I’m going to be posting my grows and my pictures here. First off is Scott’s OG x Black Dominia Fem seeds from crop king that I crossed with Paonia Purple Paralyzer pollen from @DougDawson. No pictures of seeds or germination cause I forgot. This is also my first-time doing hydro so there were a few learning curves. Like using a 1200GPH pump…
I germinated the seeds quite some time ago in soil and the plants got infested with thrips. The plants got quite upset and I didn’t know if they would survive. I made a hydro cloner and topped each of my infested plants on whatever top or branch was healthy. I then dipped each into a cup of warm water, dawn dish soap, and neem oil. Replenishing the neem oil every few clones. I continued doing this for 3 weeks, every 2 to 4 days. Thrips eliminated. The plants became much healthier and grew great roots.
Building the hydroponics setup was a learning experience. One of my weakness’s is spatial management as anyone who has seen my grows can attest to. On this grow I have 9 buckets plus 1 reservoir in a 5’ x 7’ room. I used a 1200GPH inline water pump when a 250GPH pump would have sufficed. That was installed later.
Once my new room was setup, I moved my best 9 plants into the room and proceeded to kill 3 of them, leaving me with 6. Which I affectionately named #1 through #4. Later renamed to Scott’s Purple Paralyzer #1 through #4. They didn’t like the change at first but once they settled in, they took off.
First week in the grow room.
Day 18, #4
Root mass of #4
Day 39, This is #4 base
A couple of the plants started leaking this red sap like liquid. I’m really not sure why.
Day 40, Flipped to 12/12
Day 61, I gave em a haircut and shaved their legs
Day 76, #3
Day 79, #3
Here is where I introduce you to my seed tent. I took clones of all my plants before I flipped them, 3 clones per plant, 18 total, and put them in my cloner. From the cloner I took 1 each of my 2 favourite females, #3 and #4 and 1 each of my 2 males, # 5 and #6. I put them in the tent a flipped them to 12/12 after 5 days of vegging in the tent.
Day 96, Harvest
Here is the seed tent on day 96
As a special treat, here is the 13g Cannagar with 1.3g shatter, wrapped in hemp sheet, in a custom walnut case with red velvet I gave to my good friend on his stag over the summer.
I’m doing some other stuff at the moment as well that I’ll be posting here. I hope you all enjoyed, happy growing.
