Calcitic limestone; Non-ionic wetting agent


Ok so i will be planting the seed's today and will get back to you guy's as soon as they pop!!!

the seed's i am popping are 

2 bean's of GHSC flowerbomb Kush

1 bean of HSO desert diesel

1 bean of HSO lost coast OG


ill be back asap with the fresh popped seedling's until then stay green!

well another nice grow is about to happen in here, watchout hunters :P


Best of luck for this other run man! I hope the full organic grow will make you happy and give you nice results! Don't forget that flowerbomb is a small lady give her a nice veg if you want to get your usual yeilds ;) even like this it is pretty "low yeilder" if you compare it to chemdog etc.. but what a result :D


Have a good grow man as usual i'm around to follow :rabbi:

Thank's for the head's up ! Since there isent a hole abundance of grow's on the Flowerbomb Kush yet i was kinda struggling on how long to veg for. i went on the assumption that while Og kush is a lower yielding strain green crack is a skunk X afgani and is a medium to high producer so i wasn't sure what to do but everything i have seen from the FBK so far has been single cola dominate shorter and very kush influenced in growth. so i figure i am just gonna be happy with whatever i get off it , the problem is i don't have 2 area's to grow just one like you probably already know and both the lost coast og and the desert diesel are higher yielding strains one being the diesel obviously is gonna be a bigger plant and the lost coast OG was bred specifically to boost the yeild of the original OG in cali because alot of strain's grown outdoor's in cali are bred for both quality and yield so i'm gonna assume it's also gonna be a bigger plant so i don't wanna veg too long as i am growing 4 plant's and my space is limited im really only gonna be able to do like maybe 3 week's veg time.


to be honest i am most worried about the diesel  that chemdog i grew was massive i doubt i could fit 4 plant's that size in my closet and it was vegged for 4 week's. So i am gonna  go for 3 week's this time . In my situation it would actually be good to have some smaller plant's because i am sure the diesel will be a decent size. i will make the canopy even regardless of the height of the plant's i always just raise up the shorter one if need be. the other option would be topping the diesel at the 3rd week and going for 4 week's veg i might do that actually. Ill figure something out i usually make a plan at the beginning of a grow and then end up doing thing's completely different by the end.  


Ok so thank's everyone else for stopping by! Good news today i woke up and all 4 seed's popped at the same time!!! This is why i don't mess around with the paper towel method or using a shot glass, I just take the seed's plant them in the soil in the right way so the tap root goes down which is ass end up just look at a seed and youll figure out what's the ass end. if you can't figure it out look at a seed that the tap has just sprouted it always come's out one end of the seed so you wanna plant the seed so the opposite end is pointing up . Add water and wait  and you'll see great germination rate's  simple and easy! 

anyway' ill be back in a bit with picture's of the fresh seedling's!!!!!! until then stay green!!!

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAY 2 from seed!!!


Ok so like i said all the seed's popped at the same time yesterday! they are all developing nicely, however one of the Flowerbomb kush seed's shell's opened up but didnt fully fall off right away so it isen't quite as opened up as the other's but that will sort it self out as the new leaflet's develop. Aside from that everything i developing nicely and doing good. 


i have the seedling's under a 400W metal halide bulb which i will use for the veg once i switch over i will be using hps. the seedling's are in those red beer cup's and the medium i am using for the seedling's is just a basic promix once the plant's are developed enough i will transplant them into my rich organic soil mixture. so yeah right now that's all there is to share, so here are the photo's enjoy and stay green!

UPDATE!!! Day 8 of veg!!!!

 Alright so thing's are going good, sort of. i left the fan too low an the medium dried out a little this week not much longer then i have before with seedling's in cup's the two Humboldt seed organisation plant's where fine but the FBK really didn't like it and the embryonic leafs turned yellow, i know this happen's naturally sometime's but in this case it happened directly after the medium dried out a bit and the heat was a little hotter because i point my fan at the light bulb so i can bring the light closer to my plant's. one of the FBK's even had a tad bit of yellowing on the first leaf set on the tip's. I added a very tiny amount of Powder feeding to my water less then the 0.25 G's per L and watered  and turned the fan back to full and the seedling's seem to be recovering nicely.


Since dust pointed out to me that the FBK's are lower yielding and i am using organic's and only a 20 day veg i made the decision to add another plant to the mix. I might regret this later but hell i have 2 more 150W light's if i need to add alittle more light i'm set but i am hoping i won't have to and that the plant's will be short enough to fit under the 400W nicely i'm adding some mylar later this week as well.


And one last thing i didn't like the way the seedling's where responding to the MH so i switched to the HPS my logic to this is that the HPS has more lumen's , i only did that yesterday so ill have to wait and see if i notice a difference in growth.

ok so i transplanted the plant's about 2 - 3 day's ago now, i did so because in the cup's the plant's where not doing so well . i am convinced now that starting seed's in smaller starter cups stunt's the growth of seedling's every time i have done it the leaf's start considerably smaller then when i just start them in a big container. so anyway's i have some bad new's as well the FBK's were looking really sickly the smaller one before transplanting had really weak stem and slowed growth the bubba kush that i started like 3 or 4 day's after i cracked the FBK's surpassed the smaller FBK so i decided to kill it. then when i transplanted all the rest of the other 4 plant's everything went fine, but yesterday i noticed burn mark's on the second FBK but nothing so damaging that it was drastic then i woke up today and the stem did the same thing as the other FBK it was weak and barely holding up the plant. so i decided to take out both FBK's i will do a full FBK grow next grow and do it right but i didn't wanna chance having a stunted plant in my closet taking up space that could be better utilized by a healthy plant. So i am now gonna do a 4 week veg Topping each plant on day 21  and flowering after day 28. All the other plant's are doing great . i will add some updated picture soon .

UPDATE!!!! DAY 17 from seed!!!


 Ok everything is doing good, it's kinda strange for me now that the FBK's are gone this is the first grow i have done in a long time without any green house strain's so we will see how it goes. So far these strain's are looking pretty nice growth wise and ill be happy to get to see them with a nice veg period.  So the transplant went well and all the remaining plant's rebound in no time. the desert diesel and the lost coast og already have a nice scent when you touch the leaf's so i am excited to see how they are when resin start's pumping out. the bubba kush was started alittle late and is only on day 14 i believe but it's already totally caught up to the other two plant's in size . so far i have been giving them just water  this medium require's less frequent watering compared to coco as it retain's much more water so that's something that i have to get used to a side from that everything is going great. now for the photo's.

Damn man sorry to hear about the FBK's, like Blackchimney said the rest are looking top notch so it may not have been anything you did at all. Those are some powerful strains, and they look super healthy, gonna be a nice grow and some sweet organic bud!!! Best of luck bro :)

Hey smokey  and everyone else,


        yeah it suck's about the Flower Bomb Kush but i no what happened and it was sort of my fault sort of not. earlyer before it happened i allowed the plant's out to much the FBK's really didn't like it the one most affected i killed before transplanting because it was stunted so much that the bubba kush surpassed it. so that was intentional but it woulden't have mattered because the other FBK which was less affected by he drying out that happened a week and a bit before once transplanted into the rich medium it kinda curled up the leaf's and had burn mark's and then the next day the plant's stem was so weak it wasn't even holding it self up so i kill it. so yeah it was my mistake i'm using a new medium   plus i started he seedling's in pro mix a medium i have used many time's before but not for a while now and forgot that it doesent retain wate,  as long as a rich soil so i caused my seedling's stress by letting them dry out too much.


UPDATE!!!! DAY 21 From seed!!!!!


anyway's as far as the other plant's are concerned everything is going great. the Desert diesel was ready for it's first topping on day 19, the other 2 plant's where topped on day 20 so yesterday morning.  they are all rebounding nicely the Diesel is like i hasn't even skipped a step, the OG needed day to rebound but is doing great and the bubba kush was as if i didn't top it, instant rebound!  I'm gonna be vegging for another week to let them recover then ill go into flowering. as far as the transplanting that was done a week ago , all of the plant's have nice white fussy root's coming out he bottom of the pot. so obviously the plant's are loving the organic medium as they have been receiving only water and all plant's are nice and green and lush. so here's the photo's !


HSO Desert Diesel ( Amherst 81st X Diesel ) 





As you can see in this next picture, Keeping the light's close to the plant in veg ensure's the lateral branch's receive adequate light penetration allowing the lower bud branch's to surpass the leaf's from the node's above!



In this next picture you can see the three day old cut left over from the topping and the new shoot's now developing! This in combination with keeping the light's close will ensure that the plant grow's bushy with multiple top's all competing for the top position evening out the canopy! 



and here is a shot of the fresh fussy root's coming out the bottom of the container just 7 day's after transplanting!




HSO Bubba Kush ( OG kush X West Coast dog X Old World Kush)




Here is the fresh cut from the topping done yesterday and the new shoot's already developing!





HSO Lost Coast OG ( Lost Coast OG Elite clone X Emerald OG)






Here is another exsample of why keeping the light's close even in veg is important , here you can see on a plant topped only yesterday so this is not from being topped you can see the lowest lateral branch is already almost reaching the top cola on both branch's coming out of that node! this plant will develop a nice bush even tho is alittle stressing from the light's being close compared to the other's in the end it will pay off however it's important to no how close is too close and never crossing that line.





And here is a group shot of the plant's . notice how close he light is that is a 400W hps i could go even closer if i wanted to but this is sufficient. in order to keep the light close i have a 10  inch fan pointed directly at the bulb of the light on full blast and a constant exchange of fresh cold air from outside. temperature in grow room is 24 degree's Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit.  





Ok that's it for this week, i have a big week coming up so until next time stay green!!!


here are a few bud shot's of my smoke for christmas!!!
