What’s up guys, I’m new here. Been reading through some threads and everyone seems super nice and haven’t seen much in the trolling department! Not too sure how to connect with folks on here, I guess it’s up to you to respond? Like I said, I’m new to this, new to social media, I just love to grow. So a little bit about my setup…
In my apartment ( oklahoma) I can only run a 2x4x6 tent right now cause I’m positive the apt mgmt would object to what’s goin on, even tho I’m a legal patient in a legal state… I digress… in my secret tent I am currently running a single Dark Ghost Train [Grape Ape x Ghost Train Haze] in my own supersoil mix in a 10 gal pot. (At the lake right now, will post pics when I get back tonite) it’s running under a Electric Sky 180 rn for veg and im hoping to get an ES300 for flower to have a nicer yield. I have ran 2 5 gal pots in there before (autos) and had success. They turned out pretty huge for autos, both were close to 48" tall. Blueberry(dutch passion) and Kings Kush (GHSC) . I used only fox farm soil and nutes on that run (1st grow) and had a lot of issues, as expected. After that run I did a single auto NYC Diesel (Barneys) in ocean forest only again with dry amendments and grew some pretty decent flower with some alright smell and taste but I knew I could do better with drying to get a better result. So between this NYC run and my current DGT run, there was a City Slicker run. I got 2 female clones from a buddy who couldn’t finish them. He gave them to me ready to flip into flower. I flowered the City Slicker [ Gelato and I think Stardawg] for about 6 weeks. I wanted to try a 1000w hps light in my 2x4 for flower( yes, I am now laughing at me too… smh) and had a ton of issues with temp and RH control, pH problems, and the final straw was the poor airflow leading to powdery mildew. While trying to fix all these issues in week 6 in an apt complex, it got smelly very quickly. I got larger ducting and inline fans installed. I did everything I could to get it all under control but even after installing the new ducting,fans,carbon filter, it still smelled up my apt, and it was starting to be pretty noticeable from the parking lot, 35 yards away. I had to pull the plug on those sad day. But since that run I’ve learned a lot about what went wrong and how it went wrong and how to avoid it. A lot of it boiled down to me being lazy as a grower and kinda cocky about my NYC diesel turning out pretty decent. I thought I could turn on autopilot as a rookie and learned quickly this is not the case. I also did a lot of research on microbiology in soil, cannabis breeding, phenohunting etc and really enjoyed it. I have begun collecting what I believe to be high quality genetics from reputable breeders. Recently I got #1. Tangie regs (CFF)
#2. Ghost Train Haze #1 regs (RareDankness)
#3. DJ short Blueberry F5 regs (OldWorldGenetics)
#4. Alien Rift IBL (Ocean Grown) not sure how many of these or if reg/fem ?
They just got delivered so I will get them tonite when I get back and update this. I plan on doing a breeding project with some of these strains when I move out and expand my grow setup. I have a few more strains I plan on collecting as mothers to then take the Male pollen from some of these #1-4 strains and crossing them and lookin for a superstar. Some of the mothers I was considering were:
Wedding Cake (new from Barneys)
Putang (massmedical) and all the freebies that you get with big orders.
What would you guys like to see? Ask me questions about how I grow. I look forward to hearing from you!
Also sidenote: I also tried a Black Dog LED 1000w light in my 2x4 lol
Major fail, my plants were instantly screaming no no no. So whenever I’m able to expand my grow space, I have 2 awesome 1000w lights to experiment with right away. Will be doing a side by side comparison grow, so stay tuned for that one.
